Mamba Games' Odyssia is a new adventure gaming brand aimed towards adventure game lovers on PC and console, specializing in high quality products sourced from developers globally with 16 new products released by the end of 2010.

Continuing the growth of Odyssia in September 2009, a new designated digital download portal will be available to consumers wanting the very best of adventure games with an immense sense of value for money. Working with publishers around the world to promote their adventure games the website will give the community and one stop shop for the very best of Adventure games either via digital download or full boxed versions.

Jason Codd of Mamba Games explains why Mamba feel there is a market for an Adventure specific brand and his hopes for the first two releases in the series, ”We have researched the market thoroughly and the demand for new and exciting adventure products is really high so the “ODYSSIA” brand will breathe new IP and new products into the market place which has been stale for a long time. We are carefully selecting quality adventure products to be within the “Odyssia” brand and we are really excited about the launch. The feedback we have from retail has been terrific and with the digital download portal been released in September we are confident that the brand will become and instant success.”

The first two releases under the Odyssia label will be Outcry and The Void – both developed by Bit Composer who were part of the developing team for last year's S.T.A.L.K.E.R.

Outcry (Sept. 25, 2009, PC, £19.99) is an adventure game based amongst breath taking environments created in photorealistic detail – set to a haunting soundtrack and effects the scene is set to discover the boundaries between dreams and reality, as the player delves deep into their subconscious to confront their innermost fears.

The second of the two releases is The Void (Sept. 25, 2009, PC, £19.99), set in the Void a place where mortal’s souls go before death – a middle earth of life and death. The player has a chance to survive the Void sparing their soul and even their life- the tool they have to do this is The Colour. The Colour is the only food for the dying souls in The Void, every soul feeds off it and every soul is desperately struggling for every drop they can find, as this is the only means to save their souls and return to mortal life. The player needs to use their wit and fast thinking to determine the colours needed to escape the realms of The Void.
