ahhh thanks!! massive fan of all your games :D

so incredibly good

Hey! Thanks for getting in touch. Glad you liked the game!

It sounds like that was probably an issue with the "letterbox" effect in the game - I'll look into it and try to find a fix :)

Hey! Thanks for doing the video - I really enjoyed it :)

And yeah if you didn't notice anything different in explore mode then it means you found everything on the story-mode playthrough!

My bad - thanks for letting me know :)

Hey! Sorry for the slow reply - the Paypal option should be working now! Let me know if you have any issues :)

Ah, whoops! Thanks for letting me know :D

Ah okay - thanks for letting me know! Will try to track it down :)

Thanks! Really glad you enjoyed it :D

And yeah if I end up making a sequel, I'll definitely add some more controls to the corkboard. All great ideas!

Oh, and about the strings getting stuck, was that in the main game or in the explore mode? Or both? Either way I'll try to track down the bug :)

Hey! I'm actually not sure if I still have the project files for this game... But I'll have a look through my game design backups, and if I can find it I'll put together a quick Catalina version :)

Thanks :D

That'd be awesome! As far as I remember, the inspiration for the symbol was some writing by Alain Badiou (which used the Ø symbol pretty heavily). The symbol in the game was meant to be a more rune-like version of that :)

Hi everyone!

I've done my best to design the game so there's always some new lead to follow. But if you get completely stuck, you can use this walkthrough on Steam to point yourself in the right direction.

It will definitely spoil some of the fun of finding new leads, so please don't use it unless you have to :)

Thanks so much for the shoutout! I really loved Tonight We Riot :)

Solidarity!

So glad you liked it!

'like speaking intimately with an old friend' is maybe my favourite ever description of the game :)

Hey! I've taken down the demo because I'm getting pretty close to releasing the finished product. So many things have been improved that the demo doesn't really represent the final game anymore...

But if you're interested in testing the beta, chuck me an email at colestia3@gmail.com and I can send through the latest build :)

Hey! Yeah I took down the demo because a lot's changed and it's not a really good representation of the final product anymore... If you chuck me an email at colestia3@gmail.com I can just send you through the demo build again? Or if you're interested in beta testing the latest version I could send that through instead?

Thanks! And yeah it's made in Unity :)

Those are excellent!! Thanks for sharing :)

Thanks so much! I really wanted to avoid that sort of hero/saviour narrative, where the player comes in and single-handedly ends capitalism... The revolution will be collective, or it won't be a revolution!

Hey! Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts, and thanks for all the kind words! I'm really glad that you got that sense of having to slow down and sink your teeth into the mystery - I tried a lot of different things to get that feeling from the investigation mechanics!

And those are all excellent suggestions! I really like the idea of red herrings especially - I've got a few ideas for unexpected things you could find in the archive boxes, and setting those up as red herrings could work very well.

Oh, and on your big suggestion, I've been thinking a lot about ways to structure the overall project. My current plan is to flesh out the Nugan Hand conspiracy and release that as one game - then if it goes well enough I can work on more installments about other related conspiracies!

Anyway, thanks again! And I hope you like the final product :)

Hey! Really happy to hear you liked the demo!

Thanks a lot for all the feedback (and for letting me know about the bug). I like the idea of making the string transparent when zoomed in - I definitely want people going overboard with the twine!

Also I'm really glad that the mood came across! I'm definitely looking to add more details to the office, although I'm still figuring out what to prioritise...

Anyway, thanks again for all the kind words!

Hmmm, that's another really excellent point. I definitely want there to be that sense of slowly learning how to navigate the environment. I'll try repositioning that second staircase, and maybe also adding some small details to help with navigation - like a trash can, or a plant, or a stain in the carpet. Stuff which subtly makes the environment a bit less symmetrical. 

But yeah, thanks again for another great bit of feedback!

Thanks so much for writing this!

I'm really glad you liked the way I stripped things back to dates-names-locations. Making that experience interesting was a major goal of the game! Oh, and the phone / outside world should play a bigger part in the final version!

Excellent writing and a brilliant setting!!!

Can't wait for the full version :D

Hey! Really sorry to hear that. Would you be able to send me an email at colestia3@gmail.com and we can either hopefully sort the issue or organise a refund?

Glad you liked :) And thanks for letting us know about the typo!

Hi there! Really sorry to hear about the graphics issues. Is there any chance you could drop me an email at colestia3@gmail.com? I can think of a couple of fixes I can send through :)

And again, really sorry about the bugs...

Hey! Glad you're liking it :D

Later on in the game you get access to the ability to light liquor bottles on fire, and you can use them to destroy the water cannons! But at this point, you should be able to get past the riot police by throwing stuff at them :)

Hope that helps!

Pretty similar, yeah! Although it's more action-heavy / high-energy. Imagine the riot segment at the end of A Bewitching Revolution expanded into a full game!

Thanks so much for the lovely comments!! I really appreciate it, and I'm glad you liked the game!

Thanks! That's really great to hear :)

Hey, I'm really glad you liked it! Sorry about the mouse sensitivity issue - I think it is something hardware specific, because I could never get it to happen on my old computer (and so I couldn't track down the cause)... But I just checked and it is happening on my new computer,  so I'll try to track it down and fix it as soon as possible!

Hey Erin! Really sorry about the bug - thanks for giving all the detail. I'm finally getting around to these updates now, so I hopefully should be able to track down the problem!

As a hint, have a look for the people who've already got problems with the workplace! (Or just keep an eye on the colour of the dialogue text)

Loved the video! Thanks so much for putting this together :D

Thanks! Glad to hear you liked it :)

Thanks! Glad you liked it!

You might not have completed the grouping part? I'm going to do an update today which should make that part clearer.
