April 16, 2018 – Pula, Croatia (EU) – Saint Kotar’s playable demo release and Kickstarter campaign launch have been rescheduled for Spring 2018. As announced back in November, the playable demo release and Kickstarter campaign launch were both scheduled for April 10. It is now with great sadness that we need to announce we were forced to delay the
campaign and, subsequently, the demo for Spring 2018.
Although being a very common and normal thing in game development, our delay isn’t related to the project’s production itself. Instead, it is a consequence of an administrative roadblock related to Kickstarter. We’re very close to solve the last remaining problem, so the release/launch date is not that far away!
The official and final name for the playable demo is Saint Kotar: The Yellow Mask. A playable sneak peek of the demo will be available at the Reboot Develop conference in Dubrovnik, Croatia, from April 19 to April 21. The “sneak peek” means it will be literally just that, as we want to keep the full experience and gameplay reserved for the official release.

About the game:
Saint Kotar is a 2.5D point and click adventure game in development for Windows, Mac, and Linux. The game merges psychological horror narrative and classically inspired point ‘n click adventure mechanics with switchable characters. Hand-painted in a distinctive art style that fits the game’s mood, fully voiced and featuring an eerie original soundtrack, Saint Kotar
draws inspiration from p&c classics like Broken Sword, Gabriel Knight and Black Mirror, along with the works from horror fiction writers such as H.P. Lovecraft and Edgar Allan Poe.
Plot of the game:
Invited to attend an exhibition of rare medieval art, the protagonists travel to Sveti Kotar at the end of October 2006. The welcoming is cold, as they find themselves dragged abruptly into a macabre series of murders, allegedly related to devil worship and witchcraft. These dreadful acts compel the protagonists to follow the shadow of something deeply hidden behind the town’s dark past.
