If it’s not apparent by now, I love adventure games. Especially point -and -click titles that have an interesting story. If it has some unique or quirky gameplay feature, I’m all the more for it. In the case of Mystery of Woolley Mountain, it certainly has an interesting premise and the tale of “audio scientists” has piqued my interest. Outside of the idea of a group of scientists who are also musicians, there’s not a whole lot to the plot right now.
Let me explain. According to the pitch, Mystery of Woolley Mountain is a tale about music and the quest to save some children from an evil witch. There is more to it, but we don’t know much more than that. However, sometimes just the basic plot is enough to want to know more. The characters sound colorful and the merging of science and music likewise. It’s your traditional point-and-click game, so it’s not trying to reinvent the wheel, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing.
James Lightfoot mentioned in the pitch for Mystery of Woolley Mountain he’s intent on releasing the game one way or the other, citing the desire to finish it for recently passed on friends and fans of adventure games. I can get behind this, as I’m a sucker for crowdfunded campaigns that want to do more than just release a game.
And if you’re the kind that wants to “try before you buy”, there is a demo that you can play through before making your decision. I know that I’ll be giving it a spin.
