We're having a rather big competition over at the poppenkast. It has a prize! Ehm, publicity would be nice.


Take me there!

I am sorely tempted by the hat. Is "Everything has to be made by you and your team" as strict as it sounds - you can't use public domain photographs, say, or sounds from a free database?

I've been reading up on film noir. I just saw this in an essay:
Quote
Producers realized that these films could be made more cheaply because the look was dramatic but minimalist, the camerawork hiding the paucity of production values, especially in the "B" variations on noir. Politically conscious screenwriters knew they could slide social criticism into crime pictures fairly easily, since the studio bosses cared less about genre pictures. Hollywood was situated in the heart of a city with no shortage of glamour, venality and corruption - very inspiring to artists with a criminal bent.
Sounds like it might be possible to get some mileage out of drawing parallels with indie games. Is "World of Goo" noir?

Just because it has social criticism it doesn't mean it's Noir if that's what you mean.

Also, HOLY SHIT A HAT

some of the character design is drawn from the noir genre (the smoking lady, say), but overall I wouldn't say so...it's a mish-mash, stylistically...

Obviously a point-and-click adventure game. That's what the genre is best fit for Noir

Wanna help? Well, hello there!

It was this bit 'Producers realized that these films could be made more cheaply because the look was dramatic but minimalist, the camerawork hiding the paucity of production values, especially in the "B" variations on noir' that made me think that indie games (if they manage to look dramatic) will automatically share at least this much with noir. I was wondering if there were connections that could be drawn with the social criticism and corruption stuff as well; but I guess there is quite a gap between this and World of Goo's digs at EA.

I understand where you're going with this, but maybe that's a little too farfetched Tongue

It looks fine to me. At least, I don't remember it being a problem to make an account there, and they haven't asked for money.

I love noir. Noir

A hard-boiled detective story would be the obvious choice for this.  (A graphic adventure, I guess.)  But I wonder if noir could be translated to something more abstract...
