Description

Four Last Things is a point-and-click adventure game made from Renaissance-era paintings and public domain recordings of classical music. It is about sin, and the Four Last Things – Death, Judgement, Heaven and Hell – and strives to be intelligent and ridiculous in equal measures. It's kind of like if Monkey Island had been made in 16th century Flanders, by a time-travelling Monty Python fanboy...

History

Four Last Things started out as a submission for Game Jolt's Adventure Jam 2016. The prototype received a Judges Pick and was voted Best Game Overall in the public vote. I then went on to run a Kickstarter campaign to help fund the full game. The prototype was also shown at last years AdventureX in London, and has featured in a number of terrible dreams I had recently where my life falls apart around me. Since the Kickstarter project ended I have been working on Four Last Things, all alone (sad face), pretty much full-time. I'm flipping out right now.

Hello my name's Joe Richardson. I make small logic-driven worlds because the overwhelming chaotic disgusting beautiful unfathomable mess of the real world scares the shit out of me. I call my worlds games and you can play with them and you might have fun. Wouldn't that be nice?
