    I wonder if the angel investor is Ken Williams. He would fulfill their hints, and seems to be newly energized towards games.

    Stumbled upon these videos and channel recently. I agree with him on the coziness factor in the appeal of PnC games.

    Ooh, these look great!

    Not sure anyone would be interested, but I did an interview with a site called Genesis Temple about adventure game design and Strangeland in particular: https://open.spotify.com/show/2iYAd9dCDnjnVlY5nfcgnW Just got through listening to it, and I quite like it.

    Only if I write one, probably.

    I’m like you—I generally feel a need to control the pace of consumption, and to be able to skip around as my interest takes me. But most interviews seem to be audio or video these days, alas.

    Blacksad was plagued by technical issues that they never bothered fixing. This one better be good.

    Played through most of the above, some impressions:

    : https://rpgcodex.net/forums/threads...nt-and-click-x-beatem-up.136188/#post-7364728

    The Season of the Warlock: https://rpgcodex.net/forums/threads/the-season-of-the-warlock.139076/#post-7367016

    Warp Frontier: Pretty trash from the looks of it. Meh voice acting and sound levels off with some characters and lines louder than the protagonist, awkward animations, static backgrounds that look like from a VN, lots of hotspots that aren't directly interactable with no dialogue, just an explanatory text Popup at the top. Stupid and non-obvious puzzles because of this, you'd think you could take something from the garbage, crates lying around the ship to patch the hole, but the game wants you to remove a specific tool panel with a knife to be able to do it. You have to use items on yourself for further interaction etc. Your Helper AI tells you you're being "Offensive". Ends relatively quickly.

    The Night Is Grey: Good looking art style, simplistic gameplay with a mouse pointer in the form of a simple white circle and just being able to click a few obvious hot spots for dialogue. No voice acting. The Mouse cursor turns into arrows in places where you can traverse to another screen. Inventory bar appears at the top. It feels like it was designed for tablets or mobile. There was a Quicktime Event to start something. Somewhat intriguing characters and premise about a guy named Graham that got lost in the woods and is being trailed by wolves, meets a little girl that is in need of help. Low-key creepy atmosphere. Not much more to say.

    Need some new weeb mystery schlock to look forward to since Uchikoshi and Kodaka started making platformers and baseball games. Apparently the writer for this has done some enjoyable mystery novels and I kinda like the rough hand-drawn style of animation.

    I can't figure out why anyone would think "amnesiac protagonist" is a selling point. It always makes me think an author said, "I want to write something!", sharpened a pencil, sat down, and immediately ran out of ideas.

    Not sure if this has been mentioned here, but Tormentum is getting a 'sequel'. Different world though.

    Sequel to the fantastic AI: The Somnium Files has been announced. Looks like I was wrong about those baseball games and platformers after all.

    GRUNND kickstarter campaign is underway. Not sure what I think of this one, but I guess it looks kinda cool.

    There's a demo available on Steam and Itch.
