oakisland3Oak Island in Nova Scotia, Canada, has a lot of mystery surrounding it. According to the stories some time ago men found a mysterious rock with hieroglyphs on it, indicating a treasure in the general area. Since then, treasure hunters from all over the world have come to Oak Island to find this treasure, with up to six of them losing their lives in the process. It seems that no matter how they schemed their way around the island, there was always some sort of blockage or trap in the way.

Since it’s been so long since anything Oak Island related has popped up, Visionaire Studios decided to make their own Oak Island related content, titled appropriately enough “The Mystery of Oak Island“. And what better way to look for treasure and explore a mystery other than a point and click game? Especially since Visionaire has quite the reputation in that genre to begin with by “Zack McKracken: Between Time & Space.”

oakisland2Because of the massive caliber production is going to be for this point and click adventure, Visionaire is seeking funding for $100,000 by June 12th. They’re intending to give The Mystery of Oak Island absolutely beautiful 3D animated cutscenes and a full HD resolution during gameplay. It will span between 10-20 hours of gameplay as well. On top of that, it’s expected to not only be released on PC but Mac, Linux, and Android as well.

Though the project may seem ambitious, within the first couple of days in their campaign they have already managed to raise about $10K. With a unique game idea and strong initial support we’ve got our fingers crossed for a successful Mystery of Oak Island Kickstarter campaign.
