Retro-Futuristic Point & Click Adventure, Hoodwink, Now Available for PC Download

Featuring challenging puzzles and a bizarre cast of characters, Hoodwink is filled with intrigue, conspiracy and a good dose of mischief.

KUALA LUMPUR -  June 29, 2012 – E-One Studio, an independent game developer, today announced that its first PC adventure game, Hoodwink, is now available on Origin™ (http://store.origin.com/store/ea/en_US/pd/productID.252318100?easid=Origin_Hoodwink_Web_Tier2_BuyNow). Plunging players into the dysfunctional dystopian world of Global-01, this post-epidemic adventure title puts players in control of Michael Bezzle, a small-time thief trying to make good and impress the girl of his dreams in a battered megalopolis.

However, the all-powerful corporation Unicorp has other ideas, and set against a retro-futuristic backdrop, you’ll have to deal with bureaucracy, ruthless lawmen, chocolate-loving cyborgs and a vicious killer plant before you settle with the girl. Featuring challenging puzzles and a bizarre cast of characters, Hoodwink is filled with intrigue, conspiracy and a good dose of mischief.

"Hoodwink was a load of fun to work on,” says writer, Chris Kuok, known fondly as CK in the studio.
“With a mix of acidic humour inspired by Grant Naylor’s Red Dwarf and Terry Pratchett’s Discworld, anyone looking for a good time will find plenty in our comical tale.”

Hoodwink is a classic comic adventure game that is deployed through the E1 game engine which delivers atmospheric cel-shaded graphics that bring the murky backstreets of Global-01 to life. The game is further enhanced by a haunting soundtrack from award-winning composer Leon Willett*.

Hoodwink is now available for PC, exclusively on Origin, and priced at $14.99. Localized text versions are available in German, French, Simplified Chinese, Russian, Spanish, Portuguese and Italian.
