Eselmir and the five magical gifts is a hand-drawn fantasy adventure.

Quote:
Bellinzona, December 20th 2017 --- Stelex Software, a small, independent software company located in Switzerland, is pleased to announce that "Eselmir and the five magical gifts" will be released on Steam on January 12th 2018 simultaneously for both PC and Mac.

Eselmir and the five magical gifts is a 2D point and click adventure game inspired by the old classics of the genre. It tells the story of Eselmir and his journey to find the five magical lost gifts of King Theoson, leading the player to explore an imaginary world studied in every detail. An atypical and elegant fantasy made up of stories within the story, one enclosed in the other.

The concept of the game was inspired and based on texts and drawings of a young talented Swiss writer, Sebastiano B. Brocchi who wrote a charming fantasy saga called "Pirin". The hand made drawings, easily recognizable and with a strong personality, are of the same style used to illustrate the book made by the writer itself.

"Our main goal," says Stefano Maccarinelli, game designer and co-founder of Stelex Software, "was to give to the players a rich, substantial and highly satisfying narrative experience that people don't see often in a videogame, especially in the indie scene. We put a lot of efforts on the Game Design in order to flawless integrate the storytelling smoothly into the gameplay. After years of work by a tiny but passionate 2-person team we are happy with the result. The game offers a very deep, emotional and long story (15+ hours of gameplay) filled with mystery, mysticism and magic in an original blend of fairy tales, inspired by ancient mythology and medieval folklore.".

I like the look of this one. Can't help comparing it to the free game "Five Magical Amulets" (not a bad thing though, that was a nice game.)
