Who are you? RPG Background? Anything else I should know?

I'm Geoff. I made ACotGK. The first computer RPG I played all the way was The Bard's Tale (the original one).

What are you playing ACotGK on? How far have you gotten? What kind of character/party are you playing?

I've played ACotGK on a Windows PC, a MacBook Pro, an iPad mini, and an iPhone 11. I've played all the way through the game multiple times. My favorite party was a High Magic wizard, finishing with Glorwaen, Ushug, and Thalia as companions.

How's ACotGK working? How did installation go? Any bugs, crashes, or other problems?

It's working pretty well, I think! Lots of bugs, crashes, and other problems, but hopefully I've fixed most of them. I have noticed that in the Giant Step pass, the ravine area, I sometimes get a door in the middle of the floor, instead of in the wall like it should be.

What did you think? Any comments about gameplay? Difficulty level? Interface? Story?

I think the game is great! I'm worried that I'm so used to playing the game, that what I think is moderately challenging is insanely difficult. Pathfinding goes a little wonky sometimes but I can fix it by clicking again so I guess that’s OK. The story is fine though mostly I am interested in progressing my characters.

Keep up the good work Merry Prankster Games!
