Bolt is struggling to survive and has to deal with a gang of Rude Boys. You go through a journey of self discovery, of love, friendship, and inspiration, where you are introduced to #Reggae music, you have to form your band, get inspiration, write and produce your songs and then perform them. The story consists of three parts each focusing on a different aspect of Bolt Riley’s passage into becoming a Reggae legend.
Themed around and about reggae music, they’re looking to make the money to, well, add the reggae music. And voice actors, and get the whole project completed. Clearly this is primarily the project of Adventure Mob, with the Coles focused on Hero-U, but the veteran pair designed Bolt Riley’s second chapter, and seem to be generally collaborating.
“Bolt Riley – Chapter 1” is complete game that’s part of a trilogy series. It has a self sustained story that should last a few hours of gameplay, all depends on whether you click every little thing on the screen or not, and how fast you solve the puzzles, and if you listen to every dialog line in the conversations… Getting a full indie game with hours of unique gameplay and dialog, for only $10, is not that bad.
There are to be three chapters to it, each stand-alone, and the first already in a playable alpha. The initial funding goal secures the release of chapter 1, but the front page gets a little ambiguous over what ensures we see chapters 2 and 3 – something they might want to be more clear about, since they’re hanging their Kickstarter on the Coles’ involvement. There’s more detail about that in a recent update:
