Thanks everyone! :D

surprised Dino looks exactly like me when I wake up late for work and look at the time (laugh)

Heh, you know how it is. :D

Anyway, about the announcement I mentioned before... Zniw Adventure now has its own proper Steam page, along with an improved trailer and a couple of fresh screenshots! No final release date just yet, but man, everyday we're coming closer and closer to the finish line. So yeah, you can wishlist the adventures of our dinosaur heroine if you'd like. :)

Maybe you should post some links or whatever into the Steam forum, in case someone stumbles upon it.

Thanks, everyone. :D So far it looks rather good, let's hope it stays that way 'till the release day. ;)

Alright, another 56k unfriendly post, so brace yourselves.


Well, this is primary a game for kids with educational values.

Also many thanks AnasAbdin, Cassiebsg and Blondbraid! :)

You know I told you the last 5% was the hardest?  It's not.  It's actually the last 3% that's the worst! :grin:

Congrats on getting oh so close to releasing the game. As always, it looks wonderful. ;-D

I can relate, I've been debugging these 101 rooms for so long now, I could easily do a blindfolded speedrun...
Also thanks Captain and Shaun!

So anyway, apart from me finally having some time to fix/add some quality of life improvements (that 'doubleclick for faster movement' was on my todo list for centuries), and rewriting some of the more messy dialogue files, we're slowly starting to do some major, pre-final polishes:

* the educational aspect received a major redesign, as some people during the playtests/events complained it might not be as intuitive as we thought (and questioned why the timeline is in a separate menu). So we just merged both the menu and the timeline into a single page, should be much easier to use now:



* added an additional "zero" screen, which takes place during the 1st and 2nd part of the intro, serving as an interactive tutorial (it's better to let the player experiment and learn the controls/mechanics with a simple puzzle, than to display some text overlays)



...and of course a bunch of new/improved assets. A smiling Zniw! A rare sight indeed!

Tough love, fuck yeah. Let me tell you from a tester's perspective that we complain to make the game better, not because we hate you.

As a guy who works as a QA engineer for 4 years now, I know that. ;) That's why we sat down for a week and redesigned the whole thing from scratch, because your feedback is uttermost important. People literally complained the encyclopedia menus/timeline layout "suck" (sometimes using more... blunt words), so we knew we have to make it better.

Oh, speaking of feedback - I recently added one of the most requested things by the players/testers - quick walk on LMB double click (along with a proper way to wake others a little surprise at the end...)

I love the double click in adventure games! I'd put it in mine, but that's beyond me! Ah well, there's only one large area anyway, so it'd be largely redundant for me I suppose.
