Before I show this, I must admit- this game isn't made by me... I mean the plot for it. This is more of a sort of fan-remake of the first novel of successful mystery author, Agatha Christie. The pictures will be posted soon. Other than adding in room for a few puzzles and somewhat changing the ending, the game will be pretty straight-to-book. If all goes well, I would remake more A.C books, with the exception of "Murder on the Orient Express", "Evil Under the Sun", "The A.B.C Murders", and "Death on the Nile", which are all already remade into adventure games (in one case a hidden object game, but still...)
SUMMARY: When John Cavendish, friend of main character Arthur Hastings, invites him to the wealthy Essex home of his rich-yet-charitable mother Emily Inglethorpe, he never expected foul play to ensue. When the mistress of the house is killed with potassium cyanide, Arthur Hastings remembers that another old friend, Belgian detective Hercule Poirot is living nearby in a cottage, he gets his help in the case that started it all. Was it John, his wife Elizabeth, his brother Lawrence? How about the assistant Evie, the maid Dorcas, the doctor Bauerstein, or the young adopted daughter Cynthia? Or perhaps it was Emily's husband Alfred, whose name was on her dying lips?
GAMEPLAY: The main gameplay factors are not puzzle solving, but instead are more focused on character interrogation and clue finding. In fact, the majority of puzzles in the game are making theories about what happened and testing them by placing objects willy nilly and some such. Another more interesting part of the gameplay is trying to understand Poirot, both egotistical and very pleasant, he has a problem of hiding things and being somewhat psychotic in his methods (not Holmes insane, but- a sort of different insane. It's hard to understand and I'll try to put that kind of Poirot insanity in the game).
The story is done, of course, it's been done since 1920. What I am working on now is the graphical aspect, using a mix of Sketchup and Poser 8 to make both. Anyways, the progress is, I'd say 5% done.
My sig changes more often than Doctor Who (see your national BBC channel) regenarates into new melancholy actors. Oh look, Matt Smith! Gerard Butler! Colin Mochrie! That wolf from Twilight: New Moon!
