Description
Release date: As soon as it's Greenlit! (It's already out on the 360.)
Your roommate's a serial killer, your RA's in love with you, and all your best friends are miles away. Is this really what college is like?

Life in the Dorms brings the spirit of classic point-and-click adventure games to the modern day. Join Dack Peeples—a kid who started feeling homesick before he even left home—as he tries to survive all the typical college orientation activities, like meeting your hallmates, going on scavenger hunts...fighting bears...performing unlicensed surgery on your friend's mom...and ultimately learning the true meaning of ramen noodles. (I mean friendship.)

It's a point-and-click adventure game, so you'll be presented with a series of challenges that you'll have to overcome by interacting with other characters, collecting objects from your environment, and using and combining them to progress the game's story. There are no sim elements to this game; it's pure story and adventure.

Top bullet points of the game include:
  • Bears! Murder! …Icebreakers!
  • An engrossing coming-of-age tale about blah blah blah
  • Sharp dialogue and classic point-and-click puzzles!
  • A crossover with the hit corporate-simulator Office DisOrders
  • All new controls for the PC!
  • Is already a completed videogame[marketplace.xbox.com]

Life in the Dorms also introduces a brand-new, social networking-inspired interaction to the adventure game oeuvre: Dack can post "Flitter" updates about everything and everyone in the game—in fact, he'll have to, in order to solve many of the game's challenging puzzles.

“A great point-and-click adventure.” – Signed In Podcast

“A storyline with genuine humor.” – Writings of Mass Destruction

“Who knew trying to outsmart a bear would be so fun?” – XCLANN

“I dare you not to crack a smile at all the odd characters and Dack’s increasingly strange musings on life.” – Xboxer 360

"Its oddball plot and humor help it make the grade." -- Adventure Gamers

“At every other turn in this game, something outrageously absurd is happening. … it takes a simple situation, pushes it to the extreme, and then puts a completely twist-ending on the punchline.” – Adventure Lantern

"I'm crying my butt off!" - One of our early Let's Players.

This looks a WHOLE lot better than the cat game. I'm interested in seeing how this one develops.

That is a really awesome idea for a game. I thin they could improve a lot of things though.
