EBF5: Making the World

Here’s a video of me making a map for EBF5, 600% sped up. The original recording was 45 minutes long. What’s not shown here is me putting in a few lines of code to make the interactive objects work, and cleaning up a few details at the end. Also I cut out the bits where I copied sprites from other maps, to avoid spoilers.

EBF5: Minecraft

Here’s an EBF Minecraft scene from RoboIepiii34.

I didn’t get much work done this week because I was celebrating Halloween (cooked 8kg of pumpkin) and almost bought a house (it’s not a good market for buyers right now…), but next week I’ll aim to crunch forward.

EBF5: Halloween House

Here’s a seasonal house for ya. I think I’m doing a much better job this time of making each house look unique: They’ve all got a different theme going on in them. The world map is going well but it’s taking longer than planned… mostly because it’s a bit bigger than it needs to be. I’m sure no one will complain once it’s done.

Also huge thanks for the Patreon pledges! I’m at $400 per month already!
I hope my patrons will be patient as there won’t be any exclusive content for them until the world map is done… or maybe I’ll just post the first half of it earlier. *shrugs*

Thoughts About Patreon (part 2)

This is a continuation of my previous post, where I explained why I’m considering making a Patreon. No one seemed to have any major objections to me setting up a Patreon, as long as I stuck to the rules I outlined there.

I’ve spent the day researching what other creators have done with Patreon, and I’ve come up with this list of reward tiers. I’d be interested to hear what you think of these:

Supporter: $1 per month
• Get early access to buggy, spoiler-full, alpha versions/demos that otherwise won’t be released to the public until they are finished. Over the next few months this will include the entire EBF5 world map, and a boss fight demo.
• You also get the “Supporter” role on the EBF Discord, making you a trusted user who can post links and images in any channel, and gives you access to the “Alpha Discussion” and “Alpha Bugs” channels for discussing the content mentioned above. (You still gotta follow the rules!)
• And finally the loyalty program: With your continued support, you can request a Steam key for any of my games for every $15 you’ve given. (you can give extra keys to your friends or use this as a way to pre-order future games)

Super Supporter: $4 per month
• Same as the above, but you get the “Super Supporter” Discord role, which does nothing besides letting you show off.

Wall of Thanks: $8 per month
• Get your name listed on the “Wall of Thanks” on my website, KupoGames.com, letting visitors know that you’re kind of cool!
• This lasts as long as your contribution does, and can include a link to some profile or website of yours. (subject to my approval, maybe contact me with your details first!)
+ Includes Super Supporter perks
(100 slots only)
