HeXit is a kickstarter point and click adventure project with awesome graphics that recently committed to a GNU/Linux port if funded.
While their goal of $75,000 is high, it’s reachable within the 32 days we have left.

So if you are a sci-fi and adventure fan, this project is for you !

The Game
HeXit will be a point-and-click adventure game. We believe that the atmosphere and the visuals of a game of this genre should be as spectacular as possible, so everything in the game will be presented in the form of pre-rendered graphics. We love sci-fi, exciting stories and police procedural television series. What we are trying to achieve is creating a game combining these elements, while focusing on a compelling storyline with twists and exciting adventures. We are trying our best to create a spectacular sci-fi world, which, on the one hand, looks amazing but will also exist as a realistic, richly-detailed and interactive environment in the atmosphere similar to the new Total Recall movie. Several side-stories and detailed in-game world await those who enjoy exploring everything in a game. There will be countless usable items which can be combined. HeXit will also involve several mini-games. There will be English language voice acting for all in-game dialogues.

The Episodes
Just like the successful police procedural television series, HeXit is planned as an episodic adventure. If it is possible, we wish to release several installments. Currently, we would like to receive support for the making of the first episode, which will involve 6-10 hours of gameplay.

The Characters
The main character of the game is police Lieutenant Jane Davis, who, suddenly, finds herself in the middle of a dangerous and exciting adventure. Everything seems to change around her. She used to be the hunter, but now she becomes the prey. She has to escape, so that she could clarify herself. Will there be any trusted friends she can rely on? Who will believe her, who will betray her and who will help her…? All episodes of the game will feature dozens of individual characters. They will include loveable ones and villains, robots and cyborgs.

About two years ago I’ve posted about the Flash Based Point-and-Click Adventure game named TRAUMA.
Now it’s been finally released !

ABOUT TRAUMA
TRAUMA tells a story of a young woman who survives a car accident. Recovering at the hospital, she has dreams that shed light on different aspects of her identity – such as the way she deals with the loss of her parents. TRAUMA lets you experience those dreams in an interactive way, reminiscent of Point-and-Click Adventure Games. It builds upon this established formula by introducing a gesture-based interface, real-time 3D technology for dynamic level layouts, unique photographic visuals and a level design philosophy that focuses on creating a rich experience rather than an elaborate puzzle challenge. Combined with the unconventional story, it is aimed to be a compact and deep game for a literate and mature audience.

Trauma is a flash based game similar to Machinarium (in technology, not in gameplay or theme), so it should run on any OS.
It was designed by Krystian Majewski and will be available for free as a “website flash game”, but a “download” and “box” versions will also be available for a fee.

Trauma is a point-and-click adventure game where the game world is a huge collection of photos which create the world, the player can zoom in (thus revealing new closer photos and details) or out, move to different directions and even draw symbols which do stuff (like revealing a new path or make your character remember details from her past).
The gameplay is a bit unusual for a flash based game and the awesome narration voiced by Anja Jazeschann really adds to the game.

TRAUMA will be released by the end of 2009. It will be available for free. It is playable in most Web browsers compatible with the Adobe Flash plug-in. It requires a modern computer (no older than 3 years or so) in order to run smoothly. A downloadable version will be available for a small fee. There will also be a more comprehensive edition available on a physical medium.
