Interesting game!
Nice sound effects, and amusingly bizarre demons...

In the apartment building where the professor lives, go through the first door.  The room looks kind of freaky, right?  Well at the end of the little pathlike area that runs up the middle, there's a hotspot.  You need to click it.  See how things go from there.  :)


I loved this game, Fred.  :D  I haven't had this much fun fighting evil in a long time!
You did a great job, and I hope to see more at a later (or sooner) date.  :)

funny little (MAGS?) game :)
 
I really liked bizarre creatures (one reminded me the Monty Python's Quest for the Holy Grail)

To nope!: Demon Day isn't a MAGS game, but maybe I'll join the competition in May now that I've had a little experience making the first game.

I just finished demon day. Story was OK, dialogs awesome, but two backgrounds were bad - They would be better if were drawn like rest of backgrounds. I'll wait for your next game - I hope, that It'll be even better than this.

I've just played DEMON DAY and I enjoyed it!

The grafix are allright and especially the demon is really funny!

The two "photo" backgrounds don't really look that good though. Change those and the overall impression of the game would be better...

Finished the game really quickly without need for hints (unheard of for me). Agree with previous posts re the background. Also perhaps the next one could be a little more difficult? I enjoyed it though. Good work.

Well, seems to be a scripting problem I've found on it, the game crashes, so maybe not, but after letting the swami guy know where the cat was, getting rid of the first demon, and having the clown demon in the pentagram, any actions on the lady that is hypnotized at the park causes a crash.

Just thought I'd point that out.

---------------------------
Illegal exception
---------------------------
An exception 0xC0000005 occured in ACWIN.EXE at EIP = 0x0042936D ; program pointer is +6, ACI version 2.54.522, gtags (5,25)

AGS cannot continue, this exception was fatal. Please note down the numbers above, remember what you were doing at the time and notify CJ on the Tech forum.

(Global script line 61)


Most versions of Windows allow you to press Ctrl+C now to copy this entire message to the clipboard for easy reporting.

OK

This actually may be a tech issue, but thats the error :)

Wow - somebody's still playing my first gameƂ  :)

Thanks for the comments, the backgrounds could've been a lot better, I agree, I'll put more effort in the graphics in my next games.

About the bug: This is a known issue, related to Win XP. Here's what you can do. Run Setup.exe a second time after the crash, and the crash will never happen again. Kinda weird, but true, and done by lots of people who wanted to finish the game in win xp. You cannot restore saved games from before the crash, but since the crash happens early in the game, you'll quickly get to where you were, because you already figured out how to get there once.
