Hmm, I may skip tomorrow's #screenshotsaturday

I had a small issue this week which set me back ~4 hours... I think I closed RPGMV without saving or something ;_;

Anyways, I manage to redo all the lost work already :)

But yeah, on top of that the news this week are not the best :(


HawkZombie did an LP of the demo and I loved it, really cheered me up after the setback I had!

Hey great demo, I really enjoyed it and even forwarded the link to my brother which I don't normally do :p

The only thing that bothered me was how loud the cursor SE is in the main menu (when you move up and down). The first thing I did was lower the SE volume because of that.

Other than that you have a pretty awesome game here, congrats!

Thank you! And I will take your feedback into account for the release :)

Latest update... You can pet Scar! This is not available in the demo, since I just finally added it. Went for a custom sprite only for this lol :)

I'm nearing completion of a build that can be played from the beginning all the way to the two endings, including sidequests!

After this comes extensive testing...

All in all, I'm still very optimistic about releasing this year! :)

Important update:


The old tiles are 5 years old, and well, Manafinder's style has evolved since then. I'm still attached to them, but I believe the new ones are cleaner, and most importantly consistent with the rest of the game.

I'm very happy with the new look, I hope you all like them too! :)

The left are the older ones, which I agree gave it a more unique feel. The new ones are definitely cleaner though. Tough call, both are good!
I like the left image :) (if that is the newer one).

I did end up going with the right ones. They end up being cleaner and more consistent with the rest of the game. I do appreciate your honesty though. It was a hard call, it took me a while to finally do it, but it had been bugging me for a while now.

In other news... Manafinder development is moving along pretty nicely! The game is now playable 100%. I've sent a few builds to testers to start getting ready for release!

I dont mind what you choose, it's your game, but if it fits, why not.
I love to hard glitch the game where possible and for graphical issues
if they are there, but nice job :)

Manafinder is currently part of the INDIE Live Expo 2022 Steam sale!


It was also featured in their stream! YT links below include the timestamp where Manafinder appears :)

And last but not least RPG Site covered Manafinder! I was unaware of it until a friend told me lol

Time for the next chance for y'all to affect my advent calendar! Where should Day 7's sprite come from: land, sea, or demon realm? :rwink:
Throné's final boss is weird. He is a guy holding a baby while fighting off attackers. I think his name was Santos. I might be thinking of someone else.
I think I've just about finished fighting the fight with the tileset I was most intimidated by for game jam. No pictures yet, the map isn't presentable, but I think the tileset will work! I'm very relieved XD
Twitch! At it again with more gamedev for a couple hours, followed by some Valheim with my friend. Feel free to drop by~
these 80+ gb updates on several years old games are the absolute worst. I just want to play for an hour or so before bed to unwind. Sorry, gotta spend that time downloading an update. Then my mods will be broken so I'll have to start over or wait for those to be updated to. Is a complete game within three years of the pay to be a beta tester period really to much to ask?
