Crowdsourcing Mornings: A Trail Of Ooze Game

This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.

Please read our crowdsourcing guidelines at:  https://geekalabama.com/media-kit-pr/geek-alabama-crowdsourcing-guidelines

A Trail of Ooze is a Point-and-Click adventure, that we have been working on in our spare time for three years. During this time, the project went from a hobby to an absolute passion and ended in us founding Insanto Studios AB last year, our own little indie game studio. We started at zero and have taught ourselves everything we needed to know to create an awesome demo.

Except for some alterations, the demo shows the opening of the game as it will be in the full game. The demo is voiced in English with subtitles in English, German, French, Latin American Spanish, and Simplified Chinese. The release of the full game on Win/Mac is planned for end of 2023. If there is a demand for it, we’d love to see A Trail of Ooze on Mobile, PlayStation, Xbox and Switch later as well.

Key features of the full game

  • Colourful hand-drawn graphics,
  • A simple one-click interface,
  • Roughly 8 hours of varied gameplay,
  • A graphical quest log, hot-spot highlighters, and mini-map fast-travel,
  • And tons of clever references and story-rich characters.

Play as Majros, a sarcastic cow, who lives on a small farm in the middle of the Swedish forests oblivious to the struggles of the outside world – until genetically engineered chemicals spread across the farm. All animals and plants mutate and gain human-like consciousness and the farmer, who witnessed it all, is kidnapped by agents from the evil agrochemical corporation. So Majros, together with her sidekick Hilma, the hen, set out on a rescue mission following a trail of the chemical ooze.

On her adventure she unravels conspiracies, battles social injustices and comes face to face with environmental disaster. Forced to leave her safe bubble, Majros learns that no cow or story is only black and white and that she cannot make it alone against the insidious corporation, CropCorp.

The game is full of subtle (and some not so subtle) references to the human footprint on earth and we want to raise discussion about social and environmental issues through the medium of games and a lot of humour.

As of November 19th, this project has raised $16,200 of their $22,705 goal. This project has 5 days left to raise the $22,705 or it will not be funded.
