Playlogic announces it has acquired RTL Enterprises' point-and-click adventure game Simon the Sorcerer 4: Chaos Happens, in which players take control of the witty sorcerer during his new quest in the Magic World.

“Simon the Sorcerer 4: Chaos Happens” is set some years after his last adventure in the magic World. During a fight over the TV remote with his younger brother, Simon is knocked unconscious. In the dream that follows he has a vision of Alix, his lady-friend from the Magic World. She tells him a “Simon” doppelganger is causing all kinds of trouble in her world. After Simon wakes up he doesn’t know what to make of it. Was it just a dream or is there more? He wastes no time at all and fires up his magic wardrobe to get to the bottom of it.

In “Simon the Sorcerer 4: Chaos Happens” players take control of the witty sorcerer during his new quest in the Magic World. In this point and click adventure the story unravels when Simon travels around and interacts with dozens of characters, solves puzzles and brings order to the chaos his double has caused.
