Making use of public domain renaissance artwork, The Frogs is an upcoming comedy point and click adventure. A demo is available and now they're on Kickstarter. Very similar in style to what was done with The Procession to Calvary (different developer), and actually inspired by it. More of this sounds great because it's such a unique way to make a game.

"Join Dionysus, the Greek god of wine, ecstasy, and (most importantly) theater on a journey to Athens and subsequently the underworld in a comedic romp that pays homage to Aristophanes and his brilliant work, The Frogs! Over 15 hours of snark, satire and absurdity await as Dionysus must solve puzzles, convince people that he is a fun drunk and not just annoying, and find a replacement for the horrible poets and playwrights that are plaguing his festivals."

I didn't find the demo interesting if I remember correctly.
The Procession to Calvary was quite a good point and click.
I admit I like Stephen Sondheim's musical adaption of The Frogs. I'm putting this game on my wishlist, though I don't do Kickstarters for video games.
