Horror-filled hidden object adventure available now for PC, coming soon for Mac

?

ALEXANDRIA, Va., September 23, 2010 - Alawar Entertainment, a leading publisher of casual games, today released Twisted Lands: Shadow Town, the first installment in a new saga that will introduce an unparalleled level of horror to the casual genre. The Collector's Edition is available for PC exclusively from http://www.alawar.com and http://www.bigfishgames.com for $19.95. A free trial version allows players to experience the opening chapters of the hair-raising horror quest.

?

Intended for mature players, Twisted Lands: Shadow Town is a downloadable hidden object game set on a seemingly deserted island shrouded in dark secrets. Players assume the role of a desperate man searching for his wife, who disappeared when their small boat capsized nearby. As he tries to find her, he becomes increasingly aware of the unusual circumstances that led to the disappearance of the island's previous inhabitants -- and ever more vulnerable to the evil that consumed them.

?

The Collector's Edition's special features include a built-in strategy guide and a bonus chapter that can only be unlocked after the main scenario is completed. After piecing together the island's fate in the standard game, Collector's Edition players will enjoy about 25% more gameplay as they try to stay one step ahead of a bloodthirsty horde while attempting to escape from the island. In both scenarios, the player must gather hidden items, solve mind-bending puzzles, and make one spine-chilling discovery after another.

" Twisted Lands: Shadow Town taps into the same primal instincts that make your heart beat faster when you peer into a dark room," says Kirill Plotnikov, vice president of publishing at Alawar. "We are proud to release the Collector's Edition version of this outstanding title, which comes with 25 percent more gameplay than the regular version, at a premium value."
