Grim Fandango? TSMI? Bingo!

I love the art-style, presentation and overall polish in the trailer.

Head-scratching puzzles are perfectly fine, providing that the solution is logical - even if sometimes requires lateral thinking. The problem with TSMI is that some of the puzzles couldn't be figured out by thinking the puzzle through, and required on combining ingredients and hoping for the best.

Extremely promising! Mobile gaming is the perfect platform for a lot of old-school genres to be given a loving 'modern' touch and introduced to a new (as well as old) set of fans.

Looks absolutely stunning - the more classic adventure games like this that come out the better. Love the art style but the main character looks a bit scary...

This looks great to me, I love the return to adventure games that seems to be happening. The iPad interface in particular is great for it. Narrative, puzzles, humor, and adventure without constant IAP prompts feels like a step forward at this point even though it's retro.

Curious: Did you use a particular engine or library for this?
