Stevan and Erkki have been working on these projects separately until now, but have recently decided it best to combine their powers.

Mostly plays like an old-school adventure game, this is a remake of Ben 'Yahtzee' Croshaw's free 2D adventure game "5 Days a Stranger" (made with AGS), which has received numerous awards in the adventure community. The game is set in the modern times and takes place in a manor in Enland, during a period of 5 days. It has elements of mystery and horror games, but there is very little action involved. Work on the mod was started already in December of 2003, but stopped in May. It was resumed in November of 2004 and a lot of progress was made in about 3 weeks -- it turned from some modifications to the engine and interface into something actually playable. A pre-alpha quality demo with placeholder assets is not far from completion. Most of the story and dialogues will be taken from the original game. Additions to the story, however, have not yet been done.
Langhorne Underground, the second game in our itinerary, sports a
story vaguely inspired by H. P. Lovecraft and to a greater extent by
Vladimir Nabokov. Casual readers of the former, but only the maniacal
scholars of the latter, will pick out the references. The game is
envisioned as a Half Life 2 mod. It was begun as a 2D third person
adventure game using AGS as its engine in March of 2004, but it gradually became more and more apparent that it would benefit
drastically from an action-adventury 3D gameplay. As a result, part of
the 2D version is finished, but there are no finished assets for the
3D version (aside from the story and the soundtrack) and it would have
to be begun from scratch.
