Strangeland is another point & click adventure in the portfolio of Wormwood Studios - a team of independent developers whose achievements include the warmly received Primordia. The game was created with the PC platform in mind, and the creators used the ideas developed for earlier, long dead projects (such as Trenchmouth and Cloudlands).

Story

In Strangeland, players take on the role of a man affected by amnesia, who one day wakes up in the middle of a psychedelic carnival. Shortly afterwards, he witnesses the suicide of a golden-haired woman who, for his own good, throws herself into a bottomless well. The protagonist decides to find out what's going on, which is all the more difficult because circus tents and dim stalls are inhabited by abormal creatures, such as malicious ravens, eyeless scribe or an animated oven. As if that wasn't enough, things quickly start repeating themselves - like in the movie Groundhog Day, a woman jumps again and again into the endless abyss. The protagonist comes to the conclusion that a dark creature occupying the top of a mountain railway is behind the whole situation.

Mechanics

The action in Strangeland is shown in isometric view. As in the aformentioned Primordia, during the game we mainly deal with traversing locations, conducting conversations with NPCs (who often have valuable information and may or may not be willing to share it), collecting items and solving logic and environmental puzzles.

Technical aspects

Strangeland's two-dimensional graphics adopt the pixel art technique; the game iss maintained in a depressing style and enriched with modest color palette, thanks to which the visual sphere of the game fits well with the gloomy atmosphere built both by the soundtrack and by numerous references to the works of Edgar Allan Poe.
