Captain Disaster takes a job delivering a package from Acturus-1 to Proboscis Major - not realising that he is actually transporting something that will put the entire galaxy in danger!  Though just getting the package in the first place is quite a challenge in itself...

I'd like to thank the AGS community for all their support over the (just slightly long!) development process - it's been a difficult process at times and your encouragement has really helped keep me going. 

Also without TheBitPriest's amazing dedication to the project it would never have got completed.  Thanks buddy!


I've put the game page up now - http://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/site/games/game/2227/.

Congratulations! Finally it is done - I know how hard you have been working on this, with ups and downs, but you did it! I had the honour to test act 1 and 2 and the game is really great - classic puzzles, funny dialogs and hilarious references to almost every science fiction franchise between here and Acturus-1.

Don't forget to add the game to the AGS database Done :)

Thanks all! As I said on the GIP thread, it was a wild ride.

Some day, we'll write up a good post-mortem. We had at least as much drama in our real lives as the game itself!

Congratulations! Bought it as a birthday present for myself, so thanks for the well-chosen release date :)
This also makes it the first and only game I've ever purchased on day one.

Yay! After half a decade of development it's here!! I've followed this for so long it would feel like a crime to not play it.
Congratulations!

It's really lovely to see so much support for the game!  We both really appreciate it.  Hobo - I feel honoured that CD is your very first "1st day purchase"! ;-D

Amayirot and SinSin did some really terrific voice work for the game, it wouldn't be the same without their input.

Thanks Arj0n and Blondbraid!

@Two Tales - well you wouldn't want to be guilty of a crime now, would you? :-D

Congratulations on getting this out at last! Here's hoping you make a million in the first 48 hours and can retire to Hawaii. :)

In a way, this is the first Captain Disaster game. It just took a little longer! There’s one reference to The Dark Side of the Moon in Act 3 (maybe two).

You should give The Dark Side of the Moon a spin. It’s clever, but there’s no need to play it first.
