Twelve Absent Men (PC Edition)

Hi all,

Twelve Absent Men is now available on Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.atreyugames.twelveabsentmen

I’m working on a legal drama video game, to be released on mobile and eventually in a 3D PC port/upgrade. (Mobile version set for release in Q4 2016).

Twelve Absent Men is a satirical legal adventure game with comedic characters, an enthralling storyline and a polished, modern cartoon look. Solve puzzles, confound witnesses and outwit the state prosecutor in this race to that crucial verdict: not-guilty!

We’ve just released our full feature trailer for mobile!!!

Take a look here:

Here are some shots of my approach to the 3D art so far.

Any comments are welcome. :slight_smile:

Looks very promising! I Can not wait to see more of this. Looks like an interesting story too :slight_smile:

Thanks! Should be updating this thread every week or so. :slight_smile:

It seems like only a couple of the assets cast shadows?

Yeah - I’ve had a couple of shadow issues with the city level in particular, but I think the latest build has fixed said issues.

(Here’s a link to the mobile version. Check it out.)

The game will feature an entirely original soundtrack. :slight_smile:

**Here’s the theme song: **

Looks intruiging and refreshing! Really liking the interior screens! Well done!

Is this a 2.5 kind of gameplay then? 3D environments in a 2D gameplay mode? Personnaly, I wouldn’t go for cartoonish rendered 2D images, but for complete 3D, but I guess that would make it a bit more difficult to develop on mobile, eh?

Anyways, nice work so far!

There’s a mobile and PC version - so producing both at once, obviously the PC version will probably take twice as long, just thought I’d share some early screenshots of it.

As for the mobile - I’m aiming to do full cartoon. :smiley:

The mobile version of the game was recently featured on TouchArcade! :smiley:

Hey all,

Working on a new UI for the mobile version of Twelve Absent Men! :smiley:

Inspired by the legal drama genre, the game combines elements of satire and humour with the seriousness of a court of law. It is self-aware in following the “mythic” traits of legal dramas: that law is comedic, justice is swift, the right side always wins and judges have an (almost) infinite amount of patience.

Push the judge too hard, however, and you’ll lose the game entirely, and be held in contempt of court!

The game is set for release on Android (Nov, 2016).

Here’s a sneak peak:

A few more screenshots/improvements made. :smiley:

And here’s a list of gameplay features:

General Features:

  • Slick, modern cartoon look, with original characters, backgrounds and animations.
  • Satirical, comedic narrative, with a focus on witty, back-and-forth dialogue.
  • Detailed and enthralling introductory video – showcasing the scene of the crime in classic detective fiction style.
  • Incredible original soundtrack and effects.
    [/list]

Gameplay Features:

  • Logic puzzle gameplay. Find the best way to win the case!
