Investigate the Unusual Findings demo before it hits Kickstarter
Old-school point-and-click adventuring with a nostalgic 80s vibe. Coming to PC 2021 and Kickstarting ports for all consoles soon
Moscow, September 23rd, 2021 – Buka Entertainment invites players to party like it’s 1987, and dive into the demo for Unusual Findings, the upcoming point-and-click adventure from indie studio Epic Llama. Join a trio of teenagers – Vinny, Nick and Tony – on a journey into mystery and danger, 8-bit gaming, alien conspiracies and VHS rental stores.
Try the Unusual Findings demo today on Steam, wishlist the game and check out the Kickstarter here when it launches on Tuesday, October 5th. While nearing the end of development for PC, Epic Llama aims to use Kickstarter funding to bring Unusual Findings to other platforms, including Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series S/X and PlayStation 4/5. Additional stretch goals will allow them to expand the scope of the game across all systems, including new scenes, mini-games and more.
Wearing its influences on its sleeve, Unusual Findings channels the spirit of classic teen adventure movies like The Goonies, Monster Squad and The Lost Boys and pairs them with the gameplay of classic adventure games such as Maniac Mansion and Day Of The Tentacle. The ordinary lives of a trio of kids living in the suburbs is shattered by a series of grisly murders, and the prime suspect might just be out of this world.
