Francium: The King Returns
A downloadable game for Windows
This is my entry for the #104AdvChal $104 Adventure Game Challenge
A game by Simon Mesnard https://linktr.ee/simonmesnard
This game is the direct sequel to Francium: A Museum for Robots, created during Yaz Solo Jam in August 2020. It is recommended to play the 1st chapter before but it is not necessary. You can still understand the story, the project was made on purpose to be played without knowing the previous chapter.
"Francium is a grotesque comedy adventure taking place in a world of robots, in a museum-city that can remind of beautiful villages of France in the old world, before mankind disapeared from the surface of the Earth. Except for one human: the King of Francium, creator of all robots, is still alive! ... Alive? In this chapter, you play as the King who's a little overwhelmed by his new situation... Doesn't he deserve it?"
I developed it in 2 weeks from scratch, with a few existing assets (see credits) and all new ones (scenes: village/castle, etc...). The game is quite short unfortunately (15 to 30 minutes).
Made with 3dsmax, Unity and Adventure Creator. It is my first project with Unity and AC, my purpose was to learn it as much as possible in 2 weeks! I'm very happy that I could finish a playable version in time for the Jam.
Move with keyboard (zqsd or wasd, or arrows), interact with left click. If you are asked to type a text, write directly with your keyboard. There is no inventory, I didn't have the time to include items to use. Show options menu with Escape.

In your top 5 of the week? Wow it's an honor, thanks a lot RafGamer! I'm really glad you liked it.
Ah!! Thanks a lot for making a gameplay video!
I see you couldn't finish the game. The riddle of the monk is a bit too tricky :( In the next update I'll try to think of a way to include a hint (actually Robocop is supposed to give one, but he doesn't)
Thanks to your video I have seen several other small bugs that I should try to fix. Cool!
Very interesting. What developing platform have you used?
The map 'riddle' got me stuck.. gave it the ol' college try but eh... I did like the change of perspective from the first part.
Oh yes the map riddle is a little vicious, I must admit :) But Robocop should give you a useful hint!
An enchanting entertaining little adventure! And a worthy sequel to Francium! I wish you to get all the appreciation that you deserve Simon, thank you for ever for these precious gifts out of your inehaustible imagining!
Oh Marina, thank for ever to you! It's so much happier to create games when there are great people like you to play and enjoy them!
