Duesseldorf/Germany, January 2015
First announced in January 2014, the gripping casual adventure Mystery of Neuschwanstein is now close to its release: On February 18th 2015 the engaging puzzle game created by the Munich based developer team Chimera Entertainment will be published simultaneously for PC, Android™ smartphones and tablets as well as iPhone® and iPad® by German publisher astragon Software.
A world famous castle, the mysterious unsolved death of a romantic king and anonymous hints pointing to a murky network of conspiracies – what more does a journalist need to guarantee an exciting story – maybe even with Pulitzer potential?
That is why Sarah Hamilton, investigative writer for the magazine “Facts & Fancy”, does not hesitate one second, when she receives evidence that there is something strange going on at the famous Neuschwanstein Castle, popular tourist attraction and last home of the doomed fairy tale king Ludwig II of Bavaria. Follow Sarah and her newfound acquaintance Professor Adler on an exciting puzzle-adventure game which will take the protagonists on a dangerous quest for the truth behind one of Germany’s most high-profile cold cases.
Since the mysterious death of the king in 1886 by drowning in the shallows of Lake Starnberg along with his doctor Bernhard von Gudden, who had conveniently declared the king insane at the urging of the Bavarian government, various rumors have been circulating around Ludwig’s last days: Was his death a suicide as the official sources claim? Or murder? And who profited really from his Majes-ty’s untimely demise?
Countless challenging puzzles, brain teasers and hidden object scenes await the virtual detective on his search for the true facts behind the 128 year old crime that will lead him through beautiful hand-drawn locations within the famous castle and its breathtaking surroundings.
