Update #6

Unemployment Quest is FINISHED!

All right!  As of today, Unemployment Quest is officially in its final version.  I've mailed the master copy to the disc replication company and I'll have the game available to download for backers (or to buy for non-backers) next week!

This game has been a huge emotional investment for me and it will definitely provide a couple hours of totally solid gameplay.  (I hope everyone takes the time to examine objects while they're playing!)  Despite having a serious theme and some inspiration from depressing situations, I think players will have a lot of fun and hopefully find amusement at some of the humor I've sprinkled liberally throughout.

I look forward to hearing what everyone thinks of the final product!

I also posted a new MP3 to the web site, it's the "boat version" of the world map song and you can download it here:

Thanks again to all the backers!  It really feels great to see how this little independent project could gain such support!
