THE CREW

Hijacked Minds Studios is a software development team specialized in point’n’click adventure games, consisting of Lorenzo and Giada Erba (lead programmers) and Davide Civelli (level & characters graphic designer), based in Villa Guardia (CO) in Italy.

In early ‘90s, the team completed the development of a first-person, western-style adventure, “The West Bandits”, on the Commodore Amiga® platform, which however will never be published.

Over the past two years Hijacked Minds Studios has been developing a new adventure, in the style of the most classic point’n’click adventure games, but without following the path of “pixel art”, preferring instead to develop high definition graphics, the developers , use dedicated software such as Newtek Lightwave 3D® (used since Amiga times), Daz Studio® (for the characters and their respective movements), Corel Video Studio® for the intro and cutscenes, as well as Adobe Photoshop® for the interface and to mix everything.

Hijacked Minds Studios chose Visionaire Studio 5® as game engine, as it was specifically designed for the development of games that the team had in mind to produce.

From this development effort comes “Glimpse of Madness”, a classic point and click adventure with an ‘80s and ‘90s adventure production style.

We need your support

We have made significant progress in the development of Glimpse of Madness.
However, we need your help. Our purpose is to exceed our usual limits! Making a game, even indie, requires a huge amount of resources, energy and time. In Glimpse of Madness, we want to improve the graphics furthermore, bring new ideas, improve the puzzles and make the game longer. What you can see in the attached videos and screenshots is a work in progress, but we know that we can do a lot better. The idea of the Kickstarter is to bring a helping hand and make the game not just good, but great!
