About this project
The game will take place in Maryland inside a building that is going to be placed on a real life location, Maryland State Mental Hospital for the insane, which is the second oldest mental hospital in the world.
You play as Jack Callanan, a security guard working the night shift on your very first day of the job. You will begin by completing the checklist that your boss had sent you in an email, things that you need to do for the job. The build is abandoned and your main job is to keep out trespassers. You have a full security room available to you, with cameras that show the major rooms in the building. but you frequently have to leave that room to do your nightly rounds within the building. As the night goes on, things become extremely creepy.
The idea came to mind when thing about an asylum. Why were they there in the first place? A lot of them saw things that couldn't be explained. The mental disorders were a huge inspiration and I wonder how I could use it. The scares, a lot of them, could range from a scary clown to a simple bug. The place is haunted by the patient there that were one alive, so what they saw in their heads is what you will experience playing this game, their and hallucinations come to life.
Risks and challenges
I currently have the first floor complete and let me say, it is a huge building, it really is going to be a challenge to fill the level completely. I want this to be the best experience, So I am trying to not cut parts out of the game. Worst case scenario, the game will be delayed to up to a month, but my main goal is to have it complete by October 31st this year.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
