Needless to say, I am just pleased as pineapple punch. But not only that, a few daring souls have even Let's Played the game! For anyone who hasn't tried it yet, this video will give you a good idea what to expect from Résumé:




The above video is by the kindly RockLeeSmile and is on his Indie Impressions channel :)

When I made the game, I figured only a few people might play it, and it was mostly an experiment for myself. The fact that so many have picked it up is just fantastic ! Thanks, everybody :)

(If you play the game and review it or LP it, let me know so I can tell people! I only find out about these things if you tell me or if I catch it on Google somehow...)

Gah! I didn't realize the post CSS was so bad... I'll fix it!

(Fixed! Thanks for the heads up :D If you see anything else that looks really bad, please let me know!)
Oh boy. Interviews. This should be fun.

Now the one thing that will sell it to me: can we PLAY as Severus Snape?

Severus Snape may or may not be involved in one form or another in this game... but no, he's not a playable character :P
I'm putting this game on my "must-play" list. Looks like a lot of effort has gone into making this game, and it'll most likely have a lot of interesting gameplay by the looks of it. It's always good to encourage Unity games on this site. Will try to play within the next couple of weeks.

Hey, thanks a lot, benny!

I'm gonna be uploading an update / bugfix sometime tonight, so if you're interested in the game I'd hold off until then - it'll be labeled "version 1.1".

Gay means happy. Can't fault anyone for wanting to be happy.

Congratulations on this game being featured. It sure deserves it. I'd be proud to be one of the original supporters of this game, but in reality I'm more proud that you're coming into your own as a full-fledged force to be reckoned with, which is just fantastic. Here's to our hopeless polyanna!

Thanks, Cash :) I really appreciated the review! It's great when people spend the time to write feedback and, y'know, it's super satisfying to know when your ideas hit home.
