Just finished the demo and really liked it

the puzzles were good and moslty logical...though
Spoiler:
I couldnt see the logic in sticking the gum covered hairpin in the crypt door and then using the shovel shards on it...

Heh heh. Yeah, some puzzles might be a bit different in the final game. At least just so people who played the demo don't have to go through exactly the same things again.

Awesome demo!
I love the part where
Spoiler:
you eat the bum, and that you have to pour tabasco on him first.


JohnGreenArt:
Do you like horrormovies? How about including references to different zombiemovies in your game?

I´m really looking forward to the finished game.I would even be willing to pay for it.

This game looks very good and equal to quality standards of any commercial release.

There are few points I must raise regarding the game.

1.) The Game Runs in 800 X 600 Resoultion, so there should be an option before starting the game is included so the game resizes it self for Full Screen.

2.) Dialogs speed are some how relatively slow.

Its an outclass effort and I really appreciate it. Please dont quit the project in the middle as it usually been happen with various projects and please take it to the end

How much work has been finished and what will be the expected date of release ?

Thanks and keep up the good work. (Thumbs Up)

Hamham Chan: I do like some horror movies, zombie films specifically, and there may be a sly reference to a few here and there in the final game. There will be sly references to lot of things, actually.

usman:

1) The demo will only run in 800 x 600 but there will be a full screen option for the final game.

2) The dialog is slow just because there's no actual voices in place. The final game will have full voices, and once there is the text will pass at the speed the recorded voice does. As it is now, you can click the mouse to skip through dialog.

I'm glad you like the game, thanks for the compliments. As for the date of release, it's really too soon to estimate right now.

The links seem (quite) dead (down?)... Perhaps they've gone on a walk... Anybody else having problems?

Downloaded the demo and tried to play, but it didn't work, won't launch, or will but shows nothing (it's visibly active in the XP taskbar, but there's no window), I've tried waiting, more waiting, closing it and launching again, but to no avail. Too bad, looks to be an awesome game.

jjacob - what file are you loading? I've tested on both Windows and Mac, so it should work. Unless it unzipped incorrectly or something.

"Nearly Departed_Win.exe", but it's working now for some reason (or rather it wasn't yesterday for some reason). Thanks anyway, I'll have some time later on to play, looking forward to it, looks awesome

This game surely proves to be the one on which Adventure Fans keeps eye open. I just hope that it will finish soon and gamers get a chance to play and enjoy
