Microids and DreamCatcher have announced that Syberia, Microids' latest adventure game, will be published and distributed in the US by The Adventure Company, DreamCatcher's new adventure games label. The game, which has already been released in Europe and Canada, lets players assume the role of a young lawyer from New York on a mission to track down a missing heir to a mysterious European estate. The game took more than two years to develop and involved the work of more than 35 people.
"What we are aiming at with Syberia is to thrust the player into a fantastic, yet at the same time realistic, universe that will guarantee a unique entertainment experience," said Benoît Sokal, the author of the game. "The exceptional visual artistry of the prerendered backgrounds, the depth and richness of the plot, and the variety of characters encountered throughout the quest make this game truly one of a kind."
Syberia is scheduled for release in the US this fall. For more information, take a look at our previous coverage of the game.
