By - | Views: 12,352

Love your quirky little action-adventures? Scrabdackle should be something for you to take a look at and there's a big update to the demo for you to try.

What is it? Scrabdackle is a hand-drawn action/adventure game about going exploring, with non-linear progression and a unique mix of skill-based challenge and accessible gameplay. It features a vast, intricate overworld, tight and responsive combat, cheeky banter, and pages of lore to discover – all under a coat of playful charm. Funded on Kickstarter, the full release is due out in 2023 sometime.

It looks good in a way that the crude, 1970's-cartoon style graphics don't do justice to. For the same reason, stills of this game look awful, but the video suggests an absolute gem of a game. I think I'll stick this on my wishlist, after seeing it in motion.
