Daedelic Entertainment's Edna & Harvey: The Breakout, voted "Best Adventure Game of 2008" at the German Game Developer Awards, is making the trip stateside courtesy or Merscom.
Edna & Harvey: The Breakout is a 2D adventure game that tells the story of Edna, a perfectly sane girl who wakes up in a mental hospital with no recollection of how she got there. She obviously shouldn't be there....just ask her talking stuffed rabbit companion Harvey and he'll tell you. It's a quirky, humorous title that hearkens back to the good old days of simple point and click adventure goodness. The only real problem with the game is it was completely in German... until now.
Merscom is bringing the game to America, translating it to English in the process so we can understand what is going on! That's just the kind of value-added feature I can really get behind.
"Given our success bringing great and engaging adventure games to the evolving mass market, we believe Edna & Harvey is a wonderful addition to our line-up," said Lloyd Melnick, Merscom's Chief Customer Officer. "Casual gamers, in particular, are looking for innovative adventure games and you don't get much better than the adventure game of the year from probably the most sophisticated adventure game market."
Look for Edna & Harvey to hit the PC in downloadable form sometime in Q4 or this year. In the meantime, Google translate this!
