I’m going to offend you. I hated The Mysterious Cities Of Gold cartoon. And the Belle & Sebastian cartoon. And Around The World With Willy Fog. And Dogtanian And The Three Muskehounds. Oh my goodness, they looked like cartoons, but they weren’t. They were the dullest, driest series, meandering to nowhere, and at no point did anyone hit anyone else with a frying pan. WHEN IS IT TIME FOR BANANAMAN?!
Which is the perfect introduction to tell you that there’s a Mysterious Cities Of Gold PC game Kickstarter, and it’s almost funded.
The series has actually been recently revived, and with what appears to be a slightly stumbling schedule, a new 26-part run is currently airing in France. It seems a game to go with it is in development on French shores, and the developers are looking for funding to get it on PC, and translate and relocate it for English-speaking humans. They’re after $30k, and already have $24,500, with most of their run to go.
