It's a couple of months yet to go, but I thought I'd get the whole "showing" people thing out of the way to build up excitement. After all, this is the Excitement Games Studio forums, aren't they? Aren't they? They aren't? Damn. Well, in that case, coming soon to a computer in front of you:

Nancy the Happy Whore and the Perfidious Petrol Station

Nancy, the titular sex-worker with an unshakeably optimistic attitude, finds herself running out of fuel while on her way to the Big City. Now, with the help of her best friend and crack-fiend Susie the Drug Addict, she must not only procure the petroleum to make her auto-machine go again, but help defeat an armed robbery, a disillusioned amateur hippy and THE PROPHETS themselves to help uncover the evil lurking within - the PERFIDIOUS PETROL STATION!





(Graphics sort-of representative, and subject to a whole lot of improvement and cleaning-up before it's finished)

Featuring:
- An intricate and disturbing social commentary on the issues of modern womanhood
- Non-linear art
- Eight rooms!
- Voices! (which reminds me, who wants to voice a character?)
- Graphics!
- Six languages (including ENGLISH (UK), ENGLISH (USA), ENGLISH (CANADA), ENGLISH (NEW ZEALAND), ENGLISH (ZIMBABWE) and ENGLISH (FEDERATED STATES OF MICRONESIA))

Release date: THIS SUMMER

Since this is intended to be part of Mods' Summerbatch group of games, it'll also be my first venture into charging people money for what I make. COMMERCIAL! WOO!

Edit: FINISHED! PAY MONEY TO PLAY WITH NANCY, THAT'S WHAT SHE'S THERE FOR![/url]

Got the love the character graphics style.

er....

- Does this mean the UK version will spell words like colour correctly?
- I notice once again the Aussies are missing out, although they'd ban it for some idiotic reason.

Australia's kind of near to NZ and Micronesia, they can kind of average out the distance!

I've no doubt Australia would ban it. After all, as far as the Aussie government's concerned, computer games are always, 100% exclusively aimed solely at minors and nobody else.

Also, since Nancy doesn't like to operate in awkward silence, I'm digging around for musicians - anyone fancy having a go at something cartoony?

It'd make a great opportunity for a great Leisure Suit Larry reference.  Maybe not a cameo, but a reference.
Anyone need a proofreader or a brainstormer?  Send me a PM.

Or maybe a tie-in with crackwell? I loved unhinged. I'm not really a "profanity is funny" kind of guy but that shiet was hilarious.

Good luck with this commercial endeavor of yours, technocrat. I love your stuff. The rail rocked!

I'm putting a lot of oomph into it this weekend - especially drawing-wise.



I think I'm improving!
