EBF5: Blast from the Past

That last post was by Ronja btw. I’m still at home.

I’m working on an area in EBF5 where you can fight monsters from the previous games. The monsters will be as authentic as possible – sticking to the animations and mechanics from those games. The EBF1 monsters don’t even have evade and accuracy. Oh, and you can only use 2 or 3 players at a time against them. All those debuff attacks they used back then are going to be a lot more devastating in EBF5′s buff system…

There’s going to be 6 or so foes from each game, including 2 bosses from each.

I was going to put them all into a “Temple of Time” where you can visit different dimensions, but I’ve dropped that idea as it would be hard to explain why the graphics and mechanics are different. So I’ve got a different location planned, one that should explain the premise better.

Fanart: Natalie Plush

Hi Folks!

I’m currently in Finland on a quick trip to take care of some paperwork and attend a close friend’s bachelorette party. Turns out timing could not have been more perfect when yesterday at the finale Finland beat Canada 3-1 and won the Ice Hockey World Championship tournament. This is the third time it’s ever happened, and the first I’ve been able to join in on the celebrations in Helsinki. Everyone gathers into the Market Square in the city center to celebrate together, and the atmosphere is incredible. I’m very lucky I happened to be here for this, since no one in Scotland really cares for ice hockey and I usually watch it alone.

Here’s a Natalie plush someone on the EBF Discord commissioned from an Etsy seller.

EBF5: Monster Cards

So it turns out that I’m cursed, and I can’t do any creative stuff for fun anymore.
I’m turning my Fakemon art into collectable cards in EBF5. They’ll give small permanent perks, like Steroids do, but should be more fun to collect.

This also means that I should stop spoiling all the art, and I’ll keep the rest of the Fakemon a secret.

Slimes

Here’s some more Fakemon. I started off doing these for fun, but I’ve figured out a way to use them in EBF5. Fakemon aren’t real, so you can’t battle them. But there may be a way to collect them…

Gloops

Hey guys, here’s some more fakemon.

Looks like I’m drawing for fun again. Which is kinda nice, but you’ll probably never get any games out of this stuff.
