Game Description


Four Last Things is a point-and-click adventure game made from Renaissance-era paintings and public domain recordings of classical music. It is about sin, and the Four Last Things – Death, Judgement, Heaven and Hell – and strives to be intelligent and ridiculous in equal measures.
 
Think Monkey Island meets Monty Python meets Hieronymus Bosch.
 

The Final game will be around 2-3 hours long, it will feature a richly detailed world - full of locations to explore, characters to interact with and puzzles to solve - and it will be available for PC, Mac and (hopefully) Linux some time towards the end of 2016.

Story

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. God saw all that he had made, and it was good. Then the Lord God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.


'Ooops,' said god, seeing he had created a fool. But before he was able to remedy his error, man spoke;

'No backsies!' he chirped, and scuttled off into the forest.

* * *

Many years later we meet our mighty protagonist. He has traveled many miles seeking forgiveness. Unfortunately, as he finally reaches the end of his great pilgrimage, he is told that he has arrived at the wrong church. Due to some bizzare, Kafkaesque clerical error, the sins he has committed are not valid in this catchment area, so he is forced to go out and commit them all again...

In Four Last Things players will commit sins, give confession and perform obscure penance, before ultimately being confronted with the Four Last Things – Death, Judgment, Heaven and Hell. This journey will take them from the Garden of Eden, through a distorted vision of 16th century Flanders, to their ultimate resting place in Heaven or Hell. Where they end up will depend on the way they act throughout the game, but the true route to success might not be as obvious as it first appears...
