Several comic book characters have successfully made the jump from paper to their own videogames, and the next two on the list could be Sandra and Woo, the titular web comic protagonists in the upcoming Sandra and Woo in the Cursed Adventure.
Sandra is a 12-year-old American girl who lives a very normal life in suburbia – other than having a mischievous talking pet raccoon named Woo, that is. One day that all changes, however, when the pair are sucked into a cursed adventure game by a strange computer virus. In this virtual world where "dragons circle the skies above, [and] a castle is under siege", Sandra and Woo must "go on an epic quest to seek a way back home". Along the way, they'll encounter "fantastic and bizarre characters, all of whom have their own agendas, wants and desires. Sandra and Woo will soon find out who exactly is friend or foe. Nothing is as it should be and even less is what it seems. And in the far distance a shadow, rising on the horizon, is threatening to swallow them all."
Created by Ute Knörzer and Stefan Müller, Sandra and Woo have beens starring in their own web comic since 2010. In making the transition to interactive adventure, German-based indie developers Feline Fuelled Games promise a game with "at least" ten hours of play time filled with "tricky puzzles" to solve. As seen in the early screenshots and trailer, the game will be fully voiced with a hand-drawn HD art style based on the original comic, while the gameplay will be fashioned after traditional adventures like the Monkey Island and Deponia series.
There is no firm release date available yet, but the game has been in development for over three years now and is nearing completion. If all goes according to plan, we should be seeing Sandra and Woo in the Cursed Adventure on PCs before the end of this year.
