Old Post from Dec 2009 (For reference purposes)
My team, J.R. Creative Studios, LLC, is finishing our project, Lincoln V. We are also looking for team members as well, but if you want to know more about that, please check our team thread: http://blenderartists.org/forum/showthread.php?t=174009. The two posts are largely similar, but this one is more-so focused on telling about the project.
Lincoln V is a science-fiction mystery game that will be playable on the iPhone, iPod Touch, Mac, and PC and plays similar to games like Myst or Riven. The game includes voice-acting, cinematic sequences, and revolves around the unexplained death of everyone aboard a space station called “The Gateway”. As the main character, you find yourself alone aboard the station with no idea what happened.
Gameplay: The game is fundamentally “point-and-click” wherein you move through the Gateway finding clues and tinkering with puzzles. Unlike a lot of puzzle games, these puzzles are more naturally occurring. I.E. Instead of having to solve a rubic’s cube to get through a door, you have to realize that the door’s wiring is messed up and re-wire it. As you progress through the game you find out more about what happened on the Gateway you uncover surveillance recordings detailing the arrival of a woman named Axel and her partner Orion - supposedly the ones behind the catastrophe.
The game will have at least two difficulty modes available, easy and hard and each time you start a new game in either mode, the solution to most of the puzzles is randomly varied. In hard mode, a major difference, is that due to a serious injury the main character sustains, you only have a limited time to finish the game and all the puzzles within it.
The game art is being developed using Blender and being programmed using Torque Game Builder.
