With some truly amazing artwork, the classic-styled point & click adventure game Unforeseen Incidents [Official Site] releases May 24th with same-day Linux support.

What would you do if you stumbled into a conspiracy that could wipe out the entire human race? Unforeseen Incidents will have you uncover the secrets behind an epidemic that's spreading across the country.

Unforeseen Incidents is a classical style interactive mystery set in a beautifully hand-painted world. When small-town handyman Harper Pendrell meets a dying woman in the street, he unwittingly stumbles into a diabolical conspiracy – a mystery only he can solve. An unknown disease is spreading across the country, and between them a scientist, a reporter and a reclusive artist hold the key to stopping it. A perilous journey awaits, and every step brings Harper closer to a cabal of dangerous fanatics. Before he knows it, he finds himself in a fight for the future of humankind armed only with his trusty multi-tool. 

The developer told us they were inspired by shows like X-Files and Lost. They also sent along a key to our Steam Curator which sadly downloads nothing right now. I've let them know, so hopefully we can review it properly. Here's the trailer…

I'm looking forward for this! Like the topic and the style, and the co-developer and publisher Application Systems Heidelberg did the same for Nelly Cootalot: The Fowl Fleet as well. (Just seeing it's for 50% at the moment.)

Interesting indeed. However feel bad for the antagonist who skipped leg day, no one ever told him?
