( WIP in this case might potentially stand for Weird, Idiosyncratic Project )
More than anything, this to-be-short game is a spoof on Batman, an iconic hero in the comic book world, and his origin, enemies (a select few) and his very world. It was started for the Christmas Chronicler Contest by @BenSeawalker and although I hardly finished it in time I have continued to work on it.
It will be a short and free game, most likely only three ‘acts’, each ending in a cliffhanger like those old serials in the theatres of the early 20th century.
Allow me to show you the opening scene so you may opt to take Gandalf suggestion to heart and fly, you fools, fly:
What has been
The man points the gun at your parents and speaks in a smooth yet gravelly voice, sort of like a piece of quality Teflon pulled over a gravel path early on a cool but not chilly spring morning at northerly latitude of about forty two degrees and twelve minutes.
‘Have you ever danced with a dentil in the moon-faced pail-fire?’
Your parents exchange a confused glance and pity stays your fathers hand. That is when a loud bang resounds through the night, promptly followed by another. A yelp from above turns everyone’s eye upward, moments before a piano strikes your parents with a flat chord that dies out con anima.
The man with the gun makes an inscrutable face and flees the scene as your mother and father reach towards you with their bloody hands, if you pardon the language.
‘Don’t forget us, remember we…we love you. Always…’
Then silence falls upon Garden Lane.
No sooner has it fallen before you throw your head back and cry out, inconsiderately breaking that very silence even before it had a chance to settle in. Above you a shocked face promptly ducks inside a window and leaves two snapped wires flapping in the wind.

Disclaimer: not necessarily in that order or to a magnitude of unsatisfactory levels of reasonable or not expectations
Disclaimer 2: not quite native to English so expect faulty grammar and odd sentence structure as well as a poor grasp of nomenclature and pointers are quite welcome as I do so adore languages
Disclaimer 3: no playing the part of the villainous villain in this story, only those strong in the justice need apply - however, the overuse of some force is optional if you feel the rage growing over this fact
Disclaimer 4: may not contain traces of nuts but definitely contains plenty of nutcases
Currently kicking Act Two about, not unlike a somnambulant sloth.
Feedback and thoughts are welcome, of course, or I wouldn’t have posted this in the first place. Although I must admit I am strongly considering not posting this at all. In fact, let’s hit that cancel button right now.
