Meet Leah

Leah is a student at the National University of Natural Sciences. She is studying well, doing sports and has a perfect relationship with her boyfriend. Leah has never faced any problems or difficulties. Life could have passed in this blissful ignorance...

Her story begins when she suddenly broke up with her boyfriend.. Problems in the University arisen, she failed her exams and was about to get expelled. Her life was rapidly heading towards the abyss.

The only solution she had in her mind is to get out of the town and leave all the problems behind for a while. So she jumped into the first morning train and went off to visit her grandmother in the mountain village.

 All these childhood memories have always brought comfort to her. She has started to remember her sweet home places and it seems like the problems have melted away.

But challenges awaited. It turned out that her grandmother is sick and urgently needs to be rescued. With the help of a local herbalist Korsak Leah managed to slow down the disease but in order to cure her grandmother completely she must prepare a special potion. Ingredients of which include a very rare mushroom called "Foxtail".

So, Leah started her journey to find the cure and to save her granny. Little did she know that this journey will not be an easy one.

Our very own childhood memories with games like The Legend of Kyrandia, Monkey Island and King’s Quest hold a strong impression with us. It is that pixel aesthetic that we are trying to pay homage to with Foxtail. Everything within the game has been hand crafted: menus, characters, objects, scenes and so on. Foxtail is a true pixel adventure point n’ click game.

The incredible hand crafted pixel art and animation will no doubt appeal to those who spent time with point n’ click adventure games when they were younger. We do hope however, that we can introduce a new audience as well to our game.

Our team has plenty of experience working with pixel art and have done an amazing job in creating the world of Foxtail.

Story is a key piece to any adventure game, and the world of Foxtail is full of interesting characters and events. Every person you interact with has a background and a role to play.

 Leah’s adventure is a personal one, but she will meet many colorful characters along the way that will request her help or friendship. Every decision that you make for Leah and others will have a lasting impact on the world itself.

Foxtail would not be a classic point n’ click adventure game without challenging puzzles, and Foxtail will deliver in it’s own right. For the veteran of the genre we are offering a game mode called Without Prompting, which will remove any help assistance from the game.

Exploring Foxtail you will be working with objects, potions, finding hidden objects, solving logical conundrums and puzzles. You will also discover more about the world on your journey with stories and diary entries. Foxtail is filled with stories within stories, waiting for you to discover them.

Each new chapter will present more challenges as you progress in the story, for example in one chapter you will learn about herbalism and potions, and in another you will discover minerals or intricate ancient machines. The characters that inhabit Foxtail also have their fair share of problems that you can take the time to help them with to. Leah’s diary will guide your adventure, and there will always be something of interest in Foxtail.

Goals and stretch targets

€35,000 - “The Basic Gathering” By reaching our funding goal you will be supporting the full-time development of Foxtail. This will allow us to pour all of our resources into finishing the game with our undivided attention and determination. The final game will feature more than 200 locations, over 50 challenging quests, and an occupied world of interesting characters. Foxtail will be available for Windows PC, Linux, MacOS, iOS and Andoid

€55,000 - “Healer” FREE DLC At this level of funding we will be expanding the world of Foxtail with free DLC, that will follow the adventures of the cryptic herbalist, Korsak. Korsak’s story will take place 70 years before Leah’s, and will include many more interesting locations and characters.

TEAM

Risks and challenges

There are risks with any crowd funded adventure, and Foxtail is no exception. Foxtail to us, is a pursuit of a dream that takes us back to the point n`clicks of yesterday, to the games that we enjoyed in all of their floppy disk, pixel art glory. We want to bring that dream to you, to entertain those who experienced these games when they were younger, and to animate a new generation of point n` click adventure lovers.

If we fund our goals we will be able to enter full-time development on Foxtail. This is really important to us as we could use the time to develop the aesthetic and significantly refine the Wintermute engine for our needs. Community funding is integral to our success. Thank you for taking the time to support Foxtail.

Foxtail arriving tentatively, in February 2017
