We’re thrilled with the way the packaging looks and trust these re-mastered editions will appeal to a broad group of existing and new adventure game fans. The Syberia Collection is a golden opportunity to play all Benoit Sokal games and experience firsthand why they were acclaimed worldwide. The Dracula Trilogy, with being released on this Halloween being very suiting, should really appeal to any gamer, fearing or admiring the Count.”
