About This Game

The Game


Powers in the Basement is a 5/6 hours long point-and-click adventure game, deliberately reminiscent of the great classics from the 80s / 90s, with a specific sweet spot for LucasArts production.

It's a witty and sometimes surreal game, with clean humor, also suitable for children, set in a pseudo-fantasy world in which the medieval fairytale is punctuated by anachronisms, elements of modernity, and absurd references to nerd pop culture.
It's a challenging game made for puzzle lovers, those who like to have a-ha moments in the shower or while cooking, but we did our best to make it a fair and enjoyable experience for casual gamers as well

If you are a longtime fan of this genre, well... we hope we can bring you back to your childhood for a while.
