Relive the days of classic gaming with The Filmmaker, a text adventure tribute to the traditional Hollywood "B-movie" in which players take on the role of young cinephile Brianna Auberon as she explores a haunted theater.


The Filmmaker is the third in a series of text adventures that combines the best elements of interactive fiction, visual novels, and gamebooks with a graphic user interface that emulates the look of early 1990s text adventures. It features beautiful artwork and cinematic music. In place of a text parser is a context-specific multiple choice menu. A compass allows you to travel from room to room, and separate inventory, map, journal, and character screens are available at the push of a button.

It plays like an interactive novel. You make a series of choices that determine what happens next in the story. But unlike in traditional gamebooks and visual novels, The Filmmaker also features more advanced adventure-based game mechanics, including locations to explore, items to interact with, characters to meet, and puzzles to solve.


The Carson Stiles Gateway Theater was once the hotspot of town, featuring its own series of low-budget B-movies produced by renowned filmmaker Claude Ferucil.

Unfortunately, the theater closed several months ago after a series of gruesome murders. This came as a huge disappointment to Brianna, a huge B-movie buff who faithfully attended every new showing with her recently-passed father.

Imagine Brianna's surprise then, when she received a letter in the mail inviting her to the theater's grand re-opening. Little did she realize, however, that she was in for a bit more than she bargained for...
