Is the game's title August (aw-gust) Emerald or August (uh-gust) Emerald? The former would correlate with the Summer month while the latter would denote grandeur or sacredness.

That's a good point (just saw this thread). But when I heard read the game's title, never gave any thought to that.

What he's asking is that if the title refers to the month of 'August', or the entirely different word 'august', which refers to something dignified or majestic.

To be honest, it doesn't really matter all that much. The month is named for the emperor who took the name Augustus to make himself appear dignified and majestic. And as far as I was aware, they were pronounced identically anyway.

But, if you're desperate to know, I've posted the answer on our forum. You'll have to register to find out! :p

Thanks for the answer. I'm sorry if you found my question trivial. (By the way, the pronunciations are similar, but not identical)

We're very close to releasing a demo. Anyone interested in testing should join our forum and post around. We'll be offering demos to the most active users over the next few weeks. Please note that spamming is not valid, and if you try to spam to get a demo, you can rest assured that you'll have to wait until it's finally released.

Link, as before, in my signature.

I noticed the "August Emerald" banners all over PC and decided I should check this out. Now I see why! This looks amazing. Dew and NikNaks and everyone else involved, the best of luck to you guys.

I'm also happy that even though it's a remake, it's also a sequel in a way. I've seen a lot of (failed) projects (including a very sad attempt by myself years ago) to remake games and have them die because they were the exact same as the original. New plot material really helps a game.

Again, great job so far, I'll be watching this thread for more updates for sure!

Sorry for the lull recently. I've been weighed down with school work (coursework deadlines for most subjects) so stay tuned over the next week or so. I'll have more time to work on it soon! :D

Work is progressing nicely. The plot has had a major overhaul, but we're still looking for new ideas. So, if you think you can help with either the story itself, or providing cutting edge dialogue, send me a PM with the word August in the subject. Anyone is welcome to apply, although I will be tremendously picky, so if you have any bright ideas immediately, putting them in your message might swing it one way or the other.

I'm holding off on posting the new thread until we have something big to show off, like the demo. I might do it in a week or so, though, depending on how things are going.

Well, my point was that if we're still a way away from the demo in a week, I'll just go ahead and post it anyway. But if we're really close, I'll hold off.
