      Hi Team Misery Dev.,
      A quick question and it may not be possible for reasons that I can't foresee. Could you start a separate thread for those of us who have done multiple outcomes to discuss our choices? I would not want to give spoilers to any who would unknowingly read them, but those of us who have played to multiple outcomes it might be interesting to discuss how we felt about the results of our choices. I think if we give a warning that we will be discussing plot elements that those who want this to be a strictly solo experience or to experience more outcomes first can avoid it.
      Also have you considered doing another Kickstarter to raise more funds. You could offer Act 1 as an incentive to any pledges that are confirmed to go through and those of us who have enjoyed playing can give honest non-spoiler reviews. As a tier for those of us already in the game maybe a soft cover book or download discussing what went into the creation of some of the storylines from Act 1 or a novelization of one or more scenarios.
      Just a couple of thoughts, but mostly thanks again for an interesting and thought provoking game. Vince

      Just playing through the game now, so far so good.
      Its a long read but worth it me thinks theres a nice feel about it late at night where my room is quiet so i can get wrapped up in the game. The inventory system needs to be used more due to me only being to use the gps so far in the game. Good start all the same.

      Finished my first playthrough yesterday and I really like it! Great job!
      However I never even saw one single character? I met a couple of them, but I never saw their face / character (as shown in the kickstarter campaign)? Is that intentional?
      And I found it a little bit confusing - the only choices I can make are the choices in the text? Why have an inventory system then if I can't use it and only look at it? So far the only item I could "use" is the GPS - that however, is kind of useless and only shows the map?
      Am I missing something here?

      Sorry this transfer has been deleted and is not available anymore. At an hour long I guess I'm not really missing much.

    9. Misery Dev. Ltd. 4-time creator on June 26

      No worries, we might have phrased this badly, sorry.
      We just spend several hours to test the pre-release build and reply to this properly.
      If you rush through one story/playthrough without watching the intro, without reading the text, without inspecting your inventory, withouth using your GPS, and without reflecting on your personality analysis, it will still take about 30 min.
      Also, we are not entirely sure that you can even do such math on a non-linear novel with multiple endings. But you will be able to test all of this yourself tomorrow when we deliver Act 1 to you.
      You will have our replies to all comments and questions raised in our next update.
      Woo, so excited about this day :)

      Was wondering the same - I don't mind having a 1 hour game that can be replayed 3 times. But since you've stated that the first act ended up being a lot longer I really am wondering: you really started off with act 1 being 20 minutes long or at least planned it? What happened to the loads of story text-pages?

      john walker on June 23

      Congratulations are in order. And thanks for your dedication and endurance. I'm uncertain about your statement regarding game length. You say 3 playthroughs can be done in 3 hours? And that Act 1 is 3 times longer than planned. Does that mean the original plan was for a 20 minute game? I thought you had hundreds of pages of story text. How is it possible that the game is then so short?

    13. Misery Dev. Ltd. 4-time creator on February 16, 2017

      @john
      Thank you so much for posting. The short answer is yes, it is still a 3 parter.
      We will give our indepth response to your comments and questions in the next update.

      Complex moral and ethical interdependencies and "economies" sound great. Hope they provide a diverse spektrum outcomes. Nice that you're updating us regularly. Of course a release date would be nicer. Hope that's not too far off. By the way, is the project still a three parter? Will you be releasing all parts simultaneously?

    15. Misery Dev. Ltd. 4-time creator on January 19, 2017

      @Dylyan
      Agreed, it's been way too long since our last update and we will post a meaty update within days to let you know how it goes.

      The last update was in September - I dont mind that the game is not finished yet but I would very much like to have another update? Even if its only a short one regarding the state of the game / development?
      Happy new year btw!

      This is hard to say since we are no longer working on a budget.
      But progress is made on a weekly basis, and we soldier on to finish the game.

      Still hard at work when possible, and making good progress.
      Programming is also refined considerably, making a smoother and better game.
      A new status update will be published in a near future.

      We are not proud of the delay, but we can look back with satisfaction on the ways we've dealt with the obstacles and challenges during development. The project Updates will tell you the story. The funds are depleted, but we soldier on, and we are closer to a finished game than ever before.
