    Return of Spanish publisher Erbe Software as a re-release label? The website says this new company is founded at the end of 2018, as a subsidiary of some financial company. (And their Twitter account is suspended?)

    Director's Cut release (2010) of The Abbey:





    There's a (supposedly) non-DC version on Steam released by Strategy First.


    And comics based adventure games also made by Alcachofa Soft, only one of them is available in English.

    And La Fuga (Fugitive), an obscure isometric adventure game about prison breaking, Spanish only:

    I remember The Abbey, it was a broken mess when it was released way back when. Hopefully it is fixed now.

    Goddamn, I played nearly all of these games so long ago... The Mortadelo y Filemon games were hilarious, while La Fuga was a classic shareware title that I never managed to finish. I have no idea how did this arrive to Steam.

    I played what's there of FoxTail and now waiting for them to finish it (I hope they will). Yeah it's pretty simplistic but the cozy kyrandia-like feeling and extra lore scattered around the game makes up for it. And I feel game is going to step from light into shadow with its themes the further it would go on.

    Spaniards and Catalan rejoice!
    As well as those that know the comic who aren't one of the above.

    I just wish it was and RPG. The setting description sounds so awesome for an RPG campaign.

    Looks like we have to see how Cyberpunk 2077 turns out. Same futuristic setting with an RPG side.

    It says challenging puzzles. So I assume this is not a walking sim?
