This wasn't even from scratch, and it still took me 8,291,288 hours, so please appreciate it. (Enlarged to show detail, like your breakfast cereal box):

quin face set 200 percent.png

A new playable warrior has entered the arena. This is Quin, and there are some seriously important things you should know about her:

Age: 34
Occupation: Professional wrestler (and mother, if you count that sort of thing)
Likes: Biceps curls; waking up at 5:55 a.m. on the dot daily
Dislikes: Wasted time; people who use her real, outside-the-ring name

Here's a Quin sprite at 200% zoom. Why does this feel like the hardest thing I've done in my entire life?

Early version of our first custom song:


It's a candidate for the main battle theme, so it'll probably need to be extended so players aren't hearing the same 48-second tune a million times. What do you guys shoot for when it comes to battle theme length?

WIP song from a scene where you finally emerge from the first "nightmare dungeon" to witness the happier sights of Avery's imagination:

I'm too tired/lazy to write dumb facts about her, but here's Avery 2.0. She was about to go to bed, but then "YMCA" came on Spotify.

I must be getting old, because I had to look that name up haha. But thanks! I've been assembling them in GIMP for better control and customizability, and it's exhausting due to my obsessive nature combined with lack of skill.

I actually have a team member now who's in the middle of tall-ifying the sprites:

can't wait to try out the game, the screens and characters look pretty interesting. tall sprites are always nice to see too. i been working with gimp a lot recently, got an edit of everyone's favorite ralph that's turning out pretty nice.
and you're not the only one, I'm going on 35 next month lmao. i only know the name because we just watched The Northman movie recently.

The past 1-2 weeks I've been working on asset conversion, my latest attempt being XP trees. I also found a dangerous new obsession -- GIMP patterns and brushes -- in anticipation of switching to parallaxing for future maps.

(Characters are just for show; the battle system will actually happen on a separate screen.)

Sometimes I wonder why I still try and recruit others to help with my games. It never works.

welp, thanks to Luna MV, I was able to add the Balloon as a window... thus allowing me to edit the font color and outline... so now it looks like comic bubbles above characters. I have NO idea why I couldn't get this to work through more conventional means, but here we are.
