Powers in the Basement (PitB for short) is a 5/6 hours long point-and-click adventure game, deliberately reminiscent of the great classics from the 80s / 90s, with a specific sweet spot for LucasArts production.
It's a witty and sometimes surreal game, with clean humor, also suitable for children, set in a pseudo-fantasy world in which the medieval fairytale is punctuated by anachronisms, elements of modernity and absurd references to nerd pop culture.
You will meet funny characters, face bizzare situations, solve challenging puzzles, and enjoy some hopefully rewarding wild goose chases.
