You guys have been helping me a lot lately with various problems related to developing this game and I am very grateful. Therefore I wanted to show you my progress so far. It's supposed to be an adventure game based on Estonian national epic. Most of the graphics are drawn by my brother but we are having trouble getting character sprites so we are currently using a couple of hexen sprites as place holders. The game uses Allegro5.0.5 and Lua52a.

The style's cool. I like the generous use of effects, and, obviously the backgrounds are very nice.

He's not peeing :D, but the sound is a bit wrong yes. He is supposed to pour the water bucket into the cauldron.

Completion percentage is hard to measure but I can say I am almost satisfied with the engine so it's pretty much adding content from now on (scripts, gfx and sfx).

The first demo release date is before Christmas and we are hoping to get the first chapter done by then. Next release date is the end of January when we must have proper ending.

Well done, looks nice.
Reminds me of the old Gargoyle games on the ZX Speccy, Heavy on the Magick, or Tir Na Nog, or maybe Graftgolds, DragonTorc of Avalon. Infact they probably have nothing in common with your game, but from that video that was the impression I got of it. Hope you remain inspired to finish and polish the game off.

I would really like to test this game(if it were in a language I could understand :p)
It looks good ^^

Minor issue:
When switching screens, the music kinda breaks suddenly... Maybe you could make it fade out?
