Thank you djaydino!

I am staying away from kickstarter / indiegogo for now,
planned to release as Early Access to get it funded further.

Nice!

A lot of improvement in animations.

Maybe add some animations when asking an id (AI taking it from his pocket to give to the police)

The particles of the fire extinguisher don't look good to me.

The interaction when hitting things look good and are a big + to a game like this.

Are you planning to add voices?

Keep up the great work :D i can't wait to play this ^^

Thanks djaydino!

AI giving ID animation is in my library actually, will have to plan some time to add these little features as they got missed when creating the overall systems.

About fire extinguisher I agree with you, those are default water particles and the extinguisher should have some sort of foams coming out. for now I’m happy that it works  :D

Voices… I wish! Not sure how to plan that as then I would need many different voices saying the same phrases for various situations. I am considering to put my voice as placeholders for now, but I have to cross the personal barrier hearing myself in audio + foreign english ;D

Hi,
Maybe when you start to have some income on it you can add them then.
(and prepare coding already so it is easy to implement)
For me that makes it a lot more fun to play a game.

on fiver you can find a lot of people doing voice overs for decent prices.

and if you want i can do some :D
i am also not native English but i can try :)
or i can do some in Dutch and/or German :D

I'm happy to announce the Flashing Lights are now in cooperation with Excalibur Games! Their core focus is within simulations and they have worked with some great games including Jalopy, Euro Truck Simulator, Flight Simulator and Train Simulator. With their help we hope to deliver a higher quality game than I had originally planned. With their support and the community's involvement, I feel that we will make a great game together!

Wow! Nice!
This game indeed has a great potential to become a big game and would be very hard to do alone.
Good luck in the Big League!  8) 8) 8)
