Cryptozookeeper on Desura

Post by Ice Cream Jonsey » Fri May 30, 2014 1:19 pm

Welcome! I am starting a thread as I attempt to get Cryptozookeeper on Desura. One of the first tasks for this is getting the graphics correct for the game's presentation. To that end I enlisted the wonderfully talented Jen Pattison. She put together this scene of Vest and Grimloft creating cryptids in the lab, which I adore.

Whatever you paid for that, it was worth it.

That's awesome.

She is amazing, right? She totally re-inspired my desire to release this game to a larger audience.

So there is a Cryptozookeeper page on Desura, but they haven't authorized it yet. I'll bump when it's available.

It has been two months and I haven't recorded video of Cryptozookeeper. I am the worst. (Actually, I haven't had time.)

Roody very helpfully fixed the problem with the game where you had to do something like:

>talk to Igor
(What topic?)
>boobs

It now works like this:

>talk to Igor
What topic? 1. boobs 2. lethargy 3. money
>1

A lot less typing.

This enhanced version will be the one going up on the various sites whenever I can finish the trailer.

You know Desura is no more, right?
