INCANTAMENTUM

Hi guys!

Some of you might have seen this on social media, but thought I better get around to posting it here!

INCANTAMENTUM is the next game from Cloak and Dagger Games! We were initially hoping for a mid-late 2020 release but that has been pushed back due to a year of rotten health. Hoping for early 2021.

A folk horror point and click mystery adventure, inspired by English folklore.

You can check out the Steam page here: https://store.steampowered.com/app/1182310/INCANTAMENTUM/ (Wishlists are appreciated if you like the look of it! Thanks :))



A mysterious letter brings noted barrow-digger Thomasina Bateman to the isolated and somewhat unwelcoming village of Bewlay, England. A subsequent series of strange events in this ancient and sodden landscape prove that this will be no ordinary dig for Miss Bateman.

The excavation of Hob's Barrow will uncover more than was bargained for...

FEATURES:
- A dark, complex and evolving storyline featuring interwoven elements from real English folklore- with many twists and turns.
- Traditional point and click adventure game puzzles and interactions, with an easy modern interface.
- A cast of intriguing characters, from suspicious villagers to sickly vicars to lordly landowners, all with their own unique stories and motives.
- A distinct "folk horror" tone and grounding.
- Evocative pixel-art graphics, featuring cut-scenes and engaging animations.
- A suitably atmospheric original soundtrack from the musician behind the award-winning "Football Game" soundtrack.
- Fiends in the furrows, the smell of damp soil, and a cat or two.





Thoughts welcome!

Many thanks,
Shaun

This looks terrific! I particularly adore the character designs. I'm always a fan of horror point-and-click games, so I will definitely be picking this one up as soon as it's ready! It's gone straight onto my wishlist and I'll definitely be following the development if you plan on posting updates.

This looks super cool. Given that Mudlarks is still one of my top AGS games, I'm really looking forward to that one : )

Before reading the description I thought it was set in Ireland around the time of the Great Famine.

The game looks fantastic.   :cheesy:

Any plans for a DRM-free release?  Please don't make it steam-only.
