A downloadable game for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux


Jack is a videogame character... only he doesn't know it yet. Help Jack survive his voyage of self-discovery!

Mayhem in Single Valley is the story of Jack, a local troublemaker who makes series earth-shattering discoveries on the day he is supposed to leave home to for art college. Jack's adventure begins in a semi-realistic version of everyday life but unfolds into a humorous and philosophical examination of the interplay between The Player, Jack, and the game's creators.


I have spent the last year developing Mayhem In Single Valley and recently completed a fully playable demo that covers the first 5% of a 4 to 6 hr campaign. I am aiming for a cross between The Last Of Us and Undertale with a bit of Zelda thrown in for good measure. Please let me know what you think?


  • An in-depth story with weird and wonderful fleshed-out characters.
  • Dynamic context-based conversations and inner monologues.
  • Lots of level-up items, modes of transport, and mini games.
  • Combine different food types, antidotes, and poisons to escape and/or manipulate crazed wildlife and bosses.
  • Combine, use, equip, items. But beware! Searching through your knapsack leaves you vulnerable to attack.
  • Pull, push, drag, and generally fling items about your environment to solve puzzles and overcome obstacles.
  • Manage your medication or your world will become distorted and you will die!
  • Walkman based soundtrack. You decide what music you'd like to accompany your battles. Different tracks boost different players abilities.
  • Unique 2D lighting that transitions between morning, evening, and night, changing the look and feel of each environment.
  • Lots of Abrams-esque secret stuff I can't speak about right now : )
