Dark Asylum - A new point and click horror adventure game...

Good evening guys and gals...

Over at Stormy Studio we've been developing a new point and click adventure game for the past 2 years in between other projects.

Who's involved?
On the team we have myself (an award winning animator with 10 years experience :-) doing illustrations, animation, 3d modelling and programming.

Andre Govia a fantastic photographer who has given us access to his back catalogue of Asylum photos.



A Swiss games music composer named Jonas, and my wife Emma in charge of accounts, tea making and general morale.

What's the game?

It's a point and click adventure game with a big horror twist. All the rooms/locations in the game are 360, and you can swipe your way around them. We're exploring what makes a game truly terrifying, using light, shadows and a well honed story line that has shocks and tears mixed together. We'd love to hear your views on what you find makes a game truly scary.



The game when done will be released for ios, android, windows phone, mac and pc.

I'll post updates on the project here...as more final walk throughs, images, designs come together...

I know there's not much to see yet... but I'll post some videos of early prototype gameplay soon...

Update:
The team is set to grow by 2, with a motion graphics designer and 2nd musician looking to join us.

We're aiming for a Autumn 2013 release at the moment.

Anyone feedback from the forum?

Cool... really hoping to make something pretty impressive and as close to a AAA title as we can get for a small indie team...

If you haven't already, I'd recommend playing Scratches (and to a lesser extent, the Dark Fall series), which is well-regarded, and uses the same type of engine, theme and gameplay that you're going for; you may find the experience useful or just fun. The developer of Scratches is actually working on a new game set in an asylum at the moment, coincidentally enough.
