Mayhem In Single Valley
Jack is a videogame character... only he doesn’t know it yet. Help Jack survive his voyage of self-discovery!
Mayhem in Single Valley is the story of Jack, a local troublemaker who makes series earth-shattering discoveries on the day he is supposed to leave home to for art college. Jack's adventure begins in a semi-realistic version of everyday life but unfolds into a humorous and philosophical examination of the interplay between The Player, Jack, and the game's creators.
- An in-depth story with weird and wonderful fleshed-out characters.
- Dynamic context-based conversations and inner monologues.
- Lots of level-up items, modes of transport, and mini games.
- Combine different food types, antidotes, and poisons to escape and/or manipulate crazed wildlife and bosses.
- Combine, use, equip, items. But beware! Searching through your knapsack leaves you vulnerable to attack.
- Pull, push, drag, and generally fling items about your environment to solve puzzles and overcome obstacles.
- Manage your medication or your world will become distorted and you will die!
- Walkman based soundtrack. You decide what music you'd like to accompany your battles. Different tracks boost different players abilities.
- Unique 2D lighting that transitions between morning, evening, and night, changing the look and feel of each environment.
- Lots of Abrams-esque secret stuff I can't speak about right now : )

With Tale of Tales retreating from the indie games scene, Steam offering refunds on games with under two hours of clocked playtime, and Desura’s parent company going bankrupt, it’s been an unnerving month for indie games creation.BackstoryBefore I discuss where I’m at today, I’d like to talk about You Are Not A Banana and how Fluxscopic Ltd. came into being.
