Journey to the Center of the Moon

Epic graphical adventure based on
a renowned Jules Verne Novel

Toronto, May 16, 2005. The Adventure
Company, a leading publisher of PC adventure games, today announced it will
publish Journey to the Center of the Moon for Windows®. A captivating graphic
adventure based on legendary author Jules Verne’s From the Earth the Moon, this
game will debut at the 2005 Electronic Entertainment Expo.

In this not so distant past, the far
side of the moon conjured up the most fascinating theories. Even some of the
world’s greatest scientific minds believed that our natural satellite had an
atmosphere that could, and did, support various life forms. Based on the premise
of Verne’s novel, Journey to the Center of the Moon follows as a group of
scientists create a space capsule with the intent of landing on the moon’s
surface. Where as in the novel, their mission fails, leaving them floating high
above the lunar surface, in this fascinating adventure, they succeed!

As scientist Michel Ardan, players
are able to wander the surface of the moon in an unstable but breathable
atmosphere and witness the explosion of plant life at dawn. Players will explore
fantastic locations including the space capsule, the lunar surface, an ancient
temple, and other mysterious ruins. They will also encounter a subterranean
civilization inside the moon, as well as the Selenite City, the home of an
ancient but highly intelligent race, the Selenites.

With each step of the journey,
questions arise as to the fate of the Selenite people: Did they deteriorate,
like so many of the statues they left behind? Did they leave the surface to seek
refuge in the center of the moon? Once players answer these questions, they may
find their way to back to earth with news of their fantastic discoveries.

The game features a variety of
ingenious puzzles and a unique, built in Intelligence Management system. Actions
made by the player throughout the game, as well as the puzzles they solve, are
awarded points, raising their score and earning the respect of the Selenites.
Along the journey, players will interact with a huge cast of mysterious
characters and creatures.

Journey to the Center of the Moon is
developed by Kheops Studio with an anticipated ESRB of ‘T’ for Teen and
“12+PEGI.” For more information, visit
