About 7 or 8 years ago I remember playing a flash game, developed by a French team, that I would love to rediscover if it still exists...
Here is what I recall:
- The name may have started with a B, and it had a Y (or "ai" sound) in it.
- It was available in various European languages
- The game was set on an island, and was divided into episodes.
- Each episode was online for a couple of weeks, and once the story was complete, it looped back to episode 1.
- There island had many locations, most of which had a game or activity attached to them.
- Although it was a single player experience, some activities had a leader board, or required a certain total number of points to be scored by all players, before progress could be made.
- In the cinema you could watch short animations, also by the same Flash team.
- On the beach you could enter a kite flying contest.
- The was a market, and someone shouting "Fish! Come and buy my fish!"
- You started in you own house, where you had a record player - and could collect records and play them here.
- There was a cooking game in the kitchen - combining ingredients.
- You could fish off the pier.
- There was a tiny elephant?!?! A pig who was the butcher and loads of seagulls everywhere.
- There was an old fisherman and a mysterious mayor who might have been called Patchouli
The same team started work on another game - something to do with totem poles or Aztecs or Tiki heads.
They also had a longer animation where a guy with a skull for a head and another with his hair permanently on fire shared an apartment, which was stormed by special forces!
Does anyone have a clue what I'm on about?!?
