    Hey there people.

    Hi Luis... as a guy who grew up reading Weird War comics this is up my alley - I like zombies and WWII. Your video isn't ready for prime time though - half way through the video I was waiting for it to be done. I'd can that techno music you are using. I also wouldn't describe it as an episodic adventure - make something short and super compelling and then I, as a user, will tell you that I want more. Starting out with telling me this is an episodic game just feels like I'm going to be shelling out more money as time goes by. As a user, if I dig your game, I'll do that naturally so you can skip that message before I'm even hooked. Which gets to the most important point - those zombies with gas masks are kinda cool but overall... not there yet.

    Looks good
    Btw you've misspelt Alternate on your website you're missing an 'L' ;-)
    Which also means your url you've put in your post doesn't work.

    Hi Luis, thanks for taking my comments in the spirit they were intended. I've got a bunch of stuff coming out this year and my head is definitely in that "what makes this product unique and worth a consumers time" kind of space.

    Good luck with your game.
