'Venus Redemption' Announced

by Rainier on May 30, 2007 @ 3:37 a.m. PDT

nDreams Ltd, founded by SCi/Eidos' former creative director Patrick O’Luanaigh, announces Venus Redemption, an episodic casual game created for 30+ female gamers, with a rich plot written by a noted novelist, featuring a powerful storyline, deep characters, emotion-based interactive conversations and exciting adventure gameplay.

Pride and Prejudice. Titanic. Grey’s Anatomy. Whether it's a best-selling novel, a Hollywood movie or a TV series, most forms of entertainment understand the importance of powerful storylines and strong well-written characters when appealing to women. However, for the millions of women who play and enjoy "casual games", a rapidly growing sector of the video game market, storyline has been the one element that has been virtually ignored until now.

Venus Redemption is a unique episodic casual game created for 30+ female gamers, with a rich plot written by a noted novelist. Unlike other casual games, it features powerful storylines, deep characters, emotion-based interactive conversations and exciting adventure gameplay. However, like traditional casual games, it’s extremely easy to play, requiring only the ability to move and left-click a mouse, and it's playable in short bursts if you don’t have much time.

Venus Redemption is written by award-winning author Kate Pullinger, who co-wrote the book, “The Piano” with director Jane Campion, and is one of the leading pioneers of interactive fiction. Additional storyline has been written by BAFTA nominated writer, Gordon Rennie, whilst a unique ambient-orchestral musical score has been composed by veteran musician Tim Wright, best known for his work on the Wipeout game series.

Venus Redemption focuses equally on the U.S and European markets, highlighting the multi-cultural design behind the game, In fact, the recent two-day voice recording session at the world-famous Air Studios Lyndhurst saw an equal mix of American and European voice artists, and puts Venus Redemption on track to have the most advanced audio of any casual game.

Patrick O’Luanaigh, CEO of nDreams said, “We can’t wait to present Venus Redemption to the world. After many months of development and exhaustive gameplay focus testing, we believe that it will prove a breath of fresh air for the casual game sector, and in particular for female casual gamers. With the technology behind Venus Redemption, we can now rapidly develop immersive and visually impressive story-based casual games that will run on almost any PC.”
