Eidos Interactive announced today that Michael Crichton's best-selling novel, Timeline, is being developed into an interactive world for release on personal computers this holiday season. This title is the first venture from the previously announced publishing agreement between Eidos Interactive and developer Timeline Computer Entertainment.
"There is a vast market of personal computer owners who haven't experienced the excitement of interactive entertainment and I see Timeline as a great introduction for them," said Crichton. "With its immersive story and diverse authentic environments recreating life in the 14th century, Timeline will have broad appeal."
Crichton, whose many best-selling novels include Jurassic Park, Disclosure and Airframe, is directly involved in the design and creation of the title. It is being developed at the North Carolina headquarters of Timeline Computer Entertainment, formerly called Timeline Studios.
"We're thrilled to work with as visionary a talent as Michael Crichton on this project, but rest assured, this is not a mere licensing arrangement," explains Mike McGarvey, COO of Eidos Interactive. "Mr. Crichton is directly involved to guarantee that Timeline exceeds the high expectations of his fans."
Timeline will break new ground with its strong emphasis on story, interactivity, and rich diverse environments modeled with historic accuracy. It correlates closely with Crichton's popular story about time-traveling students sent on a mission to fourteenth-century feudal France to locate their missing professor amidst the warring parties of the English and French. Assuming the role of a student, players in the Timeline world will experience first-hand the suspense, adventure, and danger of this medieval era. With its unique design focused on ease of play, Timeline will allow players to navigate their way through this world without complex keyboard commands or unnecessary hint books. Available at major retailers for the 2000 holiday season, Timeline will surely deliver the immersive story, authenticity, and fun Crichton fans have come to expect.
