A Series Of Unfortunate Events
A Series Of Unfortunate Events is a single-player game based on the Lemony Snicket book series and film. It was released in November 2004 by Activision and made available for PlayStation 2, GameCube, Xbox, Game Boy Advance, Windows and Java ME.
The game is based primarily on the film, which in turn is based on the plots of the first three books of the series: The Bad Beginning, The Reptile Room and The Wide Window. Players take the roles of Violet, Klaus and Sunny Baudelaire, solving puzzles, fighting villains and finding objects.
A significant feature has Emily Browning, Liam Aiken and Jim Carrey reprising their roles from the film while the voice of Lemony Snicket is provided by Tim Curry.
"Life for the Baudelaire orphans is incredibly unpredictable and rather unfortunate, after losing their parents in a mysterious fire, the orphans are sent to live with their sinister Uncle, Count Olaf, who will stop at nothing to get his hands on the Baudelaire fortune!"
