About

INTRODUCTION

Imagine walking down a road one night and hearing a scream. Keep in mind, this road is not a strange road, but a familiar road that you have walked many times both day and night. As the scream catches your attention, you look to the right to see a dirt path running through the woods. Funny, you never remember seeing this path before. You head down the path and come out in a clearing. In the middle of the clearing is an old graveyard surrounded by an old, rusty iron fence. The gate is open so you venture in. The scream is heard again. You look around and see a manor off in the distance. In front of you is a crypt. All of a sudden you feel a sharp pain in the back of the head with a brilliant blue flash of light right before passing out.

You awaken to find yourself in a freshly dug open grave. This wasn’t here previously. Looking around you see a fresh pile of dirt with a shovel in it next to the grave. A lantern is sitting on the gravestone in front of the grave. You also notice the gate to the graveyard has been closed. Off in the distance you hear the screams of the lady again. This is where your adventure begins.

DESCRIPTION

Mansfiel's Manor was orginallky known as Mansfiel's Tomb.  We have decided to take a very short prototype and expand it into Mansfield’s Manor. Mansfield's Manor is set up as a first person view game.  The objective of the game is to move the player around and solve a variety of puzzles to try to rescue a lady in distress.  Some of the puzzles are very easy while others offer a great challenge to solve.  As the puzzles are solved, the player moves along a preset storyline.  The player eventually goes from the graveyard where he is into the manor.  While continuously solving puzzles and exploring, the adventurer is given hints about other puzzles as well as the unfolding storyline.  Will the story turn out the way the player thinks it will?  There is only one way to find out.

For a downloadable and playable version of Mansfield's Tomb, please visit www.fatcatstudios.net.  Mansfield's Manor will be a totally revamped game starting with Mansfield's Tomb.  The final version of Mansfield's Manor is expected to support the following operating systems: PC, OS X, Linux and Android. 

FUNDING

The funds raised through your contributions will go purchase Maya 2013 for another modeler as well as the full Unity Pro package to help develop for more platforms including the Android.  There will be better assets and graphics in the game as well as more game play.  It is my hopes to take "Mansfield's Tomb", which is the demo, and not only rebuild it to today's standards, but add on to it as well.  This means making a full mansion with 20+ rooms and filled with puzzles.  I am also planning on not only making puzzles for most rooms, but making extra puzzles so the game is randomized with different puzzles each time the game is started.  This in itself will take lots of time and manpower which the funds will be used.

Risks and challenges

The main risks that comes with completing my project will probably be the assets. There is a lot of 3D modeling to be done. Although we have limited resources to accomplish this task, with the proper funds, more assets can be written in the schedule due to more modelers and designers being added to the team. Another benefit to the ability of adding more members to the team is the game ships earlier than expected and allows for more interactive content in the game.

Another potential challenge is the puzzles themselves. There are several steps involved in making puzzles. The initial design has to be done with solutions. The assets (models) have to be produced. And finally, the programming or scripting has to be completed. We are capable of adding 20 more puzzles to the game. An increase in the current budget will allow additional puzzles to be added to the game.
