A visit to Leonardo da Vinci’s workshop
Leonardo da Vinci was a Universal Genius. His paintings are on display in the most renowned galleries world-wide, his research in the field of anatomy provided new insights into the human body back in his day, and his designs for buildings, machines and vehicles were far ahead of the state of the art at the time. However, da Vinci is not only known for his many works, but also for his visions of the future. He not only foresaw the invention of the automobile, but also predicted a somber future. Could it be that in the course of his research, da Vinci had come across a secret regarding the very existence of humanity?
Secret Files 3 leads young adventurer Nina Kalenkow all the way to Florence, Italy, in the times of the Renaissance. In Leonardo da Vinci’s workshop she hopes to find the solution to the mystery surrounding the disappearance of Max, her fiancé, and the enigmatic guardians. What was it that the Master knew and modern science never found out to this day?
In the tradition of the earlier games in the series, Secret Files 3 also mixes in real events and historical personalities with a gripping mystery story. Her search for answers not only leads Nina Kalenkow to various locations around the world, but also through the mists of time. In her dreams, she visits not only Florence during the Renaissance, but also, for example, ancient Alexandria.
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.
Secret Files 3 is scheduled to be released for PC on August 31, 2012.
