That’s right: Midnight at the Celestial Palace is a fantasy point-and-click musical adventure. This is the first of three planned chapters.

Meet Greg. He’s 37-years-old and a professional underachiever. Join him as he’s whisked away to a magical dreamland beyond the stars, befriended by an otter named Sir Squiggles.

Accompany the pair as they make a harrowing journey through a whimsical realm called Dreamania to find the wondrous Celestial Palace, as great peril looms in the shadows.

You’ll also find a healthy dose of humor, a good story and plenty of interesting characters to meet along the way.

The game will offer gorgeous storybook-like art and animation in a cozy retro style.

Chapter 1 should be 3-4 hours in length. Along with the game’s own musical accompaniment, there will be three interactive songs. You’ll get to pick the lines you want to sing at certain points in the game, and the nature and tone of the accompanying music will reflect your choices.

Midnight at the Celestial Palace: Chapter 1 is set for release on Windows in February 2017. Watch for it on Steam and other digital distribution platforms.

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.
