Beyond The Edge Of Owlsgard is a very promising upcoming point and click adventure game, with a Linux demo available.

Developed by German-based WatchDaToast, it started off as a passion project that they've ended spending four years crafting into an adventure inspired by LucasArts and Sierra point & click classics. They said part of their plan for it is to return the genre to the "adventure" aspect, so it places some emphasis on exploring as well as inventory-based puzzles. Check out the trailer:

Features Planned:

  • An immersive story told through hand-drawn landscapes and countless animations!
  • A return to the “adventure” aspect of the genre – a big focus on exploring whimsical places, uncovering secrets, and dealing with tense and dangerous situations
  • Cinematic cutscenes, reminiscent of hand-drawn animated movies, mixed with a pixel art aesthetic
  • Atmospheric soundtrack, inspired by the old midi classics everyone knows and loves
  • 6-8 hours of gameplay

It's currently crowdfunding on Kickstarter, with the goal already having been met. So it's been added to our Crowdfunding Tracker Page. There's also a demo on itch.io and Steam.

Point and Click Adventures trigger a very special place in my brain. It's just so different from playing any other kind of game. Am hardly kickstarting, but this time I might....
Anthropomorphic animals, point and click, sounds good to me!
