Hey guys! I think I have great idea for adventure game

06hc.jpg09hc.jpg

Game based on short mystery books, popular in USA in 60's called "Alfred Hitchcock and the Three Investigators." Each book tells us about mystery that solved buy three guys - Jupiter Jones, Pete Crenshaw and Bob Andrews.
The three boys who call themselves The Three Investigators are Bob Andrews, Pete Crenshaw, and Jupiter Jones, all of whom live in
Rocky Beach, a small city on be shore of the Pacific Ocean some miles from
Hollywood. They solving mysteris and crimes, riding and then tell them to Alfred Hitchcock, every book started with this. They have Headquarters. Is an old thirty-foot home trailer which they have equipped
with an office, a photographic darkroom and a tiny laboratory, and hidden from public view behind towering piles of ordinary junk so that it must be entered through certain secret passages which they have constructed.

Why this game should be made by TellTalegames?

Genre of Three Investigators is adventure-detective. I think by creating Sam and Max series you guys gained experience.

Game mechanic that based on special abilitis of each character like in Maniac Mansion:
Jupiter is intelligent, stocky and has a remarkable memory and deductive skills.
Pete is an athletic youth who dislikes dangerous situations, but is nonetheless reliable as the "action member" of the team.
Bob Andrews, who is small but wiry, is something of a scholarly type, although
with an adventurous spirit.

Story of Three Investigators have same style that TV Show series "Alfred Hitchcock Presents". Maybe I wrong but - new season of S&M hase exactly same style.

  • I think this depends on the specific developer/company/project. There exist both, good and bad examples, just like everywhere else.

    Yes TTG this exacly what we need to get good and quality project about three investigators. I think many people from TTG audiotry will like this universe.

  • For germany this would probably workout, both from the way TTG does their games with the mainstream appeal as well as from the audience which buys three investigators radioplays since decades. I have no idea about the other countries though.

  • USA is country where Three Investigators was born and i am shure game about them will be popular.

  • Three Investigators isn't that mainstream, unfortunately, which guarantees lesser sales. I think a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles adventure game is more likely, if we are throwing out ideas

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles adventure game?! Are you crazy. Some mutant turtles going around and talking with peoples, trying to solve some puzzle? Did anyone buy it? I dont think so. And why three investigators is not mainstream?
    This is one of the most popular book serias in 60s, like harry potter nowdays.

    Sorry to say this, but... Being one of the most popular book series in the 60's doesn't mean much in 2011. Just saying. Also, TURTLE POWER!!!

  • As someone who is A) big into reading, B) big into adventure games, C) pretty close to the average age of today's video gamer, I can tell you that I have never heard of The Three Investigators and it's definitely not mainstream. To me it sounds very similar to the Hardy Boys, who are much more well known.

    A) Hardy Boys is not so quality shit books written by some ghost writers.
    B) Thats the point. Nowdays not much peoples read this books and story of original books will be new for gamers. You dont have to create new stroys in universe you just take book material.
    C) In 60s it was mainstream and it will be mainstream after 100 yers.

  • This won't happen. A Three Stooges adventure game is more likely.
