    "Атлантида 3" - совместное издание фирмы "1С" и компании Nival Interactive популярного квеста от французской компании Cryo Interactive.

    Недалекое будущее, 2020 год. Очаровательная девушка медленно приходит в себя под звездным небом пустыни Ахаггар. Где ее джип? Почему ее голова перебинтована? Кто этот странный человек, подбрасывающий ветки в костер и, судя по всему, спасший ее от неведомой опасности? Она помнит только как мчалась сквозь пустыню к своей мечте: загадочному египетскому объекту, до которого еще не успели добраться ее коллеги-археологи.

    Таинственный абориген вовсе не собирается оставлять ее одну в пустыне. Тем лучше: собираясь в путь, искатели приключений еще не знают, что ввязываются в увлекательные и опасные поиски цивилизации, легенда о которой пережила века, - поиски пропавшей Атлантиды...

    Особенности игры

    • Третья часть приключенческого хита об Атлантиде;
    • Прообразом героини послужила известная актриса Чиара Мастроянни, дочь Марчелло Мастроянни и Катрин Денев. А главный негодяй как две капли воды похож на Джона Малковича;
    • От перемещений во времени и пространстве захватывает дух: из благоухающих садов "Тысячи и одной ночи" вы попадаете в пустыню, с ледяных равнин палеолита - в загадочный мир египетской Книги мертвых;
    • 45 реалистичных персонажей;
    • Потрясающая музыка;
    • Синхронизация движений губ в диалогах;

Press Release:

    Beyond Atlantis II -- The Sequel to DreamCatcher's Top-Selling PC Adventure Game - Beyond Atlantis

    Toronto, Ontario (October 29, 2001) - DreamCatcher, a fast-growing publisher of PC and console software entertainment, today shipped their anticipated sequel--Beyond Atlantis II. The mysteries of Atlantis have spanned the centuries, with legend after legend, and DreamCatcher's new PC adventure follows in the same tradition. Like its predecessor, the graphics in the awe-inspiring journey take adventurers on a completely immersive and exotic voyage.

    In this new adventure, players follow a young female Egyptologist, who's animated form is based on the French beauty Chiara Mastroianni (daughter of Catherine Deneuve). This beautiful archaeologist is hoping to uncover the mysteries of this renowned lost world, and her journey takes her from the palaces of the Thousand and One Nights to the Hoggar desert, from the Egyptian Book of the Dead to the icy plains of the Palaeolithic. Do the former Atlantians still exist? What is this extraordinary power that would change the destiny of humanity forever? How many challenges must be faced before the truth is finally revealed? It is the player's job to find the answers to these questions.

    Storyline
    It's 2020. The Hoggar desert… A magnificent star-studded sky… A campfire crackles. The Tuareg puts a twig on the fire. The dromedary stands close by. The sleeping heroine, with her head bandaged, slowly awakes. She learns that her 4x4 has broken down, and that she is being taken care of by the handsome Tuareg.

    Meet the heroine of Beyond Atlantis II, a young Egyptologist who is searching for a metropolis built, according to her information, by the Ancient Egyptians and located near a well not far from here. Our protagonist is interested in the existence of this city for two reasons: It has not yet been "discovered" and it is a long way from Egypt, which makes it somewhat mysterious. As for her companion, Tuareg, he is a loner, a man who lost his family some years ago and decided to turn his back on the modern world and live as his ancestors did. Refusing to leave our heroine alone in the desert, Tuareg decides to go with her. The young Egyptologist has no idea that soon she will plunge into the most mysterious and dangerous adventures of all: the quest for Atlantis.
