Really enjoyed playing the game and made a brief gameplay review of a quick game.
Keep up the great work and hope you get greenlit soon :)
Ooh thanks, very nicely an professionally done. Good narrator voice too.
And yup, the game got Greenlit! Just working out the final deals and hopefully we should be up there soon :D
Great game, got it from Groupees, I just wish there will be updates with more "cases".
As I replied to HooterBabby, we're still contemplating next project, might take a bit of a break from the Postmortem universe for a change. But it's definitely a ripe material for more scenarios, and something we considered from the get go, so might get back to it in the future :)
Glad you enjoyed it tho!
Will there be more scenarios available in the future?
Sorry for getting back to this so late! Still contemplating next project, might take a bit of a break from the Postmortem universe for a change. But it's definitely a ripe material for more scenarios, and something we considered from the get go, so might get back to it in the future :)
I played the freeware version and I have to say I was quite surprised. Well written lore explained well to understand, interesting characters that have different views and opinions all with well written characteristics. I think it's good that there isn't a good or bad ending but just a ending.
The trailer ends with the words "...because one must."
...don´t you think there is an important little word missing?
"One Must Die"
Did the price just go up? I thought it was £3 yesterday, and was planning to get it today.
