But making a game based off Raffles Hotel is too easy. I think making a game that tells a story of a place that used to be one of the best but is no longer around is much better. There were 2 other hotels besides Raffles Hotel in Singapore. I chose the Adelphi Hotel.
Here are some photographs from the National Archive of Singapore of the Adelphi Hotel:
Beautiful old world Victorian style architecture. Much like Raffles Hotel.
Sadly, the building that replaces it looks like this:
Utterly uninspiring. Disappointing.
Wouldn't it be awesome, if you could travel back in time and get a feel of how it is like to be part of the crew that manages the hotel? There's just something magical and fantastical about playing a game that is based of something from past history that no longer exist.
I wonder how long I will take to create such a game.
