About

The Master's Minion.

The Story? A story about love, slavery, torture, problem alcoholism and "words" that only certain people can understand.

You play as Igor, Dr. Frankenstein's faithful and simple minion servant. He speaks in broken, Tarzan-like English and varied grunts. He runs errands, he does chores, disposes of corpses, etc. He's helpful and a really nice guy under that ugly exterior.

What ever happened to old-fashioned Point and Click Adventure games? Those with humour that makes you laugh silently inside. Stories that you could talk to your friends about at a later date when you've run out of things to say. Original Music that brings a sense of well being and sounds that are just there to make the game come alive in all the right places. Art that is unique and mysterious which will leave you looking in all the wrong places. Well, we hope to deliver on these things.

Meet the Minion:

About the Game? Our aim is to become one with the greats, such as the games Monkey Island, Machinerium, Deponia series, Leisure Suit Larry, but set in a fantasy world of monsters.

Missions include such things as:

  • fixing lab equipment
  • running errands
  • fetching corpses

Do well, and you may be rewarded with an old turnip. Which to Igor, is the best treat of all. He just loves to lick turnips.

Your master is somewhat hard to please and a bit of a perfectionist. You bring him bodies, and there's usually something wrong with them... Female, male, too drunk, too good-looking, not good-looking enough, etc. Igor protests, "Flearghhh."

Places of Interest in game would include (but not limited to):

  • an everyday run down graveyard
  • a local bar where most of the community spend their nights (and days)
  • a castle with several rooms built for a single elderly wealthy person who has strange hobbies
  • a dark alley
  • a forest
  • and a town center

More information? If you like dark, in your face humour, then this game is right up your alley. But hopefully not an alley where you would meet Igor on a dark night seeking out Master's "subjects".

The game will be available on Steam, but we'll also provide a DRM free version.

Costings?

What do we need funding for? Skip the long story... Basically, we want to make a great game that is beautiful to look at, nice to listen to, and will bring you to an uncontrollable giggling state whilst following the storyline. We have an idea, and we need money to make this happen.

More Money?

If we hit the target and then exceed it, we will look into expanding the game with new places, new characters, extra story lines depending on what that amount may be. However we would still like to get the game out on time, so we might add this on as free DLC at a later day, so everyone's happy.

Developers?

We are a couple of indie game developers who have come together in the hope of bringing an idea to life. Between us, we have over 30 years experience in the game industry. If you want to know more about us, you can check out our websites linked below. The art will be done by @WindybeardGames, while the coding/development of the game will be taken on by @ArcticArcade. But we're both going to be involved in the strange stories that lie ahead...

Risks and challenges

This game will be our first collaborative Point and Click adventure game that we are bringing to Steam. It is a collaboration between Arctic Arcade and WindybeardGames.

The risks are pretty small. We work hard and we like to get things done. I don't like to put time frames on things personally, but if things were to slip back a bit for the sake of having a better quality game, then I would hope it would be understandable. But, non the less, we would keep you posted on progress and any issues we may come across along the way.
