Hmm...something tells me people think this is a simple "Space Quest" rip-off and aren't paying attention to it. ALERT! This is NOT a Space Quest rip-off, it is very unique, original and funny (not to mention well voiced) ;)!

I guess we will just have to wait until there is a demo released to prove it!

To be fair I don't exactly have a track record of having released great games (or even any games) in the past, so people are more than likely unsure if this will actually get released - which is fair enough.

But I'll back you up on the not being a Space Quest rip-off, since I've hardly ever played any of the SQ games!!

Thanks KC!

Though it's not going to be in the demo (which we will hopefully release next week - it's mostly done but needs a few tweaks and a but of bug-testing before we unleash it on an unsuspecting public) - I've been playing around with transporter graphics.  This isn't final (and we may have got a new background artist, who might tidy up my amateurish work at some stage!)   

Updated version - I'm much happier with the last few frames now. 8-)

Oh yea, I like the transporter animations!! I feel like I'm suffocating just watching them haha

First post updated with new estimated release date of demo, and updated team members.

We're not actually behind schedule for releasing the demo, we've just put it back because we're including a lot more in the demo than originally planned - I'm pleased to say that development is still going very well.  More news soon!

I've also replaced the link to a sampler reel with an .ogg file instead of the stupidly big .wav file I had there - (not quite sure why I didn't do that in the first place!).

Heh, I've been accused of being a grammar Nazi myself at times!

(My game will of course contain a disclaimer that all grammatical and typographical errors in the game are not in fact errors, but intentional misphrases misspellings. :))

For sure help is always appreciated, wouldn't want to launch this puppy with typos! Many of these screen shots are earlier versions however, we've had a lot change since then I believe.

"Team Disaster"?!?!  Well I suppose it's appropriate...

Guys, thanks for your kind comments and I'm really glad a few people are looking forward to the game.  Just to let you know what's happening at the moment, right now we're finishing off the playable demo - implementing the puzzles first, then updating the dialogues, descriptions etc, and finally adding all the voice acting.  In 2-3 weeks we should have a fully complete playable demo for you.

In the meantime we're also working on assets to be used in other parts of the game - backgrounds, music tracks, puzzle and story design etc.

Here are a couple of alien sprites on a background as a preview. This is NOT an in-game screen shot, it's just a mock up with concept art that we made to see how they look together, magnified in size.

Demo release getting closer! We've added tons of content compared to my original idea for the demo, so I hope everyone will think it was worth the wait.  ;-D  (The talking pizza alone should make it worth the wait...)

The fish seems smaller and the sea bigger every day, even though we've had some nice mentions in the online gaming press.  Hopefully we'll get a bit more interest when the demo comes out.

It is coming soon, we just keep adding more to it.  I'd rather see it take longer and be better than rush the release.  The game now features far more puzzles and characters than originally envisioned!

The bad news is, our background artist has disappeared.

The good news is, my own attempts at creating backgrounds haven't been as terrible as I thought they would be.  Here's a work in progress of the alien market on Acturus-1:

Well, as long there is progress, keep it up.

Sorry Darth, that wasn't the intention - more to show that work on the game was still advancing despite the loss of an artist.  However I can see how it might have looked that way so I'll be more careful in future.

On another note, here's a sample of the theme music (to avoid any ambiguity, this is NOT posted asking for a critique).  The theme tune will almost definitely not appear in the demo version, which we are currently working hard to complete.

So far (from my excessively obsessive scouring of the net for anything relating to the demo release) feedback has been overwhelmingly positive.  I'm not sure which emotion I'm feeling most about that, happiness or sheer relief!!

Glad you're enjoying it - I won't spoil it for you by giving you a hint!  (wrong)  I'm sure you'll figure it out soon enough.

I've added an overview of the demo in 13 screenshots to the dev blog if anyone's interested...

Playing it right now, and it's great stuff. The sense of humor is right up my alley! Figuring out how to get the ring as of right now... can't wait to play the rest of the game!

Hey Jaffles!  Very glad to hear you're enjoying it - if many more people have trouble finding the ring we may have to add another hint about it...

Also, the first review of the demo has appeared!  :smiley:

Ah the RING is our Demo nemesis I see....if anyone is still needing help with that....

UHS Style:

Let's just say it's the most polarizing puzzle in the demo.

Kirk may have checked his "captains log" for a solution, Captain Disaster has a better multi-tool.

I've added a poll to the dev blog to see if people thought that puzzle was too difficult - head over to http://www.captaindisasterthecomputergame.com/ and cast your vote now!

(We'll put an extra hint in the full game if people thought it was too hard.)

I thought the ring puzzle was fairly easy; the hardest part was knowing to walk further to the right. maybe arrow keys to show there is more there?  I am stuck now with the pizza. I have tried everything on the microwave, I still can't wake up the broom either, and I am thinking the broom has to do something with the pizza. what thing am I missing?

Quick update - work is steadily progressing on the game, and now that Adventure-X has been confirmed I can tell you that I will be presenting about the game there (or if for any reason I'm unable to be there, M0Ds will do it).  We hope to have a new playable build for you to try at Adventure-X too, but I can't confirm that at the moment.  Even if there isn't a new build on display, be assured that we are making progress!

I will also be doing a short presentation on the other Captain Disaster game (announced on the dev blog but not on the AGS forums yet), Troll Song and The Journey of Iesir.

At Adventure-X, I'm pretty certain now that we won't have a new public build of the game.  We will however have a new trailer showcasing some of the new locations etc in the game.

One of the locations will be a huge rubbish dump containing some famous shipwrecks (but no trains):

Yup, we're shooting for a release in 20013 Q4 - ideally with physical copies of the game ready for an official launch at Adventure-X 2013!  (Don't hold me to that unless nearer the time I say it's definitely happening though!  8-))

Quick progress update:

The Bit Priest has taken over as Lead Programmer (can't remember if I'd ever made that public?!?)

Act I status:

Background art - 95% done (we've been badly let down by successive artists, so I'm doing most of it myself now... so you only have me to blame!)
Character art - 20%
Storyline - 100%
Puzzles - 80$ designed
Dialogues - 25% 
Music - 40%
SFX - 10%
Voice Acting - 5%


(Before you all gasp in horror and say "what? you've hardly started!" - can I just point out that Act II is already nearly 50% done in total.

When you go to the website, it's REALLY slow at first - is that because the game is pre-loading into the frame?  (Ah, frames... haven't seen those for a while!) - but when I click on Asteroids!, there's nothing in the frame.   :sad:

(Ah... until I clicked into the frame, then it came up.  But it was very slow and then froze.  Not sure how much having the music playing is affecting things?)

Tried it a few times and it wouldn't work I'm afraid... might be because this laptop isn't much cop, if anyone else finds it works fine please PM M0DS or myself.  (Mark we'll take this to PM now ourselves until we can actually confirm it as working.)

EDIT - this now seems to be working fine... for everyone but me!  Stupid laptop...

Getting a little impatient about posting something new when we've been working so hard on the game, so here are a few stats and stuff from you from the latest build:

- 36 Rooms
- 17 Characters
- 929 Sprites
- 602 Lines of speech
- 2 new specially composed music tracks recently added to the game
- Many lines of alien gibberish dialogue
- Puzzles galore

Much more to come of course!

Should have a new video to show you pretty soon, also intensive beta testing of Act I is due to start in within the next 2 months.

Thanks Shaun, glad you enjoyed the demo!

Did someone ask for screenshots?  Here are 20 of them from our very latest build!  (Please note some are still WiP - the smaller ones are showing only a portion of the screen.)



It begins...



CD gets assertive...



... but it was a bad idea.



The Customs Official REALLY doesn't mean this...



Uh-oh...



Alien Marketplace comedians...



Cue disgusting puzzle to get something from this alien...



There is no alien here yet... but there will be...



Ooh, an energy pool!



An inconveniently small doorway...



A cunning reference to two adventure games in one sentence...



CD wants to boogie... or maybe he doesn't.  Just wait till you see the dancing robot on this thing!



What is this?  I'm not telling you!



Don't believe a word of it, she's only after your money...



Possibly the worst joke in the whole game, though it has plenty of competition!



A retro top-down view!  Sadly no SuperSprint mini-game though.



Hmm... looks familiar...



An obelisk... but no monkeys!



Once you have explored a bit you can go back and annoy the customs official with lots of stupid questions - yay!



Look, I did not shameless steal the speeder design from Star Wars: A New Hope, ok?   Oh all right you got me, that's exactly what I did.





I'm also pleased to announce that our Beta Test Team is now fully established and ready for us to throw a meaty test build at them in the near future:

Lead Tester:    Arj0n
Beta Testers:   Cat, Tabata, LTGiants2000

Thanks Paul.  That was one of LTGiant2000's sprites - before working on this game he never knew before that he had a knack for drawing aliens!!

Fortunately TheBitPriest is going over a lot of my backgrounds and making them look better, so the actual game will look nicer than those screenshots - the dance floor in particular is virtually unrecognisable from my original drawing!

Fortunately for me, TheBitPriest is as handy with his pixels as he is with his scripting... so he's redoing some of the backgrounds for me.  The game is going to look MUCH better as a result.

Yes, I still exist.  I have wanted to be more involved with the AGS community, but I had some issues in Real Life that took my attention.  My first AGS commitment was made to Captain D to help code Death Has a MSB when he advertised in the help wanted thread, and so, I am focusing on keeping that commitment before doing anything else. 

This game is not about the art.  But when we took a step back and started playing through Stomping Boots, it seemed to me that the screens were just too different from one section to the other. I started "touching them up" to make them fit the demo and... well... now we're redoing some them as fast as possible in order to stay on schedule! I know they're not perfect, but I think the style holds together. 

While many are doing OROW 8 I'm doing a OWOM (One Week One Marketplace) re-drawn, re-coded challenge!  Only a few days left!

Great progress on art! At first, I was not too much interested in this game because of the sloppy and mixed graphic style but now this looks really promising  :)
Since you are aiming for a commercial release, I'm sure this additional effort will literally pay off.

Thanks Miguel!  It would be interesting to know what Spielberg's reaction would be if we did ask him to help!!  (laugh)

Is than an NES in that one room?!  ROFL!

Something like that, but we'll probably call it a Z-Box 4680.   (roll)

Yes, that's one of our less subtle references.  Although most of our references have all the subtlety of a brick wrapped in a lettuce leaf come to think of it...  (roll)

CaptainD,

I just checked your profil. There are two links of Captain Disaster.

The first one seems to be a commercial game and the second one says nothing.

Is Captain Disaster a commercial game of a free game to play?

@Vulcan - Captain Disaster in Death Has A Million Stomping Boots is the game that is currently in production, that this thread is about, and that those videos were from.  It will be a commercial release.

Captain Disaster in "The Dark Side of the Moon" is a recently released freeware game - based on the same character and with the same style of humour, but otherwise unrelated this Stomping Boots.  You can get it here.


With Stomping Boots we're currently nearing the production of Act I, after which we will begin an intensive phase of beta testing.  Act II is already half-done, as part of it is the section of the game featured in the Demo.

Latest screenshots (some WiP):













































This is most of the locations from Act I and all of the indoor locations in Act II (you will be controlling the ship itself for half of it - exciting or what?! :-D)

We're closing in on getting Act I fully finished, delayed a little as we ended up deciding to add a couple of puzzles / mini-games.  Our testers have had a preliminary look at the build and I'm a little nervous as to what they might have found!

BTW if anyone here runs a blog and would like to be put on a list to get a preview version of just Act I, please PM mew.  It would be nice to get some early coverage of what people think of the first part of the game while we create the rest of it.

Okay, just wanted to do a quick update since it's been a while.

Firstly, in case anyone had started to wonder, yes the game is still very much in production.  Much slower than we'd like due to real-life pressures (especially moving house!), but it's going.

We're still finishing up Act I.  Part of the reason for this taking so long is that we've decided to add an extra puzzle mini-game, which has taken some time to design, script and test.    TheBitPriest has also been adding some groovy lighting effects to improve the look of some of the locations.

Within the next month we hope to have Act I completely playable from start to finish.  Once that's off to the testers (Arj0n, Cat and Tabata), we'll begin working on Act 2 straight away (the demo sequence is a fair amount of act 2 so that's already done!).  Ben (ThreeOhFour) will be doing the backgrounds for Act II so it's guaranteed to look great!).

We're aiming for the 3 acts to each have different feel - so Act I has lots of locations, characters and inventory-object puzzles; Act II will have those too, but a large part of it will involve you controlling the ship instead of the captain, and having to fight off space pirates (NOT an arcade sequence though!); Act III will have plenty of locations, few characters you can talk to and more devious puzzles that should exercise the old grey matter a bit more.

We're hoping to be able to speed up production a bit later in the year, and are going to pull out all the stops to get this game released at the end of 2014, probably using Adventure-X as the official launch.

More news as we have it!

Just to let you know that we're still plugging away at this, guys.  TheBitPriest and myself are making real progress... it's just difficult to have exciting new things to show and tell every couple of weeks!  But rest assured that the game is in fact packed with even more puzzles and dreadful jokes than it was last time I posted.

Fairly big news - the game is fully playable right from the start up to halfway through the game (halfway through Act II).  Not officially beta tested yet of course, but still, it was a blast playing the whole way through Act I for the first time (played parts of it MANY times of course, but never all the way from start to finish) - and if I had fun doing it, hopefully you will, right? ;)

What's this?  A leak?  (roll)

Hey... that uniform looks familiar.  I wonder how you get that??  Is wearing it such a good idea?

That girl behind the booth is kind of hot...Captain-Cork-hot, that is.



After playing through the game as it is to date (about 80% complete), my 11 yo daughter says, "It's lots of fun!  I want more!!"  There was a lot of laughter around the screen from the three play-testers, especially during the introductory cut scenes.

(head back down now.  code. paint. code. design. chat with Captain D. run design by boss.  make changes. code design from the capt. bug fix. more coding. and the saga continues.)

Quick update - Acts I and II are complete (minus VA and a little polish), currently with the testers.  Have commissioned all the artwork and music for Act III and work on putting it all together is already in progress.  Not making any promises, but we're still looking at a December 2014 release if we possibly can.

Thought it was about time that I posted an update on this...

Test report is in, bugs are being fixed, little enhancements made here and there, and gameflow being finalised.  Work on Act III will start as soon as we have the backgrounds and are satisfied with Acts I&II.

Sorry about the lack of updates folks, the game is still in full production and here are a couple of screenshots to prove it:





Current Status:

Graphics: 100%
Animation: 90%
Music: 100%
SFX: 100%
Voice Acting: 5%
Testing: 80%

Act II

Design: 100%
Graphics: 100%
Animation: 100%
Music: 100%
SFX: 100%
Voice Acting: 50%
Testing: 80%

Act III

Graphics: 40%
Animation: 10%
Music: 20%
SFX: 0%
Voice Acting: 0%
Testing: 0%

(Although Acts I and II have been fully tested, experience shows that it's wise to at least get it tested one final time, there always seems to be something that gets missed by everyone including me!)

I guess I should really do another update post on this...

We've been working hard behind the scenes and Act III is really coming together nicely, and only a handful of remaining art and music assets remain to be delivered.  We have made a couple of changes to puzzles earlier in the game to improve game flow, and will be looking at the introductory sequence again to add some extra gameplay elements.

Once all this is done, after the testers have broken it (damn them! :grin:) and we have fixed it again, we will be looking at existing assets that need to be upgraded.  This is partly to make the look of the whole game more consistent, and partly just to make the whole game look as good as it plays, plus rechecking the puzzle logic of the entire game to make sure there are no continuity issues.  Then I'll be adding some more SFX to it and finally the voicing needs to be added.

It's going to take some time but we're committed to making a game that we'll be proud of - if we'd decided to just do a rush job on things the game could have been out last year, but it would have been nowhere near as good.  I just hope that people will still be looking forward to the game when it is finally released!

Recent additions to the team have been Mandle (testing) and LostTrainDude (assisting with production and puzzle analysis).  I'm sure we can give them some properly impressive job titles when the time comes 8-)

Thanks to all the people who have continued to show interest in the game and encouraged us to keep going, we think that you're going to be happy with the result.  It may be released at the end of this year but I can't guarantee it - we'll release it when we're satisfied that the overall quality is high enough for us to be happy with it.

A little news:

Gaming cryptocurrency GoldPieces is now sponsoring us.  Won't mean a great deal to the development process but the funds might help here and there.  (Don't worry, we won't be inserting hundreds of GP references into the game!  May add one if it can be done with comedy value.)

Also, I have finally updated our screenshots page.  It's a little more representative of the final quality of the game now, although we may still make further improvements before the game is released.

Work on Act III continues, we're very close to having the whole game playable from start to finish. 

Not forgetting of course that the whole saga begins with Captain Disaster accepting a job...



No, not that one.  But as you can see, our in-game references to other sci-fi books / movies etc continues to be very... um... subtle.  Dan Dare fans may be glad to know that there is a reference added to Act III - I wonder how many will spot it?  We shall see!  (Hmm... I feel the game is lacking in Buck Rodgers and Flash Gordon influence... but fear not, these will not be added to the game just for the sake of it, only if my warped mind thinks they will add humour.

More or less! :-D

Project is going nicely overall, obviously we would prefer to be able to spend more time on it but real life is a pain that way.  Working on improving game flow in Acts I and II while continuing to progress Act III, which is looking good so far.

The graphics are so delightfully pixelated and oldschool, I sure do like them! And boy, am I glad I didn't sell my old flatscreen CRT monitor back in the day when I had a chance, these screens look so charming on it! :D

Just a note: These screens are already out of date. 8-) We're making daily progress as we go back through, polish screens, update dialog, delete scenes, etc.  It's coming together.  It's been an honor to work alongside some of AGS's most talented artists. 

We have held back revealing much of Act III (hence the development silence), but we can reveal that towards the end we double-down on retro.

Double. Down.

It's meta-apple-II-tastic!

Sorry for the lack of updates recently, but we've been doing a lot of tweaking, consolidating and making little udner the hood improvements (well okay, TBP has been doing about 98% of what I just said!) - which is necessary, will make the game better, but is not something very exciting to talk about.

So, how about some screenshots that show what the game looks like nowadays?

















Please note that these are only from Acts I & II - Ben has done us some lovely backgrounds in the same style for Act III, but it;s been difficult to choose screenshots which won't contain spoilers.  We're working on it... ;)

More screenshots... I think we're done now.  Will be sending the updated screenshot pack to adventure game sites etc soon.  Will be updating the first post in this thread with the up-to-date screenshots and information too.  I also need to give the dev blog a bit of a rehash and update it more frequently.

These are all partial screenshots - we don't want to give too much away, but we want to show you as much of the game in action as possible.

Thanks Shaun ;-D

I'm just tying up details of a pre-order / investment plan for the game using the crytpocurrency that sponsors it, "GoldPieces".  I don't know how much interest this will generate in the crypto community, and suspect that very few regular gamers are going to want to invest in an altcoin (basically any type of cryptocurrency other than Bitcoin) just to pre-order our game.  But we feel it's something worth pursuing, especially as it will be (to the very best of our knowledge, "us" including the dev of GoldPieces) a world first.

I have posted about this and another Captain Disaster related update on the dev blog that people who've played the other CD game (Dark Side of the Moon) might be interested in: http://www.captaindisasterthecomputergame.com/2016/03/updates.html

Um... did I really say I would be doing ALL of the voices?  (I am for the other, much smaller Captain Disaster game - Dark Side of the Moon - but not this one!!)

Good luck with the pre-orders!

I've decided not to go ahead with the pre-orders just now.  I'm not happy about the idea of taking people's money when I don't yet have a confirmed release date!


Thanks everyone for the comments and interest. ;-D  (If you like the "nose lady" then wait till you see... ah I can't really tell you, but you'll love the character, I promise ;))

We're getting towards the completion of Act III, will be going back and adding / improving some graphics and animation, then adding voice acting and some more SFX.  It's all coming together quite nicely.

Very soon we will be posting some exciting news about the game.  But in the meantime...

If you would like to read the stories (and possibly make a voluntary payment for them, but it's perfectly okay to download them for free) - I've released a new eBook edition of the 11 short stories to date on itch.io.

Also I've released the fully voiced version of my other CD game, Captain Disaster in The Dark Side of the Moon.  Just in case anyone needs it, I've posted a walkthrough.

Watch this space...

I start my voice acting tomorrow!!! Soooo nervous and yet soooo excited at the same time...

The reason for being nervous is that I have actually gotten to play the game: A game so legendary in its development cycle that few AGSers believe that it actually exists (data acquired through a conclusive polling of 1 AGSer)...

And I have seen the glory of what IS DHAMSB (say the acronym out loud...It's fun!)

NO REALLY!

SAY IT!!!
>:(

My reason for being excited is that I get to voice the character most pivotal to the plot:

Official testing has now started! Yee-har!

I would like to take this opportunity to publicly thank TheBitPriest, who has been absolutely amazing and the game would never have reached this stage without his tireless efforts, and the game is much better than it would have been as a result of his valuable advice on several occasions.

Now I will fret anxiously for a few days wondering what weirdness my testers will come up with...

We're currently finishing up RC1. Hope the testers don't find too many bugs!! :shocked:
So, how are we doing? :P

Jokes aside, I was not sure what to think about splitting the game in two parts, but after my second round of testing - the first one being at least three years ago - I changed my mind.
So much time has passed since the first testing and it was pretty easy for me to notice how the game's scope grew since. Plenty of stuff has been added and I could see how some design ideas, that simply weren't there before, helped this stuff into the game.

Also, as I probably already said here somewhere, I learned about the series Red Dwarf while testing this and SMEG if it was worth it (laugh)

Many thanks to Katschey for the awesome header image!

And great work by Katschey, as always!

Thanks Chris for the comments above.  Just wanted to add, since we're basically at final Release Candidate status, the verdict of another one of out testers:

I've finally had chance to end the game.
I'm really enjoyed! It's fun, not small, not boring nor repetitive. I put at same level of an "official" published "mainstream" game.

I got a bit worried that people who do not know the back story of this "joke" might read it and think I was serious about the voice acting.

The "joke" is because CaptainD himself voices the main character (and I the robot mentioned in my next post), so it was just meant as a friendly dig.

The voice of Captain Disaster is actually perfect for the character and makes the game's humour all the more appealing.

CaptainD has done a fantastic job coordinating the voice acting for our game, and he has also really grown as an actor along the way.

Okay to save getting all mushy and emotional in the game's release thread (coming soon people!), I would like to publicly thank TheBitPriest for his amazing hard work and dedication to the game.  Honestly there's no way it would have happened without him, sometimes I find myself thinking this is more his game than mine!

So, without further ado... THANK YOU BitPriest!

@Mandle - I'm hoping people would have realised you were joking, but I can guarantee there will be at least one person on GameJolt who tells me my voice acting sucks, there always is!  :grin:

So... current status... Acts I & II are 100% complete and have been tested to within an inch of their lives.  So, we've decided to give you the original game experience - the full game - that we'd always intended to, instead of releasing the game in 2 parts.  Sure it will take us a bit more work but it will be so much more satisfying for you as the player, as well as ourselves as developers, to have the full game as nature intended. 

Act III is well in progress, and we're in a better position to move things forward than we have been for a while (in terms of real life issues and what have you).  I'm not putting a release date to this thing just yet, but... watch this space.

Actually 3 Acts - Acts 1 & 2 were going to be parcelled up as "Part One", and Act 3 would have been "Part Two".  But enough of that nonsense!  We will release the game as one glorious, homogeneous whole.

As for release date... haha nice try, but not getting that specific just yet.

For those who remember the demo, here's a quick look at how some of the old graphics have been revamped for the game proper:

If anyone watched the trailer initially and the image quality was absolutely terrible, watch it again and it should be a lot better.  Seems to be a weird think that YouTube does, only properly sorting out its own processing of the vid after 24-28 hours.

Yep I noticed that it takes several hours for YT to actually upload the trailer to HD quality. They'll give you the option to select HQ early but it won't be HQ.

Liked the vid, best of luck Cap. :)

Thanks Startropy!

Just a quick update - Act III is set to go out for initial testing within the next week, the game is playable from start to finish, all music assets are complete.  It takes nearly an hour and a half to complete the game even with skipping dialogues and cut scenes, not doing anything superfluous and knowing exactly what you're doing at every step of the game.  So the full game should give you some solid hours of puzzling.

Planning on putting a second Teaser Trailer out there sometime in the next few weeks while we work on honing Act III into its final state.

As we get ever closer to the actual release (not wanting to be too specific but we;''re still thinking in terms of 2017 unless something goes drastically wrong), it felt like time to allow players to have a peek into the overall plot.  Therefore a second teaser trailer has been released - hope you enjoy it!

Thanks!  Yes it is my voice with a very cheesy Brummie accent ;-D

I made several mistakes with the first trailer - things that seemed a good idea at the time but weren't - especially the opening with a blank screen for several seconds and narrating it myself in a faux dramatic voice.  I had a much stronger concept for this one and it turned into a better trailer - and definitely one that gives you more of a flavour of what the game will actually be like.  You live and learn I guess! :grin:  Thanks for watching!

I felt the same, for me I think the EQ felt a bit off and the background music was drowning out some words.  But I did like the overall trailer and this is a game I am definitely still interested in playing.

Well Brummie was officially voted the UK's "least sexy accent" which considering some of the competition is some going!  My own bad impression of Brummie is probably even worse :-D

At any rate in the game itself the voicing, music and SFX all have independent volume controls, so hopefully that will help.  Glad you liked the trailer!

I remember a site saying about the demo - I can't quite remember now, I think the site was Polish or Turkish - said there was something "not quite right" / "a bit worrying" about the voice.  Of course with this character, that's kind of the point - he's not actually stupid, more goofy and clueless at times, prone to doing bizarre things.  So I hope that will actually come through in the game and not simply have people thinking "well this voice acting is weird!"...
