Saturday Edition

Entrant 2024

Chris Makris with sound design by Gordon McGladdery and Alfonso Salinas


"Saturday Edition tells the story of John Kornfield, a security technician who made headlines in 1976 with his account of alien abduction, life on another world, and eventual return to earth. Ten years later, Kornfield once again finds himself the subject of public interest when a string of disappearances coincide with sightings of mysterious lights in the night sky."

Saturday Edition is a graphic adventure game rooted in the classic point and click style. Except there is no pointing or clicking, because the game isn't controlled with a mouse. The game's design differs from the classic graphic adventure in a few ways, most of which are intended to facilitate narrative (over puzzle solving).
