Point and Click Pulp Mystery Adventure Game Announcement - Jack Haunt

Jack Haunt : Old Haunting Grounds is an upcoming point and click pulp mystery adventure game by EvolvingPoet Media for the PC.  In Jack Haunt, you will unravel the house’s ghastly tale, discover whodunit, raise the dead, find your remains and live out the  fantasy of being a dime-store novel detective.  And if you can’t find your body before the sun goes down?  Then its lights out for good for ol’ Jack the Private Investigator.

A Dark History

Investigate the nefarious tale behind the house where Jack died as you help him discover where his remains lie.  Piece together clues about your past life as the story unfolds over 6+ hours of gameplay.  A simplified point and click adventure at heart, Jack Haunt will have you searching the now-abandoned house for clues, while stream lining the complicated elements typical of the genre.

Style to Burn

Experience the dark inner workings of a dangerous mystery from the relative safety of a point and click adventure.  The contrast of the story’s horrendous implications with our hand-drawn graphics and quirky 50′s-cheese writing (and humor?) will keep you on edge without leaving you heaving at explicit gore.

Put Your Soul at Ease

Jack Haunt is built to give you all of the greatness that comes with a traditional point and click adventure game, in a slimmed down way.  Do you have questions/statements like these!?

I used to play point and clicks a lot, but now I have no time!

Jack Haunt provides a concise story with 6+ hours of core gameplay and bite-sized story chunks that make it optimal for start-and-stop play.

But what if I want something more expansive!

Don’t worry, including side quests and exploration, Jack Haunt has more than 10+ of gameplay.

Point and Clicks are so hard though!

Jack Haunt aims to provide the perfect balance between challenging and playability.  Our puzzles make sense and relate to the story, and if you’re having a hard time progressing through the story, you can always use the in-game hint system.

How much will something like this cost?

Probably around $10.
