Detective Gallo - NEW
« on: 25 Oct 2016, 15:14 »
Hello everybody,

let me introduce myself.
I am Maurizio De Angelis, and I am honored to present you the project whose I am co-author along with my brother Francesco.

Detective Gallo is a point&click comic-noir adventure which is entirely hand-illustrated and hand-animated, whose protagonist is a feathered and grumpy private eye struggling with a very tricky case. The story tells about five exotic plants that have been victims of a serial murder. Thanks to the support of his cactus assistant (yes, you understood well!), it will be up to Gallo to investigate, interrogating bizarre characters e solving puzzles that will put his insight and his patience to the test.

Teaser:

-   Hand-illustrated Cartoon-Noir styled characters and backgrounds (1920x1080 FullHD)
-   Frame-by-frame hand-animated characters with more sets of animations
-   Intriguing comedy/mystery plot to solve
-   All locations explorable and functional to story since the beginning to the end
-   Exponential difficulty of puzzles according to locations being gradually unlocked
-   Graphic variations of the locations based on story development
-   Game Diary recapping accomplished and current goals
-   User-friendly and minimal interface not covering the screen

Our Goal: We are finalizing a DEMO that will be downloadable and playable around the end of October 2016. It will be linked to Eppela platform to support a crowdfunding campaign thanks to which we will add the following update features in the final game build:

Thanks! ;)
Do you mean Detective Gallo would not fit to your PC screen because the game resolution is too high?

Great Scott, this looks awesome!! :-D

I noticed you're from Italy - I'm getting really strong Italian Disney Comics vibes from these screenshots! Paperino & Co. FTW! :=

Yes, I confirm that!
If you know Disney Italian style, you'll be aware of great artists like Giorgio Cavazzano and Corrado Mastantuono, to whom I got inspiration :)
