Can Sophia Take reclaim her treasures?
Yesterday RSG (Rising Star Games) revealed a brand new partnership. This partnership is with Wonderstruck, a Guildford-based group of developers. This collaboration will kick off with a game known as The Marvellous Miss Take, a fast-paced heist adventure “packed with cunning, guile, and lateral thinking”. The Marvellous Miss Take will arrive on November 20, 2014 for both PC and Mac.
The game takes place in London. A magnificent art collection has been stolen and split up amongst private collectors. Now it’s up to Sophia Take (the Marvellous Miss Take of the title), the rightful heir to these misappropriated masterpieces, to reclaim them. In order to do so, you will need to help her embark on an exciting and daring adventure across the capital. Sophia is armed with a talent for misdirection, but nothing else.
Reclaiming this art collection won’t be as easy as it sounds, however. You’ll need to deal with ever-vigilant security cameras, guards who decide their patrol routes on the fly, and even innocent gallery attendees that are visiting to admire the art. You’ll need to utilize your quick wits if you hope to claim the loot and escape unseen.
Martin Defries, Managing Director of RSG, stated, “As soon as we saw The Marvellous Miss Take, we simply knew we had to sign it to the Rising Star stable of digital gaming titles. It’s a wonderfully fresh take on a genre that’s become too predictable for its own good, full of vibrant color and interesting characters. I’m absolutely convinced that players all over the world are going to love what Wonderstruck has created as much as we do.”
“The Marvellous Miss Take was born from a love of original gameplay, and we are delighted that Rising Star Games share that passion,” said James Austion, the Studio Head of Wonderstruck. “We threw away the tired stealth rule book and have created a thrilling heist game where players need to be smart, nimble, and constantly think on their feet. Miss Take delivers a truly modern heist game, starring a new type of criminal gearing up for a new type of crime. Rising Star Games is the ideal publishing partner and we are excited to release the game together.”
