My trip to London and the Rezzed expo was cool.
I collected a lot of stickers and met a bunch of people, and saw some neat games – but will probably never play most of them due to my already huge wish list. The venue the event was hosted at was an old dock (it was pretty cool) and the event was largely focused on indie games. I’ll likely go again next year.
I ranted a lot about what happened to Flash, and a lot of other developers are in similar situations to mine: they started off making Flash games for fun but have since moved onto other types of work using newer tech, mostly Unity. (I’ll probably head that way after EBF5 too…)
I also visited the Imperial War Museum and the Tate Modern, with the former being a really cool historical collection of vehicles, weapons, and propaganda, and the latter being a lot of space wasted on crap modern art.
Alright, I’ve finished off player dialogue and released another World Demo on Patreon, which is much like the first demo but some missing stuff has been filled in. (Chest contents, achievements, dialogue, map menu, etc.) Basically you can explore the whole world map, without battles, and spend near 10 hours finding everything.
Now I can finally move on to something new, woop!
It’s time to do battle backgrounds!
Hey guys, if you recall some of my old rants, I’m really worried about online privacy, freedom of speech, and big tech companies like Facebook taking over the world. Lately I’ve started using Telegram for instant messaging (Desktop & Mobile) in an attempt to rely on Facebook less, and my favourite thing about it is that you can make your own sticker packs! So once I got bored of spamming Pepe the frog memes, I made two EBF packs: One is the characters in the cutout style, and the other is the character emoticons from the game.
Anyway, I like Telegram a lot because it reminds me of the old days of instant messaging: where you could post whatever you wanted and didn’t have to worry about some huge corporation recording all of your personal data. It’s even popular with ISIS, so it must be good for privacy.
Also before someone mentions Whatsapp: that’s also owned by Facebook.
Alright, that’s enough shilling for now. Let me know if there’s any other apps that can use custom sticker packs, and maybe I’ll put these on there too.
Hey guys, here’s my favourite cutscene I’ve made so far, and it’s also not spoilery, so here ya go.
I’m gonna have to cut some of these into wallpaper size at some point, and stick ‘em on Patreon and as hidden goodies in the final game.
