Manzasun, July 17, 2019 - 2finger and Daring Touch are happy to present to adventure game lovers MADievals, a new point&click which promises to rewrite the conventions of the genre. Whether in a good or bad way we still don't know, but we're sure that no one will remain indifferent in the face of the bold and unstoppable Rusty.  

Immerse yourself in the comedy and grotesque atmospheres of MADievals!

A completely 3D point&click adventure like you haven’t seen for a long time, perfect for the whole family!

A fearless knight named Rusty Steelknee, hunter of precious relics, arrives in the Realm of Manzasun. Nothing is known about him, apart from the fact that he’s never separated from his helm, his horse Spoffy or his cast iron drawers, and that his purpose is to take possession of the Idol Lamp, kept inside the Ascension Temple.

The realm, though, has been afflicted by a curse, the CuPeNEver, and surrounded by a terrible eternal darkness. Very soon, Rusty – due to both his proud temper and a series of not exactly accidental coincidences – will become involved in something much bigger than him.

But Rusty will know how to tackle the adventure head-on, and with his self-deprecating sarcasm he will be able to disentangle himself from extraordinary situations!

  • Fascinating and mysterious story, full of absurd and zany scenarios.
  • Funny dialogues with lots of bizarre characters.
  • Unusual puzzles but with their own logic.
  • Ability to switch to 2D pixel art as many like nowadays, provocative women to conquer and a final prize of a million golden doubloons to win! (Okay, these last ones are not true, but the game is really funny, promise!)

Released in an Early Access version, we really believe that the dialogue between creators and players is fundamental to the process of producing an adventure game worthy of such a name. That’s why we decided to open the doors of our own realm to whoever is willing to give us feedback about the state of the game and help us decide how to proceed with its development.

The Early Access version of MADievals allows players to complete the first chapter. The game will stay in this phase until Rusty finds enough courage to become a real knight. Realistically his adventure will benefit from regular updates, with a new chapter to play every quarter for the next 12 months. Yes, we could tell you ‘a year’ but that just wouldn’t be as epic.

For the bravest knights of the press, there are Keys to the realm available to check out the game available now.
