Lock's Quest Screenshots



AGOURA HILLS, Calif. – April 2, 2008 – THQ Inc. (NASDAQ: THQI) today announced that Lock’s Quest™, a new original adventure title, is currently in development exclusively for Nintendo DS™. Lock’s Quest is the only game where players create a virtual world block-by-block to defend their homeland against invading enemies. With the innovative use of the Nintendo DS stylus in Lock’s Quest, players will be able to immerse themselves into the building and creating process. The game is being developed by 5th Cell, the creators of Drawn to Life™, which was one of the top selling original properties developed for Nintendo DS in 2007.

In Lock’s Quest, players will assume the role of young hero Lock as he defends his homeland from the imminent attack of robotic invaders. As an Archineer—part architect, part engineer—Lock uses his skills to build new structures around the sacred Source Artifacts with the ultimate goal of protecting them from infiltrators. Players can utilize different materials such as stone, metal, or wood to create and design defense towers in the battle field. There are also quirky weapons such as quicksand traps and glue cannons that the player can use to attack enemies. Lock’s Quest combines the action/adventure and life simulation genres in a fast-paced broadly appealing game consisting of successive waves of building and battling. Elements of strategy and puzzle-solving are also incorporated to reward more sophisticated players. Players will be able to battle with friends through multi-card play or Wi-Fi.

Lock’s Quest is expected to be available this fall. For more information on this game, as well as additional THQ titles, please visit www.playthq.com.
