If I’m going to write for a detective, I may as well act like a detective. A little sneak peak of my thought process behind my current project.
What is that you’ve written on? Looks like a collection of placemats.
Sounds fun though, hope there’s not any spoilers to be spotted on there. Don’t want to ruin the mystery before I get a chance to play it.
I’ve not seen a thread about your game yet, is there anything more you can tell us about it yet?
wow! that’s great seeing your plans in action. good luck Miss Nancy Drew
It looks like tiled whiteboards, which I think is a product, hopefully the OP will explain!
We won’t worry until it starts getting done with thread and thumbtacks and pictures like in the movies!
Ha ha, thanks for the kind words, folks. I’m staying really tight-lipped about my first project because I can only really throw bits and pieces of free time at it. I don’t want to set any expectations that I may find myself unable to meet in the future.
I was going to just buy one big whiteboard, but all Walmart had were these six 14x14 silver ones. Now my bedroom wall looks like some sort of control center from a 1950s sci-fi flick.
The sad part is I already had enough cork board, thumbtacks, and string to really go private eye, just from leftover miniature terrain supplies. I decided not to look like a total nutcase though.
I’ve got a ton of respect for mysteries and I think interactive fiction is a fantastic platform for them. I wrote a bit about them in particular on my blog here. Looking forward to your game’s future release!
I’m actually trying to brainstorm my own ideas and whilst it won’t be for a mystery, I like the idea of a mind map (:
even i didn’t get my first priority project on real form, i think another plotline for fiction story hahaha
If you feel inspired to dress it up, the strings and cut-out pictures might be fun to add. Looking mad is half the fun of the process.
I like mystery’s to solve. Its sounds fun And hope there is not any spoilers to be spotted.
