Montreal, Quebec, Canada – August 9, 2012 – Meridian4 (@Meridian4) today announced that they are bringing two brand new titles to North America as part of their publishing agreement with Headup Games: role-playing strategy game, Holy Avatar vs. Maidens of the Dead and point-and-click adventure, The Inner World. Both titles will be making their debut at Gamescom next week at the Headup Games booth, located in Hall 4.1, Booth C-061.
· Holy Avatar vs. Maidens of the Dead (PC): A spin-off from the Grotesque Tactics franchise, this role-playing strategy game follows Holy Avatar, who has decided to grab some R&R with his Guild of Maidens on a tropical island he has purchased. Upon arrival, a gruesome discovery is made – a slew of brutally murdered and horribly mutilated maidens. Holy Avatar must investigate what happened on the island, which brings a myriad of new adventures, dangers and the occasional zombie threat.
· The Inner World (PC, Mac, iOS): is a wonderfully twisted point-and-click adventure game that takes place in Asposia, a land that defies all laws of physics by existing in an enormous hollow space. Asposia is surrounded by rich soil and ventilated solely through three large wind fountains. When the fountains start running dry, it is up to cheerful yet naïve resident, Robert, to solve the mystery behind the wind’s disappearance.
“We are excited to continue our partnership with Headup Games to bring both The Inner World and Holy Avatar vs. Maidens of the Dead to North America, and look forward to debuting both titles at Gamescom next week,” said Steve Milburn, Marketing Director at Meridian4. “Both games put a humorous spin on their respective genres and deliver an entertaining, challenging gaming experience that players can appreciate.”
