xxThe Idea

The Adventures of the Black Hawk is a point&click graphic adventure based on the novel and the film The Black Tulip, which honors the classic adventures of Lucasarts of the 90s. This is a pixelated graphic adventure with a resolution of 320x200 pixels with a music according to the old Sound Blaster. inspired by games like The Secret of Monkey Island, Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis or Touché, which creates a new story that will have the same gameplay and humor as its predecessors providing hours of fun.

The Videogamexx

As true fans of Lucasarts' 1990’s graphic adventures, our game is based on the artistic style of games like Monkey Island or Indiana Jones. In addition, we have tried to develop a story with a script following Lucas' humorous clichés. The irony and humour of our story is based mainly on the story of Monkey Island, with a protagonist with big dreams, somewhat clumsy and with absurdly funny situations happening to him.

Guybrush Treepwood has been the inspiration to develop the personality of our protagonist and so is reflected in the very introduction of the game. He turns out to be a frustrated hero who spends his life trying to achieve a great achievement. On the other hand, both Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade and Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis have a somewhat more serious and historical script, something that we wanted to adapt with a historical script based on the French Revolution.

Based on this latest game in addition, we have tried to represent the same graphic style in our backgrounds, with a great designer with enormous experience in other important graphic adventures,
Monkey Island
that has definitely made this style a reality in our game. A drawing pixel art style, full of details, with a vivid colour palette and a resolution of 320x200px, is a true tribute to the adventures mentioned above. And not only that, besides, we’ve managed to develop a mixed battle system between the above-mentioned games, as The Adventures of The Black Hawk will have a sword fighting system like in Monkey Island, controlled like the Indiana Jones and Last Crusade ballasts.

xx The Book

The book by Alejandro Dumas entitled The Black Tulip published in 1850 and set in the Netherlands (hence the chosen flower) is a direct source from which our script emanates. The brothers De Witt, protected Libro de El Tulipán Negro of King Louis of France, will find death at the hands of the mad people of The Hague, who believe them guilty of a conspiracy. But before he dies, his godson Cornelius will be left with compromising documents that will take him to prison, where, in the company of young Rosa, he will strive to achieve what he desires most in the world: the bulb of the black tulip. In this way it has served as an influence for the setting and recreation of the customs of the end of the eighteenth century and the beginning of the nineteenth, as well as to capture the spirit of the characters of the time.

The Filmxx

But if our script is based on anything, it’s definitely the movie called The Black Tulip. It is a French production from the 50s that narrates the adventures of a character similar to the Zorro,Película de El Tulipán Negro in a villa in the south of France and which also leads a double life: on the one hand it turns out to be an important and well-placed aristocrat while on the other it hides behind its mask to steal from the rich and distribute the wealth among the peasant class taking advantage of the information that its noble class makes it obtain. Our adventure is based mainly on your story, locations and your characters in this filmPelícula de El Tulipán Negro The Black Tulip is a source of inspiration from which we have departed when developing our game. Although the film is only a starting point of inspiration, as we mentioned, since the characters have a totally different personality with comic, ironic and unhappy tints full of humour, again mentioning the LucasArts games as the main sources of inspiration in this regard.
