The Mystery of Woolley Mountain features characters collectively known as the Helmholtz Resonators. Already existing in other media, there are five altogether:

~Garland Vanderbilt – a stickler for tidiness, whose motto is, “PUT THAT BACK WHERE IT BELONGS!”

~VenDamm Laudenleer – plays lots of musical instruments and understands any scientific device

~Carlton Breezy – prefers to do anything except tangible work; shares mutual interest in darts, movies and arcade machines with Auto, the group’s robot

~Chladni Plates – plays Low Frequency Guitar; thinks he’s a lothario

~Frithel Stock-Stone – Obsessed with science; plays drums; loves the Bee Gees

Collectively described as time-traveling renegade audio scientists, they must traverse a fantastical, sprawling universe to rescue kidnapped children from an evil witch. An awesome soundtrack will accompany them.

Woolley Mountain features unique 2D cartoon graphics. You’ll be playing different characters throughout the game and will be able to interact with almost everything. There will be no swearing (although “darn” might appear).

If you loved The Secret Of Monkey Island, Day of the Tentacle, DiscWorld, Space Quest, Trap Door, Phantom Tollbooth and Chorlton and the Wheelies, then The Mystery of Woolley Mountain is for you.

A Kickstarter campaign  with a base goal of £8,000 has been launched and will run until August 19, 2016. Please consider backing the game. A Greenlight campaign is also in progress, just waiting for your vote.

If all goes well, The Mystery of Wolley Mountain will be launched in Beta in mid-2017, with a final release for PC and Mac in October 2017.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal. "I put my heart and soul into my work, and have lost my mind in the process." - Vincent Van Gogh "I need solitude for my writing; not like a hermit - that wouldn't be enough - but like a dead man." - Franz Kafka "I've been to hell and back, my boy." - Susan Ashworth, The Cat Lady
