Game Profile

Set in the late 1980s, gamers will take on the role of a fearless mountaineer as he climbs into the Himalayas on a quest to find his lost brother.

As he ascends the mountain, he encounters an ancient curse: the souls of the people who died in that region are stuck in limbo, caught in the Shadow World. Villagers, pilgrims, mountaineers and Buddhist monks – dead but not yet reincarnated – are all that is left on the mountain. Terrible visions will disorient him, and ghosts and demons block his path. But the question remains – is his brother still alive?

Designed exclusively for Wii, Cursed Mountain features rich visuals and breathtaking views – set on the roof of the world in the life threatening death zone, the entire game world is visible from every level. The gesture-based combat system takes full advantage of the Wii motion sensitivity. Players will use the Wii RemoteTM to look around, sense the environment, climb and fight enemies.

Psychological horror games are well up at the top of my list, and so is this title. I can't wait for this to be released. With each new video and screenshot I see it just appears all the more incredible.

A pre-order is on the cards, I think. :)

Underrated, will be a sought after classic in a matter of time, believe me.
It's difficult at times, not very fast pacing but sheer atmospheric and suspenseful because of it. Some camera-views will really take one's breath away. Nuff said!
