[Menorca, Spain] May 21, 2024: One week after releasing the game’s debut gameplay trailer, retro-focused Spanish indie developer Straynus has unveiled the physical Super Nintendo and Game Boy compatible versions of their upcoming Maniac Mansion-inspired point-and-click adventure, Cronela’s Mansion.

Limited to 2,000 copies worldwide, the standard edition copies of Cronela’s Mansion are exclusive to backers of the game’s upcoming Kickstarter campaign, which will launch at the end of the summer. Inside the box, you’ll find a shiny new cartridge to feed your hungry Super Nintendo or Game Boy, a full-color manual, a keychain, and a poster featuring a map of Rodsem Land, the fictional city where Cronela’s Mansion takes place.

But that’s not all! In addition to the standard edition versions of Cronela’s Mansion revealed today, Kickstarter backers have the exclusive opportunity to secure Collector’s Edition copies. These special editions come with a host of bonus items, including an exclusive figure, a soundtrack, posters, stickers, and much more, adding even more value to your support of this exciting throwback to the glory days of Lucasfilms’ SCUMM-powered adventures!

Cronela’s Mansion is currently in development and will launch in 2025. The different versions of the game will be compatible with the Nintendo Entertainment System, Super Nintendo, Game Boy, Game Boy Color, Game Boy Advance, PC, and Switch.

A labor of love over four years in the making, Cronela’s Mansion is a spiritual successor to Lucasfilms’ fan-favorite point-and-click adventure Maniac Mansion. Featuring open-world gameplay, players explore the fictional city of Rodsem Land along with the game’s titular mansion in a non-linear quest as they solve puzzles, interact with a colorful cast of characters through a dynamic dialogue system, and uncover the sprawling estate’s secrets. With over 50 unique rooms to scour for clues and tons of hidden easter eggs to uncover, Cronela’s Mansion is a must-play experience that no fan of the classic point-and-click adventures from the 80s and 90s should miss. 

About Cronela’s Mansion:

In the depths of a majestic mansion, a story of witchcraft, lies, and betrayal is concealed, laden with nightmares that defy all known logic. The mansion harbors secrets, where the line between the real and the fantastic fades away. Each room is a portal to a shadowy world where the truth is as elusive as light in the darkness.

Will you dare to discover the truth hidden behind the doors of this spine-chilling place? The choice is yours, but be careful; once you cross the threshold, Cronela’s Mansion could reveal more than you are willing to face.

Enter with caution as this mysterious place unveils its enigmas only to the bravest, those willing to lose track of time and their own sanity.
