    SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Casual game lovers rejoice!

    "With Drawn: Trail of Shadows, our in-house Studio team wanted to evolve the way we present the world of Drawn while maintaining the series' critically acclaimed production values," said Patrick Wylie, vice president of Big Fish Studios. "We've created a world with depth that allows you to feel as if you're navigating through the paintings, and an interactive pop-up book that reveals the story as you play. These features combined with the series' award-winning art and music once again establish Drawn as one of the world's premier PR game series."

    For the first time in the series, Drawn: Trail of Shadows features native widescreen support and a beautifully painted 2D world set in a 3D environment. Players will be pulled ever deeper into the Drawn universe, learning the origin of Iris' kingdom while interacting with its myriad unique puzzles.

    Designed from the ground up for any level of player, Drawn: Trail of Shadows multiple hint systems and clues on how to progress through the game ensure that all players – novice to expert – can finish the quest. The hints will range from a nudge in the right direction to specific steps on exactly what needs to be done.
