DreamFever, a one man indie studio is launching its first full title for the PC and Mac, Jason The Greek: The Ladies of Lemnos with the demo available for the PC now. JTG is a blend of the personalities of one of sci-fi’s most loved series into one of the greatest journeys ever told: The Quest for the Golden Fleece. JTG: The Ladies of Lemnos is chapter one in this journey, with the crew heading to the isle said to be 100% women.
Playing as Jason, it will be up to you to charm the princess, solve puzzles and unravel mysteries as you search for clues as to the whereabouts of the Golden Fleece and your next course heading.
Those interested can download the demo from here.
Kris Fosh, the artist and writer behind Jason The Greek said:
“JTG is going to be the first in a possible set of three titles spanning Jason and his crew of Argonauts’ journey across the mythological world of Ancient Greece in their Quest to find the Golden Fleece. It’s an eccentric take on the theme that hasn’t been seen before in popular culture, blending two of the most famous crews in legend – Enterprise meets Argo. I want to thank the people who have looked at the artwork and played the demo for all the generous feedback I’ve received on forums and on the main site, all of which has helped to shape the quest so far – you’re all part of the crew!”
“In the first chapter I want to set a theme for the quest, a level of humour, puns and character style to create a franchise for the other parts to follow. I’ve loved Jason’s story since I first watched the Ray Harryhausen movies back in the day and blending that with my love of Sci-fi spoofery is just too good an idea to not to try!”
The story plays out with Jason washed up on the shore of a deserted island on his way to Lemnos after he is knocked by a freak wave from the prow of the Argo. Players will take up his story by helping him find a way off of the island by solving puzzles, finding and combining random items in order to achieve new goals and, well… assaulting a Paddlecrab. If you’ve visited Monkey Islands or Hit the Road while wearing your Leisure Suit then this could be the game for you.
Jason The Greek is currently running a kickstarter campaign in the hope of securing a portion of early finance to support ongoing development of the full title, pay for freelance contractors, software licenses and other items that keep a game running on time.
