Based on historic events, Cross of the Dutchman tells the story of “Grutte” Pier Gerlofs Donia, a 7-foot-tall hero with the strength of an ox who stood up to the oppressors of his land after a great injustice was done to him and his family.

The game features historically accurate environments, a rich storyline, an aesthetically unique art style, large battlefields and detailed, hand-drawn cutscenes.

Cross of the Dutchman will be released on PC and Mac in September 2015, 500 years after the  events that inspired it. A Greenlight campaign is in progress.

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.
