Lil' Guardsman is a narrative puzzle game, inspired by the classic point-and-click genre and the mechanics of Papers, Please. Set in a high-fantasy world with the comedic sensibility of Monkey Island and other 90s Lucasarts adventure classics, Lil regularly finds herself covering for her dad, the head castle guardsman. She interrogates a cavalcade of fun and weird characters trying to gain entry to The Sprawl.
You decide their fate... and the fate of the entire kingdom.
Lil’ Guardsman is being designed on PC/Mac, but with touchscreen (iOS) and controller (consoles – Nintendo Switch, XBOX, PlayStation) input in mind. Using narrative and logic puzzles, gameplay relies on how well the player manages information and clues that are doled out within an individual turn, round, or across the entire story.
