Ben Jordan Case 4 *UPDATE 1/19/05*
« 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.

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.  ;)

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.  ;)

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!

I'm amazed at your ability to produce quality games. Congratulations.

BTW, I love that Goya picture above the door.
It's not the size of the dog in the fight. It's the size of the fight in the dog.
