This whole game looks very impressive, and that train shot is especially dope! How did you make that, it feels like maybe a 3D scene (or at least one with some 3D elements) that has then been 2Dified?

Nope! It's all drawn by hand, and animated frame by frame :)

The music for the main menu is pretty much done, so I get to show some of my own work for a change :) Next step is finding an actual human violinist to play the violin parts!

Impressive intro scene, love the four masks (assuming these are masks)

Unless Kastchey misspelled his own name on the forums, there's a typo in the credits. But who knows, could be intentional.

If it was intentional, it wouldn't have been the first time  (roll)

Loving every update. I'm really looking forward to the game!

You're obviously putting a lot of effort and attention to detail into this and I think it will pay off well  :)

Of course it wasn't intentional! I was using an, erm, archaic transcription from Cyrillic and got them mixed up, rookie mistake, ahem. (fixed)

Thank you and I hope so! I'm having the WORST case of writer's block right now and everything I come up with feels like trash, so I appreciate the encouragement :)

For a while, I also misread your name for:
Spoiler: ShowHide


Gorgeous title screen. Because the train goes so fast, I was expecting a more energetic song. Not that I dislike it  :)

A sad song accompanying an unstoppable train hurling through a bleak winter landscape. What a great and sadly beautiful way to make a contract with the player before the game has even started!  (nod)

This I get, it's easy to make a typo. But... why would someone misspell your nickname on purpose? Just to be annoying?

It was a tough decision! I tried a lot of different stuff, some more energetic, some more sinister, but ultimately I wanted the music to contrast with the visuals, rather than reinforce them. I think it makes for a more interesting mood :)

Quite fitting for the train imagery, I seem to have derailed the thread. Sorry.
