What if all known fairy tales are just summaries of visits to a parallel universe? How would you find yourself in a place where you could buy a cauliflower carriage right at the market? Or pocket-sized mirrors that talk? Or anaesthetizing apples? Or even wireless crystal balls programmed to tell you your future? What if your Fairy Godmother turned out to be a whiny creep by the name of Bill? Would you share a drink with random inventors drinking away their problems in the company of a just-unbottled genie?
Sounds unbelievable, doesn't it? Good.
Alibabe is an adventure game set in a universe where fables intertwine with sci-fi, inhabited by many-a-character known from stories by Hans Christian Andersen, Charles Perrault, or the Grimm brothers.
Packed along with a dose of Monty-Python-esque humour à la Terry Pratchett, the game is a delicacy for any fan of the genre.
