Well this looks interesting. It would be nice to see what this new engine is like, although many of the features of the game seem "A La Johnathan Boakes" and other games...not really that innovative.
As I was discussing with Ana and others on another thread the economics of adventure games are very poor for developers right now, so we see lots of "Kickstarters" and now games that are released one episode at a time (cognition etc.). I am not crazy about that, but I suppose we have have to endure it!
And yes 20 bucks a pop per episode for reworked Johnathon Boakes is a little......ahem!
