About

Our Flash game 'Bela Kovacs and The Trail of Blood' has been completed. We decided to make this first episode of our film noire point-n-click investigation-adventure game FREE and if you people really like it, then it may yearn for a sequel, a subsequent episode.

That is why we need your support. With the necessary funds at hand we can produce the next episode, and as such, the adventures of Bela Kovacs and the players backing him can go on.

Want to find out how a game like this is produced? Take a look:

Everything begins with an idea. Where ideas comes from, you can never know for sure. Games like anything else that's produced, however, must be thoroughly designed, an idea is worthless in itself.

When designing a game one must pick a genre, a theme, has to lay out basic game mechanics, user interfaces, write a story, define characters – and with Bela especially, make up puzzles. The important thing is that mechanic, dramatic and system elements all work together towards a unique gameplay experience.

With Bela Kovacs and The Trail of Blood we think we did just that. While playing Bela you can immerse in a dark, suspenseful setting, find clues and resolve puzzles intuitively, in a self-rewarding way, thus catching the bad guy in the very end.

With Bela Kovacs we took point-n-click adventure games to the next level. We hired a professional photographer to shoot all settings and characters on location. Then, we took the images and they were digitally enhanced and hand drawn(!) upon giving Bela an entirely unique, artistic look.

The music score and sound of Bela is yet another effort to fit the mood and support the game in creating a suspenseful, yet hope-lifting atmosphere.

Another important task is to pick the right platform where one's game can be best played and easily delivered to you, the player. Flash seemed to be the obvious choice, and our developer managed to engineer the code in a way that it can be reused for this type of game again and again. Also, the game has language support.

If you're anxious to find out, you'll have to play the game.

Warning! She's not easily seduced. ;)

Bela's future is entirely up to you. All we can say is that we'd already drafted ten (that's right, 10) Bela episodes, all waiting in a drawer to be produced.

If you like the first episode, 'The Trail of Blood' and you'd like to see more, then by all means, back us in producing the next episode.

Thank you All.
