Bolt Riley – A Reggae Adventure Chapter 1 tells the story of a young man growing up in a very poor area of Kingston, Jamaica. He loves music — reggae in particular — and wants to become a singer.

Bolt Riley is a collaborative effort by Lori and Corey Cole, creators of the Quest for Glory series, and indie developer Adventure Mob. They’ve returned to Kickstarter with a 7-day campaign to raise the money required to finish the game.

As Bolt, players will discover inspiration, write great songs and assemble a talented group of musicians. Bolt must also deal with gang members who try to draw him into the world of crime.

Choose a path of peace and confront the violent environment in which Bolt lives. Help townsfolk, reunite families, help out an old lady with a cat and bring joy and harmony to Bolt’s neighbors.

Oded Sharon, Adventure Mob’s CEO: “We’ve decided to experiment with crowdfunding with this short campaign. Most of the funds in a Kickstarter campaign comes from the first 3 days and last 48 hours of the campaign, while in the middle there are a bunch of very slow days that are really stressful for the campaign owner, so I decided – why not just take these out and focus on the start and end of the campaign? So far it seems like it’s working. We’re already at an amazing 30% of the funding goal, and that’s only after one day.”

Sharon continues, “In this harsh time of war in Israel, I decided to focus on creating a positive game experience and bring joy to our audience, and Bolt Riley does that with a story of peace, love, and of friendship.”

The Kickstarter campaign ends on August 8th. The game will be released by April 20, 2015.

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.
