Good sir, could you please fix the Mac link for the demo? At the moment, the file appears to be missing. I really want to play the game.

I'll just update in his stead >_> BTW, he wanted to post after finishing the promo images so yes he saw your guys' posts.

I have a DropBox mirror up, you can grab it here. I was playing with his files though so if the script's weird, I forgot to fix it D: The font should be something other than the default though.

Last he told me he was putting finishing touches on Greg's route (editing and programming). After that's done, I'll start proofreading and crying a lot.

For the past few days he's been vacationing in Switzerland but he should be back soon. If you want to keep up on the smaller bits of development, he's most active on his Twitter account.

Is this still alive? I haven't seen any activity anywhere for a while, and this looks like it would be a great game.

Game status: still alive! The prognosis of 'should be done by the end of the year' turned out to be a bit of a pipe dream, but this project is still kicking like a terrifying mutant baby comprised entirely of legs.

I do feel kind of bad about bumping this thread just to say 'it lives', however, so if anyone happens to have a request for a drawing or some bit of material relevant to FA:NG to fit in this space be my guest.

EDIT:

Well fine then, I'll just have to show you guys an excerpt of the most romantic scene in the game. Prepare to be blown away!
mike "AWWRIGHT DAWG LET’S DO THIS"
jeff "YEAAAAAAH DAWG LET’S ROLL"
"Jeff brings his face closer to mine."
jeff "..."
mike "..."
"This feels more like a staring concert than anything even remotely resembling a romantic overture."
"Not that I'd know a romantic overture if it one inch punched me in the solar plexus, but I do know awkward tension when it one inch punches me in the solar plexus."
"Which it does on a regular basis. Like now."
mike "...have you, uh, ever actually kissed anyone before?"
jeff "NOT AT ALL"
mike "Okay. All right."
mike "We- we got this."
"I grasp Jeff by the shoulders and stare deeply (romantically?) into his eyes."
"Are we about to make out or grapple each other? I might've just made things worse."
mike "So uh."
jeff "Yeah. I guess it's like-"
jeff "Er."
Also, did you know I have a Twitter? Because I do! Now you can feel free to stalk me troll me doxx me get smaller updates on FA:NG and my life in general so that you know for sure that this project is not dead.

I do hate to double-post, but not really!

1) This thread is now in WiP rather than Ideas. Sakevisual agreed that this was a good idea since I've had a demo for a thousand years.

2) I've been cutting a swath through the land, holding voice actors at gunpoint, making them play the FA:NG demo then asking if they'd be interested in voice acting for the game! Harder better faster smarter about it this time! Here are some of the results of that labor thus far (might be considered spoilers?!?!1111)

3) I'm still in the coding stage, after which will come art. At that point I'll be releasing a second, shinier, higher-effort, longer, improved demo... WITH VOICE ACTING

4) Armed with that demo and some grit and determination, I will do a Kickstarter for FA:NG so that I can pay the rest of what is now a team a fair wage of fairness. Also maybe be able to make some FA:NG t-shirts?

5) FA:NG itself will stay free. I'm vaguely considering making it a pay-what-you-want, but the minimum would be literally free even in that case. So if you are utterly broke, you can always and forever play FA:NG.

I just played the demo yesterday and this game is awesome!
I wish someone could 'woo' me with all those nerdy references. If only...
Anyway, it's good to see this is still going strong even after all those years and I'm still looking forward to it's release. Alsooo, have some fanart!

XD
Is it sad that I relate to the main character on an almost spiritual level?
No?
Ok then...
...this concept is awesome, and sounds super amusing...
...the best part is this...
....I'm actually lacking words here, so I'll just go with; "this is awesome" and leave it at that.^^

I can already feel the second hand embarrassment and I love it. So looking forward to the final game!
