In Asylopole, inspired by such games as Monkey Island, Blade Runner and Sanitarium, you play Adam, a psychiatrist. You work in an asylum, where your task is to get inside your patients’ heads. In the process, however, you are directly confronted by their worst nightmares.

Asylopole is a non-linear classic-style adventure with alternative gameplay elements that takes place in a vast universe. It features 2D hand-drawn graphics, rotoscoping and stop-motion, and has a “’90s feeling.”

The game will offer adjustable difficulty, controller support and varied gameplay. Side-quests are included — and let’s not forget the tasty burgers.

French developer Mickaël Pixoala has launched a Greenlight campaign for Asylopole, which will be released on Windows at a date TBD.

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.
