Today, Focus Home Interactive and Pendulo Studio reveal the first official screenshots of "Runaway, A Twist of Fate", the third and last adventure of Brian and Gina. This last episode will indeed close the saga.
The first two Runaway episodes brought back the success of point and click adventure games in Europe and captivated nearly a million players. After a colourful second episode which took place in the islands of Hawaii, the creators of the game lead us into a more mature and urban universe for this last adventure with Brian and Gina. Following the story of the previous game, A Twist of Fate is also very much an independent game allowing players that have never played a Runaway game before to fully enjoy this brand new adventure. For the very first time in the Runaway series, the game will allow you to control Brian as well as Gina who has an important part to play in the story.
As shown on these images, Runaway: A Twist of Fate has visually improved. Thanks to a new graphic engine, the game now has high resolution backgrounds, more detailed and expressive characters, and more realistic animations... The interface has also been improved and offers an inventory allowing you to check each item from every angle possible. You will also find an ingenious hint system that will guide you throughout difficult situations without giving away the solution to the puzzles. Of course, both the particular visual style and the omnipresent humour that appealed to the players have been retained in order to make A Twist of Fate a rich episode, full of novelties and unexpected turns yet still faithful to the Runaway spirit.
Runaway « A Twist of Fate » is scheduled to be released in the fourth quarter of 2009 on PC and Nintendo DS.
