    Excellent, this one really caught my eye. However, I prefer to comment only after I have played, so I will keep an eye on it. As soon as you launch a Demo, I'll show up.

    Much love for Shroombie's headbutts :kaoluv:

    Your sprites are adorable, and the art was beautiful too, but I'm sure your new artist will do great as well. Speedbumps are part of the development.

    Best of luck. I'll be watching your progress, with binoculars from behind a bush :p

    Thanks! I'm hoping to launch a (very brief) demo in the very near future, which is intended to showcase the ABS and perhaps one or two of the minigames. Not sure I'll do anything larger, as this is going to be a relatively short project. We'll see though. I'll also have another update soon! Lots of new things to show everybody! :D

    I am sitting here gushing over your beautiful parallaxing and the cute little sprites :kaoluv:
    Great work so far, looking forward to see how this one turns out!

    Hey, everybody!

    The last week or so has certainly had some setbacks, but thanks to my dear friend, @Plueschkatze , we are back on track. She has agreed to take up the portrait commissions and I am extremely grateful for that. Her work is amazing, and I highly recommend you check out her shop if you need work done. Her own project, Ceress and Orea will be released in just a few days, as well!

    So glad to be getting caught up:

    Happy News days are the best days.

    Wow, go @Plueschkatze ! :) They're beautiful and they fit so well with your army of cute sprites. :popcorn:

    Thanks! And having @Plueschkatze onboard with the project just feels right. She's been such a huge part of my support system over the past months, and I'm glad she's able to take a larger role in the implementation of this concept. We've both come to love these characters so much, it is only fitting that she be the one to render them. :)

    Here are a few updates on where we are right now:

    • A few new maps are in progress, though I want to wait until they are a bit more substantial before posting. We're working hard on the underwater caverns where players will be able to explore, and of course, spearfish!
    • @futrchamp has been hard at work on the Ceress and Orea OST, which is now available for preorder, by the way, but he has still found some time to knock out some amazing tracks for Moiety. We'll have more for you on this soon.
    • We're heavily immersed in spritework right now, and I have a few new attacks to showcase. Our next sprite project will actually be for our Suikoden-styled duel system, so that is going to be a bit of an undertaking, I think. Time will tell, but we'll hopefully have something to show you in that vein very soon!
    • Finally, Plue is absolutely flying through these portrait renderings, and we're now happy to present Ellie and Amari's father, Matak, the village chieftain and standing Archon.

    This project has had some very interesting ups and downs, but then, what project doesn't? I'm looking forward to bringing this story to all of you very soon. I hope everyone is able to enjoy it as much as we have. :)

    Happy dev'ing!

    I agree, but I wouldn't want to come against a biting spider that large in real life. :p

    The spider isn't trying to bite anyone, it's only.... stretching... yeah it's stretching. (sweet denial!!!).

    You have @futrchamp on this too? Well, my interest in this game went up another notch!
    Can't wait to hear what he'll make for you. :kaojoy:

    He is quite the large spider! Then again, I think most people are going to have a problem fighting something so cute. :)

    @starlight dream , here is the standing OST that @futrchamp has created. Every one of these is absolutely masterful, and I am extremely grateful to have his talent onboard with this project:



    "And So the Sun Sets" is my current personal favorite. :)

    Oh I gotta listen to this right away!!! <3 <3 <3 He's one of my favourite composers in the community.

    Edit:
    @Gabrelik Those were all beautiful and fun to listen to. The kind of music you can listen over and over to.

    My favourites are "Amari's Darkness" and "And So The Sun Sets".
    But I love the title theme as well. :)

    @futrchamp has an amazing talent for capturing exactly what a character represents, and conveys their disposition perfectly through his music. "Amari's Darkness" is among my favorites, as well, and I really feel that her character is going to be a fan favorite (I know she's mine. I shouldn't be biased, but Amari is love. :guffaw:) We have at least three or four more tracks to finish, which are in the planning stages now.

    I couldn't ask for a more talented composer or portrait artist. Our little IGMC team has become like extended family to me over this past year, and I'm extremely thankful I got to meet and work with them. All three have been amazingly supportive and I know Moiety will be a great success because of that. :)

    More updates soon everybody, and if you haven't already, swing by and check out Plue's game! It just launched yesterday and I think people are really going to love it.

    I'll have some map WIPs up for you tomorrow, and if I'm lucky, I might even be able to put together a short preview video of the ABS in action with some of the newer creatures. Happy dev'ing! :rock-left:B):rock-right:

    I was listening to the tracks and felt that they blended so well with the map and the cute girl characters (especially the "Village" track), though I don't know the game yet.

    Happy that you have such a solid team behind you. It matches your creative effort, which looks like a lot of work as well.
    I snatched Plue's game as well as the soundtrack & can't wait to play it ^^b

    A question about your Game. Is there a meaning behind the name "Moiety" or it's something you invented?
    Looking forward to your updates :)

    Moiety is defined as being two parts of a whole, which in this case relates to Ellie and her sister, Amari. Each girl represents their respective side of the balance between light and dark. Nature cannot exist without both, and people are no exception. None of us are inherently good, and none inherently evil. We are all just human, and struggling to do the best we can. :)

    Sorry about the absence! I took a new job in Florida and am in the process of relocating. It has unfortunately slowed me down a bit, but we'll be back to good in no time. Thanks everybody, for your patience. :)
