New 2D adventure game!

Hi dudes! I noticed a game, Juniper Crescent - The sapphire Claw. You might be interested in this one (same graphic style as Curse of Monkey Island). Check out this picture:

Wow, at the beginning of this week they didn't have the screenshot. When I read the "coming soon" in the screens section I thought to myself, yeah right, probably more like 'coming in two months'.

I have high hopes for this title, but like A Vampyre Story I'm worried that too much attention might be paid to artistical side. They look so great. Then again, Steve Ince worked on on a lot of games in a lot of positions and he comes from Revolution Software.

Add a few swirly clouds and an eypatch on that cat and you'd have the spittin image.


Just because people think what I say don't make sense, doesn't mean I don't like popsicles.

Of course give him two hooks and we're talking lawsuit.

But it does look very nice, I might consider it when it comes out.

anybody knows where you can get a hold of this mighty magnificent game?
geez... I'm posting in 3 years old threads... I feel like an archeologist.
oh well.


it's supposed to smell like a wallmart forcefield generating unit, but we could only do 16 different odors in EGA, so it smells a lot like the timepod!

The company seems to still be working on it. They do have another game on their site that you can get, though.

Judging by their news blog, it looks like work has slowed down to a stand still for that particular game. Oh well.

baaaw what a shame... : (
there are a lot of adventure games that seems to have floated out in limbo.
does anybody know if for example "the city of the metronome" is progressing?
I read that they're just waiting for a releaser, but other than that, is the game developed or what?
