Description

Port Valley is a (not so) classic Point & Click adventure where perspective changes everything! Witness Port Valley's Election Day from 3 different points of view: A lazy delivery guy, a mysterious female plumber… and someone else.

 Prepare yourself to face Port Valley's bizarre citizens and unfold the obscure plot that is tying together these (apparently) unrelated stories. Revenge, political conspiracies, a banana balloon… everything was meant to clash on this specific day.


History

Port Valley came to be because of personal frustration with modern adventure games. I feel that they tend to oversimplify their mechanics and limit players' interaction with the game in favor of linearity, which is something I'm not comfortable with.

I wanted to make a game where gameplay and game mechanics were the tools for storytelling, world-building and character development, and where the goal was not to "pay tribute" to the classics, but to borrow the old-school mechanics to make something actually new. I honestly believe this genre still has a lot to say.

Port Valley received its first playable demo in 2019, but a 2020 DEMO launched in June 2020 with all-new content, including a new UI system, very improved designs and many, MANY new features.

Features

  • 3 plots, 3 main characters, 3 difficulty modes, 3 mayoral candidates… 3 chances to unfold a dark and bigger story.
  • A renewed yet classic Point & Click interface.* (*May not be that renewed.)
  • A humoristic light-hearted tone with annoying self-aware humor.
  • Active NPCs. They're not just there to give you items and their objectives may be more important than yours.
  • Annoying puzzles with different ways to solve them.
  • An in-game day/night cycle. (This would've been a big deal back in the 90's.)
  • A dog

About WrongPixel

Boilerplate
So I'm the creator, designer, writer, programmer, etc, etc, blah, blah… of Port Valley. I'm basically making everything but the music, and that's because I really suck at it (I tried!). I used to be a screenwriter, but my personal goal is to make this game happen for some reason. Also, I don't like broccoli. (That's all there's to know, honestly.)
