Once, Picasso was asked what his paintings meant. He said, "Do you ever know what the birds are singing? You don't. But you listen to them anyway."

My post contained a smiley for a reason, so you must be really frustrated if you think my post was condescending.

With all due respect, your game is 14 years in the making and has seen two Kickstarter campaigns. If you can't handle the occasional teasing remark at this point, you are probably the one who's the most dissatisfied about your game not being completed yet. Also, I don't think it's a good idea to vent your anger on potential customers.

Of course, passive-aggressive hate baiting is pretty shitty, but I'm neither at liberty nor willing to make such remarks.

The version of the game you're referencing doesn't exist anymore. It was started from scratch. It's the same in name only.
The year you cited is also meaningless because I took a lengthy hiatus from developing in the middle of all that.

I'm also sure you know the original KS was a mere 2k which probably could afford me... a couple music tracks and a tile-set.

So don't be coy, the intent was to make me seem like an exploitative developer or a fraud. Pretty sure a customer like you wouldn't be interested in that, right?


When will this game be released?
Chapter 1 is officially finished. Shoot me a message if you're interested in playing the demo! It's about 3-4 hours at the moment. :)

Maybe after another Kickstarter campaign. ;)

Have you finished a game yourself? Do you have a concept of how much time, money, and energy is required to create something with completely custom assets, balancing a day job at the same time?

If not, don't make such condescending remarks here.


May I ask why you named it, Alexandria?..

Thanks for asking!

That's the name I chose for the city when I first started this project, a long time ago. I thought it would be good keep names and concepts true to my original vision, even if it was a little contrived. Plus, it's a nice homage to FF9. XD

I may change it for the final release, though.

July Demo Release!

So excited to try this out, at last!

Fuck Pride, here's some gay

What exactly happened with the previous event? There was a Pride contest that members were disagreeable about? And the staff so quickly conceded to cancel it?
To my understanding, no one had issues with the Pride side of the event (RMN is not that kind of place), what people didn't like was the additional Sin theme.

Ah, ok. Good to know!

How sad. Are we still in 2006?

(..I hope that wasn't the case)

Thanks, friend!

Been following your work for many years too, and Giznads pointed me toward your new project. More broadly speaking, I'm glad that there's such a sudden resurgence of interest in 2k3 projects.
