Awards: 1st Place winner of the Sci-Fi Game Pitch Contest! Synopsis: A sci-fi mouse driven adventure game that focuses on puzzle solving as a means of progression. Puzzles are worth points and unlock special cut scenes as well as small perks. The game will have a clear linear plot that the player can follow or forego to find side puzzles that contribute to the overall story. Features: There are no battles or equipment, but the player gets an inventory to help them discern evidence when interrogating and arresting criminals. The game will have a custom menu that hosts a variety of useful tools for investigation along with the "Puzzle Matrix" a device that once activated/given to the player through a story event allows you to go back and solve puzzles you may have missed along the way. One of the tools essential to the team is the "Galatica" a device used by law enforcement to produce instant knowledge of alien worlds and their laws to better enforce order. Being from Earth Jayce and Stacy will notice the Galatica is strangely void of any knowledge of Humans or the Sol system. It's up to the player to fill in the blanks while they explore the galaxy and it's people. As the player progresses with the Galactica new cut scenes will open on Earth to play out with Jayce and Stacy's friends.

Plot: The game stars two high school children Stacy and Jayce. Jayce is a smart wheelchair bound boy, and Stacy is the popular overly violent girl. The two love to play detective until one day while hanging around a crime scene they become involved in an extraterrestrial plot to smuggle narcotics. Coming into possession of several clues to a dealer a dragon like alien, the Sheriff of Sol "Gallus" deputizes them both. He takes them to Galaxy Police Headquarters where he wants them to interrogate a suspect and arrange them for trial. This will put them on the trail of a large drug cartel, and one step closer to shutting down the head of the Stellar Syndicate; an organized criminal group bent on control of the Galaxy. Jayce and Stacy will have their own story unraveling as they explore the hidden life of their parents, whose involvement with the GP led them to an untimely end. Game-play: The game depends on several phases per chapter: Investigation, Interrogation, Incarceration, and Indictment. Progress is measured by puzzle solving outside of court. During the Investigative phase the player will be allowed to explore and interact with alien worlds and people as well as return to Earth. Interrogation allows the player to question and torture suspects, but can have negative consequences on your career if you decided to harass innocent people. Incarceration lets the player visit the criminals in jail and discern information about dealings as well as clues. Indictment will be the hardest phase requiring the player to give testimony based on the evidence collected. The AI of the game will be triggered by events and conditions that the player performs in court, and when evidence is presented. Presenting evidence too soon or neglecting it can lead to the criminal walking. Characters: Jayce aka Wheels The brains of the duo. Although Wheels is bound to his chair he never sits still when crime is on the loose. Jayce is the only character in all of video game history to enjoy top billing with his disability. He's often put into peril by his sister Stacy, and takes a beating; but nothing stops this wheeled warrior. Stacy aka Leg Girl The muscle of the duo, she is not only strong willed but strong armed. Stacy is a blonde in every sense of the word. She would be the greatest detective in history if not for the fact she thought her magnifying glass was a mirror which she believed to be broken. She thought Cheerios were donut seeds until freshman year at high school. She's an active cheerleader and wants her brother Jayce to join the football team. She couldn't join because the boys said she played too rough- also state law, or something about gender roles-it's BS. She has wanted to be a detective all her life to the point she has been arrested for interfering with police investigations by "helping". NPCS: Gallus, Sheriff of Sol He's been in law enforcement for years, yet he's one of the lowest ranking Galaxy Police Officers. His skills with heavy artillery and breath to hand combat were honed during his time in Narcotics. It's his role that brings him to Earth on pursuit of the Stellar Syndicate to meet the duo. General Slag'tite, overseer of the Galaxy Police An immortal being from a planet of inorganic life he sits as commander of the forces which protects the galaxy's citizens from harm. His frightening ability to encase criminals in a prison of crystal and lob sharp shards of matter at his opponents makes him a living weapon. To this star date he has never been defeated. He is the only creature of his planet to survive against the ancient war with Metalla, a powerful star mage. Supreme Judicar A government appointed judge and lawmaker. His presence strikes fear into even the most hardened of lawyers and law officials. Stacy just calls him Judge Judy. Queen Zharrramahthalalalthalas (Or just Zha, we're all friends here) Hive mind of the Insectoids, she closely resembles an ant. Insectoids can be pretty much any type of insect and vary from an incredible range of her choosing. They evolve to meet most labor challenges. She is very fond of Jayce as he is the only male human she's ever seen. Rare and exotic males are highly prized in her society as delicacies. She often displays ditsy qualities and looses control of the hive when distracted. Everything any member of her race sees, she sees even across the vastness of space. Lately though members of her hive have been exhibiting unusual behavior with free will. She fears her people are being used in criminal activity. Teddy D. Bonkers is Stacy's faithful secretary and an associate of Alien Resources at the GP. A decorated bureaucrat bear. Villains: Stellar Syndicate A vicious organization based in drug trade. They are an organized criminal group that is bent on galactic control of all commerce. Thier main drug trade involves narcotics, the most popular of which is only refereed to as "The Spice" and manufactured on a desert planet. Also everyone whispers on that planet even though they don't need too. Don't ask it's wierd. Order of Ellipses Nothing is known about this mysterious group. Their cultist like members dress in long robes and don't say anything. They are bland and uninteresting, so most people ignore them entirely due to how ineffective they are in practice. The Pack The Wolves of Gnaral have shut out all outsiders and influence from other races creating what they call a pure race. Wolves that have been exiled from Gnaral often turn to criminal activity and form their own hierarchy. The Pack is ruled by one such wolf and is a mercenary force for hire. He has his eyes set on Stacy and her detective prowess hoping to use her to claim victory over his nemesis, a powerful star mage. Metalla and Synx Metalla is one of the more powerful star mages in the known galaxy. Her power over the solar winds and forces which control all life is unquestioned. We are all made of star stuff. Every last spec of dust in the universe came from stars. To see her is to know death. She is considered an "S" Class criminal. She is aware of humans, and considers them a direct threat to her well being. Due to her fear she has destroyed most star routes to Earth isolating it from most of the Galaxy's traffic. Synx is Metalla's Son and a total bumbler. He lacks the magical nature of his mother and is often in her shadow. He's a musician, and often turns to his hobby to get through his mother's rage. Other races: Stacy likes all the boys, just put them in a pile for her and she'll sort through them later.
