Saint Kotar’s playable demo release is delayed for Linux, Mac and Windows. Since the Kickstarter campaign, the launch is set for Spring 2018.
As announced back in November, the playable demo release and Kickstarter campaign launch were both scheduled for April 10. So now with great sadness that we are have to wait. Since developer Tanais Games are delaying the campaign and the demo.
Although being a very common and normal thing in game development. This delay isn’t of the project’s production itself. Yet instead, it is a consequence of an administrative roadblock in Kickstarter. Fortunately the developers are close to solving the issue. Hence the last remaining problem. So the release/launch date is not that far away.
The official and final name for the playable demo: Saint Kotar: The Yellow Mask. This playable sneak peek of the demo will be available at the Reboot Develop conference. Which is taking place in Dubrovnik, Croatia, from April 19 to April 21.
This “sneak peek” means it will be literally just that. As Tanais Games also want to keep the full experience. And gameplay for the official release.
Saint Kotar – The Yellow Mask teaser (Linux, Mac, Windows)
Saint Kotar is a 2.5D point and click adventure game in development for Linux, Mac, and Windows. The game merges psychological horror narrative and classically inspired point and click adventure mechanics with switchable characters. Hand-painted in a distinctive art style that fits the game’s mood, fully voiced and featuring an eerie original soundtrack, Saint Kotar draws inspiration from p&c classics like Broken Sword, Gabriel Knight and Black Mirror, along with the works from horror fiction writers such as H.P.Lovecraft and Edgar Allan Poe.
Plot of the game:
Invited to attend an exhibition of rare medieval art, the protagonists travel to Sveti Kotar at the end of October 2006. The welcoming is cold, as they find themselves dragged abruptly into a macabre series of murders, allegedly related to devil worship and witchcraft. These dreadful acts compel the protagonists to follow the shadow of something deeply hidden behind the town’s dark past.
