We’ve put online a mini site dedicated to MadMen games – if you find more, tell us and we’ll add them to the list!
A few days in advance of the planned publishing date (1st of September), Adslife final is online. You can now play the first part of the game for free.
Here is the just released trailer video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gph_Ha–IlY&hd=1
Approaching Adslife final, we’ve added several short stories in the game flow, improved internal navigation in several ways – also introducing a map that shows you where you are.
Being Adslife a browser game played in turns with pauses in between, it may take some time to complete a review. Here are some themes / ideas / features one may consider:
- The story evolves in time: just foolin’ around the office and the club for the first game day will not give you a complete picture of the possibilities.
Just seen this cute Facebook app where you seem to be able to do something like creating an ad but you can’t actually do a thing but upload a photo in a fixed color contest.
We posted a video of gameplay from our internal alpha:
The gameplay is from the first day of “work”, and with a male main character.

From this L.A. Noire review:
[L.A. Noire] owes more to Fahrenheit/Indigo Prophecy, Heavy Rain, the old-school graphic adventure and the fiction of James Ellroy and Raymond Chandler, not to mention Polanski’s Chinatown, than it does GTA4 and Red Dead Redemption. Sure […] At heart, however, L.A. Noire is a fairly linear, dialogue-driven adventure game with the focus firmly on investigating crime scenes, discovering clues and interrogating suspects.
If you are liking the narrative quality and atmosphere of the design of L.A. Noire, you may enjoy Adslife – even though it is a browser game, produced by a new, small, indie game dev shop.
Goes live September 1st here.
Adslife will be online on September 1st at http://adslifegame.com.
