Description

The Gentleman is a musical narrative game, set in the time around the Great Depression, that follows the story of Fred and Lisa. Our hero, Fred, is a street performer, and a perfect Gentleman. Lisa is the fun-loving daughter of the very wealthy Johnathan Joseph Harrington Price the 3rd, a proud, hard working, self made man obsessed with getting a coat of arms and being invited to have dinner with Royalty. For this very reason he wants Lisa to marry the Count Grossenstein of Teuffelstein. Fred and Lisa first meet at his street performance, where immediately sparks fly. The Count is quick to interrupt but, due to a series of cascading events our Gentleman becomes involved in the wedding preparations. As Fred and Lisa grow closer, It is evident that there is something more to the Count than meets the eye. Will Lisa and the Count be married, or will true love prevail? What is the Count hiding? Will Johnathan Joseph Harrington Price the IIIrd ever be accepted by royalty? Play The Gentleman to find out!

History

The Gentleman is about music, spreading joy and the love for life. The game heavily draws inspiration from the golden age of Hollywood Musicals featuring Fred Astaire, Gene Kelly but also pays tribute to greats like Buster Keaton, Harold Lloyd and Charlie Chaplin. The Gentleman initially started as an in-house pet project. With an incredibly talented musician and a number of classical hollywood musical lovers in the team, the uniqueness and appeal of the concept was instant and unanimous. The game soon received project development support from The Danish Film Institute Spilordningen. Eventually, it's further development has been made possible with the support of the Creative Europe Programme - MEDIA of the European Union, and investment from CAPNOVA Game Invest. We wish to complete its development by Summer of 2017.
