Sifteo Releases Ice Palace, Its Second Game in the Sandwich Kingdom Series

Sifteo's In-House Game Design Team Continues to Grow in Both Talent and Titles; Game Released at Maker Faire 2013 in San Mateo, California (May 16, 2013)

SAN MATEO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/16/13 -- Sifteo, Inc., the creators of Sifteo Cubes, today announced the release of its newest game, Ice Palace (www.sandwichkingdomgame.com), at the annual Maker Faire press conference. Sifteo Cubes are an interactive game system that combines the best of cutting edge game technology with the timelessness of tactile play.

Ice Palace is an adventure game featuring addictive maze exploration and epic storytelling. As the next chapter to the Sandwich Kingdom franchise, Ice Palace continues the epic fantasy adventure on Sifteo Cubes. The series' original game followed the adventures of Princess Pearl, while this installment spotlights the Dread Pirate Pickleback -- also known as Cobb Salade -- in his search for the legendary and eponymous Ice Palace.

Neighbor Sifteo Cubes to reveal a path through the Frozen North, and press a cube to tell Cobb where to go. Encounter a motley cast of characters including ravenous penguins, fearsome owlbears, and a bumbling explorer with mysterious motives. Solve puzzles and guide Cobb as he treks through snowy canyons, slides along frozen rivers, and spelunks into icy caverns. During the exploration, an ancient secret proves his quest is just the tip of the iceberg.

"Sifteo cubes can be windows into another world, and that's exactly what our awesome games team has built with Ice Palace," said David Merrill, co-founder of Sifteo, Inc. "It's really cool to see innovative game development on Sifteo Cubes, both from our own game studio who produced Ice Palace, and from independent developers like the Kokoromi Collective, and Chris Osborn of bit.trip, just to name a few."


Those attending Maker Faire 2013 in San Mateo, CA the weekend May 18th and 19th at the San Mateo County Events Center, can be the first to play Ice Palace. Visit Sifteo in the Expo Hall at booth 452. See the Sifteo Blog for more details on booth events.
