St. Christopher's is in lockdown in a new adventure game


6:00 PM on 06.24.2013



If you're going to attract people to backing your Kickstarter for an adventure game, then promising "no meaningless fetch quests, no mazes and no pixel hunts" is a good way to do it. The St. Christopher's School Lockdown (a working title) is a traditional point-'n-click adventure game that takes its cues from some of the recent political and social upheaval in the UK and across the world. A group of 200 students barricade themselves inside the titular school, protesting government reforms to the education budget but as they come under pressure from the authorities and media, violence flares.

The whole game will be episodic in structure, letting you play one of six different characters in each chapter. Right now the Kickstarter campaign is at £5,658 out of a paltry £9,000. This will only cover the creation of a demo and the first chapter, so hopefully there's some interest to get the game going for the whole story but you can vote for The St. Christopher's School Lockdown on Greenlight too. The strengths of classic adventure games were always their settings and characters; I'd love to seem more games with a contemporary setting dealing with contemporary issues.

This is it: Final trailer for The Walking Dead Season 2

This will spoil season 2 for you up to this point. If you're not caught up (like me), don't watch. Otherwise, get excited about "No Way Back," the final episode in season 2 of The Walking Dead. Can it live up to the first season's strong finale? "No Way Back" hits PC/Mac and North American PS3/Vita on August 26; Xbox 360 and European PS3/Vita on August 27; iOS on August 28. more

Want to watch 35 minutes of gameplay from The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt?

With gamescom now behind us, you'd figure that CD Projekt RED would keep a tight lid on all things related to The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. But apparently not, as it would seem. A week after the show, the developers decided to un...more
