A tiny super-short thriller journey (a love letter to C64 recreation “The Detective”)


Saving a spot for one thing I’ve been engaged on for fairly a while (the work has began in July 2021 however solely lately has it reached a state the place it is considerably showable).

As acknowledged within the title of the put up, the sport goes to be a tiny, super-short thriller journey drawing inspiration from a Commodore 64 recreation “The Detective”. The participant takes the position of a Scotland Yard inspector invited to a British countryside mansion to unravel the case of a mysterious deadly accident.

Or possibly it was not an accident in any respect? And did the butler have something to do with it…?

Anyway, the sport is being created in Unity and the visible fashion is a consequence of two elements: my deep affection for mixing low-poly 3D with pixel-art and the truth that I’m principally a programmer, not a graphic artist. Gameplay-wise the sport shall be quite just like “The Detective” – the participant walks across the mansion and gathers clues by speaking to characters, interacting with objects and amassing objects. The time will circulate in real-time (Durr...?) and there may also be a tough time restrict (similar to in C64 unique). Control scheme is quite easy (motion, motion, cancel) and can help each keyboard and gamepad (together with touch-screen controls, trace, trace  Well, hello there!).

Most of the story, characters, dialogues, objects, objects and mansion format is established and determined upon and at present I’m specializing in precise manufacturing utilizing Aseprite for graphics and Blockbench for 3D modelling (have you learnt Blockbench? OMG it is so cool!). The work goes quite slowly (however regular!), so I anticipate this thread to be up to date considerably recurrently, even when not too typically.
