EBF5: Pumpkins

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.

Website Update

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Update: Turns out my website is so out-of-date that there’s a few extra steps.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.

Discord Update

Hey guys, there’s been a few changes to the EBF Discord.
We’ve got 100 emojis now, including the totally new art you can see below.
We’ve changed some of the moderators and added a “community manager” style role, so you know who to complain to if you have issues.
We’ve also accidentally kicked people who have been inactive for a day – sorry about that, please come back!

Anyway, if you haven’t visited the Discord in a while, it may be worth taking another look.
There’s lots of cool fanart appearing there, and it’s a good place to discuss EBF and other topics.

EBF Instagram

Hey guys, me and Ronja have made an official Instagram account for Epic Battle Fantasy!

I don’t like anything owned by Facebook, but apparently Instagram is the cool new social network that everyone’s using, so we’ll give it a try. Maybe some of you will find it more convenient to follow us there, especially if you’re a mobile user.

For a while we will be reposting lots of fanart that you may have missed, but eventually the Instagram will simply show the same content as my other social media accounts. So if you think this is a good move, please give us a follow and tell your friends. And if you think we’re just selling out, then feel free to curse Facebook.

Fanart: Pixel EBF5

Here’s some fanart from Brobot_1.

In other exciting news, hi I’m Ronja and I’ll be taking over some of Matt’s social media posting – mostly just fanart for now. You might know me from earlier fanart that I’ve done, armour concepts for EBF5, the art for 7th Heaven, and most recently as the person replying to your bug reports and messages. I’m also Matt’s girlfriend, secretary, cook, maid, and butler. In my spare time I am a part-time artist and full-time plant mum.

EBF5 Coming Soon-ish and Discord Channels

Hey guys, Epic Battle Fantasy 5 now has a “Coming Soon” Steam page!
Please follow the game and add it to your wish-list, so it gets ranked above other stuff. (and obviously buy and review it when it comes out!) EBF5 will *probably* release on Steam first, for $15, with the free web version coming a few weeks later. The steam version adds about 33% more content, in the form of super hard optional dungeons, which includes the evil player battles.

In other news, the EBF Discord server now has new creative channels, including: Misc Art, Lego, and Minecraft. The EBF-Fanart channel has been quite popular so far, so if you’re a creative person and want to chat with others about stuff you’ve made, check it out.

Christmas Giveaway Results

Hey guys, the Christmas Steam key giveaway is over and I’ve sent out 40 game keys by email!

The entry requirement for the giveaway was telling me a bit about your gaming life.
I got nearly 400 entries and a lot of stories. It was nice to see that many people got into gaming playing the sorts of games I played when I was younger: Zelda and Pokemon on Nintendo consoles, Heroes of Might and Magic and Age of Empires on PC, Final Fantasy games on PS1, old stuff on emulators, free MMO games like Maple Story, and a lot of Flash games too (though I still haven’t played Mardek). I was also reminded to play Doki Doki, Hollow Knight, Cuphead, and LISA. These games are on my radar, but as always it’s just a case of playing through everything else first.

I was mildly annoyed by how popular rogue-likes were though! I think games like Binding of Isaac, Dead Cells and Enter the Gungeon would have been better off with actual designed levels instead of randomly generated ones that you were forced to replay over and over. I guess some people like their nearly endless games. But I guess I am slightly out of touch these days, as I’ve not played Team Fortress 2, Dota 2, Overwatch or PUBG.

A few people mentioned that EBF4 was the first game they played on Steam, and got them into downloadable games. Most people were very long-time fans, but there were a few that just recently played my games for the first time. Apparently quite a few people have tried playing the EBF games co-op with a friend, with each person controlling a different character in battle. This is weird, but it’s also the sort of thing I might have tried when I was younger.

Anyway, thanks for all the holiday wishes and hope you’re all having a good time!

Christmas Steam Key Giveaway 3!

(This competition is now over!)

Hey guys, it’s time for my 3rd Christmas giveaway!
I’m giving away free Steam keys for Epic Battle Fantasy 4 and Bullet Heaven 2.

If you’re interested, leave a comment about what sorts of games you play and about your gaming life in general.
How winners are chosen will continue to be a secret, but honesty is quite important. You should also mention which of the two games you want.

Make sure to fill in the email field correctly so I can email you the prize if you win.

Last year I got 531 entries and… I can’t remember how many games I gave out.
But your chances of winning are decent. The more people that enter, the more I’ll give out, so get your friends involved!

As usual I’ll be busy around Christmas, so the giveaway will end a few days after.
Probably on the 27th, so you have until then!
