SimHamlet

SimHamlet explores the potential gameplay of retrieving information from a reluctant or non-cooperative character. The game begins in the aftermath of Shakespeare’s play. The player is cast as a government official with the mission of clarifying the recent events to write an official report. A gravedigger must be interrogated in order to establish the “how”, “when”, “where”, “why” and “by whom” of each murder. He apparently knows everything there is to know however the process is complicated by the NPC’s idiosyncratic perception of the events.

The LabLabLab Vol.1 compilation features the latest version of this game.
