Independent developer Mad Head Games today announced that Adam Wolfe, its new IP in the Hidden Object Puzzle Adventure genre, will launch its first two episodes “The Ancient Flame” and “The Devil You Know” on October 6th for iOS via the App Store and for PC and Mac via Steam on October 7th. Supernatural investigator Adam Wolfe deals with the shadows of his past while solving mysterious cases in the seedy underbelly of San Francisco in this Neo-noir adventure game that offers unique puzzles, a gripping story, incredible hand-drawn art, action set-pieces and a cinematic quality to the Hidden Object Puzzle Adventure genre.
“Adam Wolfe is a hidden object adventure unlike no other – it aims to redefine the genre and broaden the perception of what a HOPA game can be”, says Nenad Tomic, CEO of Mad Head Games. “In establishing this new IP, we have taken everything we learned from our previous explorations in the genre and injected it with a huge shot of adrenaline, action set-pieces and dark mystery. With Adam Wolfe we have created something that fans of the HOPA genre and hardcore gamers will find engrossing!”
Haunted by the disappearance of his sister, Adam struggles with his own demons as he investigates occult crimes, supernatural occurrences and the horrific reality of San Francisco crime syndicates. As players solve the mysteries before them, they slowly unravel a conspiracy that could lead Adam to his missing sibling, but simultaneously drag him down into the dark abyss of the city, forever. Use your wits, your detective instincts and, when all else fails, your six-shooter in this psychological thriller packed with challenging gameplay. Secret societies, unnatural afflictions and ancient covenants await in Adam Wolfe’s pulse pounding four episodes. The game is a new IP and the first self-published title from Mad Head Games, a multi-award-winning studio, that aims to redefine the HOPA genre into a cinematic, action-packed thrill ride that will keep you at the edge of your seat. The game features an English voiceover and is fully localized in English, French, German, Russian, simplified Chinese and Serbian.
