    Extremely close to release now, is Lylian: Episode One. I'm both excited and nervous about putting it out there.

    Here's a video trailer created which includes some in-game footage, and the intro animation. I hope you like!

    Fantastic concept, the idea just breeds atmosphere (and well done at that).

    Neat, I recognized many Daz poser models (I've been using them for long time in the past) but the way you put the lighting and mood is really well done! :)

    Hey thanks for the kind comments everyone. really appreciate it. :)

    It's been a long process and feeling good to get it out there... still nervous though.

    @Jack Norton - sorry, No Daz models used here, all built from scratch. Although someone in the past also mentioned it looked like poser models, maybe it's the shaders or something... But I've never used Poser (and I'm certainly not against anyone that has).

    Nice and creepy, I was hoping for in-game music more like... say The Ring soundtrack when you started out with the piano, but it looks like it's got a mood all its own.

    Nice work!

    Ah! well then consider it a very big compliment (reaching that quality all by yourself is really hard!) :cool:

    Yeah, I really think this is shaping up nicely to be another indie success breakthrough.

    Visually / tone wise, it reminds me of a 'platform game version' of Sanitarium which is no bad thing as that's a great game.

    Looks cool, if I have one complaint it's that too much of the screen is dead space but I know you did that on purpose. I suppose I'm only making this 'complaint' because it might hurt your audience but who knows right?

    Good luck with that and hope you find much success :)

    Better than hoping your game proves everyone wrong exceeds expectations, right? :)

    4 years, off and on. There were a few long pauses at some points over those years though and most of the productivity was over the last two. Especially this year.

    I certainly have learned the age old lesson in starting small. All new projects will be MUCH smaller. I understand the benefits of working on casual titles, especially when going solo.
