Detective Story

Detective Story was completed as part of the Intermediate Game Projects class in USC’s Interactive Media Division. Play as a pulp detective novelist and the protagonist of your own story at the same time. Based on an experimental idea of emergent narrative, we tried to create a game that would allow the player to tell the story through the eyes of a writer and experience it as the detective at the same time and using the same mechanic. Whether the player achieves success or failure depends on the player’s ability to “connect-the-dots.”
