LOS ANGELES, USA – 16 October 2014 – Just ahead of its 10th Anniversary celebrations, Rising Star Games is continuing its digital dominance of 2014 with another new partnership. Having joined forces with Guildford-based developers Wonderstruck, the stage is now set for The Marvellous Miss Take – a fast-paced heist adventure packed with cunning, guile, and lateral thinking – to arrive for PC and Mac on 20 November 2014.
The story begins in the bustling heart of London, a once magnificent art collection has been unscrupulously poached and split up among private collectors around the world. Enter Sophia Take – the Marvellous Miss Take of the title and the rightful heir to the misappropriated masterpieces. To reclaim her inheritance, players must help Sophia as she embarks on an exciting and daring adventure across the capital; armed only with a talent for misdirection, she sets out to take back what was once hers.
Packed with thought-provoking dilemmas and high-security measures, The Marvellous Miss Take uses organized chaos to keep players on their toes. Successfully pilfering portraits is not as easy as it seems, thanks to guards that decide their patrol routes on the fly, security cameras keeping watch, and even innocent gallery-goers just visiting to admire the art. Only by using quick wits can players hope to grab the loot and escape unseen. And the best part? With a heist this big she won’t be doing it alone…
“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,” said Martin Defries, Managing Director of Rising Star Games. “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 Austin, 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 kind 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.”
