While you're waiting...

... well, we're also waiting for potential publisher feedback, but we're also building the rest of Verse One.  Here's Clod examining the 4 basic directional views of the newest character to be added to the game (hint... he's NOT a troll! :-D)

These trolls are nearly ready to bust out!

11th test build played, and I think it's our Release Candidate - the Pitch Demo is about to set sale!  In the meantime, here are our trolls getting restless, they want to be let loose on the world...

Finially, we have a rating!

Yes folks, the plea in my last post for people to give the game a rating on the AGS games page have been heeded - finally we've had 5 people rate us, which is enough to give an average:

It could go up or down from here of course, but all the same these are very pleasing ratings.  On GameJolt our average raging is 4.6/5, which equates to 92%.  Very, very happy that people enjoyed the demo so much (was worried it would be too short to have much impact on people) - I think it's safe to say that if you liked the demo, you will like the finished game even more.

Unfortunately it didn't get up on the big screen, as Andrea only had one slot and quite understandably wanted to showcase his own pet project, "Tales".  (If you haven't already, do yourself a huge favour and download the demo, it's awesome - and getting some of the highest ratings I've ever seen on the AGS games page!)   He was able to showcase Troll Song at his display PC though, and said that everyone loved it (maybe just as well we're planning an Italian translation at some stage!).

In other news testing continues, we're adding new features to the GUI, almost all the voicing is done, and we've had yet another 5-star rating on GameJolt, where the Troll Song: Verse One Demo has just reached 700 downloads.  (Slightly annoying though that on the AGS Games Page for the Troll Song demo, we still haven't had 5 people rate the game so there is still no average rating!  If any AGS forum members see this and fancy rating the game...)

Nearly ready to roll...

Just got v8 of our pitch demo test build, and it all looks and sounds fantastic.  I'm so pleased with how this game is turning out, Jim and Andrea have put in an amazing shift to make the trolls really live.  (My 3 year-old daughter pesters me to put "the troll game" on nowadays as well :-D)  Once the pitch demo is complete, the rest of Verse One shouldn't take too long to finish.
