Jason: The Greek is a point n’ click adventure game inspired by classics like Sam & Max: Hit The Road and Monkey Island. In the creators’ own words, the game is a ‘Jason and the Argonauts meets Captain Kirk’, placing a focus not just on puzzle-solving and exploration, but also on humor.
The story has you controlling Jason in his quest for the Golden Fleece, to achieve this you’ll have to make good use of your crew coupled with some good ol’ Shatner-style bravado
Graphically, the game has a very cartoon-y style, adding to the overall charm and silliness of the concept. Some of the humor will likely go over children’s but will make anyone who gets them chuckle or blush depending on how much of a prude they are.
Fans of Star Trek will also be treated with plenty of death scenes by the above-mentioned “red skirts”. In true fashion, there will be crew members in red tunics that will sacrifice their lives for the brave captain.
Currently the game is on Kickstarter, reaching the final days of their campaign with less than £3,000 to go! So it looks like the campaign will be neck-and-neck. We definitely hope Jason The Greek will reach its goal as we’d love to play the final release of this game, what about you?
