Demetrios Barrels Down the Kickstarter Home Stretch (Goals) – November 5, 2015

Demetrios is a quirky point-and-click adventure inspired by such classics as Broken Sword and packed with tons of humor!

Bjorn Thonen is a slob of an antique dealer living in Paris. He’s robbed one night after returning home drunk. Worse yet, he’s forced to conduct his own investigation. He enlists the help of Sandra, his neighbor, and they both land in “a murky, mysterious affair” with ancient secrets to discover.

Demetrios has been created with both new and seasoned adventure gamers in mind. It will offer a high degree of interactivity and puzzles that vary in difficulty.

The look of Demetrios is similar to that of a visual novel, featuring hand-painted visuals and animated characters in full HD. And be on the lookout for pinches of Discworld (humor), Gabriel Knight (comic cutscenes, character’s heads/dialogs) and Phoenix Wright (first-person view investigation). The game will offer 8-to-12 hours of fun-filled gameplay.

Demetrios – The BIG Cynical Adventure will be released May 31st on Steam for Windows, Mac and Linux. It can also by pre-ordered DRM-free from the game’s website, where a limited box version is available as well. The game is to arrive on PS Vita late in 2016.

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.
