Have you ever heard of the Oak Island Mystery?
It is the fantastic, overwhelming and TRUE story about an infamous treasure hidden somewhere deep inside the underworld of this island and protected by traps and flood tunnels!
The legend surrounding Oak Island started in 1795 when three men discovered a mysterious stone containing hieroglyphs and indications of a fabulous treasure. An incredible, centuries-long treasure hunt began that included several companies and individuals, including former United States of America President Franklin D. Roosevelt. But all they found were dead ends, elaborate traps, insanity or even their own demise.To date, six treasure hunters have died on Oak Island due to unexplained circumstances.

For years, we have been closely following the unfolding events on Oak Island in Nova Scotia, Canada. We have pursued every bit of news that we could get our hands on - but for quite some time now, there have been no updates on the Oak Island treasure hunt... and so we thought: Let's make an adventure game based on the infamous legend of Oak Island in which you get to hunt for one of the most sought after treasures - of all time!

Wouldn't it be amazing, if YOU had the chance to track down the legendary treasure ALL BY YOURSELF?

Which narrative form would be better suited for such a game as this other than the classic point and click adventure genre! And so we began about a year ago without considering money or a publisher. We started from scratch with the mere idea and high motivation, and wrote a dramatic, intense and thrilling story based on the legends surrounding the island.

A puzzle of a million pieces

News

Here's a list of additional things we did:
- We created 10 new rooms
- We did an overall polish almost everywhere, like adding additional details to many of our older 3D rooms as well as adding particles, shaders and different kinds of effects.
- Ongoing scripting. We added lots of puzzles
- We wrote hundreds of new texts and dialogues
- We created 4 new ingame video cutscenes
- We created a new menu with all kinds of settings like subtitles, brightness, Music/Voice/Sound Settings

A usual adventure would contain between 30 and 60 rooms. With Oak Island we have a total of more than 75 sceneries and additional close up scenes. It's a big bucket full to the brim and we must prevent it from overflow. Let's hope that it won't become any bigger; actually some parts already feel too big too handle.

Letters from the past
We have been also adding letters and drawings to the game. You will read this letters to get additional information about Oak Island, previous excavations and other strange strings that happened on the Island. These letters will give you a lot of background informations and will enrich the atmosphere.

People on Oak Island
Some of you could ask if you will get in touch with some of the "real" people who live on Oak Island these days... or even with historic, real treasurehunters like Daniel Blankenship, Dave Blankenship, Fred Nolan or Rick and Marty Lagina. Unfortunately this won't be possible because of the individual rights of these people. We just don't want to risk legal problems - so our characters on the island are purely fantasy.

And there will be more fantasy and some creative freedom. We want the game to be entertaining, so we change some small minor things here and there. Most players won't see any difference and the island stays like it is. But in detail, if you are a historian and know the geology or the history of the island, you would notice some minor differences.

How longer it will take?
We know how it is to wait. We know that most of you would really like to get the game in their hands RIGHT NOW!! Trust us, we will give our best to get it done as soon as possible!!
