Description

Our concept is simple: Saving Mikey is a chooseable-path adventure game built on plain text messages from a young boy, who went missing in an infected area after "Lyssa", a very dangerous rabies-like virus started to spread silently. You have to help him survive and reach the safe zone by telling him what to do when he faces different situations and threats during his journey. We mixed the classic „road trip in an apocalyptic world” genre with our all-time favourites: the interactive Fighting Fantasy books from the 80's.

History

We started the work on Saving Mikey in 2018. From the beginning we thought we need a little boy as a protagonist who really need the help of the player to survive. Peter started the prototype of the story in Twine and after a quick export, he spent months to create the story in details, and write the final text, also he created the app design in multiple iterations. The illustrations in the game were painted by one of our friends.

Features

  • Long story with multiple possible routes to discover
  • Map to check where Mikey is at the moment
  • Live mode allows the player to play like the events are happening in real time (default)
  • Fast mode allows the player to play without waiting minutes/hours to have an answer from Mikey
  • Checkpoint system is implemented to have a good backup position in case something happens with the protagonist (actively used feature according to player feedbacks :))
  • The player gets notifications in case Mikey got something to say after some idle/waiting time
