That was bloody excellent, thanks!

Well that was bloody superb! Genuinely gasped when Ashley had her revelation in science class :) Well done, really enjoyed it, top marks for the sprite work and choice of soundtrack too :)
What a lovely warm feeling I got from this when the music kicked in, felt like I was in my old bedroom again back in the 80's! Got 18 coins and the diamond, no bugs found as of yet. Have you thought of employing a different filter over the music for each system too, or different instruments so it's still the same tune, but sounds like a different machine? Best of luck with the rest of development :)
Well done, loved it! Really reminded me of the opening act of "One Shot" (As in, strange things start happening...)
I think you have the start of something really cool here, there's a whole world waiting to be created around 'Mail Box Knights Inc' :)
Loved the aesthetics, and the soundtrack was great. You should let 'Rock Paper Shotgun' know about this, they are a fantastic advocate of indie games.
Avast is my main Antivirus detector too, and it hasn't detected anything thus far (although I only downloaded the Zip). I think it's a false positive to be honest. (And having played for a few hours, also seeing the file structure of the game, e.g, A few standard Microsoft dlls and a data directory with just the expected .pcx, .wav and .ogg extensions, I think this is as clean a package as you'll get!).
Also, it's a great game :)
My pleasure, You should be well proud of it. Loved the few hours I've played tonight. Really intuitive UI and the Abraxas Guide is such a lovely extra. Horrible feeling I'm going to run out of torches in the Den of Blood... ah well, time to fight some Orcs in the wilderness and back to town to train up a bit I guess... :)
Hi, (Last post I promise!) Sorted the problem, it was simply the fact that the recommended latest drivers I downloaded from the Acer website were NOT the latest from the Intel site. Installed them and all working fine. Game purchased :)
Nah, no need to be sorry! Screen resolution is usually 1366x768 (Usual res of past few laptop iterations), and tried all resolutions down to 800x600 with same result. If you need any more info (dxdiag, etc...) just let me know. To be honest, it's just good to give you some platform information so indie developers such as yourself are better equipped for your future releases :)
Looks really great, although I'm having a bit of trouble getting it to run :( When I double click the .exe I get a blank screen with music. Alt Tabbing out and back in results in the menu screen showing, and I can hear the click of the menu items when I select with the arrow keys but the display is not updating to reflect this :(
Probably the rubbish Intel integrated graphics I've got on this potato ;)
HD 3000 chipset
Direct X 11
Have tried fullscreeen, and windowed from a shortcut, although curiously when I select options ingame (by alt tabbing out and back in between cursor presses), the fullscreen option is greyed out and shows only "on".
Anyway, All the best :)
