For Immediate Release
DALLAS (April 29, 2009) - Leading casual game developer MumboJumbo today launched Samantha Swift and the Golden Touch, the follow-up to the hit casual adventure Samantha Swift and the Hidden Roses of Athena. The advenure-style game takes heroine Samantha on a quest to uncover the secrets surrounding the Golden Touch of King Midas through hidden-object game-play, puzzles and a story that spans the globe.
"We're excited to give fans the second chapter in the Samantha Swift story," said Matt Lichtenwalter, vice president of product development of MumboJumbo. "In Sam's new adventure, more of her character is revealed, and the player is able to discover more about the larger mystery at play in the franchise."
In Samantha Swift and the Golden Touch, Ms. Swift's new benefactor asks her to track down Alexander the Great's Scroll of Wealth and tells her she can collect other finds along the way for The Museum of Secrets Lost. But the offer is too good to be true, and soon the fearless archeologist finds herself in a race to unravel ancient secrets surrounding the mysterious blessing and curse of King Midas and his golden touch. The engrossing story is set against a backdrop of brilliantly rendered artwork and highly-polished game-play.
"Players responded so well to Samantha's first adventure, and they were immediately asking us for more," said Lichtenwalter. "In The Golden Touch, players will find interactive hidden-object levels and a number of really clever puzzles to solve along the way."
Samantha Swift and the Golden Touch is available for digital download at leading casual gaming portals, and it will make its retail debut in June. To learn more about Samantha Swift, you can visit her MySpace page, find her on Facebook, or go to www.mumbojumbo.com.
