Hello everybody. I would like to introduce you to a game I've been working on for over a year now. It is called TRAUMA and I guess you could categorize it as a Point-and-Click Adventure. But it's very different.



It tells a story of a young woman who survives a car accident. Recovering at the hospital, she has dreams that shed light on different aspects of her identity - such as the way she deals with the loss of her parents. You can navigate with her trough those dreams and learn about her.

The game features gesture-recognition, real-time 3D and somewhat unusual photographic visuals. Also, I followed a design strategy that focuses on experience rather than challenge.

It is made in Flash and will be playable online. The release will be by hopefully the end 2009. Here is a tiny, tiny website with a first gameplay video:

Questions, comments and feedback are very welcome.  Wink

Congratulations to this project!
The blending between the scenes is great! It is so much cooler than in every other 2d-point&click adventures I know.

How are the photos linked together? Do you have to define every blending-animation for each photo or is there some automatic calculation?

Thanks for the encouraging feedback guys. After a year, it's very difficult to keep the motivation alive.

@raiten Hey Marcus. I'm glad to hear from you again! ^_^

@JackNeil Well, yes and no. The animations aren't done manually. With around 30 photos per level that would have been insane. Big Laff
I arranged the photos spatially and used the Flash 3D Engine Papervision3D for animations. But arranging the photos had to be manually, as opposed to automatic solutions like Photsynth http://photosynth.net/Default.aspx

Here is a screenshot from the process. Each of the 4 levels has around 30 photos.



And here is a "map" of a finished level



Larger versions and some more development Screenshots are here
