Hello everyone, I hope you're all having a great weekend!
We hit 500 backers!
Another landmark passed and with plenty of time to hit a few more :)
Thank you so much for your continued support - it means a lot and I really couldn't do this without all of you!
If you haven't already, please try the demo and share it with any folks that you think might like it.
Mable Out In The Real World
The past few days have seen a few more mentions of Mable, which will hopefully get her in front of more eyes. There have been a few Let's Plays of the demo on youTube, my particular favourite being this one from Tealgamemaster:
There are a few other awesome ones too, but I'll let you find those yourself rather than stuff them all into this update! It's really exciting to see people play the demo and really get what I'm trying to do - and I'll never get tired of the sound of people enjoying the game so much :)
Like I said before, if you haven't already, give the demo a try!
Mable & The Wood has also been featured in the VGChartz top 5 Kickstarter Games of April!
It's great to see the game starting to get some of the attention that I think it deserves, and hopefully we'll be seeing a little more of that in the next few days as the campaign draws to a close.
The other games in the VGChartz article all look amazing too, so it's great to be in their company! In fact, there are 2 games mentioned in that article that I've backed myself and REALLY want to get funded (so go and check them out):
Luna is a point and click adventure, and it features a beautiful hand drawn art style that uses traditional frame by frame animation. I mean, just look at that image above!
The environments also look really beautiful, as you can see below.
For me, point and click andventures live and die on the appeal of the world that you're exploring and the story itself, and Luna certainly looks like it's going to deliver on these fronts!
If adventure games are your thing, be sure to check out the campaign!
With this one, I was pretty much sold from the title.
The developers have taken inspiration from the Lucas Arts era point and click adventures, mixing the unique humour from those games with a Lovecraftian world. How can I not be sold on that?
It's the strength of the writing that really carries this. They've really captures the feel of those Lucas Arts games, and I found myself smirking all the way through the pitch video, as well as the demo - which is available to download from the project page.
Be sure to check out their Kickstarter page, the video is worth watching even if you're not an adventure games fan!
That's All Folks!
It looks like we're on track to make it with room to spare, but I'm excited to see what kind of rollercoaster ride the next few days are going to bring!
Please remember to share the project and like the update, and if you liked the demo then please leave a comment and rate it on the itch.io page!
Until next time, thanks for your support!
