Independent game studio Hilltop Studios, in collaboration with Versus Evil, have released part one of a new dev diary series titled ‘LOL Guardsman’ which focuses on the humour of its upcoming narrative-driven deduction adventure game Lil’ Guardsman, ahead of its launch in early 2024 on Switch.

The ‘LOL Guardsman’ two-part series takes a deep dive into the role of comedy in this point-and-click adventure. In Part 1, watch as Scott Christian, Founder and Narrative Director, Matt Bernard, Writer and Game Designer and Jeremy Lapalme, Writer, discuss the writers’ tactics for infusing the game’s narrative with comedy, and tackling funny dialogue for a medium not typically associated with comic relief.

Lil’ Guardsman is a narrative deduction game, inspired by the classic point-and-click genre and the mechanics of Papers, Please. Set in a high-fantasy world with the comedic sensibility of Monkey Island and other 90s Lucasarts adventure classics, Lil must make tough decisions as she decides who to allow into her castle home. Consequences can be severe, so you’ll have to make clever use of your abilities to uncover mass conspiracies and protect your castle and family from devious interlopers.
