Demetrios – The BIG Cynical Adventure

A point-and-click adventure from indie developer COWCAT inspired by the Broken Sword series


Written by on


Become antique-seller Bjorn Thonen who, after coming home drunk one night, is robbed. With the assistance of next-door neighbor Sandra, he investigates the crime only to become caught up in a mystery complete with ancient secrets.

Demetrios will offer a fresh take on the classic point-and-click adventure, adding cynical humor to characters’ motivations. The game is inspired by the Broken Sword series, seasoned with pinches of Discworld, Gabriel Knight and Phoenix Wright.

The game’s situations and puzzles will be varied, with a high contextual level of interactivity. It will also offer full HD, hand-painted visuals and animated characters in first-person perspective, similar to visual novels.

Developer COWCAT plans to release Demetrios early in 2016 for PC, Mac and Linux. The game will support English and French; with the possible addition of Spanish and German.

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.
