This project was my final for my Interactive Narrative class while studying abroad in 2018. I was the only developer working on the project. All the art, code, and music was done by me. I recorded and produced most of the sounds as well. (The paper and electricution sounds were downloaded from Soundbible.com

Intent:

        The intent of Key Frames was to make a minimalist (slightly dark) comedy narrative
focused 1 button puzzle game. The game will deal with themes such as loss, family, and identity through the eyes of its main character, Levi. The game is a 1 button game. I chose this primarily to see what kind of content I could make with this constraint

Target Audience

        Curious people who are interested in novel and unconventional mechanics and puzzles, 
narratives, and dark humor.

Context/Environment

        Key frames is a story of an eccentric tinkerer and grandfather named Ted who has just died.
While his family is cleaning out his house, his daughter, Nora, gets a phone call saying that Ted’s will clearly states to donate all of his money to the Pacific Ocean. Nora, her husband, and her 2 adult children leave to try and sort this out. In doing so, they leave the youngest child, Levi, 
behind to clean the house.  
        While cleaning the house, he finds a camera with a tape in it. The tape is a video of Ted 
explaining that in the house there is a safe with another will in it that supersedes the first will. 
The second will gives all of his money to whoever can solve the puzzles to get to it.

Playthrough:

        At some point, an indie let's-player found this game and made a video on it. I've included it here. When he says "Qazik" he's referring to the online alias I used at the time.
