Casual game of the year: Seattle-produced "Agatha Christie: Death on the Nile"

Posted by Brier Dudley

Topping the Zeeby awards given Thursday night during the Casual Connect conference was "Agatha Christie: Death on the Nile," a mystery game produced by Oberon/i-Play's Seattle studio.

Designer Jane Jensen is a lifelong Christie fan.

"We tried to take a fresh approach that appealed both to people who already knew the story, as well as new Christie fans who had not yet been introduced to her wonderful works,'' she said in the release.

Robert Adams was the game's producer.
