Got Game Announces Penumbra: Overture

Got Game Entertainment has announced this week its plans to publish Penumbra: Overture in North America in partnership with the game’s UK publishers, Lexicon Entertainment. Penumbra: Overture is a first-person horror/adventure game focusing on a gripping storyline, clever brain-teasing puzzles, and cutting-edge gameplay technology that will allow players to interact with the game environment like never before using natural mouse movements.

“The innovative technology developed by Frictional Games for ‘Penumbra: Overture’ makes this one of the most exciting and unique adventure games we’ve brought to market,” said Got Game President Howard Horowitz. “For those players who want to just slightly open a door and peek inside a room, this technology allows that – and who knows what may be peeking back!”

Penumbra: Overture is slated to hit North American retailers in March 2007 at a budget MSRP of $19.99.
