A dog and a monkey venturing through the far reaches of space find themselves exploring various planets and attempting to uncover the mysteries surrounding a space anomaly is the core plot behind Tales of Cosmos. It’s a new point-and-click adventure game from indie studio Red Dwarf Games.
The developers recently announced that the side-scrolling title featuring the two space-faring animals, Perseus and Gagayev, has arrived on Steam and Mac recently and is currently available for $14.99.
The game features players going from one planet to the next, finding clues, solving puzzles and attempting to interact with the circular environments in order to further their mission and uncover the truth behind some odd occurrences. The game has kind of a dark vibe to it, which is highlighted in the gameplay trailer that you can check out below.
According to the developers, they wanted to offer gamers something that was akin to what you might find from the point-and-click games of old, such as Day of the Tentacle and Gobliiins. However, one of the neat things about Tales of Cosmos is that it’s not just about walking around, solving puzzles and gathering clues and items. There’s a flying component to the game as well, with players being able to direct the flight of the animal companions in their quest across space.
This adds an extra element of intrigue to the gameplay as the additional layer of mechanics opens up deeper engagement.
There’s support for up to nine different languages, ranging from English to Russian and many other forms of communication attached to various letter in between.
According to the press release there are numerous planets and moons to explore, with hand-drawn backdrops making up for the different locations you’ll be visiting and modding tools so you can create or extend the adventure in any way that you please.
