The Adventure Company has just announced Journey To The Center Of The Moon from developer Kheops Studio. The game will debut at the Electronic Entertainment Expo later this week.
Journey To The Center Of The Moon is loosely based on Jules Verne's novel From The Earth To The Moon. Michel Ardan, a scientist that lands on the moon in a space capsule, must find a way to get back to Earth. On his journey to find that way, he discovers the Selenites, a strange, intelligent, and mysterious race of beings living beneath the moon's surface. As he makes his way, he is faced with questions about the Selenites, their origins, and their nature.
A key feature in Journey To The Center Of The Moon is a merit based system called 'Intelligence Management'. This system tracks the player's actions and puzzle solving progress through the game, and awards the player points, which in turn raises his/her score and earns or loses respect with the Selenites.
No release date has yet been set for Journey To The Center Of The Moon.
