The secret files have been opened once more: Released today, Secret Files 3 is the third installment of the successful German point & click adventure series for the PC. Adventuress Nina is looking forward to her wedding with her fiancé Max Gruber when a SWAT team suddenly bursts into their apartment and kidnaps her intended.

About Secret Files 3
The classic point & click adventure Secret Files 3 from developer Animation Arts features a movie-quality storyline and a great variety of locations, among other things. The new game follows the tradition of its popular predecessors Secret Files: Tunguska and Secret Files 2, combining a gripping story with entertaining gameplay, logical puzzles and gorgeous graphics. This third installment is supported by an experienced team of authors from NEOS Film, who have already successfully worked on TV and movie productions and are now called upon to help develop the plot, drama, and progress of the characters. The Bavarian FilmFernsehFonds sponsored this cooperation as part of its games support program.
“As before, Secret Files 3 will offer adventure gamers clever, but never unfair, puzzles as well as new locations – all wrapped in a thrilling story.
“Following the success of the first two Secret Files games and the equally popular Lost Horizon, we are very pleased that, together with Koch Media, we now get to realize Secret Files 3 as well,” says Marco Zeugner, CEO at Animation Arts. “Supported by a trio of professional authors, we are going to send Nina and Max off on a truly exciting adventure.”
The NEOS Film team has been involved in the development of storylines for computer games for about two years. “Developing storylines for movies or TV is quite different from doing the same for games. We all really enjoy a challenge like our creative input for this continuation of the Secret Files series. After all, we are not only movie lovers, but enthusiastic gamers as well,” says Andreas Atzwanger, CEO at NEOS Film.
