Developer Red Cloak brings us a 2D, lo-res sci-fi cinematic platformer/adventure for Windows, Mac and Linux

Your name is Rook. You’re rudely awakened when the orbital prison facility in which you reside crashes on the ruins of an abandoned Earth.

After recruiting a group of other survivors including a hacker called Jin, you must struggle to stay alive, faced with prisoners who aren’t so friendly not to mention bizarre parasitic extra-dimensional creatures that haunt the planet.

At its core, Wanderer is a cinematic platformer. However, it’s enhanced with mechanics and ideas from other genres: old-school JRPGs, Bioware-style Western RPGs, classic point-and-click adventures and Telltale-style narrative experiences. This will make for a unique, story-driven adventure RPG with a distinctive visual aesthetic that merges lo-res pixel art characters with a hand-painted world.

Wanderer is being developed by just two people — Cris Ripamonti (Concept, Art, Design, Writing) and Serge Lages (Programming, Design) — collectively known as Red Cloak. The game is slated to be released in September 2016 for PC/Windows, Mac and Linux.

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.
