Making really good progress...
I'm pleased to report that we have been making really good progress on finishing up Act I in the last week. To be honest we could probably have got it finished by now if we're taken some short cuts, but we really want to make sure that the game is complete, enjoyable, and we're not skimping on extra little touches if we think they will genuinely add to the game. On the other hand, we're having to be honest with one or two scenes that maybe didn't add much and cut them out. It's all shaping up very nicely.
In the meantime, since it will be quite a while before Captain Disaster in Death Has a Million Stomping Boots will be available (we're hoping for a December 2014 release), why not try out our shorter, freeware game, Captain Disaster in: The Dark Side of the Moon? If you like comedy sci-fi and particularly if you're a Pink Floyd fan, you should hopefully have fun playing it. Disappointed that less then 500 people have played it so far, and that we have less than 5 votes on the AGS Games Page so there is no average vote yet - I mean, it's not an amazing game, but it should give adventure gamers an hour or two of fun at least.
In other news, the AGS Bake Sale 2 is here - 4 games for Pay-What-You-Want available until the end of May 2014. I just reviewed "Blue Lobe, Inc.", one of the games in it for which I voiced 3 characters - doing the voicing was fun and the game is a blast. (The sale is to raise money to help keep the AGS servers going.)
