August 29 2014 – Madrid, Spain/… Risin’ Goat has released a new gameplay trailer for its 3D point ‘n click adventure game, A Rite From The Stars, coming to PC, Mac, Linux, Ouya and Wii U during February 2015. The trailer reveals the challenges that await Kirm, a mute boy from the Makoa Tribe, who has to leave his childhood behind by undergoing a rite of passage on the Mystical Island of Kaikala.

Along the way, Kirm will clash with the lava giant Pohaku, explore the deep cave where The Beast lurks, and encounter spectral Makoa who failed their own rites of passage and now wander the Temple creating riddles to trap the unwary.

Inspired by classics like Broken Sword and Day of the Tentacle as well as genre contemporaries such as Machinarium and The Cave, the game features three different paths to complete with unique mechanics, performance based achievements, and multiple endings. A Rite From The Stars doesn’t feature point ‘n click clichés like pixel hunts, pointless walks or boring inventory management (also known as “using the stick in everything until it works).

Risin’ Goat recently launched a Kickstarter campaign for A Rite From The Stars to help fund the final development of the game. For further information, check out the Kickstarter page:

The alpha demo for A Rite From The Stars is now available to download for PC, Mac and Linux from:

·       WINDOWS 64 bit version

·       WINDOWS 32 bit version

·       MAC OSX version

·       Ubuntu LINUX version

A Rite From The Stars is scheduled for release during February 2015 for PC, Mac, Linux, Ouya and Wii U.
