PopCap Games Announces Open Beta of Hidden Agenda on FacebookFacebook" align="left" hspace="10" width="200">

PopCap Games, a worldwide leader in mobile and social games and a division of EA, today announced the open beta launch of Hidden Agenda, an exciting hidden object game (HOG) on Facebook, featuring a town full of anthropomorphic characters involved in a local murder mystery that you get to solve while working both cooperatively and competitively, with and against your friends.

"Hidden Agenda is a fresh take on the HOG genre, but deeply rooted in PopCap's proven heritage, which includes the best-selling series such as Mystery P.I. and Amazing Adventures, among others," noted Kurt Busch, executive producer and general manager of the Vancouver studio at PopCap Games. "With this new game, we're extending the genre with a compelling story and rich characters, as well as great game challenges and social features that elevate the entire category."

In Hidden Agenda, everyone has a secret. Players unravel the truth as a rift between two families (Rourke and Fairfax) threatens to tear a town apart. Behind the town's pleasant façade, there are secrets to uncover where players will meet the ultimate challenge to solve cases that reveal new locations as they discover the secrets of the rival families.

With its mainstream launch (next month), players will Engage in Season #1 of Hidden Agenda: The Puzzle of the Poisoned Planner, featuring 12 cases, 48 hidden object scenes, a starring cast of 25 characters, hundreds of hidden object jobs around town, thousands of hidden items to find, dozens of quests to complete, more than 30 buildings, each with three to six levels to upgrade, and one cliff-hanger mystery to solve: who killed the Town Planner? Hidden Agenda will launch with an initial 6 cases (24 hidden object scenes), with plans for PopCap to release new cases every month.
