Become Frankenstein’s Creature in ARTE’s Latest Adventure Game, Out Now on Windows PC and Mac
New Narrative Adventure Set in Breathtaking Watercolor World Lets Players Discover a Story of Darkness and Light and Goes Back to the Roots of the Legendary Tale
Paris – October 31, 2019 — Publisher and co-producer ARTE alongside indie game studio La Belle Games have today launched their story-driven adventure game The Wanderer: Frankenstein’s Creature on Steam for Windows PC and Mac. The title is coming to mobile platforms in November and ARTE is bringing the adventure to the Nintendo Switch™ in Q1 2020.
The Wanderer: Frankenstein’s Creature goes back to the roots of Mary Shelley’s legendary novel, Frankenstein, and invites players to discover a being quite different from the pop culture icon: Starring a creature born neither good nor evil, traveling through Europe in a search to find its origins and learn about humanity. This journey is emotional and challenging for both the creature and the player as beauty and kindness are often followed by darkness, fear and hate.
Depending on the player’s decision, the landscape and the soundtrack evolve throughout the game. The handcrafted watercolor environments, inspired by the Romantic era, change from light and colorful to dark and moody, underlining the emotional atmosphere of the game.
“We spent three years working on the game and creating the watercolor art that gives The Wanderer: Frankenstein’s Creature its unique look and feel,” says Cédric Bache, Producer at La Belle Games, a small indie studio based in Paris. “We feel very passionate about the emotions communicated and created through the visual design of the game and hope the players will enjoy them as much as we do.”
Players can now experience The Wanderer: Frankenstein’s Creature on Steam for $ 15.99 / € 14.99/ £ 12.99 with a 10% launch week discount. The game is available in English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish languages. To learn more about the game, please visit the official website and follow the game on Twitter.
