Quote:
Guard Duty is a fresh take on the graphic adventure genre from Sick Chicken Studios, a unique comedy adventure about love, loss and the end of the world. Experience a story spanning across two radically different time periods, be it the cobbled streets of Wrinklewood or the crumbling cities of Neo London, happily ever after has never felt like such a fantasy.

Take control of Tondbert, loyal Guard to the Castle of Wrinklewood as he embarks on a journey to save the love of his life. A mysterious hooded figure has kidnapped Princess Theremin and with all of the King's horses and all the King's men predisposed, it's up to our hero to save the day.

Overcome ferocious beasts in the Wildlands, make your way through the mysterious Deadwoods and venture north into uncharted lands.

2074...

The war is long over, the planet is lost. Humanity's last hope for salvation lies off-world, in a small orbital station where a Resistance group calling themselves the 'Guardians of New Haven' are plotting a grand scheme, one that could change the course of history. Take control of Agent Starborn, as he fights his way to the top, to overcome evil and take back Earth.


History
​Guard Duty started as a hobby project in 2014 where Nathan Hamley and Andy Saunders-White decided to realise their childhood dream of making a graphic adventure, reminiscent of those they loved from the late 80's and early 90's . After three years of hard work developing a prototype, Guard Duty saw Kickstarter success in 2017, surpassing it's goal by over 200%. Since then, Nathan has gone onto work on the project full time and the team are expecting to release Guard Duty in quarter four of 2018.


Features
​A full stand-alone game spanning across two drastically different time zones – Past or future, choose your actions wisely. This is not a tale for the faint of heart.

Explore an open world – Venture past the Deadwoods, head North through the Wildlands or return to Wrinklewood for a swift pint at your leisure.

Streamlined inventory and puzzle design – The feel of a classic, without all the faff. Puzzles are logical with an intuitive interface, Guard Duty features a modern mentality to game design whilst retaining a classic aesthetic.

Hundreds of detailed animations – Be it the flicker of candlelight, leaves blowing in the wind or the jaws of a giant Wrinkleworm you can be sure those pixels will be pulling their weight.

Bespoke music and sound – Guard Duty features over 30 unique musical compositions with hundreds of sound effects created in-house specifically for this project.

Integrated 'to-do list' keeps track of current goals and objectives – Never lose sight of your goal, Guard Duty features a familiar RPG styled quest tracking system.

Hand crafted pixel art – True to the era, Guard Duty is created in a juicy 320x240 resolution and styled like a real 90's point and click.



Happy Gaming!
