Hey everyone. Looking to get some data from you. If you played the game and have a moment, would you mind commenting the computing hardware you ran it on and if you had any issues? We're trying to get a gauge of how well its running and if we should optimize further. Thanks -Ryan and TJ
The Ambassador Demo
A downloadable game for Windows
Gregor, ambassador to The Capital, scurries about his home gathering his family so they may quickly flee north to Stoneshire. Gregor was always a curious fellow but infrequently thought out the consequences of his actions. This had proven to be his biggest failing, as he stumbled upon a secret of the king so awful that he had to tell everyone. Within the hour the king decreed a warrant for Gregor's arrest and execution for acts against the crown. Gregor never was a brave man, nor had he ever held a sword in his life. He was a nobleman like his father before him, and that means he is above such acts. He knew his only choice would be to seek asylum in the north. However what he does not know is the long and dangerous road ahead of him, one where he may want to plan his decisions more carefully.
The Ambassador is a twin-stick shooter where your every action has a consequence. Level by level you will make your way north. You will be presented by multiple decisions, some more obvious than others, and experience their outcomes. No decision is wrong or right, the only thing that matters is if it makes sense at the time.
Currently we are presenting a demo. The Demo has been play tested and should be stable with minimal bugs. The Ambassador is planned to release in December on Steam, for which we have already been green-lit, and itch.io. If the game performs well we intend to release for mac and other platforms. We hope you enjoy the game and look forward to your feedback! - Ryan Throw and TJ Acre
***NOTE TO STREAMERS AND LETS PLAYERS: We have heard that some people are having issues recording the game in full screen mode. We advise that you test recording full screen first before continuing recording the game. We always are sad when we hear of people accidentally recording 40 minutes of their desktop.

is there controls for mouse and keyboard or only for controller?
The demo currently only supports keyboard and mouse. The full version will have controller support.
This was super frustrating in parts, but in the right way. Back to the old school style of gaming where you have to try, try and try again. I appreciated that (despite my evident rage haha)!
I love the adventure / RPG style mixed in with the swarm of enemies mechanics too, makes it nice and relaxing for a second when you get to just talk to someone. Keep up the great work, looking forward to seeing a whole lot more =)
I did a playthrough too, took me two parts though, had to give my poor hands a rest!
Thanks man! We're happy you liked it! Can't wait to watch part 2! Let me know when it's ready!
Well here we are, as requested! Part 2 is up and done and full of even more rage haha! Really enjoyed going through this, and really looking forward to seeing more in the future =)
Hey everyone. First of all we want to thank everyone who did video's, reviews, and reached out to us with feedback. We have a lot to go off of now and have a list of things to make the demo, and thus the final game better. We are currently working on a web port of the demo so that it may be played in the browser. We intend on this to be completed by the end of next week at the latest. We will allow the game to be played in the browser or by download after the port is complete so don't worry if you prefer to play the game locally on your machine. We will be making the following changes in the coming demo update as well:
Edits to text errors
Rebalance of level 1
Better weapons visibility when on ground
Communication of some game elements that people haven't noticed
Buff to final boss
A possible rebalance and tweak to the time stop mechanic
Thanks again and we hope you guys are enjoying it,
