I've been neglecting this thread. Oops.

Liz G.'s sprite is done, and she's in the game. (Screenshots are updated in the first post.) I've also gotten a ton of great feedback already from my beta testers... we're up to 7 separate builds of the beta already, with fixes. It's interesting to note how much I've missed on certain things, like Adam's sprite, which has been done and in the game for over a year. I guess that's why beta testing is important.

We also have a new updated trailer, featuring all of the sprites so far. I think it's actually done except for the final three sprites.


We're getting so close!

One last update before the holidays...

I have a website now! http://bobcgames.com is my main site that will (eventually) include more info about each of my games.

For YAGS-specific things, there's http://yags.bobcgames.com which is intended to collect together all of the stuff I had on tumblr.

Game-wise, we have pencils for the final three sprites in the game. Here's Robert, Steve, and Leigh/Ashleigh.

We're still on track for a late-January 2019 game release.

Some post-Holiday updates for you!

Wolfscade made another piece of YAGS fanart. It's Carlos this time, and the piece is absolutely gorgeous. (The guy isn't half bad, either ;) )

Game-wise, Robert inks are in.

But most importantly... we have a release date!
Barring unforeseen circumstances, YAGS will be released on Saturday, January 19, 2019 at 10 AM EST on itch.io. Please watch my twitter or the official website for info there.

I'm so excited (and terrified!) to finally get this game out to everyone.

Yes, congratulations - i've donated and looking forward to going through it all from the start again.

It's been really enjoyable watching it come together and it's been fascinating getting some insights into the background processes you went through. :D

Thanks to both of you. I hope you enjoy the final product as much as I loved getting it out to everyone. :)
