(Prototype) The Wild Wild Pixel is an expansive point and click adventure game that pays homage to its rich ancestry, while carefully introducing modern day game mechanics such as a UI that is both intuitive and user-friendly, without sacrificing gameplay complexity. We join our protagonist Jacques on the eve of another attempted escape of the valley he was born with, fully expecting to mysteriously fail again, but little does he know that this time he’s about to embark on a journey that will reveal what lies beyond those towering walls.
The Wild Wild Pixel was a project done in unison with Fabian Rastorfer’s graduating thesis project for Parsons, Design and Technology. It was an ambitious project led by Fabian Rastorfer and Ben Miller and heavily relied on dialogue, a story with a major twist and exploration. Only the first out of five chapters was made, as its kickstarter ended at 10k out of 45k. It is currently on hold, despite being greenlit and gaining considerable praise from fans and journalists alike.
- Many intuitive puzzles that are based on logic and exploration.
- No illogical item combinations and needlessly cluttered UI.
- A world that is rich with additional, optional quest lines and interactions.
- Subtle storytelling that the player can interpret over the span of the entire game.
- 4-5 chapters, each clocking at around approximately 5 hours.
- Fully voice acted.
- A helpful hint system based on collecting help coins found through exploration.
