Next Stop…The Twilight Zone
LOS ANGELES, CA (June 2, 2011) – Leading casual game developer and publisher Legacy Interactive® announced today that they have signed a licensing agreement with CBS Consumer Products to create a video game based on the iconic science fiction TV series Twilight Zone.
The videogame, slated to launch in Q1-2012 on the PC and Mac, will be the latest addition to Legacy’s popular “Hollywood Hits” game series that includes Murder, She Wrote, House, M.D., Ghost Whisperer, Criminal Minds and Psych.
“Legacy Interactive is thrilled to be collaborating with CBS Consumer Products and developer Spark Plug Games on this amazing franchise,” said Ariella Lehrer, President and CEO of Legacy Interactive. “Who doesn’t remember episodes like ‘Time Enough at Last’ or ‘Nightmare at 20,000 Feet?’ Beloved by baby boomers worldwide, Legacy hopes to bring the same chilling intelligence, social relevance, and supernatural themes to our Twilight Zone video game.”
In this original story, gamers will take on the role of a struggling actor who finds himself trapped as a recurring character in multiple episodes of a TV show, from which he can’t escape before uncovering his role in each storyline. Players will encounter adventure style quests in which they set in motion key events through their actions within the game. In addition, as they find bits of the script in hidden object scenes across all the episodes, they learn more about the bizarre circumstances of their never-ending acting gig.
The Twilight Zone game will be available on Legacy Games for PC/Mac download at http://www.legacygames.com and at top retailers nationwide. Twilight Zone is licensed through CBS Consumer Products.
