Hello everyone!

Some of you may know me from my current game Quest For Humour, well a long time before
Quest For Humour I was working on my first game “Subject 80”, a first person puzzle
game/ shooter made in FPSC.

The game was completed last year and has kind of just sat around my computer gathering dust;
I did not release the game for 1 main reason: Fear! Now I know the game isn’t the
best thing I have ever made (That would be Quest For Humour!) and I realize it’s
very easy for any developer to dislike his project thinking that more could
have been done, and that was true, I hated that game! When I say hated, I
really do mean that, it sucked (In my eyes).

So after a whole year of it sitting on my hard drive & only a few people playing it (My
friends and family) I came to the conclusion that it isn’t such a bad game.
Sure, it was my first ever attempt at anything creative in the games industry,
sure it may be a “Portal rip off” & maybe that’s why Valve so kindly
discarded the idea of having it on steam (I know, a man can dream right!) But
then I stumbled across a website (Now taken down) where people were playing
Subject 80 and talking about it, it was a fan site! I could not believe my
eyes, sure it wasn’t a site with its own domain name or forums, it was a
blogger site, but none the less, it was still pretty awesome, even if it was a French

So I thought to myself, if the French like it, maybe the rest of the world will. So I gave
the game a little play through (3 hours) and was amazed at how awesome I made stacking
crates to make bridges so fun! I started to enjoy the game and forgot where I placed
certain things around the game universe.

I released the game about two weeks ago as a test subject (no pun!) to releasing it on here
and it did well. The community surrounding my various websites loved it, and I made
some good sales (It may be because its 75% off at the moment so I feel like I’m
having my own steam sale! It will probably stay at that price for ever; maybe
only go up a few pounds/dollars to make the sale seem legit)

After all the demo downloads and buys I can safely say that the game does deserve a bit
of fanfare, yeah it may be a box stacking mess of a half-life / portal rip off,
But by god does he do it so well! I’m very proud to present to the community
here, Subject 80, available to download the demo & buy. I hope you guys
love the game, I sure love the fact that people are loving the game. It’s nice
to know that the first game I ever made has turned out to be more than a hard
drive cluster.
