A previous Kickstarter campaign having been unsuccessful, indie developer Wave Interactive tried again and has been triumphant.

Buck is a 2D adventure that’s set in a haunted and sombre post-apocalyptic wasteland. Explore a beautiful hand-drawn world with a visual style of classic point-and-click adventure games mixed with a quick and slick style of modern 2D platformers.

You play as Buck, a motorcycle garage mechanic who decides to leave everything he knows behind in order to find the truth behind a girl’s disappearance; all while struggling to adjust himself to a world he doesn’t fully understand.

Traverse the sands of Venganza, a carefully built 2D world with hidden passages, dark secrets and remorseless characters. Negotiate with the salty denizens of Westown, each with his own goal and agenda.

Destroy enemies with Buck’s own hand-crafted, upgradeable weapons. Complete missions in varied and distant locations while fighting off many different types of enemies. Earn and loot Scraps to purchase more items and upgrade your arsenal.

Buck has been inspired by a real-life dog belonging to Gal Kfir, project lead.


Buck will be released on Windows, Mac, Linux and PS4 in Q2 2017.

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. "I put my heart and soul into my work, and have lost my mind in the process." - Vincent Van Gogh "I need solitude for my writing; not like a hermit - that wouldn't be enough - but like a dead man." - Franz Kafka "I've been to hell and back, my boy." - Susan Ashworth, The Cat Lady
