MONTREAL (Quebec), June 15, 2004 – Knights, on guard! MC2-Microids announces the launch of its very latest title, Knight's Apprentice: Memorick's Adventures, developed exclusively for the Xbox platform. In the company of Memorick, an apprentice knight, we will be carried off to the enchanted world of Merlin on the island of Avalon where he will fight valiantly to protect his native land against the forces of evil.
Players will be transported back to the magical age of Arthurian legend with its dragons, goddesses, fantastical characters and the mystical sword Excalibur.
"The entire family will be enthralled by the adventures of apprentice knight Memorick and by the game's exceptional images and characters," says Emmanuel Olivier, President of MC2-Microids. "It took some thirty talented developers at our Montreal studio two years to create this enchanted world."
The adventure-style game was produced entirely in MC2-Microids' studios in Montreal. Gamers will be able to explore its fantastic universes 19 levels and four distinct modes on horseback or on the wings of a griffon, and do battle against any of the twenty-six monsters that have leapt from the Montreal developers' imagination.
