Pause Reality. Play the Game.

Kelp Interactive, Yes I agree it’s a strange name, but it has an interesting backstory. A long, long time ago when toilet paper was our main currency, we embarked on our university unity project, in which we made a first-person detective game. It was a bad and buggy mess of a game, but we knew it had the potential to be a fun game that all the mystery solvers out there would enjoy and decided to continue developing it in our fourth year.

While making the pre-alpha version of our game, we wanted to include some movie posters to put on the walls and to avoid copyright issues we had the great idea of ‘Kelp Fiction’. Because we’re so quirky we thought it would make for a great game studio name.

We are currently working non-stop 200-hour weeks to give you the game that you want to play. Our goal at Kelp Interactive is to deliver a murder mystery game that has easy controls for any new player, engaging puzzles, a compelling story all while keeping you laughing the whole way through.

Harrison Fornasier

I’m a student in my fourth year at the University of York. I have a knack for coming up with funny storylines and thought-provoking puzzles.

I’ve always loved playing games ever since I was a little lad so I have a lot of knowledge when it comes to game design and also what makes a game boring.

I’m going to be doing the 3D modeling as well as the coding in Comical Cases.
