    2. Creator Charles DeYoe on September 17, 2013

      Indeed I will! Expect an update later today or tomorrow! :D

    3. Creator Duffadash on September 17, 2013

      Will you be sending out Desura keys now that UQ is available there?

    4. Creator Eric on May 11, 2013

      I enjoyed playing Unemployment Quest :)

      Am so sorry I forgot to leave feedback. =< I got my copy around August last year. Thank you so much for it mister DeYoe! I love it! =D

      My copy reached Germany today in mint condition -> http://twitter.com/Bagdadsoftware/status/232849817376813056/photo/1 . No problems with customs either. Thanks.

      I just found this turn based RPG on Kickstarter: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/vitaumbra/vita-umbra-the-life-of-shadows/posts It's called Vita Umbra - The Life of Shadows. It looks like a pretty interesting game, despite it's extremely low fundraising goal. The 2 songs for the game that have been posted so far, are shockingly good.

      Thanks! Just received the phyiscal copy! Looks Awesome and the game is awesome!

    9. Creator David Sherman on August 1, 2012

      Got my hard copy, woot! Thank you again for creating something epic out of nothing! I wish you the best!

    10. Creator gunnergreg on July 29, 2012

      tanx Sir DeYoe the game rocks and I'm glad to get a physical copy as well for my collection I wish you the best for the future

    11. Creator Jamesac68 on July 24, 2012

      Got my physical copy in the mail yesterday. I'll probably never open it, and only play the downloaded version, but I'm still pleased at the turnaround. I've been backing a small pile of Kickstarters and this is the second (after Order of the Stick) to deliver the physical goods. From completion on 5/20 to delivery 7/23, that's some good speed there. :)

    12. Creator Lance on June 29, 2012

      unemployment quest was a short and very fun game. A new funded zombie-survival RPG is closing in six days and could really use your support. CHECK out DEAD STATE and help fund another GREAT game!!

    13. Creator SinoSamba <(-'.'-)> on June 18, 2012

      Just finished the game and thought it was very fun. Also I would back a Kickstarter for "Underemployment Quest" in a heartbeat. You could make it a series :)

    14. Creator Colin Vesper on June 18, 2012

      I can verify that this runs with Vine on a mac.

    15. Creator Richard Wojtaszak on June 17, 2012

      Just completed the game verry nice with all the fights leading right up to the end boss fight verry good story line, only things that annoyed me a little where that you cant get to the boss area with out a ship so you cant make your way via land and when you wanted to recover from magic like HP theres no indication of how much it regenerates but all in all a verry good game, can not wait to play the woes of underemployment game thanks for a fun game.

    16. Creator Sean L. on June 16, 2012

      Very fun game, and also about 2 1/2 to 3 hours to beat. Buying potions helped in the end... lol I also thought Underemployment quest might be fun.... Maybe for the next project?

    17. Creator Eric on June 16, 2012

      Hey Great game! Just sat through the whole game beat it in about 2.2hours! It was good I look forward to Underemploment quest! (I know it was a joke but would still be fun)

      Thanks for the game!
      ~Eric R.

    18. Creator Eric St. Pierre on June 16, 2012

      Great game. It speaks to me.

    19. Creator Brian Watzig on June 16, 2012

      i forgot to save and was beaten by the internet applications, lol

    20. Creator Tom Plaskon on June 16, 2012

      I finished the game last night, in one continuous shot. Great job. The creative is very inventive. I was very addicted. It's probably for the best that it wasn't too long :). I was impressed with the quality of everything. I second the other poster below that I would love to back another of your projects.

    21. Creator Josh Soutar on June 16, 2012

      Am sitting down and playing the game now ... drinking a beer ... while the kids nap ... You have done a fantastic job ... Anything that you do in the future ... I would love to contribute ....

    22. Creator Charles DeYoe on June 15, 2012

      The best way to contact me is by going down to the "project by" box underneath all the rewards and clicking on "send message."

    23. Creator Richard Wojtaszak on June 15, 2012

      Charles DeYoe < whats the email address we can use to contact you please ?

    24. Creator William Goff on June 15, 2012

      Wow, I donated to Indie game the movie 2 years ago and still haven't received my copy in the mail. Great turnaround, I hope to see your next project up soon!

    25. Creator Vandigeth on June 15, 2012

      Well that was fun even if it was short :) good work, just finished.

      I think 'Work from home?' got the biggest laugh out of me.

    26. Creator Nick Bitterling on June 15, 2012

      Damn, just got owned terribly by uncertain future xD

    27. Creator Vandigeth on June 15, 2012

      I find what I call 'slave to conformity island' + 'winning smile' = easy xp/$ lol.

    28. Creator Vandigeth on June 15, 2012

      I'm really enjoying the game! Can't wait to get the CD copy :)

    29. Creator Devon Rampe on June 15, 2012

      This game is fun! I just need to figure out how to make the windowed screen larger, or how to stop the full screen from stretching on my widescreen monitor...

    30. Creator Josh on June 15, 2012

      I'm really enjoying the game =D

    31. Creator Max Malm on June 15, 2012

      Downloaded it and tried it for a few minutes (have to go to work now). It looks REALLY good.

    32. Creator Charles DeYoe on June 15, 2012

      All right! I've sent everyone who's backed the project at the $5 or higher level a download link for the game. Now I'm going to bed and will be updating the website so that people can buy the game in the morning! I'll be posting a big update as well!

      Glad you're liking it so far! (As for the dad blocking the doorway, lot of the characters have random movements, so that's possible a possible annoyance. They'll move away eventually though.)

    33. Creator Jaime R. Maldonado on June 15, 2012

      So far so good! Loving my first attack skill. "Firm Handshake?" Brilliant.

      Only bug/bother was the my father got himself stuck on the exit of my house so I couldn't leave unless I went back upstairs and went back down.

    34. Creator SinoSamba <(-'.'-)> on June 15, 2012

      Thank you for the game! And right on time. The first finished game I get from Kickstarter =D

    35. Creator Charles DeYoe on June 14, 2012

      Thanks for the heads up! (It's fixed.)

    36. Creator Brian Watzig on June 14, 2012

      on the website you talk about a game called Cult: Awakening, I just wanted to let you know that the address you have for it is missiong the end part of it (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/dhagar/cult-awakening-of-the-old-ones) you were missing --> -of-the-old-ones

    37. Creator Brian Watzig on June 13, 2012

      thanks.

    38. Creator Charles DeYoe on June 13, 2012

      Yep! The game is totally DRM free.

    39. Creator Brian Watzig on June 13, 2012

      oh question, for the digital copy can i install it on multiple computers?? reason I ask is i would put it on my desktop and my laptop. (then again i could just install it on a thumb drive)

    40. Creator Brian Watzig on June 13, 2012

      2 days to go :D

    41. Creator Brian Watzig on June 10, 2012

      the anticipation is killing me, lol

    42. Creator Charles DeYoe on June 10, 2012

      I would, but it's up to Valve, not me! I'll just be sending backers a download link for the final game.

    43. Creator Gilbert Palau on June 10, 2012

      Are you going to make the game available through Steam?

    44. Creator Charles DeYoe on June 7, 2012

      I'll be asking for addresses once I actually have the CDs (so I'll be sure they're all accurate, in case anyone ends up moving).

    45. Creator John Falcon on June 7, 2012

      Are you sending out a survey to get the address for mailings of the hardcopy?

    46. Creator blankdoor on June 7, 2012

      I'm so excited this is finally happening; all I can say is thank you! I just managed to find a job myself after being unemployed for 8 months, so I can relate to the subject matter, as I've battled both self doubt and depression in that time. I'm just glad that there is a game that could help other people understand those feelings!

      ~Ross

    47. Creator Charles DeYoe on June 3, 2012

      So close to the final version!
      I'm hoping to order CDs this week. It's exciting!

    48. Creator LifesContradict on June 3, 2012

      getting closer... :D

    49. Creator Jason Clark on May 24, 2012

      Sweet! Another reason to find my Windows Xbox controller in the box of miscellaneous tech stuff.

    50. Creator Charles DeYoe on May 24, 2012

      Jason Clark: Sorry I missed your previous comment before now!
      There will be controller support, in addition to keyboard controls.
