Fly a helicopter, swim the storm waters, and drive a massive ship!

Inspired by true events.

On January 19, 1995, Helicopter Flight 56 Charlie, nicknamed Cullen, disembarked from Aberdeen on its way to deliver a group of rig workers to their station aboard the oil platform at the Brae oilfield.

The routine trip, disrupted by a maelstrom of rain, hail, and lightning, did not go as planned.

Cullen is my attempt at a documentary game (docu-game or docugame). It makes use of dynamic camera angles, immersive vignettes,  and interstitial narration in order to tell a very simple story: the disaster and rescue of the Bristow Helicopters Flight 56C in January of 1995.

Cullen was initially made for a specific call for games, but I later realized I had broken many rules of the project for which it was designed. So, it exists now as its own thing.

(I'm currently having shader issues with my Mac build, so I'll add that after I solve the problem. Apologies.)
