Daedalic and Chromatrix have today announced that puzzle versions of two of Daedalic’s most well known franchises, Deponia and Edna & Harvey, will make their way onto iPads by the end of the month.
Deponia – The Puzzle and Edna & Harvey – The Puzzle will each provide players with 96 puzzles of background themes from the series, with three different single-player modes available. In the Search & Find mode, players will need to find the right puzzle piece as quickly as possible in order to earn as many points as possible, whilst a two-player mode will challenge friends to compete at speedy puzzle solving. The game is also set to have drag & drop modes, rotating puzzles, and a variety of difficulty levels.
Deponia – The Puzzle and Edna & Harvey – The Puzzle are both set to release for iPad on May 28.
The point and click adventure genre has seen somewhat of a resurgence over these past few years thanks in part to devices like the iPad. While classics like Monkey Island and Sam & Max get updated for modern audiences, all new experiences are being created as well. Case in point, Daedalic Entertainment’s Edna & Harvey: The Breakout, the acclaimed 2008 underground adventure game and winner of the 2009 Red Dot Design Award, is arriving on the iPad in August 2012.
When young Edna wakes up in an insane asylum locked up and with no memory, obviously she suspects that something is wrong. With the exception of her talking stuffed bunny Harvey, everyone mistakenly believes that she’s crazy. Her only choice is to escape. Edna’s quest will have players interacting with fellow patients, staying one step ahead of the asylum’s Dr. Marcel and soaking in the bizarre, twisted atmosphere throughout the 20 hours of adventure goodness.
There’s no exact date or price yet for Edna & Harvey: The Breakout but look for it on the App Store sometime this August.
