About

 

 

There aren’t enough funny video games out there. That’s a fact! There are tons of comedy shows and movies on TV and on the silver screen… but on PCs and consoles? Nope. We want to change this!

Click here to read our story in your language:

 

 

Shakes & Fidget – The Adventure is all about silly fun. We are not "Citizen Kane", we are "The Naked Gun meets Spaceballs".

 

 We love crazy point & click adventure games like "Day of the Tentacle" or "Sam & Max", with demented characters, hair-raising stories and whacky puzzles.

Great cartoon-style graphics by Shakes & Fidget creator Marvin Clifford and tons of 2D animations to feast your eyes upon. And for your audio enjoyment only the best voice actors and an orchestral score!

It is time for a straightforward, fun 2D point & click adventure game. If you feel the same, we are counting on your support.

 

The more support you will give us, the bigger and better we can make Shakes & Fidget – The Adventure for you.

 

 

If something exists in the fantasy genre or in pop culture, we will probably make fun of it. Seriously… we don’t have any ideas of our own.

The story begins with our two heroes in their familiar environment. They are living tranquil lives as shop owners.

A plea for help beckons them to a far-away land where they encounter new friends and foes, as well as a few familiar faces…

You will be able to explore about 50 different locations in the game, from a desert to snowy mountains to the lion’s den.

During the 8 to 10 hours of the journey, you will meet more than 50 characters and monsters, all of them elaborately animated.

 

 

Shakes & Fidget – The Adventure is being created by a dream team of adventure enthusiasts. Playa Games, makers of the "Shakes & Fidget" mobile game, instigated the whole endeavor.

KING Art Games, creators of The Book of Unwritten Tales, are developing the game.

Marvin Clifford, one of the creators of Shakes & Fidget, is developing all the characters and is the Art Director of the game.

The music is being composed by Benny Oschmann ("The Book of Unwritten Tales", "The Raven", "The Dwarves"), our animators and graphics artists previously worked on games like "Deponia" and "The Dwarves".

The whole thing is being developed on PCs. The same type of computers that has been used to develop World of Warcraft! The entire development team is based in Europe, the same continent on which Game of Thrones and Star Wars were filmed, and many of our developers are carbon-based lifeforms, just like J. K. Rowling, Mel Brooks and the creators of Dungeons & Dragons!

Why Kickstarter?

KING Art has already successfully delivered three Kickstarter games. Kickstarter helps to develop the games that you actually want. Instead of developing "something" behind closed doors for a year, we are building a community through Kickstarter at the very beginning of development to help us make Shakes & Fidget – The Adventure into the best game it can be.

 

One of the best things about successful Kickstarter campaigns is that it enables you to design tons of crap that wouldn’t have existed without it! Don’t you dare and be unsuccessful, Kickstarter campaign! WE WANT ALL OF THIS!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

There is very little doubt in our mind that we can deliver a great game as promised:
- This is our fourth "Kickstarter Game", we already delivered three games successfully.
- We know how to make adventure games and already made other games with the technology.
- The team has worked together for years and waited a long time to make a game like this.

However, game development is tricky and not without risk:

- Key team members might get ill or leave the company and it might be tough to find appropriate replacements.
- Us or our partners might get into financial or legal troubles that prevent us from finishing the game.
- There might be technical problems or unforeseen changes on consoles or with our middleware “Unity”.
