  The Curse Gets Updated for Valentine’s day

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

Chicago, Ill., Jan. 28, 2013 - The iOS puzzle with a narrative twist, The Curse, is getting an update to include more content with a brand new side-story and 10 additional, holiday themed puzzles.

As players open The Curse, they find Mannequin reading over a diary letter signed from a secret admirer. The contents of the letter are so grand that Mannequin must figure out who sent this Valentine to him. The only way to figure that out is to solve a new set of puzzles to reveal the true name of the secret admirer.

“I have multitudes of adoring fans,” beamed Mannequin. “Even though my intelligence is universally respected, this Valentine speaks to me on another level. I must know who wrote it.”

The 10 all-new levels are based on some of the most popular categories players encounter in the main quest of The Curse. Players will need to solve riddles, tangrams and more to unlock the mystery of Mannequin’s secret admirer.

This is a free update to anyone who has or downloads The Curse app. It will appear on iOS and Android in time for Valentine’s Day.
