    As you should, it's not like your game got much coverage either, maybe you should work on it.


    Come on, why would anyone pay more than 20 bucks for those things you're playing, now we know either you're filthy rich or you have no business sense. :shitposting:

    I was a dumb kid. I’m not sure when I last paid more than 10–I think maybe I bought Starcraft 2 for 20.

    Perhaps Guybrush takes into account future inflation though. He* says "never" after all. [​IMG]


    *well, technically the players choses the "moral" for himself in the game from 3 or 4 options iirc.

    TL;DR: Planning a crowdfunding campaign for Switch version of Hero-U; the sequel Wizard Way is going along, planned to release in 2020; the spin-off Summer Daze is planned for next year; there's also a board game, Hero-U Steal or Deal, in the prototype phase; also even more plans for a recipe book, streaming playthroughs of Quest for Glory, more Kickstarters, "other types of games", oh my... did they got money from loan sharks?

    Ughhhh maybe...it is not really a bad game. Exploration is interesting,the time part is annoying but you could use cheatengine and ignore it.

    I liked it okay. Just don’t go in expecting anything on the level of QFG (or, honestly, anything in the same sub-genre) and you will have an okay time. It has very, very strong Harry Potter vibes which is a malus for me, but ymmv.

    I’ve yet to see any conclusive evidence that it did not meet internal pre-release expectations.

    Is it concerning that the Coles need to raise money for porting Hero-U to Switch? I have no idea how much it would actually cost, so I'm not sure if any conclusions can be drawn regarding Hero-U's sales.

    Regardless, Hero-U is probably a good match for Switch, both graphically and with its more "casual" interface. Plus the Switch library has a mere fraction of the competition on Steam, so the game could find a decent audience.

    The only thing I want to know about all this is if the Coles paid back their mortgage.
