Coming Soon

Can You find All of the Gold?

Follow the trails, abandoned ruins, and caves as you solve puzzles and try to avoid traps laid by a bandit. Travel through breathtaking scenes that showcase clay sculpted characters.

This is not a game of action and shooting, but is peppered with fun surprises.

If you like to wander and figure things out while you hunt for treasures of gold in more than 15 fascinating Inca sites, this game is for you whether you are a seasoned adventure gamer or are new to the genre. There are 3 levels of play which can be switched at any time during play. We hope that beyond the fun, The Ransom of Atawallpa will inspire you to dig deeper into the many mysteries of the Incas still hidden in Perú.

About the Game

This game features in-game hints and a journal where clues and educational information may be kept for reference. This game also provides a map system to allow jumping to other scenes where an item may have been missed. At the end of the game journal there is a showcase where the awards are displayed for each of the 15 Tambos (Inca sites) successfully completed.

System requirements will be posted upon release and be available for Windows, macOS and iPad iOS.

The Creative Team

The designer and producer of this game (along with others from the team) traveled to Perú to gather materials and to photograph the images used to produce the graphics. Team members sculpted characters with colored clay to create the main characters.
