Adventure Game Scene of the Day — Friday 07 June 2013

This is one of the shortest commercial adventure games I’ve ever played. It’s called Bad Milk (2000). It only took me about 30-40 minutes to finish.

Despite being a terrible bang for the buck, what’s there is actually pretty decent. The most notable part of the game involves having to navigate the game world with only sound as your guide, an idea that sounds dreadful at first, but is implemented so well that it wasn’t a problem at all.

There are a few simple puzzles and various other interactive scenes as well, but overall it’s more a piece of interactive art than a full blown adventure game. I liked what little content there was though.

Never heard of this one but the using sound for gameplay reminds me of a recent game that got kickstarted: Pulse
Interesting experience, not many games like these I think

Never heard of this game either (again).

Can you tell a bit more about the use of sound as your guide? Is it noises in general or music, and how does it work?

I’m intrigued, it definitely sounds like a unique concept…

Bad Milk featured ONCE & TWICE in the best thread these forums have, but you folks (apparently) don’t care about good threads.

There’s no rule against browsing (great) threads before one became a member here.

The sequence plays out just like you are blind. If you try to walk in a direction you can’t, you will bump into the wall. All the noises in the environments are natural ambiance and there is only music if an area you go into happens to have music playing there, just like in real life.

It’s actually pretty cool. Much like how your imagination fills in the visuals when you read a book, your mind does the same when you only have sound.

This is certainly an idea I’d love to see expanded upon in a game with higher production values. A first person game with a sequence in the dark, or where you’re temporarily blinded, could be very cool.

I love all these weird games you’re posting, Bastich (along with the positive tone). Definitely need to fill out my library with some of these oddities.

Interesting thought. Thumbs Up

I don’t want an entire game like that, Jack, just bits and pieces here and there - and the experience needs to be top notch!

I agree with Kasper that I’d like to see that as an added bit of gameplay at some plot-specific point in a game, not as a full game. And it should also be PC compatible, not iOS only… Tongue
