"You have a problem: you're out of work, and the government is threatening to cut off your benefits. Don't worry- Oswald Mandias will help you. He'll help everybody. Once his dreams of resurrecting an ancient kingdom are realised, nobody will be spared his benevolence.
In this free, adventure-choosing graphic novel game, you must outwit drugged-up zombies, genetically modified monstrosities, seductive sisters and one very sadistic secretary, in order to prevent a dark and terrifying future for mankind. Oh, and get to the pub quiz in time because your mate Dave won't stop nagging you about it."
From the creators of Witches and Bandits and Swords (Oh My)
Please note, I’m the writer/ creative fella, so these features below will be from a design rather than a technical viewpoint, as Coder Mike sorts that out. A lot of the desired features are based on improvements from our first game. Please follow us if this sounds like your cup of tea. The best way to tell if you’ll like it is to give our first game a run out, or watch a streamer play it if you're really lazy...
13+ and 18+ Versions
Full Screen and Download Version (Witches... just had a small, windowed mode which made it difficult to stream amongst other things)
Better menu/ item system. More dynamic
Game now written specifically as a video game, not just an adapted ebook.
Game to be in 3 parts. This is essentially a way of breaking the game down into chunks to stop me getting overwhelmed.
Some kind of save system. Mike and I aren’t big fans of putting save points everywhere, but a lot of player comments on Kongregate requested this, so we might have to give in.

Probably several dozen other things that will only spring to mind in the future. I’ll try to record them on here as I think of them. Hopefully this will be a good tool to help with developing the game.
