It’s official: American Angst is out today on Steam (follow @m3g1dd0 on Twitter)! Really looking forward to hear what you think of the game!

This is how we got here:

Five months ago, scouring the internet for a tool which would help me create a gamebook akin to the Choose your own Adventures I loved in my youth, I discovered Twine by Chris Klimas.

Twine, in short, is a game engine for choice-based games, or interactive fiction. Employing HTML, CSS and JavaScript, you are able to create a story where the player decides how the story plays out. Which is a good thing, because I have a grip of HTML and CSS, as well as basic knowledge of JavaScript.

This discovery opened up a whole new universe for me: There is whole scene of people devoted to creating and playing text adventures! In the next hours, I explored the Interactive Fiction Database, the IF archive, checked out Choice of Games and other developers, devoured Emily Short’s blog and subscribed to Planet IF’s feed; but more than anything else, I studied everything Twine related.

As we're finishing up beta-testing and release day is drawing ever closer, I am happy to announce that the final game trailer is upon us.

You can watch it on the store page for American Angst or watch the Trailer on Youtube. Hope you enjoy it.

As far as beta-testing is concerned, I am positive we've found all major and minor bugs.

Biggest take away for me was the fact I realized the combat wasn't complex enough (basically, it was just a straight clicky grind which I found unsatisfying). So I reworked the system and included another tactical factor which should make it more enjoyable.

The next step will be including the bonus material in the game as well as the epilogue.

Really looking forward to October 26th!

As the storefront is a tad diffuse on the exact date – "October" can basically mean anything – I wanted to shed light on the upcoming release:

I am planning to release American Angst on Thursday, October 26th. Currently, I am finishing the last branch, meaning the Alpha will be ready by the weekend. I will be pushing the Beta to my testers next week.

Really looking forward to publishing the game!
