Title: Ben Jordan Case 4 *UPDATE 1/19/05*
Post by: Grundislav on 01 Dec 2004, 21:03
It's about time I started promoting this one.  FYI there's going to be a total of 9 cases in the series, so I guess this is the halfway mark of sorts.

Ben Jordan Case 4: Horror at Number 50

UPDATE: The January release date looks like it isn't going to happen.  I'm about 50% done with the game, but there's still a lot more to do.  However, I assure you that it will be worth the wait.  ;)

The BJ games keep looking better and better with every new case. Keep it up! :D

Looks and sounds like one of H.P. Lovecraft's works. An entity called the Thing and it causes people to go mad. That's Lovecraft all right. Awesome. Can't wait! Is there a set release date. How far along are you.

Ooh! Another BJ! When I saw the thread my leg started twitching... Can't wait! And if you're saying it's out in January, jolly fast ol' chap!

But what the-? A different outfit? I hope it's not on for too long... And that it's at least as stylish!

P.S. Are there going to be trailer(s) like you had in the last game to be expected?

that's good to see that Case 4 will get a new graphic rework and style ;) I was wondering, when Ben finally buys something else to wear :D

Cool. A new BJ game.  I'd wish you good luck, but after playing the BJ series I can see you don't need it.  ;)

You don't actually need to bump anymore, editing the post will do it for you, afaik.

Is that a promise you can be sure to hold? NINE games! Aren't you painting yourself into a corner by saying this!? What if you want to do something else sometime? Like, playing football or even make a game with a totally different setting and characters?

I was a bit uneasy just stating that FtF would be released in four parts (later changed to three parts). I figured that would take about two years. But NINE games...

Yes, I intend to hold true to that promise.  Of course, just because I say nine games it doesn't mean that's all I'm going to work on. If I get tired of Ben Jordan I intend to take a break, by doing something else or taking a hiatus.

All I'm saying is, don't expect to see Case 9 before 2006  ;)

Hehehe alternatively after BJ4 you can just make BJ9 immediately and consider it final, arguing hat you had lost the scripts.

After years when you want to pick it up again you can just release the inbetween cases as "lost cases of BJ" ;D .

No one said you must release your games in order! Make BJ9 before 2006!

Well done on your previous three Ben Jordan games. It's exactly the type of adventure game that I love. I wait in anticipation for the next great chapter in this brilliant series.

Keep up the good work!

So, how's this coming up, if you don't mind me asking?

Post by: AGA on 06 Feb 2005, 00:32
I doubt Grundislav will mind me telling you this, and I don't care if he does anyway. The game is in beta now, so should be available in the next few weeks.

Oooh! I hope it'll be released on the 25th. That's the day I have my last graduation exam, afterwards, I'm gonna be OH SO VERY FREE... and drunk. Very, very drunk.
