Developed in 1990 by the Lankhor studio,
Maupiti Island is the sequel of their precedent game, the manor of Mortevielle.

Tilt d'or Canal+ and Génération 4 "best game of the year", nominated in several countries,
with tens of thousands of copies sold across Europe,
Maupiti Island is still one of the biggest French adventure games ever made. 

30 years later, it's hard to find games that put as much energy
to immerge the player in a deep,
complex and captivating story.
Productions with that level of quality can be counted on the fingers of one hand. 

Which led us to wonder : What if we rethink Maupiti, keeping his soul,
while endowing it with today's technologies?


To allow old and young players alike, to (re) immerse themselves in its complex narration

within a reworked, re-sounded, re-adapted environment?

The starting point of a trip already started. ;-)

After Mortevielle, Jérôme Lange is back. 

Fleeing a bitter Paris, the detective accepts the invitation of an old friend and embarks for Japan,
aboard the sailboat of a client.  But a hurricane interrupts his trip in the middle of the Indian Ocean,
and forces him to dock on Maupiti, an island with paradisiacal landscapes, well known to sailors. 

A lull of short duration : right after waking up, a woman, Maggie, comes to ask for help.
One of her employees has disappeared! 

Jerome decides to postpone his holidays to lead the investigation ... 

And begins to understand that Maupiti, his natives and his regulars hide many secrets.
An investigation that will include a brothel, a murder, pirates, opium, weapons traffickers ...
And the "Bamboo", a fishing boat arrived during the night to escape the storm,
whose crew seems suspicious...

The investigation is going to be hectic.

The island of Maupiti is a character by itself : Exotic, mysterious,
surrounded by white sand beaches and local legends, ...
Its landscapes are the perfect host for Jerome's investigation...

Prepare to confront deep and complex people (11 different characters!),
and to adapt to different psychological profiles and attitudes,
that will also evolve during your investigation!

 

While keeping the main characteristics of the original game,
many new features will improve your experience,
making it even more immersive and enjoyable!

WHY KICKSTARTER

Currently, we are five members working on the game. Enough to start the project,
and put it on the right path, but we will need more people to complete each of the next steps ;-)

The money raised during this campaign will give us the opportunity to create a game
that lives up to our ambitions with higher quality.  
This campaign will also allow the studio to create a community around the project,
and get everybody feedback during the development.
