Can you last until dawn? In Petrified, a Source-powered multiplayer game, a band of humans is pitted against an array of statues possessed by evil Watchers—the protectors of the graveyard. A few are coming close when no mortal is looking, looking to steal souls and swell their own numbers. As a statue, you can enjoy the thrill of the hunt waiting for the right time to strike. As a human you’ll be running around a chilling landscape that never moves yet constantly changes, and when you have finally realized which statues are real and which are fake, it may be too late!
This is the video we used for our final presentation (we won the Provost MQP award!). The voice-over is slightly modified from what we said during the presentation, but the content is all there. I apologize for the choppiness of the video, I hope that despite this it will help to demonstrate some of the gameplay of Petrified to those that have not had a chance to play.
