Rick Future is a classic point-and-click sci-fi adventure built for the PC in 3D, using Crytek’s CryENGINE 3. The game, based on the popular German audio-play series Rick Future created by Sven Matthias, is being developed by indie game studio MetalPop.

The storyline of the game stretches over three chapters and will follow the crew of the cargo ship Eric as it sets out to reveal ancient mysteries, discover the wonders of the
universe…and finds a way to pay off its debts!

It all starts as a quick and easy delivery job: pick up some cargo and drop it off in the Gon’dual sector, which should yield enough credits to make basic repairs to the Eric.

But what starts as a routine job quickly turns into a dangerous chase in one of the most dangerous sectors of the galaxy on a hunt for long lost treasure.

The player has full control of the game’s three heroes: Rick, the captain of the Eric; Hubert, the grumpy Golwonian mechanic; and the robot lady Evi.

Rick Future features classic point-and-click gameplay with many fresh ideas and new features made possible through the use of a modern 3D engine, while still feeling like one of those ‘good old adventure games’ at the same time.

The game will be released as a digital download for PC in 2014.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
