Symbol Quest (PC) Announced

by Rainier on Sept. 9, 2009 @ 7:52 a.m. PDT

Doubleday's Symbol Quest is a new online game in anticipation of the new novel from Dan Brown, The Lost Symbol. Through a series of clues and symbols, the user engages in a mysterious journey that will excite fans across the globe.

Through a series of clues and symbols, the user engages in a mysterious journey that will excite fans across the globe.  Dan Brown's The Lost Symbol, the eagerly awaited follow-up to his #1 international phenomenon, The Da Vinci Code, which was the bestselling hardcover adult novel of all time with 81 million copies in print worldwide, has an announced first print run of 5 million copies, the largest first print in Random House, Inc. history.

Symbol Quest takes the player through intriguing clues that appear with the choice of various floating symbols to be placed in a central dial in sequence. With each correct answer, the dial turns one notch until the player puts all the symbols correctly in order.  If symbols are chosen erroneously, the player’s quest will have failed and it is back to the beginning with a different sequence of symbols.  Exciting sound effects and archaic graphics add to the user experience as fans dissect the hints and symbols.

Since the announcement of the publication in April 2009, anticipation for the release of The Lost Symbol featuring Brown's unforgettable protagonist, Robert Langdon, has had fans clamoring for more information about the book.  To satisfy Dan Brown fans, Doubleday has launched a summer-long campaign of code-breaking and problem-solving hosted on Twitter and Facebook. Featuring an enigmatic array of codes, cryptic trivia, puzzles, secret history, maps, aphorisms, ciphers and arcane knowledge, daily posts will challenge, intrigue, educate and entertain.
