        In before anyone asks on The Book of Shadows. It's done. I just won't release it until after the Steam Summer sale. And got one legal thing to take care of before I can sell it and can't do that until July.

        Here's a mock battle testing it out. Note everything in the video is a placeholder, you'll see VXACE and MV facesets side by side for that reason, and nothing is balanced yet:

        Also you'll see the victory aftermath lines don't match, that's because I copy/pasted them from The Book of Shadows for a placeholder for now too.

        Quite nice! That's reminiscent of the MV's kicking intro style, which I like.

      I wonder how much game sales are hurt on Steam in June just due to people knowing there is probably going to be a sale in June sometime?

        I suspected it would hurt indie developers. But I guess that means we'd have to release our game shortly after June or December in order to maximize our exposure without a sale, right? (about the sale being optional, I remember RPGMakerMV not going deeply discounted for six months or so, so I'm guessing it's either manually or you have to contact Valve)

        @Marsigne : Right. That's what I hope to do. So by that reasoning August or February is probably the right time to release on Steam, as too soon after the sale everyone is broke too.

      Crazy idea: Make a full RPG with less than 5000 words in the entire game.

      So why is every game set in a high school set in Japan? Why none in the US? Or Egypt? Or Russia? Or just anywhere else?

        @mathmaster74 : I understand that. If I based a game on my HS it would involve my HS crush transferring to another school, then once I moved on and found someone else she disappeared without a trace.

        Would make for a depressing game I know.

        You know what, if I ever make a school setting, it's probably similar to Japan as we adopted the same/similar system, except maybe the school building structure (tall building for classes, a large schoolyard right in front of the entrance, etc)

        Oh, yes, as you need to find scenes that also work out of context as you don't have the time to establish the context anymore.

        I'll be able to buy a load of stuff on my wishlist when I get paid. I love GoG. Love being able to keep all my installers on an external hard drive. It's nice not needing to download an entire game again, after uninstalling it, when I want to replay a game in the future.

        ^^ Same here in Australia. They are quite strict about it. (Never head of anyone going to court over it, but still).

        And "fair warning" implies that you have done something wrong. Proper "fair use" wouldn't land you in court in the first place.

        @TheSorcerer, I agree with. The court wants to see the company informs the copyright violator first to show a good faith of a lawsuit, not just a surprise lawsuit. Rarely happen, but I am just explain the likelihood of wining the trail. I do not know why did I doing this.

        Yeah, I agree with getting given a fair warning. Often we might misinterpet something and think we are doing the right thing.

        Either side doesn't really want to spend time and money in the court. The 'other side' just wants to point out "hey dude, you can't really do that, it's ours".
