LARKSPUR, CA. – August 10, 2012 - Deep Silver today published music from the soundtrack of Secret Files 3. Three pieces of music were selected from different locations – a church at the end of the world, Nina's bedroom, and the excavation site at Potbelly Hill in Turkey.
The pieces were written by composer Thorsten Engel. His soundtrack for Lost Horizon, the previous adventure from the Secret Files creators at Animation Arts, was nominated in the Best Soundtrack category at the German Game Developer Awards 2010. "Through his music, Thorsten gives each Secret Files location from Florence to Alcatraz its own particular atmosphere. We are therefore very glad to have him back on board for Secret Files 3," said Marco Zeugner, Project Manager at Animation Arts.
The compositions are available to listen to on the official website www.secretfiles3.deepsilver.com. Secret Files 3 will be released exclusively for the PC on August 31, 2012.
About Secret Files 3
The classic point & click adventure Secret Files 3 from developer Animation Arts features a movie-quality storyline and a great variety of locations, among other things. The new game follows the tradition of its popular predecessors Secret Files: Tunguska and Secret Files 2, combining a gripping story with entertaining gameplay, logical puzzles and gorgeous graphics. This third installment is supported by an experienced team of authors from NEOS Film, who have already successfully worked on TV and movie productions and are now called upon to help develop the plot, drama, and progress of the characters. The Bavarian FilmFernsehFonds sponsored this cooperation as part of its games support program.
As before, Secret Files 3 will offer adventure gamers clever, but never unfair, puzzles as well as new locations – all wrapped in a thrilling story.
"Following the success of the first two Secret Files games and the equally popular Lost Horizon, we are very pleased that, together with Koch Media, we now get to realize Secret Files 3 as well," says Marco Zeugner, CEO at Animation Arts. "Supported by a trio of professional authors, we are going to send Nina and Max off on a truly exciting adventure."
The NEOS Film team has been involved in the development of storylines for computer games for about two years. "Developing storylines for movies or TV is quite different from doing the same for games. We all really enjoy a challenge like our creative input for this continuation of the Secret Files series. After all, we are not only movie lovers, but enthusiastic gamers as well," says Andreas Atzwanger, CEO at NEOS Film.
Secret Files 3 is scheduled to be released for PC on August 31, 2012.
