The Nasty Consultant – The Video Game

I’m so excited to introduce you to The Video Game version of the Nasty Consultant. I started thinking about the topic last year and wrote a written version of it. It turned out to be my most visited blog post.
Thousands of you wanted to solve Nasty Consulting Cases!

This year, I decided to turn it into a real video game! You can download it here (available for Mac, Windows and Linux still working on an android and IOS version.)
This is only a first draft version. I’m trying to see if there is an interest and if the gameplay is entertaining enough.
I have tons of ideas for other chapters and also to make the story longer. I’m currently looking for good feedback and testers!
Let me guys know what you think…


You are a recent business school graduate and you got hired by an obscure firm called “Dark Island Consulting”.
Turns out, this company only works with criminals to help them improve their business.
Your first adventure is to help a Bloodthirsty Mexican Drug Lord called Mr. Ruiz to improve his profitability.
You will travel the world to understand Mr Ruiz’s business and you will have to avoid temptations and traps on the way.
Are you ready to join the dark side of the business?
Game On!


As a consultant, you’ll need to travel the world
Visit production facilities in Colombia
Hack into the UN to steal some information
A life of crime can be dangerous
Be very careful


It took me around a month of spare time to develop the first draft of the game. I used Ren’py engine to create the novel. Ren’py has its own coding language and also uses Python. I used a few different websites to create pixel art (PixelStitch and pixelfonts). All sound effects and pictures are either free or under creative commons. I also used Canva to create some designs.
