Wow. I see there's some progress going on. Good Job!
Your idea with Father Torque is quite good. Still i wouldn't kill anybody , since that character may appear in the original Full Throttle 2 (if there is one coming). But anyway , it is a fan game , so don't mind that. Great job , again.
PS : The Ben sprite/sketch looks sloppy, but i'm really impressed with the background rocks! I wonder if using the original game sprites is illegal... hmm , it's for non-commercial use anyway...
