Playa Games announced that it is working on Shakes and Fidget: The Adventure, a classic-style point-and-click adventure game spinoff of its Shakes and Fidget massively multiplayer online role-playing game. It is targeting a release for PC in late 2018.
Point-and-click adventure games were popular in the ’90s with hits like the Monkey Island and King’s Quest series. But the genre has seen a resurgence on PC with games like Thimbleweed Park and Deponia.
Shakes and Fidget the MMO released for the PC in 2009. Unlike most other online games, it features hand-drawn graphics and menu-based gameplay. This adventure spinoff will translate that world into the point-and-click world while retaining its look and satirical fantasy world.
Playa Games is planing to run a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One releases.
