Strategy First to publish Seal of Evil in North America

Strategy First, Inc. and Object Software announce that they have signed a North American publishing agreement for Seal of Evil. The game is anticipated to be released in Q1 2006. Seal of Evil is a mythical take on the tumultuous time marking the fall of the Zhou imperial dynasty.

Out of this chaos emerges an uncompromising ruler, Ying Zheng, who has vowed to either unify China or bury it in fire. Gamers will play as the warrior princess Lan Wei along with her band of warriors, and will attempt to search for the mythical Empyrean Stones - their only hope for saving their village from Zheng and his advancing armies.

Combining ancient legends, mythic storytelling and historical fact, Seal of Evil sets the stage for an epic adventure where players struggle to thwart the Qin invasion from of their peaceful homeland.
