Now in Kickstarter



The Seeds of Vala is a Classic nine verb interface Point & Click Graphic Adventure!.


The story is based in the Legend of Vala, an ancient indian fable that tells us how gemstones were created. This is the Mcguffing that triggers an amazing adventure, in order to find the nine Seeds of Vala, a powerful gemstones disseminated by Indra around the world in ancients times.

In this video we introduce this legend in one of the sequences of the video game, with “The Legend of Vala Theme” and “The Seeds of Vala Main Theme” introducing the main carácter’s leitmotiv, both of them included in the awesome original orchestral soundtrack.



- Classic style graphic adventure with graphic adventure aesthetics of the 90's.
- Nine Verbs interface.
- Languages: English and Spanish.
- Exotic places, challenging puzzles, traps, mystery and a fair right dose of humor.
- Awesome original orchestral soundtrack.
- You can choose to play with the orchestrated or midi soundtrack.


In this adventure you will put yourself in the shoes of Chase (Chester) Mcnaughton, a hired adventurer and unusual objects achiever.

Chase will receive Cornelius (Corey) Bowman’s order(a powerful millionaire and eccentric collector, patron, and philanthropist of numerous causes) to trace and find someone who has mysteriously disappeared in a hidden place on earth while searching for one of the Vala’s nine seeds of power, an Asura (demon god) that according to a Hindu legend was the origin of gems and mines.

Skeptic at first, Chase, will soon discover that there is something else behind a simple disappearance and a few gemstones. Dark secrets, and people who will not stop at anything in order to obtain a power never seen before. The supernatural and the everyday come together in this story.


The firt seed  is a blue sapphire know as ”Eye of Vala”. This is the first of the nine power gemstones and the most important, since it has the power of revelation. The Eye of Vala will reveal the location of the rest gemstones, so this is why is so important.

Each of the nine gemstones of Vala has its own kind of power. But to unleash their powers have to be used with other objects such as the Scepter of Vala or The Navratna.

Kind of puzzles with the common gemstones.
Many types of mines and common gemstones are created and concentrated around each of the nine Gemstones (Seeds) of power of Vala  due to its magical energy. Those common gemstones can be used and combined with diferent objects, like keys, doors, etc.  Many objects only need a single gemstone, others need different combinations of them. Choosing a bad combination of gems on certain objects could a bad idea and could be dangerous.

In this image you can see a gold object with five holes to place stones. It will not always be necessary to fill all holes with gemstones. Only those necessary for the purpose required and in the correct order and sequence (For example, it might be a bad idea to combine a ruby in the center with a diamond in the lower right corner),  maybe you would have a horrible death :), or not, It's only and example for illustrating purpose.



But don't worry, there will be clues that will help you choose wisely. :)


Awesome original orchestral soundtrack accompanied by ethnic instruments from each of the regions that will appear in the video game and that will make you put yourself even more in the shoes of the protagonist. The epic and adventurous themes will be mixed with varied themes adapted to each scene, with climates of mystery, intrigue and even romanticism.

Instrumentalists from around parts of the world will collaborate in the recording of the soundtrack, whose result will catch you out from the first to the last minute so that you can enjoy the adventure with all your senses.

Main Theme of Original Soundtrack


Each of the special sound effects will be completely original, studio recorded,  specifically for our adventure. Adapted to the needs of the video game, they will set the scenes and recreate the scenes much better and give the sound section the warmth necessary to immerse you in the story of our character.

A sequence in game.

I saw this on Kickstarter a few days ago, and backed it.  It looks brilliant.   :smiley:

I asked about DRM-free, and you said then it would be DRM-free for backers.
You might want to add that to the FAQ, and top of the main Kickstarter page.   :wink:

Good luck with the campaign.

This game looks fantastic. But please, for the love of all things holy, make sure that the English translation is professionally done.

"Ummm! a no exit place" is not going to be okay.

Thank you Durq, yes we know,  :wink: Don't worry for the final version we plan to locate the game with professional translators

Looks like you won't get funding.. sorry to see that mate. :( Looks awesome!

Although I fear if your project had got a lot of attention you would have got sued by Disney lol. Your assets still look a bit too much like Fate of Atlantis assets and they do enjoy going after Lucusarts related fan games (even the free ones).
