A tie, eh? Congratulations to the two champignons!!! Well deserved!

(And I tied with The Burgomaster! That's quite an honour!)

Er.. Ash vs Evil Dead??

Doesn't look like enough blood for that. Could be the beginning of a huge torrent though...

I'm gonna try:

Twin Peaks (new series)?

I'm thinking the scene where:

Most entertaining coloring ball EVA!!!

Best of luck with the project!

I just thought I'd add though that $20 seems quite expensive for a point-and-click adventure game on steam. A $20 price implies an extremely polished and professional product with about 10+ hours of gameplay.

That's the kind of price an established studio might get away with and they'd still get bashed by players and critics if the game didn't live up to the price.

The last thing you want is reviews saying the game doesn't have the content to justify the price. What you do want is reviews saying that the game is very reasonably priced considering the quality of its content.

Another large factor these days for pricing is voice acting. If your game doesn't have professional quality voice acting that is going to cut the price pretty much in half. Very few modern gamers are going to pay over $10 for a game they have to read.

I'm kind of assuming that if you have been working on the project for about a year on your own then it's a medium-length game, maybe around 5 hours long, and no voice acting.

I would say a reasonable price, if this is correct, is around $5 to $8 depending on other quality factors.

This might seem low for the amount of work you have put in but consider that it's better to have, say, 1000 people buy the game at $5, and leave good reviews, than have 100 people buy the game at $20, and leave bad reviews.

I have worked on a few commercial games but am in no way an expert on the market. These are just my estimates based what I have seen.

For expert advice in this matter maybe drop a line to Mark at Screen7 publishing or even Dave Gilbert at WadgetEye. Both are very approachable people with years of experience and would probably be willing to share some of it.

Best of luck, mate!

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

It would be truly amazing if such a specific guess turned out to be wrong (laugh)

Very early testing screenshot, but it does show just a little bit what it might be like for Bill Fisher to arrive in the merry old port of London CIRCA 1920....

Dammit, it sits there for three days unguessed while I'm away, then selmiak guesses it (I'm pretty sure) twenty minutes before I see it!

natural born killers?


(The first picture of the shaman demon only appears in one single frame of the film during the mushroom tripping sequence... It was really hard to freeze-frame and screen-capture it... :=... It would have been the ultimate win if someone could have got it from that. The second picture is from the AMERICAN MANIACS reality show. The third picture speaks for itself: Rattlesnake bites!!!)

No, I don't think Brett's beard was ever that big. ;)

Hahaha! True, but I'd heard rumours of a new season and thought this might be it.

I would go mental if I worked in “Bicu bicu bicu Bic Camera”

Hahahaha! Yeah, and how about the electronic chimes noise whenever someone enters or leaves a convenience store? At rush hour, like 8AM-9AM that thing just keeps going and going as if some AGS game dev set the audio to play on repeat by mistake.

Even as a customer in there for 5 minutes max I feel like finding the speaker and ripping it out of the wall!!!

I guess maybe it's like a bad smell. If you're constantly in it you just stop noticing?

Another thing about those in-store jingles: Why do they even have them?! Why are they using their advertising jingle in their store that I'm already in?!

Also, it cracks me up when I go to the supermarket and they are playing the Indiana Jones theme at high volume as their Musak!

I made up some lyrics that I sing along to it, much to my wife's shame:

I much prefer a human cashier to serve me... and I don’t even like people.

Also you live in a country where cashiers almost never deviate from the script.

Every morning here in Japan I see cars racing through the red light at the same intersection so long after the lights have changed that they are dodging pedestrians already walking out onto the crossing. One time I even pulled back a schoolboy by the shoulder who they wouldn't have seen over their bonnet in time.

I have spoken to police I see on the street to report this intersection and advise that they put a patrolman there from 8AM every morning until 10AM. But this never happens.

Meanwhile my wife and I get stopped and handed a warning ticket for riding our bicycles side-by-side on a country road with absolutely no traffic as far as the eye can see.

Gives me such a warm fuzzy feeling every time I pay my city taxes.

No. And Curb is HBO, The League is FX or FXX.

I live in Japan and only have crappy basic cable. I don't know what actual channel anything is originally on until I see an episode and it has the logo at the start.
