Dirty Split - Announcement (image heavy)
« on: December 13, 2007, 01:06:12 PM »

Hello muties,

I'd like to announce my work on Dirty Split, a detective story set in the early 60ies. Alan Baxter, a private investigator, is commissioned to investigate the murder of a plastic surgeon. A prime suspect is soon found and everything seems to fall in place, but somehow there seems to be a lot more to the story...

Inspired by the work of Josh Agle a.k.a. SHAG this game tries to revive the buzzing and stylish life in the 60ies. And to be fun to play along the way :)
The game will be released on my website for free download, and maybe also in an extended full speech version + extras on CD at cost price (depending on how well it is received).

Screenshots:


Key features:

  • surprising original plot
  • resolution of 800 x 600 (with a couple of scrolling screens)
  • about 23 screens
  • 19 interactive characters
  • german and english version

Actually, I'm looking for a talented music composer to lend the game some catchy tunes that fit the style of the era. Something jazzy, funky, classy, yet unobtrusive. Think 'Ocean's Eleven', Nicola Conte, Ursula 1000 or Pink Martini, for example.

- Uwe

Wow, cool style. Reminded me of No One Lives Forever immediately (well, there aren't that many games set in 60s anyway). What is the current completion status of the project?

Good luck ::thumbup

Thanks :) I love NOLF and its style.

About 40% of the game are completely playable and I plan to reach 100% by march / april 2008. I'll also need a composer and voice actors, and there's still a lot of character animation to be done. Since I'm doing this alone and in my spare time, it will take a while.

I'll release the game once it's all done. Given the compact length of the game a demo wouldn't make a lot of sense. ;)

Mir gefällt auch schon ganz wunderbar, was man da so sehen kann...
Würde gerne für dich Beta testen, wenn du soweit bist. Wegen der Musik, kann ich mal probieren ob ich was hinkrieg, normalerweise geh ich mehr in die elektronische Richtung.
Wobei das macht Ursula1000 auch. Kannst ja mal in meine Musik reinhören www.myspace.com/mazeamaze

Short form in english: I like the art and would offer my help as beta tester and musican.

Ich antworte mal auf Englisch, der Fairness halber. Wär ja sonst unsportlich ;)

Ursula 1000 has modern beats and goes electronic sometimes, but I was referring to the underlying style which is usually very retro. If you think you can pull that retro style off then I'd love to listen to an example, yeah. Get in touch with me.

I listened to the music on your myspace profile, and I like 'Wahlloses Geplaenkel'. It doesn't fit in with the game itself, but it would be a perfect background music for extra features. Tutorial videos? Videos with concept artwork? If I do something like that I'll come back to you :)

Hallo Schnuffel,

auch von mir ein Lob! Gefällt mir gut, vor allem finde ich die Farb-Harmonien gelungen und der daraus resultierende Style. Ich wünsche Dir weiterhin frohes Werkeln und Durchhaltevermögen für das Projekt. Hättest Du einen alternden Rock-Gitarristen gesucht, hätte ich mich vielleicht angeboten ;D.

Gruß

@Pixelschmied

Wenn die Reaktion auf das Spiel positiv ausfällt, wird das sicher nicht mein letztes Projekt bleiben. Dann ergibt sich bei zukünftigen Spielen vielleicht die Gelegenheit für Rockgitarristen egal welchen Alters ;D

@Schnuffel

Bis dahin werde ich meine Schnabeltasse auf Hochglanz halten und hoffen, dass derweil der Verschleiß von jungen Schwestern im Rahmen bleibt.

In diesem Sinne - Keep on rockin  ::rock

Schönen Abend noch,

I've thrown together a video that shows a bit of the creation process behind one of the screens: http://www.dreamagination.org/

Hope you'll enjoy it :)
