Hi there Smile

My name is Marc, from France, I am the developer of the indie game project called Ama’s Lullaby. Let me show you what it is about!

Ama’s Lullaby is an adventure game in the style of Westwood Studios’ Blade Runner (1997), featuring a command-line based hacking system. The game is developed by me.

The target platforms are PC, Mac & Linux.
The release is planned for Spring 2019.

The project is now live on Kickstarter, from February 8 to March 25.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1005143815/amas-lullaby-a-point-and-click-game-in-a-cyberpunk


The story

After the announcement of a potential impact between Earth and an asteroid, a space mission of colonization lead by an AI brings a young computer-science prodigy called Ama to the 1st colony on another planet. This place was built by machines for human beings. Ama has designed this AI together with her father and is now an ambassador of the human race. She’s being protected by her artificial creature. But when she finds out the actual reason of her presence in this colony, and notices the strange behaviour of its inhabitants, her world suddenly falls apart.



The game

Ama’s Lullaby is a point-and-click video game taking place in a cyberpunk environment. Playing the role of Ama, a high potential teenager who loves computer sciences, you will explore the colony, meet its human and non-human inhabitants, negociate with the AI and make decisions that will impact directly the course of events. Thanks to Ama’s programming talent, you will be able to hack any network of the city, gather information, steal confidential data to use them for your own purposes, disclose them or even blackmail people. But be careful : every action will have consequences on the story, and you will become an easy prey once you identity is unveiled.
The game development will focus mainly on high-quality visual atmospheres and soundscapes dialogues and interactions between characters, as well as on replayability: every new game session offering a (truly) different experience.


Feel free to ask anything you want about the project on this forum, comments and feedbacks are welcome Smile

And if you like what I have done, please back the project on Kickstarter, only some days left and we still have some way to go.

Thanks for reading!

Backed. I really like the gritty art style and the static camera. When I played Her Majesty’s Spiffing I found the moving camera really annoying, I think you guys have done it better.

Good luck! Smile

Thank you for your support Smile I believe the static camera is a more cinematographic approach, I like it that way.

This definitely looks promising - I loved Blade Runner and more recently Dex, and this reminds me of both. And command-line hacking too? OK, backed!

I played Dex some months ago, I liked it too! It has this great cyberpunk atmosphere. And I did’t play a 2D scroll game since Street of Rage on Megadrive ^^
Thank you for backing the project, I hope we will make it!

You had me as a backer right up until I read about the weapons/fights scenes. I have no reflexes, and suck at QTE’s. If there isn’t a way to avoid the fights, unfortunately this will be a no-buy for me. Other than that, this sounds awesome!

I’m not looking for QTE for combats, but something like this:

. It’s not as stressful as QTE, in my opinion Smile
There will not be a lot of fights because your character, Ama, dosn’t like to fight. But in some situations, you’ll have no other choice. Thank you for your feedback!
