Zak McKracken sequel released

“Zak MacKracken – Between Time & Space” has just been released last week at a grand release party in Cologne, Germany. Now ladies & gentlemen, please hold your horses, it’s freeware and the download links are posted below.

I’m still drunk of joy to finally get my hands on this game (and they are still shaking). This is not just another release from some game developer, this is the result of 7 years continued devotion by some exceptional talented individuals. Branded as just a fan project this is not an official sequel but looking at the final product I can’t imagine who else could have done a better job. This game is filled with heart & soul and a clever story-line that was carefully fine tuned over years.

Although the guys involved work as pros in the game business, this project was not about profit. This was about reviving forgotten principles and combining it with today’s technology.

Up to 25 people were involved at some stages during the process, while only 10 had the stomach to stay in the game until the final release. My deepest & sincerest kudos to all of those involved. Thank you so much, you have truly made a dream come true.

Before I get too sentimental here are some screenshots to speed up your heart rate.


Some shots of the fantastic intro movie that doesn’t need to hide behind any commercial production.

 


Although only 2D the same goes for the in-game graphics

So, it’s about time to cancel all of next week’s appointments, take annual leave or just call in sick because if there is any game that can make a grown man wet his pans then it’s this.
