With a retro, halfway-between-8-and-16-bit style and inspired by classic games like The Legend of Zelda, Yume Nikki, Silent Hill or Dark Souls, among others, The Count Lucanor is an amazing mystery and horror adventure set in a fairytale world. The game features important choices, alternative endings, secrets and different ways to solve puzzles. The title is in development for PC, Mac and Linux.

Exploration: Walk the Tenebre Castle and place candles on the ground to light up your path.
Conversation: Talk to NPCs to get important clues and unravel the mystery of the Count Lucanor.
Stealth: Hide under tables and behind curtains to go undetected.
Puzzles: Use the items you found wisely in order to progress.
Skill: Avoid traps and enemies in the castle by anticipating them.

We’ve hired the greatest composer of all time - Johann Sebastian Bach - to create a soundtrack that will remain etched in your mind forever. Using chiptune tools, we’ve transformed a series of hidden gems of the author to create unique soundscapes for our tale.

Once upon a time, there was a poor boy named Hans who lived with his mother near the woods. On his birthday, the boy had no presents nor sweets. He got so upset he decided to leave home for good. Before he left, his mother gave him his grandfather's cane, some cheese and three pieces of gold. Hans walked into the forest in search of adventure. Soon it was night and the boy was really scared, so he tried to go back. But then, a quaint kobold happened to cross his path and Hans decided to follow him to a castle. The kobold told him he would inherit great wealth if he passed a simple trial... guessing his name. Trapped in the castle, Hans will live a spooky mystery, fantasy and horror adventure to become the new Count Lucanor.

Hi there, we come with some news about The Count Lucanor, but first let’s take a look to our new trailer:

This new trailer is focused on the second part of the game, the Castle Tenebre, which is full of traps and puzzles to finally get the name of the mysterious blue kobold. This part is almost 50% of the whole game.

The development of the game is almost done, we are now working on polish, bug fixes and also translations. We already achieved two private betas and had a pretty nice feedback from users. We had to adjust some puzzles to be sure that no one gets frustrated in the castle Tenebre.

Also we are already doing the legal paperwork for Steam, which seems to have hired Kafka to write its FAQs. We don’t have any publisher yet so we have to do everything by our own. But with a bit of luck we will release the game this March… but I won’t say that too loudly.

Very soon we will start to contact Youtubers and press for coverage. Are you a Youtuber? We’d like to hear from you !
