After a few years break from creating the Point and Click game Bayou Island, I've decided to make a new game called "The Halloween Game" in time for the holidays. It also has a game creator so that others can make their own Point and Click Games which I'll be releasing later on, you can see a video of it here.

The url to the game is = https://www.andy-howard.com/halloween-game

I'm a front end developer and I've always wanted Point and Click games to be accessible via the web instead of always having to install apps. Unfortunately when I started this journey 5 years ago there was no lightweight solution in order to deliver such an experience. I think I've now managed to achieve all the typical features that one would expect in a Point and Click game.

These include:
- Inventory
- Npcs
- Music
- Sound fx
- Voice acting
- Cut scenes
- Playing as multiple characters
- Close up puzzles and more...


Some under the hood features include:
- Lazy loading of rooms as you enter them (since memory is limited on mobile devices).
- Sound sprites of voice acting
- Runs off a JSON file, no database required


Some future features I'd like to include:
- Lip syncing
- Ability to walk and talk at the same time
- Escorting procedures (allow both playable characters and npcs to follow you).

So please have a play and any feedback will be greatly received. Only thing I ask is please look upon this in a development perspective rather than the quality of the story and puzzles (I'm not great at those :))

As I have mentioned I also have an accompanying game creator which will allow you to make your own games. Your feedback on the demo game will help me finely tune the game creator before I release that too.

Quick frankly if I had ever known it was going to take me this long to do - I never would have started it. However it has certainly kept me busy and focused throughout covid-19.


Many thanks,

Andrew Howard.

Really nice game!

I like the retro style

I'm also interested in your point and click game creator, sounds so neat. Is good to see people making these creative projects when we have to stay home, because just the creative people (always moving) is going to go throughout. I wish you all the luck on your project.

Thank you for your kind words ☺️ Game creator is getting there slowly. I think it’s good to focus on a project right now with all that is going on in the world
