So I've finally been able to upload a sort of "trailer" for Heileen 2!

Ellie's voice with english accent seems even better to me :twisted:

So one month after my last update, the situation is:
- the game script is 100% done. However I'm still waiting for some pictures, in particular the one for the endings and some are quite fun (Heileen angel / devil in particular :mrgreen: )
- the voices are being made, but is taking lot of time. Ellie is very busy and I'm not sure she'll be able to make it before end of november even if I hope so :)

I'm thinking if could make sense to release the version "unvoiced" and then do an update with the voice later when all are ready ? I would prefer to just release the "finished" (full voiced) version, but it might be delayed in december which is one of the worst month for indie sales (too many AAA titles released at that period).

The voice-acting is really, really good.

Usul's from Quebec, apparently - maybe French cats got upgraded after the revolution?

Amazing! Looks like a lot better than the first game. ^_^ Can't wait to play this game.

<very pissed mode on>
unfortunately, I can confirm the game will NOT be out in november. And at this point, I have doubts even for december release. I don't like to talk bad in public about other people, but the main problem was the voiceovers. Some artists already finished their jobs (even much sooner than the deadline), while others are TOTALLY BEHIND :evil:
I am really not sure I'll keep doing voices in the games if they delay the release of 2+ months. The game is already complete and playable, but I'm "stuck in the middle": I mean, half game is voiced, the other half (and most importantly the main voice!) is missing. At this point I really want it to be fully voiced (especially since I already paid those people) but on the other hand I'm SO PISSED that I announced the game for november and then it's going out so late.
I don't like to disappoint my fans (and people) in general :(

If you've not sent them emails requesting that they hurry up, then do so. Give it a generous amount of time, then if they're still not done, threaten their income (that is, if you've not already paid them). What did they expect, to get paid when they didn't do the work? You could very well go to one of the many voice actors currently searching for work and pay them for the same quality work.

Heh, I pay them at end of work to avoid such situations. I tried all you suggested, but actually offered bigger sum if they finish sooner (when I still believed in november deadline). With the extra money incentive almost all of them finished. But well, don't like to talk about this in public, I wanted only to explain why the game isn't out yet (since in my original announcement was talking mid-November...).
Still this is helping, because now I know which are the reliable ones. I have a guy for example, Steven Mane, who sent me ALL the lines of his role in Flower Shop game after 2 days! So hopefully in future situation like this one won't repeat.

So today I made the pre-order beta version, which you can get from here: http://www.tycoongames.eu/adventures/heileen2.php
There's no demo, since I don't want all the other news site to mirror it like if was the official release - it is not :) I decided to make this available for the people who don't care much about voices, or who are eager to play the game now, since probably the fully voiced version is going to be released in January at this point.

Use the coupon: SEVEN to get 30% off the game price :)

Oh, it's not fully voiced yet? Darn. Honestly, I wonder if for longer games if only voicing crucial cutscenes and the climaxes/highlights of the story isn't the way to go.

How much will H2 be in December, and will you be making a demo up?
