Shutter Island Game LaunchesMeh
Merscom and Paramount Digital Entertainment announced today’s release of Shutter Island, a hidden object, casual adventure game inspired by the upcoming Paramount Pictures’ feature film. Now available for Windows, the game is being launched in conjunction with the film’s theatrical release.
From Oscar®-winning director Martin Scorsese, Shutter Island tells the story of two U.S. Marshals, Teddy Daniels and Chuck Aule, who are summoned to a remote and barren island off the coast of Massachusetts in 1954 to investigate the mysterious disappearance of a murderess from Ashecliffe, the island’s fortress-like hospital for the criminally insane.
In the Shutter Island game, players take on the role of Marshal Daniels and search Shutter Island to try to find the escaped murderess. As the game progresses players attempt to locate other patients who have disappeared during the hurricane.
Players find clues and messages across seven levels and 20 environments, creating unique interactions with characters from the film. The game also contains multiple mini-games that allow players to decode clues and unlock secret areas of the institution. The game reflects the plot of the film, while introducing players to new patients and quests inspired by the film.
“Shutter Island is a fantastic story, it is perfect for a casual game and we are confident the market will love it as well as the movie,” said Lloyd Melnick, Chief Customer Officer at Merscom.
Shutter Island is now available on Windows PC and is rated T for teen by the ESRB. The game is available on major game portals, including Big Fish Games, Real Arcade, Reflexive.com and iWin.
