Hi everyone smile

I'm from Belgium and I'm designing a funny and old-school point and click adventure game for PC and Mac.

Here's the pitch:
After a 10-year quest, Lancelot and his fellow Gawain have found the Holy Grail! Immediately informed, King Arthur runs to meet the most valiant knights of the Round Table. While their king brings them fortune and fame, Lancelot and Gawain celebrate their victory over a few beers. The next morning, Lancelot wakes up in his underwear in a gay bar. The keeper tells him that he has lost the Holy Grail playing cards and Gawain has been kidnapped by environmental activists. If he does not want to be killed by Arthur, Lancelot has to get back the Grail and his companion in arms before the king of Britain discovers what happened.

I've started this thread on this forum to introduce you the game's developpement. I will be extremely glad to get your comments, advices and suggestions. My goal is to provide you the funniest point and click I can.

If you have questions about the sorywriting, the making of the artworks, the code stuff, the list of all psychoactive drugs consumed to craft the puzzles and the 'creative' businness plan behind the game financing (and yes, all the rumours about the offshore accounts and the ties with the Russian mafia you read on the Internet are true!), feel from to drop me a comment. I'll make my best to reply the most sincerely I can.


If you want to test the game, a beta is coming very soon. I'll give a download link on this forum. Or if it's handier for you, I'll tweet the link on @Lancelot_game

Thanks smile

Jean-Baptiste

Very Important (although boring) Legal Stuff

The European Commercial Court of Justice (ECCJ), held on 8th February 2014 in Brussels (Belgium), stated that:

  • The author of the video game called "Lancelot's Hangover" is no more allowed to include in his playful-oriented computer program any puzzles that can be solved in a logical manner. The player, to progress through the game, must always use, one by one, all the objects in the inventory on all the different objects and characters within the game (and if possible, several times). In addition, only websites in Serbo-Croatian language will be willing to publish a text walkthrough (which must first be encrypted using the SHA-512 algorithm).
  • The author of the video game "Lancelot's Hangover" will also break any contacts with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un by 23th June 2014 and will provide a urine sample, every Tuesday morning, at The European Commission for the Efficiency of Justice (CEPEJ) until 1st January 2017 inclusive.

Thanks a lot MaG, Marian, Gil and Ana smile I really appreciate laugh Be sure I look forward to present you the beta!

One question to the moderators: going back to this thread, watching for replies, I realized some images I've posted into the first post was removed. Is it because there were too much of them? I'm a newbie here, got to learn the do's and don'ts wink

declerfayt, thank you very much for the announcement! The game looks and sounds just great. I especially like its bright and medieval graphics style - it is very similar to 'The Yawhg'.

But some things in its humor makes me feel rather uneasy - is all that 'gay bar' theme really necessary, for example?

(You can look at the example of 'Al Emmo' recently released on Steam - while it is indeed a classic game following best traditions of Sierra and Lucasarts, too much innuendo and filthy humor did ruin the fun for many adventure-loving gamers...)

Well now, Iurii, your mentioning a 'gay bar' theme makes it all the more enticing for this gamer. lol Everyone's sense of humour and mischief is different. Not every developer is aiming for the mainstream. I applaud that. laugh

Iurii, just like Rushes, I too enjoy the non mainstream humor and themes. It is nice to have choices. If all developers made the same thing, it would be very boring and I myself enjoy an adult or more mature theme. I also loved Al emmo! He had me laughing all the way through.

Jean-Baptiste, I did turn your video into a link to save bandwidth. Generally, we link to screens also in order to save bandwidth. I did not edit it originally but it was likely done for that reason.

Thanks Iurii for the games! smile I love The Yawhg's graphics and Al Emmo seems pretty fun! Gotta have to try! And thanks for the compliments. I appreciate! smile Don't be afraid about filthy humor (although that kind of stuff makes me laugh too), my game's more absurd-Monty-Python-oriented (you'll know what I mean when playing the beta, you'll talk to the medieval gay bar keeper - stay tune Iurri! wink

Thanks Rushes smile You got it! I don't care about mainstream indeed. I just want to make my best to develop a point and click game that whould be making me laugh the way I did when I was a teen in the early 90's. And my bet is that other players would be interrested too to play with that kind of games. I just make this game for fans like me wink

Thanks Ana for the humor and themes smile I was replying when you posted your message smile

No prob about the brandwidth. I understand managing brandwidth is pretty necessary for a forum, especially with video stuff. I've just realised I was able to embed YouTube links in posts, that's cool smile

declerfayt,

Did you know that Gameboomer's MaG is the foremost walkthrough writer in the Adventure Game world?
I am definitely looking forward to her walkthrough in the required Serbo-Croatian language.

grin
