Meet Morphopolis – A Point and Click Adventure Featuring Fine Art
Detractors of the ‘brown and bloom’ graphical plague that has run rampant during this console generation need to look no further for their new champion. The point and click adventure, Morphopolis, recently launched its public alpha to coincide with a Steam Greenlight campaign, allowing users across the globe to be blown away by the game’s unique and vivid visuals.
Morphopolis takes cues from many popular indie point and click adventures, but the game’s creators – architects Dan Walters and Ceri Williams – have used their professional talents to create an experience that is like nothing else.
Featuring a breathtaking visual style inspired fine art, Morphopolis’ graphics are inspired by the colors of posters in the 60’s and 70’s, and blend the artistic talents of great artists such as Martin Sharp, Edmund Dulac and Maxfield Parish. While these names may not mean a lot to the general gaming public, upon seeing Morphopolis in action, some gamers may find themselves stricken with a sudden interest in fine art.
Ceri Williams, Morphopolis’ Game Artist, has said that the art of the game intends to capture the essence of the close up natural world, and features the visceral nature of the insect kingdom.
Morphopolis is set to release on eight platforms simultaneously. Windows, Mac OSX, Linux, Android, iOS, Windows Phones, Blackberry, and Kindle Fire are all planned for the initial release.
