Dros dark fairytale adventure game now seeks funding on Kickstarter for Linux, Mac, and Windows PC. All due to the creativity of developed emergeWorlds. Which seeking support in the Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign.

emergeWorlds a small indie studio out of Brisbane Australia is crafting a loveable story and characters. Taking you back to classic games of the Monkey Island series and Zelda Link’s Awakening. Due to raising AU$ 44,000 ($32,544 USD) by December 3rd, 2021. And currently, already 25% successful in funding, at the time of writing.

Play as Captain and his slimy sidekick Little Dros. Doing so as they grudgingly work together to solve mind bending puzzles. On top of that, they will also battle creepy enemies and make their way to the top of the Machine.

Dros – Kickstarter Trailer

Along with the Kickstarter campaign, Dros offers a new demo on Steam (Windows PC). I did test the Demo and it certainly runs well via Proton on Linux. On top of that, the game even supports my default game controller (PS4), without any config. The Demo itself is also quite charming including a camera rotation. Plus it’s free, so give it a try.

  • Inspiration
    Dros is inspired by classic fantasy films of the 80’s & 90’s. Due to titles like Labyrinth, Willow and The Dark Crystal. Combined with quirky characters, puzzles and action. Seen in games like The Secret of Monkey Island and Zelda – Links Awakening.
  • Heartfelt Story
    Dros is a story driven 3D, puzzle platformer with dual character mechanics.
    It’s a heartfelt and whacky story about the tests of getting along. Captain and Little Dros will learn how to overcome their diversity by working together.
  • Delicately Hand Crafted Art
    The game is a careful creation of every detail to build an amazing world for Dros. Taking great pride in art, design, and results in quality. Dros features a deep story and characters. Along with an emphasis on puzzle solving, platforming, and action.


  • Dual Character Play – Switch between Captain and Little Dros and use their unique abilities to make their way through the Machine.
  • Story Driven Gameplay – A loveable story about two unlikely heroes stuck with each other.
  • Puzzles and Action – Fight enemies and solve tricky puzzles. These will also play off both characters’ strengths and weaknesses.

Dros dark fairytale adventure game is starting off strong. The Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign is certainly worth checking out as is the free Demo. The full game is due to release on Linux, Mac, and Windows PC.
