WME: Unsupported game "Basis Octavus"

Priority: normal Component: Engine: Wintermute
Keywords: Cc:
Game: Wintermute

Description

ScummVM 1.9.0git (Jul 15 2016 19:54:37)
Features compiled in: Vorbis FLAC MP3 RGB zLib MPEG2 Theora AAC FreeType2 JPEG PNG

You can find it from the developers homepage here:
http://kraaca.cz/basis-octavus/

It will start, but only show the empty inventory on the top of the screen.
One can press ESC and reach the in-game menu and can exit the game.

It needs some more work as it reports script runtime errors on start.

And, it's only in Czech.

Two questions:

Does the game use 3D-elements?

You mention Betatest, is this the final version, or is there a more specific version number available?

The "Betatest" is part of my path where i put stuff i test before i move it to something more meaningful :-)

The author mentions that it may not be completed and some things may not work, but overall it should be in a playable and winable state (That is with an online translator as i don't speak czech).

It will be 7 years old when I first started making the game Basis Octavus. In fact, I had only the vaguest idea of what I wanted to make. But gradually it began to gain contours. Finally, I almost finished the game ... and left her nearly six years on the disc. It's a bit scary as it flies.

So please, take it with a spare. The game did six years younger than me. Still, I want her to launch into the world. I think some good ideas in it.

Otherwise, the game is a classic adventure game, you talk to characters, using objects you explore the surroundings.

And by the way, has two ends!

PS: It is only for Windows and probably there will not be everything to work.

About the 3D objects, yes, i guess there is stuff in 3D in there.
I f you follow the link to the authors website there is a screenshot which has two (i guess) 3D characters in the scene.
But as i can't test the game on windows myself i wouldn't know for sure.
