I was just thinking about this game the other day so it's great to hear that progress is being made.  Keep up the good work!  I really dig the new screenshot.

Nice graphics. I was surprised to hear a french theme song. Before reading the presentation, I assumed the hero was spanish since he looks a bit like Zorro and the game is developed in Spain.

This is remotely inspired by "The black tulip" which was written by Alexandre Dumas (same as the 3 musketeers and Count of Monte Christo). Even though not massively famous, the original story and its character still had some success in Western Europe, there was a movie with Alain Delon and so on. Hence the French/Spanish vibe : The movie was mostly a French production but it's one of those things that are in the collective pop culture of non-English Europe. So much so that a Spanish team decided to make a game out of it.
And yes, he's like a French Zorro (preceding Zorro's creation by 70 years  ;) ). You could also say he's like a French Scarlett Pimpernel (except the Scarlett Pimpernel is ultra-royalist bullshit  :P ).

In conclusion : This is a very cool project inspired by an underrated main adventure character. And they changed it enough to make it their own. Win-win!  ;-D

Thank you very much for your words and explanation, Monsieur OUXX. It is just as Monsieur OUXX has said, who I know knows very well the movie and the book.

We (the moderators) are having a discussion about this very thing (using social media links as updates rather than post the update here).

For the time being, while not [yet] required by the rules, it would be helpful if you could post the update to this thread (just edit your last post) so those of us who refuse/don't use Twitter (et al) can still see/follow the game's development?

Thanks!

Looks amazing!  I can't wait--do you guys have a release date yet?  (Sorry, I don't use twitter or instagram, etc., so this is where I'm following your updates...)

No!! Excuse me here, I thought it was more common than I imagined using social networks. I post you a little bit more here as previews of some scenes from the game.

No doubt the release date will be 2022;) Exact date I can’t tell you yet.

Unfinished sketch (already background finished! hehe)

I'm very excited by this game.
All the visuals and music are super tasteful yet not over-the-top, one can clearly sense the artistic sensitivity in this project. A real vibe of Monkey Island 1 -- except in VGA and with less shoehorned spoofs ;)

Thank you very much for your words. It is a pleasure to read such things and such comparisons do us honour.
This afternoon I will share more content about the game, big surprises are coming :)

This looks beautiful! Can’t wait to give it a run

These look good! Especially love the texture work in the kitchen scene, great use of pixels.
