Zak McKracken goes looking for Hot Coffee (in several wrong places) is a classic point and click adventure game. It is a sequel to Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders, set right before the events of the fan game Zak McKracken - Between Time and Space.

A classic point and click adventure game that pays homage to the LucasArts adventure games of the 80s and 90s.

Development began as a test project to get to know the Visionaire engine but it slowly took on a life of it’s own. Originally building on assets from the fan game Zak McKracken - Between Time and Space, adding new animations, several new locations,  and reworking the interface.

Supported languages are English and German.


It’s a labour of love, I hope you enjoy playing it as much as I did making it.

This looks like it could be fun.

Just to be the annoying guy, LucasArts didn’t make any games in the 80s.

(Lucasfilm did, however)

I’m aware, I had actually written Lucasfilm Games at first. But since I’m not using a 9-verb interface but a “coin” one LucasArts seemed more fitting.

May I ask why not? When Zak McKracken comes to mind, the verb interface usually goes with it, and I imagine that applies to most of the game’s fans.

No judgements, just curious.

The fan game this is based on (Zak McKracken - Between Time and Space) was originally released with a 9-verb interface back in 2008, in 4:3 aspect ratio. We later released a directors cut updated to 16:9, along with a revised interface. In 4:3 a verb interface at the bottom worked fine, but in 16:9 it just takes up to much vertical space. It was also one of the things the 2008 version got the most flak for.
