I loved it! can't wait for the full version!
I'm having trouble viewing the demo, and I really want to see it. What are the right steps in doing so? Can I view it through Windows Movie view?
Click "I am Over 18".Click the green "Download" button.It will start downloading the game file to your computer (where the file ends up depends on your settings).It will take a minute or more depending on your connection speed.Once it's downloaded, double click the file. It will expand from its compressed version. You may have to tell your computer where to save it. Save it where you usually save programs.You can double click the "Coming Out On Top Demo.exe" file (Windows) within the folder to run it. The Mac version shows up as an icon that you can double click.
Yeah, I did all that. But when I click on everything, it says a zip file cannot be played on a WMV. I'll have to keep playing with it.
Hmmm...right click on the file, go to Properties -> General and change the type of application that runs a .ZIP file. It sounds like your computer is trying to open .zip files with the wrong program (Windows Movie)instead of WinRAR or another Zip program. The other possibility is that you might not have a ZIP program to begin with. You might need to download a ZIP program like WinRAR, then try opening the game file again.
I loved this demo and am so excited for it to be a full game! The character's behaviors are spot on. good job all!
Thank you Nicholas!
Your demo isn't working. When I try to open it, I get an error message that says file is invalid or corrupt. When I try to extract it, it says file is empty.
I'm not sure what to tell you. I checked it right now and it seemed okay on this end. Did you try downloading the whole thing again? It might not have downloaded all the way. Sorry for your frustration...I'm really trying to figure out what might be wrong here.
I downloaded it three separate times. Twice on Chrome and the last time on IE. Same message every time after fully downloading every byte.
Hopefully someone reading this can give some ideas? I've never encountered a problem like this before. I'll try to figure out something in the meantime.
i love it. cant wait for the full version. do i have to buy the full version? anyway thank you for making this game. somehow Mark is just like me, insecure, shy and gay. :) im enjoy every time i play it. the story line is superb. okay, i think it enough.
If you back my Kickstarter right now, you get the full game for 10 bucks USD. (When it comes out retail, it's going to be at least $18, now that it's getting more stuff thrown in. XD)
I love the twist you gave in this. I burst out laughing. i cant wait to see the finished product!(sorry i accidentally posted int he wrong section earlier)
will there be a slimmer swimmer type(ottermode) of guy in the final release? :o
I'm trying to figure out how to add additional characters right now. There will most likely be something in the additional stretch goals I'll be putting up soon.
Quite nice, I recommend it. Already joinned the kickstarter.
Thank you Rodrigo!
How do you open the game in Ubuntu Lenux?
I'm not that familiar with Ubuntu, but I believe you need to unpack the file and run the shell script "Coming Out on Top.sh".
If you're still having problems, shoot me an email!
That was great! Very well written. Can't wait for the full version!
Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed it!
Hello! I love the game! Is there any way to get the older version with the full storyline with Alex? I really want to try that one out.
Email me at the address on the top left.
I can't download, it keeps giving a 404 :(
Hopefully it's working now?
I just played the demo and I have to say that I LOVE IT :DI liked the storyline and the plot twist that came along with it.I can't wait to buy the full version once it comes out and I have already recommended this to one of my friends.To Kar Morrison (who asked about opening it in Ubuntu Linux), just extract the complete archive to your home folder (or wherever you feel like extracting it), open the folder, and open "Coming Out on Top Demo.sh" and it should run then. If a dialog box comes up and asks you how you want to open it, click on run and the game should start up.
Thank you canadabound! And thank you so for the assistance with Linux. XD

Very enjoyable - I actually went back and retried most of the decisions to see what happened.I have played a couple of games like this before but I find that they err 'cut to the sex' to quickly. I'd definately buy this just to see how the chase for the professor and Ian goes.Many thanks for the preview
i loved it so much! cant wait for the full game! ps: i noticed someone asked you for the older full story with alex....may i have it too? i will email you :3
Hi! I just managed to download your demo and play it and I want to say that so far it's great!I would really like to donate to the Kickstarter project but I wasn't sure if there was a way to pay with Paypal? Since I don't have a credit card. And if there isn't, can I donate directly to a Paypal account instead? Thanks in advance. :)
Thank you for checking out the demo, anon! I'll try to figure out the paypal situation in the next few days and put up a post about it! You could also email me if you like and I'll alert you when I've setsomething up.
Fantastic! Since I can't login to my email on this computer, I'll email you around Wednesday after the Xmas period is over.Good luck with everything! :D
Oh man, I dunno if you are the same person I messaged, but I can't use Paypal until after the Kickstarter closes (due to certain rules Paypal has.) I'll see if I can set up a Paypal in January for additional pledges. In the meantime, I dunno if this helps anybody else, but there are additional ways to use Kickstarter using a prepaid Mastercard.See section on "I don't have a credit card, how can I donate?"http://www.bigfinishgames.com/project-fedora-kickstarter-payment-guide
I just love it! I think that the picture scenarios are great it gives something extra, But I really could take that heart off in the XXX scenes sorry, even with the censored version it's great!
Thank you Carlos! Huh, I thought everybody loves hearts... XD
by the way add me for the beta testing LOL
Does it work with Chrome OS?
I'm pretty sure it doesn't. Chrome OS is a web application OS, and the game is not a web-based program. :0(
Aw. my chromebook brings nothing but sadness....
I feel ya. This is how I felt for the longest time when I had an older Macbook. All the games I wanted were for the PC.
Obscura...Loved it. no really! Funny,and while the teacher/student relationship is a little cliche it was a(well shit,God I know I´m gay and all,but WTF!?) I´m one of the few brazilians(or the only one to really to really look in here) but well,consequences be damned Count on my two cents for this game!
This demo is actually amazing. So well put together and a brilliant storyline. How much are you thinking of selling the full product for and when are you thinking of releasing the full product? Either way, im really looking forward to it. Fantastic job so far!
Thanks! I'm planning for a release date sometime in December 2013. Something between 18-25 USD. If you sign up for the mailing list (you can send me an email at obscurasoft (at) gmail.com if you're interested, and I'll put you on the list. I will offer preorders at a discount. And no hearts in the demo. :D
Also, will all of the art be uncensored in the full game or will they have the heart censors like in the demo?
-Kazacune: Dear God!!! I....I have soo many feels for this its not even funny!!! and its not even done!!! the Demon was wicked cool!!! ive played like 3 times now haha xD I am sooooo head over heels for Ian not gonna lie, he is going to be the one for Mark xD!!! "Oh and Mark, the offer to clean my dishes is still on the table" xD!! Gah!! head over heels I tell you!! and its only his Demo version, cant wait to see Ian on the full version =D and as soon as I get my paycheck totally helping you out =D thats a must!! thanks so much for this =D
how to remove heart sign over the naked things...
You can't. If you go on Kickstarter you have to be careful of what kind of nudity is shown.The complete game will have them removed though!
Hi! I just wanted to say that I loved this! Its awesome and I can't wait for the full game to be out! Greetings from Argentina!!!
Hi, obscura and guys/gals~~So, I`m new here, I downloaded and all, but I believe I have a Windows probelm when I try to open the .exe. It`s something related to C++ Runtime Error. I searched all over the internet for an answer... nothing, can anyone help me? PS: So far of what I`ve read the game seems awesome, and I can`t wait to play the demo/fullversion. Thak`yall!
Ooh, sorry anon. I'm not sure what the deal is with that. A couple of people have had this problem. I'm hoping this newer version of RenPy will address that issue and hopefully I'll have a new demo ready closer to release date.
