    It looks like the art is even better than the first game. I hope it does great!

    Best regards,

    Yeah, looks neat!

    I remember playing the first game and thinking it was neat.

    Congrats on the upcoming release!

    I've played all the way past the natives' village so far, the writing is great as usual and I like the dreams/tarot cards system. I'm sure it will do well and the voices could add to the polish for sure.

    Best regards,
    Emmanuel

    Looks good visually, but voice acting isnt too sharp. There's definitely a lot of ground loop hum in the first part of the video. The acting doesnt feel very solid for the voices too.

    But the rest looks fine!

    Well the video audio quality is at 22khz so maybe is that. The main voice is actually going to be replaced, and Ebele's voice (the only other voice you can hear) is one of the few done by a pro voice actress ;)

    A quick post to say that I've added demo download links. I realized the voices won't be ready before January (or even February) so decided to release the unvoiced demo now, and then when voices will be ready will do an update for the game (for free of course).

    Anyone notice that the same character artist for Heileen is in WildHollow? Anyone know who it is? They do great work!

    Yes Rebecca is quite good, even if recently overwhelmed by work! :(

    Yep, Rebecca did the character art for both Spandex Force and Wildhollow - and she's quite excellent! No wonder she's fully booked. :)
