Here's how you can help us get the Seinfeld point-and-click game we all deserve

"All this melds perfectly with the point-and-click formula!"

A couple of indie developers want your help to bring a new point-and-click adventure based in the Seinfield universe to fruition.

In a video called Seinfeld Game - The Unofficial Pitch, developers Jacob Janerka and Ivan Dixon "would like to pitch to you a game about nothing, set in the Seinfeld-verse". Whilst the pair have teased "snippets of the concept" to gaming fans before, this time it's a "full pitch rather than a few screenshots" (thanks, VG24/7).

In each act you will assume the role of Jerry, George or Elaine "as their stories interweave and overlap with one another, just like the show". It's expected that you will be allowed to play multiple characters besides Kramer, who appears throughout the story but will not be playable "as he works better narratively as a "wild card", someone who can influence the story but not be controlled".

"Point-and-click adventure games often involve some sort of task or mission that requires a mix of conversational skills, puzzle solving, item collection and use," the official website explains. "In Seinfeld, conflict also arises regularly from miscommunication or involves novel items (think episodes like The Pez, The Junior Mint, The Statue, The Calzone, The Fusilli Jerry, The Couch, The Big Salad etc). All this melds perfectly with the point-and-click formula!"

Here, take a peek yourself:

"Like the show's running length, we intend for the game to take roughly half an hour," the devs added. "This is ultimately scaleable and multiple half-hour episodes can be made or added later as DLC. Also like the show, the story would take place over three separate acts."

In a FAQ summary, the devs say they need "actual, real internet people to show that there is a demand for it" and be grateful if you could "share this far and wide if you would like this to happen". For more - or to find out how you can help - head to the official unofficial website.
