“Two years ago, me and my girlfriend finished and released Zniw Adventure,” Łukasz Mikołajczyk tells me.
Zniw Adventure, by Mikołajczyk and Karolina Twardosz, is a 2D point ‘n click adventure with dinosaurs, featuring hand-drawn visuals, frame by frame animation and plenty of prehistoric creatures to get to know. It’s based on Twardosz’s comic book project Zid & Zniw Chronicles, which she has been working on since the mid-’90s – and which was later revamped around 2008.
“This time,” Łukasz continues, “instead of spending another six years working in our free time with no budget, we decided to head over to Kickstarter.”
Which is where you’ll find the crowdfunding campaign for the sequel to Zniw Adventure.
Zid Journey is, like its predecessor, another beautifully designed, charmingly animated point and click adventure game, starring a cast of lovable, cartoony dinosaurs.
There’s some lovely visual flourishes to make the action feel just like a comic book come to life: page flips, speech bubbles are just two examples of the techniques being used to achieve this.
There’s a demo available on Steam here, so you can try the game out for yourself.
Having already sailed past the crowdfunding target, Zid Journey’s Kickstarter campaign is already successful – however, with more than a week to go, numerous stretch goals are in place, so there’s plenty left to achieve.
You can check out and back Zid Journey for yourself at the game’s Kickstarter page here.
