Part-timer Mom by Day... Dreamwalker By Night

Overview:
Derpy's the kind of mom that has to work all kinds of jobs around town to make end's meet; she's usually the first one up and the last one to bed. Ask around town and they'll say she's a trooper- an easy breeze that'll brighten up your day.


She's also the kind of mom that accidentally burns dinner during soup night. Ask around town again and they'll say she's a real twister- leaves nothing unscathed in her wake.


Ask again and it seems like there's something weird going on around town; something that's making everyone lose precious hours of sleep. And it looks like no one but Derpy can do anything about it.

Looks like the midnight shift just opened up...

Gameplay:
Day Dreaming Derpy is a Paper Mario-inspired JRPG with an emphasis on the exploration of the Dream World and the interaction between Derpy and the residents of the Real World. While asleep, Derpy can use her abilities gained from her many part-time jobs to combat the nightmares that plague the dreams she explores along with the help of many unique, quirky characters. While awake, Derpy can prepare for her night-time ventures by working all around town to buy items and unlock new abilities she can use in the Dream World.

Features:
  • Over 10 unique allies!
  • Hi-Bit Pixel Art!
  • Paper-Mario-inspired RPG Gameplay Elements!
  • Mother-Daughter Bonding!
  • Strange Sense of Humor!
  • PONIES!!

Day Dreaming Derpy Dev Log #10 (Game Builds)

Phase 1 is complete! To say the response to the DEMO v0.1 was overwhelming would be an understatement because as far as releases go, this might be the one of the most well received! First thing's first though...

THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO SHARED OR PLAYED DAY DREAMING DERPY!

I'm so glad that ya'll enjoyed the little I had to offer for the demo and I'm looking forward to further develop and polish this game for you all to enjoy in it's final form! But fear not, for those antsy enough not to wait for the full release, here's how the development builds are gonna go down!

The current version v0.1, while packed with everything I've worked on so far, does have some bugs and unintended events that couldn't be foreseen prior to release, so builds like v0.11 / v0.12 would be common enough to replace the current download at rpgmaker.net. Think of these like patches that fix minor things in the current version to make the experience/gameplay smoother. Upon testing, old save files do function as they should with these small tweaks added, so simply transferring your save file to the new game folder would work just as fine and you can continue playing from where you left off.

Future builds like v0.2 or v0.3 and so on will contain major additions to the game, these include new dreams, areas, characters, additions to the battle system, etc. Essentially, with each new build I will be working closer toward the complete product with v1.0 being the "content complete" status. Save files can be transferred to the new game folder in the same way, but I'd do so with caution as crashes may occur if large changes conflict with the save file's data.

Game dev mumbo jumbo aside, if you watch for any updates or announcements for a new build, you'd slowly play the entire(yet flawed) pre-release version of the game. It's like getting a steady stream of appetizers before the main course!


Of course, I'll still be releasing dev logs on how the game's going and my ramblings on game design and whatnot; I hope this entertains those of you interested in following the game's behind the scenes progress.

As for anyone who has volunteered their services to help with development, I would like to thank you for all the offers. I'm sort of one-man-army-ing this thing so any help is appreciated and I will send out another post if, and when I do need to draw upon your phenomenal cosmic powers~!

Again, I'd like to thank everyone who has made this release get as big as it did! And feel free to let know if there's anything you'd like to see from me or in the game!

Thanks, ya'll @^@

This game sounds incredible... I loved Paper Mario as a kid and dearly wished it would receive a ponification. While the fan art of Paper Pinkie sadly doesn't exist. Derpy is probably better as I love Derpy. I shall watch this and stalk this page relentlessly till it is completed.

Thanks for making my wish come true!

My knowledge and experience with MLP:FiM is just a little past cursory, but I used to be big on this show regarding the site Know Your Meme and its uploads. I'll see if I can't give this a shot sometime~

EDIT/PS - Is the title name based off "Day Dreaming Davey", by any chance? lawl

Hey, I was wondering if you needed a soundtrack! So far, I am intrigued with the progress of this project, and LOVE the direction it's going in. I'm a new musician, but I think that my skills could perfectly suit your needs. I don't want money, I just want to contribute to this cute game! Contact me for more detail!
