[prMac.com] Pisa, Italy - C.I.N.I.C. Games and Adventure Productions, today are proud to announce the up and coming release of The Wardrobe, their new 2D point & click adventure game developed for Mac, PC and Linux. The Wardrobe is inspired by the great 90's classics such as "Monkey Island," "Day of the Tentacle," "Tony Tough" and "Sam & Max: Hit the Road." The game promises a strong sense of humor, but isn't shy about dealing with mature and non-politically correct themes. Waiting feedback on the Greenlight page, the game will be available on Steam and other major distribution platforms for Windows, Mac, and Linux later this year.
You will control the main character, Skinny, from a third-person perspective, moving between locations to solve puzzles found along the way. This happens by interacting with the highlighted elements (hotspots) within the different scenarios. For each hotspot, you can choose from among four types of actions: Look, Pick up, Use, and Talk. All dialogues have multiple choices (and are full of funny answers to try). Skinny will collect a lot of objects during the adventure, which are kept in his inventory. Stored items can be combined with other objects or used directly on hotspots throughout the various locations to solve riddles and proceed with the game. The Wardrobe has more than 40 hand-illustrated and digitally colored locations, populated with 70+ characters and enriched by dozens of puzzles.
It all happened five years ago, during a picnic arranged by Ronald and his best friend Skinny. Things were going well, until Ronald pulled out two very tiny plums from his basket, one for Skinny and one for him. Not knowing about his deadly allergy to plums, Skinny didn't think twice about eating it, and immediately went into anaphylactic shock which caused his sudden death. Ronald ran off, terrified. When he woke up, Skinny discovered that he had become a skeleton and been sentenced to live in Ronald's bedroom wardrobe forever. Since then, Skinny has watched over Ronald constantly, without his knowledge... but now things are going to change! To save his best friend's soul from eternal damnation, Skinny will be forced to reveal himself and make Ronald admit his "crime." Not a simple challenge at all!
