------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hey, some of you are probably wondering what has become of this project. Well, I'm still working on it, and I have an artist to work with me now!

For those of you who don't remember or just wondering who I am, I'm a composer making an interactive graphic novel using Construct 2. The project will have music, minigames, unlockable items that give more background on the story, extra scenes, multiple endings, and a menu and save system.

At the bottom is a PlayerAffinity.com interview that elaborates on everything you need to know about the project at this point.

Please like my facebook page to keep up to date with the progress of the comic. I will occasionally be posting pics and audio samples as the thing comes together. You can also check out the work-in-progress of the Construct 2 programming of the first chapter. Thanks!

Sounds interesting! Do you have any shots to post here? Am curious to see some of the panels after reading the descriptions on the demo, and to hear some of the music.

We're still working on overall style of the comic, though we have Ken fully designed, as you can see from the action shot (link below). I haven't started the music yet, but I am going to after this week. I'm pretty busy right now but should have more time next week to start composing the theme.

Here's a couple of Ken shots.

Hey guys. A couple updates. The main theme is completed (see below)! Also, I've created a Kickstarter project and anyone who contributes a little dough to the project gets at least their name in the credits. Other rewards for donating include a complete original soundtrack signed by me, the composer, and original artwork signed by Dave Gardiner, the artist.

I will post a link to the Kickstarter page once the project goes live. Until then, enjoy the music!

Ok, here's the Kickstarter page. There are several ways to support the project, from the lowest pledge level that guarantees free access to Way of the Sax and your name in the credits all the way to the highest that guarantees you a cameo in the comic! The goal is $500 which covers the cost of production including paying the artist. If you like the project and want to be a part of it, I'd appreciate your support. Thanks.

WIP (work in progress) has been updated. New additions include pseudo-3D motion and sfx. Please note, there is an audio glitch on Chrome that causes the first actual layout's music to start late (works on other browsers). Also, browsers except Chrome have an audio glitch that prohibit layout music to be paused. Enjoy.

(please remember to refresh your browser if this does not reflect changes; you may have to clear your browser cache on Chrome)

Please folks! I have less than 3 days left on my Kickstarter campaign!! I still need $200 of my $500 goal. Please help me spread the word so I can get some support. The WIP has been updated, and I am working on my first minigame.

Thanks.

First, I'd like to thank everyone who helped me up to this point, whether it was through coding problems or contributing to my successful Kickstarter campaign.

Now, I'd like to announce that the first minigame has been uploaded to the Scirra Arcade. Please let me know your thoughts! Here's the link...
