Very nice graphics and I wonder how can we play that story.
But 2019 a little far away :(

neon world GFX are always cool! Looking great so far and the story blurb is also very interesting. The only downside is the release date that is so far away!!! :-D

I'm getting some sweet Blade Runner/Akira flashbacks just by watching the screenshots. Definitely gonna keep my eye on this one. :)

This project is giving me serious Technobablyon vibes.  All the best with production, definitely one to keep an eye on!

Looks great and I'm digging that story pitch. Also, well done on the realistic release date :) Most AGS projects really underestimate the length of their development process.

Guys you are all great, thanks for the positive responses! This community is awesome! :-D

The release date is a bit in the future, I know. We have already planned the whole game, we broke it in how many AGS rooms we are going to have, and extrapolated the time to end development from the time we spent in each room we already developed, so hopefully this is reasonably realistic.

The game interface will allow the player to interact and look using the mouse, and have an inventory to store and use items, we started from the BASS template and have been iterating from there. The game resolution is going to be 320x180, so it will scale nice in 16:9 screens.

My first thought was Until I Have You -- especially the story revolving around a guy haunted by memories of a girl. Looks and sounds great. And kudos for devising a realistic schedulue and ETA.

Looks awesome, I was drawn in by the title which reminded me of the Amiga game Flashback. Kind of a similar vibe going on, can't wait to play this

+1

How many times have we seen WIP posts naming a release date within the year only to either fade away and never be heard from again or show up two years later with an announcement that the game is almost finished, or even finally get released 5-10 years later?

A realistic schedule tells me at least that you have the staying power to get the game done, or at least release it at some point even if it's not 100% what you had planned out right at the start.

It looks awesome so far and best of luck!

Looks cyberpunktastic! Would you be interested in being on a podcast? I specialize in cyberpunk, sci-fi and story-rich adventure games, and would love to have a chat if you'd like to promote your game there.
