The demo can be downloaded here.

Trailers and screenshots can be found here.

Quote:
The full game is planned for release as an indie title towards the end of 2012 or early 2013. It's a retro style adventure game with a comedy sci-fi setting. The demo features the game's eponymous character trying to do something amazingly challenging - getting his spaceship, Disaster Area, out of orbit. The demo takes place at approximately the halfway point of the game.


Happy Gaming!

What a great little game! I tried the demo and was able to complete it without help! Unusual for me... Will be buying this one when it is complete. -- I thought it had a great funny/cute factor!

Maybe they would get somewhere if the computer stopped using big words like "obviating."

Loved the trailer.

Thanks Ana! wave

Sharon, you did better than I. I think I spent too much time playing with the gadget in inventory. :loL: Then I accidentally X'd out and lost my progress. I was enjoying it so far.

Hi everyone! So glad to see that people have been enjoying the demo so far - this is our first ever release and we had the odd problem on the release date itself, so pretty relieved it seems to have gone so well overall...

Ana - thanks again for posting this! laugh Sorry you managed to exit the game (how?!? Can you email me what happened just in case this is some weird bug we never found?) - are you talking about the Quadcorder?

SharonB - glad you enjoyed it and found the difficulty level about right. Could I ask how long it took you to complete the demo?

Becky - Zero-Bit's vocabulary is absolutely NOT the problem here! razz

Anyway we still only have 64 downloads so if you want to look at the demo it's here.

Cheers,


Dave
(CaptainD of Team Disaster)

Thanks Ana, smile

CaptainD - I think it said 88 mins. I'm never fast. Once I figured out the logic it made sense to me. -- What does that say about me! crazy

Loved the allusion to Space Quest, another of my favorite series.

SharonB - the only other time I had so far was 42 mins 33 seconds, BUT that was another adventure game developer who achieved that time - and from personal experience, I think designing adventure game puzzles makes you better at solving them!

I was aiming at around the hour mark as a very loose estimation of the completion time for the demo, so it seems so far that I wasn't too far out. smile

What particularly did you like btw? Most of the allusions I threw in were to skiffy shows / movies and LucasArts adventure games - I was never as much of a fan of Sierra games myself.

CaptainD, yes it was the Quadcorder. I was having fun trying it on everything evwen though I don't think it needed to be used yet. rotfl
I believe I just clicked outside the game box by accident and it closed the game. If I have time today I will try it again.


welcome to Gameboomers!

Yep unfortunately you get standard responses to pretty much everything with the quadcorder right now (though it DOES serve a useful purpose in the demo - in fact you can't complete the demo without using it) - but for the full game I want to add more fun responses to using the quadcorder on stuff. smile

I love when a game gives you "funny" snarky responses when you do things that are unlikely to result in the correct action you were looking for. Most times developers fail by making them too insulting but when it's done well it can lead to some chuckles that make you want to do more goofy things.

Well we definitely want to include more of those! razz

Insulting the player isn't something we want to do... although it may seem like that as Captain Disaster often gets insulted, and he IS the player character!
