Here’s An Idea Of What Steampunk Adventure Blackmore Will Look Like

By Ishaan . February 21, 2014 . 9:30am

iQiOi, developers of Blackmore, a Japanese steampunk adventure game being funded via Kickstarter, have updated their Kickstarter page with mockup screens to give one an idea of what the game will look like. Take a look at them below.


Above are screens of Emma and Descartes standing outside a warehouse. The game takes place from an isometric angle and is modeled entirely in 3D. Clicking on the crates outside the warehouse makes the characters interact with them.


Upon entering the warehouse, the game switches to a different camera angle, like a classic point-and-click adventure game. iQiOi say that gameplay will consist of both making use of items to solve puzzles as well as dialogue choices.


Naturally, the models and environments you see above aren’t complete.


Additionally, iQiOi have also revealed that Donna Burke (Angela Orosco in SH2 and Claudia Wolf in SH3) will be voicing Emma’s mother in the game. Burke, as you may know, also voices Snake’s iDROID device in Metal Gear Solid V.


Blackmore has acquired close to $53,000 in funding thus far. The game needs $200,000 in order to be fully funded. It’s being developed by a team of developers that were involved with the development of Snatcher and is in development for PC and Mac.

    So many jokes I can make about the “Emma, you’re making me thirsty!” comment.. I think it’d be best if I didn’t though lol.

    I have a feeling that Descartes is going to be my favorite character.

  • There is a rumour that this is a part of a ruse, with Kojima doing this Kickstarter as some kind of decoy. Here’s a pic for that: GRAB YOUR TINFOIL HAT, PEOPLE.

      Heheh! I’d want to believe, but as an hypothesis I find it a little far fetched. Kojima still has old design documents for Snatcher 2 (there’s evidence of these in pictures published in 2011), so the best thing he could do would be just slamming those documents on Kickstarter and see the money pour in. Even maintaining a simple 2D, semi-animated style.


    What a bizarre trend for all these “Japanese” kickstarter campaigns to actually having their most key roles staffed by westerners.

      One of the niche companies had mentioned they didn’t want to go the route of Gajinworks for funding specific games as they didn’t think the Japanese business side would embrace the concept. And I’d also expect the difference in the size of the PC markets means more Western involvement just from a tech side.

    Donated $60. Always enjoyed these types of games. Nice of Siliconera to mention Kickstarter games, otherwise it’s hard to notice some of them.
