Dropbox still down

the ban seems to have been extended beyond what it should so i've mirrored most of my demos on mega

https://mega.co.nz/#F!30xGEDxR!HqPOxu9OLqUO07dHEZ63lQ
i have also redirected my checkouts to mega, so now i dont have to email everyone who buys one of my games (though a few dont get through every now and then)

expo was great. didn't buy much though, couple of no game no life wallscrolls, a momo deviluke figure, some lovely wolf ears, and sora's tee-shirt from ngnl

also, my girlfriend proposed to me with a ring in a tardis...that was a shock, so yeah, im a finacee now

EXPO ( I will be out of contact until thursday 30th)

currently dropbox links may be down after a rush of traffic, will unlock it for now, Oh...can't do that, well I have a great customer now so i can afford to upgrade to a premium dropbox account :)
(£79 done for the year) so hopefully everyone should be able to get their redirects from the checkouts properly

but yeah i'll be off this week so if anything does go wrong, I'm sorry but i won't be able to deal with any of it until i get back next thursday.

work on izuki is going smoothly and i'm also working on a platformer project (not rika) since i finally got some decent sprites done. Will probably post more when i return...

welp, that didn't work... upgrading didnt remove the ban due to bandwidth...odd...  maybe it's cause of the false dmca's that have been filed against me for grapple

for now i only have demos for DQ, the full princess escape (h1), i think an old rika demo, and the yuko demo in my mega account

chrome://mega/content/secure.html#F!30xGEDxR!HqPOxu9OLqUO07dHEZ63lQ
science girl demo (mega)

this is all i can do for now though, until dropbox is back none of the checkout redirects will work, but if anyone does buy them, i will send you the files personally the first chance i get

dark witch izuki rpg (enemy poll)




as many of you know i've been working on my first rpg for the last week or so, to keep it interesting, I've been focusing it around puzzles in dungeons and acquiring on map abilities like the hookshot, though it has traditional turn based combat... anyway, the game features clothing damage, game over sex, in battle sex attacks, and the ability to tie up most enemies in bondage (some of which get a sexy pic for doing so)

anyway enemies, i asked people what enemies theyd like to see in the game and here's the poll, a few of them will be in anyway, but i wanted to see what people wanted most.

update (current projects)

making a first person dungeon crawler in the same vein as raidy and lillipalace... lustfire decided they wanted to help me on that one, and we can expect a demo in the next few weeks, but in the mean time ill be working on a small rpg project myself :) kind of a linear adventure game with rpg combat

Updates and Patreon(curious about it)

first of all, Currently near finishing the hardcore grapple game that was commissioned
(ulmf thread here) just 7 cg with a few variants to go until i can release, oh i also still have to write the scenes and implement them, but most of the groundwork is there allready

I did everything in common events and labels so i can easily slot them in when they're done.

Dash's sales are okay, but not brilliant, but i'm coping by playing  around with other projects.

I'm still having trouble with Rika (linear action adventure), spriting is proving tough for it, and dash isn't doing well enough for me to hire help.


anyway the new projects, Lustfire is busy doing character designs for the debt slave game, and I've been working on a first person dungeon crawler in the same vein as raidy or lilipalace (the next one is out in november yay)... but with that... I've been wondering if i should do a patreon for this game

I don't really know what to do though so i wanted to ask my supporters what you think?... the looming deadline of running out of rent is closing in and i'm not safe yet... so i'm feeling pressured by it


Oh, also suggest a character type for the MC of my dungeon crawler, I haven't decided yet

expect a demo once I have some of the art done, so far i've got

 the shop hub ,

the second floor boss -a giant spider chases you around until you're strong enough to beat it, but you can run... it works in the same way as raidy does though, it's very hard to beat without the specific flag/item you find on that floor.

the layouts for the 3rd and 4th floor done

the first floor is basically done but there's no boss for it, needs more than a single mook though



hopefully the game would feature enemies that are stripped when you beat them.

end of august update

Well, first of all, Dash!! finally got released yesterday on dlsite, I have high hopes that the game will sell well... while i was waiting on that i started another commissioned rpgmaker game - a small yuri sex wrestling game :), surprisingly i seem to be getting the work done on it rather quickly...

The game consists of a single match and starts off with a simple rock paper scissors, but the damage inflicted is 1-3 points, with a tug of war point system, every time the points hit the end, a grapple move happens based on the move that successfully did the damage that tipped it off the scale

my art has actually got a lot better, my lineart is still flawed but improving


in other news i've learned a lot code wise, in rpgmaker i've learned how to use labels which are really useful for skipping past certain things or repeating segments... in game maker i finally nailed down psuedo 3d, so in future i could do a birds eye tower defense game or a beatemup...or anything really


I made an offbeatr account and im getting ready to crowdfund a large rpgmaker game about a girl who is suddenly lumped with a huge debt and has a certain number of days to pay it back or lose her human rights and become a sex slave... there wont be any rpg combat, most days consist of deciding what to do, whether you go to work or go to the casino or shopping and special events can be unlocked over time by meeting npcs, there'd be many ways of making money, doing tasks for a mafia family (stealth missions), working part time, training other slaves and of course...prostitution :)



hmmm the blog is making them look darker than they should




































^lustfire is doing the artwork for this game so it will be a while before i have the demo for making the crowdfunding page, but we have some nice concept art currently.



rika (my metroidvania) is on hold until i can think more about the function of enemies... like metroid has the floating ones that go back and forward for freezing as platforms, turret enemies and so on...
either way theres a lot of spriting still to be done on it.



My current goals in order of priority are:


Become a successful games designer with at least one hit.

pay my rent up until april (when i qualify for working tax credits which will make my life a lot easier). £2250

Pay off my overdraft before it stops being 0% august 2015. £2000

work towards moving out  £????


I feel like im forgetting something, but i still got plenty of game ideas up my sleeve.

my 2 year anniverary

27th of july i think ...2 years since i began work on princess escape... i still cant call myself a success, but i should be fine if i can survive until april...as i qualify for working tax credits when i turn 25

anyway, i've been thinking of giving a game away for free again... i'm hoping some people will donate :)

probably be yuko, since the others are still selling better than it :)

Dash!! (pre-orders)



the run or rape game i've almost finished is available for a sort of early access/pre-order thing, i'm in need of some money (not for rent, im paid til september) and barreytor suggested i do pre-orders and since i allready had the unlock file for dash i thought "I can totally do that."

so, i can sell dash!! at a discount in advance, the unlock file can all ready get past the end of demo barrier and allow the player to see the levels i've been working on, unfortunately none of the new cgs are ready yet and are why the game will be a little late (originally was a small project but lustfire wanted to do more cg ^w^ )

basically it lets you keep an eye on me, in the next week i expect to get all the placeholders done, maybe add some sound and hopefully get some spriting done for the slug enemies and the wolf in the endings :) ...the minimum amount of time lust will need for the cg are 12 days


the game upon release will be old at the same price as the now reduced damsel quest (£3.20), but these advance copies, as well as getting a thank you in the credits, will be reduced to £2.3/$4 usd

the current release date is the end of july

be sure to follow the instructions on the checkout page :)


CONTROLS
mouse in the level select screen to select (left click)

forgot to say, all better now :)  working hard, I haven't got much to do yet, look forward to the finished game :3 (im really hoping 2 weeks is long enough for the cg to be finished)

UGHHH...sick

not had much chance to work these last few days as i've been pretty ill in ways id rather not talk about, though i'm still hopeful i can get dash done and released by the end of the month, i've still got 15 levels to design for it and its not inconceivable that id manage more than one level in a day, so plenty of time...

really hoping this stops soon
