Miskatonic
« on: November 13, 2011, 10:10:38 PM »

Hey all. I've basically finished the game I've been working on for a while.  :)
Thanks to everyone on the forum, especially Mnemonic and Metamorphium, for helping me out, directly or indirectly. I am a novice and much of this was new to me.

The game is called Miskatonic, it's a third-person mystery adventure with some comedy and horror loosely inspired by H.P. Lovecraft stories (set on my version of the famous university campus). I'm doing the final testing right now, it's 99.9% done. I wanted to wait until I had things basically done before announcing anything.

I'm thinking of going commercial(not sure how yet), and this is just the first episode. I have some work done on other installments, and I'm hoping it might be successful enough to let me finish the long story a little faster.

Anyway, you can see the website here for a basic idea of what it looks like.

Based on Lovecraft universe is an easy sell to me. ;D I find the comedy mix a little bizarre which is probably also a good thing.

Yeah, it's Lovecraft, but more odd than horrifying. I'm not sure how diehard Lovecraft fans appreciate (attempted) comedy. Still, there are a lot of references etc that will hopefully be fun for people who have read a lot of the stories... there's a fair amount of small details to read and examine.

And anyway, there are so many great scary Lovecraft games already, maybe there's room for something different.

Now off to search the forums for advice on setting up an installer!

Hey all
Demo is now up at the site www.miskatonicgame.com. Full version also available for purchase if you're so inclined...

Decided against installation, or any kind of registration, activation. Not sure how that turns out.
Thanks

Had a look at the demo, lots of nice features, I like the background art and the ambience, and some of the jokes.

I didn't get very far, except that I got what was needed by the other female lecturer, I am tempted to buy it if funds allow after christmas perhaps.

Are you planning translating the game?

No plans for translation. There's not much interest in the English version right now!

Congrats on finally releasing your game!!! I totally agree with Odnorf...you just couldn't go wrong with a game set in Miskatonic, in my opinion.  ;)

I'm interested in your game, but the "contact" button in your official webpage doesn't work, and your game is sold by a (mostly) unknown seller. The lack of both any advertesing and contact with your costumers makes me feel there won't probably be any more episodes. Have you tried submitting your game to Desura.com? They mostly sell indie games so I don't they'll refuse yours. It's still not too late for trying.
