"The Interactive Adventures of Dog Mendonça & Pizzaboy"'s prototype was the first project we started to develop independently in OKAM STUDIO, the one that brought us together for the first time and made us a team. 

We’re asking for your help to fund the last stage of the production, have the team focus on the project for the next months and complete the development for Q2 2015. 

We estimate that the project is 80% completed and we need your help to finish that last 20%! The game is written fully in English, and we need to finish the art, including animations, and program the mechanics of special events. The stretch goals will cover making the game more accesible with translations and voice overs. 

The Authors of the original comic book series are also involved in the development.

                                                        
            
                        
                         

For a long time, humans and supernatural beings have lived their lives in relative peace. This is all because of “The Code”, a set of rules that prevents the latter group from interfering with the lives of us, the so called normal people. Lisbon has become the new Casablanca of this day and age, where humans live their lives unaware of all the unusual guests. Unaware, of course, unless someone breaks The Code.

That’s where Dog Mendonca and his investigation team come in.

"The Interactive Adventures of Dog Mendonça and Pizzaboy" expands the world of the critically acclaimed comic book "The Incredible Adventures of Dog Mendonça & Pizzaboy" by Filipe MeloJuan Cavia and Santiago R. Villa. John Landis ("An American werewolf in London") wrote the prologue to this first episode.

Resembling a B-class horror movie, the comic book has been praised for its twisted, bizarre and offbeat sense of humor, mixing werewolves, Nazis, the Vatican, zombies and other abominations with lots of hilarious references to timeless films and beloved video games.

The unexpected success of the comic followed, and soon the authors were signing contracts with Dark Horse for international releases. Then, a second book that continued Dog Mendonca’s and Pizzaboy’s adventures came into order and it was time for George Romero ("Night of the Living Dead") to lend his signature and seal of approval: : "The Extraordinary Adventures of Dog Mendonça & Pizzaboy: Apocalypse".

Last year, thanks to contributions of loyal fans and backers, the final book in the Dog Mendonca’s trilogy; "The Fantastic Adventures of Dog Mendonça & Pizzaboy: Requiem" was published! Keeping up the tradition of forewords written by gods of the genre; Requiem shipped with a foreword by legendary director Tobe Hooper ("The Texas Chainsaw Massacre")!

Plus the compilation of 4 special stories that were specially developed for "Dark Horse Comic`s Presents" editions: "The Untold Tales of Dog Mendonça & Pizzaboy".

LISBON
LISBON

In ages past, Lisbon was the stage of great power struggles, a powerful capital and a strategic point that separated the Old Continent from the vast ocean that lead into the New World. Nowadays things haven't changed that much. What looks like a normal city extends its webs of mystery like an iceberg, deep beneath its surface. For the supernatural beings of this planet, Lisbon is the new Casablanca, a terrain that belongs to no one, where the hidden politics of an unseen world are at play and normal folks stress to build a life among all the forces in conflict. It is an asylum for the disenfranchised hordes of vampires, goblins and other such creatures but, like any other place like it, it's also harrased by the interest of different political agendas, secret societies and organized crime. In Lisbon, every shadow has eyes and every eye is witness to a new mystery.

WHY AN ADVENTURE GAME?

There are certainly a lot of good reasons besides Double Fine's Kickstarter success (yeah, we all know the story) to do an adventure game. The vision of Filipe Melo with DM&PB was to make a story inspired by his favorite movies and videogames. Not surprisingly, most of those games belonged to the "Monkey Island" franchise."

A lot of the essence of the comic book resembles the classic elements of the genre (bizarre characters, witty banter, detailed backgrounds, bizarre or puzzling situations, etc), and besides that it's still one of the best genres available to tell stories (specially comedy).

"The Interactive Adventures of Dog Mendonça & Pizzaboy" will consist of episodic but self-contained adventures, each presenting a new case for the group to solve. The mystery goes deeper than what the group expects, forcing them to work their full potential.

This game will dig deep into the graphic novel's universe. With new original stories.

Every episode of the game tells the story of a case. This first episode deals with Eurico's first real case. After being hired by a mysterious woman, the werewolf detective himself, Dog Mendonça, has disappeared. No one has heard or seen anything suspicious. No one knows where he is. He just vanished.

As the junior investigator and unpaid intern Eurico, you'll have to delve into the world of the occult, that's hidden in plain sight in the city of Lisbon, in order to unravel the mystery. You'll have to interrogate witnesses and suspects, search for clues, solve puzzles to remove obstacles and probably break a couple of laws in search for the truth. You'll also have the chance of digging deeper into the series mythos and learn a couple of secrets about the characters, that we won't spoil out of politeness to you.

Okam Studio is a video game development studio based in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

It's been almost three years since the current team of Okam Studio first worked all together in a point-and-click prototype called "The Interactive Adventures of Dog Mendonça & Pizzaboy"

Since then, we have worked together on different projects, and a year ago we settled our goal to finish this first game.

We recently launched the coproduction with SQUARE ENIX Latin America: the mobile game “ULTIMO CARNAVAL”.

"ULTIMO CARNAVAL" is a Collectible Card Game for the latest generation of Smartphones created by the first collaboration between SQUARE ENIX and a Latin studio: the Argentinean OKAM STUDIO.

Godot is a fully featured, Open Source (MIT licensed), game engine. It was developed in-house for the past 7 years, and has been used to publish many titles by our studio and other 3rd party developers, for PC, Mobile and Consoles over the years. Because it's our internal tool, we have complete control over its development, and know it better than anyone. This allows us to create games without the need to compromise features, and gives us complete freedom to adapt the engine and tools to the needs of our team and our game.

Upon completion of this first episode Okam pledges to release the tools used in our studio for making point and click adventure games.

Risks and challenges

"The Adventures of Dog Mendonça and PizzaBoy" was our first project as a team, and taught us a lot of things about how to work together, and with the tools available to us. We've dedicated a lot of time and work to its development, and at the current level of completion (about 80%) we have many things figured out, including pre-production, production workflow, art style, technical requirements, etc, and developed all the tools necessary to build an adventure game with our engine. However, like with any video game, and like with any project with a heavy narrative aspect to it, development can be challenging and full of surprises.

The members of our team have decades of experience producing content and OKAM itself has been in business for over 5 years, and we believe that we are capable of tackling those challenges.

The Authors of the original comic book series are also involved in the development making sure that the spirit of the comic book series stays alive in the game. In fact Santiago R. Villa is one of the Co-Founders and the Art Director of OKAM Studio.

At this budget level, backers should feel highly confident that the "The Adventures of Dog Mendonça and PizzaBoy" will be finished with a high production quality.
