About Us: Shenanigames is a place holder Company I have set-up to represent a team for the Supernatural game we are developing.
About the Project: Supernatural is a game based off but not limited to the Tv show Supernatural which is aired on the American Network CW. The Game has its own story line and Characters that permeate the Supernatural Universe. You will play as a hunter who must investigate paranormal occurrences/deaths in an area, determine the type of threat and resolve it with the appropriate weapons. Enemy’s will range from Spirits to demons and monsters etc..
Current Project Progress: The team currently consists of four members including myself.
Programmer = Cathal(me)
Composer = Mitch
Writer = James
3d Modeller = Alex
We have been working on the project for approximately 3 months now. The first 2 months we spent on creating relevant documentation (High Concept/Technical Design Document). We have decided to create a Tech demo of the Game first to gauge how successful a full version of the game will be. In the last month or so actual development has started on the game.
Progress includes a completely new Menu system and HUD,
3D Models and Artwork,
30% of the Tech Demo Level has been created.
Environment Modeler / Mapper
Our website has just gone live.

Out of interest why are you basing this game specifically in this universe? Are you hoping to do a good tech demo and possibly get the WB to pick up full production? But be prepared that the WB have many large studios now which could crack out a Supernatural game if the market demands such a title. If you are not going this direction seems like you could loosely base your game on the themes of the show and make your own original production for steam or the likes.

Thats pretty much it in a nut shell Pete.
If they come at me witha c ease and desist we can make very slight changes and its a game based on the theses and mechanics seen on the show. As it is we have our own characters and story line so its really a name change and a few smaller things. Has to be Free to play anyway since we are using CryEngines free SDK so until their Indie license comes out its going to be free.
I have talked at length about this with the team and a few industry established friends and the general consensus is to go for it until we are stopped and then just change it to suit. Either way it will work, Its just nice to sit in beside a fanbase for a show that is decently large.
