2 new Captain Disaster projects in the works...

... before you get excited about a new point and click adventure game featuring the gormless captain (come on admit it, two people on this planet actually were moderately excited for a moment) this isn't about a new game.  Currently my circumstances don't really allow me much time or head space for gamedev.

However, I'm not idle and the CD universe is in need of expansion.  Therefore I have 2 projects currently on the go:

The Captain Disaster Revised Short Story Audiobooks - I'm taking the original 11 short stories that started the whole thing off, reworking them slightly to better fit the audiobook format, and then recording them.  

Here's a quick sample:

Also I have started working on the novelisation of Captain Disaster: Death Has A Million Stomping Boots.  I have some screenshots to prove it (though it must be noted that it is very early days with this project...):

I was going to make the game free for just Star Wars Day, but I decided to make it free for the whole week.  If you've always wanted to play it but been too skint, go ahead and download it.

Dark Side finally gets an "official" rating on the AGS boards!

​Rated 3 /5 (the AGS ratings board are notoriously difficult to please! :-D Can't really argue with anything they say though anyway):

What can I say about Captain Disaster in the Dark Side of the Moon:  Zany? Funny?....Typical CaptainD style that we have come to know and love... 
This early episode, although quite old now and not as strong as the later stuff is still enjoyable enough to play. Overall I thought the game showed promise at the time of what was/is to come. A monster has been set lose.

Ratings from players:

The Loot Gaming Interview - Part 2

Part Two of our epic interview with The Loot Gaming has now been posted.  Check it out!

(I mean yes, 37 questions may not appear "epic" to you, but with two people giving considered answers to each one, it felt pretty epic completing it!)

New video - by SIP

SIP (SmallIndiePromo) has done a video of the first part of the game and seems to have enjoyed it immensely. :-)

An Interview So Large, They Had To Split It In Two!

TheBitPriest and myself were reviewed by gaming website The Loot Gaming.  They sent us so many thoughtful questions that the resulting interview has had to be separated into two parts!  Here is Part One.

Captain Disaster now also available via BMT Micro

You can also order Captain Disaster in: Death Has A Million Stomping Boots via long-time indie-friendly distributor BMT Micro using this link.  The price is fixed at £6.99 / €7.99 / $8.99 (so depending on the exchange rate at the time it might be a better price than some other vendors).

Of course what this also means is that, if you have a BMT Micro affiliate account, you can earn 30% of any sale you make of our game.  Which is worth knowing, surely? ;-)

New comment on the AGS games page

Saw it this morning :-)

Fun game with a lot of humor. The puzzles are great. Couldn't stop playing until I finished it.

You can see all the comments here.  If you want to.
