Cybersalon this week!
Adventure X 2014 and trading cards!
Description
Release date: March 14, 2013
A point and click with more humour than sense.

Playable Demo

Summary
In the far future, humans explore and colonise space using ridiculously deadly, moon-sized trains - 'Astro Locomotives'. They're operated by enormous, competing railroad companies and train vs. train combat is (expensively) common.

Take control of a mistreated mechanic and a swashbuckling pilot as you try to save Gilbert Station from destruction at the hands of an alien death fleet!

Features
  • Classic 1990s adventure gameplay! Inspired by genre classics such as Space Quest, Monkey Island and Day of the Tentacle.
  • Trains. In space. That's worth the entry price, right there.
  • The funniest writing in an adventure game this side of the millenium. That might be a positive or a negative, depending on how much you enjoy laughing until you dribble.
  • Two playable characters for the price of one.
  • Fully voiced! You'll also be able to turn the voice-over off, since we know some of you like to do that. Just know that every time someone ticks that particular box in the game settings, we'll kill one of our voice actors.
  • Fully soundtracked! You won't be able to turn the music off. In fact, the volume slider starts at 100% and it only goes up from there.
  • The 'unique' graphical style of subAtomic and Plan M!
  • Interesting puzzles and minigames! We know a lot of you adventure gamers out there like to actually have some challenge in your games. For everyone else, just curl up tight, hold down your Escape key, and hope it ends soon.
  • 20 in-game achievements to be unlocked, if you have nothing better to do.
  • An entirely reasonable retail price of £3.99/$5.99!

The character sprites kinda look like they’re in the wrong game (in a good way).

I once vowed to play every game where there is a fuel station in the desert with a loo next to it. You are my last hope.

Hey guys - apologies for the lengthy time between being greenlit and our final release! Real-life has been getting in the way in all manner of different ways, but we're now getting the last few things done to get A:WC finished and on Steam!

Achievements & trading cards WILL be a thing, 100%.

So, any ETA on Steam release???

Congratulations on your Greenlight!
In light of Desura's bankruptcy, will those of us who purchased via IndieGala Greenlight Bundle 4, who received a Desura key, still be able to get a Steam key through IndieGala or some other distribution method if Desura becomes defunct before this game becomes active on Steam?

Hey everyone, we are working on it, we're just dealing with jobs and that we now live on different continents. But we fully intent to have the game out this year, sooner rather then later!

I take it they have no plans to release on Steam even though they were Greenlit ages ago....
