Lilly Looking Through on Steam Greenlight

Videogames

Last year I wrote about a Kickstarter campaign for a kid-friendly point-and-click videogame called Lilly Looking Through. It features a little girl and a pair of interesting goggles she finds. Geeta Games is a husband-and-wife team, Steve and Jessica Hoogendyk, and the pair have had experience in both film and game design.

They just released this official trailer this week, and also announced that they’ve launched a Greenlight campaign to get Lilly Looking Through on Steam. The game’s not quite ready (like most Kickstarter videogames, it’s a bit behind schedule) but they’re getting pretty close, according to their latest updates.

Have a look at the trailer, download the demo (for Mac, PC, or Linux), and go cast your vote if you like it!

  1. I couldn’t help immediately thinking of this song when I saw the title: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4NcmcJT3Ddg – Pink Martini, Lilly

    Seriously, though, the trailer looks beautiful and the Kickstarter looks hopeful, but I’m missing the most basic of details. What kind of game will it be? Point-and-click? Physics-based, as some of the trailer looked? And as per your previous post regarding Kickstarter rewards, why are they spending money on (awesome) goggles?

    1. Hi, Melissa—sorry, maybe my post wasn’t entirely clear, but the Kickstarter campaign was from last year and was already successfully funded. It’s a puzzle-based point-and-click adventure, and it’s designed to be kid-friendly.

      As far as the goggles go, are you referring to Chuck Lawton’s post about Kickstarter Is Broken? I think some physical trinkets (particularly in the case of a videogame) are to be expected, as long as their costs are taken into account and the creation of them doesn’t take time away from the ultimate goal of the campaign. That said, I didn’t back for the goggles level. I’m just interested in the game itself.
