Weekly Update!!1

◊ Posted by A β Pseudolonewolf
Categories: Game DesignWeekly Updates
Whoops, I've been mentally all over the place recently and have been neglecting to update this place when I update the Alora Fane site! And since I still don't have membership open there, I've no idea how many people even read those posts...

Anyway, I'm sure you'll be delighted to hear that while Miasmon is coming along well, I took a week-long break to work on a game where you make pretend people have sex with eachother. I talked about it in wearying detail here: ∞ LINK ∞

Even if you're not interested in the game, it might be interesting as an example of the game development process or something. How concepts are tried, rejected, improved. How ideas grow from a stray thought into a full project... Well, for me, anyway; I imagine Proper Developers work much more professionally!

As I mentioned in that post, I may upload this toy of a thing soon, so that's something at least, even if it's hardly MARDEK 4: Moric's Revenge.

hmm this post is getting kinda full.... any chance we can start another one so it is all about the same concept not starting from the beginning of yden and parts of AF but separate the two.

Also Matrigan I don't know about you but, Mardek is just a different type of game and it is (in my opinion) his best so far, yes the tease of mardek 4 got many people hung up on it but pseudo is getting a footing with not only code but a whole new idea. I hope to enjoy whichever project he releases next!

I don't see why you need to open alora fane if you don't want to.

I only say this because you can just post a lint to the blog post here and people from this site can comment on it.

Also I thought you said at one point Its highly likely whoever publishes the game will want it on their site first right?

all in all, please do not open alore fane to the hellish masses.

Good luck with the funding!

This is by far one of the fastest, concept to game dev bogs iv'e ever seen you do!

I'm really glad you managed to find a game that inspires you like this.

New blog post on the other site.

And a comment on an older post:

To be clear, the age numbers don't correspond to our human years; you should double the age to find the real world equivalent.

You really should double the ages in the game so there is absolutely no confusion about whether you're discussing children having sex.

Pseudo, I wish I could be there to help you... I've never felt so upset with a few members of this community before, probably due to my old stance on life that 'everyone is born good, it is how things go along and how their experiences happen that can change them'. I realized upon reading your post though, that you've gone through a lot, and I feel I understand you better than before... I've always had you in a positive light, and when I hear that you considered suicide, I realized that you're really pushing yourself a lot. You COULD take a break, but that'd be a suggestion from me and you wouldn't like that...
In truth, I used to think most of the world hated me. I had demons in my head, telling me I was dumb and crazy, unfit to live. For two years, I dealt with that, trying to push the demons back. I believe I even cut myself numerous times, but I quickly realized that pain didn't block out sadness, and it didn't distract me either. It just made me cry and more upset. While I can't really compare to your problems, I know, I can at least try to understand them.
As for the rest of your post, all I can say is that it's excellent that you can talk about your feelings to people you scarcely know. Many, many people struggle with that and fail to understand it.
I'm sure you already knew this, but the people who don't understand you truly never will until they go through something similar, whether it be depression or otherwise. For example, my brother doesn't understand when I randomly break down over menial things or cry when we're having a serious conversation, and I believe he never will unless he goes through it himself. Showing is knowing, correct?

All in all, I sincerely hope you feel better! I'm always rooting or you!

PSEUDO PLEASE STOP LEAVING US ALONE WE MISS YOU

Anyway, in reference to your latest blog, I rather greatly enjoyed Story 2(With Peregrine and them), and Story 4.

As for the characters being unnamed, maybe you should leave it that way, in this case, if possible; The namelessness of the characters added an interesting element I can't quite place to the story.

PERGRINE IS IN THE MOST RECENT STORY.

I say this as a plea to all the bata testers, please let this story happen this time. I would say that of the 4 I liked this one the most out of the "courage" stories.

I would also like to so that I liked the last one!

Although I feel like it was neutered in some way. Like it should have been darker and maybe not even had a happy ending. I don't really know . . . it just feels like he adjusted the story to suit the public and not himself.

--disclaimer---
Yes I do have a degree of dislike foe the Bata testers, due to that the reason for the delays in "creation" are because of the criticisms they gave. This may come though in my post. I also know that what they did was necessary to improve the system and, possibly, the stories.

If I were to rate the stories in order of how much I liked them, it would be 4, 2, 1, 3.

Are the beta testers really such jerks?

No, they are just doing their jobs I guess... I'm just a little sore about having to wait.

Same here, it's been so long since Pseudo released an RPG; or Heck, a game period.
