I think it's about time we put those platformers aside and look towards an Adventure game that may excite those who played that fantastic game 'Broken Sword'. Welcome to ' Saint Kotar ' developed by Tanais Games ; a psychological horror and point and click adventure game, with switchable characters that draws its inspiration from the classics such as Broken Sword and even Monkey Island. Furthermore it's also inspired by the works from horror fiction writers such as H.P. Lovecraft and Edgar Allan Poe.
Invited to attend an exhibition of rare medieval art, the protagonists travel to Saint Kotar at the end of October 2006. The welcoming is cold and atrocious, as they find themselves dragged abruptly in a macabre series of murders, allegedly related to Satanic worship and witchcraft. These dreadful acts compel the protagonists to follow the shadow of something deeply hidden behind the town’s dark past. Surrounded by a tenebrous aura of mystery, madness and fear, the protagonists to survive have to struggle not only against the unknown, but against themselves too, ultimately uncovering the vile truth of their own past.
In development for the PC, including Mac and Linux with a release date of 2017 for Steam and possibly GOG. Saint Kotar will have a digitally hand-painted art style to fit the game's dark mood, fully voiced acted characters, an eerie soundtrack, and much more that will give Saint Kotar a more atmospheric adventure feeling. I for one am really looking forward to this game, as if it's anything like Broken Sword or even Monkey Island it should be really good.
