August 11 2014 – Madrid, Spain/… Risin’ Goat, an indie games studio based in Spain, has released a playable alpha demo of A Rite From The Stars, its 3D point ‘n click adventure game. Inspired by classics like Broken Sword and Day of the Tentacle as well as genre contemporaries such as Machinarium and The Cave, A Rite From The Stars is currently in development for PC, Mac, Linux, Ouya and Wii U during February 2015.

Travel to the Mystical Island of Kaikala and help Kirm, a mute boy from the Makoa Tribe, leave his childhood behind and complete the tribe’s rite of passage. Kirm’s ritual will not be ordinary or easy, as he has been chosen by the stars to take on a legendary mantle among his tribe. To do so, Kirm will need to master the three following disciplines and one final trial before he can be considered a legend:

Wisdom: His mind must be sharp to go through an Ancient Temple full of traps.

Courage: His will must be strong to unleash his Power Animal and survive.

Spirit: His soul must be ready to embrace the Spirit World.

Risin’ Goat recently launched a Kickstarter campaign for A Rite From The Stars to help fund the final development of the game. The developer is offering early bird copies of the game from $10, with all backers from that tier and above promised a star and personalized quote within the final game’s constellations.
