Hello everyone! Something amazing happened today! Laura Kate Dale, a games journalist and all around awesome person who I've been following for years now, featured Weird and Unfortunate Things are Happening on her 25(ish) Most Anticipated Indie Games of 2020!!!!



The article exists both in written form, which you can read here, and in video form, which you can watch here!!!

I am so thankful, and happy, and oddly panicking, that my game's gotten this much attention! A huge thanks to Laura for including the game, and I'm so so SO glad she enjoyed the demo so much!!! A big hello to anyone that found the game from the article/video, tho most of you are probably on itch.io since that's where the link goes XD

But while that's the mindblowing news for today, it's not all that's been going on. I've been hard at work and have finished the Expanse Temple. Let's bring out everyone's favorite nautilus!!!



It's LAST DUNGEON TIME!!! (Okay, technically it's "story-driven combat-free segment that I didn't put on the chart and LAST DUNGEON TIME!!!") I'm getting very close to the finish line, but I've still got a ways to go, mainly because I went somewhat over-ambitious for the final area and its got a lot of tilesets that I'm working on XDXD

At any rate, I'm so excited and pumped and motivated, but I'm also freaking out from the positive press! Thanks so much for joining me on this crazy journey, everyone, and I'll keep working to get closer and closer to that finish line and get this game out sometime soon this year!

This news is neither weird, nor unfortunate! GO UNI!

*cheers*
Congrats on getting noticed. This game is on my anticipation list for 2020 too.

Are you going to do the ending first and then the super dungeon? And is the final dungeon gonna be like the final one from Luxaren Allure?
That's super cool for you, Uni! Congrats!

Thanks! And yeah, now that I think about it, I'll probably end up doing the ending first and then tackle the bonus dungeon, even tho I put them in the opposite order on the chart XD;

As for the final dungeon, yeah, I seem to be unable to do a small simple final dungeon, but this time it'll be connected via warps you can activate to a hub to both keep players from being overwhelmed and to make it feel more interconnected and easier to navigate (I hope). I also hope that the way I have everything spaced out will make it feel less grueling for people who didn't like Luxaren's big final dungeon.

Thanks so much, Liberty! :DDD I spent most of today freaking out about it XDXD Hopefully the final game can somewhat live up to the hype!

What. Did we team up with Dottie and I didn't know??!?

:lol:

...

But seriously, that's a great review. Makes me want to update the TVTropes more, so even more info is out there on this awesome game!

non human creatures that find it fun to screw with the population for their own amusement.

Emphasis mine. Wow. That's some hilariously non-spoilery understatement. So low-key Dramatic Irony or whatever with what's really going on.

Well, unity's "oddly panicking", is both weird and unfortunate, so that's that, satisfied.

Anticipated... indie games, in general?! My word, congratulations Unity! :D Judging from even the assets shown in the image, you've got some competition but I'm thankful this game stands among them. Also the nautilus for game creation steps seems creative and legit, heheh.
