Can we get the full version on itch or GOG? I don't want to give Valve any money.

Got a reply from the dev on Twitter. The game is up to date here (which was my question). I also pointed out your question to them but I didn't ask about Steam keys as I don't use it.
I guess I'll just see where it's available when the mood strikes me.
I'm planning to play it with my dad, we actually played through the majority of the series over zoom during lockdown (me screen sharing and him watching and solving puzzles collaboratively).
This will be an interesting evolution of that dynamic (no screen sharing obviously, since the whole point is to not see what the other can see).
I'm a straight man and I'm genuinely not sure why the first story would make you cringe. It seems really strange to frame your discomfort as something that is automatically a given due to you being straight.
You allude to "your personal beliefs". While I don't want to go putting words in your mouth, whatever your personal beliefs are they aren't anything specifically to do with being straight.
You only see the train in cutscenes, you don't need to do anything to get past the opening in the train but let the cutscene play. If the cutscene isn't progressing then the problem is not that the controls don't work but that the game is soft locking during a cutscene.
I'm sorry I don't have a constructive suggestion, but hopefully this information will help in working out a solution with the devs.
Just to let you know, the AGS config program (winsetup.exe) doesn't seem to work. The error message given is "Error: unable to launch 'Decolonator2300.exe'. Make sure that file is in the same directory as this setup program."
Renaming IndigiStar.exe seems to work, so I guess this game had a name change during its life? Anyway, the config program is working for me now, but others might not put 2 and 2 together and think to change the name of the game.
Oh I see... I wanted to replay the original versions. :(
I think it would have been better to leave it there for "archival purposes" and just mention First Steps on the Trilogy page. I hate it when a remake comes out and developers try and erase all traces of the original version. Is there somewhere else I can download the trilogy?
POTENTIAL SPOILERS for anyone else reading this, obviously not an issue for the dev ;)
Once I got past that bug, the story and puzzles were great. The only annoying bits were the ones where a door had unlocked itself with no indication. The ones that held me up for a while were Cell 7 and the Kitchen Storage Room since they were both in places that I had explored thoroughly and which didn't have any 'unused' hotspots. The magically appearing blood nearly got me too, but I happened to wander that way again before being stuck too long so it didn't feel frustrating.
Having already played the Death of Erin Myers, I'm looking forward to whatever else you release in future.
Hey, I just got around to playing this and I really enjoyed it!
I discovered a pretty bad bug near the beginning though which prevents you from being able to save the game. I managed to replicate the bug a couple of times and it's pretty easy to avoid once you know what you're looking for.
If you go into the control room before getting the backup power online and click on the second computer (the security cam one) you don't get a close up but you can't open the menu any more. It's possible to walk around the place and not be able to open the menu at all. Thankfully, clicking that computer at that point in the game isn't at all necessary so it's easy to avoid once you've pinned down the cause. I'd guess that the game is disabling the menu because it's acting as if you've gone into a closeup on the computer when you haven't.
Ah cool. I was just curious because the only changelog on the page mentioned mac and linux specific stuff.
I've seen that there's a Panmorphia 2 on your website, is that coming to PC one day? I'd love to play it.
When I try and download a larger game with a download manager, I get an HTTP error 403 when the game is mostly downloaded. Retrying doesn't work as that link is now dead. It doesn't do this with smaller games, presumably because they download before the link goes dead. I've tried various ways to get a fresh link to give to the download manager so it can resume but none have worked.
Does anyone have any ideas?
Not to hijack your thread, but I have a related question:
Is there a way to re-hide projects which have been unhidden? In case I check something out, it gets automatically added but I decide it's not for me?
