For anyone of you who missed the post
of our friend Neon, announcing this new game which looks quite unusual and very interesting:
Vsevolod is a traditional 2D point-and-click adventure in the vein of the most well known classics of the genre, completely drawn by hand (background art, as well as character animation). The gameplay, as in other similar games, revolves around solving various inventory based and mechanical puzzles, dialogues, using spells in form of short musical phrases to interact with the game world, as well as using some more exotic abilities we are just now about to implement.
Vsevolod takes place in an alternate world somewhat similar to this Earth's XIX century, where the delicate peace enjoyed by the peoples of Germania and Greater Slavic Empire is threatened by the blood-thirsty hordes of the Republic of Britannia. This world never knew Christianity, so the colorful paganism of Slavic and Germanic peoples is, at least in this game, very much alive and well.
As the sluggish airships carry Germanian and Slavic archaeologists back to their respective homelands embroiled in a war with the island republic of Britannia, young nobleman by the name of Vsevolod Nikolaevich Peremishlov stays behind in desire of ending his decade long pursuit for the fabled artifacts of Lord Svarog the Creator himself, which are rumored to be hidden deep within the vaults of an ancient Slavic svarostan situated on the Obzorye island, on the outskirts of the Arctic circle. However, obtaining the mystical objects will only set in motion a chain of events that will eventually lead to the unmaking of the material reality.
SVARUN Studios is a small international indie team dedicated to producing quality adventure games similar in style to the classics of the genre.
