I think it's a great idea to reboot it. The series is really old (in internet time), and I get the feeling that the style is not "you" anymore; you're a different person now and have different, new, exciting ideas.

Go for it!

I know you probably don't read fighunter comments anymore but I'm gonna comment here anyway!!

I don't think that changing the gender of the main character will change anything. The gaming community in general is mostly male, and I assume the ratio is even more male-skewed for flash games. I think that getting more females is a matter of making the game popular, not changing genders.

Mardek (or, Rohoph now) is not the kind of game just anyone plays--it's an RPG, which eliminates virtually all casual gamers. I think casual gamers have roughly 50/50 demographics, so this leaves the mostly-male community of people who enjoy story-heavy games.

Personally, I'd assume that JRPG fans have a higher female-male ratio than the gaming community at large, but that's my opinion; I haven't actually done any research.

Point is, I don't think a gender swap will make much of a difference for females. But, it will drive away people who would stop playing the game just because of a gender swap, which is a petty reason and they might be people you don't want playing the game in the first place. So whatever.

I love that you sound so excited about it! Maybe someday there will be a whole host of games within the Alora Fane world!

I haven't played Mardek in such a long time that I've forgotten who the characters are! But I would appreciate a shorter, episodic re-release type of thing. Mardek 3 was so huge that I was intimidated (since I don't usually play long RPG games)!

I don't think people would be *angry* if a loveable character was killed off. They'd just be really sad! And sometimes being really sad makes the player/reader get more invested!

I think a lot of people have been wanting you to put something out on Steam for a while now! People do actually want to pay you, and Steam seems like the easiest way for that to happen.

Good luck with everything.

This type of thing has never been attempted before, at least to my knowledge. For it to be so developed already is amazing! I know you said it's pretty much ready for release, but you would like to add more features. I say go for it! This is an amazing idea, and it'll be a blast to play other people's quests/levels/whatever I should call them.

I would pay you if I could, honest--my parents still (!) keep a tight leash on my monetary funds.

We have very similar usernames. Just noticed that.

This has been your daily dose of serendipity.

I would really love to give your new idea a try! Historically, I've been terrible at making emotional connections, even though I value them very much. It takes months, if not years, for me to be able to open up a little. It would be great to give it a shot somewhere that's accepting.

Also, I hate confrontation and arguing/debating. What's the point? Nobody's going to convince anybody of anything, especially in an anonymous forum.

But the idea of a place based on emotional connections--people would get to know each other a lot better, and support each other. It does wonders to feel that someone understands and cares, at least enough to take one or two minutes to write a response.

Anyway, keep your spirits up, Pseudo! You are a talented artist, and I enjoy reading your updates.

Thanks! I've beaten it, too! It's such a heart-warming/wrenching game. Any game that makes me feel something is a game I'm going to love.
Have you played Earthbound? I'm actually working my way through it now!

For people that I've just met, I don't warm up too quickly. I know *their username and if they're nice or mean, and that's about it.

However, I've been part of another forum/blog-thing for five years and consider most of the people on there my friends. The feeling's probably mutual. I think that it takes more time to make friends on the internet than in real life, mostly because of the delay that posting messages creates as opposed to actually speaking. But it's definitely possible.

(Edit: I used "they're" in the wrong context for the first time since elementary school. I'm so ashamed. But it was 1am. So there's an excuse.)
