Really big halloween this year. Bought 23kg of pumpkins and squashes, and spent yesterday and today decorating the place. We cooked about 6kg pumpkin, which gets us cupcakes, and a ton of soup. Also lots of seeds to snack on for days.
111 kids showed up at the door! Many of them ran off crying. Even scared some dogs. Good result.
We’re off to a big Halloween party tomorrow. I’m going as a pro-democracy protestor for that one.
The Grand Gallery area has been updated with 2 new rooms and tons of new art. The game now features a whopping 71 pieces of fanart, and 31 bits of concept art. If you follow my blogs closely, you’ll have already seen all of that art, but there’s also some new dialogue to go along with it.
Also, EBF5 version 2 is now 80% complete! All that’s left to do is: • Finish the Equip Remix mode. • Misc Quality of Life improvements. • Some (but not all) debugging and balancing. • A quick playthrough or two of the game by me. • Version 2 trailer.
After those it’ll be beta testing time, which should be by the end of November, in time for the anniversary of EBF5’s Steam launch. Patrons should get it a week or two earlier than that, and everyone else can opt-into the beta on Steam.
Beta testing will likely take a long time, since due to the nature of the update, players will have to play through the game several times with different options to try everything out. And there’s tons of new content to balance too. And finally, translations will also be happening at the same time – so the beta will be only in English at first. If you’re waiting for the 100% finished version, it’ll probably be soon after Christmas.
Now that the website has undergone some updates it’s time to get back into our regularly irregular fanart broadcasting! First item on the agenda is a cute piece of Lancelot and Annabelle from Hana-Pong.
Hey guys, I think the site update is done now. Let me know if you notice any accidental changes to the site – it should look exactly the same. The only difference I’ve noticed so far is that the emoticons look a bit different, so maybe I can fix that later.
The software running the website has been updated by a few years, so I’ll have to play around with it and see what new features it has. Maybe I’ll add more stuff at the right side of the site.
Anyway, since Halloween is coming up, here’s some EBF5 pumpkins. I’m getting close to a lot of milestones, so that progress bar is gonna jump up a lot soon.
Hey guys, over the next couple of days I’ll be trying to update this site.
Don’t be surprised if it goes down for a while, or looks a bit different when it comes back!
Update: Turns out my website is so out-of-date that there’s a few extra steps.
It’s likely that the layout of the site will be mangled by the update, so I’ll probably have to do some work to make it pretty again.
