    Well howdy there teaser~ protip - listen with headphones. Apologies on the video quality, but it's more or less an audio-centric preview anyway. Enjoy!

    Proves how sound engineering can bring your game to a better level. Great job! Also, where is the violin music in the end from?

    It's great, and again very Bioshock-like :)

    Very, very cool teaser, good sir. Still very excited about your project here. And yes your audio use is very good. Did you record the 'currently offline. please wait for assistance' line with someone? or did you find that sound clip somewhere and edit it? And  I'm glad your using a lot of your own custom music for this game is well, I've always thought your music was well-done.

    @Gravija - thanks! Yeah, Bioshock has always kinda been an inspiration for this. It's more leaning towards a mix of Silent Hill & Amnesia now, mind you.

    @Kingmaker - appreciate it. The voice clip was actually recorded from this site - http://www2.research.att.com/~ttsweb/tts/demo.php - I imported the audio clip into FL and mucked about it with it to give it a more realistic, automated feel.

    @seita - I've been toying with the idea of going commercial as there're a lot of incentives to do so. I'm not really sure how to start with that mind you, and there are also a lot of considerations when it comes to the art being used. Basically it's at the stage of 'would I want to apply x amount of money to buy commercial licenses for a project that could succeed financially but could also flop?' But I guess that's business, lols.

    Yeah that's definitely one of those things haha. Message me if you're interested in bringing it commercially!

    Some new prison maps, and an example of objects you can pick up and look at in your document gallery :) (I'm having a lot of fun rendering these in photoshop~)

    These maps are all part of the solitary confinement wing in the prison :)

    This is looking more exciting every time I see it. Sooo looking forward to this. I think going commercial on this is a good idea. It's looks like you've put alot more effort into this then most commercial games I've seen. I for one would pay for this. It's up to you though. Keep up the good work.

    It's certainly something I'm considering, but it's not without its pitfalls either. I'm using a lot of resources from other sources that would be pretty difficult to get commercial licenses for (i.e BGS and SEs from a few games, things like that) - and a few real songs too. I think my best route right now is to get a demo out first and take it from there.

    And hey, I am planning on buying some lovely mics soon so I could probably rerecord all the ambient sounds and whatnot. If anything that'd actually be nicer given that they're all mine~ (Akira Yamaoka - or someone - actually recorded every footstep sound in Silent Hill, how cool is that?)

    It's a tile in Luna's Zombie pack. I'd heavily suggest you buy it, because my lord it is awesome.

    Thanks. Btw, my dropbox bandwidth limit has been reached, so that's why a lot of images are currently missing right now. Should be functioning again soon.

    I like it. I'm hoping it's not a spoiler... I like the symbol as well... it's very much like the classic—just realized I can't spell Ouroboros (is that right?)—although it still has it's own look.

    Looking forward to a demo! Any news on that?

    Nah you come across that near the beginning of the game, no spoilers. And yeah, it's an ouroboros, which is a REEEEALLY intense symbol with a lot of imagery that a particular line of choices throughout the game reflect.

    Demo is kinda there, ish. It really depends how much content I want and how polished I want it to be - i.e voice acting and stuff. Still a lot of sprite work I need to get around to affording too, haha.

    These are all part of the opening sequence of the game, which concludes with this new song. I really want to show it off but it's an awesome scene, and I don't want to spoil it~ I AM AIMING FOR A DEMO IN THE NEXT MONTH OR SO.
