Point & Click adventure ‘Athanor 2’ coming to the Amiga & ST’
Athanor 2 – The Legend of the Birdmen is the hotly anticipated 16-bit sequel to the 2015-2016 game Athanor 1 — The Awakening that was released for several 8-bit systems, including the Amstrad CPC, ORIC 1 and Commodore 64.
As the back of the box says – ‘The adventure continues… You've uncovered the mysteries of the abbey in Athanor 1 – The Awakening – it's time to embark on a journey of discovery around the world, in search of your origins'
Unlike the first game, Athanor 2 is a point and click adventure with a classic command interface and is chock full of enriched dialogue, colourful characters, puzzles and four different worlds to explore.
Athanor 2 has been lovingly created by a dedicated team of developers and artists with the author of the original game, Eric Safar at the helm. The game also features some absolutely
stunning hand-drawn artwork that has been digitised, coloured, and then downscaled to Amiga and Atari specs – the end result looks amazing.
An eventual release is due very soon, so make sure you check-in at the developer's website, safargames.fr, for regular updates. There will also be a physical boxed release that features not one, but four! ‘feelies' along with two disks, a manual and some other intriguing card pieces.
