Adventure Company's got another Jules Verne-inspired graphical adventure that they've announced. This time it's a doozy - hopefully it'll be as good as the last one.

Toronto, May 16, 2005. The Adventure Company, a leading publisher of PC
adventure games, today announced it will publish Journey to the Center
of the Moon for Windows(r). A captivating graphic adventure based on
legendary author Jules Verne's From the Earth the Moon, this game will
debut at the 2005 Electronic Entertainment Expo.

In this not so distant past, the far side of the moon conjured up the
most fascinating theories. Even some of the world's greatest scientific
minds believed that our natural satellite had an atmosphere that could,
and did, support various life forms. Based on the premise of Verne's
novel, Journey to the Center of the Moon follows as a group of
scientists create a space capsule with the intent of landing on the
moon's surface. Where as in the novel, their mission fails, leaving them
floating high above the lunar surface, in this fascinating adventure,
they succeed!

As scientist Michel Ardan, players are able to wander the surface of the
moon in an unstable but breathable atmosphere and witness the explosion
of plant life at dawn. Players will explore fantastic locations
including the space capsule, the lunar surface, an ancient temple, and
other mysterious ruins. They will also encounter a subterranean
civilization inside the moon, as well as the Selenite City, the home of
an ancient but highly intelligent race, the Selenites.

With each step of the journey, questions arise as to the fate of the
Selenite people: Did they deteriorate, like so many of the statues they
left behind? Did they leave the surface to seek refuge in the center of
the moon? Once players answer these questions, they may find their way
to back to earth with news of their fantastic discoveries.

The game features a variety of ingenious puzzles and a unique, built in
Intelligence Management system. Actions made by the player throughout
the game, as well as the puzzles they solve, are awarded points, raising
their score and earning the respect of the Selenites. Along the journey,
players will interact with a huge cast of mysterious characters and

Journey to the Center of the Moon is developed by Kheops Studio with an
anticipated ESRB of 'T' for Teen and "12+PEGI." For more information, .
