The Mystery Adventure Continues With The Release Of ‘Shadows On The Vatican: Wrath’ Now Available For The PC

Immersive Point-And-Click Adventuring Inspired By Historical Events!

Pescara, Italy, March 27 th 2014: Indie developers ‘Adventure Productions’ and ‘10 th Art Studio’ are proud to announce that ‘Shadows On The Vatican - Act 2: Wrath’ is now available for download for the PC. The game is currently available on the Zodiac ( http://www.zodiac-store) store, and it will be distributed on multiple other stores in the following weeks (Steam, Desura, etc.)

Featuring an intriguing plot, murders, deceit and corruption, the brand new release marks the second of four scheduled episodes. Inspired by real events in recent Italian history, the Vatican series is a thrilling point-and-click adventure series freely adapted by the bestselling novel ‘In God’s Name’, by esteemed author David Yallop.

In the first installment of the game ( Greed), ex-priest James Murphy answers a mysterious call for help from his friend Cristoforo while visiting Rome from Chicago. The disappearance of a briefcase containing compromising documents is enough to convince James that his friend is a victim of something shady and sinister. The Vatican's involvement and some strange parallels with his own traumatic past inspire James to get to the bottom of this mystery. Along this dangerous and disturbing path, James finds the most unlikely travelling companion who will question his deepest beliefs. And so the two characters begin both a physical journey in search of the truth, and a metaphysical exploration of the inner soul and the darkest secrets that everyone hides, even a "champion of the faith" like James.

In the second episode just released ( Wrath), Silvia is hunted by the person behind the attempted murder she was assigned to commit, she knows the only option remaining is to face the deadly conspirator openly. In the heart of the local underworld, Silvia will discover a game of power in which everyone is an expendable pawn. A forced alliance with her ex-target seems to be the only way to avoid the inevitable, but if they want to dispel the secretive mists of the Vatican, James and Silvia will have to come to terms with their limits... The game features 10 stunningly beautiful HD locations to explore (art directed by Lorenzo Ruggiero, of Marvel & DC Comics fame), and well integrated challenging puzzles.
