A point-and-click adventure game with a mature "RPGesque" storyline from indie developer Crashable Studios

The vision of Crashable Studios is to make a point-and-click adventure with a retro feel (think Quest for Glory, Roger Wilco, Monkey Island, etc.) using “old-school” resolution, but with a unique epic twist. The game will also feature hand-drawn characters, backgrounds and animation.

You play Alum Descry, who lives in the city of Cosmos with his wife Esther. Lately, she has become despondent and uncommunicative. There are rumors that a malady called The Vague is sweeping through the city.

As Esther’s condition worsens and more people are afflicted, Alum fears for both his wife and himself as he feels his own heart growing cold and hopeless. 

Accompany Alum on a quest of epic proportions as he searches for answers, finds a much deeper force at work and ultimately discovers who he is and what’s really happening.

Alum has been successfully funded through Kickstarter.

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.
