Demetrios is a quirky point and click adventure game inspired by classics like Broken Sword, packed with tons of humor!
Bjorn Thonen, a slob of an antique dealer living in Paris, is robbed one night after coming home drunk. Forced to conduct his own investigation with the help of his neighbor Sandra, he ends up involved in a murky, mysterious affair.
Will these unlikely heroes be able to rise up and discover ancient secrets?
Demetrios features Full HD, hand-painted visuals and animated characters in first person view, similar to visual novels. You might encounter a little pinch of Discworld (some of the humor), Gabriel Knight (comic cutscenes, characters heads/dialogs), Phoenix Wright (first person view investigation)...
Please excuse Bjorn, he keeps saying nonsense...
Demetrios will be available on the Nintendo E-Shop on December 3rd, 2018 in America and Europe for a recommended price of 9,99 €.
Pre-order and a free demo are available right now!

The game is being developed with Game Maker Studio.
This is a simple game development software specialized in 2D games engines (unlike Unity, which is specialized in 3D games)
It allows to write code once, and export games to multiple platforms and environments, such as : PC, smartphones (Android, IOS, Windows Phone) and even game consoles like PS4 or Xbox One!
That said, the game is intended and optimized to be run on computers, especially due to its high resolution, very precise graphics and texts. The backgrounds are drawn at 4K resolution, then downscaled to 1080P in order to offer a crisp and anti-aliased look!
