Lost Chronicles of Zerzura

Join a young inventor on the expedition of his life. A remarkable journey from Spain, across the Mediterranean, to distant Africa; a quest to save his own soul and lives of those he holds most dear.

Two brothers operate a workshop that is well ahead of its time in Barcelona of 1514. It's the time of the golden epoch of the Renaissance, a time of discoveries and inventions; but also the brutal age of the Inquisition.

One brother puts all his efforts into building a flying machine, while the other dreams of Egypt and mysterious art treasures. The advanced ideas and exotic fantasies weaved by the pair arouses the suspicions of the Grand Inquisitor.

Quite suddenly their small world is turned upside down as one brother is taken away by the Inquisition; leaving the other alone to search for answers that will set his imprisoned sibling free.

Explore the ravishingly beautiful and detailed locations of this remarkable adventure as you become immersed in this mysterious medieval tale and solve a unique combination of puzzles, mini-games, and other challenges that are perfectly integrated within this breathtaking storyline.

Evade further attacks by the inquisition, and forge strong alliances with those you meet along the way. Trek across different countries and cultures and eventually to the legendary desert city of ZERZURA, where an ancient terror guards over powerful secrets - and poses the greatest challenge of all!

    A more open environmental structure and a larger amount of hotspots per screen, and it would be perfect. Even so, it’s a stunning game that must not go missing from your collection. [March 2013]

  • Quotation forthcoming.

  • So far I haven't seen an adventure where the puzzles were so plausible and seamlessly integrated into the main plot. Unfortunately character design and direction in general are far less perfect.

  • Ultimately, Zerzura is a more than noteworthy graphic adventure with a very enjoyable story and greatly integrated puzzle. Despite not being visually remarkable and having a low difficulty, this is a recommended adventure.

  • The setting's got potential, after all, a legendary city was the right recipe for Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis 20 years ago. The game doesn't quite live up to it though. Badly animated characters and worse still, passages where you'd wish for a cutscene rather than a riddle for a better pace in storytelling. A shame, because Lost Chronicles of Zerzura captures the flair of the Renaissance and thus time of the inquisition well. That alone makes it worth a look.

  • Though it doesn't chart new territory with its premise, Lost Chronicles of Zerzura combines all the right elements to create a thoroughly enjoyable old-school adventure.

  • With its fresh setting Zerzura offers exactly the kind of more serious point & click adventure I´d like to see more often. An inspired, well crafted expedition into the underrepresented realm of the historically inspired adventures.

  • CD-Action

    It has some issues (i.e. sluggish animations) but fortunately they are not too annoying to take away the joy of following a well-written story. [CD-Action 02/2013, p.48]

  • The developers of Lost Chronicles of Zerzura have Mata Hari and two Black Mirror sequels under their belt already, but this game is an adventure in the same way as a blueprint is an airplane.
