Spotlight: Outsider Games and Jennifer Wilde
- After finishing the musical point-and-click adventure Wailing Heights, Outsider Games has gone to Kickstarter to fund their next game, Jennifer Wilde.
- Jennifer Wilde is based on a comic book that Stephen drew a few years ago. It features art student Jennifer, who through various circumstances ends up calling the ghost of Oscar Wilde, and using his help to solve a mystery. Set in 1920s Paris, the game makes use of a lovely comic book art style, and music to match the era.
- There’s a free demo of
JessicaJennifer Wilde on the Kickstarter page if you want to try it out!
Two Truths, One Lie
We round off this episode with our usual game. Stephen definitely didn’t just make these up 30 seconds ago, and we indulge in a little bit of time travel.
