Samantha Swift and the Hidden Roses of Athena
Claiming to mark the birth of a new "casual adventure" genre.
DALLAS (October 8, 2008) – MumboJumbo, leading developer and publisher, today unveiled their newest game, Samantha Swift and the Hidden Roses of Athena. Unlike other casual game titles, Samantha Swift combines hidden object game-play with puzzles and overlays them on an adventure story, creating the long-awaited casual adventure.
“Samantha Swift is an incredibly fun game—we’ve taken all the things that casual gamers love about our games and combined them to branch out with a new game and a new genre, casual adventure,” said Mark Cottam, CEO of MumboJumbo. “This is an episodic story that features really quality artwork and complex yet relatable characters, which our players will really enjoy.”
Samantha Swift and the Hidden Roses of Athena takes players on an adventure through six exotic locations as the heroine Sam, archeologist, adventurer and curator for The Secrets Lost Museum. When Sam sets out to find the Scepter of Zeus, she stumbles upon one of the greatest finds of our lifetime, the shield of Athena. However, she also runs into Ravena Stryker, a greedy treasure hunter who is keeping a close watch over Sam. As Sam travels the globe in search of the missing Roses of Athena, she’s in constant contact with associates Dr. Norwynn Butler and Adam Woodson, who help her solve puzzles by providing important information and assistance along the journey.
“We’re really proud to bring this kind of classic story with innovative game play to a new audience,” said Cottam. “I think that players will really enjoy getting to know Sam, and following her on this and her many adventures to come.”
Key features of the Samantha Swift casual adventure game include:
• More than 700 objects to seek and find in more than 50 levels
• Combines two popular game modes: Hidden Object and Puzzle-Solving Adventure
• Six Roses to recover to complete the Treasure of Athena
