Cassie makes a good point. Extra options are always a bonus. :)

Thanks for your input all :) We're going to go with B for the time being and if we have the time we will add an option to switch between the two styles. Adding the option is a lot more than just creating the GUI switch, sadly; We'd have to test both systems extensively to ensure they don't cause any bugs that can only be replicated with one style of mouseover (it also involves redesigning the way our inventory windows and subtitled dialogue work, which could cause other conflicts. Best to settle with the majority vote I think, also my personal preference ;)

It's on my Wishlist now.  Looks fantastic!  The new trailer is great, but the voice was a little hard to hear over the music.  Still got me very excited about the game, though!

So many kind words from you all! We really appreciate the support  :) I'm glad to hear the Discworld vibes are coming through and thank you to those who have wishlisted over on Steam  ;-D

A release date announcement is coming soon! We recently sent out the preview build to a bunch of press folk and have had some lovely responses so far.

This one came in yesterday and it seems the writer really got what we were going for: https://vulturehound.co.uk/2019/03/carry-on-camelot-guard-duty-pc-preview/

You can find a roundup of some others over on our Steam page: https://steamcommunity.com/games/872750/announcements/detail/1803034103869859122

So much awesomeness going on in that gif! That guy being terrible at darts is a nice touch as well!

Damn I need to get you on the Silver Spook podcast again in the near future before release of Guard Duty!

That's wonderful news Chicky.  Really excited!   :grin:

So how will the DRM-free release be distributed?  GOG?  Direct Download  Itch.io?  Humble Bundle?
