iWin announces the launch of Jewel Quest™ Mysteries: Trail of the Midnight Heart!
SAN FRANCISCO – July 17, 2009

iWin, Inc., a leading developer and publisher of online casual games, today announced the launch of the long-awaited Jewel Quest Mysteries: Trail of the Midnight Heart, a sequel to last year’s mega hit Jewel Quest Mysteries: Curse of the Emerald Tear.

In Jewel Quest Mysteries: Trail of the Midnight Heart, the main character, Eva Witheby, winds up far from home and amidst strangers.  It's hard to know whom to trust when treacherous trails and veiled secrets abound. Players help Eva uncover relics in eye-catching hidden object screens and all-new scrolling search screens that put the player in the front seat of whizzing planes and a whirlwind adventure.

“We took all the things that worked well from the original hidden object game and added new game mechanics and twists to immerse the players in this innovative puzzle adventure,” said Dennis Cheng, lead producer on the game. “You must now find tools along your journey to unearth precious shards that, when pieced back together, let you enjoy the richness of Jewel Quest, the award-winning match-3 game.  And, as you progress through the story, find hidden jewels that will help you buy all new power-ups and uncover the secret behind the midnight heart.”

Jewel Quest Mysteries: Trail of the Midnight Heart is also iWin’s very first game to be launched in its all new Premium Games offering.  The Premium Games category is designed to showcase the best games that the industry has to offer.  They boast of high-production value, captivating gameplay, and unparalleled hours of fun.  These are the games that every casual game player has been eagerly anticipating for months.

“We wanted to make sure that people who aren’t comfortable joining clubs still have low-price options when it comes to playing games,” said iWin.com General Manager, Peter Negulescu.
