Seattle-Based Casual Gaming Studio Launches Sequel to Original Game Based on Marjorie M. Liu's Bestselling Romance Novel, Tiger Eye
SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - April 12, 2012) - Passionfruit Games, a division of Rally Marketing Group, is pleased to announce its newest release, Tiger Eye: The Sacrifice. In this sequel to Tiger Eye: Curse of the Riddle Box, players step into the role of Dela, who with her new love, Hari, has escaped dangerous pursuers in China only to discover that she and Hari have been followed back to California where they must outwit villains, break an evil curse and find Dela's best friend, whose life is in imminent danger. The game can be purchased online at www.passionfruitgames.com, where the studio is donating $1 for every game sold to a cause that was selected by Passionfruit's Facebook fans.
"We're excited to launch this highly-anticipated game," said Lisa Clarke, Rally CEO. "Melissa Heidrich had a vision two years ago to create games by women, for women, and this latest title delivers an enormously engaging and challenging entertainment experience that we know will be loved by fans of Tiger Eye: Curse of the Riddle Box, as well as people new to the series."
Casual games that can be downloaded to a computer or played on a mobile device are extremely popular among women who see the time spent playing as an "escape" into a different world, whether it be mystery, romance or danger. "We know that romance novels are hugely popular with female readers and wanted to deliver the same sense of excitement through a game," said Melissa Heidrich, studio director for Passionfruit Games. "A large number of casual games today tend to be 'creepy' and have a very dark theme. Tiger Eye: The Sacrifice will be a refreshing and enticing change of pace for players who end up getting drawn in by the story as well as the challenging puzzles and hidden objects."
The game will initially be available for PC, followed soon by a version for Mac and iPad. Tiger Eye: The Sacrifice will be available in English, German, French, Spanish, Japanese, Italian, Dutch and Portuguese.
