TREASURE ISLAND


STORY:

"Greetings, mate, and welcome to treasure Island! You are Jim Hawkins, hero of this tale. You'll venture to recover the buried treasure of the infamous pirate Captain Flint.
You will need the treasure map; but beware--Captain Flint's crew is also searching for it. These bloodthirsty pirates are treacherous. They love only treasure and rum, and will stop at nothing to get them.
You will have help on your adventure. The wealthy Squire, the wise Doctor, and the courageous Captain are all honest men who will aid you as much as they can.
But beware the crafty Long John Silver and the strange maroon Ben Gunn. You will encounter them in your journey to the exotic West Indies, where Flint buried his treasure.
This is the adventure of a lifetime, filled with danger and excitement. Good luck, mate!"

This looks awesome arj0n! Reminds me a bit of the Monkey Island game Chicky was making (art wise).
Is this a freeware or will we get the enjoyment of paying you to play this? :D :D

[edit]
ops, just realised this is a remake so I should probably assume it's freeware :D. Never heard of the original game so :P. looks sweet either way ^^

I guess not many people know or played the original version since that one's over 30 years old... ;)
I used to play it back in the 80's and always wanted to remake it, point 'n click style but still as retro as possible, so I did.

Was always my favorite book! Read it a bunch of times as a young guy.. Then tried to read it to my son at 5-6yrs, I forced him... (I like to think he secretly liked it (nod) )

OMG....I totally played this game! I don't think I could finish it though. I either played it at a local library on limited time, or I rented the game for a week. Either way, I ran out of time. You may be saving my inner-completionist! AND the game looks beautiful!

A text-heavy, compass rose-driven fiction around R.L. Stevenson's lovely book? Sir, game of the year!
(If anyhow possible, please include an additional option to choose those four RGB values by myself :-* )

Thanx! If only I had made this (years?) earlier, then you could have played it together instead of reading him the book (nod)

Thank you! Once released, you finally can finished it without running out of time (laugh)

Thanx for the compliment! ;-D
And sorry: although a cool idea and probably not impossible, I can't include such option.
That would require too much extra work, having it so close to be finished.

Thankies, Retro never dies 8-)
You're doing a great job on I'm Not Here btw!

I'm one of the testers on the project and, I assure you, it does indeed do what you say. I had a quick look at the latest build just now and for a while I was twelve years old again and sitting in my jammies in front of my Commodore 64 with a cup of hot milo close at hand. Wonderful!

Thank you, NickyNyce. It should flash you back about 30+ years in time ;)

Ah, so the flashing back does work :-D
