This update was pretty fun. Between the new Cellianna tilesets I purchased and the puzzle making, this was one of the most enjoyable updates to make. It also features twice...

wooden ocean, update, november
v1.3.1 is here and it has more stuff than I thought it would. While there are no new areas, hence the lack of a name, it will have Spears, Rescuable Ghosts, and Pentagrams that will slow down Enemy Research when destroyed, which is the newest feature added. The enemy now slowly levels up over time (very slowly) and it's up to you to stop them. (well, more...

In my 5 or so years of using VX Ace, I´ve had 3 game corruptions. 2 of which were in the last 3 months. Added together and they equal a little over 2 months lost.

The 3rd one, which happened today while I was ironically backing it up onto a flash drive, costed over two weeks of work. I´m basically right back at the Divine Tower update. Anyways, I plan to...

The WO was originally meant to have no story. It was designed to be a semi-open dungeon crawler. Well, a little over 2 years ago, that changed when I mapped Northern Katis and decided to have plot of some kind. But it was still written half heartedly. Nothing too serious. And to be honest, it showed. I fixed it up here and there, but it´s still lacking th...

Apparently, I didn't purchase a commercial license for the facesets 2 years ago, I only purchased the non-commercial license. So until then, the game will be taken down off of itch.io and Steam Greenlight. 180$ is what I need to come up with in order to put it back up. (already spent over 800$ on the game already, so another 180 isn't the end of the world...

Well, it´s been almost two weeks now and the game now has 287 yes votes with 36% approval rating. (Most of which were in the first 48 hours) So, unless it gets some coverage or let´s plays, I´m looking at maybe a year before it gets approved.

Also, the game has been on Itch.io for 1 week now at $12.99, 71 views, and only 1 copy sold. So, I decided to red...
