'Alaska' is an action adventure game currently in development by the one man indie studio 'Wreck Tangle Games'. The game is to give players a week in the life of an Alaskan man who lives in a small town high up in the mountains. The town consists of 5 families, living in their own way, providing for themselves and for their neighbours. They all fish together on the rivers, eat each others hunting trophies and enjoy each others company... But their day to day life is about to change, when a body is discovered, murdered on the town's airstrip... Who do you trust now?
A Thriller-Adventure with a solid story, twists and an exhilarating chase to find who is the murderer in your community - Try The Demo!
Alaska is to feature a deep, dark story that will have you feeling many different emotions. Once the first body has been found, murdered on the airstrip, YOU must make the decision on who to trust and who to not.
Your best friend starts acting strange; the recluse on the other side of town has disappeared; Mr McWilliams’s rifle has gone missing and bloodstains have appeared outside the Andrew’s property. All this, plus more, will have you constantly second guessing who the killer is.
Will you solve the mystery before the next murder is committed?
In Alaska there are skills you must learn to survive the last frontier. These skills will help weave the story together as well as help you care for yourself and your neighbours.
Some of the skills in the full game include:
Fishing (As shown in the demo)
And much more!
Along with the skills, there are also puzzles along the way. These puzzles will need to be completed as part of objectives. Objectives with puzzles include repairing water tanks, powering on electricity generators, setting up fireworks and many more.
MULTIPLE CHOICE CONVERSATIONS
The conversations with your neighbours are to be a lot deeper in the full game, with multiple choice options that will truly shape your journey.
Alaska displays a novel way of displaying your next objective... Postcards. Press ‘Q’ at any point of the game to reveal a post card of where you need to head to next. This is held in Blake’s left hand.
The map is also displayed on a card, the map is held in Blake’s right hand. Press ‘E’ at any point of the game to display.
Alaska’s soundtrack is full of wonder and curiosity for the first half of the game, but as things start to get tenser, as the atmosphere changes, the music changes with it. The high notes of the piano, so whimsical, start to get lower and darker in tone.
Having certificates in music composition, technology and performing, I feel more than capable that I will be able to make the soundtrack of Alaska exactly how I want it. Music will play a large part in Alaska, creating the atmosphere for this dark story.
