14 MARCH 2019 – Indie developers the Lightfoot Brothers today announce that their upcoming otherworldly adventure game, “The Mystery of Woolley Mountain” will release 10 April 2019.
The Mystery of Woolley Mountain will launch at £9.99 / €10.99 / $12.99 across both the Nintendo eShop and Steam.
The demo gives players an exclusive taste of the strange beasts, evil witches, confused automatons and wacky ropemen that lurk within the eccentric point and click — which was endorsed by none other than legend of the genre Ron Gilbert himself, who pledged toward the game’s successful Kickstarter campaign.
The Mystery of Woolley Mountain is an otherworldly point-and-click adventure, which takes inspiration from the likes of Monkey Island, Day of the Tentacle and The Trap Door.
Join a renegade crew of time travelling audio scientists as you embark on a fantastical quest to save a group of children from a malevolent witch who has taken them captive on the mysterious island of Woolley Mountain.
Lead developer James Lightfoot said:
“Woolley Mountain encapsulates everything about us, everything that we embody and love – humour, art, adventure, music, cartoons, other worlds, camaraderie, puzzles and time travel.”
“We really hope we’ve created a world that you want to exist and play in over and over again.”
The Mystery of Woolley Mountain will release for PC and Mac (via Steam), as well as Nintendo Switch via the Nintendo eShop, on 10th April 2019.
