    Yay, I made a sprite... of a sprite! You see, sprites are fairy-like nature spirits. This one is a cute nature spirit of autumn! Edit: Better side animation, no ember things.

    *Waves* The place has had a name change but I found it. Greetings to those that know me and hey to those who don't. I've started working on my Animated Battlers again so I'm around trying to spread the word once again. Aluxes/Estelle/Elicia are my old ones.

    Corruption of Laetitia

    It is done~! After all these years I finally finished this game. I will tell you it was a huge trip. Adding story branches and different endings. Trying to make the characters feel likable (Or even relatable?) And the world feel lived-in. I don't think anything was ever this hard or time consuming. 4000 hours went into crafting this game from start to finish. But in the end I'm happy I did it. Not for the money (As the game is free) or for any hope of being noticed. But just to feel like the passion of writing this story and making it playable produced something tangible. For those who still followed this thread to the end (If anyone) I thank you. The game is free to download at http://www.mediafire.com/file/64psm8e63hfbzu0/Corruption_of_Laetitia.exe/file Or if you want to see a little more you can visit the site I set up for it at http://laetitia-rpg.000webhostapp.com/ Once again, Thank you all. This was a hell of a ride. Once I collect myself I will ask for an admin to move this thread to "Completed games" Where it can continue to wither and die as it has been all these years~!

    Hi everyone, I've been building a library of images that you are welcome to freely use in your projects. They are all original...all my own work. I think a lot of them could be made into cool textures for games. All I ask is to be attributed as indicated on my homepage: http://soundimage.org/ The images are on my "TXR" pages. I'm adding new ones all the time, so be sure to check back often. I sincerely hope that some of them are useful. Any and all constructive feedback is welcome and always appreciated. All the best, Eric

    (clamps hands over ears to silence the cheers, the jeers and the horns) ALRIGHT ALREADY!!!! lolz Anyway, there's not much to say more than yes, those of you who were hoping I'd finally release a demo, are gonna get your wish. However, there are caveats to note: I'm still working on a lot of things, and right now, I don't really have a lot of critical things in place, so the first demo release is not going to be feature-filled. What can be expected: A short demo, mostly text by the main character and/or the narrator. Half an hour of gameplay tops A good amount of potential bugs and glitches, mayhaps even Interpreter crashes (need your help in testing!) Some 'easter eggs' Plenty of Ramsey's vulgarities No censorship No saving (kinda pointless as there's only one major event) Mack's/Looseleaf sprite graphics combined with MV hair (it works well honestly) and MV-style face sets Political/Religious references and mockery plus a strong LGBT+ representation (now and going forward!) What's being worked on: The battle system and battler graphics (I have not found graphics for things like police, military, and so on-do they even exist?), no battles yet Inventory items, shops and the mercantile system (as of now the third of the three is pretty broken) Clothing/face bits for all twenty-four possible playable characters (only a few have their basic clothing all done with some others having placeholders) Story is still being fleshed out (I have a lot already written down) Icon graphics (a lot are done but there's much left to do) Title screen art (gonna need help with this-somehow) Sorcery system and passive skills (I have a few of the latter done as well as one Destruction element of the former done) Relationship system possibilities (mostly just a proof of concept as of now) Custom Map UI (as in a scene that shows a map screen and where certain things are on it) A soft game menu screen that allows the player to leave the game but still technically be playing the game (I have the visuals made but they're not refined yet) What's planned: Multiple endings (I have one 'true' ending in mind) Multiple, replayable game story chapters akin to how Half Minute Hero does it Character building that caters to the player NSFW/Mature scenes (I'd love to have these as visual scenes but for now they will be text only) A way to force game/chapter restarts (Hard Game Overs) in the case of something truly horrific happening (I don't know if it is possible though) Cameos from other games and media (I already have a couple of these partially finished) Supporters and those whom have aided me thus far: My team (KBGaming): Aylee, Celica, Claire, Fiena, and Rachael Dearest love @Kayzee, whom has been great with RGSS3 stuffs @Rikifive, whom has also aided me in RGSS3 stuffs @AutumnAbsinthe, fellow femme fair who loves horror and memes as much as anyone @Verdiløs Games, whom hasn't been around in a bit, is hopefully recovering well. You, among many others, have aided and supported me. Merci beaucoup. I hope you enjoy my vision.

    In the face of depression, unrequited love, and financial debt, I must now more than ever before finish a commercially viable project or enter the... job market, yuck. Will I prevail? Will Scrum come to my aid in these dire times? Stay tuned for the next exciting episode of... Life of a wannabe game programmer.

    I thought of a fun plot twist: What if there was a character who said they didn't know who they are, so everyone assumes they lost their memories, but they didn't and never actually said that. They instead decided to throw away their old identity because they ended up not liking who they became. They knew who they were, just not who they are. Doubt I will ever use this in anything though.

    So, even the paywall hype train has hit the RM community. I mean, the patreon garbage kind of paywall. Yanfly, you've really sunk down to the levels of the likes of dirty devs and asset flippers, but I guess it doesn't surprise me. It's either money or nothing. You know what that actually is? Greed. You could of put your plugins on Steam or somewhere where purchase would be much easier, but no, you gave the underprivileged the finger instead with sleazy Patreon. The Orwellian nightmare continues...

    I decided to put some music I made for my game up on Soundcloud. I have used it before to share a track or two to people privately but I put a bunch of stuff as public today. I just figured since I haven't been working on my game much lately I might as well upload some of the music that I feel kinda proud of, just so something I have been working on is out there somewhere.

    Empty pages are related to the separate routes, due to the way I set them up (A huge list of conditional branches and the like) the pages can be collected out of order and some casn't be collected at all if you go a different route. It's a bit confusing but I really know no way to fix it without removing page numbering altogether which.. gets even more confusing. Edit: I looked up the issue with page 30, it indeed can occur based on certain choices due to a typo. It will be fixed in the next version: I would do that with having both versions, but the artist I am working with would rather I don't reveal too much of the art before it is all finished.(I got permission to include one of the images) Which a bit of a bummer since that means I can't use it for promotional material and the like... But I'd like to adhere to his wishes since this is the only artist that agreed to work for me out of many, the only thing I could do is have a version where all the art is ripped out and replaced by blank images since for most of them I don't have the old artworks due to my backup storage device getting damaged. And the current release of the project had everything compressed and locked away. Maybe that is the option I have to go with. But I will see once I talked to the artist. I will quickly make a branching version without the new scenes that don't have any art yet as I don't want to spoil them before they get it. I may end up doing the save point system. Though I'm certain I'm going to catch flak for that. And it will likely create a host of new bugs. It's really just the last way I know to get rid of the overhead tiles bug since it only occurs when you save. Edit2: The people I asked about the bug say that it's really not something I should fix if the fix removes the ability to save everywhere, Completely remaking the game is also not an option considering 4+ years went into making it and I know the few people that wanted to play it have already played it. It's unlikely I can gather the willpower to finish that gargantuan task with that in mind. (Not to mention the remake would have to be entirely parallax mapped to have the same effect, which takes way longer. Would lag more. And have a terrifyingly huge filesize.) I will talk to my artist and ask for permission to patch the game including the updated art they did so far. If not I will remove the updated art and replace them with obvious placeholders.

    A lot of these, except the tavernkeep one, were intentional and shouldn't cause issues as long as one of the scripts doesn't glitch, (One that allows the player to walk underneath walls)now I know that the chance exists that it does though a lot of things that weren't issues before suddenly are. Meaning I have a lot of extra work to do. I hope I can fix them all. Regardless, while I made the fixes, I can't upload any patches for the coming time as I am in the middle of two versions and the old version is lost due to data corruption. The new one relies on the progress with my artist as a lot of scenes look really weird now, So I hope there won't be more game-breakers.

    In Forgotten Tower F2, entering the Harmony event from the lowest tile possible can cause Celeste to run into a wall, stalling the game. Similar, in the Dreamy Dryad inn, if you talk to the innkeeper from the north and pick leave, Celeste will attempt to walk south into the counter, stalling the game. Talking to the chef from the south and sparing him will also result in Celeste running south, and potentially into the wall.

    Since it's Lesbian Visibility Day, let me get this out of the way: I'm a lesbian game developer with my lovely girlfriend. After helping each other with our projects, we formed ObakeNeko Works, an indie doujin circle of like-minded yuri and game-lovers. I couldn't have asked for a better girl by my side. Thank you all for supporting us this far.

    Oof, Yeah, That was another complicated set of events, It should be working in the next patch, whenever I'll release that! Just finished uploading a patch with some fixes to the church (There's still some tiles that look like they should be walkable but aren't, but the alternative would look worse.) The inns, and other small fixes. As well as more obvious hints as to when you're approaching a 'bad end' and more ways to help avert it. Also made a more detailed character page for the three main love interests. (though full of spoilers)

    Oh my, You found a lot of problems indeed, many of which I had thought I had solved already (Some of which I fixed in the last patch last night, luckily) I didn't tie a title reward to that, but the achievement is indeed unobtainable. As for "pure dead" For some reason I forgot to actually set the title reward... Both should be fixed in the next patch! For the romance scenes, I had intended for more, But since I don't have a dedicated artist yet (Working on that) I can't go as all-out as I'd wish.. The next game I make will definitely be of less great a scope since something as complex as this just results in too many issues way too easily, I should have fixed these bugs as I speak though, Just need to test the game from start to finish again to confirm~ ...In the new "Hellish Yard" difficulty. Edit: One update further and all these bugs are (Probably) fixed. The ones that remain are the ones that only happen in very specific circumstances... When the RM engine has a weird hiccup. https://kayakoamaya.itch.io/corruption-of-laetitia

    Sprites: Mack vs Chibi

    What? MSPaint? Paint.Net? Come on, GIMP is obviously the superior image editing tool! Especially when you load up on cool plugins. Though I am using the VX Ace generator parts for my game rather then Mack sprites, editing the images can still be a pain. I needed to really mess around with the generator images I was using to get them the way I want with the character creator script I am using. I did find a few handy shortcuts for some things. Like at one point I needed to properly crop almost all of the face graphics. I figured out though that I could drag image files over a open image in gimp and it will open it in a new layer, and I found a handy dandy plugin to export layers. So basically I could crop a whole set of images at once. And once I needed to recolor a bunch of images, but luckily they all used the same palette so I was able to make one which altered the colors I want and load it in. Really though, most of the sprites I am using I am using just because I had them available. If I could I would probobly use a completely different style. Maybe Kaduki-style sprites since they are usually 8-directional and my game features 8-directional movement. I shudder to think of redoing all the generator parts if I ever switch styles though... expectantly if 8-directional sprites are used. Well likely if I ever do switch styles it will only be if I manage to captu-- er... I mean recruit a sprite artist. *pauses and notices @Amysaurus posted... starts wondering what would make good bait for an Amysaurus trap...*

    People disappear all the time. People reappear all the time. But disappearing and reappearing without much fanfare, the situations and circumstances often being all hush-hush, and with new, deadly looking wounds and scars, often after your supposed death, is something rarely heard of. In fact, outside of Revenant, Oregon, where I now live, I had never come across anything like it. I first noticed it when I moved here, and a man by the name of Jacob disappeared. No investigation was made. The higher ups at the company he worked for paid off the local law enforcement. The second weird thing was how a few days later, people saw him walking the streets at night. He supposedly showed up in a blurry security camera image outside of a morgue. Some people claimed they could made out a Y-incision on his bare chest and stomach, clearly from an autopsy, or a dissection, or a vivisection, or something to that effect. As soon as any of this was brought up though, it was drowned out by other things, and it seemed all too purposeful. It seemed too much like it was being covered up. This pattern kept popping up. People would go missing, or have all the evidence lead to their death, only for them to reappear at night, in graveyards, in morgues, in hospitals, on grainy CCTV footage, in blurry pictures. But all evidence that they reappeared would disappear. In one case I remember, one girl’s entire existence was completely erased. Most of the people have forgotten about her, and her family refuses to acknowledge she ever existed. Her name was Marina Northwood. I can’t even search for her on the internet, and she was a moderately known social media influencer. Every trace of her has been wiped clean, except for what people remember of her, and one blurry picture of her standing in a graveyard. Marina’s girlfriend, Eleanor, reportedly killed herself a year after her girlfriend’s disappearance. Police found the knife, and the blood and fingerprints were her own, but they never found a body. A few days later, somebody saw her in an alley between some houses, late one night. That person has since withdrawn the statement, but I refuse to believe that they lied. This wasn’t the first time, and it most certainly wasn’t the last. The next one I remember is a guy I want to say was named Tyrone, but I can’t remember exactly. His best friends confessed to getting into a drunken fight with him, and murdering him. The body was never found. The friends swore they never hid the body. In fact, one of them claimed that his dead friend got up, and attempted to smash his head open on a desk. He certainly had the injuries to prove it, but he later withdrew the statement. I normally wouldn’t go anywhere with this story, I would just keep it to myself, but I turned the news on tonight, and lo and behold, another disappearance. A young woman, Monica Brian, age 21. Her blood, hair, fingernails, a tooth, and some ripped up fabric were found near a dumpster in an alley. Her body was nowhere to be found. Nobody has seen or heard from her in three days. Has anyone else witnessed anything like this? Have you come into contact with anyone who has disappeared like this, only to reappear much later? Have you disappeared like this, only to reappear much later? If you know anything about this, please let me know. I have to know. I have to know what is going on here.

    I got a Hat in Time not too long ago on steam. My lappytoppy can't play it all that well unless I really put it on minimal settings but it's still cute as heck and tons of fun! I would have waited till it was ported to the switch, but I wanted to play with the new DLC and all the mods too. While I was at it, I also decided to start Super Mario Odyssey as well (I have had it for a while, but always put off playing it). It's super fun too! It isn't quite as cute though. It's still cute, but not little girl with a big top hat cute, ya know? Other then that it's striking how similar the two games are. I think my favorite '3D platformer' of all time might still be Brave Fencer Musashi, although Brave Fencer Musashi definitely follows it's own kind of formula and leans more in the direction of Zelda then Mario sometimes, so it might not be a fair comparison.

    Thank you for the feedback! And I'm glad you enjoyed the game despite it's somewhat buggy status! Sadly the first two bugs are caused by engine related problems which I really can't fix at this point. While normally they work fine, The slightest FPS drop or other kind of process spike can break them and I'm not exactly a coder. While I will look into them and see if there's a way I can make them more 'stable' I can't promise much in that regard. The slime queen bug however I am pretty sure I did something wrong there and almost certain I can fix it. I will look into that post haste. Her event is full of issues like that because I made it many years ago when I was pretty much a child X3 As for you upgrading to Abyss Oracle, that isn't supposed to happen until Your corruption is high beyond redemption (140). So I wonder what you did to get it so high up to begin with, this early~! Most of the other bugs are simple things I should be able to fix today~! (Or are already fixed in one of the 50+ patches I did) Thank you again~ I doubt I can ever make this game truly bug-free... It's way too complex for little me to handle. But I'll try and get as close to that as possible! Edit: Queen and bridge related issues are all fixed. Seems I never tested the "Kill the queen" option beyond the act itself and the results of it were never set to be called.

    Disappearing Doors

    Hehe perfect! I had a similar issue when I first started out as well. It was because when your character would access the door, the door would then move to face the player, if a door faces the player then it's going to use whatever sprite (up, down, left, etc) which was the bye bye door sprite. If make it so its direction can't move via a direction fix then the door will do as it's told. Glad I could help

    Sprites: Mack vs Chibi

    Well I admit the quality of the generator parts wasn't something I was really taking into consideration. I do like the fact that the looseleaf generator has lots of different layers for outfits, where as the built in VX Ace generator dosn't, though I think some image editing could divide lots of VX Ace's outfits into smaller parts if needed. I can't really speak on how good one or the other option looks over all since that is much more subjective. On the other hand, though this may be a bad example since it hasn't been cleaned up, but take a look at this: I just took the mack sprite and resized the body a bit and it looks like a pretty decent approximation of an equivalent chibi sprite might look like I think. The details are a bit muddy because it's basically just been resized and pasted, but I think the body could be redrawn to match those proportions and it would look just as good as the mack sprite really. Even muddy, I think most of the detail is still there. Not saying this will always turn out like that, but generally to me I think most mack sprites can be redrawn as chibi and not lose all that much. But that's just my personal opinion. Incidentally, I find resizing stuff to be a pretty good way of approximating how details will show through for a sprite of whatever size. Like look at the feet of my resized sprite there. The boots of the mack sprite are actually pretty complex with a few different armor plates, but a lot of the details of the boot got blotted together and ends up being a much simpler shape when I resized it. I think that would be a good place to simplify the design a bit if I was redrawing it as a chibi. Same idea, just with less plates. The gauntlet too could be redrawn with less plates to fit better. I don't think simplifying a design in such a way really changes much of the over all information the sprite conveys though. I don't think there are many details that would be totally lost on the chibi sprite. But this certainly isn't always the case, and don't let me make you think it would be! There are certainly sprites I have seen that do have details that would be totally lost if they were any smaller! I just don't know if the difference between the mack and chibi sprite styles is drastic enough for many of those details to be lost. But... Just out of curiosity, what if I made it even smaller? Oh gee, look at that tiny thing! Let me clean it up just a little. Hehe, I think that looks pretty cute... But yeah, a lot of things are missing or vague! And I probobly didn't do a very good job cleaning it up. Maybe the body should also be a bit wider and some of the details could come back, but yeah it definitely isn't the same is it? But I think it's still mostly recognizable at least. I kinda think it's neat just how much information they used to pack into tiny tiny sprites back in the day, but there isn't much reason to use sprites that tiny nowadays huh?
