In the tradition of Point and click games, a new steampunk-inspired game will soon be available.



How Quaint!

The game is being craftfully produced here in Mexico (in english, rest assured) and will be available for download trough the Aethernet itself. Many a gentleman remembers the traditional point and click adventures as immersive and fun filled games where story mattered.

 The story rotates around the young lassie, mechanic and adventurer: Violet Vendetta in her epic quest to discover the legacy of the vendetta family. It features:

 - A fantasy steampunk world filled with airships and steam.
 - A gigantic zeppelin airship to travel the world in.
 - Hours and hours of silly yet scientifically endearing puzzles.
 - A deeply involving storyline in a world of machines and mistery.
 - Commonplace books. Lot's of them.
 - Many a grimoire.

 The game's sprites are already drawn and are being animated. Backgrounds are hand drawn and are being produced. Script is done for the first chapter and  most of the design is too. If you think you have a good idea for a puzzle/situation of steampunk nature please LET US KNOW. We'll soon launch a webpage for the game progression and will offer screenshots too.

 Have a nice day!

Interesting. Out of curiosity will there there a way for user created scenarios to be added in/included in the game? I ask as you would be supprized at how creati8ve and inventive user made stories and situations can be when you just hand them a grab bag of elements and a way to put it all together(like lego, only on computer!).

 That's interesting, but adventure games in the point and click / graphic adventure genre are totally linear (well, they can have "branching" storyline paths and different endings and solutions.) and aren't really the type to accept or accomodate user created content. Can't really feature that option.

A pity, but considering the game itself needs to be built its best to focus on that first and then on the additionals later(though I say there should be a way for user created campaigns to be playable since it would greatly extend the entertaining lifespan of the game). However before I toss ideas out I'd like to know the basic settings and anything not quite fitting with history that should be known about.

 Do consider Mr. Lazaras that the game is story focused. Ever played a point and click adventure? Examples: Full throttle, Monkey Island, Kings quest, Space quest, Quest for glory, Day of the tentacle, Maniac Mansion, etc etc...

 The setting of the game is a steampunk fantasy world where magic has begun to "slip" into the real world and steam machines via a nefarious bewitched cog known as the black gear.

 Altough the main "Quest" of the game is to team up with a band of justice bringers known as the Vendetta family to track and destroy the black gear's origins, the game itself begins quite simple: in a small town with two orphans from Miss Dicken's home for wayward lassies that have a penchant for trouble and for acting like amateur sleuths.

 You Control Violet and her ever present sidekick: Welma. Mostly the game consists on investigating, talking and combining/picking up items in the proper order to advance the storyline. With puzzles in-between all that. All of this is done via mouse actions that include: "examine, Talk to, Pick up, Use, etc..."

 Because Welma likes to make tall tales of everything she experiences, you can read clues on puzzles and the game's progress from Welma's commonplace book.

 That's the game in a nutshell.

Sounds great! I do enjoy point and click games, Monkey Island is one of my all time favourite games.  I look forward to its completion!

I used to love the King's Quest series. If it's anything like that, I'll totally play it.

Looks cool. I was just playing Monkey Island, Grim Fandango, and Fate of Atlantis a couple weeks ago.

Though I have to say the plot sounds just a little bit like Girl Genius.

Grim Fandango is quite possibly my favorite pc game ever.
This one looks fool. I approve of point-and-click adventure games, as well as text-based ones, quite strongly.

 I love girl genius. And the plot really is nothing of the sort, trust me.
 I actually thought it would be cool to include a cameo of Agatha later in the game as a background element. Gotta ask the authors about that, but that's just an idea.

By the way! We've finally decided on an interface for the game. There goes.


We're working on backgrounds so we'll have working screenshots pretty soon. I'll probably upload 3d renders of the Airships later on.

Nice UI. Clean, appropriate feeling withut having hard to read fonts(god i HATE designers that try to go in on the 'fancy' fonts for menues and the like that are hard for me to read).
