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

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?

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 aren´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

 :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?

« Reply #18 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.

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.

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
