I'm there! I swear :D Uploading in 10 minutes! :D (I'll edit this post, of course)

Here it is!

A NIGHT THAT WOULDN'T END


Far in the North, where the night may last for months, a researcher is left alone with his boredom and with an important research to complete.


(Is it possible to apply some little fixes after the deadline? For instance: the width and placement of a text overlay?)

Oh wow! A hattrick of games to play!!!

CONGRATULATIONS to all on making it in time! It's a crazy thing to attempt which makes it very satisfying to get it finished within the time limit!

I had tons of fun playtesting Until I Have You so I will leave that for last. Can't wait to see the finished product though of course!

So: All The Way Down first I think...

Two things, Bedpost and Tin Can. Jesus Christ I haven't pixel hunted like that in ages. The story was flowing well and the tension was riveting except for those two 10 minute interludes of nothing. More music would have helped too.
Also, "That won't help." Playing even when you use an inventory item on nothing. I missed the candle by a few pixels twice and he said his catchphrase so I thought I couldn't use it there. The scrolling up title takes too long and it makes you miss hotspots very easily.
Other than that it was lovely. Great art, great effects.

Bedpost and Tin Can.
... I thought "bed pole" even before I noticed a hotstop called "bed pole"...
As for the tin can, yes, I hadn't noticed it either... my mouse was already going to the opposite side of the screen when accidentally got past over it and I said "tin...? wait, there was something different there!".

Three marvelous games. Great start to the year... Or ending to last year, however you look at it.

Until I have you. The controls are terribly hard, but it's too gorgeous not to persevere, and I think I'm getting better. With a bit of tweaking to the learning curve, this could be one of the classic non-adventure AGS games :-D

A Night That Wouldn't End. Very nice game. The puzzles were solid and the story was cute. I could have played more. Well done LTD :-D

All The Way Down. Really superb team effort and a great advert for Latency. Couple of pixel hunts (for me it was the tin can and the brake lever), but nothing a few more beta sessions couldn't have ironed out. Nice Lovecraftian atmosphere, great graphics, delicious voice acting, and interesting product placement for Spar :-D
