xxWhere did the idea come from?

The adventures of The Black Hawk is a graphic adventure point&click based on the novel and movie The Black Tulip, which honors the graphic adventures from LucasArts during the 90’s.

The Videogamexx

As real graphic adventures from the 90’s of LucasArts fans, our game is based on artistic style like Monkey Island or Indiana Jones games. In addition, we have tried to develop a story with a script following the humorous topics of LucasArts. Irony and humor in out story are based mainly in the Monkey Island story, with a main character with big dreams, kind of clumsy and followed by absurdly funny situations.

Guybrush Threepwood has been an inspiration to develop the personality of our main character and it is reflected in the game intro. Turns out to be a frustrated hero that spends his life trying to achieve a goal, In the other side, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade and Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlants have a script little more serious and historical, something that we wanted to adapt with a historic script based on the French Revolution.

Based on this last game, we have tried to represent the same graphic style with our scenarios, with a great designer with huge experience in other important graphic adventures,
Monkey Island
who has achieved to make this style for real in our game. A pixelated draw art, full of details, with a bright color palette and a 320x200 px resolution looks like a real tribute to the adventures previously mentioned. And not only this, also, we have managed to develop a mixed battle system between mentioned games, so The Adventures of The Black Hawk will have a sword battle system





xx The Book

The book by Alexander Dumas titled The Black Tulip published in 1850 and set in the Netherlands (hence the chosen flower) is a direct source from which our script born. The De Witt brothers, under King Louis of France protection, Libro de El Tulipán Negro will find their death under the maddens people of The Hague, who believed they were guilty of conspiracy. But before to die, they left their godson Cornelius some compromising documents that will take him to the jail, where, with they young Rose, will try to get what he most desires in the world: the black tulip bulb. In this way, it was helpful as an influence for the ambient and recreation of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries costumes, as well as to capture the spirit of the characters of that time.
