Iris Prototype 1.0 Setup: This game is a Half-Life 2 modification. That means that Steam and Half-Life 2 must be preinstalled for this game to run. Steam...
Iris is a prototype that only exists to demonstrate a specific game concept. There hasn't been a lot of optimization and polishing, so please be gentle :)
What is this game?
The game is an adventure game in which you control a woman in a world where something is totally wrong. Our heroine has a special ability that allows her to jump back to her childhood. In order to solve the main mystery you will have to explore this special ability to solve a number of puzzles.
Why create this game?
There was a time when adventure games ruled the PC market. As computer hardware was improved more action-oriented games were released and today the amount of new adventure games on the market is extremely low. This genre has brought lots and lots of hours of fun to almost everyone playing PC games in the 1990's and we find it unlikely that the current generation of gamers is so different from our generation that they won't get fascinated by an adventure game that doesn't have the 'action' prefix.
What do I control?
You control the heroine who is called Iris. You can freely switch between the present (2024) and the past (2006). When you are playing in the past the present will be on pause and vice versa. You will be able to move around the environment, pick up items, use/combine items, speak to people and give items to people. You play Iris in her present and past, so you don’t travel between the past and the present in such a manor that you can bring items from one time to the other.
Where does the game take place?
The game takes place in a fictional 'Chinatown' in the year 2006 and 2024. Our part of Chinatown consists of a little street with a couple of houses and a small square in the middle. In 2006 the sun is shining, the birds are singing and everything is in extreme harmony. In 2024 it's raining a lot, dark clouds are hanging over the city.
