The game is very near completion, so I added some new screenshots.

Intrigue At Oakhaven Plantation takes place in a Southern Plantation in Louisiana.  You arrive there, upon request from your grandmere, to discuss matters concerning the inheritance of the house and lands due to the fact that grandmere is old and is ready to decide who she is going to leave her wealth to.  After you learn what you must do, another relative/character arrives to learn the same.  At this point, you have puzzles to solve which will gain you points to try to beat the character you don't want to win.  You may swap between the two characters at any point and they each will have different puzzles.

The game is 95% complete in all areas, graphics, story and coding.

This game will be a commercial game.

"First person" playing two characters.

Here are some in-game screenshots:

Opening scene:


Inside house displaying gui where you can check each character's score or switch character:


There will be 20 interactive puzzles:












Discover what lies behind the plantation in the murky depths of the swamp, if you can find your way in without getting lost before darkness falls.



If you do manage to navigate the swamp, and you find the Voodoo Mamba, what secrets will her Ouija board spell out to you?

Lovely graphics, and nice idea about switching between characters.
Hope the gameplay and story will be strong like the graphics too, then you'd have a very awesome game.   Best wishes with your project, looking forwards to seeing it completed.

Looking good. The new interface makes it seem much more professional that Hauntings of Mystery Manor.

Yes it does.  I used the default for the HoMM game because to me it looked all creepy like the game.  Obviously no one else cared for it and I was shredded to pieces on that.  I  decided to not make that mistake again.  ;)

I am really enjoying making this new game.  I "really" got into the scripting side of it all and am happy with the results so far.
