DreamFever, a one man indie studio is launching its first full title for the PC and Mac, Jason The Greek: The Ladies of Lemnos with the demo available for the PC now! JTG is a blend of the personalities of one of sci-fi’s most loved series into one of the greatest journeys ever told: The Quest for the Golden Fleece. JTG: The Ladies of Lemnos is chapter one in this journey, with the crew heading to the isle said to be 100% women. Playing as Jason, it will be up to you to charm the princess, solve puzzles and unravel mysteries as you search for clues as to the whereabouts of the Golden Fleece and your next course heading.

Escaping from the princesses room before she wakes and rounding up your crew before anyone knows your gone… that’s all part of the fun!

Download and play the demo today for PC: http://jasonthegreek.com/DEMO/JTG.zip

Check out the pointing and the clicking here: http://www.youtube.com/user/JasonTGreek

“JTG is going to be the first in a possible set of three titles spanning Jason and his crew of Argonauts’ journey across the mythological world of Ancient Greece in their Quest to find the Golden Fleece. It’s an eccentric take on the theme that hasn’t been seen before in popular culture, blending two of the most famous crews in legend – Enterprise meets Argo.” Kris Fosh, the artist and writer behind Jason The Greek. “I want to thank the people who have looked at the artwork and played the demo for all the generous feedback I’ve received on forums and on the main site, all of which has helped to shape the quest so far – you’re all part of the crew!”

“In the first chapter I want to set a theme for the quest, a level of humour, puns and character style to create a franchise for the other parts to follow. I’ve loved Jason’s story since I first watched the Ray Harryhausen movies back in the day and blending that with my love of Sci-fi spoofery is just too good an idea to not to try!”

The story plays out with Jason washed up on the shore of a deserted island on his way to Lemnos after he is knocked by a freak wave from the prow of the Argo. Players will take up his story by helping him find a way off of the island by solving puzzles, finding and combining random items in order to achieve new goals and, well… assaulting a Paddlecrab. If you’ve visited Monkey Islands or Hit the Road while wearing your Leisure Suit then this could be the game for you.

Key features for JTG include:

A new take on a classic legend fusing the personalities of the futuristic crew in the Captain Jason, logical first mate Orpheus, drummer Philoctetes aka ‘Irish’ (giving it all he’s got) and the doctor Peleus who’s more interested in bones – dammit – to name but a few. Starting on a spartan, deserted beach the game takes you to Lemnos, a land of women where you must point, click, steal and charm your way out of its borders taking with you your crew or as much as is possible as the many red skirts of your crew litter the streets offering you hints with their final breath after a succession of unusual and often grisly deaths…

Explore a unique take on the classic Greek Myth in its own cartoon style!

Interact with characters, objects, items and crabs!

Solve mysteries and uncover a dark secret (oooo)!

Romance a princess!

Escape from a princesses bedroom before she wakes up.

And basically steal any item that isn’t nailed to the floor…

Ready to join the crew? Head over to the site and download the demo of Jason The Greek: The Ladies of Lemnos today: www.jasonthegreek.com


Happy Gaming!

Hi Ana,
I downloaded the latest demo version that's on this thread, installed it, and still NOTHING. Can't get it to "work". I e-mailed KRIS about this and I'm sure he will get back to me soon.

For those who are still not sure if Jason is worth backing, I met Kris, the guy behind the game on AdventureX in London and had the chance to look into the game. Not only that, I also had the chance to have a lot of laughs and an interview with him. You can watch it here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D6K71pNB7cc#t=32

The campaign is running for nearly another 3 days, so if you want to see this coming, you should definitely check out now and pledge or at least share it.
