Conspirocracy is a Canadian point-and-click adventure game for the PC about a schoolteacher who wakes up to find that he no longer exists, at least not to the government, and all information about him is missing from public record. It was written as a charity fundraiser for the Foundation Fighting Blindness.
Ontario, Canada -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/23/2013 -- Conspirocracy starts in an exaggerated, highly bureaucratic re-imagining of Toronto, Canada. Medical droids serve as gatekeepers between patients and doctors. The activities of beggars and buskers are regulated and tasked. Airport security is taken to a more extreme, disconcerting level. Players will have their work cut out for them exploring, solving puzzles and piecing together clues when the system is stacked heavily against the protagonist.
An interesting take on traditional point-and-click adventure games is the stress bar. As the player, you will need to find ways to manage your stress, which will go up with every little thing that blocks your path to solving the mystery of what became of your identity.
This game, developed by an international team of volunteers and amateur developers, is already in beta testing. A launch date is anticipated for mid-November. Half of the proceeds raised through the Indiegogo campaign will be donated to the Foundation Fighting Blindness.
For almost 40 years, the Foundation Fighting Blindness has funded dozens of research discoveries to identify the causes of genetic forms of blindness. These discoveries have helped bring scientists to this very exciting time in vision research. Today marks the first time that a treatment exists to prevent vision loss and restore some vision for those with an eye disease called 'wet' age-related macular degeneration (AMD) - and the first time human trials exist to reverse blindness in certain patients with retinitis pigmentosa (RP).
The campaign will receive all funds raised even if it does not reach its goal. The campaign will run until September 27, 2013.
