    -No untested games allowed D<
    -For games over an 30 minutes I may continue or not depending on circumstances. 
    -I will upload the videos to Youtube after the streaming, so you can always check there.
    -I swear a lot. If that's not okay by you want to stay clear.
    -I have an awful Spanish accent. I'm warning you now~

    So you didn't enjoy TMC? XD

    I still think it's pretty good however, and gets better when you proceed further on with the story, but that's of course my personal opinion^^

    You should try Star Stealing Prince then, that one is absolutely awesome.

    I'm sorry, it was just too bland for me. Worse, it drained my energy, making the Lp pretty dead :/

    No problem, and it's not my game, it was only a suggestion^^

    I usually prefer playing short games however (2-3 hours max), that's also why I like yours.

    Blunt and harsh feedback is usually the best medicine! I put up my game here for your consideration.

    You know I will probably just give up if the game trolls me XD I'm not that patient .Zendir2 was messy but playable,if the game doesn't let me advance I'm gonna say Frick it eventually :v

    But sure, I'll give it a twirl. And curse a lot, if its hard (more than USUAL which should be amusing). Hold on to your butts XD

    I will be publishing a new, updated Demo here as soon as dropbox uploads it. It will be easier, I promise.

    EDIT: Uploaded

    Honest feedback:

    - Lower your game audio by 60% in post editing, I can barely hear what you're saying and you already have a very thick accent making it very hard to understand you.

    - Edit your video with normalization and your own voice with a normalization, you sometimes go over the peak in the audio and go over the "red zone" so to speak.

    - You need to adjust the position of your microphone since there's snaps and pops sometimes in your speech.

    - Your recording quality is set very low, you should aim to be 480p minimum. This will also make the audio even worse.

    - I love your accent but maybe you should work out on your pronouncication, 

    - Edit your video to smaller bits, don't make over hour long marathon videos. Give the player a chance for breaks and leave them wanting more.

    I've not seen anyone do it, can you do a let's play of my first game I made over 12 years ago? It's crude humor game and kinda bad but it may amuse you.

    @MrBigT: Reply to feedback point per point (kinda long so spoiler it is)

    -This point I more or less agree with. In Lufia particularly the game audio was very hight and I'm not too sure why, I'll look into it.

    -It's safe to assume I have edited videos exactly never, so well, we shall see. (I don't record my voice and video at different palces so I'll go ahead and admit I have no idea how you do that. I'll try to mess around but I wouldn't expect very advanced editing from me)

    -There's nothign aI can do about the microphone's position, I'm afraid. It's a headset with a rigid piece attached to the earphones, it's just positioned to the side of my mouth (unless I actually pull it up and AWAY from me which isn't really the best solution either).

    -Quality is set at Livestream standard "Optimized Gaming-696Kbps". Higher makes my comp get stupid and lower is ugly (the very first videos I made had lower qualities, tho). Nothign I can do there.

    -I'm sorry but that's not really something I can easily fix. It's impossible for me to watch my pronounciation and be spontaneus at the same time. I am not concentrating on speaking well, but on spaking when it comes to me and not let the LP be too quiet.

    I don't actively try to speak badly (of course XD), but I can't fix that very much just by trying. If I concentrated on every wod it'd be a very boring LP as I'd be correcting myself all the time. I can understand people not liking this aspect and choosign not to watch the videos, this is fine and I have nothign against them for it, it's just how it is.

    -I am not entirely in agreement with this, so I'll ask around. Personally I consider that when you're in a livestream and need to take a break you can just get up and away to do your stuff, and when you're watching a video you can just pause. Cutting in pieces at random times when I'm happily rushign forward sems to cut momentum too, and..well, not sure. In any case, I'll ask around and see what the opinion for this is. Maybe you're right, we'll see.

    As for your game...I'm sorry but, while I'm not tryign to be agressive when saying this: whenever I've seen you receiving feedback it's always been with problematic results, and I do not want to deal with that. I've also seen some of your games and they don't really mix with my tastes, so I'll pass.
    In any case, thanks for the feedback. I will try to fix what I can, but it's safe to say I am neither an expert nor (let's be honest) aiming to be the best LPer of all times. My computer and rig isnt anythign special either, but well, I'll see what I can do.

    A question to everybody:

    Should I split the stream sessions and/or videos in shorter segments or leave them long? How long should each segment be? 15, 30 minutes?

    Any input is appreciated, thanks.

    I was gonna say if there's this other guy who would argue that it's not difficult and it's a good game and you just suck at playing will pop in too if she uploads it in her YT. >_>

    Ness, I've played Ill Will, and while I never understood the mechanics, and still don't, I never once complained about the design of your mapping or use if nodes as items. That being said, I hope that Indrah takes a look at the new demo and enjoys it.

    Ness is saying that one of my associates may or may not defend my project if Indrah puts it on youtube and trashes it like she did.

    Just for curiosity Indrah, is there an RM game that you particularly enjoyed playing?
