Announcement: Heron: Steam Machine launches October 16th in Europe (WiiWare™)

Leeuwarden, The Netherlands - October 12, 2009 - Triangle Studios announces the European release date of its first WiiWare game, Heron: Steam Machine. As soon as this Friday, October 16th, European players will be able to enjoy Heron: Steam Machine on their Wii™!

About Heron: Steam Machine: Ron, the factory mechanic, has been working at the factory for Rubber Duckies for many years. On one dark morning, Ron comes to the shocking discovery that his boss is going to hand over control of the factory to his evil son! The son raises production targets as soon as he takes charge of the factory, and Ron will have to work at least twice as hard in order to be able to keep the steam machine running. Players can help Ron out by maintaining the steam machine, and prevent it from breaking down!

One of the most important aspect of Heron: Steam Machine is its multiplayer features. Instead of going up against each other, players will have to co-operate in order to keep the steam machine running. Are you and your friends able to work together as a team? Make sure to test your team spirit in the Multiplayer mode of Heron: Steam Machine.
