Same here, I've been doing a lot of thinking and that's clearly not good for me!
Anyway, downloading and wishing to have a good time playing it!

Wow, what a great game! Now I know how the colour cyan really smell like!
Great jokes and retro feel, just like playing LSL again and with those midi sounds getting the full attention from my nervous system! It's like a Pavlov thing!

I did accept the radio job because my 3rd gig didn't go that well, are there any different endings?


Loved playing it, it's a great quest and I am following this team around now very closely.

Hey thanks for playing and glad you liked it. There are slightly different ending depending on taking radio gig or continuing being a struggling performer. The radio ending is perhaps the darkest time line.

Hey askalarium.

Playing your game and so far so good... :)
I did found however a little bug.

Spoiler: ShowHide

In his flat, when we awakens for a long night out with the guys, the landlord comes to the door demanding rent by tomorrow! All fine there, only problem is, I went and looked inside the freezer and then returned to the room, the landlord scene repeated. :/ Seems like you forgot to do a "run once" or set a bool check on the scene...


EDIT:

And now I found a serious bug! :(

Spoiler: ShowHide

I clicked to interact with what appeared to be a save game point thingy, by the convenience store.
It opened what looks like the Save Game GUI window, and now I can't get out of it! Mouse Clicks do nothing, and ESC key doesn't close the GUI either! :( How do I get out of this window so I can continue playing? Or do I need to restart the game!? :(

Post by: askalarium on 28 Jun 2014, 18:46
Thanks for the feed back. Not sure why the saved game bit locks up like that it could be the sliding door sound stuck in a loop. I'll take it out of the game it's a stupid joke anyway. I will also fix that landlord reappearance.

If it helps for debuging, I~m playing without sounds (disabled via winsetup).
Title: Re: Comedy Quest
Post by: askalarium on 28 Jun 2014, 19:21
I just did a quick run through and I think I've fixed all the problems. Uploading again now. Sorry about this.

Hey.

Been playing again (needed to restart, since I hadn't made a save before - have now).
But I've just stumble into another bug... :o

Spoiler: ShowHide

I was in the scene with the landlord again, after that I saved my game (see I learned my lesson ;) ), then looked at the cat on top of the fridge, and after he said his lines the game crashed!

in "GlobalScript.asc", line 1091
Error: AnimateChracter: invalid loop number specified.
Title: Re: Comedy Quest
Post by: askalarium on 08 Jul 2014, 19:23
again sorry about this. I'll try and fix it now.
Title: Re: Comedy Quest
Post by: Cassiebsg on 08 Jul 2014, 19:45
Well just finished it. :)
Cool little game! (http://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/forums/Smileys/AGS/smiley16_nodding.gif)
BTW, as long as you fiddling in it, you might consider changing the end screens to a mouse click instead of a timer. I had no time to read the text. :( Only read 1 to 2 lines in each of the 3-4 screens.

Thanks for sticking with it. I'll fix that too.

I'm all about the game so far.  Definitely has a crummy comedy club vibe off the bat.  Research and Development must have been a blast ha. Bravo!:grin:

Hey, just finished the game. There were some really great moments, and I love the look and everything about the audio. Nice experience overall. The flyers drove me a bit crazy, but that's more my fault than anybody else's. Also, I really appreciated the quality of the voice acting. Decent voice work is so rare in indie games.
I'll definitely be looking forward to future projects of yours.

Well... I enjoyed the first part, but the game crashed randomly....

That's the same bug I found early on. Just don't look at the cat on top of the fridge (if that was what you were doing). ;)

just downloaded a few days ago and played through the first two clubs, loving the game.  i also wake up after george carlin dream and am just stuck in the apartment with nothing to do but check 0 friend requests, read status updates, or take quizzes. 

i tried playing up to it a few different times from earlier on wondering if i missed something, but i just get stuck after carlin on the clouds.  either way, great design and voice work, i'll try a few other playthroughs or check for updates, would love to play the rest.  cheers!

I've been told a few times about the land lord not showing up. I am trying my best to fix that. I have no idea why this happens to some people and not others. I'll try to fix it as soon as possible. I will also look into that game crash. Again sorry about this.

A few bugs:

Spoiler: ShowHide
If you look at the urinal in the last section, he says it's an ATM.

If you click the ice on the bartender, talking to her still gives the option of giving her the ice again.

Even if you pay for the ice, the ending credits still show the "Hope he pays for the ice" line (First time I didn't pay but I saved it to see what would happen if I did :P)

I must admit, I haven't played this (because I get too much open mic comedy in real life...) but you've had some coverage from the AV club, and my comedian friends have started sharing it on facebook:
