Well... I actually did it: INSTABOUGHT!
Dear TookiPalooki, your game about a ghost chicken and a spaghetti cat has the honor of being the first game I've bought on release day since...... Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker, I believe (wow, that was 16 years ago... I feel old).
Not only that, but you're also dethroning Morrowind when it comes to the most money I've spent on a single game from a digital-store (that'd be $6.69 for Morrowind when I joined GOG three-and-a-half years ago). Even with over 400 games in my GOG library, I tend to almost always be a strict discount-watcher (ie. a total cheapskate), usually trying to wait for discounts of at least 80%, whenever possible. But hey, with an insanely-massive backlog and very limited budget, it's an understandable position, right? Also GOG is an enabler by offering great sales; it's totally not my fault! (...okay maybe it's a little bit my fault :P)
And you know what? Point-and-click adventures aren't even really my thing, normally... unless they have brilliant humor along the lines of Monkey Island, then they can pull me in, sure. Maybe Chook & Sosig's humor is also that amazing? I don't know, I haven't played it yet, but maybe. All I know for sure is...
...those gorgeous backgrounds are FREAKING FABTACULAR! The artstyle in general feels in a lot of ways like a cross between Adventure Time and... spiffy-keen.com? (when this game was announced in a "Coming soon" post on GOG last month, I almost-seriously wondered if spiffy-keen's artist had moved to New Zealand and changed her name to Sarah, lol)
In all seriousness, though, it'll probably be a long time before I actually get around to playing this game. My backlog is insane, and also, I uh.... I have Windows XP. I'm not even sure if I can run anything from GOG anymore, for the time being, at least while still stuck with this ancient computer... ;_; That's just a temporary concern though. The important thing is that I would have felt guilty if I didn't support this release with a purchase after being as impressed by the artstyle as I was last month, seemingly coming out-of-nowhere. Those BACKGROUNDS, man.... those BACKGROUNDS. :O~~~~~~~~
...also my first GOG-forum post. Hi GOG people~
