It took 165 years, but The Three Musketeers has finally been faithfully adapted into a video game.
I am happy pleased honoured (and thrilled) to say that Dingo Games has announced its latest project, The Three Musketeers: The Game. Closely following the story of Alexander Dumas’ original masterpiece, The Three Musketeers: The Game is a unique action-adventure-rpg-story-swashbuckling game for Mac and Windows, coming in August 2009.
I am very excited about this game. It has taken a long time to do (there was a lot of research and travelling on top of all the actual ‘game work’) and I am extremely pleased with The Three Musketeers: The Game. I think Alexandre Dumas, père, would be proud.
In the near future I’ll post more images, and talk a little bit about the project (concerning the story, the artwork, historical accuracies/inaccuracies and of course the characters). I’ll do my best to bring a little taste of Dumas’ early 17th century to you (until the game is released, and then you can experience it yourself).
And for those who don’t know, Cardinal Richelieu is the main meany, the primary antagonist in The Three Musketeers: The Game (and the book). Dumas’ Richelieu differs from ‘the real one’ (as most of his characters do), but both Richelieus were undoubtedly powerful men in France.
(p.s. more about the game and all that press jazz here.)
