3 Minutes to Midnight point and click comedy adventure on Kickstarter for Linux, Mac and Windows PC. Thanks to developer Scarecrow Studio.The crowdfunding campaign has a $54,947 USD pledge goal. Which is currently 26% funded.

3 Minutes to Midnight is an adventure game coming to life by Scarecrow Studio. With over 15 hours of gameplay. As well as charismatic art, breathtaking environments, and a colorful cast of characters. Each of whom has extensive dialogues and intricate backstories. While keeping you glued to the screen.

Our aim is to release the game on Windows and, shortly after, on Switch, Xbox One, and PS4. There are plans for both Mac and Linux, plus mobile support for Android and iOS, but this is dependent on stretch goals and will take more time.

So this is not really a Kickstarter Stretch Goal but a goal. Since funding means support for Linux. That’s the deal.

    Inspired by such titles as The Secret of Monkey Island, Day of the Tentacle, and Sam & Max Hit the Road. 3 Minutes to Midnight combines the point & click gameplay. Also clever humor with high-def cartoon art. Plus an intuitive interface and a compelling mystery.
  • Two playable characters.
    Play as plucky teenager Betty Anderson and the ambitious. With diplomatic mayor Eliza Barret. Two characters on opposite sides of the spectrum. While you unravel a plot much deeper than one would surmise at first glance.
  • A small town of strangers and secrets, all deeply connected.
    All the characters in the game—as well as the world they live in—have a rich and detailed backstory. With clever and unexpected ties to each other. Scratching the surface won’t be enough to discover more than their apparent identities.
  • Puzzles up the wazoo.

  • Replayability.
    When we say replayability, we’re talking hidden dialogues and events. Characters that you might otherwise never see. Maybe that character you kept hearing about… wasn’t actually real. Or maybe he was and just hid very well.

Hints and Solutions

  • Multiple solutions to some puzzles.
    Most of our big puzzles have been designed in such a way. So that there’s sometimes more than just the obvious solution. You might find an easy way to solve a problem. Or maybe you’ll find a secret in 3 Minutes to Midnight. Unlocking more information about the backstory of our characters.
  • Elaborate hint system.
    Our built-in hint system will highlight important objects and assist during those tense dialogue options. After all, we wouldn’t want you to get lost (or look for a walkthrough online!) So if you have the need, activate this option, or don’t.
  • “That doesn’t seem to work.”—No more!
    “That doesn’t work” is now a thing of the past! No more will you be stuck hearing the same phrase 5000 times in a row, because we made sure to write 5000 lines of unique dialogue specifically for this reason! All of those clever and funny, of course, for you to discover at your leisure.

Now you can be a part of this modern, unique reimagining of a classic genre. Supporting the point and click comedy 3 Minutes to Midnight Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign. Due to release on Linux, Mac and Windows PC if successful.
