Encodya is a point-and-click experience about a youthful orphan named Tina and her guardian robot Sam-53, who live in a wet, grey near-future world that looks somewhat like the dystopian Los Angeles of Blade Runner. It’s being created by Nicola Piovesan and Chaosmonger Studio, and while the release is as yet far off—Piovesan presently anticipates that it to be prepared sometime in the second half of 2020—a demo is accessible at the present time, and it’s actually quite good.
Playing is extremely straightforward: Click on a location to move (double-click to run), or click on an item to raise up a context-based menu that will empower you to analyze an object, talk to it, pick it up, or use it. There’s a tad of randomization to keep things hopping, and “huge amounts of Easter eggs and hidden secrets to find.”
The demo really happens the night before the full Encodya adventure starts, as Tina attempts to make her way back to her shelter. It appears to be very preliminary, similar to a pre-game tutorial—the script makes various “jokes” about being caught in a video game, for example, and the whole plot is actually about coming up with bus fare.
Yet it additionally happens to be very good: The dialog is senseless in spots and it’s clearly not going to reform the point-and-click genre, yet the interface is perfect and simple and the artwork is gorgeous. If the developers can back it up with great dialog and a decent story, Encodya could demonstrate to be a very impressive point-and-click experience.
Encodya actually rose up out of a successful 2018 Kickstarter for an animated short film called Robot Will Protect You, which emerged from Piovesan’s 2017 project (likewise successful on Kickstarter) called Attack of the Cyber Octopuses. The Robot Will Protect You battle promised a video game as a stretch objective; the goal was achieved, and so here we are.
