My New Game: Doug's Moai Adventure

I'm going to be part of a project that is going to use the Moai engine, so I decided to get myself accustomed to the engine by create an adventure game with it, using Sandy Maguire's adventure engine as a base. So, for the past few months, I've been learning the ins and outs of Moai, and Doug's Moai Adventure is the result. It stars Doug the Ogre from the Jenni webcomic and the Doug the Ogre Collaborative Comic (which is completely open for anyone to participate in, as it's licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution-Sharealike 4.0 license). This is the first adventure game I've created since 1997, so even though it's short (as was the aforementioned game), I'm proud to be able to release it into the wild.  Enjoy!

Trilobyte Tries Crowdfunding The 7th Guest 3 Again

After failing on Kickstarter, Trilobyte has regrouped and started up a new crowdfunding campaign for The 7th Guest 3: The Collector, through Crowdtilt. They started the Crowdtilt campaign in December, shortly after the end of the Kickstarter, but did not go public with it until now. This time they are only seeking $65,000. This will fund The 7th Guest 3: The 1st Story, which will be the entire first floor of the mansion.

From there, the campaign will remain open, and there will be stretch goals. The first stretch goal will be for development of the second story, and the second stretch goal will be the funding required to fund the full game. So, if you're interested in getting a new chapter of the full motion video horror adventure series, head to the crowdfunding page for The 7th Guest 3: The Collector and pick a pledge tier.
