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.
