This is wonderful

I've been working on a similar game for some time now and I'm laughing at the fact that I've set up my game almost identically to yours.  Aesthetically it's much different (read:worse) but a lot of the mechanics are the same; if anything you've done it better and I need to step up my work! :p


That all being said, this game is lovely.  I love everything about this and I currently can't stop playing it.  Congratulations on an absorbing and engrossing experience!  I'm gonna tell some more people about this gem of eldritch horrors.


EDIT: Oh man, I've played through this a few times and started poking through files and I have a few questions for you, if you ever feel so inclined as to indulge me.

Hey!

Thanks for the praise, I'm really glad you liked DC!

I'm also curious about your game, I hope you'll let me know when you make it public so I can take a peak.

As for the questions about the files, or anything else, be my guest!

:D

So I saw how to mod in new monsters and that's simple enough but I noticed on the heroes png there were two empty slots...did you plan to have more heroes and decided against it?  Or maybe even the ability to add custom heroes?  I'd love to add a custom hero.
I really like how the game sorts all the info out, i think it's pretty elegant.  I'm also enjoying playing around in the lab and synthesizing potions, they really started coming in handy once I increased the difficulty.

I did have a question about the different colors of the map events and the reporter cards...is there a relationship between them?  Does an agent have a better chance if the colors matched?  It seems like it so far but that just may be luck.

I've been working on two projects at the same time so it's going slow but steady...I'll have a demo up soon though!  Hard to get any work done when I keep finding cool stuff to play! >.>

Heh, yeah, I like having things neatly organised, makes everything so  much simpler!

The colors on the map are completely random... When I was a kid some of my relatives worked in offices, in those times, a office was usually stocked with all these different cards and tags made of cardboard. And it was in all different colors so the employees there could mark their files or charts or whatnot with them. But the colors never had a formal code or meaning they were just there for them to be able to locate the stuff they needed at a glance. So I thought it would be less boring if I gave these cards some color as well.

As for additional reporters alas the answer is also no, the game has a hard coded number of reporters so you can't disable any of them either. But you can tweak their abilities and "personality" a bit. Maybe even change their names? Not sure about that anymore, it's almost been 4 years since then...

Thanks for the reply! Guess I was just getting lucky with the color-matching scheme.

As for the reporters I'll tool around with the files a bit and see what I can get away with! :p

I don't blame you for not remembering lol I leave a project for a week and forget what I was doing, let alone years.
