Quote:
29th December 2017 - Birmingham, UK – Team Disaster is overjoyed to announce that Captain Disaster in: Death Has A Million Stomping Boots is now available!

This retro point and click adventure game is designed to simultaneously test your grey matter and tickle your funny bone with a wide variety of puzzles, multitudinous alien and robotic lifeforms to interact with, and more parody elements than you could shake a stick at (if you are in that habit of shaking sticks at things, that is). Of course no self-respecting comedy sci-fi game is complete without some lunatic trying to take over the galaxy, so we have one of them, too!

Developers “Team Disaster” estimate that, Including social media and adventure game forums, this game is hotly anticipated by a worldwide following of up to a dozen (though up to half of those are probably bots) They also guarantee that this game will take you an indeterminate amount of time to complete. If that doesn’t convince you, they just don’t know what will! At any rate, you must want to know what these “million stomping boots” are, right? RIGHT? Hey, where did everybody go?


Happy Gaming!

Ana

Thanks Iurii!

Good question. The short answer is almost definitely, but not for a while.

There are two reasons for this:

1- I want to first have it on the truly indie-friendly sites like Itch, GameJolt and FireFlower
2- Will take a bit of work to add some nice achievements to the game - which I really want to do for the Steam release

Also we are looking at how feasible it is to release on other formats, so that's our first priority.

Hi Dave,
I do intend to purchase this newest game of yours, but I will need a decent text walkthrough in order to play it. At 86 yrs old I "ain't" as sharp as I used to be so I need all the help I can get. LOL I wish you luck in all of your ventures.

Hey Sandy!

Firstly, I'd like to say that you still playing adventure games at 86 is absolutely brilliant!! smile smile I hope I'm still doing it at that age.

As to a walkthrough - I'll put it on my list to do (we did actually make one some time ago during development but have updated a lot of things in the game since then), but the internet seems to be full of people who are able to solve games and put walkthroughs up with incredible speed. We'll see how does it first!

I appreciate your support as always!

Cheers,


Dave

Thanks Dave,
It's always a pleasure to communicate with you, and as for a walkthrough for this game, I'll be searching for one. If you write your own WT, please post this on our forum. Looking forward to playing this in the near future.
Regards,
Sandy

Ana / MAD / Jenny / Whoever - please feel free to copy this straight into a walkthrough on GameBoomers if you want. I understand you may wish to wait for all 3 acts to be done of course.

OK Dave,
Your game purchased, downloaded, and installed. I just printed out your great ACT ONE WT, and "May the fun begin" LOL
Sandy

Just started to play the game. After tweaking some choices in the Compatibility menu, running perfectly.

Just picked this up and I will be playing it shortly. smile Will also try to a record a let's play. I've been a patron of CaptainD for some time and it's pretty awesome to finally see the ten years of hard work come to fruition. Kudos, sir!

Thanks Sandy!

Walkthrough for Act II is up - http://www.captaindisasterthecomputergame.com/2018/01/captain-disaster-in-death-has-million_8.html

@Silverspook - thanks for streaming the game, although it's been about 6 years not 10 (think I would have really lost my mind if it had been a full decade, although there's a strong case for no-one noticing the difference if that had happened...)

Silverspook's video is here - http://www.captaindisasterthecomputergame.com/2018/01/playthrough-of-stomping-boots-by.html
JupiterHadley did a Let's Play vid as well - http://www.captaindisasterthecomputergame.com/2018/01/first-lets-play-of-game.html

In case anyone's interested I've also put some more screenshots up:

Thanks for the Act 2 WT, Dave. I'm almost done with Act 1. HOWEVER,
I'm stuck on the "Spinning Color Wheels" puzzle. can't get all the colors set correctly. If there is a tip you can give me on this one I certainly would appreciate it. I apologize to Ana if my post should be listed in "Hints",and I'll make sure that from now on I WILL post these questions in "Hints".
Sandy

Never mind, Dave.
With a little more patience and a lot more concentration, I managed to "beat" that puzzle, finally. Playing Act 2 now.

Glad you got there in the end Sandy - sorry my walkthrough wasn't clear enough! frown


Act III walkthrough is now done - http://www.captaindisasterthecomputergame.com/2018/01/captain-disaster-in-death-has-million_9.html

The game has been updated to v1.01 due to some small / rare bugs being found. Players using v1.00 have no need to update unless they actually encounter problems (savegame files will almost definitely not work between versions unfortunately).

We are working on an updated version of the demo (the old one is from 2012 and we have updated quite a bit since then!) - that should be available on Itch within the next few days.

We will also be putting the game up on FireFlower Games in the near future too.

Thanks for Act 3 WT, Dave, but I have one question for you: You said in this post that there MIGHT some "problems" with ver.100. How does this problem show up in the game? So far (and I'm playing ACT 2 right now), I haven't had any technical problems. How can I tell as to which version I have? WHEW!

As you downloaded before we did the update, you will have v1.00. Even if you encounter one of the bugs that have been fixed you may not even have realised (they are very small bugs!).

There is one quite nasty bug; however it requires an extremely specific set of actions to activate. This was the report of how it happened (it's near the end of Act III, hidden as puzzle spoiler):

Click to reveal..
"After entering the military base. After turning up the thermostat, I went back behind the fence and turned the invisibility device back on. I then poured the leftover coffee into the vent, then proceeded to immediately move into the nook behind the replicator"

So... don't do that. You very probably wouldn't have done anyway! I think the key issue is not turning the invisibility device back on before you use the coffee on the vent.

Hi Dave,
Just starting Act 3, loving this game.
Question: How can I tell which version I have- 1.00 or 1.01?

H Sandy - glad you're enjoying the game!

There's no way in-game to tell which version, but if you still have your installer, cd-dhamsb-1.0.1.0-setup.exe is v1.01, cd-dhamsb-1.0.0.0-setup.exe is v1.00.

Cheers,


Dave

@Fireflower - aw, you beat me to it!
@Sanford - uh... just talking to my co-dev, apparently all you need to do to get the version number is press "v" at any time in the game!

Hi shadow9d9ii!

GOG - not unless they change their mind frown
Steam - yes, not sure exactly when - had been intending to do a shiny version with Achievements and Trading Cards, but in the interests of using our time to develop the next Captain Disaster game instead we may just release it without extras, which we'll obviously be able to do quicker. I'll announce it when we make a final decision!
Humble - assuming they accept the game then yes.

Hope to be able to give more definite information soon! smile

CaptainD, don't feel bad. GoG has turned their nose up to a ton of developers I know. It's ridiculous!

Steam, don't rush your game on their without the achievements and trading cards. It's a turnoff for lots of Steam users.

I will say for GOG that at least their reply gives the impression that they have at least looked at your game and even though they're rejecting they do so nicely and give you positive comments about the game too. It's far better than a standard rejection letter. They felt CD was "too niche" for them and I can't entirely blame them for that.

Still, onwards and upwards! Thanks for the advice re: Steam too.

That is their standard reply CaptainD. The "too niche" is what they all get when they say no even to what I would consider a regular P&C adventure game.

True it is a pretty standard reply, but at least their emails indicate they've given the game at least a cursory look. As a former freelance writer, I know that's a lot more than you sometimes get!! laugh

We got our first review! smile smile smile smile

https://neoretrogo.com/captain-disaster-death-million-stomping-boots-review

"The puzzles aren’t the only enjoyable part of the game though, the story is absolutely delightful. If you like a humor filled sci-fi tale chocked to the brim with references many different science fiction properties than you won’t be disappointed."

"Final thoughts: if you are in the mood for a good old school point and click this is a hard game to pass up. Even if that isn’t your forte, the story is a fun romp and to me really sells the game."


VERY happy with that review. Of course I'm looking forward (with slight trepidation as it doesn't pay to get cocky) to seeing what Flotsam made of it here on GB. wink

Thanks Ana and Marian! smile

Got two more reviews so far - one less effusive than the first (http://bigbossbattle.com/captain-disaster-review/), one even more effusive! (http://www.wraithkal.com/captain-disaster-in-death-has-a-million-stomping-boots-review/)

Also we've got the updated version of the demo up now - can be downloaded already from the Itch page (https://captaind.itch.io/captain-disaster-in-death-has-a-million-stomping-boots) - I'll add the demo to other sites soon.
