Poor Phil. You know you can’t have beards in the U.S. military, right? (Leaving it as an unlockable option in the game…thank you wonderful person who suggested it!)
Anyway, the status of this game is: there’s still a lot of work to do, but IT WILL GET FINISHED! I uploaded a short build for Kickstarter backers and for EVERYONE ELSE: I’ll have a public demo later this month that introduces all the boys.
So far the build’s been getting good feedback. SO MANY THANKS to the backers for their valuable advice, suggestions, fearless bug testing, and overall awesomeness.
Now for some much overdue Q&A after the cut! (Sorry I’ve been so slow with these responses! I spent the last two months trying to get as much of the game done as possible, and sometimes that cuts back on updates.)
This is where I get really high-tech and show you how I use the most advanced technology to fix a part of Coming Out On Top that’s been giving me problems. (See above.) BTW, I highly recommend index cards to writers. Though I don’t recommend stepping on push pins and doing the dance of pain in view of your puzzled dogs (unless you’re into that.)
Progress report: A test version is going to the Kickstarter forum on April 1st. By that point I have should have a good idea of what I’ve got left to do!
Some Q&A below!
oh come on, Mark and Ian are totally singing "Wannabe" Ala the spice girls.
It’s been a long week of fixing, polishing, and rewriting stuff. I’m really pleased how things are looking, though progress is slower than I’d like. Anyway, here are some answers to your questions below the cut!
Hello, hello players. Sorry for the prolonged silence!
For those of you who haven’t seen it yet, this was the last Kickstarter update: (has some closer-to-final designs for Brad, Ian, and Jed)
BTW, if you’re worried if I’m alive, the place I post most frequently is Twitter. I don’t like to talk about scenes I’m working on though. I try to avoid discussing story or characters because I don’t want to rob you of the experience when you play it. (Ever watch a movie trailer and feel like you’ve watched the entire film? Yeah…)
In the mean time, let me answer some Q&As below the cut.

All developers should have that tattooed somewhere, if they don’t already.
More questions below the fold.
Will you be able to control whether the guys have facial hair and body hair separately - like A hairy chest but no beard? And will you be able to make some guys hairy and others hairless in the same game?
Yes and yes! The beard and the body hair is a separate toggle for each of the main guys (including Mark). So you can have Ian with a beard (and no body hair) or the reverse, while you keep Alex totally hairy, etc.
Seek ye answers below the belt!
