ZAK - repixeled V0.1.5



This is a repixeled version of the game's beginnig of Zak McKracken. It includes the intro and the first couple of rooms in San Francisco in redone retro pixel graphic.
It's made with love and with respect for the beloved point and click classic.





Zak McKracken was the first adventure game I've ever played.
I was facinated by the freedom of possibilities to interact with the environment - even if this leads to a lot of dead ends.

Around four years ago, I ended up with a sprite of Zak in a C64-esque palette. Shortly after, the first room was done also.
I implemented all this into an AGS project and added more and more stuff.
For about one year there was no progress and now I've decided to just release what I've got so far.

You can watch the intro and play the San Francisco part - without the 14th Avenue and the shop, but apart from that with all the interactions from the original game.
If you find something I've missed, please let me know.

This is a freeware fangame. The original game was released by Lucasfilm Games in 1988 and can be purchased on gog.com or steam.


The download of my version can you find here on the AGS games page.

Enjoy as much, as I did during production.

I'll definitely have to give this a shot, and see how you made everything look.

@Danvzare:
I hope you got time to play the game and had fun to investigate.

@selmiak:
Thanks for uploading your video.
For me it's very interesting to watch someone else playing the game. As there was no real playtesting, I've seen some minor glitches - and changed them.

A new version is online.

There was a major bug in the previous versions. The "give" command was not working properly. This and some minor bugs are now fixed.

Have fun...

Thanks, Kweepa.
Maybe I can find some time to add the 14th Avenue and the shop - because it's fun to buy and sell stuff - but for remaking the full game my free time is too little at the moment.
