THE MONSTER IN YOU COMES TO LIFE!
INTERPLAY RELEASES THE CINEMATIC ADVENTURE,
FRANKENSTEIN: THROUGH THE EYES OF THE MONSTER (TM)
Irvine, California, November 9, 1995 -- This haunting season brings
the Monster in you to life with Interplay's release of the chilling
cinematic adventure, Frankenstein: Through The Eyes Of The
Monster(TM). Tim Curry stars as Dr. Frankenstein in this
classic monster tale with a twist...YOU are the Monster. From
your first waking thoughts to the rantings of your creator, you
will see, hear, and experience an adventure like never before.
An all-new story based on Mary Shelley's classic, Frankenstein:
Through The Eyes Of The Monster sends the player on a quest
to unravel the mysteries of his existence and unlock the secrets
hidden deep within Dr. Frankenstein's castle. Character interaction
combines with detailed puzzle-solving to create an emotionally
driven experience. The detailed, complex puzzles and "physical
mysteries" challenge the player in unique ways.
"Similar interactive adventure games have relied on puzzle-based
challenges which are often based on sheer luck," explains
Ken Allen, producer of the title. "The challenges faced
in Frankenstein are mainly based on gaining knowledge within
the context of the game and require the player's mastery of the
environment. All skill levels -- from novice to the most avid
gamer -- will find this an exceptional experience."
Developed by Amazing Media, Frankenstein: Through The Eyes
Of The Monster is set in Dr. Frankenstein's enormous castle,
complete with catacombs and secret passageways. The stunning state-of-the-art
graphics, seamless live-action video, digitized voices and effects
bring this horrific tale to life. Chilling plot twists, changing
dialog and multiple plot endings will leave each player with a
different experience each time.
"Frankenstein is a very thought-provoking game. It's something
that you'll play for hours and then ruminate on what you've experienced
and what you've done. This will definitely affect the next
time you sit down to play the game," remarks Ken Allen.
Frankenstein: Through The Eyes Of The Monster was produced
by Interplay's Ken Allen in conjunction with the producers at
Amazing Media. Ken Allen's other production credits at Interplay
include STAR TREK(TM): Judgment Rites CD-ROM Limited Collector's
Edition and Interplay's Classic Collection. Mr. Allen
began his career in the interactive multimedia business as a composer
and sound effects editor for Sierra On-Line.
