Yes, this is very beautiful :).

Is the Sierra-style interface a final decision? I fear those cursors will be too large with the tiny details like you have on the screenshots.

Thank you all kindly.

> Is the Sierra-style interface a final decision?

Not even game title is final at this stage.
I try to make hotspot shapes a little larger
so it's easier to click/interact with objects.
It's all rather spontaneous thing, quite unexpected
for me because I'm doing graphic design mostly, never done
any programming but I'm trying my best to learn
and maybe understand it one day. :)

This is all basicly re-themed default GUI and
I'm kinda inventing/changing things "in the moment".

So far it's all going well, thanks to forum and
video tutorials (many people here have been great
help for me and inspiration to do this and try
to conquer the AGS engine).

> Lovecraft

Indeed, HPL is a major influence on me so you
can expect some kind of mythos in game.
As you can see:



Which is somehow ironic, now that I think of it,
cause I got hooked on HPL eaons ago by
accident, reading walkthrough in a computer
magazine to a Shadow Of The Comet game
(all walkthrough writen in a form of journal/HPL story).

Ah, one more thing.
The game music & sounds I'm expecting soon
will be recorded by my very dear friend from
Ghosts Of Breslau (also HPL freak):

beautiful gfx indeed. And horror is always cool, especially with good music, and after listening to Ghosts Of Breslau this should be good. Keep it up!

I'll second what selmiak has said, the graphics are stunning and it only gets better after listening to some of that music. Great stuff.

Brilliant. It reminds me a bit of The Last Door (but with higher resolution).
