(KungÃ¤lv, Sweden) – October 21, 2004: Games publisher Iridon Interactive has launched a website for Billy Blade and the Temple of TimeTM, giving details of how brave adventurers can assist Billy in freeing his friend and sidekick, Kong the Monkey, who is imprisoned in the mythical Time Crystal.
During a recent expedition to the legendary Temple of Time, Kong was trapped inside the crystal, and Billy needs help to solve the riddle of the Temple and free his friend. The website launched today contains information on the quest, along with surveillance photos showing previous attempts to rescue Kong.
"I've put together a movie trailer showing off some of what we'll be up against," said Billy Blade. "I've also made some computer wallpapers for people to download. By putting them on your desktop, you will be reminded of Kong's plight and our quest to save him!"
"The trailer Billy's put together really shows off what adventurers can expect in their journey to the Temple of Time," continues Bjorn Larsson, CEO of Iridon. "By making it available through the new website we've set up for Billy Blade and the Temple of Time, potential adventurers can really get an idea of what to expect."
The expedition to free Kong the Monkey from the mysterious Crystal of Time launches this winter, and Adventurers with a PC wanting to help Billy will be able to join the hunt then. Keep an eye on the official website at www.billyblade.com for the latest news!
