Menulis and Miestas
Created by Jurgis Jonaitis and Justinas Malijonis, Miestas is actually a follow-up to Menulis. Both games incorporate hand-drawn graphics and animation and create a surreal world adventure to point-and-click through. Very nice.
Following is a reader submitted review by Fuzzboxer:
The hand drawn animations and old-school Jazz music soundtrack of Miestas and Menulis set the tone for an experience that is just this side of cool. The simplicity in controls leaves you wishing for something more polished until you realize the environments more than make up for it.
The design and style is what you'll notice first as it takes over with splashes of color and foreground objects. Every element of each screen gives insight about the dream world that we have been dropped into. Utilizing nothing but the keyboard—[left] and [right] arrows move your character, press [space] to interact, [X] to cancel—your goal is to get from one screen to the next. Bits of the silent movie story are revealed in each screen for what amounts to a relaxing and engaging casual game.
Cheers to Graeme and Fuzzboxer for sending this in.
