Chilie, a spicy count’n click
The icehouse, our new artists collective, is happy to announce the release of an atypical project: Chilie, a scripted puzzle and brain-training game.
Homepage of Chilie :
Travelling through an imaginary China, along with her Guardian, Chilie is searching for her missing mother. Chilie is a funny little girl with red hair who loves red chilli-pepper and is very independent and strong-willed. Designed with soft visuals using cell-shading, you will follow the adventures of Chilie and her Guardian, on the road again searching for clues. This interactive story will take you into their everyday life, full of comical situations, where you have to solve simple math-puzzles to progress in the game.
In Chilie, there are 2 different gameplays. The math-puzzles will use your skills in mental calculation. A target number appears on screen, and you have to reach it by choosing the correct operators, with as few moves as you can. To succeed, you’ll have to be clever and calculating, looking for new operators in the changing environments. The second kind of gameplay appears as QTE (quick time events), where you must repeat the arrow sequences displayed on your screen. In both cases, you’ll be rewarded with a score (0 to 3 stars) after each scene of the game. Of course the difficulty evolves, and if it seems quite easy at the beginning, new challenges will soon be added to challenge your brain!
- A funny interactive story, reminiscent of mangas like Yotsuba&! or Hare+Guu
- Progress in the story through QTE scenes and showing your reflexes
- Reach the target number during the easy math puzzles to unlock the next scenes
- Soft graphics in cell-shading similar to games like Okami
