Signed by RTL Enterprises, German developer Silver Style, known for The Fall: Last Days of Gaia, announced that the German edition of its upcoming adventure game Simon the Sorcerer 4 has gone gold.

14 years after the original, the fourth title in the franchise finally seem to be taking shape. The previous title, Simon 3D by Vivendi, was heavily criticized for having outdated graphics, mainly due to the project being shelved for a few years, so Silver Style opted to develop its own state of the art 3D engine.

Lead Designer Carsten Strehse said that the new title will mainly focus around logical and challenging puzzles, with barely any action parts, the controls will be similar to other point & click adventures like the more recent The Westerner and Ankh.

Simon The Sorcerer 4 is scheduled for release in Germany February 23, 2007.
