The St. Christopher's School Lockdown (working title, referred to as St. Chris from here on out) is a point-and-click adventure game, reminiscent in style of the Sierra and LucasArts glory days, and will be released initially for PCs, Macs and Linux, and if the demand calls for it (and our finances allow it), ported to mobile platforms.
It is heavily inspired by recent events in both the United Kingdom (01, 02, 03) and in Chile (01, 02, 03), involving massive student demonstrations, rallies and riots. We invite you to do a little bit of reading into it, as it's a fascinating subject, and will help give a great deal of insight into the game's setting and political climate.
Now, let's talk gaming. Right from the get-go, we want to promise you:
-- NO meaningless fetch quests!
-- NO pixel hunts!
-- NO juggling eight hundred inventory items and combining them until you hit upon that one perfect puzzle solution by sheer accident!
-- NO deadly boring "find the key for this locked door" puzzles!
-- NO mazes!
