The Lunatic Review
The Lunatic game was conceptualized and created in 7 weeks by a small and dedicated team of student developers at the School of Game Development at the Academy of Art University. I love the concept of waking up in the mental asylum and trying to find out what’s going on as they try to escape. The characters being sprites is definitely a pretty nice and unique touch. While reminding old school games, the sprites actually serve a good purpose of making the ghost figures more believable and eerie, not to mention they were probably faster to make. The subtle whispers that echo through your ears as you explore the rooms contributes a great deal to the overall feel of the game, the voice acting is also well done and is a really nice touch to the game. All in all it is a pretty enjoyable experience, even though somewhat short. Hopefully we will see a finished game in the future!
