A Trail of Ooze is a Point-and-Click adventure about Majros, the cow, who lives on a small farm in the middle of the Swedish forests. After a spill of genetically engineered chemicals, all animals and plants mutate and gain humanlike consciousness. Meanwhile, the farmer has been kidnapped by agents from an evil agrochemical corporation - who is responsible for the spill. So Majros, together with Hilma, the hen, set out on a conspiratory and adventurous rescue mission.
The game is full of subtle (and some not so subtle) references to the human footprint on earth and we want to raise discussion about political, social and environmental issues through the medium of games and a lot of humour.
Majros is the hero of our story. Ideally she would prefer to live her life in peace and quiet on her small swedish farm, as it has always been. But, when her beloved farmer suddenly disappears, she is forced to embark on an adventurous journey. Sarcastic eye rolls aside, the cow is soon made aware that she cannot make it alone against the insidious corporation.
Intellicrops is a new product being developed by the evil agrochemical corporation, which follows the current trend of smart technology. It is a fertilizer of sorts that is designed to generate a bio-artificial intelligence within crops. Though the company promises vast advantages, including the plant being able to adapt to environmental changes while fending weeds and pests, possible harmful side-effects remain entirely unknown up to today.
