Are you the only voice actor for this? Congrats on your (correct me if I'm wrong) first game.

Dug the Mind's Eye reference, and several of the scenes were quite amusing.  Nice work!

Yoda man: Every voice is mine except when they're female! I >could< have employed
voice artists to mix it up. but I loved doing them myself! Hopefully they are different enough to be distinguishable.

ProgZmax: Thanks! Yeah I think I'd just recently played Mind's eye when I put that bit in, which shows how long the game was in production hell!

CosmoQueen: Whoooo hooo!!! I hope you like!!  :D

thewalrus: I never thought I'd see the day!

Matt:

Downloading now mate.

I want to listen to the voices and hear the music and enjoy the full game.

Expect (god willing that is) a review from me :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

Either way this is your baby, your game, your effort!

congrats! YAY!

And it looks damn good, in a weird way! I mean you're not the grahpic guru, yet your graphics are appealing, and the game has been taken care of hugely, as far as I know... So... Everything is DAMN GOOD!

Hi, I've been playing the game tonight. Really liked it, voice-overs are particularly great. Puzzles are laden to the easy side, but that's Ok. I really liked the one when you are with the bum. Maybe I founf the size of the inventory too big, but it's not a big nuisance.

Congrats,

Glorioso. The voices kicked all sorts of ass. How did you get so many people to work for you?

What do you mean, you didn't?

Nikolas: I appreciate it! I know also how busy you always are, here's a little R&R!

Serth: Hi and welcome to the AGS forum? Thanks! If I ever make another AGS game I'll try to make a smaller inventory!

Mordalles: Masterfully done eh? Nice one! I'm happy you enjoyed it!

Esper: Haha!  ;D

They're all right; it is quite the enjoyable game. It's so funny that I tried to bring it with me today to school but it wouldn't fit on my usb along with my own game  ;D ::)

Grats on getting the game complete! :)

Just played it through! Great game! :) Decent graphics, great humour, just hard enough puzzles and excellent voices!!
Even though the graphics arenĀ“t the best around, they are extremely charming in their own way! :)
The mix between humour and seriousness makes it an even better game.

When is the sequel coming? :P

Thanks for the game manic.

This was one of the best I ever played ,

I wonder how you got this speech done :o


The puzzles were a bit too easy, but ok.
The speech performance was double-good!!!

Thanks  ;D

GOOD JOB! Thank you

 :D Wow thanks everyone!

I grin from ear to ear everytime I hear such lovely comments! If any of you could use the voting scoring thingy on the games page, that'd be extra nice!

What did everyone think of the music?
Title: Re: Secrets
Post by: CosmoQueen on 24 Sep 2006, 01:27
I did enopy the music! And I really liked the part when he was at his brother's place and he bent down. I love the little details like that!

I'll make sure to go on the page to vote and leave a review ;D.

Lovely game, but too short for my taste.
Looking forward to your next game.
Make it a little bit longer.

Omg i hate it when people cop characters out of your games
Title: Re: Secrets
Post by: ManicMatt on 15 Oct 2006, 23:03
I have no idea what you are trying to insinuate, but you bumped my game back onto the first page so I'm happy.

EDIT: After some thought, I'm either being accused of copying a character, which is what i first thought, or it's a typo with the word 'cop' and they're having a laugh...?

I have no idea what he means either, but if it helps, a "cop out" is sort of a rather cowardly, less troublesome and not really rewarding way of solving a problem. Example - so you've made a big effing plot twist, your player character is in a huge mess, and there's simply no way to solve it because the game's running VERY long as it is. Cop-out: cliffhanger ending (Simon 2, anyone?). The "It was all a dream" ending can also be seen as a cop-out.
Title: Re: Secrets
Post by: ManicMatt on 16 Oct 2006, 11:00
Oh, yeah, I hate cop outs like those!

Hey, what are YOU insinuating Rui??!  ;)
Title: Re: Secrets
Post by: Rui 'Trovatore' Pires on 16 Oct 2006, 11:14
Nothing, I hope, I haven't played the game yet. ::) Playing 'em all alphabetically, and only got up to 'D' yet.

I guess you're assuming that everyone here is an idiot but the edit on my post is made a month before you posted this. I have no idea what this is supposed to mean either.

Nice job.  I thought the graphics were pretty good.  I was really impressed with the puzzles.  I hate it when the puzzles are so far out and difficult that it destroys the flow of the game and story.  I thought it was near perfect for AGS...even if the plot was a little  :o at the end.    ;D
