Mike's Place! is a unique 2D interactive point and click horror game where you explore a haunted social media page from the 90s of a deceased stranger named Mike. On the surface, this light-hearted profile shows Mike's interests and family life through pictures that you can interact with. As you dig deeper into the web page, you will start to see Mike's profile slowly corrupting that will reveal the ghost that is starting to take over your computer! This game is currently in its prototype stage.
For this project, I worked in a team as the lead artist, and photo editor. I also helped with the level design along with sound design. We wanted to make sure the aesthetics of this game were spot on with the 90s internet era so I captured photos from my family's old home videos that were recorded on VHS tapes. We made sure to keep the themes, sound, and graphics to a quality that was only achievable in the 90s. I edited the family pictures in photoshop by adding the ghosts, intentionally corrupting the images, and creating the animations.
