Hoodwink has been Greenlit!
Hoodwink sneaks on to the Greenlight SUPERSHOW
Description
Hoodwink is an adventure game set in a unique world inspired by Red Dwarf and classic LucasArts games

Get acquainted with Michael Bezzle; small time acquisitions expert in the decaying slums of the metropolis - Global-01.

Michael has met the girl of his dreams: savvy, sophisticated, funny and gorgeous, pawn shop owner Francesca Jones seems like quite the catch.

Love is in the air for him but when his final caper goes awry, Michael must flee for his life as he sets off to uncover the truth behind UniCorp, the world's last corporate giant.

Follow Michael through this vibrant adventure game as he meets outrageous characters and explores the brightest dystopia you will ever see.


Mixed Nuts

Meet a range of quirky characters, from hawkers peddling rat meat and delusional cyborgs to brainwashed and politely vicious lawmen.

Be they friend or foe, the many colorful personae of Hoodwink will help and hinder Michael on his adventure.


Adventure across a world gone mad

Set across the sprawling sectors of Global-01, Hoodwink features the ramshackle and ingenious underbelly of a society ruled by the world's last corporation.

A twisted future with absurdly dark humor, Hoodwink reveals an insane world with vile conspiracy and corporate-themed satire, making the brightest dystopia you've ever seen, all to the catchy beats composed by the award-winning Leon Willett.


Features
  • Detailed Oriental Post-Apocalyptic Environments
  • Fully voiced over cast of colourful characters
  • Music from award winning composer Leon Willet

“The world of Global-01 is gorgeous. It's wrecked and slummish and stunning. On high resolutions, every tile in its Asian-inspired mosaics shows and every shadow on its cel-shaded garbage holds multitudes...

...the art and voice acting are delightfully fun, and the post-apocalyptic noir-ridiculous setting is one after my own heart. In the end, for an adventure game lover or anyone who doesn't mind poking some gentle, sideways fun at all the tropes and conventions from the long-gone era of Raymond Chandler, Hoodwink may be worth a look”

“As with most titles in the genre, Hoodwink’s initial appeal is in its story and aesthetic, something that could be best described as what would happen if the Maltese Falcon and 1984 had a child that lived in a cel-shaded fairytale world. If that hasn’t sold you, then you are clearly not imagining it right”

“The screenshots don't really do Hoodwink justice, as the game itself looks far better and much less blurry in action. The cel-shaded graphics are a pleasure to look at even if the world itself is far from pretty, with garbage everywhere and patched-up buildings in obvious states of decay...

...In the end, I was left wanting to know more about this world and the quirky characters that inhabit it, so Hoodwink should be considered a successful start to a new series in that respect.”

“So I set out to play this game as a veteran FPS\RTS gamer, I wanted to see if I could enjoy this genre and actually stick it out. Well I can say I finished the game and if episode 2 of Hoodwink came out, I would happily play it. The story line and jokes In the game gave me a chuckle, the visuals were fantastic and the audio I loved. It managed to keep me playing through and I enjoyed a lot of it, so E-One has succeeded in getting a non point and click gamer interested in the genre, gratz!”

I don't get why you have waited so long for it to appear in the Steam Store...
I completed the whole game available (Episode 1) in the mid-summer of 2012! :)
You can still buy it on many services, just choose your prefered one from here: http://e-onestudio.com/store/ ;)

Not to bother a 2 year old greenlight campaign per se, but the last thing I see here is "thank you we've been greenlit" without any mention of an actual storepage as per other greenlit titles etc. Did the dev team run past their budget and have to drop the project before completion? Did some kind of cyber illuminati have a bone to pick with the concept? Or did the developers just go in a vastly more time consuming, intricate direction with the idea? I was somewhat excited for this game as it looked like a fresh twist on story based gameplay, but after a few years of waiting I'd honestly forgotten about it. Did the game come out under another title that was never linked perhaps? I guess it's all a moot point at the end of the day, but some feedback from the dev team/community organizers would be pretty nice after such a long time.

This Game is 3rd Person view correct? It appears to be so but just making sure because I get severe motion sickness from 1st person view. Is there any places in Game where action scenes can be a Game stopper if not overcome? I hope if there is you also add an option to skip
