"Life is a riddle I wish I had the answer for..."
I've been a fan and follower of RPG Maker games of all sorts since 2012. My all-time favourite has to be "Love and War: Act I", closely followed by "The Way" and "Romancing Walker". (Yes, I'm weird that way!)

I'm not particularly good at game design, though I can write plot-lines reasonably well. While waiting for the rest of Love and War to come out, I've also written three full-length stories set in the Love and War universe, which you can read over at the Love and War forums. (I go by Professor Q over there, surprise, surprise!)

I also enjoy reviewing games, though I tend to write about games I enjoyed playing. If a review of mine sounds critical, it's meant to spur the developer to do better.

I'm also experimenting with RPG Makers XP and VX, so watch this space.

(For those interested, my profile quote is from this song:
The Third World
Where do dreams go when they die?




Very cute!


Very nice! I love this art style. ^_^

Shadows of Adam Releases Feb 23rd, 2017

Huzzah! ^_^

The Castle of the Blue Moon

Wow...that was awesome. You've got a serious talent for writing.

Edit: Dag-nabit, that was supposed to be under the blog! Humbug.

Thanks a lot!! =) Inspiration sometimes strikes; at other times, I just have to plod on. Hopefully the writing in the game will be more of the former! ^_^

Villain RPG: A Hero's Tale

Good article! ^_^ I'll definitely come back to this as I work on the "antagonists" for my latest project (the current one is already set in stone, alas.)

Kissing Foes Review

Good review. I would have liked this game a lot better if it had been, uh, an actual game. Walking into every NPC and hitting the action button is a good way to get flavour text, but it can't be the whole game! ^_^

Brain Reconstructor

I'm very sorry for the late reply. I've never thought that I'll get a comment here. I've read your review and yeah, it is heartbreaking, but you are right. This game, until now, is too similar with To The Moon. Even though, it was inspired by To The Moon, I agree that it's not good to create something too similar to another game. I've realized my mistakes and I'll try to change the design of this game, but the feeling of the opening will still the same in this current version. Geez, I wish I'd read your review earlier. I guess, that'll be on my to do list in the next development process.

For the translation, it has got so many fixes in the grammar error. I have a translator now.

Thank you very much for your review.

Dear flakeheartnet, I'm sorry if my review has caused you heartbreak. I suppose I made one major error in writing it - not underlining the positives in your game. For what it's worth, here they are:

1. Excellent graphics.
2. Custom user interface, not the usual RTP / RPG Maker menu system
3. Smooth transitions and effects.
4. No unnecessary lag or slow controls despite the complexities involved.
5. Andrew's sister Sonia seems like an interesting character.

That being said, I'm glad you took my words in the spirit in which they were intended. This is all the more important because you're planning to make a commercial game. If this were a free fan-game or tribute, I wouldn't really be bothered - witness all the Final Fantasy and Yume Nikki fangames that gain accolades by the dozen in the RPG Maker community. But a commercial game is something that has to be original and distinctive (ideally, free games should work that way too, but this isn't an ideal world ^_^), otherwise it will simply get lost in the mix and dismissed by reviewers as "a To The Moon clone".

Good luck with your game! I look forward to seeing how it's going to progress from here, and I remain a subscriber.


Shadows of Adam

Yup! Lun wrote the script and designed all the levels.

Hurrah! Just purchased and downloaded my copy. Going to check it out now! ^_^

Shadows of Adam

Ooh, I'm subscribing! I'm sold! Am I mistaken, or does this game's development team include the legendary Lun Calsari? (goes into fandom-induced syncope. ^_^)

Remie and Alana

This is really a very cute game indeed. Looking forward to seeing more of it! ^_^
(Also, a magical girl app? I laughed. Loud. ^_^)
