Happy 2017!

Hi everybody, HAPPY 2017!
We hope you all had fun during New Year’s Eve.
Due to some reasons beyond our control, we will be releasing only one game this month, but we promise to make up for it next month. Here are some of the games we are working on:
Adventures in Babysitting – A funny little game in which you’ll be playing Anthony.
Anthony is asked to keep an eye on his younger brother Dane-Insane, while their father, Prof. Smith, is leaving to buy something. Prof. Smith is an explorer, thus he has weird stuff around the house. Dane-Insane is sure to cause troubles and it will be up to Anthony to save the day.

A Trip to Potato Island – This time Anthony (yes, the same Anthony from previous game) is on a trip to Potato Island.
His grandfather told him it’s a magical place with talking potatoes, but Shawnacy, the tour guide, says it’s just old wives tales. Will Anthony prove him wrong?!

The Gifted Weasel – A game which will be similar to The Magical Forest. In this game you’ll be playing a weasel, who’s wife was kidnapped by an evil witch.
Teacher From Hell – A 2 parts game in which you’ll be playing a student that must avoid a history test, but it’s not that easy when your teacher has eyes in the back of her headย ๐Ÿ™‚

We also have VP8 which we are still currently working on (about 65% of the game’s graphics is ready), so there’s a lot to expect.

We wish you and your families a happy new year, filled with happiness and joy!
See you next time ๐Ÿ™‚

    You might think about naming the first game you mentioned something like “Adventures in Brother-sitting, or Sibling-sitting.” Otherwise you might be stepping on somebody’s copyright. Disney just did an “Adventures in Babysitting” movie a year or so ago. God help you all if you mess with the Mouse Lord.

    • Creed Sworld

      they RE-MADE the 1987 film of the same name.

      • John Jones

        They’re Disney. They can do that. And they likely bought the rights and went through all the legal niceties. I doubt seriously that Carmel bought the rights to “Adventures in Babysitting” just to make a free game. My thing is don’t borrow trouble.

        • Creed Sworld

          This according to Google: Copyright protection does not extend to titles, names, slogans or short phrases, the Copyright Office has made that much very clear. You can not copyright your name, the title of your post or any short phrase that you use to identify a work.Jan 8, 2010…. I trust GOOGLE for info like this.

          • John Jones

            I’d still go with don’t borrow trouble. USA law is a near bloodsport. Even if a person sued is completed in the right they can be bankrupted by lawsuits from people with deeper pockets because they still have to go to court to defend themselves.

          • Creed Sworld

            Yeah, but since Carmel hasn’t violated any copyright laws they don’t have a thing to worry about. I did some further searching and found out that ANYONE can name anything they want, well… anything they want. Can Disney sue everyone with the name Bambi? Nope, they cant . They cant sue if a Internet Game Company uses “Adventures in Babysitting”. Bottom line is: You simply cant copyright common everyday words or phrases.

          • John Jones

            You are probably right. Carmel probably does not have a thing to worry. Disney probably doesn’t know or care that Carmel exists. They probably don’t know or care that “Adventures in Babysitting” will be the name of the new game. Probably.
            Probably is as positive as I’ll get in endorsing your viewpoint. You are probably right in what you are saying. But never say “Never” or “always” because stuff happens. The universe is unpredictable. And sometimes petty. And vindictive. Especially when humans are involved.

    • We want to thank both John Jones and Creed Sworld for the interesting conversation that took place here in the comments section.
      After reading it all we’ve decided to change the name for the game’s release, we don’t want any unnecessary problems which can be easily avoided, however unlikely they are.

  • Dora

    So exciting! I was wondering if you’re also gonna make any more Who Lives Here games or brain teasers? They’re fun to do while anticipating your escape games!

  • Candice
