“My name is Sam. Sam Carlisle. I have a normal life. A life that I really enjoy. It is simple really. I go to work, come home and work on a secret project. A project that will make me millions. A lost treasure. A treasure too big for one man, one man alone. “

The Adventures of Sam Carlisle had a two years development cycle. It is a 2D adventure platformer game that takes the player on an adventure of a life time. With wonderful music composed by the talented Pieter Smal and the voice of Deon Coetzee. With 100 handcrafted levels, the world will test your skill and patients with a twist of emotion.

The game is set to be released on 6 October 2017 at the rAge gaming expo at the home_code stand. DVD copies of the game will be available as well Steam keys. The game will be available for Windows, Mac and Linux. The game’s selling price will only be R150 per unit.

The previous game that Givit Game Studios released was THE WITCH OF ERAST on mobile. THE ADVENTURES OF SAM CARLISLE will be our first commercial release.
