Thanks :) and yes will have definitely a custom soundtrack. I realized how silly was not to do that already for the past games (well had budget problems too :lol:). I also plan to include a bonus content like I did for Heileen 3 with lots of unused sketches and stuff!

Steampunk sounds good (very underused in RPGs and video games in general) but I'd prefer Planet Stronghold gameplay.

You mean theme/setting? because gameplay really could be the same in a steampunk or sci-fi game :)

Planet Stronghold gameplay, meaning having access to a lot of skills and using different skills to solve certain situations (rather than combat the entire time).

Ah I see, well I haven't spoken with the steampunk writer about this, maybe we can add something like that in that game too :)

are those choices enough? :lol:
Though to be honest this is a special case where you'll get a bonus to one of the starting skills by picking a choice to solve one of the early situations. But you can get an idea of how the rest of the game will be under this regard. Don't worry, the non-combat skills will be used in the game! 8)

OMG! :lol: reminds me of one of the gamebook I used to play... the CYOA ones (Choose Your Own Adventure). This is f***ing cool, can't wait for this game to be out!

I'm okay with that as a preliminary choice, but...

Heh. It'd be kinda silly if EVERY choice in the game went like that.

Haha indeed. It would take 10 years to write if all choices were like this! :mrgreen: This is the first choice, so the number of options matches the number of skills. In the other points of the game there will be alternatives to fighting, but like the first game you'll have 2-3 choices, not 10 !! :lol:

Hmm Lucille doesn't bring really good news, doesn't she? :lol:
I love the start of the game, the sense of impending doom, I really like it :) Today commissioned the full soundtrack which will be of ten unique songs, in a mix of styles like orchestral rock, ambient, etc 8)
