Heyo!

Been a little bit. Unfortunately still no luck with the publishers I've tried. The game is almost complete though, which is cool, even though it currently probably doesn't have the launch support to go anywhere when I release it, I'm still trying hard to change that though. Whatever the case, I hope the people who do play it find it great! It'd actually be pretty cool, I think, to have a small community of people who really like it. That way I could do, like, giveaways where I can mail out hand made sculptures of the game's characters or something to fans.

Anyway, I've been doing a lot of polishing tweaks (changing things from just functional to actually looking good) and cutting some things that aren't really worth investing the time into. I changed the look of the main character Jim, since the old model I made like a year and a half ago and I've gotten much better at the art since then. But I'm worried this new one might look too cute, like to the point where it's a little generic looking? Let me know what you think. The new one is on the right:




also been finishing up the game's intro...


(gif capture got messed up at the end of that last one, whoops!)

You may have seen it on twitter, but I made this promo art too, which I think came out nice...


Yup, well, that's it for now. I guess I'll be back with more stuff soon. Thanks!
Ya know, I never realised he was an old dude with a moustache until now!

I like the new version, he's perfect.

So have you considered itch.io or something like that?

This looks so whacky and insane! Love the art direction, and the characters seems great. Fingers crossed for you getting a decent publisher deal! In the mean time keep your head up and polish, polish, polish!

Thanks guys!

@JobLeonard : you mean posting on the forums on itch.io? or releasing a demo or something? I thought about releasing a small playable build. Maybe I still will, It just still has a lot of bugs I need to get rid of. probably not a bad idea though, even if it tends to turn people away, can't hurt to get some feedback.

This looks hilarious, very charming. I think a demo will really help to draw some attention to your game. There are some who thinks a demo might end up hurting sales but I think the potential attention far outweighs any negatives (if any?? I really don't think a demo will hurt sales).

Keep at it! Your game definitely stands out. You just need to get it in front of more people.

From what I understand from other devs is that it has the opposite effect: it gets people on board Smiley

Late reply on the new look for Jim: I'm not sure I'm sold. The original one looks more young, naive, and starry-eyed, which makes for a funny story of disillusionment. The new one looks like an older, sadder anti-hero, and I think that changes the vibe dramatically. Idk.
