OhNoo Studios, the developers of Tormentum are introducing a new game called Tsioque.

See the screenshots here.

You can try the demo's here:
Windows: https://dl.orangedox.com/ZxddmeNwQM70kyq0fk/TsioqueDemo.zip
Mac: https://dl.orangedox.com/GZCz8DrGpVxqUw24E5/TsioqueDemo.dmg

Please check out the trailer on the Kickstarter page here.

Quote:
A 100% hand-drawn adventure with a unique atmosphere and a vivid, individual style, by the award-winning animation filmmaker and self-proclaimed genius Alek Wasilewski.

Story with a twist – a clever storyline that may surprise you.

Humor? Check. Darkness? Check. Suspense? Check! What more could you ask for?
LOTS of 2D animation – all characters and items are hand-animated, frame-by-frame, old-school-style.

A living, breathing environment, full of hidden interactions. Did we mention the game would have lots of animation?
No 3D, but on the other hand, no pretentious pseudo-retro pixel art. We love the classics, our nostalgia for pixels is as strong as the next guy's, but we are not taking cheap shortcuts nor purposefully limiting ourselves. We are using the available resources and technology the best we can.

Exceptional soundtrack by Edward Harrison (NEOTOKYO, LUCKY DAY FOREVER) and Elle Kharitou, dynamically illustrating the gameplay and adjusted to your every action.
The protagonist – a little girl with a talent for bringing chaos and destruction wherever she goes. Those who dare stand in her way are in for a lot of trouble...

Beautiful, hand-drawn backgrounds.
Fully voiced dialogue tracks.
Not just for children – a multi-layered tale, created with respect for both younger players and older, more demanding ones, which can be appreciated by everyone on their own level.

You can "die" in this game! - It's an adventure game, so explore, solve puzzles... but beware. You will not always have the comfort of infinite time for solving a problem – sometimes you may need to think fast! Other times, you may want to think twice before choosing a course of action, as the wrong decision may cost you your freedom... or worse!

Non-episodic storytelling – you will find no "Find out what happens next, pay more money!" cliffhangers here. We are not particularly fond of episodic gameplay, so here, you get the complete experience – the story told from start to finish, from the introduction to the grand finale.

A changing, mysterious and dangerous world – even before the Wizard's attack, the castle held many secrets. Now, bound by a powerful spell, the castle has not only become home to demons and magical creatures, but also, itself, has been affected by the evil power... It bends and shapeshifts, forming layers upon layers of transformation and illusion... It is an essential part of the plot and – especially later in the game – is tightly integrated into the gameplay.

The primary source of inspiration was inarguably LIFE, which always writes the best stories. But of course we do not live in cultural vacuum. While developing Tsioque, we couldn’t help but be inspired by the things that amazed and captivated us in our childhood days spent in front of the pale glow of CRT monitors.


This surely included the clever, humorous storyline backed by striking, unique art style in DAY OF THE TENTACLE; the simple gameplay and serious approach to younger players in Ron Gilbert productions such as PAJAMA SAM; the beautiful, dark, dangerous world seen through a young boy’s eyes in HEART OF DARKNESS, ; the wonderfully animated epic fantasy and its gruesome punishments for player’s mistakes in DRAGONS LAIR, or INDIANA JONES AND THE FATE OF ATLANTIS, an old Lucasarts classic with a perfect blend of adventure, humor and action, where carelessness could cost you dearly.



Added update:

Quote:
Classic 2D animation returns in Tsioque
Tsioque (pronounced /tsɪɒk/) is an animated adventure game inspired by classic 80s and 90s point and click titles. Craftily mixing influences of games like Day of the Tentacle, Dragon's Lair or Humongous Games' Pajama Sam, it offers its own, original narrative experience, which can be described as both dark and adorable.

We take the role of a young princess Tsioque, imprisoned in a castle ruled by the Evil Wizard. At first glance, with her blond hair and big blue eyes, she may seem like your typical princess, but she's anything but typical. She doesn't wait for Prince Charming to rescue her - she rescues herself, using her wits, stubbornness, and an unusual talent for bringing unintended chaos and destruction wherever she goes.

From here unfolds a clever story full of unexpected events, some good laughs, and oldschool charm. As the developers assure, "if you think it's just about a girl in a castle - you're in for a surprise".

Owing its look to the lovingly handcrafted classic 2d animation, the game plays like a unique blend between animated cartoon and an adventure title. Tsioque is not just relying on its looks to interest players, however. Aside from vibrant but intuitive level design, possibility of in-game "death" and fully voiced dialogue, the immersion is additionally strengthened by a dynamic soundtrack that keeps up with the player's actions.

Tsioque needs help to escape the castle, and that’s why OhNoo team started a Kickstarter campaign for the game. They’re trying to raise $35,000 before September. Backer rewards include an artbook, plushes of characters from the game, and even the chance to get your likeness in a portrait or statue in-game. You can try out a demo for yourself on the game’s official website.


Happy Gaming!

Hello smile

My name is Lukas Rutkowski (from OhNoo Studio, our previous game was Tormentum), and we have just launched a Kickstarter for a 2d point and click game called TSIOQUE.

More information on Kickstarter page: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ohnoo/tsioque-an-animated-2d-adventure-game

Check the Trailer [url=youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XriHUgWJt6w]here.[/url]

Tsioque is a playfully dark 2d point and click adventure game inspired by such classics as Day of the Tentacle, Dragon's Lair or Ron Gilbert's Pajama Sam series.

http://www.ohnoo.com/images/tsioque/shadows.gif

The protagonist is a little warrior princess named Tsioque, imprisoned in a castle ruled by the Evil Wizard. She's not the kind of princess who waits for Prince Charming to rescue her - she's brave and stubborn, and has an unusual talent for bringing unintended chaos and destruction wherever she goes.

During her escape, Tsiqoue will explore a castle with a mysterious past, which - bound by a powerful spell - has not only become home to demons and magical creatures, but also, itself, has been affected by the evil power... It bends and shapeshifts, forming layers upon layers of transformation and illusion. It is an essential part of the plot and – especially later in the game – is tightly integrated into the gameplay.
