Man-Storm and the Manhood of Might demo dropping this week.

Good news. We managed to finish beta-testing our game ahead of schedule and we're actually taking this time to add some extra story graphics to the game \(^o^)/

We're shooting for either a Thursday or Friday drop date. Some of our 2D interface graphics are not finished so we're waiting to see if we can get better versions before we drop the demo.

A few head's up. This game is built on a newer engine than what was used for Meat Log Mountain and Second Date. The big upside is the text kerning problem is fixed and it supports many new features like image maps for a better experience.

However, in order to run the game you will need to enable an extra setting in Windows under Region and Language. You will need to set Language for non-Unicode programs to Japanese. It will require a reboot. Basically, it tells windows if it receives non standard text encoding that it should treat it like it's Japanese.We've tested this with people using English and various European language copies of Windows 7 and Windows 8 and it has not affected their Windows use or interface. You can always turn it back English or whatever your native language is if a problem does arise. We're including a screenshot from Win7 so you can see where it's located.


Secondly, we aimed BIG this time. The game's resolution is 1500 x 900 and is designed to be played in a window on today's current crop of HD+ widescreen monitors. The game will upscale if you want it to, however, it cannot downscale. So, if your monitor has an older resolution of say 1280 x 1024 it will not display properly.

Game makes fulls use of music and sound effects too.

We'll have a more detailed FAQ once the demo drops.
