... and some explanations about the silence.
It's that time, finally.
I have the great pleasure to release the first public Early Access of Forbidden Trip, the final name of Cadaver Party Project! It's a big milestone for me. It will be available for Xmas (GMT+1)!
Forbidden Trip E.A. contains a big portion of the full adventure.
E.A. means there will be some bugs and unpolished, unfinished content but I believe this is a solid and safe base. Present content may also change.
This big archive (the "1.0") will be updated with smaller patches containing hotfixes, new content, maps, etc.
I will be able to work on the first updates in mid-January.
Give me your feedback!
I will keep an eye on your feedback, it is very important.
Be sure that I read all messages, always, even if I cannot answer them all.
So don't be shy! To send feedback you can use the form in the Contact tab of my website.
So... why was it so long? What happened? (Optional to read.)
I'll be very honest here: this project has been developed under complicated circumstances/mental states. The only important thing you need to know is that I'm fine, happy and managed to find balance since April 2018.
The project started in the beginning of 2013, when I got the idea after playing Corpse Party games. I decided to create a map inspired by one chapter of Book of Shadows but it quickly became a bigger, personal, original project.
Progress was good, a temporary demo got released in 2015, the private beta was going well thanks to the good help of my testers... until the middle of 2017, where things started to stall completely. That's when I started hitting rock bottom in my life. I spare you the details.
I changed myself for good in March 2018 and things started to be a lot better the very next month. As I said a little earlier, I'm all good right now. It took a lot of years but well! Thanks to those who were patient with me IRL and online.
After that, development got more or less halted in 2018~2019, because of work (that's simple). My contract finished in the end of October and I resumed the development the next day! I worked a lot on Forbidden Trip during nearly two months to make a public Early Access for you stalkers. So grab it!
Right now, I just want to complete this project and move on new things.
If you try it, I can't wait to hear your feedback, good or bad, it doesn't matter as long as you explain everything to help me improve!
A wonderful end of the year, stalkers, take care of yourself and your loved ones.
Sincere, best wishes to all of you.
