Wrath of the TV-spiders

I'm sure my daytime employers would be thrilled to know just how seriously I took the company values seminar.

People have complained that spiders have eight-legs. On the other hand, televisions tend to have zero legs. This chap has a mean-average.

Neeeown dakka dakka dakka

Well, it looks like people are getting Nancy - thank you! It certainly helps the next project along.

Speaking of "next project", Johnny Hurricane and the Pirates of the Third Reich has had its development reactivated. It's not gone back up on the website yet, as the way it's *going* to look is considerably different to how it was in the past. Just keep your eyes peeled, and it'll be back shortly. Suffice to say, a chap called Worth Dayley is joining in for the characters...

The Perfidious Petrol Station...

Ladies and gentlementlementlemen, ready to go, it's:

Blimey, finally sorted. I've been soliciting press attention all morning, and putting it up on AGS. I dread to look at the reviews that come out, but that's probably just me being paranoid (hint: I'm always paranoid).

Previous buyers of the game as part of the Summerbatch will be receiving a discount code from Mods (Screen7) at some stage, and anyone else who feels possessed to buy it because my voodoo magic is working can acquire it through here at FireFlower games, along with a host of other independent games.

My most gracious thanks to anyone buying it (you're awesome, handsome and delicious), and remember: you're helping to fund a continuing cycle of games production!

Creeping ever closer...manual: Done. Screenshots: Done. Trailer video: Done.

After a bit of correspondence with FireFlower games, with whom I plan on distributing Nancy, it seems that I *will* be in a position to offer a discount to those who purchased the game the first time around as part of the Summerbatch. I'll ask Mods (Screen7) to e-mail everyone who got it, and prove that I'm not too evil.

I look forward to the day when I can upgrade from "make believe" to "cargo cult" when it comes to this kind of thing.

Where in blazes has all this background noise suddenly come from? All of my recordings are coming out disastrously, so I've put out an alert for one more voice actor to play the role of Mr Red. Hopefully, he can get it done by the end of the week, in time for projected release.

On the happier side, in an effort to spread my insidious internet influence, The Rail is now available on GameJolt, to see about getting more people playing. SIX PEOPLE SO FAR WOO.

Much to my immense relief, the sound-editing part of Nancy the Happy Whore and the Perfidious Petrol Station has been completely concluded. My part, anyway - just waiting for a few more files from external sources, but at least there's no more noise-removal left over for Nancy herself. Now I just have to make sure everyone's the same volume, and ensure that the German translation will work with all this new-fangled speech.

Miiiight ditch the Latin translation if I'm feeling lazy. After all, I don't feel that many people got quite the enriching experience they might have from it!

Still, I'm on schedule, and it looks like the game will be finished by the end of the week, or thereabouts. Rejoice!
