Hamburg/Germany: March 02, 2007 - She is young, she is pretty and she comes from rich parents: Sunny Blonde has little to worry about in her life. Especially not today: the 17-year-old American beauty is on a luxurious Atlantic cruise with her parents, celebrating their wedding anniversary. But it's not really a party after Sunny's taste - she'd rather be getting down with her friends. That's why she uses every chance she gets to get away from her parents and explore the ship. Just when the ship passes by the Bermuda Islands, the inevitable occurs: a heavy thunderstorm rolls in, the cruise ship is overwhelmed by the sea. Sunny passes out and is transported into one of the vessel's lifeboats
Sunny comes to on a gorgeous sandy beach on an island covered with palm trees. She can barely recall what happened. Still slightly dazed, she does register that there are no other passengers anywhere near - she seems to be stranded on the island all by herself.
But an involuntary stay on a completely unfamiliar island, with no way of knowing how she will ever leave it, is one thing. More severe for Sunny is that all of a sudden she will have to make do without all her luxurious accessories: her cell phone gets no coverage, her make-up is all messed up, and there doesn't appear to be a shopping mall in walking distance. And her troubles are only getting started: through some freak of time and space, she seems to have been transported several centuries back and landed in the middle of an age ruled by pirates and buccaneers.
Quite a problem for Sunny Blonde - and it's up to PC gamers to solve it in the crazy adventure game So Blonde, which dtp entertainment unveiled today. Renowned adventure game writer Steve Ince ("Broken Sword") is responsible for the game's unusual story. Gamers will not only be faced with adventure and puzzling riddles but will see the protagonist grow from rich, spoiled luxury girl to a courageous survivor.
So Blonde, developed by French team Wizarbox has it all: a beautiful (anti-)heroine, jet black humor that goes far beyond trite clichés, gorgeous cartoon graphics and a ton of gameplay surprises.
dtp entertainment will publish So Blonde worldwide under the ANACONDA label, with a November release date set for German-speaking territories.
