A Macedonian game development company has developed a 3D puzzle/mystery/adventure game type of Escape Room. The company has already published the first chapter of the computer game and is looking for technological partners for further development of the game under technical cooperation agreement.
A Macedonian independent game development studio founded in 2015 is dedicated on developing own computer games. The company has a goal to develop cutting edge video games and to become a leader in the video game field with its state of the art technologies and developing video games techniques. The studio has developed a 3D puzzle game, type of Escape Room, with story behind. The story is about 38-year old police detective whose father, an eminent astrophysics scientist, disappeared under suspicious circumstances. The player’s main goal in the first chapter of the game is to find a way to escape from the cabin where he is being held kidnapped. The game has Sci-Fi elements where the player will travel through time and space using ancient ball that is not from this world, even going on another universe on the other planet. The first chapter is finishing with sending the player through time and space, 30 years before and at the new location. The game is presented with an option to play in either first-person or third-person – switchable at any time even when playing. It uses an auto-save mechanism, but also the player can save manually every moment during playing the game. This gives the player more control to make a break from the game and continue later from the point of stop, not from the last checkpoint. The game can be played with keyboard and mouse, but also full controller is supported. Moreover, the game also distinguishes from the other adventure games in randomization. Each time the player begins a new game, more than 70% of the items that he needs to collect and 90% of the combinations for solving the puzzles are randomly generated. This offers an added layer of re-playability, as whenever the player starts over there will be different places to search and different combinations to solve. The first installment of the game is already published and available on the Steam store for Windows PC. The game will have a total of four chapters altogether and the Macedonian company is looking for game development companies experienced in developing 3D computer games for providing expertise and skills for further development of the next chapters of the game.
