Italian developer Imaginarylab and publisher VLG Publishing announced that their dreamy point-and-click title, Willy Morgan And The Curse Of Bone Town, will be making its way to the Steam store this summer.
The announcement trailer for the game gives you an idea of what the visuals are like, the gameplay mechanics, and the whimsical formation of the world is like, and the general plot of the story.
The game centers around Willy Morgan whose father went missing ten years prior. He receives a mysterious message that leads him to Bone Town where he attempts to find out what happened to his father.
The announcement trailer for the game highlights how players can navigate through the environments as well as some of the strange and interesting characters you’ll meet along the way.
The hook for the game is that it’s designed as a non-linear experience for people who loved the challenge of point-and-click games from the 1990s. In particular, the developers were inspired by the Monkey Island games from back when Tim Schafer used to make good games.
The game will feature 15 different NPCs to interact with, along with 50 locations to visit, plenty of puzzles to complete, and a soundtrack featuring two full hours of original music.
I actually really like the art-style here.
The post-impressionist presentation through what looks like 3D rendered claymation is quite fetching.
Given that most American and Canadian developers are too busy focused on Social Justice and “diversity”, they rarely ever experiment with worthwhile art-styles, but leave it to non-pozzed developers to step outside the box.
As mentioned at the top of the article, Willy Morgan and the The Curse of Bone Town is set to launch this summer on Steam for PC. You can learn more about the game or add it to your wishlist by visiting the Steam store page.
