StarFlint: The Blackhole Prophecy is a new adventure point-and-click comedy game in development by Stunmason Games. The independent developers have recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to get their game funded, asking for $38,000 to bring the title to life. With 43 days to go as of the writing of this article, they’ve already managed to accrue $5,266 of their total goal.
The game puts players in the role of Flint and Trixie, a young smuggler and a sexy secret agent exploring a galaxy rife with oddities, aliens, mega-corporations and villains galore. The game is designed as a classic hand-drawn title with high-quality artwork and appealing looking character designs.
The artistic motivation comes from classic LucasArts and Sierra Interactive titles from the golden days of PC gaming.
You can see what StarFlint looks like in action with the pitch video below.
The game definitely knows its audience. In one of the sequences in the video Flint asks the ship’s computer, Artemis, if she has a nude mod… because why not?
At least they aren’t afraid to poke fun at some pretty obvious stereotypes. The only thing that would have been more hilarious is if Artemis said that the nude mod was available but couldn’t be installed due to DRM.
Anyway, the game is not an episodic title. They won’t be pulling a Double Fine Productions here, they have plans on releasing the full game for a standard price.
They also mention that this isn’t a game for the little kiddies. If the nude mod conversation didn’t give it away they explain…
“Complex relationships will be explored with themes of family, loss, and identity influenced by horror with blood contents, sci-fi, and mystery genres. StarFlint is an adult-themed video game. The player can make choices that will lead him to see some mature scenes.”
They plan on rolling out StarFlint: The Blackhole Prophecy on PC, Mac and Linux first and then follow it up with a release on Xbox One.
