Hey this a quick plug for my upcoming game: It Sleeps Below the Haar, that builds on a lot of the ideas that I was working with on The Black Iris.
It Sleeps... will ofcourse be available on itch.io on release, but until then it would be a huge help if you could have a look at the game and wishlist on Steam if it seems like your thing
Hi! I really enjoyed this review, it really is an honour that one of your students chose the game to review. I would love to chat with your class, give me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can chat more.
The majority of the donations made from The Black Iris have now been donated. There are still some trickling in, so I will make another donation in a few weeks. I am overwhelmed by the generousity of the itch community, it has been so far beyond my expections. I tweeted some receipts etc. as evidence of the payments over here https://twitter.com/arboreta_games/status/1373699827259822084?s=20
I just wanted to post a quick update. Firstly, thanks so much to everyone who has played the game and had kind things to say. It has just reached 3.5k downloads which is orders of magnitude more than I could have hoped. Secondly, to all of you who have donated money, I am so grateful, it will make a huge difference in my community, where unfortunately foodshares are being needed a lot more because of the pandemic.
On that note, I will be updating here and on Twitter with receipts etc. as and when I transfer donations to West Dunbartonshire Foodshare. With itch.io, for each purchase made of a game, the creator must wait 7 days before a payout can be requested and then there is usually another 7+ days until the creator receives the money, so in order to try and make things easier, I will probably wait a few weeks before requesting the first payout so that I can group as many of the purchases together as possible. I thought this was worth mentioning since there will be some time between me requesting a payout and it actually being donated.
Hello! I will most probably put it on steam at some point in the future. I'm not currently planning on doing a linux or mac port, just because the numbers compared to windows users make it hard to justify the resources for testing on other platforms and since it's just me that is a big time investment, but who knows in the future.
hey thanks for the comment! Yeah I need to rethink the display size next time. It's set the way it is just now because the UI would be all over the place otherwise, but you are right 16:9 would be better. Most of the time it scales appropriately but occaisionally runs into trouble
