Clandestiny, a family orientated puzzle adventure game, was launched today by GRL Games (http://www.grlgames.net), the company long time industry veteran Graeme Devine founded after leaving Apple late last year. It’s available at an introductory price of US$9.99 at the newly launched Apple App Store.
Here’s how the game is described: “Clandestiny combines classic adventure, animated story and fun puzzles. There are over 40 minutes of animated story to go with the over 30 puzzles in the game. Join Andrew and Paula on this spooky adventure as you experience the castle’s eerie rooms and hidden passageways, and encounter the angst-ridden ghosts of the family MacPhiles. Solve “wee” rascally riddles and persnickety puzzles to learn the fate of this dimwitted clan.”
Clandestiny has three levels. The game was originally released by Devine when he was at Trilobyte in 1996 as the company’s third title, following The 7th Guest and 11th Hour. The game has been rewritten from scratch for the Mac, with new tougher AI for the puzzles, new navigation and brighter environments.
