Group ACTiVATED has released the game “The Makers Eden Act 1″ for MacOSX & Linux platforms. Enjoy!
Description: The Maker’s Eden is a first-person hypertext adventure game presented in the style of a motion comic. You play a character trying to discover what their predefined purpose is, in a science fiction/noir inspired world filled with androids, flying cars and an early 20th century vibe.
The Maker’s Eden is a first-person slideshow style point and click adventure game in a retro-futuristic noir inspired setting, presented in the style of a motion comic. The focus is on story/narrative and you will learn about the world by talking to characters and examining your surroundings.
Your story begins inside a stasis pod, and you have no knowledge of who or what you are. You have been given no memories, so for all it seems, you are nobody… but why are people after you, and why do they want you dead? Can’t give away too much without spoiling, but there’s a deep layer of socio-political commentary surrounding your personal story.
Our challenge here was to present a slideshow style adventure game in a way that does not leave you feeling detached from the environment, so we’re building every hand-painted scene with a sense of depth created by layers and camera movement. Scenes are not static, we’ve added just enough environmental effects and animation to not break the comic-book style presentation.
