Haha that's great!  My original design was a nice big flat screen monitor but I thought to myself, "yeah but we make old-school games... should be on an old-school monitor!"

I considered finding a way to make it flicker like it was operating at 85hz under a florescent bulb but thought that might be pushing it ;)

Thanks, Frodo!  :D

I see from your MyFace page that you're a fan of Kiss Meets The Phantom of the Park, Dr. Giggles, and General Hospital. You are a complicated woman.  ;)

Hehe.  A complicated woman, with complicated tastes.   :P
To complicate matters, General Hospital isn't shown in UK ( :(), so I have to watch it on YouTube.   :=

(Sorry for the double-post, I coudn't add the quote to my last post.  Can someone combine posts please?)

Unfortunately, when I click the "understood! buy the bundle!"-button, nothing happens.

I'm getting the same.  Nothing happens when I click on 'Understood.  Buy the bundle.'

Is it possible to fix this?  Not everyone who goes to the Bake Sale site will come from here - a lot of people will see links displayed elsewhere (other sites, facebook etc).  If they click on the Buy link, and nothing happens, they won't know what to do.   :(


EDIT:  Bought my bundle through this link - https://secure.bmtmicro.com/servlets/Orders.ShoppingCart?CID=6694&PRODUCTID=66940013
Thanks Tabata.   ;D

Hmm. Odd. This sounds like a job for Darth Mandarb! I must sent up the Darth Signal. And hopefully, when he wakes up, he'll see it and tell us what's going on.

Anyhoo, thanks for buying a bundle, Frodo. I hope you like it. I hear 9 months in goes will with General Hospital. In Search of the Sweets Tin is much more in the vein of Phantom of the Park though. ;)

So far what I've played, and finished.

Fragment - FANTASTIC
Rail - Fantastic
Zombie Attack - Needs more cowbell! (it's only drawback :PPPPPPP)
No more military army stuff. I'm alive and back.

Fragment - FANTASTIC

:D

So far I've completed the following (not counting the 3 I'd already played through before):

The Rail - stylish, and I got the best ending first :D
Red Volition - oh man, this was totally great! Some of those skills took a while to figure out too, I thought it was well balanced.
Escape the Barn - especially enjoyed all the little animations in this one!
Entrapment - moody and tense, and some of the puzzles kept me going for a while. Nice that you can choose an ending!
RAM Ghost - got a little addicted to this and kept doing the "one more upgrade" thing. Impressive that this was coded in such a short time!

So far, so good! :D

Man, I've kept my leather pants on this whole time.

It's not that I don't want to take them off... just that I can't  :D

BTW, the Red Volition manual is messed up, looking for folders and files that aren't there etc. Probably worth having a look at!

I'm just going down the list in alphabetical order.  So far I've only played:

'9 Months In' - which is a brilliant little mystery, but I only got 81/100 and a weird ending.  Can't wait to play it again soon and aim for 100 and see if I get more explanation.

'Abner the Amazing' - Which is hilarious!  I wished it could have been a longer adventure where you collect the colours one by one.  Maybe something to think about for 'Abner the Deluxe' ;)

And I'm underway with 'Barn Runner' - A lot of talking so far, but the dialogue is very funny, so that's not a problem.

I'm technically not supposed to be playing games as I have 2 exams next week, but I'll comment on each game as and when I play them.  I'm looking forward to trying them all, but the one I'm looking forward to most is 'Red Volition'  :D

Same here, but no time to do it again right now      
Same here, as well, and I also had around 80-ish points and got a strange, abrupt ending. I think I understand what the officer was trying to say to her, though. Heh.. irony.

I still haven't unlocked the 100% ending in 9 Months In either. But on the other hand, I did unlock the perfect ending in Barn Runner, so I've got that going for me.  ;)

Thanks for the support everyone. I can tell you guys that the gossip coming from the kitchen is that we raised a very nice amount of money on our first day and sales continue to be strong. The average donation is about 4 dollars or so and we're rapidly closing in on the two thousand dollar mark.  :D

To be honest, I was hoping we would raise maybe three hundred dollars (five hundred if we were very lucky), and we surpassed that mark in the first few hours! I can't tell you how pleased I am.

On behalf of all the bakers, I want to thank you guys for showing us such great support. You guys are wonderful.  :-*

Thank you guys for playing (and hopefully enjoying) the game!  :D
I hope you'll be able to reach the complete ending eventually, who knows, maybe it will be less weird if you do..  ;)

@Spectreincarnate Maybe you understand, but you won't know for sure, now, would you?
Though I think you do understand, and if you do then it's indeed a wonderful example of irony... 

As for the rest of the bake sale, I'm enjoying the games immensely! I'll probably respond in each of the threads when they come up (if they do come up).
