The Shadow in the Cathedral, Textfyre's second game, is now available for purchase on The first episode in the Klockwerk Series; Shadow begins a deep steampunk adventure in a world of clocks, gears and ornithopters. You are Wren, 2nd assistant clock-polisher. It's not a very important job, but it offers a place to sleep and bread to eat. You just wish you could someday make it to 1st assistant clock-polisher. Before too long you're trying to solve the greatest mystery in the history of St. Philip.

There is enough here for me to be interested in it, but I would like to see more. I gave an upvote with the hopes of it continuing to show improvements.

I had planned on working on a "prettier" UX. It's on the list of things to do. I'm also working on online versions that function entirely in a browser with local storage for save files.

a plug from zarf is more than enough for me to vote on this - that this looks really awesome is only frosting on the cake

I played Shadow in the Cathedral a while back and it's a really good game with great worldbuilding. Unfortunately the Greenlight page in general and the video in particular are doing a really bad job of selling it - sorry Dave.

I take it you'll be providing a launcher for the game, not expecting people to manually run the game in an interpreter? Any chance of demoing the launcher in the video instead of going through a bunch of Explorer windows? And maybe also pull some quotes from some of the lovely reviews you got when you first launched the game?

Voted yes, though I have the same concern as with the Jack Toresal game, about the presentation. This looks like it's in a browser; will the look be updated for gaming?
