Finally made it here!
My name is Wim, I'm 35, living in Belgium and working as a store manager (looking to change that soon though and get back into writing/reviewing/anything more creative soon
I'll be in the minority here, but I never was a big fan of the LucasArts adventures. Now don't get me wrong, I liked them, but my heart was always more into the Sierra adventure games (King's Quest, Gabriel Knight, Larry series, Space Quest, the whole lot, even their criticised FMV games like Phantasmagoria). I literally played the crap out of them growing up and picked up a lot of English from those, especially the older ones that used a text parser interface. Still enjoy playing adventure games to this very day, so that alone would have brought my attention to Gibbous. I also have a very strong interest in Gothic fiction (even wrote my uni dissertation on Dracula
), so yeah, an adventure game based on the work of Lovecraft, that was a second box ticked as to why I'd enjoy this game. Then there was the excellent demo, loved the art work, the writing, the humour and the atmosphere in it, and so I was sold and backed my very first Kickstarter with Gibbous!
And then I met the Stuck in Attic crew during the live streams and was immediately convinced these guys were going to do one awesome job, so upped my pledge to include the physical release of the game (big, big collector of physical big box pc game releases from the 90s, one of my hobbies, so looking forward to adding Gibbous to the collection
). And here we are on the forum now, I'm really looking forward to the coming year to see the game evolve from concept to finished release version together, and in the mean time of course hang out with you all in this place here!
