In production - "The Corruption Within"
« on: 02 Jun 2020, 15:57 »
This one's a bit of a departure for me, working with the dev who made "Void Breach (https://store.steampowered.com/app/1204710/Void_Breach/)" on it.  Provisionally looking at releasing in Q2 of 2021.


The Corruption Within is a psychological thriller first-person point & click adventure game set in the Victorian era.  While there will certainly be puzzles, the emphasis will be on strong story-telling.   You have just enjoyed a camping holiday with your family when your wife and two young children go missing.  With no way to contact anyone you head towards the only source of civilisation for miles around - a grand old mansion by a lake.  You soon find yourself drawn into a bigger mystery while you desperately try to find your family…

We are planning to run a Kickstarter (or some other crowd fundraiser) and details of this will be posted when they are confirmed.


(Posting here because it will be made with Game Maker Studio 2 not AGS.)

The staircase room reminds me of "Sammy's Quest" from the old AGS tutorial videos series!

Cool graphical style and the plot sounds very interesting!
Man, these Captain Disaster's adventures are getting stranger and stranger... ;)

Good luck with development!

Ooh, what palette is this? I'm loving how soft and warm the hues are compared to my beloved, ghastly EGA ;)

Thanks everyone for your interest!

@Fitz - Aviv doesn't have an account here yet but he said the palette is based on the shades of 4 highly saturated colors, green, red, turquoise, and purple.
