After many years, my first proper Steam release has happened!
THE LONGING is a weird mix of adventure- and idle game, where you play a lonely shadow creature that has to awaken its king...after 400 days. It's nominated for an IGF award and has already sold over 15,000 copies on Steam, which is more than I ever expected.
I'm glad the game is finally out, for it feels like it took an eternity to make. But after all, it's a game about waiting, loneliness and patience, so it was a good fit.
Now I'm back in the world of the living and will start to work on new projects. The pilot for my ultra-sad web series FIELDS OF RAPE will be released this year... the last entry in my "depression era" for now.

Congrats on the release! :D
Glad it's made.Looks unique.
I remeber that you started working process in the end of 2018, it was higtly promissing.
2019 was for me IRL, 365 days of waiting for end of duty. Waiting and patience but thank to my friends/comrades I was not alone. I rarely saw the sun.
Sure, I can say that this game have a great expirience in it.
Congratulations! I think it is success!
Thanks man! I actually started out in 2014, but I had many breaks inbetween. Were you in military service?
Sure, Russian SRF - all I can say.
BTW I saw that you joined Seufz studio with your friends ( I think that Benedikt and Stefan are knew you for a long time ).
Are you made it together or it was idea of one single person?
It was my personal passion project, which I started alone. They helped me a lot though and I also got assistance from several other people along the way.
Thats nice! You have a spirit of real independent game developer. Keep it up!
Woah that's awesome! Very cool idea, I'll check it out. I wonder how it will end :o
that depends on your choices...
What are the odds I find the Newgrounds account of the creator behind the game while I'm waiting for the 2 hour door to open.
