Simon the Sorcerer: Who'd Even Want Contact?! Screenshots



TGC continues the successful adventure series and sends the famous sorcerer´s apprentice to a fascinating alternative world.

Berlin/Leipzig, 20th August 2008: At this year´s Games Convention, TGC – The Games Company surprises adventure fans with a thrilling announcement: The Berlin-based publisher is going to continue the famous adventure series featuring Simon, the charismatic sorcerer´s apprentice. Under the working title Simon the Sorcerer 5 TGC´s in-house development unit is currently working at the fifth sequel of the series, which -with far more than 700,000 sold units – is one of the most successful adventure brands of all times and highly appreciated all over the world.

Simon the Sorcerer 5 sends adventurers to a futuristic game world, in which they experience a turbulent backward journey through history in order to help Simon to recover his memory. Adventure fans will meet again many old acquaintances from earlier Simon the Sorcerer games and encounter fantastic vehicles like steam-powered space ships in the imaginative alternative universe. The innovative puzzle design demands a new approach to solving the missions even from experienced adventurers. The ambitious point & click adventure is rounded off by its crazy sense of humor and a dense story full of twists and turns.

Markus Malti, CEO at TGC, sees enormous potential in the new game: “Within the community the brand Simon the Sorcerer enjoys a similarly high reputation as the good old Lucas Arts adventures. With Simon the Sorcerer 5 we do not only want to fulfill but exceed the expectations of the genre fans. We will achieve this with innovative puzzle elements and a unique, fresh game world.”
