I pledged for The Curse of Shadow House from the start, but I could not post about it as it only had Android and iOS ports planned.
But today it was finally funded with 25 more hours to go.
The funding goal is 8k (achieved), and the GNU/Linux port is at 12k , it’s a lot for this project – but not so much compared to other projects.
So if you want it, we can make it (with a little help from the Windows and MacOS contributors).
The interesting part is that the whole game is done by one person it it looks excellent ! (the art is superb and the music is outstanding – listen to it from it’s kickstarter page)
“I am personally creating all of the artwork in the game, composing and performing the music, writing the stroy and putting it together so it all works well on your mobile device. Since the nature of the gameplay is pretty basic, programming the game is the easy part.”
About The Game
The Curse of Shadow House is a Homage to old school adventure games in the likes of Shadowgate, The 7th Guest, and Maniac Mansion, to name a few.
This is a game where you can lay back in bed with the lights off, pop on your headphones, and get sucked into an intriguing adventure. A world filled with a tragic love story, a strange haunted estate to explore, and an emotional, dynamic soundtrack.
The Game play is simple, you navigate from room to room,Finding items and solving puzzles in an effort to find the cure to your new found vampirism and bring an end to the Curse of Shadow House. This is the first in a series of adventures for the character..(who’s name has not been finalized)
I really just want to make this a game where you can relax and enjoy the story, graphics, sound and mood of it all while exploring and solving the puzzles. No stress of zombies chasing after you, just you taking it all in and using your wits to unlock the mystery.
You are a young woman, and you have been bitten by a vampire and find yourself in a strange house…
You begin to find old pages from what appears to be a journal, scattered throughout the house.
As you find the letters, a tragic story begins to unfold…
Young Alexander Shadow has lost his Bride, Elizabeth Blackwell when she is caught in a random act of violence and is killed. Falling deeper into a depression, Alexander longs for death to be reunited with his lost love.
Overcome with grief, Alexander reaches his breaking point and vows to end his own life. Tragically, on the eve of his suicide, he is bitten by a Vampire and cursed to immortality, doomed to never see his wife again in the afterlife.
Can you put an end to the curse and free yourself from the vampirism that has befallen you? Can you reunite lost souls?
Explore a beautifully illustrated haunted estate! Solve challenging puzzles. Collect the journal pages. Create your own haunting melody on a broken old piano. Use items from your inventory to interact with the environment. Get lost in the world of The Curse of Shadow House!
