KyriakosCH, your video is intriguing. I'm now curious to see the full game :smiley:

The video brings up so many questions.
Like why would anyone use notebook paper with a typewriter or printer? And why would they put the paper in sideways?

Indeed. And that isn't random, but a core part of the plot ^_^

Estimated time of release: 2-3 days :)

I can upload it to the database here, right? (it will also be at Itch, and hopefully later on at Steam)

I'm out, haven't had time as I hoped, and the only time I started I ended up with a "home" instead of a small town...  (roll)
There are those who believe that life here began out there...

Finished!

This is the Way



A dark allegory. You have invested  a lot, possibly everything, in getting here - and problems still arise. Even more troublesome is the insinuation: that you do not actually realize what it is you are going after...

Hi Slasher, I'm not sure if it's a bug or if it's something I'm not doing correctly.

I've reached the red planet but I can't land on it.

Thanks

I will go play your game now too, Slasher :)

Edit: unfortunately I wasn't able to start the game, I am using Win7 (maybe that created an issue?)

Here is the message I got:

Since others played the game fine, obviously it is something on my end, though I haven't been able to figure out what...
But trying different resolutions/modes didn't solve the issue.

When will the contest happen? Haven't been part of this before  :-D

The easiest way for you to get a picture of how this works, would be to take a look at the threads for the May and April contests. (Last month had only one entry, so no voting was necessary.)

Thanks... I will pm some mod to try and get help to run your own. Up to now I didn't have issues with AGS games so I don't know what this is :(

Yay ^_^ Although you managed to misspell my name :P

I want to ask: does Slasher and myself abstain from the voting? (I mean it isn't really nice to vote for one's own game, and a bit bizarre to vote for the other person's in a 1 vs 1  := )
