Koch Media's games label Deep Silver is joining forces with Daedalic Entertainment to publish PC adventure title The Whispered World in 18 European territories.
The game will release in German-speaking territories at the end of May, with other countries including the UK, France, Italy, Spain and Portugal to follow later in the year.
Here's Koch's official blurb on the game:
The beautiful adventure game The Whispered World whisks the player away to a fascinating fantasy world. Sadwick is a young clown but often far from cheerful. One night, a strange blue creature speaks to him in a dream, and sends him on an adventurous journey. Many dangers await Sadwick, for the world he knows is doomed to crumble and fall.
In classic point & click tradition, gamers steer Sadwick and his companion Spot through the game. Little Spot never leaves Sadwick's side and is integral to solving many puzzles. He can take on many different forms throughout the game, which the player can pick and choose at will, once they have been learned.
Hand-painted backgrounds filled with animated details and lovingly crafted characters in the style of classic animated movies like Spirited Away" bring the story to life. The Whispered World mixes fairy-tale elements with melancholic tones to create a tale of epic proportions.
