Where other games have the "I can't reach that" excuse, you got an acrobatic cat. (laugh)

I think that may just be the single most awesome cat in gaming history! 8-)

Sometimes I wonder if it's worth putting the extra few hours into fun little animations like this, but hey, apparently it is! Thanks, you guys :-D

Sure it is!
That's what adventure games live on, small details like that just show how much care and love the developer has put into the game. (nod) And you doing it brilliantly! Keep it up. :-D

Hey, so, in case you were wondering what's taking this game so long to appear, among others it's responses. Custom responses. LOTS OF THEM.

But everything is better grasped visually, so I made a gif:



...this number doesn't include the actual bulk of the writing, that is character to character dialogues.

Fun times! (laugh)

Love the BG!
And yes, lots and lots of text... that some players will never actually see (some just do the basic to get the game moving, or just follow a walk-through missing all this richness! 8-0)

Keep up the long, tedious and fun work. (laugh)

Thank you, Cassie. Well, they always say adventure games aren't big on replayability, so while it doesn't affect the plot, you can have another go just to see what you've missed.

I was initially considering a "rubbed everything on everything" achievement, but at this point it would be nigh unachievable (laugh)

Oh, not me, I click everywhere!
I like to exhaustively search a "room", before I move on (not to say I actually find everything the first time though). (laugh)

Hey peeps.

New Kickstarter update is up, clickety-click!

 I know those of you who backed us (thank you again!) already know, but I figured I'd link it in here for everyone else, too.

We talk about moving office (gasp!), getting two more girls on the team (double gasp!) and being content complete. Check it out!

Great to see you're getting near the end of development!

An encouraging thought for you - the last 10% takes as much effort as the previous 90%! 8-0 8-)

Do you have any plans to set up a steam page? This will definitely be going on my wishlist!

Re: Gibbous - A Cthulhu Adventure
« Reply #194 on: 28 Feb 2018, 12:33 »
Definitely coming really soon. We keep saying "Hey, we should put that Steam page up" to each other, and keep getting caught in production stuff.
It's coming! ;-D

Sneak preview of Don's appearance in our upcoming launch trailer.



(He won't be looping in the trailer)

It looks 3d-ish, but it's just lots and lots of transparent pngs (30, to be precise) being moved around and scaled at different speeds.
When you can't afford 3d, fake it! ;)
