A murder mystery with themes of love, relationships and more…
Frostwood Interactive, creators behind the cinematic murder mystery, Rainswept, have today announced the beginning of their Indiegogo campaign! Rainswept was first released as a 30-minute playable demo in the month of January 2018, garnering well over 50,000 views and 10,000 play-throughs across Gamejolt and Itch.io in the months since. The Indiegogo campaign launched now seeks to complete development of the game, which stands finished in terms of its core gameplay and story look. Armaan Sandhu of Frostwood Interactive, had this to say about the campaign and how it will help finish the game off.
‘Rainswept can be played from start to end, but I now need to plug-in the holes by adding elements to make the world feel more alive, polishing various aspects of writing, animations, graphics, UI, and testing for quality assurance. All acquired funds will not only ensure maximum quality of the final product but will also help with keeping its release schedule.’
The games story revolves around one Detective Michael Anderson, who gets called in to investigate the apparent murder-suicide of Chris and Diane. Assisted by the empathetic Officer Blunt, Rainswept aims to settle its audience into the daily rhythm of a small-town murder investigation by having them explore the streets of Pineview, interrogate suspects and solve puzzles in point “n” click fashion. All while Detective Anderson’s own unresolved trauma threatens to jeopardise the case. Players will also experience Chris’ emotional story with Diane through flashback sequences, joining them in pivotal moments of their lives.
