Epic Battle Fantasy 5 will officially be released on Steam on November 30th!
(I reserve the right to delay it if anything catastrophic happens before then.)
The price is $15, and everyone who owns EBF4 will receive a coupon for 20% shortly after launch.
The free web version will probably be out sometime early 2019, whenever I’ve fully recovered from the Steam launch.
Also, here’s another group of fanart, by ghostserexi, MikalaMouse and SunnyTheSunFlower.
I’m still polishing off the rough edges on EBF5. Even though the game is basically finished, every day someone finds some new problems for me to fix. Some recent issues include: naming captured foes certain things could break your saved files, the Flashplayer Plugin was required for the Steam version to run when it shouldn’t be needed, and 2 treasure chests were still bugged. Better to fix stuff like this before launch rather than after, I suppose.
Anyway, here’s some older fanarts that haven’t been featured yet.
Here’s some fanart from SnowyDot.
I’ve finished all of the Steam features for EBF5, so the game will be ready to ship once the translations are done, and once I’ve had a few people test the final build for me. I’ll be announcing the release date very soon, but for now I’ll just say it’ll be before Christmas.
10,241 people so far have EBF5 on their Steam wishlist. Let’s try to beat EBF4′s Greenlight votes, and aim for over 15K. Please add it to your wishlist!
Got some Korean fanart from 만화과학자(만과).
I spent the day translating the EBF5 trailer, so you’ll soon be seeing those appear on my YouTube…
Got some fanart from ProfCarrot.
Halloween was cool, a total of 47 kids showed up at my door, and some of them were genuinely afraid to take candy from me in my Scream costume. Feels good, man.
Here’s more fanart by MikalaMouse.
In other news, sales of EBF4 are starting to dry up on Steam. I can’t really complain since the game is almost 5 years old on there… but if you own the game and haven’t left a nice review yet… you could maybe… you know…
Here’s some fanart by Ghostserexi.
We’re still working on EBF5 translations, so I don’t have much to report.
Here’s some fanart from Lost-Pyromaniac.
Besides translations, I’m still doing some balancing, so maybe in the next EBF5 beta you’ll see some different weapon stats.
I made another animated gif out of art by Urkikk.
Here’s some fanart of the EBF5 party and their evil counterparts, by Lunas!
