What is it about?
Be Competent. Critical. Careful
In the darkness enveloping a city like any other, five exotic plants are the victims of a shocking event. There's no doubt: it’s a multiple plant murder.
The city is not particularly alarmed by the tragic incident, but a multi-billionaire is willing to pay an outrageous amount of money to solve the mystery.
And who, if not Detective Gallo, can accept the challenge (and the generous advance of his client)?
For the most cynical and sarcastic detective there is, a case that starts out as trivial domestic abuse will turn out to be the most intricate investigation he and his cactus(!) have ever seen...
Detective Gallo is a point&click, comic-noir adventure that is entirely hand-illustrated and hand-animated. Its protagonist is a feathered and grumpy private eye struggling with a very tricky case, bizarre characters, and puzzles that will put his insight and patience to the test.
Why we launched this campaign
RULE #57 OF GALLO
To do things right, sometimes you need to ask for help. Of you, backers!
“Detective Gallo” is facing his most difficult investigation: the cynical bird is almost ready to deal with the perils of the case entrusted to him by the bizarre Phil Cloro… but he needs your help!
The expenses to complete the development of the game are still many (nicer and longer animations, more elaborate cutscenes, English and Italian dubbing, and much more!) and the team needs 15.000€ to realize a product of the quality you all deserve.
In exchange, you can bring home lots of goodies and gadgets, and even “participate” in the game with the exclusive rewards we’re proposing!
