Due for release in the 2nd quarter of 2021, Crowalt: Traces of the Lost Colony is a point and click adventure that taps into the classic spirit of LucasArts titles from the 80s and 90s. It has all of the elements you’d expect: charming pixel art, wonderful animation, a humourous script and pirates. Lots of pirates.
The story sees young adventurer Hugh Radcliff setting off to solve the 150 year old mystery of the first settlers who sought to establish a colony in America in 1587 – only to disappear, leaving only an island name carved into a tree: Crowalt.
Along the way you’ll collect and combine items to solve puzzles, deal with pirates, find yourself faced with native rituals and reveal the truth behind conspiracies. Though the game has one foot in the past, more modern game design elements are present, such as branching dialogue and consequences to your actions that can change the course of events.
It’s available to wishlist on Steam now and the developers – Madcraft Studios – will be livestreaming gameplay today – 7th October 2020 – at 2pm PST.
You can check out the game’s trailer below.
