Saint Kotar Playable Demo Previewed at Reboot Develop Conference

Recently, Tanais Games successfully hosted their playable demo of Saint Kotar during the three day Reboot Develop conference in Dubrovnik, Croatia. Their indie booth was almost always occupied during the event, with people curiously stopping by and playing the game. Reactions from the players were great, they liked what they experienced!

It gets even better, Tanais Games were visited by a player who has a special meaning in the community, a true legend: Charles Cecil [founder of Revolution Software, who brought you Lure of the Temptress & Beneath a Steel Sky]! Mister Cecil played the whole preview version and gave his word to help us once the Kickstarter campaign launches. Yes, he liked Saint Kotar, and we were both humbled and proud!

Currently, there isn't an exact release date for the playable demo and the Kickstarter campaign launch. They are both scheduled to take off this spring. We'll let you know right away when these happen here at Indie Retro News!

What is Saint Kotar?
Saint Kotar is a 2.5D point and click adventure game in development for Windows, Mac, and Linux. The game merges psychological horror narrative and classically inspired point 'n click adventure mechanics with switchable characters. Hand-painted in a distinctive art style that fits the game’s mood, fully voiced and featuring an eerie original soundtrack, Saint Kotar draws inspiration from p&c classics like Broken Sword, Gabriel Knight and Black Mirror, along with the works from horror fiction writers such as H.P. Lovecraft and Edgar Allan Poe.

What is it about?
Invited to attend an exhibition of rare medieval art, the protagonists travel to Sveti Kotar at the end of October 2006. The welcoming is cold, as they find themselves dragged abruptly into a macabre series of murders, allegedly related to devil worship and witchcraft. These dreadful acts compel the protagonists to follow the shadow of something deeply hidden behind the town’s dark past.

Who are Tanais Games?
Tanais Games is an indie game development studio from Croatia specializing in point & click adventure games. The studio’s first and currently only title is Saint Kotar.
