Headbanger's Heaven - A Rock & Roll Adventure

DOWNLOAD
Created by Frodo


Jason Miller is a typical teenage rocker.  Loves to stay up all night and sleep all day.  And of course, headbang to his favourite music. 
When he enters a competition in Kerplow Rock Magazine, he never dreamed he would actually win first prize!
But won, he has.  And now he gets to spend the afternoon with his favourite band, Uptempo Maniacs, and get a private performance of their new song. 

He is SO excited!  He still can't believe it, even when the limo driver drops him off at the band's mansion. 
He has his autograph book, all ready to get autographs from all 6 of the band members.  And he CANNOT WAIT for the special private performance. 

But if he thinks he's in for an easy afternoon, he's got another think coming.

For Your Consideration


Guard Duty is a “Pythonesque” comedy adventure that spans two radically different time periods --
the cobbled streets of medieval Wrinklewood and the future dystopia of Neo London.

Replete with cheeky humour, stylised cartoon pixel art, and a story that blurs the lines between fantasy and sci-fi.

Whispers of a Machine





Whispers of a Machine is a Sci-Fi Nordic Noir that tells the story of Vera, a cybernetically augmented special agent tasked with investigating a string of murders.

These brutal killings obscure a sinister truth, as Vera soon finds ties to a group of fanatics committed to creating an AI superintelligence — a pursuit outlawed for nearly a century. Complicating things, a great loss from Vera's past comes back to haunt her, making her question her own sanity and everything she stands for.

As an agent of the Central Bureau, Vera is equipped with an advanced nano-substance called Blue. This rare and sought-after technology allows her to develop superhuman abilities adapted to her psychological mindset. Choose your playstyle and utilize these augmentations to investigate, gather information, and solve puzzles with multiple solutions.

Will Vera's unique blend of skills and intuition be enough to solve the case, or will she discover that things are more ambiguous than they seemed? In this emotionally gripping story with existential twists and multiple endings, Vera's actions will have monumental consequences not only for herself, but for all of humanity...

INVESTIGATION, AUGMENTED:
• Will Vera approach situations with a more empathetic, analytical, or assertive style? Your choices will impact her augmentations and subsequent puzzle solutions.

A POST-AI FUTURISTIC DYSTOPIA:
• Immerse yourself in a realized world of beautifully hand-drawn pixel art design and gorgeous settings influenced by the Nordics.

POINT-AND-CLICK INNOVATION:
• A groundbreaking entry to the point-and-click adventure game genre by the experienced developers of Kathy Rain and The Samaritan Paradox.

PROFESSIONALLY VOICED:
• 4,000+ lines of dialogue with full English voice acting, directed by Wadjet Eye Games' Dave Gilbert.
