Some time has past, but I'm happy to say that my latest BETA is available to play!:rock-left::guffaw::rock-right: **OP UPDATED WITH NEW DOWNLOAD LINKS**
This update mostly centers around battling and the general experience of it. I'm working towards making the game more fun and less grindy in feeling. So with that in mind, here's what's new under the hood!

The HP/SP/Name Displays for the Party and Enemy have been updated to better match the different new mechanics that were added. Personally, I think it looks better.



The Monstructs's skill sets have been changed to allow more variety and strategy. Just felt like I saw too many of the same skills over and over.



Now for the best part

Two new mechanics were added/reworked to give the player something cool to find and enjoy (hopefully). These will be unlocked as you get later in the game.

ENHANCEMENTS: Depending on the accessory your Monstruct has equipped, they gain new forms and powers.


FUSIONS: Two Monstructs can temporarily unite to make a more powerful being! (this took me weeks to full conceptualize and execute this!)



ROGUE MONSTRUCTS: These are Monstructs that turned against their Makers (hence the EVIL colors). But fret not! If you have a handy, dandy Destruction Scroll, you can break them down for components to use/sell.



More stuff was added, so peep the changelog below:

*******************************
BETA 2 Changelog
*******************************

==============================================================================
1. Updates
==============================================================================
1a. Added a new Gameplay Mode Called "Challenging" with more EXP and money from battles.
1b. Added a Choice for Gameplay Modes Regular and Challenging at beginning of game.
1c. Updated Monstruct skill sets with Non-Elemental skills for more variety in combat.
1d. Updated Damage to battles less grindy (hopefully).
1e. Made parties of "Rogue Monstructs" with different colors to denote their EVIL!
1f. Updated Enhancement battle mechanic.
1g. Added the Fusion battle mechanic.
1h. You can now use Destruction Scrolls to break down Rogue Monstructs into components.
1i. Updated the Party/Enemy UI for better appearance.


==============================================================================
2. Bug Fixes
==============================================================================
2a. Fixed Possible error with DASH ability.
2b. Fixed error where after bad guys plotting scene.
2c. Corrected tileset errors.
2d. Fixed damage calculations.
2e. Corrected Job/Mission clear conditions.

After a bit of stumbling. bumbling and fumbling, I made a NEW trailer. It's a bit more theatrical, but not bad.

Ssssoooo... I know it has been FOREVER since my last post, but I have made more progress on this game.

I've just released it on Itch's Holiday Sale in a bundle with another project!


Here's a bigger view of the NEW Title screen.


I'll be sharing more on what I've done in the coming days. I hope folks will like the changes so far>

Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!

Hey Gang! How's things been going? I've made a few big changes in my life and hadn't much time to Game Dev. However I have made a big change in this project. I've added a feature where you can have your Monstructs setup a merchant shop where you can get and sell items. However much you get is based on certain stats!

See here!

The other decision I've made is to release this as an Early Access game on Itch, Gamejolt and on my own site!

Not sure what to to with this since that's the case. Guess I 'll ask a mod to move it to another section. Anyway to anyone interested, thanks for following or even just checking in on occasion.

Battle Roulette

Preemptive Attacks


Both this and Slime Kingdom are available for purchase on Itch and Gamejolt, if you'd like to support my game dev endeavors. Thanks!

I did. Then I decided to release an Early access build. This is a comment that really didn't need to be made. A bit of a jerk move, really.

Made an adjustment to one of my minigames. A bit confusing, but could be fun...

I finally added my newly updated demo back to the website! It only took like 4 weeks of work...
Where is the "world-weary sigh" comment response when you need it? I need that one more than anything, but the closest we have is "wow" or "angry".
My apologies if it's out-of-place for my goyim-lookin' ass to be the one to say it, but the mythology of "Golems" is that they were created by Rabbis to protect Jewish villages from Anti-semetic attacks.
I'm moving on from RMXP finally. I've been stuck in a difficult decision between XP and MZ, and I've given up and moved on to MZ. Overall I'm really liking it, I wish tilesets were easier to setup like XP, but it's actually not that bad!
Have you ever gone full 'Ship of Theseus' while frankenspriting? Because I just did.
