Default Kaptain Brawe *New Upcoming Adventure*

Anyone heard of this upcoming game? I actually just stumbled by the website by accident (typo) and came about something that I actually am pretty impressed with. The game features a point-and-click gameplay in a 2D world ala Monkey Island 3. There is actually a demo out currently out that was enjoyable and has left me wanting for more.Seems as though the game isn't due to hit retail until Christmas this year, so we have a wait, but I though I would share the demo with you all.

Oh and here are a few screens:

I played the demo a couple of weeks ago and it looked pretty cool. However, the interface didn't work properly, and I was unable to interact with more than half of the objects in the game. Needless to say, it wasn't much fun.

I don't recall having any glitches or bugs throughout the entire demo. That's unusual.....hopefully they will get that fixed for the main game.

The developer has posted about this a few times here (albeit in the Underground section ). But I remember her saying she would eventually charge a bit for future episodes.

I also played the demo a while ago - Had no problems with the interface or anything.

I enjoyed it quite a lot. Lovely 2D cartoonish grafics that reminded me of Curse of Monkey Island. And the same sort of wacky characters and humour as those Lucasart games from last decade.

I really look forward to the release of the full game - but sadly these kind of independent game projects have a tendency to be abandoned by the developer before they're finished.

No... she seems pretty tenacious (I get that impression reading the threads I linked to). It may possibly be slow going (because she's the only one doing it) but I think it'll get done.

Actually, I don't know many details, but the game was picked up by a publisher. Instead of being episodic it will be one big game.

Yeah, Green is right. She confirmed that on her website. The game would come out in one whole version with a small charge (she suggested perhaps $10-15) for the full game. She claims that the game could be about 10-12 hours long, which is pretty decent for an adventure game, not to mention an indie one.

Beautiful game, but there is no story nor voice on the demo. That's a pitty, because the game looks promissing.

Yeah, that is a very common pitfall for indie games. Voices can add a lot to a game but sometimes, if done poorly, can detract from it too. Maybe they realized that?

I imagine the cost of hiring good quality voice actors is very high.

Exactly, which is probably why they chose no voice acting instead of poor acting.

The demo would require only two dubbing actors. It's not very expensive (at least not here in Brasil). Anyway, it's good to see a new adventure in the market.

The demo was made LONG before the game had a publisher or any sort of budget. I'm sure the final game will be far more refined than the demo.
