SEELE Games presents...
- Introduction -
It has been a rough year, that's for sure.
2020, I mean.
I couldn't manage to release a single full game during that time. The only thing I managed to release was a very rough Alpha demo (rough year, rough releases) of Karma Flow 2 - Tears of a Ghost.
I wanna change that.
The Lady Puppet will be a complete game, and will be released by the time the Seasons Event IV ends, or shortly after it ends anyway (a la PSYCHE Locke).
This experimental game, much like PSYCHE Locke was at the time, will be conceived in order for me to explore new territories and put emphasis on certain aspects I usually do not put enough emphasis on. In other words, it's a game that's meant to make me grow as a dev, hopefully, and test new stuff that will help me greatly with my main game, Karma Flow 2.
- About the game -
The Lady Puppet is a short 2D Dark Adventure game with emphasis on atmosphere, exploration, light puzzle solving and stealth.
The player takes on the role of the innocent Lailah Reah and will have to help her find a way out of Clawhill, a mysterious place that's apparently disconnected from the "outside world" and that's trapping her and all of the other "survivors".
Lailah will be able to walk, run and examine objects and documents scattered all around Clawhill. Certain items will allow Lailah to heal her wounds or progress through the game. Documents will, instead, give insights on the overall plot and backstory of the game. Collecting them will allow the player to uncover the story and to understand what's going on exactly.
When confronted with the enemy, the player will have to be careful not to get spotted by them, or else a chase sequence will begin. Enemies will be able to see and hear Lailah. Their pattern and effectiveness depends on the type of enemy.
There will be another small twist added to the gameplay. I won't spoil it to you, you'll have to play to see. :)
- Plot summary -
September 21, Autumn season. The season of changes.
Lailah Reah wakes up only to find herself trapped in a dark and dangerous place called Clawhill. For reasons she can't explain, she's "strung". Wires are stuck inside her wrists and her ankles, but somehow those don't limit her movements.
Despite being a model student and a nice person, Lailah lacks the courage to face the hardships that await her. But with the help of the Masked Woman maybe she'll be able to find the Spookhouse, the place that connects Clawhill to the "outside world", and escape from that nightmare.
Or maybe she'll perish? Maybe the Masked Woman should not be trusted?
Will a girl like her, always afraid and powerless, be able to survive?
- Characters -
Lailah is a young, joyful and smart girl that's the talk of the town. Why is she trapped inside Clawhill?
The Masked Woman
A strange, subtle and attractive woman that wants to help Lailah getting out of Clawhill. Can she be trusted?
A tired and sarcastic man, that's been through the same shit for too long now. He's strung just like Lailah and all the other survivors and also currently "controlled by someone".
A cheerful and extroverted girl and a long time friend of Lailah. She also ended up inside Clawhill and she's strung just like her.
