Adventure gamers are experienced thieves, but you'll need to be at your burgling best in indie developer Spider Key Games' newly-released Spellbind.
Spellbind casts players in the role of 16-year-old Luppe, the self-proclaimed "king of thieves" and the "head of the biggest gang of street urchins in the town of Riathon". Your reputation is on the line, however, when the leader of a rival gang named Ricko publicly challenges you to "enter the cellar of Lord Amatar’s house and steal his oldest and most expensive bottle of wine." This won't be an easy challenge, as the very name of Lord Amatar is feared by all, and surely such a prized possession will be well protected.
This first-person casual puzzler uses the familiar slideshow-style presentation in taking players into and under Lord Amatar's "big old house". Along the way, you will need to solve "up to 12 different riddles and many other puzzles" throughout the game's expected 3-hour play time.
Interested puzzle lovers need not wait, as Spellbind is already available for PC, Mac, and Linux. You can find the complete list of purchase links at the game's official website.
