Thank you very much. The game comes out in late June or early July, and I'll post an announcement here when it's out. Thanks to the SFML team for making this possible.

I've focus-grouped the game for maximum tear extraction. No, I'm kidding, my sense of humor is too cynical. Still, I mean, there's a handful of love stories in the game...

To anyone who signed up for a beta key 1 or 2 days ago and hasn't gotten it yet: check your Spam folder. I've heard of at least one email with a Steam key that got caught in the recipient's spam filter -- sorry for the trouble!

Might have misinterpreted the video, but are you able to write something during the conversation sequence, i.e. while your character is busy? If not, I'd say it would be a good idea to hide the input bar or somehow make it obvious that no input is possible.

Yeah, this is something I think about. There is a small indication in the absence of the text cursor, i.e. "> talk to dr feng _" becomes "> talk to dr feng". In gameplay, I think the player "feels" this strongly enough since they're staring at the cursor as they type. I might add something else if I get feedback about it from playtesters.

Hey all, K Station is now out on Steam!

If you like adventure games and innovative storytelling, please check it out.

Thanks to the SFML team for making this possible. I found SFML sensible and straightforward to use, and I mean that as a big compliment.

Awesome!
Sorry that I haven't been able to bring in more testing results. Last few weeks were a bit filled with university work and now I'm stuck doing my annual army service. :D
Plus your mails still get marked as spam for me, so I haven't seen the last one in time.

UGH. Thanks for letting me know. If you do have time to play, a (positive?) review would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your help so far.

Thank you. Yeah, I'm tentatively planning Mac/Linux ports, but to be honest it depends if there are enough sales on Windows to justify the effort. If I get enough sales in my first month, I'd try to have ports out in mid-to-late July...
