Turin, Italy – February 1st 2018 – MixedBag and Adventure Productions, two independent publishing and distribution companies operating in Italy, announce today that they have reached an agreement to bring new point and click adventure games on PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch console later this year.
After the console success of Ron Gilbert’s Thimbleweed Park and of remastered editions of the biggest LucasArts classics, the idea of bringing new point & click adventure games on Sony and Nintendo consoles represents a challenge that the two publishers have decided to tackle with enthusiasm.
The first two titles to be released on consoles as part of the agreement between MixedBag and Adventure Productions are The Wardrobe and Detective Gallo.
The Wardrobe, developed by C.I.N.I.C. Games and released on Steam in February 2017, tells the deeds of the cynical Skinny, a skeleton committed to saving the soul of his best friend in a world populated by surreal characters and tons of pop culture references from the ’90s and 2000s.
Detective Gallo, developed by Footprints and scheduled for release this Spring, narrates the investigations of the feathered private investigator Gallo and his silent assistant cactus, dealing with a bloody case of multiple plant homicide.
“I’ve always been a big fan of point and click adventures, and the idea of working with Adventure Productions to bring two of the best italian adventure games on Sony and Nintendo platforms is really exciting for us.”, said Mauro Fanelli, founder and CEO of MixedBag.
“We have always believed in the potential point & click adventure games on console and we look forward to offering this new opportunity to the many adventure games fans, thanks to the collaboration with MixedBag”, said Carlo de Caesaris, CEO of Adventure Productions.
Release dates for The Wardrobe and Detective Gallo for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch will be announced later. Both games will also fully support as additional control system the touch screen on Nintendo Switch and the DualShock 4 Touchpad.
