From the genre description of "adventure, comedy, fantasy" I assume it will be like Monkey Island (I've never played Maniac Mansion so no clue there) which definitely was not a platformer. However, the description does say that one will have a choice of picking a team of three from seven adventurers, which to me sounds almost like it might be a role-playing type of game and this is why I haven't been able to make up my mind yet. RPGs are not for me! On the other hand, if it does turn out to be a platformer, I might try it, but from the screenshots I can't see any way to jump so that idea intrigues me.
