Just watched the play through of the demo. Looks great! You probably hate being asked this, but how long do you think before you launch it?

Glad you enjoyed the play through! Heh, I don't mind being asked when I'll be launching it! Optimistically I'd say late this year. I've planned the game in 7-8 sections (down from 10, I compressed a couple of the days together!). Section 2 is being beta tested right now, and I've started on section 3!

You had me at "parser". And "Bequest". That's some fancy nostalgia bonus right there, and I'll patiently wait until all parts are released, and then play them, in order, while wearing a monocle. This looks juicy!

I will admit to buying a loupe that is as similar to the in-game inventory item as I could find!  :grin:

Amazing Twitch streamer and Youtuber SkippyGranolaSA played through The Crimson Diamond demo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GmAtmdgPn9w&t=256s, we chat the whole time and it's very nice.

I was a finalist in the Ubisoft Toronto Indie Series! http://toronto.ubisoft.com/2019/03/finalists-ubisoft-indie-series/ I didn't win, but it was a great learning experience and I met lots of wonderful people!

He's 6'7", I think! I'm 5'0" so that certainly doesn't help matters  (laugh)

5'0?! 6'7?! The dad joke part of my brain is in overdrive. Did you have to call him to talk? Did he warn you of inclement weather? Did you take a nap in his pocket?

Sorry! Had to let it out.  :-D
