CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED TEXT-ONLY ADVENTURE HITS WINDOWS PHONE 7

March 25, 2011: Now available on the Windows Phone Marketplace is Text Zedventure, the acclaimed text-only adventure that debuted on the Xbox Live Indie Game service in 2010.

In this text-only adventure, you must escape a city ravaged by a mysterious?infection. Explore a deserted residence, train station and shopping centre in?three unique chapters with multiple endings. Each chapter is designed for?replayability, where a single choice can lead to a dramatically different?outcome.

The title supports custom soundtracks and features a trial mode. It can be?purchased for?0.79 / $1.00 /€1.00 from 17 regions worldwide, including?the United States, United Kingdom, Canada and Australia.

What critics have had to say about the Xbox 360 version:

"Matthew Reynolds' moody little masterpiece is surprisingly pacy for a text?game... This is far more gripping than it should be." Official Xbox Magazine UK

"Short but enviably sharp, with a streamlined interface and evocative visual?design... It's a relic, certainly, but a charming and very literate one." Edge?Magazine

"There's a solid understanding of what makes adventure games work here– the?story fills out pleasingly as you follow the breadcrumb trail of options, and?the simple presentation fits extremely well with the grisly story– playing?through the game is a surprisingly tense experience." The Guardian

"Yet despite its simplistic, bare-bones nature, Text Zedventure creates the?kind of tension and atmosphere that most games fail miserably to conjure up...?But it’s gripping and there are some interesting situations and dilemmas that?really made me stop and think about my next decision."
