Elroy And The Aliens - A Comical Cartoon Adventure

Hello you lovely people!

Our studio goes by the name Motiviti and we have always had one straight and simple goal -- to make an adventure game. We are indie.

Today, we are presenting the first trailer for our upcoming 2D puzzle-adventure game Elroy And The Aliens to you awesome girls and guys!



Yes, yes, busted. We're complete suckers for 80ís & 90ís point and click games. I instantly fell in love with the genre (even though it took me one day to get the barf from the ceiling in Day Of The Tentacle).



We also adore cartoons as one could tell. Old school. Tom & Jerry from the 1950's, Looney Toons and the old Disney stuff.



Oh, and sci-fi Ö Letís not forget about sci-fi.
We just came back from vacation on Naboo.



All the art and most animations in Elroy are hand crafted. All speaking characters have voice-overs. The music is original. And there is a ridiculous amount of love in every single bit of the game ...

We wanted to recreate the old-school adventure games feeling for the modern player and design the game with the touchscreen in mind.

Our goal is to provide an immersive, challenging, but not too difficult puzzle-adventure experience. A game that you can complete in one long rainy Sunday afternoon or in multiple sessions at your own pace.

We plan to release the game on iOS late 2015. After that we will make it available on other platforms, too (Android, PS Vita, PC/Mac ...)

Hey, looks like a fun time! Nice how you included the star wars-like melody in the trailer haha. That's cool you're bringing it to the Vita as well

Thanks, Crazybreadman! There's just too much of indie goodness on Vita to let this platform out

Thanks redribbon! I'll make sure to keep you guys updated It was our plan from the beginning to go "mobile first". Glad you like that idea, too.
