The Corruption Within Trailer and Update - 07/15/20 01:01 AM

The Corruption Within is a 2D psychological thriller first-person point & click adventure game set in the Victorian era. The game is the creation of GameBoomers CaptainD aka Dave Seaman, the Developer of the award-winning Point & Click "Captain Disaster in: Death Has A Million Stomping Boots".

Quote
You have just enjoyed a camping holiday with your family when your wife and two young children go missing. With no way to contact anyone you head towards the only source of civilisation for miles around - a grand old mansion by a lake. You soon find yourself drawn into a bigger mystery while you desperately try to find your family…

The game employs a style that mixes realism with surrealism, which complements the atmosphere of the game. The artwork is detailed low-res pixel art using a custom-made colour palette.

The Corruption Within is a psychological thriller first-person point & click adventure game set in the Victorian era. While there will certainly be puzzles, the emphasis will be on strong story-telling. The mansion and its inhabitants hide mysteries that must be uncovered before rescuing your children will become possible.


Happy Gaming!

Many thanks Ana!

We are running this very modest Kickstarter just to help with costs and keep things going so we can make this the best game we possibly can. It's ticking along quite nicely so far smile

Thanks FFG! 78% funded now!

Having to do all sorts of research into what was invented during or before Victorian times to make sure we stay as historically accurate as possible for this game!! laugh

That's such great news, CaptainD!

And a game set in Victorian times sounds very appealing to me.
