Developed by two people since way back in 2014, Zniw Adventure is a thoroughly charming looking cartoon-styled point and click adventure with a family friendly theme.

ZA is the story of a young female dinosaur, who's on a quest to find the perfect gift for her mother's hatchday. During Zniw's misadventures, the player will visit several places and encounter various Cretaceous creatures along the way. What looks like a classic straight out of the 90s complete with 4:3 aspect ratio cartoon visuals, hand-drawn backgrounds and frame-by-frame animation it really does look inviting if you love old school adventures.

That looks sweet, I guess I'll play it although the children are not yet ready to play with me. :)

The "no bad language" part is interesting - personally I found the main character to be rather rude (at least in the English version, maybe the Polish original is different), always blaming others and insulting them. To be honest I wouldn't let my children play it
Fortunately they provide a demo version, the link can be found in the FAQ document on the bottom of the game's website - I didn't want to paste the random Onedrive link which can't be verified here
