Brian Cullen is launching You Are Not A Banana, on Steam Greenlight. Although retro, YNB attempts to break with convention by emphasizing the importance of sound in the design of the game's missions/puzzles and by focusing on alternative themes, such as critiquing the art world and retelling personal narratives.
Brian Cullen was a postdoctoral fellow with the Games Institute and IMMERSe in 2012-2013. You can find more about Brian here.
About the game:
You Are Not A Banana is a single player adventure game set in everyday life that has a sprinkle of imagination and humor. The retro music, sound effects, visuals and gameplay seek to evoke nostalgia for the 80s and 90s. The story unfolds as sequence of thought provoking events but I don't want to ruin any surprises. YNB has a distinct beginning, middle and end, however, think Seinfeld rather than Heavy Rain.
