PRIM announced for 2019
The dead cat's out of the bag! We're making PRIM, a creepy-but-cute 2D Point & Click Adventure Game and a first demo is supposed to be released in 2019.
The adventure game genre is dead?! No problem – everybody in this game is dead as well! The German indie game developer CMMN CLRS (pronounced: Common Colors) announces a creepy-but-cute 2D-Point’n’Click adventure game in which you play as Prim, Death’s daughter, on her journey through the Land of the Dead. This unique story idea is supported by black-and-white, Tim Burtony visuals.
Over the ages, he's been called by many names: Thanatos, the Grim Reaper, the Pale Rider, the Angel of Death… Who would have guessed that the most frightening of them all - at least to him - would be "Dad"? Every night, Death’s teenage daughter Prim has the same dream: An oddly familiar human boy cries out for her help. Needless to say that our heroine tries to answer the call. There’s just one tiny problem: The Grim Reaper has strictly forbidden her to enter the Realm of the Living – she’s not ready for the immense power she’d develop there, he claims. Unfortunately, when Prim finds a way to trick her father and travel to Earth, it painfully turns out that Thanatos’s presentiments have been right all along…
Play as Death’s daughter and switch between the Land of the Dead and the Realm of the Living, solve puzzles, meet restless souls and finally uncover a carefully-hidden secret…
Being a modern contribution to the genre on the outside, but a classical adventure game at heart, PRIM combines beautifully hand-drawn, full HD backgrounds and characters à la “Deponia” with the challenging puzzles and self-reflective humor found in classics like “Monkey Island”. Likewise, a complex and gripping narrative goes hand in hand with a simple one-click interface. On top of it all lies an epic, orchestral soundtrack supported by professional voice acting. What makes the game stand out, at least in our humble opinion, is the distinctive art style developed by our lead artist, Mexican comic artist Oskar Alvarado, an expert for the dark and macabre.
We’ve just released a first announcement teaser on YouTube and our website. The game is currently in development and a first demo will see the light of day (ehm, we mean "night", of course!) in mid-2019.
And, of course, we're making it with VISIONAIRE STUDIO
We'd love to read in the comments what you think about it!
