hello all, newbie here. couple of questions.
1) pick any ( or a couple of) Wintermute games and try to guess which demographic you think
it was most successful in and why ??
I pick the Art of Murder (City Interactive) - even though it has a female lead I think because it has an action feel
to it, Males over 25 might be their demographic.
Lost Crown (by Darkling Room) - definitely a cult following AND I would guess female under 30
(having a Ouija board in a game is a sure winner for a cult following !! )
2) Do you think it's possible to hold the audience attention in an adventure game, that does not involve a dead person.
I don't believe it's possible. Even when I play adventure games, if it doesn't involve someone dying I will probably lose
interest. I use to try and convince myself that a happy go lucky game full of cotton candy and buttery popcorn
would hold my interest - it won't.
