Juniper Crescent - The Sapphire Claw


Press Release

29th April 2005

Introducing a new hero for today's gaming generation - he's bold, he's daring, he's oh so smooth, with a sense of self-preservation and leadership that makes him unafraid to delegate when deadly peril rears its head. He's Scout the One-Eyed Cat.

Juniper Crescent - The Sapphire Claw is a cartoon escapade that sees our hero forsake his beloved pastime of lying in the sun to take up the challenge of finding the Sapphire Claw, a fabled cat artefact that few even believe exists.

Steve Ince, writer and designer on Broken Sword - The Sleeping Dragon, creates a wonderful game based on his popular web comic, Juniper Crescent, bringing to life a rich cast of animal characters and interwoven with varied and challenging gameplay.

Juniper Crescent - The Sapphire Claw is a globe trotting mission in which Scout - armed with his wits, charm and a loyal band of animal friends - must deal with a continuing series of obstacles, a host of dynamic characters and danger at every twist and turn. Travelling through a range of exotic locations, the team's various skills and abilities must be fully utilised if the player is to help them achieve their ultimate objectives.

Beat the boss... find the treasure... save the dog!

Juniper Games - Steve Ince has over twelve years experience in the development of quality, groundbreaking titles such as Beneath a Steel Sky, The Broken Sword Trilogy, and In Cold Blood, among others.
