Belpaese

Homecoming

A graphic adventure about the comic, quaint, surreal world of Italian politics!

Why a Graphic Adventure Game in Italy?

Despite his many flaws (actually, because of them) a lazy, good-for-nothing, two-faced guy is rewarded with fame, women and power.
Where could something like this happens? In Italy, of course!
BELPAESE is a 2D Point & Click Graphic Adventure. The first episode of three, BELPAESE:HOMECOMING, shows our "hero”, Peppe Nappiotto, facing the biggest challenge of his young life: how to deal with his mother's disappointment as he returns home to Sicily after 10 years spent at Milan University with no degree, no job and no money.

A game about politics?! How boring!

Politics is admittedly an unusual topic for a video game, unless you're talking about Italian politics. No other country can boast a political system so full of crazy, laughable twists and turns (though recently, the United States may have taken that honor). No other country has been ruled by such buffoons, notable for being deficient in brains, a strong work ethic, not to mention being decent human beings. You know what we're talking about--they're the bullies who grew up stealing other kids' lunch money, flunked out of university and, having tried all possible shortcuts to wealth, finally find their calling by jumping into politics. The best part about this circus full of grotesque characters is that you can't help laughing at them.

Talking about brokes...

The writers, designers, programmers and musicians for BELPAESE: HOMECOMING are two brothers who, in spite of their backgrounds (a nuclear engineer and a theoretical physicist) have decided to invest their miserable savings in Peppe the politician's adventure, exposing themselves to the huge risk of becoming just like their character. But at least we've laughed along the way--and you will, too. [The reason is the one that moves the mountains: passion!]
We hope you’ll like BELPAESE: HOMECOMING!
Vote for DDP: Democratic Dictatorship Party! Vote for Peppe!

When and how!

BELPAESE: HOMECOMING will be available on October 16, 2017 for Windows, Mac, Android, and IOS on Steam store, Apple Store and Google Play Store. In English, Italian and Russian language!
