The Chernobyl Mine
< THE GAME HAS BEEN CANCELLED> You may still play it, but there will be no more updates to this game!
The finished game will feature a puzzle in a 3D environment, which the player must solve to win. Although "escape" is probably a better word.
You're a miner, working off of the Ukrainian city of Chernobyl. The entire area is known to be intoxicated with nuclear waste, and is supremely dangerous, but the radiation has indeed affected certain minerals under the earth causing a massive growth of precious crystals such as diamond and onyx. This growth spurt is also the cause for frequent cave ins, as the rock tears through any man-made tunnels that are built. The radiation has been affecting something else too...
During another day at work, worst comes to worst, and a cave in begins around an area occupied my miners. No-one survives except one young Russian miner: "Anton". The cave in has blocked the only main route out of the mines, so he has to find another way. This is where the game begins. You first wander along countless corridors and tunnels in hope to find day light. Along your way, you find a mining elevator that leads to the surface, however, the inevitable - it's not working. It requires a flowing circuit of electricity, sourced from a pump room that you find in the vicinity. Unfortunately, you're a miner, not an electrician, so you decide to find a manual to work the circuitry.
The mine is a mess, due to panic during the cave in and the last pages of the manual are scattered around the place. You've got to find the pages, turn on the electricity and get out. But wait. What's that behind you?
The above is an idea of what the final game will feature. The introductory sequence is the part from where you wake up after being struck by falling debris, and where you find the section with the elevator and pump room. This is what I'm presenting to you now. Give it a gander and tell me what you think.
Would be great if you gave feedback on these points:
- changes from prior version (if you tried it)
- ambiance and sound effects
- whether you were scared / nervous
- the feel of the game
- user friendliness / easy interaction
