"Too often, though, it’s other audience members who take it too far: a friend of mine reported an angry altercation at last year’s Proms, where he was loudly reprimanded by someone a few seats along for silently looking up something about the concert on his smartphone 20 minutes before the performance was due to start."

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.
