Moe Bill Holmes: Redneck Detective

“Moe Bill Holmes: Redneck Detective” is a point-and-click game on which I have been working for a few years. The character started as a one-note sketch joke about a Southern secret agent who, although bumbling, could manage to craft makeshift gadgets out of redneck junk, like fishing rods, beer cans, trailer hitches, etc. He then evolved into an animated short idea and from there to a fully-formed video game concept. Based on a mish-mash of “Sherlock Holmes”, “James Bond”, film noir movies, “Andy Griffith”, “Hee Haw”, “Lil Abner” “Smokey and the Bandit”, “Dukes of Hazzard”, “Hong Kong Phooey”, “Inspector Gadget”, “The Tick”, “Full Throttle”, and “Grim Fandango” (among others), Moe Bill is the country cousin of the famous British sleuth of the same last name. He lives in rural Georgia with his dachshund Watson (who is generally the smarter of the two) and takes on the baffling cases and problems of his rustic neighbors…whether they want him to or not.

 

We managed to snag an award for Best Game Design Document at the TERMINUS Conference and Festival in Atlanta this year. See the acceptance video!

We also launched a wildly unsuccessful Kickstarter campaign but are currently busy revamping it for another try.
