Walkerman [Fantasy][Commercial]

Walkerman is an Adventure Game/Visual Novel about hunting supernatural creatures. These creatures follow rules similar to old folk tales about vampires and garlic, or werewolves and silver bullets; rules that must be exploited to defeat them. Each act of Walkerman centers on a creature and the process of investigating it. Players will study the monster in order to ascertain its weaknesses, gather the necessary items, and then confront it in battle. Combat takes place on an isometric, pseudo-board game in which the player selects actions from a list of options. These battle sequences have multiple solutions, depending on the player's collected items and their knowledge of the monster. Players also steer the protagonist through his personal life in a similar fashion: deciding whom to trust, where to borrow money, etc which alters how the story progresses.

Oh, cool! I've been wondering whether this was still active. Somehow I missed the first demo release, but I'm glad to see Walkerman's still in development. :)

This looks really polished! I'm definitely going to check out the demo! (And I love the look of the red-head!)
Edit: I'm only partway through the demo and I'm already really into it! Backing your Kickstarter! :)

So I was planning on saving this for a little later in the campaign but I'll share it now.

Here's a little showtune that takes place during Nora's route, wherein she attempts to win Jorgen's heart on finance:

We're now gathering feedback on Walkerman's art direction, as it's become apparent that some VN fans don't enjoy Western art very much. You can leave your thoughts here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/MHRSTVB or in this very thread.

I'm getting:

"Oh bananas!
We can't find the page you requested."

I'm sure some people don't enjoy Western art, in the same way that some people don't enjoy anime/manga art. The game looks gorgeous and your true fans will see that - I wouldn't change anything! :)

Courtesy bump I suppose?!
Just realised this kickstarter is like $30 from being funded and has 14 hours to go. That's like, one pledge if we can make it!
