Game release: “TSIOQUE” (PC)

OhNoo Studio and Smile Studios‘ point-and-click adventure game TSIOQUE combines hand-painted animation with a story-book twist.

Usually princesses imprisoned in a castle by an evil wizard need saving, but titular heroine Tsioque does it herself this time before her home falls completely into darkness. As demons and other magical, hostile creatures appear because of the wizard’s spell, the castle also changes its interiors, so the brave girl has to escape the place and find a way to break the spell before it’s too late. What sounds like a dark fairy-tale with clear-cut good vs. evil themes also changes with the castle, as not everyone who seems nice and everything that seems bad necessarily acts this way, making Tsioque’s journey that much more intriguing, as she tries to see through illusions and misconceptions.

Despite looking like a point-and-click adventure game with some gorgeous animations and hand-painted backgrounds, the gameplay offers a few surprises that might not be for the traditionalists, mainly because there are quite a few time-sensitive sequences. Anyone who has played and remembers the Dragon’s Lair trilogy will find similarities in the way how danger lurks around every corner, so one should be prepared to die and try again quite a few times. However, as there’s much more interactivity with the environments and the gameplay doesn’t rely on quick presses of the same keys as in the arcade classics, even adventure game purists should give the game a try, not only because of its great animation work, but also because of the refreshing take on the damsel-in-distress formula.

The game is out now on PC with a 15% launch discount that will last until November 14th, 7pm UTC.
