"Samantha Swift fans have been asking for more, and we're excited to bring her first adventure to the NDS," said Cottam. "We're currently working on her next adventure, which will explore the fountain of youth and will debut later this summer on both the PC and Apple's iPad."
Next up for the Dallas-based developer, a number of Nintendo DS titles will launch during the third quarter, including Midnight Mysteries: The Edgar Allan Poe Conspiracy and 7 Wonders II.
