52% funded mid-campaign!

Fun fact (or proof that my sanity is at stake in this story), I thought mid-campaign was... yesterday! Haha! So I was over-motivated to reach the 50% funding before end of Tuesday and... WE DID IT

The campaign has taken a good turn. Don't get me wrong, it's still a marathon and nothing is won yet but I'm optimistic about the outcome!

1388 people are gonna play LUNARK! INSANE!

Also, Kicktraq, Backerkit, and Biggercake "report" us successful. Well, I'm careful with those projections but I can't help it: it's good for morale.


Lunark's Artwork

I am so focused on promoting the campaign that I have not yet thanked the many people who have helped me. In fact, I'm going to save it for the end, whatever the outcome, I'll never forget the generosity and talent of the people involved.

However, there is one person who deserves your full attention. I am sure you already know him from his previous artworks: Justin Chan

I've been looking to work with him for several years. His style is perfectly suited to Lunark's spirit. He understood my intentions, especially regarding Leo and his ambiguous origins. He has done a wonderful piece of art in a very limited time frame. If the KS is a success, I hope he'll keep working on the project!

Thank you my friend



CROSS-PROMO TIME!

MAUPITI ISLAND by Cup Of Games

Have you ever heard of the game "Mortville Manor"? It's a point-and-click adventure game developed and published by Lankhor (Vroom anyone?) in 1987 on Atari ST. There were several adaptations, amongst the Amstrad CPC, Amiga, DOS ports. The game incorporated stunning (back then!) speech synthesis.

Well, Mortville Manor was followed by its sequel Maupiti Island, taking place on a tropical island.

THE REMAKE

"30 years later, it's hard to find games that put as much energy to immerge the player in a deep, complex and captivating story. Productions with that level of quality can be counted on the fingers of one hand. 

Which led us to wonder : What if we rethink Maupiti, keeping his soul, while endowing it with today's technologies? To allow old and young players alike, to (re) immerse themselves in its complex narration within a reworked, re-sounded, re-adapted environment?"

Oh god, there's way more than 16 colours now... ;)

"Prepare to confront deep and complex people (11 different characters!), and to adapt to different psychological profiles and attitudes, that will also evolve during your investigation!"

"While keeping the main characteristics of the original game, many new features will improve your experience:"

  • Lead your investigation in an exotic and mysterious 3D environment
  • Use your magnifier glass to reveal hidden clues
  • Use your flashlight to light up dark areas
  • Establish peoples schedules, remember previous answers and confront suspects 
  • Collect information and objects, and combine them to find new leads
  • And more!

Go check the campaign and support the game!
