This game made me curious of the original story about Captain Nemo and as i searched around the bet I stumbled upon this kickstarter project that is now live. I can imagine more people here being interested in the background story for this game and the illustrations look fabulous. If you like me are on the lookout for a version of the book just go check it out:

It's a shame that he doesn't use a better translation, although it's understandable. The original ones, buthchered though they are, are free for use.

Here's a recent article worth noting on 20,000 Leagues:

The Kickstarted illustrated edition would go well with the excellent translation and notes by Oxford Classics.

(Journey to the Centre of the Earth was really butchered upon initial translations, and it's only recently been done well. I think the Baldick translation is the best.)

Thanks for the post!

The illustrations are great, very in style with the writing time of the book.

Interestingly enough, I just read 2LUtS, and you don't learn much about Nemo at all. I think you have to read a book called The Mysterious Island to actually learn much about him, which I haven't read yet.

That looks neat. Almost Mike Mignola-esque.

The illustrations look great, but the price with shipping is very high.
