Oh, no ... more puns!!! :lol: That's all right. I like Corey and Lori's games, even with (or especially because of) the dreadful puns. ;)

Pun for all and all for pun! :P I'll give it a try. Thanks, Tawm. :)

Ok, so a bit of misdirection. I haven't "done" the soundtrack.....yet. ;) I am indeed the composer for the game though. They wanted to announce my being on the team today on my birthday which was nice. I even got a nice in-game styled avatar to parade around now!

The Summer Daze Kickstarter just closed a little under an hour ago and we made ~6k over our goal! We were worried there for a while but we made like $14k just yesterday alone and it spiked right up. People really came out to support it and we couldn't be more thrilled! We also made two stretch goals for mini games and extra in-game animations. We fell a bit short of our voice acting stretch goal though, but hey! Anything's possible :).

Well, now that I have finished GK2 ... I'm downloading it to try now! :) Will be back later to share my thoughts ... very excited! I'm as excited as pastry lover who thought the cat had done its business on his muffin but it turned out to be an extra-large blackberry. ;)

****** EDIT ******

Well, poot. :( I downloaded it, installed it, ran it ... and got a blank, black screen that didn't go anywhere. Nor could I alt+tab back to Windows and shut it down. So after waiting for two-three minutes with nothing happening, I did a hard reboot.

Of course I'm disappointed, but ... oh, well. *shrug* Things happen ...

That sucks. I haven't even tried the demo myself. Maybe leave a comment on the Kickstarter comments page and they can get you some tips?
