Currently very close to its funding goal on Kickstarter, plans are underway for a PS Vita (and PS4) port of the upcoming point and click adventure Demetrios from French developer Cow Cat Games. Originally developed over a decade ago as a personal project but never released, author Fabrice Breton has revisited his original game and rewritten it from the ground up for a new audience and hopes to create the type of game he always wanted it to be.
Inspired by the classic point and click games like Broken Sword and others like it, Demetrios adds a new spin to the genre with the lead character being notably more cynical in his outlook than you would expect from your typical protagonist. The game puts you in the shoes of Bjorn Thonen, an antique seller who has been robbed one night after coming back home drunk. Doing his own investigation with the help of Sandra, his next-door neighbor, he ends up involved in a mysterious and murky affair. But these two unlikely heroes may be able to surpass themselves and discover ancient secrets!
The game offers a variety of situations and puzzles for gamers of all abilities with contextual levels of interactivity. Set in various locations around the globe and featuring a number of mini games, it’s already being eagerly anticipated by the gaming press. The Kickstarter campaign is set to run until 6th November 2015 and a PS Vita version is planned once the stretch goal of $5,000 is reached. While Cow Cat isn’t currently a registered Sony developer, they’re not expecting this to be a problem.
