BASINGSTOKE, England (September 26th 2005) - THE ADVENTURE COMPANY release details of their epic point & click, graphic adventure for the PC CDROM, JOURNEY TO THE MOON. The official JOURNEY TO THE MOON website is now live and can be visited at www.journey-to-the-moon.com.
Following the best-selling adventure game "Return to Mysterious Island" comes a new and enthralling instalment inspired by novels "From the Earth to the Moon" and "Around the Moon". Set in the 19th century of the fantastic and extravagant universe of Jules Verne, Journey to the Moon prepares for launch in November, priced at £19.99.
In this not so distant past, the far side of the moon conjured up the most fascinating mysteries, and along with the best scientists, it was believed that our natural satellite had an atmosphere that could support life and was even home to various life forms.
To answer such beliefs, play as Jules Verne's hero Michel Ardan, an eccentric and intrepid French scientist who will open your mind and let your imagination run wild as you embark on this fascinating journey. Discover the ruins of ancient temples, witness amazing events and explore the theories of the novel's characters. Make fantastic discoveries, solve puzzles and venture into the centre of the moon before finding a way to return home with news of your findings.
- Discover beautiful environments on the dark far side of the Moon populated with a host of lunar creatures.
- Pioneer a journey punctuated with ordeals leading you to the secrets of an advanced intelligent civilization.
- Experience a non-linear and exotic voyage taking you beyond your imagination.
- Use the innovative inventory system to combine and create new tools.
- Challenge yourself and strive to improve your "lunar" IQ by actively completing each original puzzle.
