Four Last Things: a point-and-click renaissance masterpiece

  • #1, by JoemcrSunday, 10. July 2016, 16:35 4 years ago
    Hello chaps!

    Lots has been happening with my current project, Four Last Things so I thought I'd share some info;

    Four Last Things is a point-and-click adventure game made from Renaissance-era paintings and public domain recordings of classical music. It is about sin, and the Four Last Things – Death, Judgement, Heaven and Hell – and strives to be intelligent and ridiculous in equal measures.

    Think Monkey Island meets Monty Python meets Hieronymus Bosch.


    I made a prototype of Four Last Things for the Game Jolt Adventure Jam. It was voted Best Game Overall in the public vote and was awarded Judges Pick by Patrick Ewing of Campo Santo!

    You can play the prototype HERE

    I'm now running a Kickstarter project to help me turn this prototype into a larger, more polished game.

    You can see the Kickstarter project page HERE

    I've also put Four Last Things up on Steam Greenlight, HERE

    Any support you guys could give me would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks,

    Joe

    Already voted & shared mate. Unfortunately I have no way of backing on kickstarter as I lack a credit/visa card. All I have is paypal & my funds are somewhat depleted at the minute.

    In regards to the comp voting... I looked over the awards & voting results the other day & they didn't make much sense to me when you compare them to the games that came in first, second & third.

    Thanks Lee!

    Yep, it is a bit annoying that Kickstarter doesn't accept paypal but you have supported me plenty already! smile

    And yeah, the voting/awards structure was kinda weird...

    Good luck with kickstarter. Like afrlme i don't have any credit card to support on kickstarter directly but i will post it on my twitterpage to spread the word smile

    Im very impressed alone from the idea to use old paintings and mix them to a very cool and crazy world which doesn't take itself too seriously.

    Hope this get funded

    Congrats. smile

    Kickstarter campaign seems to be coming along as well, albeit somewhat slowly, but it's a ridiculously low base goal so I don't see why you shouldn't reach it or beyond over the next 14 days.

    There's just one week left to support Four Last Things on Kickstarter. It's currently ~80% funded, so we need YOUR HELP to get over the line!
