HELLBOUND was rejected for the maps, which I have no time whatsoever to go back and redo (Law school). So, unless someone wants to go and remake all the mapping in the game, it's probably not going to be on this site. It's on GameJolt, though.

Going through the screenshots of your game on GJ, the mapping is not too bad but you need to condense your space a little bit.

The map of the girl's room is WAAAAAAY bigger than it needs to be. Think about what the player is going to spend doing in a room like that. Large rooms with lots of empty space not only looks bad, but isn't really functional for the game since it adds needless padding while walking through a simple section.

Other than that, the screens I saw are okay. Not necessarily the greatest, but I think it'll be passable once you spruce things up.

Edit: And I know that the flip-side is to say "Well, maybe if you reworked the mapping and made it look better, more people would play it," but seeing as though Meme Simulator 420 and Pokemon With Curse Words are the only games that seem to do well on Game Jolt, and there's no guarantee that the game would get on RPG Maker.net (here), it just doesn't seem like it's worth my time. And the best thing to do would be to move on to the next project.

Gamejolt's lack of quality control is arguably its biggest problem.


I'm doing a little bit of sprucing now. The game definitely isn't notable or anything for its graphics. More of a story / character / tone driven thing.

Those processes separate the wheat from the chaff and I think that benefits everyone
...except the person that has to do the chaffing.

We burn through a game submission moderator every year or so.
A noble sacrifice!
I sometimes feel chaff still makes it through which is sad.

I get that the approval processes have their benefits. It's just kind of a bummer to learn about this now, when remaking a lot of the rooms (especially the first room, which a lot of the events call back to / take place in) would be a huge time sink into something that's already not doing so well.

Basically, I'm just salty.

GameJolt is appealing because you can upload your game there without having to have it vetted. That's appealing at face value, because it's easy and doesn't require any sort of voting / approval process. I uploaded HELLBOUND to Game Jolt for that reason after having gone through the hellish (pun intended) Steam Greenlight process, which I / the game was DEFINITELY not ready for.

(like, at all)

That being said, if there is legitimate interest in a version of HELLBOUND with better maps, I might invest time in it as a cool off thing for when I'm studying for finals. I dunno. At like, ~60 plays on GameJolt though it just doesn't seem worth it at the moment.

That's fair. I may have time to redo some of the maps (or 'spruce' them) after May, but until then there's just no way. haha

Submitting Hellbound. Approval incoming?

Still not approved. I promise it's not spam / pr0n or otherwise.
