Woke up today to a lot of sales and traffic from an unknown source. Did a brief search, and hot damn!

Yay for your continued success! The more success for you, the more games you make for me! Win-win all around!
A Close Shave:
*Last Thing Done (Jul 7) Finished Emotion Matrix for Joint Customer Sprite.
*Currently Doing: Print Matrices, & decide emotions to use for Joint Sprite, think about blinking and lip flap. Maybe also about TransitionConditionSwitch?
*First Next thing to do: Code in all the sprite emotion and camera movement for Close Shave Sprite Sections
*Next Thing to Do: Code in all CG and special animation stuff
*Other Next Thing: Do SFX

It's really not such a biggie business-wise. But it's just cool to see your game on a popular website you frequent :).

One of the best games I've ever played. I played it twice but first did the game around Christmas of last year. I really wish Cinderella was more like Cinders. She's beautiful but smart and won't settle to only settle down to live for a man. Also, I liked how the
the prince wanted a wife for brains and not for her looks.
In the Disney verision they fall in love yet no nothing about each other :?. Anyway good job and I'll play more of you're games in the near future.

I adored this game, the art especially was breathtaking. I am very much looking forward to the sequel!

I loved this game, it's one of my favourite visual novels. I just have to ask, does the game have a skip-button? It's very frustrating to click through all the text you've seen when you're trying to get all the endings...

Yup. Ctrl skips through already seen scenes. :)

I read your article about Cinders' production. Excellent work, guys! You're an inspiration to us!

I just played through Cinders. Loved it! Nice use of nonstandard animational and lighting elements. You also did a truly excellent job of placing decision points and giving a sense of gravity to each choice. Beautiful work and congrats.

Guys! It finally happened. We’ve submitted Cinders to Steam Greenlight.

Image

Visual novels focused on women certainly aren’t Steam’s bread and butter (no zombies!?), so pushing it through the gates will require some effort. But hey, it’s not fun if it’s easy, right?

We need all the help we can get, so be sure to lend us your vote and spread the word among your friends who could be interested in supporting more diversity on Steam.

Thanks :).

No problem :).

Stats from our Greenlight campaign after four days.

Apparently, our sassy redhead heroine is quite the sprinter, so thanks for your magnificent support! We still need a lot more votes before we even get to the top-100, though ;).
