At the moment I'm working on a new Adventure-project. It'll be in the Mystery-Genre.
Backgrounds, Story, Puzzles, Cutscenes, Portraits, Characters and GUIs are already made.
I still need Animations, Soundeffects, dialogues, Voices and Music.
The game will be in english as well as in german.

Story:

During the Mayor elections the candidate Carl Elmstead(leader of the cosmopolitan party) gets murdered.
The police says it was a robber who killed him but his son Richard Elmstead does believe that the main aim was to get rid of
the politician(Carl Elmstead). Richards starts an investigation on his own what makes him more and more the victim of
an underground organisation. His investigation leads him to a lot of places and also to Iran.

Concept:
On one hand I wanted to use the concept of Gabriel Knight. I mean mixing historical facts and mythology or fantasy.
On the other hand I thought it would be nice to make a adventuregame adaption of "Shadow over Innsmouth" by Lovecraft.
Now I think I've found a way to combine these two things.
Maybe you know the conspiracy theory about the reptilians. Of course I don't believe in this stuff but I thought
this has the potential for a Horror or Mystery story.
In GK there are also Fantasy-Figures(vampires, werewolfes, Zombies(Voodoo)) which are presented very realisticly.
Now I want to do the same thing with reptilians.
It should be believable not corny. The reptilians are visually also very similar to the fishpeople in Shadow over Innsmouth.

Visually it's a mix of Gabriel Knight1 and Clocktower(SNES) as you can see here:

You might wanna use "insert zoomable image" to let us, you know, zoom the images.
Add spoiler tag for Hidden:
Not trying to come across as a dick here, it just happens.:wink:

Very nice. You've made progress since John Sinclair. I'm curious to see this in motion.

The guy at the center of the 4th picture reminds me of Mads Mikkelsen

Really like this, both the concept and the visuals! I for one welcome our reptilian overlords. (Seriously though, I find that sort of conspiracy stuff incredibly intriguing and have included some of that material in my own adventure games)
