With the basic goal reached, it's time to think about Stretch Goals!
Something obscure is crawling behind the dazzling glaze of Miami, a force that goes beyond the usual human concept of science and religion. There is a silent, latent war going on, a war able to shatter the foundations of civilization, harnessing ancient knowledge and mystical arts lost for centuries. Get ready to face a long and dangerous journey.
It might be the last.

We are here on Kickstarter because we need your help to complete work on The Hand of Glory. Even though the game is nearly complete through internally funding, we still have to record voices and add a series of finishing touches that we can't really do without your help! And we’ve prepared a dope series of exclusive rewards that will never be available after this campaign! Here's where the money will go towards:
Stop for a second and sail with us on a quick trip.
You're on Mêlée Island and ready to do anything to become a mighty pirate, including sliding on a rope with the help of a rubber chicken with a pulley in the middle. You're in Lochmarne, Ireland, on the trail of a serial killer disguised as a clown (or emperor penguin, or leprechaun) when you come to grips with the worst of your enemies: a malevolent goat.
You're in Rennes-le-Château, immersed in the mysteries of the Languedoc, and you run into one of the most intricate puzzle of all time: Le Serpent Rouge.
We can go on, because the challenges you've faced already are endless. But now it's time for you to embark on a completely new journey!
We want the player to feel completely immersed in the game world, so we’ve chosen locations that are real places where you can actually go. Here is where the adventures of our brave detective will happen!
Imposing skyscrapers, sunny beaches, music, golden sand. These and much more constitute the heart and soul of one of the most recognizable cities in the world: Miami, kissed by the sun all year long!
But remember: the brighter the light, the darker the shadow it generates.
San Leo, Italy
'Making of' of the "San Leo" location!
The esoteric side of the tale leads to Italy, and in particular to a medieval town in Emilia Romagna, called San Leo.
We obtained official patronage by the town (of which we’re very proud) and received active and stimulating cooperation, which allowed us to faithfully reproduce many real places rich in history and mystery.
Explore this fascinating borough and prepare to bring to light secrets buried for centuries under a net of conspiracies, historic machinations and events that normal science can’t explain!
In The Hand of Glory you will interact with more than 30 characters! Let's meet some of them!
Alice Sharp - Making of
Let's admit it: being able to play an adventure game in your own language is becoming a luxury nowadays. The reasons are many, but we can narrow them to just the main one: budget. Many developers are forced to stick to English even for subtitles, and this limits the game experience for those who don't know this language fluently.
That's why we decided to make the effort to translate our free demo in as many languages as we could, to offer a glimpse into how it could be to play the game in your language, thanks to the support of the WARLOCS, who will take care of all the text localization of the full game as well.
We'd really like to translate the game in as many languages as possible, but it's nearly impossible for a new indie team with a limited budget. That's where you come into play: we will produce the game in English (voice and subtitles) and Italian (subtitles) - your support in this campaign will decide the other languages, as explained in the image below.
Now it's up to you! Spread the word about the campaign in your circle of friends, as we hope that 50 backers is an attainable goal to be able to enjoy a PROFESSIONAL localization in your native tongue!
You skipped everything else to get immediately to this section, right? Then now, without further ado, here are the rewards that you can get your hands on by pledging to our Kickstarter campaign!
Part of the cast: This is your chance to physically enter the world of THOG. Lend your appearance and voice (in your language!) to a character who will be included in the game for Lars to interact with!
Sponsorship*: You're a developer/company and you want to share some of the 'Glory'? Here's your chance to do just that! Your trailer or a promotional image will be included in a clever way in THOG, for everyone to see it!
*We reserve the right to NOT accept content of dubious racist or sexist nature.
Pledging for an add-on is really easy!
If you want any add-ons, you just have to add the following amount to the reward you've selected.
About the "Mysterious Scroll"
At this point you're probably wondering what this "Mysterious Scroll" is that you've been reading about among the rewards. Basically it's going to be a fictitious (but realistic) medieval scroll containing a suggestive, ancient speech.
The scroll will also contain a hidden message that will allow you to unlock a secret scene... if you're able to decipher it!
We're a small team, but we love what we do and we truly believe point and click adventures still have a lot to give!
Risks and challenges
Producing a video game is not an easy task: you have to struggle against deadlines, budget balancing, bugs and the development itself. But since the team has experience with these kinds of challenges, we’re confident we will be able to carry out this project with minimal risk.
Furthermore, you will be able to follow the development process in real time through our constant updates, our social media channels and our email contacts. For our part, we will be as transparent as we can, always listening to your advice and your feedback.
We only have one goal: deliver the best possible game to you guys!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
