About the game
QuoteStarflint is a Point'n'Click 2D role playing game. The player will always have two possibilities to overcome an enigma, by solving a simple puzzle or following a more difficult path...that will lead them into solving a much more complicated puzzle. And of course the reward will change depending on what path you choose, so if you fancy a challenge then take the difficult route. The puzzles will always be logical, you'll never be faced with anything that can't be solved.

The player is completely free to explore the world of Starflint and its 8 various planets in the order they please, you'll be able to get into a discussion with the characters you meet, this allows you to collect valuable clues and progress, both in the main quest and in the side quests.

Once a planet discovered, the player can develop their business.


Graphically, it looks absolutely fantastic! The demo seems to run perfectly, although it did default to French language but it was easy enough to adjust to English for me. Screenshots and a trailer don't do it enough justice, the visual style really is quite incredible. The space scenes are especially beautiful and the overall design is impeccable.

They are looking to get at least €35,000 on Kickstarter, with funding already at €16,776 with 17 days to go. I hope to see this one funded, since they provide a working demo and it has a pretty decent setting. I'm also a sucker for a good sci-fi adventure!

Absolutely one for point & click and adventure game fans in general to take a serious look at.

The art style reminds me of Broken Sword (1 and 2 more specifically).
May consider backing this.

Looks interesting, does it have voice over or is it just text based game? I like voice-overs as it helps make the characters personalities be more apparent and lively.

"The dialogs will be fully voiced in English! Others will follow"


I'll keep a eye on this one. I do like sci-fi and its been a long time since one of these types of games has done that theme.

It's actually more reminiscent of Deponia for me than Broken Sword, although either inspiration is good. First scene is pure Spaceballs, though.

It ran quite well on my work computer, which is quite something (the fact it runs, not the computer).

I'll gladly get it and play it in the next millennium, after I get through all the other point-and-clicks I already have. ;-)

Does the demo end when you must found other electric wire for fuse box or where blue wire is?
StarFlint 6 June 2017 at 2:42 pm UTC
@debianxfce The demo stop when you open the cryo box. But before you need to finish to resolve the puzzle.
Spoiler, click me
Try to match the blue wire with the purple wire
^.^

The missing wire you will create by opening the wallet and using 2 wires and chewed gum. Press buttons on the fuse box to connect electricity and then pull the switch at the computer desk.

Spoiler, click me
You must find 3 threads A red, a blue and purple. In the inventory, you put the blue and purple together. Fix them with the chewed gum.
After yes press buttons on the fuse box to connect electricity...
