About

Guide Alum on his spiritual journey through the dangerous, icy, "Land of Tide". Help him discover the truth about his city, Kosmos, and the mysterious epidemic known as "The Vague". As the tale unfolds, it will keep you enthralled all the way up to its epic conclusion.

Alum is an original point-and-click adventure game. It has the nostalgic feel of classics (90's Lucasarts, Sierra games) mixed with modern game-play elements and pacing that caters more towards this generation. The world, story, and characters lean towards a RPG-esque style, while the game-play mechanics and puzzles stay true to the classic point-and-click genre.

- Features -
* Full length game (roughly 7-10 hours of gameplay)
* Over 70 hand-drawn backgrounds - Including a map screen to travel across the "Land of Tide"
* All original soundtrack (live recorded instruments mixed with electronic elements)
* Intuitive puzzles that are logical, balanced, and rewarding (no pixel hunting)
* Full voice acting
* Gratifying frame by frame animations
* Retro classic resolution

Alum is a Random Find that can be seen! I made some Games myself and saw and tried even more. Alum is reminiscent of the classic Adventures of the early 90s, but with modern Controls. You no longer have all the Options like press and pull, but it's Use and watch. (VGL MI1 and MI3) Alum scores with loving Pixel Art, really nicely done-anyone expecting Unreality graphics is completely wrong and can happily sit down at their Console ... The Game is set to music and offers a Help Function that is not needed yet, But Bisland is he sSehr seh well succeeded. Who liked Monkey Island 1 + 2 or Sherlock Holmes 2 can fall in love with this Game. Very very nice Adventure. I muss to stop so I can do a Let's Play, but I could move on immediately! If you absolutely need to hear something negative-the Pixel Font can be read from several Meters nict more without Brile ... Thumbs up! Buy Game!

A short Review of the Game, which I rate positive: Positive:-Light to difficult Puzzles to solve (complete Game)-Very successful story. She's gripping from the Start and you really want to learn more about it-characters harmonize well with each other and the Actions don't feel over the top-Long Playing time (more on That at Negative)-During the Game several Characters playable (if only briefly ..) Now to a few Defects in the Game! Cons:-Solutions are plausible, but from time to time made far too cumbersome, that can be a bit annoying-Story pulls out a bit at the End, because the Solution to advance is very confusing but very confusing-2 Achievements very difficult to get: Reason: Once sol If you told Pige that The Rushlight give, but this Part never occurred in the Game. Furthermore, I didn't have a Chance to get "Sniper Elite," because the Frequency was repeated several times, so I had to press "SKIP" to get on. However, This Error only occurs with some Players. -Unfortunately, game can only be played in English. Conclusion: I also enjoyed MIT the Problem, because I was very interested in the Story and the Characters fit in super. You could, as I said, patch a few Things, if not have to, but it's playable and can recommend it to anyone who likes to solve Puzzles and stand on a gripping Story!
