This game is set in the beautiful location of Byron Bay, the far North-eastern corner of the state of New South Wales in Australia. After visiting there in 2005, the place left a lasting impression with me as it’s one of the most unique places I have ever been. Byron Bay is a small town with about 5000 residents. There are many bars, restaurants and shops with a really relaxed, laid back feeling, everyone seems ultra-chilled out, what could possibly go wrong in a place like this?
When I began planning my first text adventure I felt it was important to have the location clear in my mind before I could attempt to script a game. What appealed to me about setting it here was the fact that such a laid back place could be literally turned upside down with what happens in the story.
The game starts with you playing Hudson Brune, a 34 year old pioneer in genetic engineering working for BrynEli-Med. You initially find yourself alone in a car park looking for a way out of what was a bustling tourist attraction. A medical experiment gone wrong has resulted in the inhabitants becoming infected. You now realise you have to get out of this place, but how? A small set of interconnected puzzles will ensure your safety, but beware, the solution is not an easy one unless you look EVERYWHERE!
Enjoy playing the game, I hope you manage to escape, please take a moment to comment when you have played the game!
