    I don't remember being aware that was in the cards, but I honestly hardly remember the original pitch at this point. In the alpha you can control two different characters.

    It wasn't in the original pitch, but something that came up on one of the updates back in 2017.

    Shame they didn't use prerendered backgrounds, they could have used someone's toon shader in an offline renderer like Arnold to get the effect they wanted.

    I feel like this project was too ambitious and they can't bow out gracefully because it was crowdfunded. I wonder if they would have moved on to something else with a smaller scope and less mechanical complexity if not for the kickstarter.

    Steam updates the game every now and then. I'm not sure if it's just Sensuki who puts up fake updates to keep up appearances. As you know, the devs are held hostage in his basement.

    Only a indie dev would unironically make this argument..
    The glaring point that was left out was.. You are just being too fucking lazy / non-committal and should be finishing the game up in a transparent and easily-traceable way for your "shareholders" aka customers who floated your ass. This is the price you pay for not having a boss. You need to actually be accountable and somewhat responsible in your delivery / estimates.

    I'd love to tell my boss, "Oh sorry I didn't close that story on time, It's not ready yet bro.. If you want it now you can have it.. but it's a steaming pile of shit lololol"

    Indie Devs are literal pre-madonna's who can't hack it at any real career in software dev because any notion of being questioned for being too ineffectual or slow or falling below par performance wise shatters their small flimsey ego's.. So they whine and bitch on twitter to a largely non-technical fanbase - hoping everyone's eyes gloss over and they begin prostrating themselves to the mystical wizard who is dragging their feet in bug fixing.

    He's clearly referring to the eventual birth of the game. The dev will still be virginal.

    Plus we can advertise No LoAd TiMeS! like sweet games from the 90s where they streamed levels in while opening doors.

    Even if teh game turns out to be crap, my 35bucks were well invested :incline:

    There probably has been more suggested variants of combat turn-system than there have been graphics styles.

    Wuut? Think that's the 2nd or 3rd move during the CD development then.

    Maybe next game will be a the Sims/RPG moving-simulator? More to follow...
