It recently came to my attention that the copyright status of a song featured in A Date in the Park had changed - so unfortunately I've had to remove the song from the game for the time being.
On the flip side, this also gave me the opportunity to rebuild the game in an updated version of the engine - meaning it should now run a little smoother on Steam and you can switch between full screen and windowed mode by pressing Alt+Enter.
Please note: the update may mean old save game files will not work anymore. If you were part way through the game you may need to start over - apologies!! This is due to engine limitations that mean save games can be broken when the game is updated.
Thanks for your support! Shaun Cloak and Dagger Games
Football Game has won Best Music and Sound at the AGS Awards 2018! Thanks to everyone who cast their vote.
It was lovely news, I'm so happy with the soundtrack by Jupiter-C - they really did do an amazing job. Other games in this category included the likes of Unavowed and Lamplight City - some seriously strong competition!
If you enjoyed the music please do consider picking up the soundtrack. It directly supports the musicians and hopefully will tempt them back to make music for our games again in the future :)
And if you haven't played Football Game - do check it out :)
