Couple of things to report in this post:

A review of Case 3 is up at UHFgood's site.

Second, last weekend I made some real progress on one section of the game, and am hoping to finish up that section this weekend.  In the meantime, here is a preview of said section (excuse the programmer art, but drawing the background is on my list of things to do this weekend.)

Uhfgood has reviewed Case 2.  As with Case 1, he has been very kind.

Hooray, a new animation, especially of interest to those people who enjoyed all the walking in the teaser:


Does this mean it's an action/adventure?  Nah...

Uhfgood has reviewed Case 1.  He is planning on reviewing each game in the series, so give it a read!

Today I received two sets of lines for two characters done by their respective voice actors. 

Both were completely different in terms of the characters' natures and dispositions: one was a comedic role and the other a high-energy dramatic role.

Both are absolutely amazing.

I'm extremely excited to hear how this game is going to wind up sounding.

It seems the Grundislav Games forum is dead alive.  Somebody didn't pay the bill  The bill seems to have been paid.  I didn't buy the domain name so I can't renew it.  It seems for now, this will have to be the primary location for discussion.  Disregard this post!

Hey, what do you know? I made good on my previous statement.  Enjoy!

Depending on how productive I am, there should be something interesting on this site within the next couple of days. 

What could it possibly be?!

Stay tuned.

In the previous entry, several people noted that I haven't written in a while, and they are right.  I apologize for the lack of updates, but I haven't really had much to say lately, because I haven't worked on the game too much recently.  Mainly the reason is because I got a new full-time job, which doesn't leave me with as much time to work on Case 8 as I would like.  However, I am doing my best to get back into it and get things done.

Having said that, I guess it's time for a status report, of sorts:

The game is, in my estimation, about 30% complete.  I don't know when it will be finished, but I'm very much aiming to have it out this year.  Realistically, it will probably be anywhere in the range of Fall/Winter.  Someone on my forums guessed Christmas 2009, and I think that would be as appropriate a date as any, so I'm going to do my best to shoot for that goal. 

So I'm also going to do my best to update this journal more often.  Of course, for that I need input from you, the readers.  What do you want to know?  Do you prefer a screenshot here or there, maybe a teaser image?  A full report on what I coded a specific day?  Voice/music clips when we get there?  Obviously I don't want to spoil anything, but I promise I will give you guys what you want as much as I'm able to.

After completing this background, I realized it's the only one in the game with cheerful colors and a blue sky...and it isn't even for a playable section!
