[prMac.com] Elizabeth, New Jersey - CastleAbra is a hugely ambitious adventure game from first time indie developers Facepuncher Worldwide. It is a traditional first person, point and click exploration game in the style of such classics as Shadowgate and Myst. But sets itself apart with a comedic style that ranges from subtle and sophisticated to zany and broad.
It tells the tale of a lonely, old wizard named Wizardo who is hopelessly in love with the beautiful, young Princess Myrna Loo. Not realizing that he is forever trapped in the "friend zone" he makes a courageous attempt at winning her affection, and is politely declined. Not willing to accept his fate he locks her in his castle with dastardly intentions of winning her over. Your role is to infiltrate the castle, befriend the wizard and work behind his back to rescue your beloved Princess.
While not a hugely original concept, CastleAbra will win you over with its style and execution. We plan to tell a funny story that explores the painful side of human emotions mainly centering on the heartache of unrequited love. One look at our trailer and intro should tell you that we have something beautiful and unique on our hands.
CastleAbra has been in production for the past 18 months. We hope to make a grand, immersive game. Over 75 locations have been hand painted with the hope of having a total of 100. This is in addition to several minutes of lush animation. The game will appear first on Mac and PC and will eventually land on iOS, Android and Windows Phone 7.
About our Kickstarter project:
We launched our Kickstarter project with the hope of receiving the funds necessary for completing the game. We're true independent developers. We've been working on the game for the last 18 months and have a good deal more to do before it's finished. This is a truly ambitious project and we will need support in order for our game to reach its fullest potential. We are offering some cool rewards including custom art by the artist sent directly to you.
