Yep!  :-D :-D

Sorry, I'll see if I can smuggle him in somewhere!

Hmm, I think you've just invented a new word.  "Nitwittyly"... just rolls of the tongue, doesn't it?!   (roll)

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!).

Looks great! I love the 2D Portal cube.

Question: Would it be annoying or helpful if I pointed out that there's a typo in the third screenshot?

Thanks for that.  I'm pretty sure only the text will need changing - I'm pretty sure I voiced it as delivering!!

Phew! I'm glad I could be of assistance! You never know if you're gonna get a response like yours, or some grumbling about "nitpicking" and "grammar Nazi" and "this isn't English class."

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.

Sleeping on the job again...  (laugh)

Typos... well, I can be accused of that... Mind you, many people don't 'speak' English correctly. Know what I mean 'Arry?   

Good luck with the game and soon release.
