Looks fantastic!  Really want to play this!    :cheesy:

Any plans for a DRM-free release, like the other games?
PLEASE don't make steam the only place to get this.   :sad:

Thanks, all! I expect the plan is to get it on as many places as possible, so hopefully DRM-free will happen...

ohwowthisisunexpectedandnice! :D

what engine are you using?

also that one line in the trailer (or gameplay recording), the intro, it is white over bright yellow, very hard to read. (@3:42 in the video)

Thanks again, everyone!

@selmiak - it's in Unity. You're right about that line, but it's trailer-specific so it won't cause any issues in-game. (It reads "an INTERACTIVE NARRATIVE EXPERIENCE", which is just a silly joke about the perennial 'should we call them games' discussion!)

To excuse the bump, I'll announce that we recorded a second episode of the podcast, which you should be able to find via the same link as above :)
