Extremely sorry for the amazing lack of updates.
Rest assured, development is going quite smoothly and I have loads of
changes to show to all of you (who’s still interested). ūüėõ

Anyway, I’ve got one last week of school left, and after that expect more regular updates
on Starlight. Also, E3 is this week. Super hyped for the Wii U, 3DS, and Halo 4!
Oh, and more crappy Kinect games…I’m looking at YOU Kinect Star Wars!¬†
Expect me to post some stuff about E3 too this week.

‘Till next time, broskis~¬†


Hey guys.

First off, sorry for the extreme lack of updates. I’ve been really busy with real life stuff.
However, a LOT of things have changed in the past month. I think I’ll save these
updates for a bigger blog post, but for now I leave you with THIS.

This is the Rockethub page for Starlight Adventure CXVIII.
In case you don’t know what it is, it’s a crowd-funding website, similar to Kickstarter.
If you guys could donate some money Рany amount of money Рit would
be really great, and would really help me out in developing this game. Plus, the page
itself may give a hint or two on what updates have gone on…

Anyway, stay tuned. Everything will be explained in further detail soon.
‘Till next time, I’m out.¬†


Hey guys, sorry for the extreme lack of updates!
SACXVIII is going through a bit of an overhaul, so more will be revealed later.

For now, I’d like your opinion on something. If there was one thing you’d like changed
from the demo, what would it be? Please comment on this, thanks!

Also, NicoB is doing an LT of the demo. Last part is coming soon.

Finally, this¬†Project Shadow¬†I’ve been yappin’ about as of recent will
be finally revealed very shortly! So stay tuned folks! Oh, and the blog theme changed too. 

‘Till next time, gang.

4/8/12 – Happy Easter!

Hey gang. Short post today, since it’s quite late.

Liberty made an LP (let’s play) of my contest entry,
The Legend of Ace: Trial Adventure. Watch the full playlist here!
I love her narration, especially of Amy.

Second, I’m getting $1000+ to develop Starlight Adventure CXVIII¬†and Project Shadow
in the next week, thanks to a fundraiser. The first thing I’m doing is buying a new laptop,
preferably one suited for gaming. That, and my current one is old and stubborn to use.
I will be using it on other stuff, which will be revealed later.

Anyway, that’s it for today! Happy Easter, everyone!¬†

Hey gang. It’s been awhile, hasn’t it?
Anyway, I got lotsa new stuff to share!

First off, I’m in a bit of a pickle, and I need you guys to help me.
I’ve been thinking of adding a “Donation” button to the right. With the donations, it’ll
help me get a better experience for Starlight Adventure CXVIII, and another group project.
What do you guys think?

Second, as you can tell by the title, I’ve been on spring break for the past week.
Trust me, it was a well needed break. All I’ve been doing is sleeping, playing vidya gaems, and RM’ing.
Oh, and I saw The Hunger Games, which has to be the best movie to come out this year. So far, at least.

So with a full week off, that means I’ve done a lot of work on SACXVIII, right?
Well…no. I’m basically at the same place that I was a week ago: mapping and finishing a cutscene.
BUT. I have been working on another game.

Since last year, I’ve decided to try to make and finish one game during spring break.
Last year, I made a platformer called Jump It!, and it got a decent amount of attention and downloads.
This year, I went on RMN and saw there was a contest to get a free english copy of Ace, which I
desperately need. So, for the contest, I created a little game called
The Legend of Ace: Trial Adventure.

It’s still not complete: I’ve got a bit more to do before I can sumbit it (the deadline is later today, I believe),
so I really gotta get crackin’ on it. Thankfully, the contest is open-ended, and the game
doesn’t have to be FULLY complete.¬†Anyway, here’s some screens of it:

Finally, ¬†KasierKami¬†and NicoB¬†are doing their own (seperate) “let’s play”‘s of¬†Starlight Adventure CXVIII.
It’s a good chance to get feedback from them, especially from Nico since I’ve seen some of his videos,
and he always has (mostly) legit critiscms.

Anyway, that’s enough of my news. Now some stuff from other lands:

  • Infamous Bon Bon makes some awesome icons I may use in the future.
  • Yanfly posts some were-cows. Do want.
  • EvilEagles makes some more side-view battlers. Lookin’ good, Evil!
  • Archeia_Nessiah makes a tutorial on bust shots and shiz. Seems like it’ll help a few people out!
  • I recently beat¬†Blinx 2,¬†an awesome, yet obscure Xbox game, and purchase¬†Pikmin!

That’s all for now! ‘Till next time, later gang.

Hey gang.

Some blog news. I added a new page called “Resources”. There’s not much now,
but more will be coming soon. Also, I’ll be adding a seperate page
(complete with child pages) for SACXVIII tomorrow. So wait for that.

Now some game news. I completely finished Fort Xenovagan, the second
dungeon of the game. You have to blow it up in the end. :3

 (This one is outdated. A tint and a treasure chest was added after the time this was taken.)

Anyway, it’s about 11 PM here, and I’m tired. An full post will be made tomorrow.
Until then, goodnight everyone! :3 

3/16/12 – New Demo Arrival

Hey gang.

  • Fixed typos
  • Changed treasure chest items in Snowsha Tower

  • Other general fixes

Also, I updated the “Projects” page. Check it out here.
I mainly did it out of boredom. And finally, news from other lands and random stuff.

Noob¬†deleted his RPG Maker Rage Comic blog. It made me very sad face. ūüė•
Yanfly is taking a break from scripting. Rest easy!
Luchino-Chan is using panel-based images for some of her cutscenes. Very nice, Luchi!
Erangot needs some moolah for college. Help her out. I know I certainly will in the near future!
CrimsonItsuki¬†introduced me to a new anime. It’s called Rosario+Vampire, and it’s amazing. Watch it nao! :3

That’s all for now. Enjoy the game and gimme your feedback! :3

Hey gang.

First, some news from other lands as usual:

A bit late, but EvilEagles¬†released some awesome icons. Check ’em out!
Found a nice scripter named Pacman. Go over there and show some luv. ūüėČ I also love the backround.
Yami released the beta version of her Patching System.

Been learning how to code in Flash. I think it’s goin’ pretty well.
I’ve also been dabbling with sprites and stuff, and makin’ fake logos. If I consider them good enough,
I might make a logo shop…or something.

On to business, then. I’ve been replaying¬†Final Fantasy XII, and it happens to be one of my favorite games too.
I’ve nearly finished a dungeon, when suddenly, a come upon “that one boss”. GOD, it’s infuriating!
I don’t think I’ll be able to finish it unless a grind a lot more.

Therefore, I consider it a learning experience. In fact, most games I consider to be a learning experience
to improve SACXVIII. So here’s what I’ve learned from XII:

  • Less of need to grind
  • No cheap bosses (one’s that constantly stun you, create clones of¬†themselves, etc.)
  • All deads ends should have some kind of treasure chest or something
    (walking down a long path and not finding anything is infuriating)
  • Keep the story going when in dungeons; this is main reason the player response-free text
    is implented in the game.
  • ¬†A save crystal before every boss (the boss I’m stuck at requires you to trek five minutes from the
    last save crystal to the boss, which is very tedious)
  • More puzzles in dungeons

Snowsha Tower (the first dungeon of the game) will only have small, easy sliding puzzles, simply acting as a noob cave.
Fort Evans (the second ‘dungeon’) will have next to no major puzzles.
Later dungeons will have many more challenging puzzles, however. Rest assured, all of them will have lots of treasure.

Now I have more bad and good game news. Let’s start with the good.
I started mapping Treasure Forest, an optional location in the game where (take a hint) treasure is plentiful.
However, it’s filled with hard enemies. Most of the database is completed, too, and I edited the intro slightly.
Now it shows the game logo after the scrolling text is gone.

But now, some bad news. The new demo will have to be delayed.
I’ve been way too busy for my own good. Our school musical had some rehearsal problems, and now we have
to work our butt off until late in the night. I still have to do a LOT of NPC’s, which is quite challenging seeing that
many of them have to some funny dialogue. Not to mention I only have a small supply of actual NPC sprites,
and generating new ones is very time consuming.

Anyway, new demo should be coming soon, maybe next weekend. Maybe.
Until then, peace out gang.
