Kickstarter coming in August of 2020!

I've been toiling away at this game for months, but I'm not great at self-promotion, so I don't really release gameplay videos or show off progress very often. Meanwhile, we're very close to being ready for publication.  I'll be releasing a teaser trailer shortly to try and build interest. I'll actually be using this forum to help me select the best trailer.

I figure it's best to start a thread to talk about it, since it's pretty near to release. Since I don't have the trailer ready, here's a video of a couple minutes of one of my favorite sections.

Looks neato, and I dig the creaky leather sound when you swing on the whip.

Looks very nice! Will the Hu Card version have passwords to save progress?

Unfortunately no, only temporary saves (unless you have a CD unit or TurboBooster Plus!). It's about 150ish bytes to save your progress. I did consider it, but I didn't think it'd be feasible for me to write an algorithm to compress the data into password form.

Super cool!  Maybe this means Michirin will return to the forums too with her PCE covers.

Woot!  When you expecting the huey version to be in hand?

It's really hard to predict. Retrostage printed the card plastic using SLA instead of FDM, and is really concerned about the tolerances. He's been working with the mold makers to figure out what his tolerances are, so they match the variances in hucards. That's pretty important so these cards don't damage TG16s.  As far as my part, I'm really just supplying feedback, community connections... and cash, when it comes time to get the injection mold.

Turboxray has been hard at work at his Deflemask sound engine, and it's coming along great. I'm kind of in a holding pattern until he converts it into a HuC library, however.

The Sega Genesis versions are my next priority, so it's good there isn't a whole lot required of me to keep the HuCard in progress.
