@CaptainD -- I don't remember exactly. It was just something about Roger Wilco being a Janitor/Captain on Space Quest. The tone in this demo reminds me of the tone in Red Dwarf. Sarcastic, but funny and forgiving with it. That's the best I can put it.

Anyway, I think you're off to a great start and I look forward to seeing the whole game. Keep up the good work! thumbsup

I'm curious... has anyone found it tough to get the ring? (It's part of the hand scanner puzzle) - I only ask because the last 2 comments I've had on the game on the AGS forums mention that they're stuck. I didn't think it was that difficult, but if people are genuinely struggling with it we may add a subtle hint somewhere in this section while developing the full game.

CaptainD -- I didn't have trouble finding the ring. I am, however, having trouble

Figuring out how to anesthetize the thumb.


I enjoyed the humor in the demo. wave

Have you tried looking round near the transporter pad?


If you need me to be more specific...

Click to reveal..
Have you tried interacting with the coolant pipe?


When you've completed it, can you post your time for me? I'm interested in how long it takes people to play through it.

Fun game! Looking forward to the full version also. I've been at it for about 80 minutes (with breaks), and have fixed up my hand less the ring, which I simply cannot find! What am I missing? Subtle (or not so) hint anyone?

There's something you've had in your inventory right from the start that might help... there's also somewhere on the ship where things tend to gather...


I hope that helps without giving it away too much!

Excellent CaptainD! Nice nudge. Was the only place I hadn't tried that....and I've been adventure gaming since the early 70's! Shoulda known...

Cheers! Mike

EDIT: Well CaptainD, I thought you'd like to know that the timer said 116 minutes, but I really only played for like an hour when I finished....left the game up while I took a lunch break. Anyway, great fun! I'll be watching for updates on the full release!

That's good because I had planned the demo to take about an hour to complete! smile

I know what you mean about game timers too - Steam's timer frequently adds on hours to my game completion time because it's still on while I have to do other things.

Thanks for the feedback, and I'm glad you enjoyed it.


Also, if you encountered anything that you felt was crying out for a funny response / something you were disappointed by when you got a generic response, please post about it in this thread too. I'll try to make sure, as much as possible, that everything players felt really deserved a unique response actually gets one!

EDIT: I've added a poll to the dev blog to see if people thought that puzzle was too difficult - head over to http://www.captaindisasterthecomputergame.com/ and cast your vote now!

(We'll put an extra hint in the full game if people thought it was too hard.)

This is a request for a favour from people who have played the demo (whether or not you liked it!) - could you possibly head over the the AGS Game Page and give it a rating? We've had 224 downloads so far but still not enough ratings for the system to give it an average (I believe 5 is the minimum number).

Thanks everyone!

There's also a poll on the dev blog about the ring puzzle - so far no-one's said they found it too difficult! If you disagree, let me know.
