Daedalic Entertainment have announced an upcoming comic book based around the adventure game characters Edna and Harvey.
To celebrate today’s World Comic Book Day, computer game developer Daedalic Entertainment announces the production of a comic book based on their famous adventure game characters Edna & Harvey. All stories will be written, by the multi-talented author and designer Jan “Poki” Müller-Michaelis, the man behind the award-winning computer games on which the books will be based.
“We created much more than just games – we created gaming worlds, centered on characters and adventures. These adventures, however, aren’t just simply great gaming experiences, but can even be so much more and can work great in other media types as well, creating even more adventures”, explains Carsten Fichtelmann, Founder and CEO of Daedalic Entertainment. “We’re in the lucky position of having so many very talented authors in our team – such as Poki, for example – who, as multi-talented creators, can make their characters come alive. We are very much looking forward to seeing these characters starting new adventures.”
Daedalic Entertainment will announce the exact title and release date of the comic book at a later stage.
Adventure gamers know Edna and Harvey from the multiple award winning point & click adventure games such as “Edna & Harvey: The Breakout” and “Harvey’s New Eyes”. Edna & Harvey: The Breakout stunned the gaming world in 2008, when it emerged from its thesis origins to become Germany’s surprise PC gaming hit of that year. “Edna & Harvey” won several important awards, including the “Best Adventure of the Year” trophy at the German Developer Awards, as well as the Red Dot Design and LARA Games awards.
In 2011, Jan “Poki” Müller-Michaelis and developer Daedalic Entertainment continued the success story of Edna and Harvey by releasing the point & click adventure game “Harvey’s New Eyes”. Again, the game won the “Best Adventure Game” trophy at the German Developer Awards, as well as the “Best Youth Game” trophy, and it was named “Game of the Year” by many German gaming magazines.
The “Edna & Harvey” games are more than just classic point & click adventure games. Backgrounds and characters are designed using a unique 2D hand-drawn (and human drawn!) comic style. Wacky humor, bizarre puzzles, weird characters, and extensive dialogues guarantee extremely long gameplay times.
“Edna & Harvey: The Breakout” and “Harvey’s New Eyes” are available for PC and Mac via Steam, GOG and the Mac App Store.
