About the game
The Fickle Hands of Fate is a short single-click point and click adventure game.
Fate is finalizing her last recording in the steeple of an abandoned church in a village she is about to leave.
Then, off to another city and another recording: her search is not over yet.
Here comes another short adventure game I developed in about a month with Adventure Game Studio, during the May 2017 edition of the Monthly Adventure Game Studio competition.
This time I went solo, and tried to develop it all by myself. I had an idea for a single-click, rather than the lately-common two-clicks, interface and went to release something trying to make use of it.
I tried to delegate to an on-screen popup what usually is told by the main character whenever examines an hotspot or objects. The results appear as per this in-game screenshot
The idea behind this was to implement some sort of “stream of consciousness” rather than an out-loud description of what the character sees.
The game itself is quite short but I’m pretty happy with what I have been able to achieve, also graphics-wise, which usually is not my forte.
Finally, I was able to play some guitar and record few tracks to put in the game. That helped me a lot in the process of coming up with the characters and the overall mood.
What you see in the game is actually a pretty small portion of what I had in mind, therefore I’m planning to build up from where I left!
