August 2014 Update
Hey folks, brief update here! Things are progressing awesomely with the game. There's still some fix up work to be done with regards to the sprite art and some of the paths, but as I'm playing through it, I've got this terrifyingly goofy smile on my face.
First and most importantly, I'm smiling because I'm playing this thing that's consumed my life for approximately 2 years, and despite being tired of poor ol' Mark coming out to his roommates for the 4589th time, the game, as a whole, feels fun.
That's right. The F word rears its head! I'll reiterate: I take your fun seriously and I hope this will be something that'll entertain you from start to finish.
Secondly, I'm also grinning because Coming Out On Top isn't close to what I envisioned when I started this project. It's actually so. much. better. because of your both your feedback and support. So THANK YOU dearly for all you've done to push COOT from good to hopefully great.
So what's happening now? At the end of August, forum members will receive the next build. Once I get their feedback, I'll release a another build to ALL backers after making more changes and fixing any bugs.
This will be the last build before the game comes out. I'm pretty excited. The drawings from Doubleleaf are SO FREAKING GOOD and truly worth viewing as standalone illustrations. And I've been doing my best to make the game a memorable experience. :)
See you in a month, folks!
And may you have the best August ever.
