So, not sure if I blabbered to the forums yet, but a while back, I started working on a big idea that then got small and then turned into a different project entirely. Years later, the thing is finally out. 

 

World, I give to thee Army of Tentacles. Now on Steam for monetary value.

 

It's not a Cthulhu dating simulator. But it is an H.P. Lovecraft-based RPG-Adventure hybrid set in a visual novel format (hence the dating sim subtitle). Take a look, I know it won't be everyone's cup of tea, but we're all pretty proud of the product we made. 

 

We just put the Mac version up, and are working on Linux and possibly even Tablet.

I saw that a week or two ago.  I'll definitely check it out once there is a Linux version, though I have to admit that I'm a little bit disappointed that it is not a Cthulhu dating simulator.  :p

Yeah, we changed the subtitle to (Not) because people got upset that, in beta, it wasn't.

I did my part too, and by that I mean I reported Bryy for shameless self promotion.

complete aside: we thought dina meyer were all kinda hot in starship troopers, but given how little o' heinlein's starship troopers is in paul verhoeven's starship troopers, am wondering why the producers even bothered to get the movie rights to the novel. 

 

HA! Good Fun!

It's always nice to see a developer listen to feedback (even if said feedback essentially boils down to "give us moar tentacle pr0n").

It's been something we went back and forth about. A lot of people seem to "be into that", though. 

 

We have a list of things that need to be done first, most notably Linux as well as getting on other distribution platforms, so I wouldn't expect anything soon.
