So who are you actually playing when you embark on this adventure in outer space? Well, meet Rick, Hubert and Evie, the crew of the spaceship Eric!
If you are a longtime follower of the Rick Future audio play series you will probably know who those guys are. But don’t worry if you don’t, because in the next weeks we will try and provide you with a bit more information about this ragtag bunch of space adventurers and how they ended up together in this adventure.
All three characters will be playable in the game. Yes, this means you do not only control a single character but can switch between all three of them. You might be able to solve certain puzzles only using Rick’s skills, while others might need Evie or Hubert to actually progress. Some puzzles will even need all three work in a team to overcome a problem. This will mix things up a bit and give you a lot of ways to actually experiment with the individual skills of our heroes.
So stay tuned for more updates on each of the heroes, their skills and abilities. We will provide you with much more information in the course of the next weeks.
First of all we got a brand new forum! You are invited to discuss all game related topics there and comment on any news posts. We hope to see you there - just click the 'Comunity' button on the right. It's still a bit empty at the moment, but it will hopefully fill up somewhat as we get closer to release.
Almost to the date we have been in production for one year now! Hooray!
28.06.2012Puzzle design and caffeine
In case you ever wondered how puzzles in adventure games get designed...
Answer: On a napkin in a coffee shop.
Sometimes good ideas just pop up when you are away from work, like in this Starbucks in Vancouver, where we were spending a weekend earlier this year. We don't know if it was the caffeine or coincidence but we came up with one more cool logic puzzle for the game.
We don't want to spoil anything, but the puzzle is already implemented and working well in the latest version of the game. We hope you'll have quite a challenging time with it when you help Rick figuring this puzzle out.
