[This unedited press release is made available courtesy of Gamasutra and its partnership with notable game PR-related resource GamesPress.]

Building on their success of porting the thriller game Yesterday to smarphones and tablets , Pendulo Studios, alonside publisher Bulky Pix, is back on the App Store with Hollywood Monsters , scheduled for release on December 6.

Hollywood Monsters (aka The Next Big Thing) is an adventure game that revisits the golden era of horror movies in a modern and funny adventure, packed with references to the horror genre's most popular movies and series.

Hollywood, 1940's:

What would happen if the monsters we see in horror movies were actually played by real monsters? And what if they were forced to act in kids’ movies, romantic comedies -- even musicals? And what would happen if they became fed up with these inferior roles and decided to rebel?

These questions, and hundreds of others, will require answering by Liz Allaire, a talented journalist who can’t count to four, and Dan Murray, a self-styled macho man with an acute fear of beetles. Your job is to assist these two incompatibles in a mystery-adventure that will put your brain to the ultimate test!

Features:

? A cast of colorful and wacky characters, including a host of legendary

monsters and creatures from classic horror movies

? Production, graphics, and sound worthy of a great animation movie

? The zaniest and craziest dialogue you will ever encounter in a video game!

? Works perfectly on your smartphone or tablet!

? Useful and well-designed ”help” interface -- you’ll never get stuck, we promise!

? Languages include English, French, German, Spanish and Italian. Voice-over is in English
