Warbirds Games announced a new Kickstarter campaign for a new Sci-Fi Pulp-Fiction point and click adventure game.

You can check out the Kickstarter page here.

You can check out developers website here.


Quote:
Jack Houston and the Necronauts is a pulp sci-fi inspired adventure game where you portray Captain Jack Houston on his deadliest mission: to man the first rocket to explore a savage, alien world!

Jack’s adventure takes place not far from home, on our neighboring planet of Venus. But this isn’t the lifeless planet we know today, this Venus is a sweltering vine jungle teaming with strange beasts of horn, tooth and claw. This is the Venus imagined by science fiction authors and artists in the first half of the century, the legacies of whom include John Carter of Mars, Carson of Venus, Buck Rogers, Flash Gordon, Tom Corbett: Space Cadet and many more.

the vile jungle beasts and devious plant life of Venus fail to overcome our hero, the rulers of this savage world will surely give Jack a run for his money. These strange entities are able to inhabit the remains of any creature after death, fortifying and building upon their skeletal structures until they are virtually indestructible war machines with the superior intellect of a god. With the tribal inhabitants of the entire planet under their crushing heel, the undead Venusian warlords threaten to pulverize Jack like an ant. But our clever test pilot will uncover a shocking revelation about the origin of these “Necronauts,” a connection between the creatures and himself that could be their undoing… and his.



Happy Gaming!

Thanks Sheriff

Of course you have my attention with Sci-Fi and reading further its point & click. They also have me at using stop motion like the old Ray Harryhausen movies. I don't know if this will work with a computer adventure but I am sure interested. The Kickstarter goal isn't for very much so I am not sure if this technique can be done and have the game of a decent length but for $15 it may be worth the chance. Very ambitious.

Here is an excerpt from their web site...

Quote:
The Technique: At Warbird Games, we’ve decided the best way to re-create the feel of starring in a 50′s sci-fi movie, is to actually re-create the original hollywood techniques. For Jack Houston and the Necronauts, we are preparing to build each scene in miniature, and animate every character using stop motion. The end result will emulate the feel of exploring a Ray Harryhausen creature feature through a point and click adventure interface.

The screenshots remind me a little of the Perry Rhodan game.
