The Adventure Company and Chorion have today announced a partnership to develop PC games based on the novels of Agatha Christie. Today's announcement marks the first time that Agatha Christie Ltd. (a Chorion company) has granted a license to a games developer for role-playing mystery games.

"There can be no stronger signal of the enduring popularity of Agatha Christie's works than their continued adaptation to other mediums," says Mathew Prichard, Agatha Christie's grandson and chairman of Agatha Christie Ltd. "Adapting her stories for completely new formats, such as PC gaming, allows us to introduce classic mysteries to whole new audiences and keep them relevant into the decades to come."

"Today's partnership unlocks the gameplay inherent in Agatha Christie's elaborate plots and turns players into interactive sleuths," added Richard Wah Kan, CEO of DreamCatcher Interactive. "The addition of these titles to our lineup solidifies our commitment to adventure gaming and will surely strengthen our position as the leading adventure game publisher."

The Adventure Company plans to release a series of five Agatha Christie-inspired PC games over the next six years, although specific titles have not been announced at this time. We'll bring you more information as soon as it becomes available.
