Description

Elroy And The Aliens is a classical hand-drawn adventure game, beautifully animated in 2D and inspired by Saturday morning cartoons and old LucasArts classics. We follow three pivotal characters (engineer Elroy, journalist Peggie and archaeologist Diego) through a story about loss, betrayal, growth and discovery. The pursuit of deeply personal goals leads our heroes to amazing archaeological discoveries and new, exciting worlds.

History

A couple of years ago, we decided to focus all of our energy on one game. This is it, just a very sincere attempt at pouring all our passion, ideas and creativity and love into a lovely adventure game that can be enjoyed on the keyboard and touch screen alike.
