If you love old-school point-and-click adventure games such as “Broken Sword”, “Gabriel Knight”, “Myst” and “Discworld”. Then you probably don´t want to miss out on Cowcat´s adventure game “Demetrios: The big cynical adventure” (for Windows, MAC and Linux). As “Demetrios” is inspired by all those games (and other titles such as “Runaway” and “Hotel Dusk” for example). Anyhow, I actually tried the demo just now (you can play the demo in your browser even), and it´s really good in my opinion (the characters, the humor and the dialogs are top-notch). Speaking of which, “if” you enjoyed the “Demetrios” demo just as much as I did. Then show the game some love on Kickstarter and Steam Greenlight. As Cowcat needs all the help, they can get (the plan would be to collect Euro 2,500, and right now there is 27 days left on the campaign).
As for the background story of “Demetrios”, you play as Bjorn Thonen. An antique seller who one day ended up getting robbed (as Bjorn was really drunk that day). And one thing lead from another, so Bjorn got deeply involved in a mysterious and dark affair. And once Bjorn and his next-door neighbor Sandra start to investigate things closer. They soon discover some ancient secrets. And that´s where you (the player) get into the picture (or should I say, “into the shoes of” Bjorn?). As you will get the pleasure to guide Bjorn through the adventure of his (and maybe your?) life. And by the way, all the visuals are handcrafted in “Demetrios” (HD graphics all the way!). Just so you know. And yes, there will be tons of cynical humor in the game as well (watch the trailer for some in-game examples).
So when will “Demetrios” be released then? Well, if the game gets fully funded on Kickstarter. Then Cowcat aims to release “Demetrios” sometime next year (early 2016). And i´ve been told that “Demetrios” will offer between 8 to 12 hours of gameplay value. In other words, the game should keep you occupied for a while. With that said, I wish Cowcat the best of luck on Kickstarter!
