Emerald Engine of Oz - Game Designs

posted Aug 14, 2009, 7:54 PM by Tarl Telford
I have started working on some game designs for a series of games based on the world created by L. Frank Baum in his "Famous Fourteen" Oz books.  These games and original stories are not necessarily canonical with the Oz books, but rather a fanciful interpretation of the world.
The Emerald Engine of Oz is the device that powers the magic in Oz.  It is also the over-arching title for the saga of stories and games.

The first game my team is working on is called, "TikTok Walkabout."  It follows a clockwork man, TikTok, as he journeys throughout Oz and the surrounding lands searching for pieces to assemble a clockwork girl - Widget.  Along the way he battles Wheelers, Nomes and fierce monsters.
