GameTap Celebrates “Adventure Week” with the Addition of Phoenix Licensing and a Cyan Classic

This week, GameTap celebrates the Adventure genre by rolling out six new-to-the-network adventure titles, including the network’s first title from Phoenix Licensing and the first PC version of a classic Mac game from Cyan. In addition, we are premiering multiplayer capabilities with four others games!

Among the highlights is “The Last Express,” Phoenix Licensing’s debut game on GameTap. When The Last Express was originally released, it received Editor’s Choice awards from Computer Gaming World, PC Gamer, and dozens of gaming websites, as well as being awarded the “Best New Adventure and Role Playing Game” by Games Magazine. Created by Jordan Mechner, the mastermind behind the incredibly popular “Prince of Persia” series, “The Last Express” is an indelible adventure experience.

While Cyan is best known for its “Myst” franchise - with “Myst Online: Uru Live” debuting on GameTap this holiday season and “Myst,” “Riven: The Sequel to Myst,” and “Myst III: Exile” currently available in the network – one of their past game gems is “Spelunx and the Caves of Mr. Seudo.” This is an educational game cleverly disguised as a cave exploration adventure. Previously only available for the Mac, it is now making its PC debut.

New Games:

· “The Last Express” - Phoenix Licensing

· “Spelunx and the Caves of Mr. Seudo” - Cyan

· “Beyond Atlantis” - DreamCatcher Europe SA

· “Crystal Key 2: The Far Realm” - DreamCatcher Europe SA
