Deep Silver FISHLABS has just announced that they will be publishing a mobile version of OKAM Studio’s graphic adventure The Interactive Adventures of Dog Mendonça & PizzaBoy next month.
Funded through a successful Kickstarter campaign back in November 2014, this richly illustrated classic style point and click adventure game “with a gruesomely-good twist” is based on Dark Horse’s popular comic books series of the same name.
Before receiving this press release I wasn’t familiar with the source material, but I’m certainly interested now!
Dark Horse describes the first TPB in the series with the following blurb:
What do an overweight Portuguese werewolf, a seven-year-old girl who’s actually a six thousand-year-old demon, and a downtrodden pizza boy have in common? In this smash-hit import, the unlikely team bands together to ward off occult evils, Nazis, and impending global doom!
* Werewolves! Demons! Mad scientists! Pizza!
I don’t know about you, but that sounds pretty freakin’ awesome to me!
According to Deep Silver FISHLABS, the game will feature some “hilarious dialog, fun-to-solve riddles, and a gripping narrative.
Deep Silver FISHLABS and OKAM Studios both have some previous experience in this genre with the former publishing the engaging iOS port of Lost Horizon and the latter developing the iOS release of Deponia.
The game will be a premium app where you pay once and get “full access to all content and features as well as the complete story, which is not split up into fee-based chapters”. No pricing has been announced yet, but I’d guess somewhere in the vicinity of $9.99 to $12.99. The PC version debuted at a price of $17.99 with a regular price of $19.99. Lost Horizon debuted on iOS at $5.99 (PC at $9.99) and Deponia launched on iOS at a price of $9.99 (w/ PC at a price of $19.99).
