    Playing weather effects and screen tints over pictures.

    I'm trying to make a neat effect when snow falls over the entire screen as pictures are showing, however it appears that pictures take priority over effects, and as a result they appear unchanged against them. It looks ugly for what I'm trying to go for, I was wondering if there was a way to...

    What are your opinions on metafiction?

    I don't know why, but I've been really fascinated with metafiction recently. For those of you who don't know, it when a piece refers to it's own existence and becomes self-conscious of the fact that it's a work of fiction, usually as either a parody or for shock value. There's a lot more to it...

    Difficulty spikes as intentional design choices

    I've been thinking about something.  So we can all agree that difficulty spikes in games are usually not a good idea.  The sort of punish the player for not preemptively grinding beforehand and are generally unfair.  But I've been thinking, what if a difficulty spike was intentionally added to a...

    What else could a mimic impersonate?

    Mimics are commonly depicted as treasure chests that come to life and attack you when you try to open them. However what a lot of people seem to forget is that according to the first uses of mimics, they can actually take on the form of basically anything for the sole purpose of tricking...

    Can we guess your character's personality by a drawing of them?

    I've recently watched this video and I very interested by the beginning part of it, where Dan describes how a good character design and pose can convey character.  Now we all probably have a lot of characters in our own games, but I was wondering if we could try some kind of experiment given a...

    People who have made both free and paid games, what makes you decide which projects you charge money

    This is a question to people who have made a number of games.  What sets apart the games you make as freeware and the ones you charge money for?  Length of the game?  How much effort you put into it?  Number of people involved?  I'm a little curious about this.

    So say you were to make a game with a single character you play as for the entire adventure.  How would you balance it?  What kind of skills would you have?  Would you give the player any features that you wouldn't in a game with multiple protagonists? As an icebreaker, one thing I would do...

    How would you go about making a roguelike in MV?

    Alright, this is a thought I've had for a while, so here we go. Something that been on my mind for a while is how difficult or easy it would be to create a roguelike dungeon-crawler with RPG Maker. I always liked the idea of a randomized turn-based RPG, and this would logically be one of the...

side view special bust.png
Reworking the art for the 'special busts' in important game dialogue. Potentially replacing the more 'dead-on' look of the original:
Me: Imma work on my game! Let's get some progress done
Me, five minutes later smoking a cigarette: *screams into the void*
Just got back from work... I got to recommend a dish I liked to a group of senior ladies, and they said they'd order it for dessert! What was it? CHURROS! It's one of my favorite desserts at my workplace.
What's your favorite dessert? I'll eat any pastry with cinnamon and sugar, but especially churros. And then there's chocolate... omg, so good!
