        Left my game dev job sometime last year to move abroad. Sorta left my rig back home as well, currently only have a laptop that's probably old enough to vote in some countries. I'll get back to game dev eventually, but currently occupied with settling in + learning the language + current dayjob.

        Well, I hope we'll still be here when you get around to it. Be safe, and hope you have a lot of fun on your travels. Might be best to just leave this stuff alone for a while. Check in of course, but the day we're in is only so long, and can only worry about so much.

        @StrawberrySmiles Ippus did, the image is directly from her twitter account. The project was from a really long time ago, I was what, a college freshman and she was probably still in the high school at the time.

        I knoooow! But, we may just stick with the one with the pattern on the forehead. The caped one is a little too cartoony, the one on the upper left is a little creepy with its skull-like face and the rest may be a little too weird looking.

      So the game studio I'm currently working for is facing closure. I should find a better day job.

        @Kes I have a solid lead already, but it involves uprooting and moving abroad. I have no qualms about it, but I've never done it before.

        Pretty sure I'm stepping away from game dev as a career for a bit now though. I love it and I'm never stopping game maek, but I need to find another line of work that puts food on the table.

      Looking for old projects to bring back from the dead. [Idea A: 1 2] [Idea B: 1 2]


      Idea A: A space-themed adventure about dueling popstars patterned after Gravity Falls, Star vs the Forces of Evil, and Josie and the Pussycats.


      Idea B: A super sentai/Power Rangers-inspired modern sci-fi RPG that takes gameplay cues from modern Persona titles.

        I actually initially set the original project that way to sidestep the need for too many sprites since our collective spriting skills weren't that great. The story was more mecha anime-inspired like Dual! and Sakura Wars, but I really didn't like the story anymore and I've since lost contact with the artist who did the mechs.

        Looks nice! Too bad about the takedowns though. Maybe a story revision will do?

        Well the revision is re-theming the game around super sentai/power rangers. I have a story outlined, but I'm looking into mechanics now and figuring out if there's a game in there that's viable on RM*.


        The first idea I sort of a handle on the mechanics. It's the plot that I need to figure out.

        Yep! Was staying at Sumida-ku until yesterday, moved to Funabashi because my companions thought it would be closer to Makuhari Messe where they're holding Tokyo Game Show (it isn't).

        Then again, maybe the generator was meant to compensate? The need to produce battlers may have hampered diversity tho

        Ruby> Yeheeep, MV. Traditional 2D JRPG controls are pretty simple so I always believed they'd work pretty well on mobile. I still have my developer licenses for Android and iOS so this couldn't have come at a better time!
