  • Ugh I don't think I'm going to be able to make the IGMC deadline while trying to make deadlines for my work projects. If this were in December it would have been so much easier for me to fit in time. I hope they hold another one next year.

    I couldn't come up with an idea so I had to skip out because it's something I wanted to do since I started game dev in 2019.

    You can still offer a demo of your project if that's possible. I see alot of devs are considering that possibly due to how tight the deadline is.

    You can post what you got for feedback still.
    I just got Romancing Saga 2 and 3, and Saga Scarlet Grace Ambitions on App Store sale. I wish App Store labeled its apps' discounted prices like Steam does because I discovered this discount by accident - none of my SE mails told me about this sale. This also goes to show how important marketing is for people to even know one's game is on sale or even available.

    I've got RSaga 2 & 3 on the Xbox. Haven't had chance to get into them yet, but looking forward to them! It's the same with Android - I have to go manually down my wishlist to see if Kairosoft ever decide to put anything on sale :p

    Those games are also on sale on the PS Store. Guess it's across platforms.
    I'm starting to wonder if I'll actually have time to finish my IGMC entry with the work I need to do for other things this year. Rather than 2 hours, maybe just twenty minutes like a demo project...
    So a big bug that was on a glue trap at home is now magically not on the glue trap. This feeling of terror I'm experiencing could be a fun thing to put in my game project (not the IGMC one).

    I can already picture the image as a slasher movie sequence.
    -glance over at the trap, bug still there, character keeps walking.
    -cut to different angle, character minding their own business.
    -cut back to previous shot, reverse angle, trap unseen.
    -character looks over, camera follows, frames the trap... empty.
    -DUNNNNN!

    I honestly read that not as insect-bug, but software-bug the first time and was quite confused how on earth a glue trap could have one of those :rswt
    I now have an idea of how to approach my IGMC entry for this year's theme, as well as a working title (TBA). Given the limited time I can spare, I'm going with a game design that doesn't require a battle system. Something that could be expanded if I want to make it a longer game, but can probably be played through within 2 hours (the goal for now), at least on a speed run.
    Steam wishlists are back! Time to see which bookmarks have reached my personal discount thresholds.

    It stop working? Didn't know XD
    Steam summer sale began and my wishlist is gone. After fiddling around, it looks like a server issue since stuff simply isn't loading up. Meanwhile, I decided to try Lunar Silver Star Story next in my run through of JRPG classics. It apparently uses anime cutscenes with VA so I may need to get new earphones sooner than later.

    Yeah first hour or two of the sale Steam is derp. Best to do something else until the madness dies down.
    I finally completed DQ III and it's now in epilogue bonus dungeon mode; now I've officially completed the main stories for the Erdrick Trilogy. Much appreciation for how much care went into the NPC dialogues throughout the games. I think I'll tackle FF III next.
    Having a boss in a game that attacks the entire party with a big attack twice in a row with multi-party heal many, many levels of grind away is questionable game design. I'm surprised they didn't fix this particular boss' quirk in Dragon Quest III. Ah well.

    Makes me think of Arc Rise Fantasia which was quite challenging, but did the opposite where your characters warn you when the boss is about to use their strongest attack. SMT V does this too.

    This was one of the hassles of the classics however. I'm thinking a fair middle ground would be to have the deadliest attack happen every few turns.
    MZ 1.50 - increased major database item limits from 2000 to 9999 - Booyah lol.

    Speaking as a player, I just hope I never have to deal with 2000+ skills. Combing through them in the middle of battle would probably mean that for all practical purposes I'm going to ignore most of them. Though as human nature is so diverse I expect that somewhere out there, someone is drooling at the thought.
    With the new phone, I can now play a lot of old RPGs that my old phone just didn't have room for. Some RPGs definitely show their age even with updated graphics and quick saving.
    The longer the Pokemon cartoon series continues with Ash at the same age, the darker the implications of a boy who never ages, never realizes how many days remain until his next birthday...

    I'm sure if someone was to count the actual in-universe hours through the saga, it'd still add up to more than a year.

    IIRC He's actually had two birthdays and fairly close to each other with his 11th around the 20 year anniversary of the series. Which is only MORE confusing than anything.
    I got a new phone recently after hundreds of years with the old one, and I'm amazed at how far smartphones have come in handling videogames, as well as how fast 5G can download gigabytes of data (within minutes).

    I'm not convinced it's worth me switching to 5G just yet, but I'm glad you get to have a nice upgrade.

    A lot of people are switching to 4G and 5G this year because 3G is getting discontinued lol. Last year people at a convention were flabbergasted at how old my phone was lol.
    More than 98% of Activision Blizzard's shares voted in favor of the Microsoft takeover. Barring any weird regulation hangups, it's happening. If they don't do some massive readjustment of executive positions like Discovery did for WarnerMedia, it might not be enough to stop ActiBlizz's decline.

    you can dump all the money you want into the fund, to salvage the operation.
    if you keep hiring utter morons to drive the operation, it's gonna capsize again.
    it's not a money problem, it's a management problem.
    and more to the point, it's an HR problem: they hire suits, not professionals.

    My prediction for WoW at least is that if Dragonflight meets with lukewarm response upon release and population continues to decrease, the Microsoft execs will start seriously considering WoW 2. Somebody might say "since we've already done Overwatch 2, a WoW sequel might be long overdue".

    Or they just add it to GamePass like everything else.

    But seriously, just give it away already. Paying for a game that you have to also pay a fee to use is just asinine these days.

    Also, Bethesda is already part of Xbox so that's a mute point. I think if that were to be more accurate then it should've been said that "they could have sold it to EA".
    I've been watching videos of anime openings for video games as research to see what I'd need to make one, and I've noticed that there are a surprising number of parts in the openings where there is no actual animated motion for the characters in the openings, using camera panning or zoom instead. It seems more doable now.

FINALLY got the mood system in the game during battle. Since the game is called Panic Attack, I figured you should have certain moods present including Panic. so the main 3 or Hype, Depressed, and Anxious. Panic is only when stunned.

Red's design is finally finished (his hair is blue on purpose, it's a joke!). Out of all of the compulsory party members, he spends the most time with you. Just like the character he's based on, he presents himself as a simple person who only wants to help others, but there's obviously more to him than meets the eye.
I drew the cover for my new book. I don 't like to entrust this work to someone else )

So if I wanted to share little video clips of my game on here... without using youtube... what would be the most ideal way to do that? FWIW, I use Mega a lot to upload videos and just share the links with my friends.
