Darmstadt, 17 August 2005: With the world premiere of the horror-action-adventure "Black Buccaneer" 10TACLE STUDIOS take you to the world of pirates and dark voodoo powers on the Games Convention in Germany. Already in the spring of 2006 the multi platform-title (PC, PS2, Xbox) of the French development team Widescreen Games will bring hot action as well as cold shivers to the players.
The story is set in the Caribbean of the sixteenth century. The young sailor Francis Blade is caught in a strong storm on his way to the new world which leaves him shipwrecked on the coast of an island. On the beach he finds a mysterious skull-amulet which grants him magic powers of the terrifying Black Buccaneer. With the help of these powers he finally finds out about a legendary pirate treasure! This exciting adventure leads the player through nine different worlds on 26 challenging levels where there are tricky mysteries and deathly traps. Various different ways to solve the adventure and two playable characters make this game great fun for a long time. The real-time 3D graphics create a very special atmosphere thanks to light and shadow effects and turn the idyllic palm beaches of the Caribbean into the most horrific voodoo nightmare.
