    Weston, CT – May 23, 2007 - Got Game Entertainment LLC today announced that "Scratches: Director’s Cut", an expanded "one-year anniversary" edition of the successful mystery-adventure game for the PC has shipped to retail across North America. This extended edition includes an exciting new chapter in the story ("The Last Visit"), an alternate original ending, new clues to understanding the story, new, revealing thoughts from the main character in "Michael Diary", higher supported resolution, and a new default control method with fixed mouse, FPS-like movement. "Scratches: Director’s Cut" makes its retail debut at $19.99 (USD) and is rated "T" for Teen by the ESRB for Alcohol and Tobacco Reference/Blood/Mild Language/Mild Violence.

    In "Scratches: Director’s Cut", dark legends surround the old abandoned Blackwood Manor, secluded in the northern wastelands. For horror writer Michael Arthate, this cold, solitary atmosphere is fodder for his restless imagination. But Michael soon finds himself drawn into a mystery beyond even his wildest imagination. Players join Michael in this suspenseful adventure, exploring beautiful and chilling environments, prowling dark corners and solving puzzles leading to the solution to a tale begun with obsession and ending with madness and murder.

    "Scratches: Director’s Cut" features a careful combination of inventory-based and deductive-style puzzles, integrated with a riveting storyline, non-linear gameplay, intricately detailed graphics, and an entrancing soundtrack, immersing players in a haunting gothic atmosphere.

    "For those who believed there might be more to the Blackwood Manor story, ‘Scratches: Directors’ Cut’ reveals how very much more," said Got Game President Howard Horowitz.
