Warsaw, Poland ­– June 24, 2010 – Codeminion ® , leading developer and publisher of award-winning casual games such as Ancient Quest of Saqqarah TM , StoneLoops! of Jurassica TM and Magic Match TM , announced today the launch of Brunhilda and the Dark Crystal TM , a new casual adventure game by TwinBottles TM development studio.

The game takes Brunhilda, a young linguistics student from New York, on an unexpected wild journey to the varied lands of the Magical Realm - a place she thought was just an innocent, weird fantasy of her eccentric aunt. The story focuses on an ancient prophecy and makes Brunhilda personally responsible for solving the great mystery of fading magic and, as it turns out, also saving the world. Together with her bag-entrapped sarcastic demon companion, Brunhilda will learn how to construct a flying broom, dare to disturb sleeping dragons, deal with air pirates and learn the arcane crafts of Wizardry, Alchemy and Telepathy minigames. The story is packed with many twists and turns, humorous dialogues and the gameplay is a mixture of hidden object mechanic, puzzles and point and click quest solving.

Brunhilda and the Dark Crystal most prominent features include:

  • Clever blend of classic adventure and hidden object game mechanics
  • Over 6 hours of gameplay (longer than typical casual game)
  • 10 different lands to visit with multiple locations and NPC characters
  • Engaging, epic and humorous story
  • All character dialogues with full professional voice over
  • Beautiful hand drawn graphics
  • 3 arcane mini-games to master

“The game has been in production for almost two years, but it was all worth the effort. The end result has totally surpassed our expectations and I’m sure that gamers all over the world will appreciate all the attention to detail that Twinbottles put into the game” – says Maciej Biedrzycki, Codeminion co-owner and one of the people responsible for the quality assurance of the game. “We are thrilled by the positive initial reception of the game. We’ve been doing open and closed beta tests for the past two months and the game has already received countless positive and enthusiastic reviews.” – he adds.

Brunhilda and the Dark Crystal TM is immediately available for digital download at the official game website www.brunhildathegame.com and on www.codeminion.com. The universal launch across major game portals is expected by the end of July 2010. The game is currently available for Windows PC’s, with Mac and iPad versions already under development.
