For your games
Edited by KBlaney: August 2012
I like the “small country town by the water” setting that I found in Google Maps. It seems to me that small towns almost always need a murder mystery, so I might push it in that direction.
As I said in the introduction section, my main goal here is to create a framework that I can use to build multiple games in the future. Specifically, it will be a puzzle adventure game inspired by Cyan World’s
built using ActionScript3 in AIR for Windows and Mac. If there is some time at the end, I’ll also bring it out to Android and iOS.
My probably overly ambitious feature list includes:
hand drawn landscapes
roughly 2 or 3 hours of puzzle based gameplay
less reliance on items and more reliance on interaction with the world
Update: Flash platform is done. Story is written. So, I’m moving this to “Started”.
Story starts as follows. The main character is a vacationing private detective. He wakes up to the sound of the police banging on his door. Hung over with little memory about the previous night, a homicide detective starts asking him questions about a missing woman and the whereabouts of your rental car. It seems your car was found earlier that morning, set ablaze with an as of yet unidentified female victim in the trunk.
The private detective offers his assistance in solving the case, but the homicide detective brushes him off and tells him not to get involved and to not leave town because he is a suspect. After the homicide detective leaves, our hero sets out to investigate the death of the missing woman and try to clear his good name.
Edit: Unfortunately, I got caught up with a real job and stopped working on this. So, I’m moving this to “cancelled”.
Great case for a murder mystery! The image kind of reminds me of the Hitchcock movie Birds.
Now that you mention it, those do sort of look like birds. But no killer birds in this story… oh well.
