Final Update!!

Wow, 12 years in the works and it's complete? That's cray cray. I would like to say a magnificently huge WELL DONE. Your commitment to this project is astounding, and it is very inspiring for someone to put that length of time consistently, into anything. I hope you find testers for your game!

2018 Sucked. 2019 Looks Alright

"- Began a new career as an IT consultant specifically because of my game development background. NOT my degree, by the way. The games made in RM drew as much, if not more, attention on my resume than anything academic related! And people say RPG Maker will get you nowhere. Ha! "


This is really awesome to see. Despite your troubles with your previous job, I like that it paved a way for a career with perhaps better prospects, because someone is recognizing the true talent of someone who can analyse something really well, and work on something consistently until it's finished. Your work is incredible and I am so happy that it got you a new job. I can identify with the mental health struggles, probably not as much as I am judging you are, but I very much pray you'll be able to push through and really come out the other side riding high and fast on the horse of... success. (That metaphor was weird!)

Anyways, I'm congratulating you on a year well-done despite many circumstantial setbacks. You are awesome :)

It'll Look Great On Your Résumé

Hey what's this new update to one of my favourite games on this site? What does this mean, yeah?

How often have you been in the cinema this year? What movie did you last see? Do you also use movies as inspiration for your own games?

Like Sooz, I am rarely in the theater, but that's only because Netflix and Amazon have proven alternatives way easier on my budget. I also loved Annihilation. My favourite films released this year were the incredibly befuddling The Endless, the taut and near-perfectly paced political thriller Widows, the austere and heart-wrenching First Reformed, the anxiety-inspecting slice-of-teen coming-of-internet-age Eighth Grade, and Black Panther, Sorry to Bother You and A Quiet Place. All great films of 2018.

I will use movies and all types of media as inspiration for the moment to moment actions in my games. I oftentimes want cutscenes to feel "cinematic" so I will implement pauses and rushing swells in music where necessary. But I do feel like I need to remember this is a game and not a movie, and thus there are many things effective in one medium and not the other. Games thrive on interactivity with the player, and usually utilizing that form and its freedom that it offer is one of the aspects of games that movies can't provide.

Although Black Mirror: Bandersnatch seems keen on trying, right, guys?

Three Ghostly Roses Review

I had completely gotten tired of the game's grindy nature of its progression by the time I was halfway through the Garden Tower.

This makes me think you didn't get past the Garden Tower at all? That's super early in the game. I doubt it's a good representational review if you didn't get past that early stage.

Soul Sunder Review

I mean, this is all good and stuff, but you should really think about the way you present your review. Instead of a stream-of-consciousness commentary, maybe you should categorize, form general opinions, and present them in a way that's digestible. Because all I see is scribbles and nit-picks.

A quick scan of your review and I read about picking one berry from a four-berry bush is "ludonarrative dissonance"? Small typos and frustration over supposed logical inconsistencies that are explained later? I'm struggling to see what made you so frustrated as to call this a 1-star game.

Maybe think about how you convey your opinions before writing a review, because this is really messy and it feels like you took very little time or effort to organise your thoughts before conveying them. And as a critique of a game that took months to create, that comes across to me as disrespectful, frankly.

Last Minute Gift

This is still one of my favourite RPG Maker games of all time. <3

Seasons of RMN II

Ooh! I might do something.

Scary.
