Enter an odd world filled with hideous and haunting reflections of a freakish carnival in Strangeland, the latest game from publisher Wadjet Eye.
Strangeland is a classic point-and-click adventure game that combines narrative with puzzles. Seen as a spiritual successor to popular games like Primordia (and brought to you by the same developers), you must gather some otherworldy tools and meet a cast of odd characters who can help you overcome any obstacle. Strangeland allows you to pick your own way and approach to solving these puzzles and interacting with these characters; making Strangeland less of a linear experience, putting the player into the heart of the action as a participant instead of a guide.
Strangeland is available for the PC, Mac, and Linux.
Breathtaking pixel art in twice Primordia's resolution (640x360—party like it's 1999!)
Dozens of rooms to explore, with variant versions as the carnival grows ever more twisted
An eccentric cast, including a sideshow freak, a telepathic starfish, an animatronic fortune-teller, and a trio of masqueraders
Full, professional voice over and hours of original music
A rich, thematic story about identity, loss, self-doubt, and redemption
Integrated, in-character hint system (optional, of course)
Hours of developer commentary and an "annotation mode" (providing on-screen explanations for the references woven throughout the game)
