Safecracker Coming to Nintendo Wii

Yet another PC game is making the transition to Wii, in the form of 'Safecracker'. Following the success of Secret Files: Tunguska, Agatha Christie: And Then There Were None and CSI4: Hard Evidence, it was always a safe bet that more PC adventure point-and-click titles would be making their way to Nintendo's Wii console. Now the latest issues of UK publication NGamer has confirmed that the 2007 PC game Safecracker: The Ultimate Puzzle Adventure is making the transition to Wii thanks to publisher JoWood Productions, which brought Agatha Christie to Wii and is releasing Telltale Games's Sam & Max: Season One later this year.

According to Amazon UK's listing of the PC game, we can expect:

  • A challenging puzzle adventure game with 35 unique safes to crack;
  • Explore 40 lavish and intriguing rooms of an extravagant mansion created in beautiful detail;
  • Decipher unexpected clues inside each safe that will help you open the others ultimately leading you to the master safe;
  • The ultimate challenge for puzzle enthusiasts and wanna-be safecrackers;
  • Evolving game map allows players to navigate easily through the mansion accessing various rooms;
  • Easy to hard puzzle difficulty to challenge all types of puzzle enthusiasts;
  • Non-linear approach to exploration and safecracking;
  • From the developers of best-seller Return to Mysterious Island.
Also voted the 'Puzzle Game of the Year' for 2006 by PC Gamer magazine, here is the official blurb on the title:

"Are you ready to challenge yourself and play as an expert safecracker? Experience a unique adventure and find a hidden testament locked somewhere in a multitude of safes. You are hired by the wealthy family of a deceased eccentric billionaire to search for the last will of their late relative. He has hidden the deed to his riches in one of the 35 safes scattered in his imposing mansion. The stakes are high and you will need your experience, wits, deductive and puzzle-solving skills to decipher all the clues discovered within this terrific adventure! Unlock the challenging puzzles left by the late safe collector and earn your paycheck!"

The PC edition, from French developer Kheops Studio, scored 83% in PC Gamer's November 2006 edition and should definitely benefit from added Wii controls, just as Agatha Christie: And Then There Were None did.

Screens from the PC game can be found in the title's media folder for a hint of what to expect...
