Hooray! I've been lurking this thread for the last month or so waiting for release.
Don't worry, we can get through it together. I didn't forget about you! I just got overwhelmed.

So, due to computer problems and stuff, TCAST is currently looking for someone to help out with a little graphics stuff and then we can move into beta testing. I posted a thread in the recruitment forum, if you want to learn a little bit more about what's going on. If you're interested, please PM me or post in either thread. :)

Only scripting is left?! How close are you now? :D I was very interested in the story and I'm still interested now. Are you stuck? Are you fine? Am I asking too many questions? ;D

Aww, thank you guys so much!! :D So glad to hear people are still interested!

@VenusEclipse: Well, the progress is a little inaccurate. ^-^;; (I'll update it.)
1. Yes a bit of scripting is left, but that's not the hold-up. I put that the sprites are 100% because the art was finished, but they weren't ready to go into the game, (not transparent and other tiny related problems ^-^;; ) and that's the hold-up.
2. VERY CLOSE.
3. Yes, we are stuck, kind of, not really. I'm waiting on someone to finish off the sprites, but they'll be out of commission until June 1st. So yeah. (ANXIOUS) After that I'm gonna have like a week of beta-testing and stuff, and then hopefully we'll release. But whenever I throw a date around, there's a hold up, so I need to stop doing that. XD
4. Yeah, I'm pretty swell, how about yourself? :D
5. NEVAH! 8D

I don't know if this has come up before, but did you get the idea after watching A.I. (film)? I say that simply because in the film Jude Law plays a robotic prostitute who helps the little boy find a fairy godmother.

Lol! XD Yes, I did, sort of. A lot of themes in the game come from A.I., and of course Jude is named after Jude Law. (Is that reference too obvious? XD)

When it comes out (or unless you played the text version floating around these threads somewhere...) I think you'll see A.I.'s influence, but this game is it's own story. :) Hopefully. XD

Are you going to add a custom interface and textbox? The title screen screenshot has the default so I was just wondering.

Good luck on the final bits. Oh, and I'm fine too. :mrgreen:

Um, nope, I'm just going with the default for now. ^-^;; I know that's lame, but layouts and interface intimidate the crap out of me and I'm the one doing the coding. ^-^;;

Glad to hear it! :D Thank you so much.

Haven't gone through the whole thread just yet, but I noticed the progress tracker and pretty much grinned.

The title art looks beautiful and poignant, and I find the plot 'catchline' really piques my interest. I'll definitely give it a whirl once its done.

And congratulations for getting to that 'just about freaking done' state! It's a great accomplishment, no doubt about it.

Psht, please don't go through the whole thread. XD It's mega-old (over a year and a half) and not a lot happened. My lineartist didn't even appear until page thirteen. XD Like a freaking angel sent from Australia. o.o

Thank you so much for posting and for the compliments! :D I'm so glad to hear it caught your interest!
I'm so excited and can't wait to get it out to you guys. :D
