Early game information:
Agent A is a spy themed puzzle game where you play as secret Agent A. Your mission is to catch a deadly enemy spy named Ruby La Rouge who has been targeting fellow agents.
The game begins outside of Ruby’s secret hideaway. You need to work out how to get inside the lair and catch her.
You play through the eyes of Agent A with interaction reminiscent to ‘The Room’ but with more of an emphasis on logical inventory based puzzles. Collecting items and working out how to use them throughout the house is the core functionality of the game. We have really placed an emphasis on making clever puzzles that are logic based. Puzzles that reward the player for being observant and taking mental notes (like a good agent would) as opposed to those kind of adventure/puzzle games where you feel like you’re just trying out random items until they work.
There are 15 rooms to explore, 30 inventory based puzzles and 20 puzzle screens like below:
The game is built in 3D however we designed the art in a 2D illustrative style based on a 1960s retro feel to add some charm to the visuals. As you traverse through the space, panels and objects all open or reveal in a 3D way while still looking quite stylised.
