Adventure Time: Finn and Jake Investigations

Santa Ana, CA. – October 20, 2015– Little Orbit today announced the all-new, real-time, fully 3D action-oriented adventure game Adventure Time: Finn and Jake Investigations is now available on Xbox One®, PlayStation® 4, And Nintendo Wii U™, Xbox 360®,Playstation® 3 and Nintendo 3DS™ at both traditional and online retailers. The game ranges from $29.99 (3DS) to $39.99 (PS3, 360, Nintendo WiiU) and $49.99 (PS4, Xbox One).

Developed by Vicious Cycle and based on the hit Cartoon Network original series, Adventure Time: Finn and Jake Investigations is first and foremost an adventure game, but it is one that also features combat. Players will be able to dive right into both kinds of gameplay within each section of the game! With an action-oriented twist on the classic story-driven game, players must find and use objects (including Jake), and interact with characters in order to solve puzzles and progress through the game. Play as Finn (with Jake at your side) and be immersed in the Land of Ooo, talk to new and familiar inhabitants, battle evildoers, and unravel mind-bending puzzles in five playable chapters. Through this one of a kind experience, players will feel as if they've stepped into their own personal episode of Adventure Time!

"With this title, we wanted to put players directly in the action with a truly unique 3D visual style," said Matt Scott, CEO of Little Orbit. "This is a beloved series with a loyal following and we wanted to take players to the Land of Ooo like they've never experienced before. In this game players will genuinely feel like they are "playing" an episode of the show."

For the first time ever, bonus downloadable content will be available in an Adventure Time console game in the form of an adventure featuring Finn and Jake's friend Marceline the Vampire Queen. Just like the five chapters built into the game, this additional chapter plays out like an episode of the series, with players taking on the persona and vampire abilities of Marceline. In this original adventure, Finn and Jake discover that Marceline sold all of the magical but potentially dangerous artifacts they have collected in a Yard Sale. Help Marceline and our heroes retrieve all the artifacts before chaos and calamity take over the Land of Ooo! The Marceline DLC will be available beginning October 27.

Let's take a look at the Tree House! It all begins at Finn and Jake's Tree House, which serves as the central hub of the game. Investigators are invited to make their way inside and begin each of their adventures in the easy-to-explore tree house complete with multiple rooms, each stocked with cool interactive items from the show. For the first time, Adventure Time fans can explore every single room in glorious 3D detail. From the front yard, to the treasure room (where players will collect their loot), the kitchen, bedrooms, living room, attic and more, players will be able to interact with their favorite characters from the show and explore like never before.

My Kingdom for a... great view in 3D! With likenesses incredibly true to the series, Adventure Time: Finn and Jake Investigations will allow players to see as much as they can of the Land of Ooo and its kingdoms in a way never before seen. Each chapter of the game will take players to more kingdoms and give them an opportunity to visit key locations in each unique kingdom. From the Candy Kingdom (loaded with all kinds of lush sweets) to the Ice Kingdom (filed with pointy, snow-capped mountains and snowy hills) and Wizard City (a magical settlement with a marketplace!) to Maja's (the sky witch's) Forest, they are all there in gorgeous 3D.

Additionally, secret un-lockable bonus locations are scattered throughout the game and will include spooky forests and subterranean dungeons.

Little Orbit Releases New Adventure Time: Finn and Jake Investigations Screen Shots

Adventure Time: Finn and Jake Investigations

Adventure Time: Finn and Jake Investigations is an all-new, real-time, fully 3D action-oriented twist on the classic story-driven graphic adventure game. Finn and Jake decide to carry on the profession of Finn's parents, who were Professional Investigators. Confronted with mysterious Land of Ooo disappearances and strange events, players will question colorful inhabitants, dispatch evil doers in fast-paced combat, solve mind-bending puzzles, explore new and familiar locations, and genuinely feel as if they have stepped into their own personal episode of Adventure Time, the hit animated series from Cartoon Network.

At its heart, Finn and Jake Investigations is a modern take on a classic adventure game, a genre that has seen a recent resurgence. Gameplay is based on exploring, investigating, and puzzle-solving. Through the course of the episodes, you get to interact with dozens of your favorite Adventure Time characters all over the Land of Ooo, including the Candy and Fire Kingdoms, Wizard City, and Castle Lemongrab.

And there's a reason for all of this investigating! Joshua and Margaret—Jake's mother and father, who also raised Finn—were seasoned detectives back in the days before becoming parents. They received their assignments from a machine called the "tickertype," which printed out information on various cases. Now, Finn and Jake have unearthed the tickertype and decide to go into the investigation business themselves.

Rather than following a single story arc that spans the entire game, the adventure plays out as a series of separate (but related) adventures in which Finn and Jake must travel the kingdoms of Ooo in order to solve the tickertype mysteries, set around the middle of the sixth season of the show.

Investigating and puzzle-solving are the heart of the game—but, wait! There's more!

The game's not focused on fighting, but what would Adventure Time be if Finn couldn't solve at least some problems with his trusty sword? Combat is fast-paced, pitting Finn against a variety of familiar foes who drop lots of collectibles and loot (as game enemies so often do). When you go back to the Tree House after each "episode," you'll see piles of dosh grow in Finn and Jake's treasure room.

The depth of the story and the amount of character interaction really immerses you in the game—and the icing on the cake is the visual presentation. For the first time ever, you get to see the Land of Ooo in eye-popping 3D. We have gone to great lengths to faithfully capture the art of the show as it's never been seen before.

Finn and Jake Investigations hits the shelves this fall. Be there!
