MICROÏDS ANNOUNCES THE RELEASE OF ADVENTURE GAME REFERENCE "SYBERIA" ON MAC

Montreuil, Febuary 27 2014. Only a few weeks after the success of the Syberia Android release, Microïds enjoys the adventure games community with the launch of the title on Mac for the first time.

Along with the development of highly expected Syberia 3, French publisher Microïds keeps sharing their all-time masterpiece with the passionate of the genre, no matter their favorite support. This is now Mac owners’ turn to discover or rediscover this title designed by untypical and world famous author Benoit Sokal (Amerzone, Canardo…).

According to the press and the public, the strength of the series is to deal with human or society themes through a wonderful fanciful universe populated by complex automatons. With Syberia, through Kate Walker’s adventure, a New York lawyer, players go on an initiatory trip where they wonder about their ability to give up their every-day life to pursue their dream.

The game begins as the heroin arrives in Valadilene, in the heart of the French Alps with the mission to purchase, for her company, an automaton factory whose owner just passed away. Kate quickly discovers that Anna Voralberg had an heir, her younger brother Hans.

To close the deal, she has to find this man who has disappeared for decades for unknown reasons. Through this journey, she will make several encounters that will change her vision of the world for ever and reveal her true personality.

" Syberia " is fully dubbed and subtitled in English, French, German, Italian and Spanish. It is available Febuary 27, 2014 on Mac.
