Scarecrow Studios is an independent game development group based in Ireland. Founded in 2016 by Jan Serra, the team is self-described as a “group of video game lovers who have the skills to bring wonderful projects to life.”


Scarecrow is hard at work on their first adventure game, 3 Minutes to Midnight. Set in the 1940s, this point-and-click title will follow the story of Betty Anderson as she attempts to unravel a secret plot to extinguish humanity. Her quest is made more complicated by the fact that she (and everyone else) have inexplicably had their memory wiped clean.

This single player adventure will be presented in 2D graphics that have a unique style. If the initial artwork is indicative of the final game, it will be a visual delight. Scarecrow promises a mood-setting soundtrack, English voice-overs, and puzzles that “can be solved by an experienced player.”

Scarecrow is aiming to release 3 Minutes to Midnight in early 2019. In the meantime, you can find additional information on the game’s website.

Cindy’s love affair with gaming began when she opened a mailbox in front of a white house and took the first step in a long series of adventures. ‘Back in the day,’ Cindy was a regular contributor to JA and an active member of the online gaming community. She has attended several E3s and has had the pleasure of spending time in person with both Ray and Randy. Her all- time favorite adventures include the Tex Murphy series, the Gabriel Knight series, and The Longest Journey. She also enjoys RPGs and her list of ‘best ever’ includes Fallout, Asheron’s Call, and Planescape Torment. Â Frustrated with the cost of rising PC system requirements, Cindy decided to switch to console and tablet gaming. Although you can teach some old dogs new tricks, she discovered that console controller dexterity is a skill set that she is lacking. Her results with tablet gaming were not much better. With the exception of a few gems such as The Room and Forever Lost, there is a limit to how much one can play Candy Crush and Hidden Object Adventures. Having proved that pure escapism is worth the investment, she has a new gaming laptop and is back to her search for the perfect adventure. Â After spending most of her life in Los Angeles and Atlanta, Cindy escaped the stress of urban life and moved to rural Arkansas. To show that she has become a true Arkansan, she has taken up deer hunting, wears pink camo, and put a chicken coop in her backyard. On a stressful day, she can be heard yelling ‘Woo Pig Sooie’ when all else fails.
