Happy birthday to me. Have that new demo. It's on here, and on my Itch.io page. The only difference is that the one here has my custom install/setup application, and the Itch version has a .Net-based launcher.

I like the new cartoon panels and the new content in general. But that optional ending scene... it's too random whether you discover how to get it or not. You state directly somewhere that "this is not a Sierra game". That puzzle has Sierra written all over it. Plus you have already given the player a choice between different levels of raunchiness. Making the player do further work in order to see that scene seems unfair.

Edit: Actually, I liked the old intro pic better (with Ilira in a jacuzzi with a bottle of champagne).

I'll see what I can do about discovering the "you can exit the car" part. I can totally adjust the title screen to have the crap on the ledge more visible, including the bottle -- I've learned a thing or two about lighting in the iRay renderer since then.

And I'll take the "Sierra written all over it" as a compliment ;)

Over the weekend I put up a poll on Twitter, like I've done before, asking which of my projects I should exclusively focus on this week. The Dating Pool won.

So I took my sketches of the new two-screen apartment and got to work. I've been tweeting the process but I figured not everybody here's on Twitter, or if they are they don't necessarily follow me, so let me just show my work so far.

I think this needs more crazy shit on the walls, if only to mask the scars on the right wall where I cheated the tops of the door and closet in post.

(Edit: did the living room, updated the bath and bedroom.)

Did a bunch of videos, of increasing production quality, about these rooms. You might've seen them on my Twitter, but just because I can here they are again.





and the final take for today:
a complete and sudden drop in video production effort just barely above the first.
