Did you intend to make the main characters look like Kate and Riki from Garfunkel and Oates or was that a happy coincidence?

Game looks great! I hope to see it finished!

Haha! That's adorable. I've always been a fan of that pregnant women are smug song they did. I wish we based them off these two, but the characters were already set in stone before I started working on the project (I got hired just after the original sprite artist). The references and clothing Gurok wanted for them were completely different from those two, so I think it's just a happy coincidence. One I'm very fond of now.

Thanks! I'll try my hardest to keep this thread a little more updated than usual.

Hi catpunter!
Your artwork makes me salivate (not in a perv way, more of a nerd way).

Thanks everyone!

The game was put on hold so Gurok and I could participate in the MAGS competition for July! We fought the entire way but with a lot of spite and some help from the lovely people in the IRC channel we managed to finish it. Pheeeeew. I need a week off or so before starting up on the Kate and Shelly art again, but we'll get there.

Go check out our entry, "The Jimi Hendrix Case" when you get a chance!

Would anybody be interested in me recording a video of painting a background for the next set so everyone can see what kind of process I use? Would that be helpful or interesting to you guys, or would you just prefer good ol' screenshots?

After coming back and looking through this thread fully for the first time in quite a while I must say:

This is one of the WiPs I'm most looking forward to finally playing when it's finished! This game appears to have it all: Charming characters, great artwork, interesting plot, adventurous feel, and that most elusive and hard to define feeling you get when you are experiencing a truly great game!!!

So please: take your time to get everything just right and hurry the hell up and release this game!!! (laugh)

Wow, it's almost Christmas again. Thanks for the good wishes, Mandle and SilverSpook.

*cough*

*COUGH*

There's a lot of dust in *this* thread too! I can't believe almost a whole year's gone by.

I'm still working on the game, doing bits and pieces after work and on weekends.

I wanted to wait until I had something nice to show you all, so here it is. These are the thirteen characters that are going to be in the game!



Fine work again by Catpunter! Yes, one of them is basically Stalin. You should see his moustache when it's animated!

--

Making a game is tough when you have to work full time. Without wanting to make things too depressing, I won't get a chance to work on this properly until midway through next year. I plan to take time off, and this time I *will* resist the urge to do MAGS. I've been tinkering with little bits in between (mostly systems stuff), but to do any proper writing, I need to be away from work, stress and people in general.

Top of my to-do list right now is adding support for a fourth option to the verb coin (which is only presented when there's more than one action to choose from). The four-option mode will be used for controlling things that go up, down, left and right.

Looking back at the old screenshots, it's interesting to see the old antialiased font. I like it better in some ways, but I've since pared it back to solid black+white with *really* minimal antialiasing. This was mostly a reaction to my mum's comment when I gave her a demo, "it's nice, but why is there a blurry effect on the text?". I think I might contact Grandma Zoo (if you remember her) and get it done properly.

Well, that's how things are going in my world. Hopefully it won't be 10 months between updates next time!
