A free game inspired by Umberto Eco's novel and Jean-Jaques Annaud's film "The Name of the Rose", and based on the game "La abadía del crimen" by Paco Menéndez and Juan Delcán.

Don’t follow several and odd sophistical doctrines that spread pestiferous seeds – wrote Clement VI himself in the year 1346 to the masters and alumni from Paris University.

The Pontifex addressed in his letters to the doctrine of an illustrious Franciscan monk of English origin named William of Occam, who ran away several years earlier from the prison of Avignon, accused of heresy. He had been imprisoned for four years, until he could escape, and shought asylum in the court of Emperor Ludwig of Bavaria, who was at odds with Pope John XXII.

When the Emperor died, William wanted to return to the mission with his order and the church, so he traveled to Italy with his young novice to meet Bernardo Gui, who was the head of the Inquisition at that time in that region, and, ultimately, the representative of the Pope.

However we cannot know for certain whether William achieved his goal. Only the testimony left by his disciple years after the events happened, in a collection of scrolls; where those amazing and terrible events that happened during the week William and him spent in the abbey the meeting was scheduled were described.

The testimony of the story you are about to revive…

In this game you play as a Franciscan, Fray William of Occam and his young novice Adso of Melk on a quest to discover the perpetrator of a series of murders in a Benedictine abbey. The entire game is played in an isometric 3D environment, with a series of objects that has to be collected in order to successfully complete the game.

The Abbey of Crime Extensum reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Spain
The Restless Crosshead, mentor of Steam had Always been curious to try a game, The Abbey of Crime, the original, which has always been classified as one of the references or classics of the Golden Age of Spanish software. Today, thanks to this fantastic "remake", we can do it in a way more according to the Times that run and finally, delve into a world that, even despite its limitations, manages to put the habit and feel the austerity of life monastic in our own Meats. As well have been charged to remark their creators, The Abbey of Crime Extensum, like the original, is based on both the literary work and the film "The Name of the Rose", taking even the latest designs of characters and situations to create A world a little more believable that gives form and image to the development of events narrated in the novel and that will lead us to the resolution of a series of murders perpetrated in the bosom of a seemingly calm, abbey. Well, once having put in position, the sound section and the atmosphere of silence and mystery that surround the video game do the rest, getting, as I said at the beginning, to enter fully in the simple and austere but rigorously ordered Life of a monk inside a monastery that, with its own conflicts and rules, works autonomously as a microcosm isolated from the rest of the world. Thus, without stridency or changes of scenery, The Abbey of Crime transports us to its world in a totally unexpected way for a videogame of such simplicity in its approach. Personally and to my surprise, the truth is that I have to admit that it is strange to see that such a small level of immersion has been achieved. Graphically the "remake" has adapted its graphics to the "pixel art" style that is so topical and so good results. Everything is recreated in detail but under the aesthetic of a "super deformed" style, both in the characters and in the architecture of the abbey. Here Is a great effort to bring the classic to new players, which also results in improvements in gameplay as a new control, a map of help and, obligatory today, possibility of saving our games. I Think that, without knowing exactly what the original work was, I can say that the objective has been achieved to give you a new opportunity, a new life, for those who in your time could not enjoy it. Possibly not like everyone for its slow development or simply by the proposal itself (re) raises, but if you give it a chance you can end up discovering a more complex videogame and therefore entertaining what initially could Seem. There's no need to say yes, in addition to enjoying the video games, you did with the novel or the movie on which it is based, this "remake" is an opportunity that you can not let escape, even more if you are offered for free as a homage to a classic. I Think now I understand all the fame of the original and that, I hope, continues to increase thanks to Extensum.
