Baobab’s Mausoleum is a JRPG inspired by Twin Peaks

All right, please remain seated because there’s a lot going on with this one. Baobab’s Mausoleum [official site] is an upcoming episodic, sometimes point-and-click, sometimes JRPG about a vampire eggplant FBI agent called Watrucio investigating a town known as Flamingo’s Creek which only appears every 25 years within the confines of a nightmare. Look, I know. You think you have it bad? I’m the one trying to explain it on a Monday morning. Luckily, there’s a trailer that does some of that for me. Use your eyes to see it.

It’s inspired by Twin Peaks, Monkey Island and Zelda Link’s Awakening DX, says the developer, which is a very specific Zelda game to name check. Here you’ll be helping agent Watrucio escape from the nightmarish town, which we’re told includes inhabitants such as wendigos, monsters and “cosmic laser chickens”. It’s planned to be broken up into three episodes, the first of which is called “Ovnifagos Don’t Eat Flamingos”. OVNI is the acronym for UFO in Spanish (Objeto Volador No Identificado), which makes sense as developer Jacob Jazz is based in Madrid. So Ovnifago is something like “UFOphage”. Not sure where the flamingos come in. Not sure about any of this, to be honest.

There’s no release date as yet, this is strictly a “coming soon” type deal. But it looked strange and I know how you like eating loads of biscuits and looking at unusual things.
