On the AGS forums we've been talking about having a ratings drive - getting more ratings to games on the database, especially those who don't have enough for a combined rating (5 or more votes). Typically a game can get hundreds, maybe even thousands of downloads without even getting a single rating - work is being done to make the process more visible, and try to encourage more people to rate (personally I'd been downloading and playing AGS games for years before I realised and started rating them).
Anyway, the point of all that is - the Troll Song Demo still doesn't have a combined rating, so if you're an AGS forum member (or willing to create an account quickly in order to rate), I'd be really grateful if you could visit the AGS games page for the Troll Song Demo and leave a rating, perhaps even a comment as well, letting us know what you thought of it. (I know it's a very short demo, but people seemed to like it!)
|Yeah... look, I can't really rate it myself can I? I may be a little biased!! :-D|

The Troll Song demo was featured in showcase video, only I didn't realise that until today. Apart from the fact that he managed to go an inhumanly long time before working out how to get out of the cage, he does a nice job of summarising the demo and seemed to enjoy it a lot.
If you haven't played the demo yet, you can download it here.
(Incidentally, those colours in the screen cap on the video frame above are completely out, don't worry that's not what the game looks like!)

A nice review of the demo has appeared on AdventureGamers.com. Among the things they said about the demo are:
"Clod himself is a bulky character with a prominent eyebrow, coloured entirely in a rock-like grey. He is smoothly animated, with his dangling limbs and shambling walk befitting a troll. The game is fully voiced to a good standard and features an orchestral soundtrack as well."
"Whilst this debut episode is short, it serves as a good introduction to the character of Clod and the humorous tone that is also reminiscent of early LucasArts games."
"Clever use of the varied actions, as well as a limited inventory, will see Clod reach freedom, with a final piece of concept art promising more in an ongoing story."

Well, we're up to 239 downloads for the Troll Song: Verse One demo - and I think it'll only be going up in dribs and drabs from now on.
The 3 cave locations are completely designed now (aside from changes we might decide to make), and I have a good idea in my head about what the rest of the "verse" will be like. For both Tino and myself, a lot depends on how much time we need to devote to other projects - especially The Journey of Iesir - and I don't think we'll know for sure until another couple of months is up at least. I remain optimistic that we can get the first verse in full released before the end of this year... but we shall see!

Just one more download will take is to 100 downloads of the Troll Song: Verse One Demo this week. We've been vying all week with Maniac Mansion Deluxe for top slot on the AGS downloads, looks like we've been beaten into second place in the end but still happy that the demo has been getting some exposure.

We're still working on the full Verse One of course, which will probably feature 6 locations and take the storyline from the imprisonment of Clod and the other trolls, through their escape from the mountain which is their prison and into an abandoned goblin camp, and end up at a village that Clod has been mysteriously drawn to without knowing why.
