Looking for flash game...
« on: August 15, 2009, 11:35 AM »
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?!?

The search is over! The game is Banja - I posted a similar message on AskMeFi and ClarissaWAM came up trumps.

Thanks to the 70 people who looked at this thread to try and help :)
