Description
Release date: Q4 2015
The Season of the Warlock, previously known as The Weird Story of Waldemar The Warlock, is a classic point and click adventure game which combines vintage horror with dark humour. Mostly 2D, with very detailed and artistically painted backgrounds. It is our contribution to a genre that we believe in and enjoy.

The (Weird) Story in a nutshell

Our adventure is set in the fictitious realm of Groldavia. Once upon a time ruled by a fiendish feudal lord (Starosta) called Waldemar Gorobec, this is a country steeped in legends.

One of the myths surrounding Waldemar is that he was a warlock of unimaginable power and cruelty, until finally he was betrayed by his closest apprentices and burned at the pyre by a frenzied populace…

Centuries later, his life and work form the subject of devoted study for Alistair Ainsworth, an english lord obsessed with the occult. He is so immersed in his research that he has set up his living quarters at the old castle that used to belong to the fabled necromancer, with the sole company of Nigel, his loyal, if somewhat rascally, butler.

Both of them will soon be up to their noses in the mysteries hidden within the ancient walls of the castle which seem to emanate from the imposing and compelling portrait of the warlock himself. This painting appears to be the depositary of Waldemar´s errant soul, a soul that is still yearning to carry out its grisly vengeance and that will present Lord Alistair with an offer he will not be able to resist.. or will he?

I have to agree with Nozomi, the previous title had a ring to it and said a little bit about the game. "The season of the Warlock" sounds so generic. Nontheless I'm still looking forward to this game and I hope the developers will do a great job :) It looks amazing :D

I have to confess that the title "The Weird Story of Waldemar, the Warlock" was the thing that caught my attention and made me follow this game. I will miss that title
Anyway, nice job are you doing there with the art.

Hi again!

Just wanted to let you know that we posted a new update at Kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/encomplot/the-weird-story-of-waldemar-the-warlock/posts/1215123

Everything is explained right there, but as a summary: we changed the name of the game and we updated the art!

Thank you for your support. As soon as we have important information we will be posting a notice.

We are pretty confident that there will be a Linux version. There is no confirmation yet, we have to thoroughly test builds to get sure it works smoothly, but it is looking good so far.

Can't wait for playing it!

That's good news. :) Is there any chance we might see a Linux version of the game too, now that the engine supports it?

Great news! I'm so happy the project has not been abandoned :)
