About the game and the Kickstarter box
"Shakes & Fidget – The Adventure" is a 2D point-and-click adventure. It has nothing to do with the free-to-play mobile/browser game apart from the main characters and the basic setting. You don’t need to know the free-to-play game (or the old web-comic series) to play the adventure game.
"Point-and-Click Adventures" are story-driven games. Exploring cool environments, talking to crazy characters and progress through puzzle solving are main ingredients of all good adventures like “Monkey Island”, “Day of the Tentacle” or “Sam & Max”.
Our previous point-and-click adventure, The Book of Unwritten Tales 2
, follows this formula as well. "Shakes & Fidget - The Adventure" will be faster and crazier than BoUT2!
If you are still unsure what this could mean from a gameplay point of view, have a look at >>this video<<

Who are Shakes & Fidget?
“Shakes & Fidget” are the two main characters from the webcomic “Shakes & Fidget”, created by Marvin Clifford und Oskar Pannier. The webcomic is a parody to several fantasy and MMO tropes and was made into a browsergame in 2009.
We always loved the comics and we think a point-and-click adventure would be a great way to explore the world and the characters in a way the browsergame can’t.
The Exclusive Kickstarter Box
We recieved a lot of questions about the Kickstarter Box!
We're taking our game boxes VERY serious, because we want them to look impressive on your shelf. We also try to fill them with things you actually want!
As an example, here are the boxes from our last three Kickstarter games.
As for the boxes for "Shakes & Fidgets - The Adventure" - we'll put as much into the box as possible and we'll be in contact with you as a box-backer (while designing the box) to make it the coolest box possible.
