Game Release: A Desperate Mother’s Love

As I’ve been mentioning on social media for a while now, we have submitted a game for the IGMC 2015 contest.  The game is a prequel to the one we released for the WAG Challenge, In Over Their Heads.  BTW, you can watch about a minute of the opening in a Let’s Play style video, being played by a Jupiter Hadley.

The IGMC game is called A Desperate Mother’s Love.  The story follows Roy, the detective from In Over Their Heads, earlier in his career when he is hired by a Hispanic woman to recover her kidnapped daughter.  A pretty simple job, just trade the ransom money for the girl.  But there’s a catch!  The mother borrowed the money from the mafia and can’t pay it back, so Roy has to get the girl…then track the kidnapper and get back the money.

Roy decides to hire some help, but in 1930 USA the only people he can find willing to work for the limited pay he’s offering is an unemployed university graduate, Angie, and a down-on-her-luck former socialite, Vonnie.  Roy quickly begins to realize that there’s more to the story than he’s being told.

With two endings an a few branching decisions in between, there’s some replay value, just like In Over Their Heads.  The game’s available for download from the contest site that I’ll link to again, for good measure, and of course it’s available for free.

A couple of our favorite voice actors returned to help out on this project, Cary and Sara, whom you may remember as Yachiro and the Narrator from the Audio Trailer for the first story in Escort.

If you feel up to it, go to the contest page and give us a vote (requires registering an account), play the game a bit, and comment on it a bit.

BTW, the anniversary was good.  We went for a little dinner cruise on the river.  The food was good, the sights were see-worthy (haha, get it?), and the company was spectacular!

Escort Trailer: Shrine Maiden’s Secret

Welcome.

Welcome.

Hi there everyone.  I’m glad you came, I wanted to talk about something very important with you.  Have a seat by the fireplace and let me bring you the knowledge of a generation.  What’s that?  Why yes, I haven been listening to Ninja Sex Party almost non-stop for the past three hours.  Why do you ask?

I sound like who, now?

I sound like who, now?

So, what’s this super important thing I need to tell you?  Well that’s simple.  Have you heard the news?  What news?  Oh don’t be silly, I know you’ve heard it, already.  I know it for a fact, that you’ve-

 

Just tell me the news!

Just tell me the news!

Okay, okay…

 

Did you hear that I wrote a book?  It’s called Escort.  And it’s currently available.

Oh, you're dead, bitch!

Oh, you’re dead, bitch!

 

Wait, wait…that’s not all!  Did you have any interest in a bit of a free taste of the book?  Because we have a trailer now.  It’s specifically for the first of the three stories in Escort, The Shrine Maiden’s Secret.  Remember when I talked about the art work I was having that artist, Kiersten Nichols do for me?  Well that’s what the art was for — the trailer!

Here’s the voice credits for the trailer in case anyone else was interested in hiring the wonderful folks I hired.  The young lady who performed Matsuuri’s lines preferred not to be credited in the work, so I shall honor her wishes.  The narrator, though, was a talented Brit named Sara Dunham.  Yachiro was played by the new actor handling Gene’s lines in the re-release of Monster, Cary Reese.

Hope you enjoyed the trailer and I hope you enjoy the book even more!
