Completed Game Announcements / Oz Orwell and the Exorcist

It's been three years since his misadventures at Angst Mansion. Oz Orwell, owner of the website Ghosts & Mansions, is desperate.

His work consists of visiting places presumed to be haunted with his video camera and documenting apparitions or suspicious noises. To tell you the truth, nothing has ever happened during his on-site investigations (unless we include Angst Mansion, but nothing was documented on that occasion), and Oz has always had to fabricate his videos with fake audio and cheap-looking computer graphics. We said Oz is desperate; in fact, his website is no longer a success. It's got to the point where no one trusts his productions and the greatest horror of all is about to hit him: closing down Ghosts & Mansions and getting a real job. A real job...

That's the mother of all fears for Oz, apart from ghosts! Before giving in, though, he plans to play one last card. Some time ago, another character has entered the limelight and attracted even more of the media's attention than he did; someone known only as the Exorcist. This character has acquired enormous wealth thanks to donations collected in various ways: at lectures, demon exorcism masses, ghosts expelled from private residences and other dubious activities linked to the world of the paranormal.

Now is a good time to point out that the Exorcist has nothing to do with the Church. He is not a priest, and neither is he a believer or a church-goer. He lives in an abandoned, crumbling building, a former mental asylum in the English countryside, which, it is said, is home to ghosts, souls who cannot abandon the limbo in which they find themselves and who live with this mysterious figure. Essentially, it's a carnival of horror clichés: an exorcist, an abandoned mental asylum, ghosts for company and a self-styled paranormal investigator looking for a scoop.

Oz's plan is simple: he has got hold of the Exorcist by phone and has suggested making a documentary in order to boost his credibility, a documentary which will put all the merits of his work on display, an interview intended to emphasise his credibility and trustworthiness (something that none of the media have ever wanted go near), and footage of the ghosts that live in the building. By doing this, the Exorcist will benefit from the documentary, Oz will finally have some real videos to offer on his website, and... he won't have to look for a real job! Oz thought it would be hard work to convince the Exorcist (given that Ghosts & Mansions' reputation was hardly a foot in the door), but everything was extremely simple.

The man turned out to be available and free at the weekend; there was just enough time to book a flight, pack his bags and share the news on his website and social media:

"Hey, people! Look out for for a bombshell of a story: I'm going to meet the Exorcist! Get ready for a long interview, video clips of ghosts and who knows what else! Keep an eye on Ghosts & Mansions... Regards, OzO!"

The boxshot (top image) is not representing this unique style very well, imo.

That's true ! :) This is a WIP, The "Resistance", the characters in the last image, will be on the final boxshot. ;) (and a different style, not this one)

Thank you all :) . @Amélie ,it's true, you understood what I meant to do. While I was working on badges, achievements and emoticons in Steam, for "The Apotheosis Project", I developed this idea, and I thought it could work. Some parts in these images still need more love, but I think it's a road that deserves to be explored :).

This secondary project is being made in 320x240. It will be developed within a lower pace than the other hi-res games by Midian Design, but will for sure be released. Sooner or later... (2036?) :)


1959. The world is ruled by Hitler, who led World War II.


The technology is in the hands of two superpowers: the Tesla Group, based in Neo Eboracum, and the Einstein Dynamic, based in Berlin.

The first one is specialized in nanotechnology, the second one in the production of steam machines and steam powered robots.
Our protagonist, Morgan Gibson, is a private investigator who despite the Regime, manages to survive thanks to small assignments.

While working on a case of adultery, during his stakeout, he receives a strange text message from Temperance, his wife, discovering she has disappeared into thin air. She was recently working for the Tesla Group, so his research has to start from there...


*Last screenshot: Piotr has the mind of a child, he never speaks but he's one of the best bomb expert around. Faith is the leader of the Resistance and Heath, Faith's brother, is an expert in many types of technology.
