The Sundew is a 2D retro-style point'n'click adventure game that will take you into a dark cyberpunk world where the boundaries between good and evil become blurred. The prototype and the story of this game have been strongly inspired by classic LucasArts and Sierra’s games but also by new representatives of the genre (Wadjet eye games, The Last Door, ...), cyberpunk worlds and Sci Fi authors like Philip K. Dick and William Gibson. You'll be playing Anna Isobe, a cyber police officer who lives in Shibukawa, the new capital city of Japan. Her job, however, has become incredibly dull since robots replaced cyber-cops, almost eradicating all crimes. But in spite of the great performances of their AIs, the robots lack one thing they have not been able to acquire throughout the years. They lack… discernment.

The Sundew, a pixel art adventure inspired by cyberpunk

The Sundew is an exciting point'n'click adventure game that will take you into a world where the boundaries between good and evil become blurred. It is inspired by classic games like Sierra' and LucasArts games but also by new representatives of the genre (Wadjet eye games, The Last Door, ...), and cyberpunk worlds.

An old story, in a new world

Embark on a journey back to the glorious days of point'n'click adventure games you enjoyed so much! In a
cyberpunk world full of mysteries and shadows, you'll be immersed in a great story about friendship and
duplicity, highlighted by a unique pixel art style combined with a powerful soundtrack.

The Story - My name is Anna

"The town is dark, rainy and sleepy. I can see its lights through my windows. Shibukawa became the new capital city of Japan, eleven years ago. Its immense town center grew up very quickly, after Tokyo was devastated by a giant tsunami. Life in Shibukawa is pretty safe, since robots replaced cyber-cops and eradicated most crimes. But some of us do not believe in this new evolution. In spite of the great performances of their AIs, they lack one thing they have not been able to acquire throughout the years. They lack… discernment.

My name is Anna. I live here, at 592 Akagimachi Miyama. I am 21 and the best cyber police officer in Shibukawa. The lastest version of what would, what should have been the new cops in Japan. Sometimes I feel very confident, sometimes I feel really bad… but, whatever, no matter what happens, all the time, I feel empty inside. I feel bored. I can't find my place in the middle of these robots.

I have an unusual mission today. I should be excited about it, and, I don't know why, but… I feel that what is going to happen tonight will not really go as expected. On paper, everything looks easy. But when the pressure will be at its highest, if something goes wrong, am I going to make the right decisions?"
