Projector Face - Now available on Steam!
« on: 02 Jun 2016, 19:11 »
Projector Face is a point and click adventure game following the peculiar actions of a voiceless protagonist, trying to communicate in the only way he knows how. Solve a variety of puzzles and help Projector Face befriend the local kids by creating new things for them to play with and doing what you do best: playing movies on whatever surface you can find.

Featuring a beautiful art style, Projector Face is an interesting experience set in an odd town forgotten to time. Players will need to gather items needed to solve a variety of puzzles, as well as create and repair old film reels and the surfaces they can be projected onto. Put yourself in the shoes of a misunderstood creature, and discover the odd world of Projector Face.

Game Features:

- Repair old films found throughout the town
- Mouse-only controls
- Interact with, pick up, and combine items to solve various puzzles throughout the game
- 100% hand drawn characters and environments
- "Silent Film" style narration

Projector Face was created on and off over the course of 7-8 months. I'd like to mention that the animations seem to be low frame numbers, and I want to be clear that this was an intentional decision: based off of budget woes and team size. We decided having consistent, low frame count animations would be more reliable than some animations that were higher quality than others.

I also want to give a very huge thanks to the people of these forums, for being hands down the nicest and most helpful online community I've ever had the pleasure to work with. I look forward to beginning another project with this program in the future. I hope you all enjoy the game, a lot of love went into it from myself, the other developer, and the insanely talented artists.

Looks a great game.  :smiley:

But your link is for steam - do you have any plans for a DRM-free release?

Unfortunately the company I was working for during the game's creation own the rights to it, so any alternate plans for release are entirely up to them.

Hey,

I work at Fluik Entertainment/helped on Projector Face and could push for a DRM-free version.  Historically the company has been exclusively Android/iOS so we're pretty new at this. Where would you suggest we sell DRM-free copies?  And may I ask what your aversion is to Steam (My own curiosity)?  I don't have the authority to make final decisions but I just had a conversation about selling copies through itchio and GOG that went well.  I'm eager to hear your thoughts.


Thanks!

Aw, what a nice game! I had to do a bit of guessing at some of the puzzles, but felt they were mostly pretty well done. Great background art, and a nice idea for a story (which made me laugh at the poor guy's confusion). :smiley:

Have you opened the safe? The clue you need is on the second screen!
