Post news RSS Announcing ADventure Lib!

ADventure Lib could have been a respectable adventure game, except that it is totally wacky, randomized and full of terrible puns! When everything gets swapped around, who knows where the adventure could go?

There is something distinctly odd about the world of ADventure Lib. Maybe it is the fire-breathing kitten that flew down from the mountains to besiege the castle. Or perhaps it is your beloved toilet who is not quite as clean or living as you imagined. Or maybe it's simply that you have no clue how to open the potato of legend to obtain the glorious golden peasants inside (although, on second thought, you begin to wonder why you wanted the glorious golden peasants in the first place...)

The Title Screen

But all that is beside the point. As the brave and noble screwdriver, it is your duty to solve the problems in the land, not sit around contemplating the oddness of it. And, this is a good thing too, because as a screwdriver, you are noticeably lacking a mind with which to think.

This is just one possible scenario you might find within ADventure Lib. Try replacing the red words above with other random objects, and you might discover another possible scenario. You see, ADventure Lib is all about swapping the people, objects and items around in random and always ridiculous ways. To make this point a little clearer, here is the official trailer, with the narrator inexplicably swapped with a chicken:

To progress the story, you will need to figure out what is supposed to be what (with a few hints), and then make ridiculous combinations to solve outlandish puzzles. But, if you've played a point & click adventure before, you have probably already done something similar.

Combine Items

The random objects also allow for some great (and terrible) puns that will appear in different playthroughs based on what objects are swapped with what!

Fish Puns!

ADventure lib is a relatively short game that we made as an experiment/side project. It is close to done, with the only major feature missing right now being voice acting. Yes, I will be adding voice acting to the game, as it is too funny not to. It will be handled like those automated voice tellers, where the swapable words will be inserted cookie-cutter style. The game is also designed to be very mod-able, so if you want to add your own objects, translations, or even entire scenes/dialogue/events, that is all doable without a line of code (just mucking about some XML files). If you're interested in learning more, just leave a comment or send me a message!
