Lost Lake Lights Shine on Kickstarter

If a “campy, twisted, dark comedy, sci-fi adventure” sounds good to you, then you may want to plan a virtual vacation to Lost Lake

Founded in 2012 by Chad Doriguzzi, Squirrel Dagger Games is a one-man indie development studio based in Portal, Oregon. Chad is currently working on Lost Lake Lights – a point-and-click “cinematic narrative” with gameplay that will be similar to Firewatch  and Life is Strange.

Squirrel Dagger Games launched its Kickstarter Campaign August 1st. It will run until September 30th and has a base goal of $30,000. The plan is to initially release the game for Windows on the PC and then consider ports to Mac, Linux, Nintendo Switch, PS4 and Xbox One “down the road.”

The story focuses on a couple that goes for a camping getaway at Lost Lake. After a series of mysterious events, the girlfriend goes missing. Your best guess is that an abduction has occurred and off you go, in search of answers. Squirrel Dagger promises a story with twists and turns that will keep you guessing. Rumor has it that your adventure will include a UFO sighting and that your own survival will hang in the balance.

Initial screenshots indicate that Lost Lake Lights will be a beautiful game world to explore and Squirrel Dagger teases that the interactive dialog system will include conversations “that only an indie game company would dare to use.” Hmm…

The environment will have clues and objects that can be picked up along the way to change situations and solve puzzles. All-in-all, it sounds like an adventure to look forward to! To follow the game’s progress, check the Lost Lake Lights website.

Cindy’s love affair with gaming began when she opened a mailbox in front of a white house and took the first step in a long series of adventures. ‘Back in the day,’ Cindy was a regular contributor to JA and an active member of the online gaming community. She has attended several E3s and has had the pleasure of spending time in person with both Ray and Randy. Her all- time favorite adventures include the Tex Murphy series, the Gabriel Knight series, and The Longest Journey. She also enjoys RPGs and her list of ‘best ever’ includes Fallout, Asheron’s Call, and Planescape Torment. Â Frustrated with the cost of rising PC system requirements, Cindy decided to switch to console and tablet gaming. Although you can teach some old dogs new tricks, she discovered that console controller dexterity is a skill set that she is lacking. Her results with tablet gaming were not much better. With the exception of a few gems such as The Room and Forever Lost, there is a limit to how much one can play Candy Crush and Hidden Object Adventures. Having proved that pure escapism is worth the investment, she has a new gaming laptop and is back to her search for the perfect adventure. Â After spending most of her life in Los Angeles and Atlanta, Cindy escaped the stress of urban life and moved to rural Arkansas. To show that she has become a true Arkansan, she has taken up deer hunting, wears pink camo, and put a chicken coop in her backyard. On a stressful day, she can be heard yelling ‘Woo Pig Sooie’ when all else fails.
