I talk about this a lot in my articles, but I’m forever impressed at not just the drive and determination that independent creators show – but also their incredible talent. The two person, husband-and-wife development team known as 2for2 are responsible for the entirety of upcoming 3D point-and-click style adventure Kapia, which is currently seeking funds on Kickstarter.
It looks absolutely beautiful; retired pilot Stefan sets out to end the conflict plaguing his beautifully realised but divided world – and his granddaughter Reny becomes his most powerful ally.
Taking inspiration from the Golden Age of point-and-click games – titles such as Grim Fandango, The Longest Journey and Syberia are cited – Kapia looks set to be an absolutely fabulous tribute to that style of adventure, as well as a wonderful game that can stand proudly alongside those titles in its own right.
Along with the switching of characters – and their respective story perspectives – Kapia features intuitive, easy to learn controls, puzzles and mini-games, and voice acting throughout. The world-building, character design and animation really is impressive to behold – but don’t just take my word for it: you can give the Demo a try straight away here.
There’s a wealth of fantastic reward tiers and stretch goals that 2for2 are hoping to reach; Kapia is planned to release in Q2 2021 for PC via Steam and GOG, with MacOS and Linux versions being considered (along with controller support also potentially on the cards). Switch and other consoles may also follow, but this is dependent on how well the campaign goes – and you can check out and back the Kickstarter campaign at this link.
