  1. WELL HMMMMMMMMMMMMMM I can neither confirm nor deny that we are shipping with loose files for both Lua and ChatScript, essentially exposing the entire game to You, The Community. Anyway we're doing our final testing now so it should be showing up on steam/humble before tooooooooo much longer. Has this 10 day game jam turned into a 14 day thing ? Did you guys stick in any new features/responses/recordings/polish in the last 4 days? Just bug fixes?
  2. Man. I voted for No More McDonald's but I'm so glad this game is being made! It's a really intriguing concept: dig in to meaningful conversations with little buds with odd traits. I can imagine this working as a full game. It would be more like a Choose Your Own adventure where depending on the choices you make, you could end up in different scenarios leading to different endings. You could also allow some exploration where you can walk around with your best bud and they could make comments about certain areas. For example, you could come across an abandoned tire factory and you could listen to the buds talk about their experiences with it or stories they heard about it. You could ask different buds if they know anything cool to check out and they could take you to different places or tell you where to go. Another interesting scenario would be if the buds start disappearing; maybe you don't notice at first because there are so many; maybe you could find where they've been taken and talk to some villain/free them/avenge them. You could have different random events that could occur to add to the replayability: storm damaging the house, snow making the buds cold so you try to get them all in the house and you freeze to death yourself, a new bud arrives and is estranged by the current buds, etc.. You could even add Steam Workshop support and let people publish more content in the form of new things to look at in the world or new best buds with custom voice over work. The game would be time consuming to make mostly for the incredible amount of script and voice over work that it would require to make it work. I think it could find its audience though if it was compelling enough, especially if it had mechanisms to be updated over time with new content.
