Really chuffed with a new review that game that was posted today :
https://xgeeks.co.uk/2018/10/04/captain-disaster-in-death-has-a-million-stomping-boots-review/ ;-D

"For gamers passionate about point and click games, Captain Disaster is a shining example of the genre. The array of unique and interesting puzzles is perfectly blended with quirky humour, pop culture references and skilled storytelling. It’s everything a point and click game should be and more!"

Wow what a blast from the past!  I really hope you enjoy the game ;-D  TheBitPriest and myself managed to keep stomping along until we got it finished.

I've released details of a sale I'm going to do in December.  But... it's a little different from previous sales.  It's interactive... kind of.  The more targets I hit (in terms of followers, downloads, etc) the bigger discount I'll give in the sale.

Full details here.

Nothing like hearing a lead character with a local accent (ish). The Saleswoman's jokes about Brummie are spot-on. Ya'm done good there, mate.

Looking forward to keep on playing, arr.

I can only imagine what my attempt at Brummie sounds like to you!  :grin:  The Saleswoman at least IS an authentic Brummie.  Hope you enjoy the game. Please leave a rating on Itch if you do!  ;)

I am enjoying it so far - on the second part of the game. The second act's main puzzle thread of

Spoiler: ShowHide
Having to fool the hand sensor is a pretty cool quest, and ties into the main character's characterisation very well.

Finished it - I really, really enjoyed this. Found it very funny, sparks of originality in some of the puzzles and I was sad when I finished it. Good job!

I was going to make the game free for just Star Wars day, but I decided to make it free for the whole week.  If you've always wanted to play it but been too skint, go ahead and download it.
