Louisiana: Mystery Cases (Product introduction)

VIENNA, Austria, March 6, 2009 – We would like to introduce to you our brand new game ‘Louisiana: Mystery Cases’. It is a modern full 3D adventure game with a stylish environment and catchy storyline. The year is 1902, and you will find yourself at a New Orleans’ suburb. The lazy summer sun is slowly penetrating the gloom of the local marshes, and yet the city is being overcast by a heavy creeping cloud of doubts and anxiety. There have always been a lot of murders in this neighborhood. Now, however, the situation is different. These killings are so brutal, lacking any apparent motive and too complicated to have been committed by a raging insane maniac. Before long they catch the attention of the Federal Bureau of Investigation who is now sending their best special agent …

We offer:

Technology Development – When there is talk about adventure games, the technologies that make them possible to be brought to life usually take a back seat. We did our best to create a more spectacular project in a full three dimensional environment with innovative controls and a top notch quality engine supporting the most recent functionalities and effects.

A Style with a Touch of Nostalgia – Being a truly interesting era, the early 1900s combined with the attractive environment of New Orleans, Louisiana, is an unparalleled period combined with an unparalleled city, whose unique architecture enabled us to develop a really interesting game, in terms of design.

Conversation as a Substantial Component of the Game - In conducting the investigation, dialogues play an indispensable role, which is exactly why we offer the option of the dialogs’ real-time segmentation into branched optional subdialogs. We strive to break out of the unwelcome trend followed by so many games that pretend to have their dialogs non-linear, but, in fact, they force the player to use all of the options. The structure of our dialogs goes much deeper, and it affects numerous aspects of actual happenings of the story that the game consists in.

Point Score in an Adventure - We do not take into account whether a player finishes the game, but how he or she gets to the end. What we intended was to motivate players to think and contemplate their steps instead of making passive mechanical attempts to try every option available. To that end, we use an evaluation system based on what we call ‘Detective Points’. The game will assess the underlying logic and elegance with which a player is taking his or her steps to make progress as well as the player’s responsiveness to various situations. In addition to this, a high score will be rewarded with access to a bonus location.

Detailed Graphic - Unlike in action games, the traditional locations (levels) in adventures are much smaller. This approach combined with our state-of-the-art technology enabled us to develop an extraordinary diversified and nice environment. We made the textures as well as the polygons more concentrated, which has substantially increased the quality of details.

Release Date: Summer 2009
Developer: Infinion
Publisher: Not yet set.
Platform: PC, (we are prototyping versions for XBLA and PSP as well, with later release date.)

Sounds ambitious. I love New Orleans as a setting.

Interesting project. On second thought: in 1902 there was no FBI. So there couldn't be any FBI agent either. So that's what I can comment in this moment to the story-design. whistle

Here we go again.....

"a full three dimensional environment with innovative controls"

I shudder to think of what has been dreamed up this time.

I visited the website and am very impressed with the graphics and the way the dialogue will be handled, not to mention the storyline. This is one game I am putting on my "buy as soon as released list." I am really looking forward to this game. bravo

EDIT.............
Just one thing more, the only thing that could spoil it for me or hinder me buying the game is if I find out it is not a point and click. I hate WASD movement and seldom buy games that are not point and click or mouse driven. razz

Mouse movement is so much easier for me. If anyone knows whether it will be point and click please let us know. Thanks in advance.

Greatsmithy, Granny and Sherryah, I could be wrong, but I believe this game will let you choose between point and click and direct control. Hopefully this is the case. smile
