About the game
Steampunkish Paris and Nikola Tesla... ?!
MAELSTROM LEGACY : Tesla Mystery is a single-player Point & Click / Puzzle video game set in a 1940s uchronistic/anachronistic Paris.
You play as Hayao Maelström, a young Japanese scientist who goes to Paris after being invited to the Scientists Congress, organized by Nikola Tesla and many other inventors every ten years. However, during the opening speech of this congress, the lights are cut off. When they are turned back on, they notice that Tesla has disappeared.
Hayao is going to investigate, mixing puzzles and intrigue, and try to find out who is pulling the strings among the people who might have a grudge against poor Tesla!
The game is developed on RenPy, a Visual Novel engine. We’re working with a graphic designer and a composer on the game assets.
MAELSTROM LEGACY : Tesla Mystery is strongly inspired by Ace Attorney and Professor Layton, who have always been references for KARAVAJGAMES. The goal is also to pay tribute to many little-known inventors. A demo is planned for autumn 2022.
