NoseBound on IndieGoGo
Finally Green Lit!!
Description
Release date: Early 2015
Game Description

NoseBound is an old style point and click adventure game that proposes an entangling detective story. By combining entertaining puzzles and dramatic scenes of action, the game sinks the player in a charmed, churned circle of deception, noire ambiance and a very peculiar opponent.

The game will have an episodic structure. Each one will contain one case, one story, always noir, always bizarre, obscure and corrupt.

In the initial Episodes of NoseBound, you play as the character Ray Hammond, a private eye with a gritty past and unorthodox methods to pull off his job. The story brings you back and forth, from the end to the very beginning. Yours is the chance to find out what happened, how it happened, and to live the story by yourself.

The phone rings, you equip yourself with the basic detective gear and off your office you go. You start the investigation, you interrogate some contacts, you snoop around following clues, and as soon as you poke your nose deep enough, the big troubles begin. Troubles you may solve with your wits, or your guns. You would also play with alternate characters, George Smithers A.K.A. Smithy, the strangely disappeared Hammond´s friend and Mrs. Kovacks, the femme fatale that all noire story´s got to have.

To give you an idea of the overall story, without telling that much. The game will intend to be a perfect mixture of a few Lovecraft novels (The Call of Cthulhu and others) with Raymond Chandler (The Big Sleep) and Dashiell Hamett (Red harvest). There is also a great work of reference on several Occult authors. Such as Aleister Crowley, Eliphas Levi, Papus and even Cornelius Agrippa. To give the hole story a more realistic treatment.
And as someone in the comments pointed out. Of course we are influenced by Grim Fandango, but with a much Black (or should I say Noire) sense of humor.

We are Adventure Gamers too, so we know the genre, the style and also the design problems that most of this games had in the past. So we´ll try to avoid the common issues of the genre, like pixel chasing, unrealistic logic, or unnecessary puzzle mechanisms that have nothing to do with what is happening in the story.
