“We want to tell a story of strife. But also one that shows that there is always hope. Eeven in the darkest of times,” said Falko von Falkner, founder of ID22. “In order to do so, it is vital to give the player as much agency as possible. Choices and consequences in the context of point and click adventures. Which are only very rarely explored.”

“Through the eyes of Eevi. Wwe will look at a world in which multinational corporations. And tech giants that have free reign over our lives. And we will let the player make their own decisions. Wwithin the story we are trying to tell,” Falko continued. “Violence vs pacifism, subterfuge vs honesty, thought vs instinct. We will explore all those themes. But we will also stay true to the roots of point and click adventures. Things will always have a bit of a humorous undertone.”

Born Punk will also feature hallmarks of the point and click adventure genre. The player will spend a lot of their time trying to solve puzzle. This are also logical and perception-based puzzles. Where players combine items or use. Also affecting the game world and driving the story forward.
A lot of attention is put on ensuring a pattern. So that the puzzles follow a comprehensive manner. When there is no puzzle available, this means interaction with the characters. So the game’s wacky will push the narrative forward. Since Eevi will meet personalities like 8-bit rapping android nerds. Also bartenders who replace their natural hands with cocktail glasses.

The Kickstarter will not be live until February 5th. But you can download the demo from now for Linux, Mac, Windows.
