First, the screenshots look amazing.
Second, congratulations on getting a publisher.
Third, now that I see it, I can't unsee it... the poor shop guy does looks like he could use a sit down when no one else is in the shop. ;-D

keep up the good work

Nice work as usual.

Kinda like a gloomier Risée du Monde.

Hey guys! The game is progressing nicely, here's a fresh screenshot for y'all!
Spoiler: ShowHide


That suit-of-armour looking robot body has exactly the same build and posture as the shopkeeper. Does he wear it?

Isn't the desk a bit short compared to the man?

BTW is that wall-e on the wall :D

Great background!

I do feel that the metallic robots etc. in the background could do with a bit more shiny highlights though, maybe in the colour of the light. They look a bit flat to me, almost like they are drawn on the wall.

Gorgeous graphics! Kathy Rain is on my pc, hopefully one day I'll actually play it haha.

I am slowly catching up with my backlog of games.

Resigning from your job helps.

Thanks for these lovely comments and all the constructive feedback!

We have heard your pleas, and Sture the shopkeeper will be given a magnificent stool in the next iteration of the background. I myself advocated for a throne, but the rest of the team thought that was a bit much :) We'll also have a look at some of the scaling and lighting issues.

In other news, we could also use a few more long term beta testers. If you would like to share the WOAM journey with us, give me a holler at contact [at] clifftopgames , com! (no forum PM please). Cheers!

I would love to beta test, but if it's Steam beta testing only I won't be able to join in the journey.

Yes, you'd need Steam.

Yup, sadly, Steam is required, as is creating a Slack account for communicating with the other team members.

Hi all! We're not dead, albeit the heat wave this summer nearly did us in :X

I just wanted to let you know that I've created a Clifftop Games discord, where you can discuss Whispers of a Machine and other titles by us, and get exclusive early info before anyone else! http://discord.gg/aeYc64N

We have reached a critical milestone, as Whispers of a Machine is finally playable from beginning to end! :)

We have also teamed up with the legendary Ivan Ulyanov (known from countless WEG titles) for the character portraits!

Haha, you are all much too lovely! Excited to be involved in this game, I have a vague suspicion it's going to be a good one! ;)

I've only worked with him on almost every project of mine since 2014. :)
