« on: 10 Nov 2020, 11:31 »


After Urban Witch Story, Dead Dimension and Billy Masters Was Right I´m happy to share with you my new project. It's my more ambitious game to date. I hope you like it!

Story

A frustrated slasher writer sets out on a quest for a lost film: the scariest movie ever made. From the Hollywood in the mid-eighties to a small town  where strange things happen.

Features:

- 320x200 pixel graphics.

- Two button click-interface

-Music by: Heclysma.

Overall Progress: 65%

There are three acts in the game. One of them is complete and all the music of the game is done.

Looks really good!

I'm curious, the lighting effects from the police car's lights, how were they achieved? They look like a shader effect almost, but as far as I can tell, AGS can't really render that in real time.

Looking forward to this one - wishlisted on Steam!

Thank you, Hobbes.

All the lightning effects are animated .png's.

Thank you to all!
Here's a pic of a bunch of characters for the first act (Hollywood):


One of the most gratifying things when developing the game is that having a template for the sprites for the characters, there are no limits to implement them. Not only the key characters, but people who pass by on the street, extras, etc. It's easy and fun!
