A while back I announced that I’m working on Half-Life 2 mod Visage. And I wasn’t lying – in fact, my big project next week is to finish off the plot document. However, I’ve also been brainstorming and designing and prototyping for something else over the past several months, and I’m finally ready to unveil what I’ve been working on.
It’s a sorta-room-escape mod called Sheltered!
For a while I’ve wanted to do a room-escape game. I think they have so much potential beyond what they tend to be: low-budget Flash creations with annoying pixel-hunting. I’ve also been thinking about the reward of discovery in games, and how you can go about playing with that.
While not an enormous mod, this is probably the most ambitious solo project I’ve taken on. Well, except Post Script, but ssh. Expect it to be released on its release date.
