'Intruder in Antiquonia' Playable Demo Available On Steam

Intruder In Antiquonia is a modern 2D point-and-click adventure set in a disconcerting town that disregards the Internet.

Sarah, the protagonist, wakes up with amnesia and has to solve a series of puzzles to discover her past.

The story unfolds in present times. Sarah, the protagonist, is found lying on the road that leads to the town of Antiquonia. She is found by Karim, the ambulance driver in town. Together with the police officer and the convent gardener, Karim will help Sarah as she navigates both her lost memories and Antiquonia.

Antiquonia is fairly unique and heavily inspired by the region of Galicia, Spain, where both developers grew up. Galicia has many beautiful towns full of soul and a long history, and the developers worked hard to capture that in the visuals of the game.

As Sarah digs deeper into her memories, she discovers that she can hack computers and gadgets. That skill would be a complete game-changer in most places, but Antiquonia is a bit special when it comes to technology, so it won’t be so easy.

Antiquonia is designed to be a delight to explore, not just through beautiful visuals, but also by including charming, fully dimensional characters with motivations and in-depth backstories. Puzzles are deeply integrated with the story and are designed to keep the challenge at a level that feels rewarding when you solve them while still not being too stressful.

While the game is primarily a drama, it’s full of brief moments of comedy to break the tension, inspired by great movies such as Life Is Beautiful and As Good as it Gets. These moments are achieved through the unique personality of certain characters, who are fun to listen to, authentic, and they never pretend to be something they are not.

If your idea of a relaxing evening where you forget your everyday worries is exploring beautiful locations filled with interesting challenges, then this adventure game is for you!

And if you long for the days of classic point-and-click adventure games, you must try this demo right away.

Key Features:

  • Captivating story with a good sense of humor, that will help you disconnect from the real world.
