Toronto, Canada. March 22, 2007 - The Adventure Company, the leading publisher of adventure games worldwide, is pleased to announce that it will be releasing Agatha Christie: Evil Under the Sun for Windows in October 2007. Based on the novel Evil Under the Sun by the world's best-known mystery author, this is the third installment in The Adventure Company's successful Agatha Christie video game series.
Famous detective Hercule Poirot is back in typical style, turning up at just the right time to begin an investigation into the murder of a famous actress during what should have been the start of a relaxing holiday.
Taking on the role of Hercule Poirot, players can scour a stunning tropical island for clues and delve deeper into the mysterious relationships between over 20 unique characters to search out the killer.
There are a number of added features and improvements that have been made to Evil Under the Sun based on player feedback, including a more streamlined inventory system, character dialogue choices that will impact events as the player progresses in the game, less repetitive detective footwork, and more diverse environments and locales to explore.
"Agatha Christie fans will finally get the chance to step into the shoes of famous detective Hercule Poirot," said Richard Wah Kan, President and CEO of The Adventure Company. "We are thrilled to continue the series based on another world renowned classic by the Queen of Crime."
AWE Games and Lee Sheldon are teaming up once again. Their goal is to create even more stunning and varied environments for players to explore and enhance their experience by adding a host of new puzzles. Intriguing plot twists will be introduced based on how the player chooses to interact with the cast of colorful characters.
The anticipated ESRB rating is 'T' for Teen and the anticipated PEGI rating is 12+. Agatha Christie: Evil Under the Sun will be Windows Vista compatible.
