The catacombs of Balthasar Castle, steeped in mystery, will become a great adventure for five animal friends. Defeat every labyrinth and solve every puzzle together – this is the premise of the first casual game from Mack Media. “Mystery Maze of Balthasar Castle” will be released on the 40th birthday of Europa-Park: 12 July 2015.
In the puzzle adventure “Mystery Maze of Balthasar Castle”, players must correctly combine the various skills of the different characters in order to move through the levels. After a jam-packed day at the theme park, the characters (Euromaus, Euromausi, Böckli, Louis and Eurofant) want to take a break in the historical Balthasar Castle. They accidentally step on a trap door and plunge into the forgotten dungeons of the sacred old castle. Only together can they get out of the mysterious labyrinth and defeat the evil Nachtkrapp night raven.
Germany’s largest theme park is setting new benchmarks with this strategic adventure game. It is the first time Mack Media has developed one of its own games, and it is targeting all age groups. After the successful implementation of the 4D films “The Secret of Balthasar Castle” and “The Time Carousel”, the casual game is the next big shot in the media offerings of the world’s largest seasonal theme park.
Michael Mack, CEO of Mack Media, is proud of the first self-produced game: “It has been my dream for a long time to bring our own game onto the market. The result is outstanding. We are certain that this will mean Europa-Park also finds its way into the homes of our visitors.”
The game has been developed by Caipirinha Games, which has already had seven titles in the top ten of the Media Control Charts since it was founded in 2003. The distribution partner for the sale of the game outside of Europa-Park is the renowned company Koch Media, the largest independent publisher of computer games in Europe. Libredia® will distribute the game online via its worldwide network of download portals.
“Mystery Maze of Balthasar Castle” will launch this Summer on PC, Mac, iOS, Android and Windows Phone on the 12th of July.
Europa-Park will be open the summer season 2015 from 28 March to 8 November daily, from 09:00 to 18:00 (longer opening hours during the peak season). Info hotline: +49 07822/ 77 66 88. More information at www.europapark.de
