For the past 3 or 4 months, I’ve been working on my next game project.
Remember the FMV boom of the 90’s? Yeah, me too. Possibly why I couldn’t get the idea of an FMV game out of my mind.
Having film-making experience it seemed a fair and logical choice to go with FMV for my next project.
There’s something comforting about those 90’s FMV games. Perhaps that’s just me, but I always admired the effort to try something new with this genre.
There was the classic Phantasmagoria (I also loved the sequel, Phantasmagoria II: A Puzzle of Flesh, much to your probable shock!), 7th Guest, with it’s 3D rendered backgrounds and actors filmed against a greenscreen, and then there was Night Trap, which I actually haven’t played yet. I’ve got it somewhere so I’ll probably give it a go at some point.
Anyhow, back to the new project.
I’ll be filming and editing all footage myself and even acting as the main character, so that should be fun. Or a career killer. We’ll see.
I’ll be posting updates when I begin shooting in the next week or so.
