We’re pleased to announce a new game in development, a cooperative mystery game for mobile devices and computers. Grab some friends, find the evidence, hear the witness statements and work together to figure out who committed the crime.
You’re a detective at the scene of a crime. Each player has their own witnesses and evidence, and you must trade information and items, and discuss your theories to solve the mystery.
This will be ClickShake’s first multiplayer game, taking inspiration from truly social mobile games like SpaceTeam and electronic board games like Clue FX. The goal is to play with friends in the same room, but you can also play over the internet or in single player mode.
It’s also our first independent title not developed in Flash. We love and miss working in Flash, but Adobe will no longer support the plugin after 2020 and many browsers already block it. Although we’ve completed games for clients in other tools like Marmalade, OpenFL/Haxe and Unity, it’s a big step for our indie game company to put out a new original game with mobile devices and modern tech in mind. In addition to the downloadable version for phone, tablet, PC and Mac, we’re also planning to release a version you can play in your browsers using HTML5 because we’ve just always liked being able to load up a game instantly and start playing it! Hopefully we can get the game to perform well enough in HTML5 to release with browser play.
It’s a new direction for ClickShake, but we’re staying true to our core of casual games with colorful characters and engaging puzzles. Please visit our mini-site to learn more. We look forward to your feedback!
The game will also be exhibited at GDEX gaming convention in Columbus Ohio on the weekend of 9/29/17.
