SANTA CLARA, Calif., April 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Hungry Moose Games together with Green Throttle Games is proud to announce the development of its first internally produced title, 9 Lives: Casey & Sphynx. The game follows the exploits of a misfit couple: Casey the security guard and Sphynx the stray cat with an attitude who risk their 9 lives on an archeological adventure. 9 Lives: Casey & Sphynx is a puzzle-based action adventure game for Android with particular focus on Green Throttle's new Atlas controller.
Based in a local museum showcasing the ancient Egyptian tomb of Bastet, you can play on your own or with a friend on the same screen and navigate the misfit duo through a maze of action-packed puzzles where death is sometimes the only option. Collect pieces of the idol of Bastet, which Casey smashed to reverse the age old curse and return the world to normal.
"Hungry Moose Games is a new studio based in Edmonton, Canada put together by ex BioWare veterans and the young guns of games," said Ric Williams, co-founder of Hungry Moose Games. "We are excited to develop our first title with Green Throttle. The challenge of making a game using the latest in hardware technologies that connect your Android device to a TV fits 9 Lives like a glove and we think gamers will love our misfit characters and device specific game play."
"We think the Hungry Moose team came up with a really fun concept for a game that will nicely take advantage of the Green Throttle experience," said Charles Huang, CEO of Green Throttle. "Playing local multiplayer on an Android tablet or through the TV will make you connect with Casey and Sphynx in a totally different way. We can't wait to see this one launch."
