... and in obvious and redundant news, this project has been cancelled. I've decided to leave the '80s to bret easton ellis. Recently, I've enjoyed '80s music and movies but I'll restrain myself from allowing my clue game to too closely follow my undulations next time. It was a dull project anyway.

I've since turned my focus on another project similar to this one.

Fear not. I have been engaging myself in a project, but I do not think that I will post anything until it is completed. I am collaborating with a friend of mine to make a game similar to the one I was attempting to make earlier.

The game has a 12:12:20 ratio of suspects, weapons, and possible crime scenes (14 are mansion rooms, 6 are ground locations). The four doorstoppers (as I call them) - the Butler, Cook, Chauffeur, and Dog - will be included. As for movement, it will likely go room-to-room with no spaces or dice rolling. We're currently debating on having a set victim or having a separate victim deck (Mr. Boddy, Mr. Meadow-Brook, etc.), but not like the one I used in Clue Blueprints.

I was messing around in PowerPoint earlier, and I came out with that. It's actually quite pointless, but it gives a look on how a game would probably be at some point.

Who are the two green characters? I think it's wise not to have colours so closely matching.

No, I think Mrs. Meadow-Brook is the teal character.

It looks to me like we've got Brunette, Mustard, Plum, Boddy, Scarlet, both Meadow-Brooks, Peacock, Green, White, Rusty, and Peach.

I don't think both Meadow-Brooks are being used. I don't see two Meadow-Brook coloured pawns. Maybe the extra green pawn is that Miss Kelly character that munitzer created.

The suspects are (starting from the upper left): Mr. Cordovan, Colonel Mustard, Professor Plum, Dr. Black, Miss Scarlet, Mrs. Meadow-Brook, Mrs. Peacock, Miss Kelly, Mr. Green, Mrs. White, Rusty, and Miss Peach.

Since it's not a commercial game, the fact that I have two green characters does not trouble me. They're two separate suspects and two distinctly different colors. Now, if I had Rusty and Miss O'Range or Mrs. White and Mrs. Alabaster, there'd be some overlapping there. I purposely made it so that each of the original 6 would have a similar color in the new 6.

There will only be one victim - Mr. Boddy.

Had a lot of time on my hands today and finally got my movie making program to work, and this was the result. Flawed and unfinished, but you get the idea.

Very interesting! Plus an ingenious way of using that Batman Begins clip.

It very good. I love the Accusations and Alibis music. It fits so perfectly.

Thank you all very much. I really wanted to use the Accusations and Alibis music because I really liked it. I'm planning on doing one that combines audio clips of all the suspects and throw in some weapons and rooms. This was just me testing the waters.

And just to give the cast, in order of appearance:
Mr. Boddy - Christian Bale
Miss Scarlet - Jessica Alba
Colonel Mustard - Harrison Ford
Mrs. White - Angela Lansbury
Mr. Green - Michael Douglas
Mrs. Peacock - Ann-Margret
Professor Plum - Jeremy Irons
Mrs. Meadow-Brook - Meryl Streep
Rusty - Jim Sturgess
Miss Peach - Reese Witherspoon
Dr. Black - Kevin Spacey
Miss Kelly - Willa Holland
Mr. Cordovan - Jeremy Piven
