Our latest point and click adventure - Football Game - is out now, and it's 20% off for the first week!
We've been hard at work on our next game, Football Game - and all going to plan it will be released next week! (exact date TBC) . It's currently in the testing and polishing phase.
Football Game is a short point and click thriller set in 1980s small town USA, with an ambiguous story that allows for interpretation and intrigue. You can check out the Steam page here.
What's the story?
East Bend, Purchase County. 1987.
You are Tommy. A local high school footballing hero, the town of East Bend is your playground. It's game night for the Purchase County Turbines and your sweetheart is waiting in the bleachers. Join Tommy for a night that you won't forget.
Something is amiss...
What are the features?
- An old school point and click adventure game aesthetic, with the puzzles and dialog interactions familiar to the genre
- A cast of odd characters, including friends, foes, teachers, and an unbalanced mother
- A twisted narrative, with approximately 40 minutes to an hour of gameplay, depending on the player
- Original soundtrack by UK duo JUPITER-C
Old school point and click adventures from the 1980s, 1980s American culture, the music and films of David Lynch
How much will it cost?
Football Game is a short experience, and as such the price will be low. Expect the game to be approximately £1.79/$1.99 at most.
We also aim to localise Football Game in French.

As we continue hurtling towards the release of Legend of Hand in the next few days, take a look at this behind the scenes video of the fun we had recording some of the vocal effects used in the game!
It's finally approaching... Legend of Hand should be released in the next week or so!
Stay tuned for further developments as we push it over the line :)
In the meantime, check out the two release trailers below:
It's been literally years since I did a blog post, in the meantime a million things have happened! Will write up a big blog entry soon. Until then here is a little summary of where we are at:
One of our upcoming games, Football Game has been greenlit on Steam, thank you for your support!
We are working hard on Legend of Hand and hopefully we are on target for release in late July 2017.
Football Game and Sumatra will both also be released by the end of the year, all going to plan!

Goodness it's been ages since I wrote an update on the website! If you've been following me on Twitter you'll see whilst we haven't progressed with "Legend of Hand" as much as we'd of liked to, we've been beavering away as much as possible for the last few months since the release of Pendek. Some news: we'll be showing a demo of our next game "Legend of Hand" at Adventure X on Saturday 12th December - the game is much more polished since we exhibited it last year and there is a lot of new content, so do pop in if you're in London. The event is being held at Goldsmiths University in New Cross, you can find more details here: http://www.screen7.co.uk/adventurex/
Between now and then we're going to polish up the demo as much as we can, and will release it online in the days following Adventure X - hopefully to coincide with a Greenlight campaign! Expect to see the demo available on websites like Gamejolt and itch.io.
Stay tuned for more! Thanks for reading,
We've been beavering away busily for the last few weeks making games for two jams - first was The Terrible Old Man for March MAGS 2015 (I'll write a proper blog about this soon), and then there was Pendek, for AdventureJam 2015. Pendek is now finished and available! You can read more about it and download free HERE
Things have been progressing okay over the last couple of months - work on our game The Legend of Hand is still ticking over, and nice feedback is still coming in for A Date in the Park. Thanks to everyone who's played it!
Whilst John is busy writing and drawing for the Legend of Hand, I often don't have too much to do. So I've started a writing and drawing up a new game! It's untitled at the moment, but is going to be a mystery/investigative style game, in a similar vein to Mudlarks. The story is inspired by a 'true' story, and is set in Canada in the 1800s. The main character is a farm hand who gets caught up in mysterious goings on at a farm in an isolated settlement. I've been putting up a few pics on Twitter that have had good feedback, so I'm really excited about this game, and it's nice to be writing and drawing again. As it's a bit of a massive side project, I'm not going to put a time frame on it. But the slowish rate The Legend of Hand is going, this new game might be the first one released!
So keep an eye on my Twitter for more updates, and I'll put a few more pics up here as well as they come along.
Thanks for reading!
