Retail Clerk '89 - Version 1.0

August 18, 2019
Here's the "final" version of Retail Clerk '89. At this point I'm not planning any changes unless a catastrophic error is found. This is a very anti-climatic moment for me. There's a sense of achievement in finishing this demo but I also never want to look at it again. So on to the next thing, whatever that is...

The complete story is now playable with three possible endings. It has also been fairly thoroughly debugged. I won't claim this is fun. This is pretty close to the final version. An entire playthrough should take about an hour. I expect the final release later this month or September after another round of testing, no promises though.

The story is now playable up through the "bad" ending. There are a huge number of changes in this version including saving & loading. It would not surprise me if there is a game-breaking bug somewhere in it.

This was the last major feature I planned to add to Retail Clerk '89. I kept putting it off because I thought it would be a lot of work. It really wasn't though.

In this demo the rough story for the first seven days is playable. There are eight days planned in total so this is getting closer to the "main story complete" milestone. It still isn't especially fun but I'm not sure that was ever the point of this project.
