Transfer Point Cover Art

Streamed from May 3 to June 14, 2024

I recently finished creating a game called Transfer Point in World Builder, an adventure game development tool created by William C. Appleton, and published by Silicon Beach Software in 1986. The game is currently being playtested and polished up for release.

Since the game was created entirely on stream, using tools from the 80s, I thought it was only fair that I create the cover art for the game the same way. Game boxes at the time often featured an illustration, typically painted or created using some other form of traditional media. I’m attempting to create my cover the same way—starting out with sketches, then eventually painting it using acrylics.

Maupiti Island

Continues Tuesday, June 18 at 9 PM EDT

Maupiti Island is a point-and-click detective mystery game, and a sequel to Mortville Manor. It was originally released for Amiga in 1990, then for DOS and Atari ST in 1991. I’ll be playing the DOS version for DOSember. Much like Murder Club, Maupiti Island is known for being among the most difficult adventure games ever made. It features beautiful VGA graphics, and uses a unique text-to-speech system to voice character dialogue.
