Nearwood Collector’s Edition for PC via Steam Released

MINNEAPOLIS, Minnesota (April 16, 2014) — Viva Media announces the launch of Nearwood Collector’s Edition, a casual adventure game, for PC via Steam. Now, through the Steam entertainment platform, PC owners can control the fate of a magical world in the Nearwood Collector’s Edition.

A captivating storyline and thrilling gameplay sets the stage for hours of quality entertainment. Excitement unfolds in a series of rigorous challenges with twists and turns along the way — all amid beautifully animated scenes. Gameplay highlights in Nearwood Collector’s Edition include:

·         24 mind-bending puzzles to solve; discover why time came to a standstill

·         60 scenes to explore through the magical land of Nearwood

·         Bonus activity! Find cute little creatures (Snoop-Sees) hiding in each scene

Players travel through a mystic place full of charming characters shadowed by pending disaster. A new threat looms over Nearwood: a cold deadly winter has cast over the land. The once green and lush landscape is frozen in ice and snow, driving away the gnomes from a quiet village on the outskirts of the kingdom. The force of evil lurks around every turn. Fey, the Advisor, calls upon Jane for help; they inch their way towards the source of the killing cold, which turns out to be more than a mere fluke of weather. An ancient destructive force has awakened to take hold of Nearwood. After thousands of years trapped in captivity, the powerful Killiman is back for revenge!

The journey winds through an enchanted land full of gnomes, Snoop-Sees and other fanciful folks facing peril. Jane and Fey help villagers survive the ravages of a deep winter freeze and unravel the mystery that shrouds the kingdom with doom.

The collector's edition is packed with exciting features that lead players through the captivating kingdom of Nearwood. The extras in this casual adventure game add to the fun.
