Fran Bow Is A Creepy, Psychological Adventure Game That Needs Your Help To Be Made

on July 16, 2013 6:25 PM

Natalia Figueroa and Isak Martinsson are the sole two developers of Killmonday Games, whose first title–Fran Bow–is looking for support on

Killmonday describe Fran Bow as a “very dark, almost cruel
point and click adventure game, where players control Fran, an orphan who escapes a mental asylum to find out the truth behind her parents’ death. As you can see in the Indiegogo trailer below, the game is very twisted indeed, having Fran see the world as it normally is, and through a darker lens to solve puzzles.

Fran will have her pet cat, Mr. Midnight, by her side for most of the game, which has players tackling five chapters worth of “amazingly logical” puzzles, minigames, and dialogue to complete.

Killmonday are looking for support because with just two developers working on a small salary, the game’s development has slowed down too much, and of the five chapters, only the first is complete. With your help, not only will you help the game get made, but you’ll help Figueroa and Martinsson make the development process smoother.

Killmonday have provided demos for Fran Bow on PC, Mac, and Linux platforms, and have 45 days to complete their crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo, while also looking to be considered for Steam via Steam Greenlight. Check out their Facebook page for more information. Fran Bow seems like it’s being developed with Game Maker, which has been used for such hit indie games like Super Crate Box, Stealth Bastard and Hotline Miami.
