In an announcement that officially confirms a long-running rumour, The Adventure Company today revealed its plan to publish NIBIRU: Age of Secrets in North America.
Developed by the creators of The Black Mirror and released in various languages throughout Europe already, NIBIRU is an updated and improved version of Posel Bohu, or The Messenger of the Gods, which won Czech adventure game of the year for 1998.
A third-person, traditional point & click adventure, the game features 80 graphically-rich locations and over 35 non-player characters as it follows the exploits of a linguistics and archeology student named Martin Holan. What begins for Holan as a simple examination of a mysterious World War II tunnel quickly becomes what TAC describes as "a dangerous and thrilling mystery, where murder, deception, the deep dark secrets of the Nazis, and the demise of the Mayan civilization, have our hero reeling into the heart of an exhilarating adventure."
For more detailed information, you can read about the game in the Adventure Gamers preview.
NIBIRU: Age of Secrets is scheduled for a September 2005 release.
