A spooky story-driven “Escape Room”-esque game full of cartoon vibes.

Welcome-to-Casket-Cove.gif

Population: Less than 500 and dwindling.

SYNOPSIS

Mayor-Dyre.gif
Dearest visitor,

First and foremost, let me extend to you the warmest of welcomes. As the proud mayor of Casket Cove, I’m excited you’ve chosen our home to spend your vacation. Just to get the obvious out of the way… I know our town might not quite look like what you saw in the brochures, but I hope you will overlook the misprint. Please don’t mind the hazardous terrain and somewhat gloomy nature of our special little town. I believe the sense of peril only ADDS to its unique charms. Casket Cove is full of exciting locales sure to bestow upon you the most treasured of memories. My residents are known for their generous hospitality and friendly smiles. But if they just so happen to mention any grisly rumors, freak accidents, or otherwise strange occurrences, just pay them no mind! In fact, you should probably report this resident to the Mayor so I can … ever so gently remind them not to spread lies to our curious guests.

In any case, we do hope you enjoy your visit to our humble town. Most people – well, ALL people – who have visited Casket Cove end up staying here with us for a long, long, LONG time. And I’m sure you will, too!

Sincerely,

Mayor Orville C. Dyre

NOTES
This was originally meant as a month-long project for Halloween 2022, but that didn't go as planned :kaoswt2: If you like kinda funny, cartoony horror or point-and-click games with chatty characters and think you might like to give this a shot when it's ready, l'd appreciate it! :LZSjoy:

This gives me all sorts of maniac mansion vibes and as always your art is impeccable and distinct. Coloring book meets eldeitch horror. I'll keep a look out for this one.

Hey devos! It’s been a while since I posted about Escape from Haunted Spaces here & I miss making devlogs and sharing with you all ^^;

This update, I want to talk a short while about one of the features I’ve been hard at work at….

Yes, of course! hahaha … :kaoswt2:

Mini games

Dodge-doll mini game: where you'll want to avoid this unfortunate outcome

I made a short video that gives some insight on how doors work in Hex House (…they’re more complex than they sound!). In the video, you stumble across a lost teammate, but something much more menacing lies in wait behind other doors, and it’s … mini games :eek:

If you love mini games like I do, then maybe they're not that scary


Your main goal in the first episode is to make it out of the haunted house with as many characters as you possibly can. Mini games will act as one of your biggest roadblocks to that. They’re a breeze if your character’s stats play well with that specific mini game. If not, it’ll get a lot harder.



Stats-Chance.png

Early version of Chance’s stats card. His high Courage means he’s great at games that test bravery. Just don’t ask him to think too hard or use his biceps!



If you fail a mini game, then the character that you were playing as will be separated from the group. But never fear! You can locate them by searching different doors in the manor, although there’s no guarantee they’ll show up again. And if it’s your starting character that loses, it’s game over for you. So try your best to beat every mini game you face and get the complete ending with all characters in tow!

The mechanics for the final mini game, Fright Light, are finished now - you can see it in action over on YouTube, too!




There’s also been a ton of asset-making (and remaking) happening …

I still think something looks off about the perspective in the new hallway graphics … *slowly reaches towards tablet*

Flashlight party!

Dreamtrotter’s demo had a lot of issues loading images… So far, fake loading screens are helping


…And that’s some of what I’ve been working on! The test demo still has a little ways to go before it’s playable, but it’s getting there, peeps

To all who gave this a read: thank you :LZSproud: Hope you have a happy chocolate-filled Easter!

Continuing our countdown with Capsule Monster #13 Tomey Thomas! I loved the idea of a tiny book gaining sentience and being a little wizard. It’s a shame none of his spells are useful XD
