Pompei - The Legend of Vesuvius (US: Timescape - Journey to Pompei)

Original-Name: "Pompei - La Colere du Volcan"

This is the first chapter of a trilogy annonced by CRYO (the second chapter is "Jerusalem")
In a trilogy the hero has to save Sophia, his beloved who has disappeared, three times in three different epochs and bring her back to her own time. This first episode is set in Pompeii in 79 A.D. You have just four days in which to identify, find and win over Sophia to convinde her to leave before Vesuvius buries the city. Four days to become a citizen of Pompei and save his beloved.
Our hero is Adrian Blake, an explorer and world famous cartographer. Adrian Blake, trapped in a mountain cave, surrounded by a raging war, fears his exciting and adventurous life is almost at an end. The goddess Ishtar appears before him and offers to save him in exchange for his love. Rejecting her advances and safely returning home, Adrian discovers that his fianc?e is missing. Realizing that Ishtar has cursed him, Adrian searches ancient scrolls to invoke the goddess to help him find Sophia. Instead, Ishtar challenges him to go back in history to Pompeii in the year 79 A.D. and win the love and trust of Sophia, as a complete stranger.
Adrian must race against time - he is aware that Mount Vesuvius is destined to erupt in just 4 days...


- A recognized mastery of the Historical Adventure genre by Cryo, the RMN (reunion of national museums of France) and Arxel Tribe.
- An innovative scenario: a race against time, an immindent cataclysm and for the first time a love story as the motor of the storyline.
- Detailed recreations of architecture and environments based on extensive research by internationally renowned experts.
- Action, humor, an extended lifetime and a hero with an original personality.
- 360 degree movement in a 3D graphically splendid environment.
- Many challenging environmental and tactile puzzles.
- Immersive and captivating non-linear gameplay.
- There is a very big documentary base in that game. And you can can also visit Pompeii in "Visiting-Mode", what means just walking down the streets without playing the game. - That 3D-Reconstruction of Pompei was confirmed by best international experts. The Reconstruction was created with help of "Soprintendenza Archeologica di Pompei".
