But, while we patiently wait for the last Deponia game to wrap up the series, Daedalic is trying it’s hands on something else called The Night of the Rabbit, a game featuring a young boy who wants to become a magician and finds himself in a magical world full of talking animals.

The Night of the Rabbit begins with one of the most surreal experiences in a game

The game begins with one of the most surreal experiences in a game, starting off with a mysterious person bewildered with regret only for the game to jump right into another scene where a tall Rabbit figure finds himself in a foggy area with a mysterious character where they both try to find the beginning of the story.
Jerry finds himself in the strange, fantastical world full of animals who can walk and talk just like humans.
This is where the protagonist, Jerry Hazlenut, makes an introduction. An eager beaver who wants to become a magician. He finds himself at the tail end of summer with very little time for adventuring. Through strange circumstances, however, Jerry meets up with the tall Rabbit figure, who decides to train Jerry in the arts of magic. This is where Jerry finds himself in the strange, fantastical world full of animals who can walk and talk just like humans.
While this is all fine and happy, it’s clear that the plot will start going into a direction where things won’t be as joyful, which doesn’t help that a lot of the animal folk you meet in this game are already dealing with personal issues.
With this being a point and click adventure game, there are – of course – challenges that involve puzzles and clicking on certain items against other items to solve these puzzles. With Night of the Rabbit, it’s going for a unique angle, in this regard, with magical items that can let you see special things that the naked eye cannot see, giving more depth to the already colorful world.
The Journey is Soon…
Daedelic Entertainment is clearly excited for this new release, with a lot of the fans joining in this excitement. What we’ve seen so far in The Night of the Rabbit is a unique and exciting world that many of us can’t wait to be able to explore. The Night of the Rabbit is scheduled to be released on May 29th, 2013.
