Aye, sure - because of the people I know and my real-space political views gender related issues are something that jumps out at me where it wouldn't for other people I think - it doesn't impact the game in general :)

That's a great credits screen, I approve!

Still going back and forth on whether I want to do an art pass before launching Alpha publicly... I'd prefer to get feedback and see if the concept has any potential, but some reactions lead me to believe the current placeholder art might be too much off a turn off for many people to even give it a proper chance :/ Don't wanna miss an opportunity for an interesting game due to temporary art.


So in the meantime, did a few art test/mockups for the street scene. Thoughts?

Finished playing it, gotta say the SOs use of language changes a huge amount. It's a little disconcerting. Other than that, great game dude :)


EDIT: and left a lengthy survey response, hope it helps :)

Once you realize what a joke everything is, being the Comedian is the only thing that makes sense.

The "realistic" and "blade runner" graphics options both look quite atmospheric :)

By the way, I am looking for an artist to overhaul the artstyle if anyone is interested :)

Alas, my ability at art is... limited, it's fair to say :P

Long time no updated, haven't had luck finding an artist so decided to give it my own effort, drawing from some other references.


New dinner scene - thoughts?








And here's a take with some DOF





Feedback much appreciated :)

It's good art :) Though arguably it feels a bit "dinner at a restaurant" and perhaps should be more "home-ish" in feel? Like wearing what appears to be a pearl necklace for an everyday dinner at home may be excessive! I think the more blurred/faded background is probably the better one.

Tweaked the lady clothes, making her bit less like Wilma :P

I like the style :) I think the lady still needs some clothing tweaks, just the borders between different sections of clothing look a bit off somehow compared to how the fabric would actually hang, but it's an improvement in clothing style definitely. The guy looks good, though I'd maybe age him a little, he looks a bit boyish/teenage - perhaps a slight stubble and a bit of added breadth in the shoulders?

Not sure the clothes suit the daughter, they look too straight laced for the character. Could also add some nail polish. And umm... How come they have the mona lisa? Is this dude a modern Peruggia? :D
