Regular readers may have noticed that I have rather an addiction to classic point-and-click style adventure games. Those same astute readers may also have noticed I have a wee bit of an obsession with Mass Effect. This fan project that puts the two together, making a Mass Effect point-and-click adventure game, is therefore completely irresistible.
Finding Shepard takes place after the conclusion of Mass Effect 3. [Spoilers] As the game's creator explains: it posits that Jack, in all her foul-mouthed, R-rated glory, has to find a way to the Citadel to discover what became of Commander Shepard after the "destroy" ending. She's on house arrest, after punching Admiral Hackett in the face (and really, who's surprised?), and must use good old-fashioned [noun] with [noun] to find her way around.
Scroll down for some slightly spoilery screenshots giving us a first glimpse at Jack's starring turn in her own adventure. Making the psychotic biotic the star of a problem-solving game, rather than a kill-all-the-things one, has a delightful irony to it that makes me even more excited to see how the project turns out.
