Flow Problem released


I had been working on a sort of follow-up to Snow Problem, but this time based on water dynamics rather than snow. It's about as finished as I'm going to get it, with real-life and devving Captain Disaster and the Two Worlds of Riskara I don't really have time to dedicate to it, so I've decided to release it for free. It's minimalistic but I think puzzle game fans should get a bit of a kick out of working out how to complete all the levels. 

Other pros: 

- very small download size!

- it's FREE (unless you really, really want to give me money for it, in which case I guess I won't stop you :-p)

Captain Disaster 3 demo nominated in the AGS Awards!

The demo for Captain Disaster and the Two Worlds of Riskara has been nominated in - guess - the Best Demo category of the AGS Awards 2023. Obviously we are very happy about this, and would love it if you voted for us on the (again, guess...) voting page.

However, whilst this makes me very happy, I would like to focus on something else instead. My artist for this game, Lorenzo, has been nominated in almost every category at this awards for his game Stranger in Utopia (available for free on Itch) - a first-person, futuristic detective mystery that was made for a game jam. I'd really love to see him win an award this time (not just for Captain Disaster, although that would also be cool) since he's been nominated multiple times in the last few years for other excellent games, but never been a winner.

Captain Disaster and the Two Worlds of Riskara demo - Steam Deck compatibility confirmed

Since I don't own one myself I have to rely on reports from other people to know that this and the previous Captain Disaster games are compatible with the Steam Deck. One of the test team for Riskara has kindly created a video showing the demo being played on it.

Apparently the Steam Deck did show a message saying that the game might not be playable, so I don't really know what that's about, but it then worked. I'm not sure if the warning message is in relation to certain redistributables possibly not being available.

Anyway enough waffle from me, see the video below! With thanks to Ramon.

Captain Disaster and the Two Worlds of Riskara was featured in Iago Lake's report "The 50 most promising Graphic Adventures of 2024". (Native language Spanish but Google does a decent job of translating it.)

The game was also featured in Adventure Game Hotspot's video "Upcoming Adventure Games 2024...And Beyond!"
