If you have fond memories of the Blade Runner adventure game released for PC by Westwood back in 1997 then you might want to sit up and take notice of Ama’s Lullaby. It is a point & click adventure featuring a command-line based hacking game by solo developer, Mercy Ground Creations. The game is currently in the final hours of its Kickstarter campaign and with only three days to go time is running out to become a backer.

Ama’s Lullaby will cast players in the role of Ama, a teenager living on a colony that was constructed for humanity on another planet using machines. The purpose of the colony was to safeguard humanity after the announcement that an asteroid is on a potential collision course with Earth. However, there is obviously more to the story than this and players will help Ama uncover what is really going on. This will be done via traditional point-and-click adventure game methods as players guide Ama around the colony to interact with the human and non-human inhabitants. Mercy Ground Creations also promises that you’ll get to make decisions that can impact the course of events and that all your actions will have consequences. This also comes into play with the hacking feature, where the information and confidential data that you are able to access can potentially be used to blackmail people.

Besides the great looking cyberpunk environments of the game we are looking forward to seeing the dialog system of Ama’s Lullaby in action. According to the developer, you’ll have to pick your questions carefully and anticipate the consequences as your choices are all examined by the system to determine how they influence the NPCs. It will also be interesting to see how the promise of NPCs who show different reactions from one game session to another looks in action. This can really boost the replay value of the game, which is something you’ll want to do thanks to the several possible endings that are promised.

Ama’s Lullaby definitely sounds like an ambitious project for a solo developer, but from what we have seen so far it has the potential to be great. Head on over to the Kickstarter page for more information about the game as well as the rewards, which includes a limited print artbook, game soundtrack, cyberpunk postcards, and limited Cyberpunk USB drive.

Its action-packed, yet puzzle-oriented gameplay made it an instant hit and even people like Alexey Pajitnov counted it amongst their favorite puzzle titles. Although there hasn’t been a shortage of new releases over the years, the last appearance of Lode Runner was back in 2012 on Android and iOS. Thankfully, this is about to change with the upcoming release of Lode Runner Legacy for PC.
