New for Mac from G5! Looks to be part hidden object, party puzzle and part adventure!

9 Clues: The Secret of Serpent Creek

9 Clues: The Secret of Serpent Creek Revealed on Mac Today, care of G5 & Artifex Mundi

Reveal the evil that clutches Serpent Creek and stop a nefarious plot to bring the Snake God back to our world!

San Francisco, California – April 16, 2014 – The evil forces have decided that the town of Serpent Creek is the best place to perform the ritual to revive Snake God. In the newest, eerie hidden object adventure game from G5 Entertainment and Artifex Mundi – 9 Clues: The Secret of Serpent Creek, you will have to save the town from this terrifying threat! The game arrived to the Mac App Store today, so download it to your Mac and start your rescue mission right away! No time to lose!

Your closest friend, journalist Helen Hunter, traveled to the coastal town of Serpent Creek to report on the Serpent Festival. Now she’s missing, and the last phone call she made was to you. As a paranormal private investigator, Helen wanted you to weigh in on some frightening things she’d discovered. She asked you to come immediately.

The first thing you see upon arriving in Serpent Creek is a humanoid, snake-like creature. Clearly, Helen’s fears were not groundless. It seems the town’s streets are crawling with snakes, the ground shakes with violent tremors, people are sleepwalking and to make matters worse, no one remembers a blonde journalist. You’ll have to investigate mysterious locations and solve challenging puzzles to piece together clues about what happened to your best friend. Reveal the evil that clutches this crippled town and stop a nefarious plot to bring the Snake God back to our world!

Here’s the trailer.

9 Clues: The Secret of Serpent Creek brims with eerie atmosphere, features immersive storyline, crisp graphics and pleasant voice over. It features an innovative detective mode that fans of the genre will love – on some hidden object scenes items on the search list (such as fingerprints, blood stains or murder weapon) are revealed only after you have located them. When the list is completed, you’ll have a retrospective of events that happened on the place. Hours of tense and pleasant gaming experience await you in 9 Clues. The game is developed by Artifex Mundi and published on Mac OS by G5 Entertainment.

Key Features:

- 53 eerie locations

- 13 clever puzzles and mini-games

- Six strange characters

- 19 achievements to unlock

- Thrilling story set in 1950s America

Get it at the Mac App Store: 9 Clues: The Secret of Serpent Creek for Mac. The game is also available on iPhoneiPadGoogle Play and Kindle Fire.

New #Maleficent Featurette The Legacy And Embrace Your Inner Evil Sweepstakes

I’ve known for years that Maleficent is one of my Mom’s favorite Disney villains if not her most favorite villain.

Who’s your favorite Disney villain? I’d really like to know, please leave a comment!

Maleficent Poster

The new “Legacy” featurette, from  MALEFICENT, featuring a behind-the-scenes interview with Angelina Jolie, is now available.

“Maleficent” explores the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the classic “Sleeping Beauty” and the elements of her betrayal that ultimately turn her pure heart to stone. Driven by revenge and a fierce desire to protect the moors over which she presides, Maleficent cruelly places an irrevocable curse upon the human king’s newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Aurora is caught in the middle of the seething conflict between the forest kingdom she has grown to love and the human kingdom that holds her legacy. Maleficent realizes that Aurora may hold the key to peace in the land and is forced to take drastic actions that will change both worlds forever.

The film stars Angelina Jolie as Maleficent, Sharlto Copley, Elle Fanning, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple and Lesley Manville.

“Maleficent” is produced by Joe Roth and directed by Robert Stromberg, with Angelina Jolie, Michael Vieira, Don Hahn, Palak Patel, Matt Smith and Sarah Bradshaw serving as executive producers. Linda Woolverton wrote the screenplay. “Maleficent” opens in U.S. theaters on May 30, 2014.

Also, starting today, fans can enter for a chance to win a trip to the world premiere of the film in the Maleficent “Embrace Your Inner Evil” Sweepstakes. Fans can enter by recreating Maleficent’s laugh and posting the video to Instagram using #MaleficentLaughSweeps. Official Rules: http://di.sn/MaleficentLaugh.
