I really dig the minimalistic style and the pixel animations on the second screenshot. Best of luck with the project. :D

Ah! Great to see that those backgrounds were "real"! This looks great :D
Best of luck for this project!

If I may ask, what are you using to make graphics?

AWESOME!!! I was hoping that you weren't just experimenting with styles and that there was an actual game behind it all!

I want to play it yesterday...So get it out ASAP or you're gonna have a WAAAAAAHmegeddon on your hands from me! (laugh)

I already love it.

I was following the thread about the art.

I found it very good!

Go on this way please!

This is looking cool. the miniature size is also interesting. Have you ever considered using one of the custom res AGS builts and squeezing it into a smaller custom res size? Some 16:9 mini HD stuff... keep it up!

I'd love to but I can't find that build on the forum? ???

Because these things take time! It's mostly a prototype for a future and larger game I'm planning though. So you may be seeing more of it soon. :-D


Made two new backgrounds today, but you're going to have to play the game to see them. Finally got a two-point perspective in there, so that's a feature.

why no completed games announcement thread?
Just 'completed' it by saying I have no idea. I thought I could further investigate when choosing this option but it was all over after this, that was a letdown as my 'conclusion' didn't change anything at all. But maybe this is also intended as nothing matters in this dark future world. All in all very linear and no puzzles at all. gfx are okayish, the music is cool.

Oh great! Downloading!

EDIT: playing right now and i find it marvellous.
Great mood and atmossphere. and excellent pixel art. Essential but still so cool.

Only one thing I suggest: i launched it as it is, without setupping: the res istoo much for the laptop i'm using right now. I'd need a 3x zoom.. so my suggestion is to make the default launch in full screen or compile it with the last version of ags and use the "max neib. filter".
This way it'll be suitable for all players, even if they dunno how to manage ags setup ^^

anyhow, thanks. great game!
Going on playing.

Is this given up? Cause besides atmosphere and a "surprise" factor it kind of wraps up a bit too fast. But it's really good, even though it lasts for like 6 minutes.
No more military army stuff. I'm alive and back.
