Default Mapoco Mountain

After several months my game is finally back on track. It's far from finished but I thought I'd just let you know about it. Daniel Thomas has done a great job on the new artwork.

Info
Mapoco Mountain is the first game being developed by Law 24 Studios. It’s a 2D point and click adventure based in a fantasy world of subtle satire and brief comedy. The game also has serious undertones with a submersing storyline. Can you help Malakey discover himself? Will he conquer his greatest fears and fulfill his destiny? Or will he stay hidden in Elkwood Forest for years to come? Take Malakey on a journey and get lost in the wondrous land of Astrumn Earth.

“Down on his luck and uncertain of his future after losing his job as an apprentice clockmaker, Malakey is looking for a little adventure in his life. Whilst drowning his sorrows one night, he accidentally stumbles across something sinister. Something dangerous and corrupt. He soon discovers that his knowledge of a strange plan could endanger his own life. Has he bitten off more than he can chew? Play as Malakey, an underdog reluctantly pushed into the role of becoming a hero. Scale a fantasy world of satire and comedy, interact with weird and wonderful characters, solving puzzles and discovering hidden truths lost in history.”

Release Date
Possibly late 2010 depending on financial support.

Is this from the same artist as before? Looks great, but also a bit different than the previous backgrounds.

lol Thanks heribertovalle, it's hard working with just a small team as I'm sure you know with your game but finding financial backing is proving to be very hard lol. I still hope to finish this game though.

Well that's something you'll have to negotiate with him. Can you send me an email to my hotmail address so as to relay it to him so he can contact you and negotiate? I'll tell him to keep the price down if he's able to. My address is [email protected]
