Jessica Plunkenstein and the Düsseldorf Conspiracy


Fun Facts

Fun, it turns out, is a relative term.

  • Jessica Plunkenstein and the Düsseldorf Conspiracy began as a senior project in Computer Science at Yale University. In order to sneak past the approval committee, the official name was "Rendering Dynamic Graphics in an Ad Hoc Environment."
  • The game's characters and story were drafted over the course of a plane ride between New York and California. The same flight also saw the completion of a senior project in Theatre Studies.
  • In the original design, the game had five playable parts, including sojourns to outer space and the platypus-infested Castle von Düsseldorf. These were cut when the author realized the general public might not share his obsession with duckbilled platypuses. That, and time ran out.
  • All the voices for Jessica Plunkenstein and the Düsseldorf Conspiracy were recorded in Studio JE 755, which was definitely, definitely not a dorm room. Definitely.
  • If you listen carefully, the voices of the Maitre D and the Zookeeper change between the Lower and Upper Amazon. That's because the Upper Amazon lines were recorded after the original actors left for summer vacation, so the actors portraying the Llamaland Greeter and Olmec/Frenchman/Stauf filled in for them.
  • Despite our best efforts, no llamas were hurt in the making of the game.
