FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SAN RAFAEL, CA – April 20, 2011 – Telltale Games, the leader in interactive episodic entertainment, today announced that Hector: Badge of Carnage Episode 1 - We Negotiate with Terrorists will be released April 27 for PC, Mac and iPad and has a very long title. PC and Mac gamers pre-ordering this this lewd, crude and gritty law-enforcement comedy will receive a free copy of the multi-award winning game Puzzle Agent.
Hector, a tough-talking, soft-bellied British cop —known by some as “the fat arse of the law”— is a flawed misanthrope with an unhealthy taste for all things criminal or smothered in curry. When terrorists strike in the crime-ridden town of Clapper’s Wreake, this drunken lawman becomes the only hope for justice. Now, the flatulent detective has a choice to make: carry out the terrorist’s curiously altruistic demands, or watch as his fellow officers are picked off one by one. Hector is still on the fence.
With high praise from reviewers and players alike – scoring 9/10 from Eurogamer and receiving a coveted Editor’s Choice award from IGN, this visually enhanced PC, Mac and iPad version of the game features improved hint and save-game systems and is the first of a three game series. Episode 2 - Senseless Acts of Justice and Episode 3 - Beyond Reasonable Doom will release on PC, Mac, iPad and iPhone later in 2011.
PC and Mac versions of Episode 1 can be preordered for $9.99 from www.HectorGame.com. Preorder customers will receive instant download access on launch day, a free copy of Telltale’s award-winning Puzzle Agent (PC / Mac) that can be downloaded and played immediately plus exclusive access to the Hector: Badge of Carnage Insider Forum, providing direct access to the development team and behind-the-scenes goodies throughout the remainder of the series’ development. Telltale will also donate 10% of all preorder sales to Japanese disaster relief efforts.
