Buffy the Vampire Slayer as a LucasArts point and click adventure game
This was a lot of fun to do. Particularly in thinking about which scenes to draw and also realising just how suitable the Buffy stories are to this type of game. There are so many objects and puzzles to solve. It made me think it would be a good writing exercise to take your story and see if it would fit into this type of game. If it can’t then I suspect it’s probably lacking a little narrative propulsion.
There are many, many other scenes I could have chosen (I’d still like to do 70s Spike on the subway car) but I thought one for each season was nice.
Some I chose because I wanted to show a specific location. Some I chose based on a gag that I thought would be funny e.g. Cordelia’s spatula and Willow’s broken crayon.
Here’s each episode I used as reference:
Season 1 - Welcome to Hellmouth
Season 2 - Inca Mummy Girl
Season 3 - Homecoming
Season 4 - Hush
Season 5 - Triangle
Season 6 - Grave
Season 7 - Touched
I’m going to be at the Bristol comic expo this weekend selling some prints.
