First, the screenshots look amazing.
Second, congratulations on getting a publisher.
Third, now that I see it, I can't unsee it... the poor shop guy does looks like he could use a sit down when no one else is in the shop. ;-D

keep up the good work

Nice work as usual.

Kinda like a gloomier Risée du Monde.

Hey guys! The game is progressing nicely, here's a fresh screenshot for y'all!
Add spoiler tag for Hidden:
That suit-of-armour looking robot body has exactly the same build and posture as the shopkeeper. Does he wear it?

Isn't the desk a bit short compared to the man?

BTW is that wall-e on the wall :D

Great background!

I do feel that the metallic robots etc. in the background could do with a bit more shiny highlights though, maybe in the colour of the light. They look a bit flat to me, almost like they are drawn on the wall.

Gorgeous graphics! Kathy Rain is on my pc, hopefully one day I'll actually play it haha.

I am slowly catching up with my backlog of games.

Resigning from your job helps.

Thanks for these lovely comments and all the constructive feedback!

We have heard your pleas, and Sture the shopkeeper will be given a magnificent stool in the next iteration of the background. I myself advocated for a throne, but the rest of the team thought that was a bit much :) We'll also have a look at some of the scaling and lighting issues.

In other news, we could also use a few more long term beta testers. If you would like to share the WOAM journey with us, give me a holler at contact [at] clifftopgames , com! (no forum PM please). Cheers!

I would love to beta test, but if it's Steam beta testing only I won't be able to join in the journey.
There are those who believe that life here began out there...

Yes, you'd need Steam.

Yup, sadly, Steam is required, as is creating a Slack account for communicating with the other team members.
