CLASSIC ADVENTURE GAMING IS BACK Himalaya Studios Ships Classic Style Adventure Game for the PC
September 6, 2006--Remember an era when classics like King’s Quest, Leisure Suit Larry, and Monkey Island reigned supreme? Remember a time when games had an enticing storyline and challenging puzzles? A few years ago, journalists proclaimed the adventure gaming genre was dead, but that didn’t last for long!
The fan-bois (and girl) responsible for creating remakes of Sierra’s beloved King’s Quest I and King’s Quest II, have just released their first original classic-style adventure game for the PC, Al Emmo and the Lost Dutchman’s Mine.
Britney Brimhall, Chairman & CEO of Himalaya Studios comments, “after spending several years in development, making certain to get all the details JUST right, we are SO excited to finally release the game to adventure game lovers around the world!” Brimhall also remarks, “fans of the adventure genre have been neglected for far too long, and we hope with the release of Al Emmo, that gamers will once again feel the immense nostalgic feeling of loading a classic for the first time.”
