What a unique, interesting and lovely looking game! I don't think I've ever encountered a character in a game like this before.

Looking forward to it very much!

You three seem to be a cool team!

It will be my first time to play a pregnant and for the most if not all of the males I assume  ::)

           

Looking forward to this experience and to the reports of all the male players afterwards  :D
(... good to know, there is a female in the team ;) )

Wow, I don't think I have seen a pregnant protagonist in an AGS game before.  What a lovely idea.  The backgrounds and characters look great, well done everyone!

The life of a pregnant woman in jail as a theme in a videogame.
I don't see how this could go wrong. ONWARDS, TO HILARITY!

@ThreeOhFour: Thanks Ben, that means a lot. I hope I can live up to the expectations.

@Tabata: Thank you. I am always striving to have a female on the team to get some female perspective
(and always the same female).  ;D

@Tier: Thanks, indeed there is some beautiful artwork in there...

@WHAM: Thanks, but I must have done something wrong if you're expecting hilarity from this game!  :o
This is going to be a dark, dark game.

I guess my sarcasm didn't show too well. I was merely implying that in a modern day gaming climate, a game about a pregnant woman in jail has an incredible tendency to go wrong in oh so many ways. No worries, though, I don't think an AGS game of this sort has much tendency to fall towards mindless fetal violence and placenta jokes... I hope...  ;D

This is probably the most original and twisted idea of the whole set. Really looking forward to it!

I never knew I desperately wanted to play an adventure game as a pregnant inmate, but it turns out that I do. Looking nice, tzachs!

@Grundislav: Thanks, those kind of comments make me very happy indeed, especially when the come from BEN F**KIN' JORDAN!

@Snarky: Well, thank you, mr solicitor, but please, less talk and more work! I desperately need to play your piece of perfectness!

@qptain Nemo: Thanks, I actually cry myself to sleep every night with that very thought!
I feel like I can do comedy ok, but making something like this work is a real challenge...

So THIS is what you were working on behind the scenes. Looks very dark and unsettling, man. I'm intrigued to see where you go with this.

tzachs and noa: I really loved your office shenanigans and I'm glad you're again working on a game. Character art looks nice, so good job on that noa. And tzachs as well. Also thumbs up to gameboy, that is doing some great job there.

Count me as hooked :D

This sounds really dark. Also - quite original, well thought out and intriguing.
And the graphics look absolutely great - bleak, atmospheric, stylish and functional. Interesting!

@Ponch: Thank you! That was what I (arrrm, or gameboy) was aiming for!

@Baron: Indeed, I took the assignment literally...  ;)

@Dualnames: YES! Dualnames is hooked, BOOM BABY! Thank you!

@Grim: Oh, stop, you're making me blush (oh wait, there's no blush emoticon in here, so let's just go with some man-lovin')  :-*

@Ilyich: Thank you! Let us hope you still think the same after you play the game...

Sounds like an adventure game thriller at its best. The screenys also look very promising.

If the writing is as strong as it was in your certain previous game, this can only end awesome :D

@abstauber Thanks for your support!  :D

Also, I've written in my blog about the progress of the game, if you're interested read it here.

If you're too lazy to click (yes, I'm looking at you), the short story is things are mostly progressing in a fine pace, and I'm on the lookout for voice actors (5 female parts and 2 male parts are currently open) and testers. If you're interested drop me a PM.
