Tetraedge is poised to bring another epic literary adventure to life on the iPhone in the next couple of weeks (this time with the help of iPhone publisher Chillingo), with a massive sequel to Silver Award-winning Jules Verne’s Return to Mysterious Island, further expanding on the events of the 1874 novel, The Mysterious Island.
The adventure sequel, entitled Secrets of The Mysterious Island, picks up immediately after Mina has unlocked the island’s secrets with the help of Captain Nemo’s ghost, and neutralised the magnetic shield that hides the mysterious island.
But a volcanic eruption causes her rescue helicopter to crash on the beach, Mina’s continued adventure takes an environmental turn as she realises it’s the island that needs protecting from our polluted world, and must reactivate the magnetic shield to protect this dangerous paradise.
Secrets of The Mysterious Island will weigh in at a Myst-sized 700MB, thanks to the epic girth of the game itself, it’s incredible visuals and atmospheric audio accompaniment. It’ll also pack in a few iPhone 3GS-specific features, such as using the digital compass and allowing you to move the device in 360 degrees to look around the island.
The final version will be available in five languages (English, German, French, Spanish and Italian) and should be landing on the App Store beaches ‘within weeks’, priced at £4.99 (or $6.99). In the meantime, check out the two Secrets of The Mysterious Island trailers below.
