BoltRiley1Adventure games are unique in the sense that they’re extremely flexible. Many stories that wouldn’t make for a very good action game work well in the point and click medium, so it’s great to see the genre stretching its legs and taking on a few new ideas. Not having to stick to the typical constraints of a more involved playstyle gives the genre the opportunity to make the seemingly mundane an adventure, and in the case of Bolt Riley, it doesn’t have to.

Bolt Riley is a point and click adventure game along the lines of the classics where the focus is the journey. You’ll get to explore the back alleys and beautiful beaches of Trenchtown, Jamaica as you make friends, find your inspiration, and become a reggae legend. Your inspiration can be carried with you and used throughout the game to solve problems, much like items, and each of the hand-drawn characters has something to say. Everything will be fully voiced, and although this is only Chapter 1, it’s a full length game – the first of three planned.

BoltRiley2There’s not much time left on this campaign! The campaign is a short 7-day ordeal, and at the time of writing, there are only 64 hours left to donate! Spread the word and act fast, and the gorgeous hand-drawn reggae adventure Bolt Riley will have its first chapter. This is the project’s second Kickstarter campaign, and the goal this time around is much lower. You can head over to Kickstarter to play a short demo, donate what you can, share the page with all your friends, and vote on Steam Greenlight, and maybe, just maybe, we can finally get this game funded if we act quickly enough.
