The name Hans Christian Andersen is instantly recognizable as the author of many classic fairy tales. But in HANS CHRISTIAN ANDERSEN: The Ugly Prince Duckling, the 19th century Danish writer is the star of his very own PC adventure.
Although its product page first appeared on The Adventure Company's website some time ago, the Canadian publisher has at last announced officially that the game is coming to North America on March 13th.
In The Ugly Prince Duckling, players control a 14-year old Andersen on the streets of Copenhagen in the early 1800s. An aspiring artist in search of success, Andersen soon finds himself on a quest to rescue the Princess and save the kingdom from the evil Master of Darkness and his army of Trolls. Although based primarily on the author's own life, the game will include many elements and characters from Andersen's stories along the way.
