Hi all!

I was referred to this sight by a very helpful admin from another site. My team and I are considering doing a small mini development as practice for our own future development project.

Some of us are huge adventure fans and considered doing a RealTime 3D version of “Mansion of Hidden Souls” from the Sega CD era. It’s a small game and would really suit our purposes for practice.

However we’d really like to pick a potential remake project other people would be interested in playing after we’re done.

So basically my question is, “Is anyone interested?”
Thanks for your answers. Really helps us out.


Summary:

Hidden Souls is an FMV adventure game that features a wonderfully orchestrated sound track by Yuji Nomi. This Sega sleeper characterizes mysterious butterflies secluded in a Mansion in the middle of nowhere; who guide your character Jonathan through its surreal interiors to save your sister from her (and your own) doomed fate of becoming hidden for eternity.

welcome to GameBoomers jesblood! What a great idea for a game! Are you going to be using pixel art like the original or will it be higher res?

Actually Ana it’s going to be high res. We’re using Unity 2018 to make the game. We’ve already been doing some tests by constructing a greybox level version of the Foyer room with the staircase. So far it looks quite incredible. What we intend to do is not only reconstruct it faithfully as best we can but also update it as far as interactivity.

We will be posting a video walkthrough of the environment soon.

But if you want to see us really take this on we need people to chime in and let us know. Please contact your fellow adventurers and send them over here to this post to let us know. Thanks!

Yes, jesblood has posted at Mystery Manor and AG and I suggested he might find more responses here at Gameboomers. I think it's a very worthy project! I'm also VERY glad the game will be high res.

Thank you Connie! Thank you Mad!

We really appreciate the support! So far we’ve been gaining a lot of understanding from working on this small sample. Hopefully we’ll get enough interest to take this to the end.

As I posted earlier we will be uploading an example shortly.

Hey everyone!

As promised here's just a 30 sec clip of a Greybox test we've preformed in Unity 2018. Below our example we have posted a walkthrough of the original game. Please fast forward if you like to timestamp 2:39 and you'll get a glimpse of the Foyer space we emulated. Compare and let us know what you think. Thanks!

As you can see in our example you'd have total freedom to approach that COOL Grandfather clock off to the right of the grand staircase!

Thank you so much Ana! Really put a lot of hard work into over a few days. Really appreciate the feed back.

I saw that you reduced the examples to external links.Totally understandable. Is it permitted for us to post screen captures of each link just so others have a visual idea of what they’re going to see when they click the link? If so we’d like to add those for visual reference.

Thanks for asking, and as you can see by my own announcement threads we greatly limit the screens. We are a self funded website and try and keep the costs of bandwidth down. If you can get the screens to 20k or 30k max and it's just the two I'll let them stay. Rest assured though. the members know to click the links here!
