Yeah, I'm aware of those guys. Back in the 80s we had monthly Mickey magazine(basically, our version of Topolino, I'm from Croatia) with assorted comics by Italian and American authors. But Cavazzano always stood out with his unique art style. Romano Scarpa was great too, and of course, any story by Carl Barks.
I think it was Cavazzano who drew first CYOA-style stories with multiple endings back in the mid 80s. That stuff was addicting as hell for us kids. We used to run to the newsstand on release day! It was the start of adventure gaming before we had our VCRs, C64s, Amigas, Nintendos, and waaay before anyone had a PC. Just numbered sheets of paper. :shocked:  Glory days.

Will do bud! Super keen to see how 1080p pans out with AGS, this is something I've had my eye on for a while. ;)

Hi, everyone!

Wow, our backers were faster than light! We wanted to give you guys a surprise at 60% (or 6.000€) but over the weekend you actually broke the 7k mark! Thanks a lot for your generosity and your trust in our project. We are really humbled by your support.
So, here’s the surprise: As you know, we’ve been extensively touring game shows in Italy (and not only Italy, as a matter of fact; we had an event in London as well) so we received a lot of cash donations by fans and supporters around Europe. Finally, with all the beans counted and registered properly, we can put that money into the actual campaign total and… wow, we’re at 90%+! This means we have LESS than 900€ to go to reach 10.000€ (PostepayCrowd will fill the final 5k, as you know) and 9 full days ahead of us! Let’s spread the word and walk this extra mile before we can start talking about the STRETCH GOALS!

Hello everybody,

let me recap the status of Detective Gallo right now.

-   GUI: 100%
-   Scripting: 85%
-   Animations: 60% (we are focusing on new animations and cutscenes)
-   Locations: 100%
-   Sounds: 50%
-   Music: 90%

In a month more or less we'll be getting into the balancement step, in order to refine dialogues and puzzles difficulty, and to improve the pace of the overall experience.
If you have played the Alpha demo (always downloadable from eppela website, please see below) and you want to share doubts, critics and suggestions with us, please feel free!

That would be much appreciated from our side, thanks in advance!

Lovely art, I'm a sucker for twisted and surreal cartoon shapes, though I'm curios on how the fish-eye perspective will work in the game!

Thanks!  :wink:

Consider that this location will scroll horizontally because it is longer than 1920 p.
Anyway, the artistic ispiration comes from the bizarre, deformed and wonderful perspectives of Peter Chan's backgrounds!
