Adventure Jam 2017: Treasure Chest #37


What’s a “Treasure Chest” article?

It’s a short text and video compilation of three to five small jam games we really liked for some reason (like core concept, artwork, effort etc.).

“The Temple of ADVENTURE” by Stuart LilfordTom Clayton, James Bennett-Hill & Ben Sutcliffe.

A humorous metagame, where several parts of the average AAA adventure gaming experience are recreated with the help of the voice of developer Stuart Lilford and the whole ‘level’ design. Cinematics? Sure, just start the VCR! The simulation of the loading time? Recreated by the a drive with the elevator. A nice jam entry in the spirit of “The Stanley Parable”.

“Holy Molluscamony” by Charlotte Gore.

In best old ScummVM tradition this point’n’click adventure was made. It’s all about a wedding, where the bride was cloned by a slug monster, so you have to figure out who is who. To do so, you have to find beer (because slugs love beer, huh?), salt and other things. But all the crazy wedding guests don’t make your quest any easier – but at least they speak with the help of finest British voice-acting!

A nice little point and click adventure about a treasure hunt on an island – but first, you have to get on it. So there’s a jet ski in the abandoned house, but there’s no fuel… But wait a second: Didn’t have the one weird fisherman a bottle of very strong whiskey? Hm… Hmmm!
