The art looks amazing, the artist is doing great things with that limited palette! Really interested in the premise as well, this sounds like it'll be really good.

Just a brief little note here to share a little progress.  I've started a devlog over at itch.io which I will try to keep updated at least irregularly so you can track the progress over there especially if you're already using it.  Plus, if you follow me I can follow you back and check out what you're up to!  I've been bust enough behind the scenes trying to figure everything out without having a ton of tangible progress to share here but rest assured the code is getting messier and messier.  Messy with fun!

And as a bonus for reading this new post, I'll treat you to some new character animations.  Everybody is dying to meet Gina "Subpoena" Valentine.  She'll be your new best friend!  Oh, and don't forget Sandy.  You'll have an adventure with her, too.  You meet her at the track when you get involved in the life and times of the racehorse Batty Bill.

That's a really nice artstyle you've got going there.
Keep up the good work.  :-D

Just a little mockup to let everyone know that work is still progressing at a somewhat reasonable pace.  Just because I can't hang out with friends in a bar doesn't mean that you can't in the world of Kola Queen!  Everyday after you make your rounds convincing reputable sodie dealers to carry your new product you will have a chance to unwind at the bar with your friends and the people who populate the Quad Cities before going home and starting fresh the next day with more Cola Galore: America's hottest new carob flavored soda with twice the flavor at only half the calories.

It's been a couple of months since I updated here so I thought I would give a little taste of what's coming to those of you who are interested parties.

I've decided it might be best to release to the game as a series so that people can actually play the game while I work on all of it which means that your progress will in fact track through the games.  Various decisions you make will factor into the happenings of the future games in the series as well as the friendships you have made and fostered as well.  There will be a day/night cycle to where you drive the plot and distribute that sweet, sweet soda pop during the day and have the night off to do whatever you please.  Driving your relationships will be a core feature.  Just like real life you won't be able to build relationships with everyone; you'll have to make some choices.

I'm also introducing what I hope is another first for point-and-click adventure games: an innovative hangover system.  Sure, you can hang out with your friends all night at the bar deepening your relationships but you will pay for it tomorrow!  Maybe it doesn't do much.  Maybe somebody will notice.  It'll be fun.  Just like a hangover.

Anyway, I'm sure I'm over-promising here but trying to tie all of these weird systems together has been what you might call fun.  No, scratch that, it's tedium.  Tedium is what I'm thinking of. 

At any rate, I hope you'll have fun when you play it this summer.

If there is one thing I know for sure, it is that there is no better fun like a good hangover.

It is interesting to see that this game will feature some RPGish elements like stats (friendship and hangover). If these affect the gameplay, I am guessing the game may have high replay value.

Good luck with the project : )

Just a quick update to let you know that I'm still working on the game just about every day in my spare time.  It's starting to take shape and I can reasonably assert that it will indeed be ready this summer.  I signed up for the AGS Forum almost exactly a year ago so I guess I missed that deadline but I've learned a lot and I think Kola Queen will be the better for it.  You can also follow me on Twitter www.twitter.com/PlayKolaQueen

Here's some new art.  The bar you hold dear in your heart and hang out in every night after work.

I just love the graffiti!  (laugh) And that sign makes me wonder what "the incident" is, just like the intention probably is. Great stuff!

I feel so identified with this statement!
I like this project btw, it 'transmits' a nice vibe, keep up the good work!
