Survival horror game set in the Himalayas, for a change.

DEEP SILVER ANNOUNCES CURSED MOUNTAIN, A SURVIVAL HOROR GAME SET IN THE HIMALAYAS

Designed Exclusively for Wii, Cursed Mountain is Set for Worldwide Release in 2009

Hermosa Beach, Calif. July 31, 2008 Global video game developer and publisher Deep Silver today revealed the first details of Cursed Mountain, a survival horror game produced exclusively for Wii TM by their internal development studio and its partners.

Set in the late 1980s, gamers will take on the role of a fearless mountaineer as he climbs into the Himalayas on a quest to find his lost brother. As he ascends the mountain, he encounters an ancient curse: the souls of the people who died in that region are stuck in limbo, caught in the Shadow World. Villagers, pilgrims, mountaineers and Buddhist monks dead but not yet reincarnated are all that is left on the mountain. Terrible visions will disorient him, and ghosts and demons block his path. But the question remains is his brother still alive?

Designed exclusively for Wii, Cursed Mountain features rich visuals and breathtaking views set on the roof of the world in the life threatening death zone, the entire game world is visible from every level. The gesture-based combat system takes full advantage of the Wii motion sensitivity. Players will use the Wii Remote TM to look around, sense the environment, climb and fight enemies.

"With a fresh setting, gloomy atmosphere and the innovative use of the Wii controls, Cursed Mountain will deliver a unique, terrifying game play experience," said Hannes Seifert, Managing Director at the Deep Silver development studio. "Deep Silver is confident that Cursed Mountain will help to further establish our international presence, and help expand the survival horror game genre on the Wii platform."

Cursed Mountain is scheduled for a worldwide release for Wii in 2009. For more information, visit: http://cursedmountain.deepsilver.com
