Archive Entertainment has announced their new title, Dragon Audit. This point & click style adventure features anime-inspired 3D visuals and modern controller-friendly input.
A tail of two characters
In a world teeming with magic and danger, a city of accountants exists which has sequestered itself behind high walls and generally unacceptable accounting principles. A battle accountant there, George, is assigned the unenviable task of leaving the safety of the city in order to storm a nearby castle. He is to slay the dragon, rescue the princess, and (most importantly) rescue the unpaid tax revenue.
Meanwhile, Ayraw (the dragon), is tired of knights showing up to slay her and is a bit jealous no one ever wants to rescue her. So she concocts a plan to trick George into rescuing her instead of rescuing the princess. Hijinks ensue as the two team up, the unlikely duo slowly growing closer through their shared adventure.
“In the spirit of classic adventure games, Dragon Audit combines lighthearted humor with the undertones of a serious story. You’ll get to meet a cast of quirky characters, solve puzzles, find all sorts of jokes in the interactable 3D environment, and explore the backstories of our two protagonists,” said Robby Zinchak, the writer and director of the project.
An early, work-in-progress version of the game is now available at the game’s website. While in development, the game can be purchased on PC for $9.99, with a bundle including planned bonus content available for $14.99. When fully complete, the game is planned to be released on Nintendo Switch, Sony PlayStation 4 and Steam.
