Zniw Adventure is a cartoon-style 2D point and click adventure game aimed at younger players, featuring dinosaurs, hand-drawn graphics with traditional frame-by-frame animation, educational content and a whole lot of adventures of our heroine Zniw in the prehistoric land of Polisemia.
Zniw Adventure started as a comic draft created by the artist Karolina Twardosz. In late 2013 Karolina contacted programmer/designer Łukasz Mikołajczyk with an idea of creating a video game together. After several days of discussions, it was settled on a point and click adventure game for children with cartoon/comic book visuals, using the designs and world setting from Karolina's dinosaur comic. Prototyping began around February 2014, and the project was revealed to the wider audience on 22nd June, 2014.
The game was supposed to be a short, free downloadable title, with just several puzzles and one complete location. However since people liked the initial idea and mechanics well enough, it was decided to treat that version as a demo, and redesign/rework the game in Q3 2014 into a fully-fledged commercial adventure.
Since then, the game was expanded by 10 different locations, more than 17,000 frames of animation (including cartoon-like FMV segments as well), over 20 designs of prehistoric creatures and additional features, like unlockable bonuses and dinosaur encyclopedia.
The game appeared on Steam Greenlight in May 2016, and passed it within three weeks of waiting in the queue, while a proper Steam page was launched in September 2018.
The game is developed without any budget or publisher, by just two people alone. As of November 2018, it's around 95-97% complete.
