Oh hey! Welcome to the forum.

Just a couple of hours ago, I hadn't heard of the game, but between your Twitter account, website, the previews I've found, etc. I can't wait to buy Betram Fiddle (not a stalker, promise! ). I was waiting for Papers, Please to show up and buy both at the same time...but alas it looks like that'll be a worldwide release, so...yep.

Might as well set up an avatar for you, being the developer and all. If you want something other than your app icon, hit me up with a private message and I'll sort it out.

This will be one of my purchases this week along with Tales From the Borderlands and Papers, Please.

So many releases this month... So many sales last month... I feel dizzy.

I'll buy as soon as I finish The Last Door chapter 3.

On a second thought, I think I'm going to buy it now while it is still on sale

Wow! What a pleasant surprise! Saw the gameplay trailer. Very polished presentation with voice acting. Will give this game a try.

I played this entire thing yesterday. It's excellent and very funny. Had some real laugh out loud moments. The point and click gaming is nice and clear - nothing too obscure. The upside of that is that it never gets frustrating but I guess it also means that there isn't a huge amount of challenge. Not sure that matters because it's a lot of fun to play through. Really enjoyed it. Filled full of silly names, words and double entendres that are actually quite smart rather than juvenile.

Had one bug where a second Betram walked across the screen for no apparent reason. And the only other criticism I would probably have is that I would have preferred that the game focus a little more clearly on the goal of this particular episode, with the other elements being shifted into the background slightly. The reason being that I think it would have made the end of this that bit more satisfying while still being able to lead into episode 2, whenever that comes. The goal of this episode and what appears to be the overall series goal are tied together here so all it would have taken is more of a reminder that our primary goal is to get the dog.

Looking forward to more. Loved Poky Mary in particular.
