[8:30 AM] Horror Of Horrors, Stephen King Title Coming To The Mac
Blue Byte Software today released more information on the upcoming entertainment release from horror author Stephen King, F13. The product falls somewhere between a game and a utility, but certainly is generating significant interest. According to Blue Byte:
Stephen King's* F13*, which is designed to "take over" a user's computer, features the previously unpublished (in book format) King novella, Everything's Eventual; numerous interactive "King-esque" games and customizable desktops; "screamsavers" and more. The web site relaunched today, also features product screen shots, audio/video clips, links, product news and updates, and the opportunity to sign up for the Stephen King's* F13* newsletter.
"'Stephen King's* F13' is an Interactive Timekiller with a difference, stated Thomas Hertzler, CEO of Blue Byte. "The product will visually enhance the desktop environment in a very 'Stephen King' like way. We are thrilled to be working with such a legend in the horror world. Also, avid book readers will certainly not be left out, as they'll be getting an audio and visual experience with Everything's Eventual, turning their computer into a customizable personal theater/library." This product has been rated Teen (13+) [Animated Violence] by the ESRB.
F13 is expected to ship in January, and will be available for US$29.95. Customers who reserve an advanced copy at the Frightware web site will also receive a special mouse pad with their order. F13 is expected to be a simultaneous Mac/PC release. You can find more information at the Frightware web site.
