Famous Five Game

The book that this game will be focussed upon will be "Five get into trouble" the 8th book in Enid Blyton's Famous Five series.

The story is arguably one of the best stories in the series with an excellent array of locations with which to stage virtually, from the lush country lanes bordered by flowers and wildlife, a refreshing lake, mysterious moonlit woods, a farmhouse manned by a thoroughly unpleasant man and of course the mansion known as Owl's Dene where the majority of the action takes place.

The villains in the story are also numerous and varied, from the smooth talking Mr Perton, to the course and brutish Rocky. There are also other characters that help to bring the story to life. The hunchback that takes every opportunity to shout at scowl at the children. Aggie, the aging housemaid that ensures the children are well fed whilst they are at the mansion, and the coward come hero Richard.

Lastly there are a variety of objects described throughout the story that are a little out of the ordinary and would make for some excellent puzzles in the game. Objects like the strange mechanical gates that can only be operated from the room in the mansion, and of course the secret room behind the bookcase.
