San Mateo, California – 6 July, 2011 – Making her video game debut, Scarygirl, the creepy-cute star of her own popular graphic novel created by acclaimed artist Nathan Jurevicius, is now starring in Dr Maybee and the Adventures of Scarygirl. Developed and published by TikGames, the game is now available in Europe, Australia, and New Zealand for the PlayStation®Portable System as a “mini” title, initially available only to PlayStation Plus users at 20% off the full price. The game will be available to all users on 20 July.
“We’re giving Scarygirl fans the chance to play the game on the go” said Alex Tikhman, Co-Founder and VP of Publishing & Business Development for TikGames. “For people who haven’t read the graphic novel, this is a great opportunity to get introduced to a bizarrely-wonderful world in a fun, portable, mini game.”
Dr Maybee and the Adventures of Scarygirl is a marvelous adventure through the Scarygirl universe. In the game, Scarygirl will attempt to discover the identity of the mysterious, bearded man haunting her dreams. Scarygirl, the part-octopus girl who dresses like a pirate, has a tentacle for her right hand and only a bone for her left hand, is the star here, though each friendly or treacherous creature she meets will certainly be unique. With help from her friends, the quick-witted Bunniguru and Blister the giant octopus, she will journey from her treehouse home in the forest to an overwhelmingly unfriendly city in her quest to locate Dr Maybee. The game is a completist’s paradise, as each level allows players to search high and low for hundreds of gems, fish, and other items to collect.
Dr Maybee and the Adventures of Scarygirl has been rated 12 (Violence) by PEGI. Dr Maybee and the Adventures of Scarygirl is based on the online flash game which was produced by Passion Pictures Australia and developed with the assistance of the Film Victoria Digital Media Fund.
