South African born Indie-adventure STASIS – headed by Johannesburg-based developer Christopher Bischoff and his two colleagues from The Brotherhood – is nearing the end of its 33 day Kickstarter campaign.
At the time of writing there are 4 days left on the clock, and $98,579 (±R1,014,619) has been pledged toward the $100,000 goal by 3,203 backers.
So, if you were on the fence about pledging to this project, then maybe now is the time to give the local guys the boost they need.
STASIS is a 2D isometric, point-and-click adventure game for Windows PC, set in the distant future on a desolate spacecraft. Protagonist John Maracheck must solve puzzles to save his family, while uncovering horrific experiments, illicit research, and an ever-deepening mystery.
“Recently there has been an exciting resurgence of the point-and-click adventure genre. Standing on the shoulders of greatness, STASIS follows the game-play mechanics of classics like Space Quest, Kings Quest, the Monkey Island series, The Dig and Day of the Tentacle,” the team writes on the Kickstarter page.
Legendary game composer Mark Morgan has joined the team to create the music. Morgan is renowned for his immersive soundtracks on games such as Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout 3: New Vegas, Planescape: Torment, and the upcoming Wasteland 2 and Torment: Tides of Numenera.
“At my first glimpse of STASIS, I was completely blown away by its Deep Beauty. This is destined to be epic.” said Morgan.
