This time we decided to write a post which contains answers to frequently asked questions about our games, etc.
Q: When will you release a new game?
A: We plan to release two-three game each month. Though we have a work schedule we can’t always predict the date of releasing a new game because the time it takes depends also on 3rd parties such as translators, voice actors, etc.
Q: Can’t you make your games longer?
A: Creating long games takes long time. Since we have to publish at least two games a month we can’t always afford the development of a long game. We will try to develop longer-than-usual games once every few months (like Vortex Point 4).
Q: Can’t you make your games harder?
Yes we can. But first of all harder games are also inherently longer, which is a problem, as already explained. In addition we want to keep things between easy and medium difficulty, because we believe most of you will not sit for 40 minutes in front of the screen trying to solve a game. Also, we don’t think most of you will sit with a pen and paper to write clues like people used to do back in the ’90s. One last comment on this topic, every now and then we get comments on most of our games from people saying they’re too hard, meaning if we’ll make games even harder some of our players won’t be able to solve them, this is a two-edged sword.
(If we’re mistaking, please say so in the comments below).
Q: I have an idea for a game!
A: That wasn’t a question, but anyway – you are more than welcome to send it to us. Please try to write in as much details as you can: To which places the main character can go, with which items the player can interact, etc. You can use the contact form to send us emails regarding anything you have in mind.
Q: Can you put my name in a game?
A: We can use your names for a small part character, small stickers or small signs in the game.
The main character’s name and the bigger signs/posters are reserved for those who have donated us or helped us by translating the game to other languages.
Go now to the CARMELO’s NAMES WIZARD page and write your name in the comments. We will use it someday in the Future.
Q: What is your next game about?
We have a pile of papers filled with drawings and ideas we need to process. For the near future we are planning to focus on our games-series, like Dakota Winchester, Vortex Point and Into the Wild, and also developing a new series which we will tell you more about in our following posts.

That’s it, we think we’ve covered it all. If you have any more questions then please write them down in the comments below.
