I’m doing stuff

August 25, 2016

It seems like the Tutorial was well received. I anticipated a lot of questions and stuff to improve on, but it has been very quiet all around.

So this could be either because nobody cares, or it’s written in an understandable way. I really hope it’s the latter. But to be honest, a Tutorial won’t get as much attention as a game, that’s to be expected. For some people it will make a big difference, for others it won’t, but that’s okay. I was already shown one finished test-project made with the help of the tutorial, so that makes me very happy. It looks very promising, too. If my Tutorial leads to one or two people making games that’s all I can really ask for.

Don’t hesitate to ask any questions here or directly per e-mail if you want to start something, I’ll gladly help in any way I can.

But enough of the Tutorial for now. You’re probably asking yourself what I’m going to do now. I have been in Japan again for the summer, so I couldn’t really work on anything yet, but now I’m starting to get back into it. First order of business is the Hardcore-Edition of Amazon Brawl. I’ve already talked about this a bit, but I’m not only planning of adding the Hardcore-Moves, but all around a lot more content to the game (Characters and stages). It’s going to be a huge update. I can’t really say how long it’ll take to complete, but when I can I’ll post more updates. I’ll also add a progress bar as well if I can make an estimate. The only thing I can tell you right now is that you shouldn’t expect it this year – that much I can already foresee.

Also thanks again for those of you who support me on Patreon. I haven’t posted anything exclusive over there for quite a while, so I really appreciate you sticking with me. To give it a bit more life and to show my gratitude, I’m planning on posting the spoilers for the new AB content exclusively over there.

To those of you who don’t want to use Patreon, don’t worry, you won’t miss anything important. Normal updates and of course the game once it’s finished will be posted here like always.

Tutorial v1.00

June 5, 2016

As promised, here it is. My Tutorial on how to make games using Fighter Maker 2nd and 3D Custom Girl. Downloads are as always, to your right.

When reading this tutorial, please keep the following in mind:

  • it’s my first Tutorial,
  • English isn’t my first language.

So for all intends and purposes, this is a beta release. If you find errors or stuff that’s poorly written, drop me a message. I will surely update this document in the future.

And if you feel like you’re looking at this picture while reading, please drop me message as well.

Sometimes it gets difficult to decide what’s considered difficult and what not, and I fear I might have lost some perspective over the years. So bear with me in that regard. I’ll be glad to give further explanations and advise.

Have fun and good luck on your project!

Done!

May 29, 2016

Why hello there! I don’t know if you remember me, I’m the silent guy around here.

If you have followed the comments I left under my last post, you know the last few months have been a bit busy for me, not limited to but also including some health issues and visits to the hospital. Everything is fine now and I’m as healthy as can be, thank you for worrying about me.

But the reason I was so silent the last few weeks wasn’t because of my health, it was more about the lack of time I had and news I could present. I spent pretty much every free minute I could spend just working on the Tutorial and couldn’t really post anything besides “I’m working on it, just be a bit more patient.”, which was hardly any news, so I decided not to.

I know this all took much longer than I anticipated. I was hoping to be finished within a month or two (February), but actually it took about half a year. But now it’s finished and I’m just happy. Writing a tutorial is really a very tedious process and I’m pretty sure I won’t ever do it again. But probably I won’t have to.

Anyway, I finished the Tutorial and my Demo-project earlier this morning. I’ll need some more time to proofread and bug-fix and add stuff here and there, but I think in a week or two I’ll have the download ready.

Thanks for waiting and not declaring me dead (well, aside from that one guy).

A short preview of the Tutorial

February 10, 2016

Remember when I said writing a Tutorial would be part of my break? Me neither.

Writing this thing is a really challenging task, definitely nothing I could just do half-heartedly. Especially after actually starting to make a game alongside it. But I’m making good progress, so the release isn’t far off. I know you guys are patiently waiting for something new from me, but hopefully the size and opportunity of this tutorial will make up for the time you have to wait.

My goal is to make a Tutorial suitable for everybody, no prior knowledge required. If one game sees the light because of this project, I’d be the happiest man alive.

But even if you don’t want to make your own game, I’m sure you can find some enjoyment in the game I’m making alongside it.

Stay tuned for the Adventures of Tutorial-chan, as she fights off her horny teacher, Enemy-Sensei!punch_preview

Yes, best plot ever.

Happy new year!

January 3, 2016

Hey there, long time no see. I hope you had nice 2015, here’s on to an even better 2016!

I was so busy stretching my legs over the past weeks, I kinda forgot to even keep this blog updated. So, as some of you realized, a few download-links were outdated.

Ryonani migrated to Undertow Club, which will serve as a new option for your every download need. Big thanks to Detritus for offering his servers! The links have been updated and should work now.

With that taken care of, I wanted to talk a bit about the stuff I’ve been doing. For the most part, I’ve been very diligent working on my tutorial. I’ve written well over 100,000 words now, but there’s still a good chunk left.

My initial idea was to write down everything I know and learned about Fighter Maker and 3D Custom Girl, sort of like an encyclopedia for easy consulting, followed by a step-by-step tutorial on how to use these building blocks to make a game – with some examples and a small finished game.

As I was reading the tutorial myself for testing, I soon realized this was a pretty shitty idea. While this encyclopdia was great for looking stuff up if you were lost in your own project, it didn’t have a continuous thread to actually teach stuff. If you are trying to learn a new engine, drowning yourself in details and going through your options left to right is just hindering.

To make an efficient tutorial it’s a better idea to start making something and then explain the details in the step they’re necessary in. That means the whole step-by-step part of the tutorial I planned will have to be much longer and detailed than I initially thought. But otherwise it wouldn’t really teach stuff, and that’s what this is about, after all.

So, how far am I and when is the release? I have finished the encyclopedia, so to speak. Everything I know about Fighter Maker 2nd is written down there. I will release this as a separate document together with the tutorial, so you can use it to easier look stuff up.

For the step-by-step tutorial I’m finished with all the basic stuff, like making poses, importing images, how a skill works, making stages etc. At the moment I’m finishing up with movement. What’s left after that are the attacks, the Sex-moves and finally the Demos. Somewhere in between I’ll also have to talk about Variables and Objects.

The small Demo-Project will have one fight with two characters and something like 2 or 3 Sex Animations.

I’m finished with the big part of the tutorial, but it’ll still take some time. Certainly a few weeks, but I’ll keep you updated!

So, this is the plan…

October 28, 2015

A few of you were already wondering where I was hiding, so I guess I should put something out there before people think I’m dead. First things first: my break isn’t over yet and I plan to take it slowly for the rest of the year. I’ve found some time to spend on a few of my neglected hobbies and enjoy it very much, so that’s something I want to continue for a while.

That being said, I’ve also spend the last few weeks pondering what I should do next in regards to game-making. Sure, the basic ideas stand, but there are lot more things to consider I haven’t really talked about yet. But at the moment I think I have a concept I’m very happy with, so that’s what I’ll go with.

The first thing I’ll do is finish the tutorial I started a few months ago and promised a lot of you guys. It has been a long time since it got on my to-do list and it’s high time I get done with it. In fact, I’ve already written some more pages for it. I’m not sure exactly when I’ll release it, but don’t worry, it’s not too far off. In the moment I’m aiming for late December or January. It depends on how big the “small” project will be I thought of releasing alongside it (for demonstration purposes). Writing this tutorial is a very comfortable way to spend a few evenings, so I consider it part of my break.

Next up, after I’ve finished my tutorial, will be the update to Amazon Brawl. Now, for this there are a few more things I need to talk about.

Making a game is always a learning experience for me. Not always in regards to gameplay-mechanics, but pretty much everytime in regards to making animations. Over the months it took me to make one game I always had the feeling I’m improving on the quality of them and by the time I’m done with the game – looking back – I saw a lot of room for improvement (especially on the first animations I worked on). This is the reason I was always reluctant to add new content to my finished games; I’d rather spend the time to work on a new, improved one, even if the content and premise was similar. This seemed to me like the better way to spend my time.

With Amazon Brawl… I don’t really have that. Sure, there are a few things here and there I’m not really satisfied with, but seeing the animations as a whole – making them now, I don’t think I’d be able to improve on them significantly. I’d probably make them the same way. In other words: as far as fighting games with an emphasis on futanari are concerned, I don’t think I have a need to make another one. Not any time soon, not in the coming years. I am satisfied with Amazon Brawl to such a degree I’m much more willing to use it as a base game to add content to – and not just move on to my next game. So, with that in mind, it may very well happen that I don’t only add hardcore-moves in the next update for Amazon Brawl, but other content (like stages or characters).

Now, a lot of you remember I said Amazon Brawl was very big and the more content I add to it the higher my workload will be. This is true and won’t change. Looking at the alternative however, I don’t think making a new game would be the best course of action if I have another inspiration for futanari content. Seems more reasonable to just add it to Amazon Brawl – not to mention I could add content to existing characters as well, making the whole game a new experience.

But this is something I’ll still need some time to think about.

Next up is Princess of the Ring 2. As I am announcing a bigger update for Amazon Brawl I don’t think it’d be fair to leave this one out. You probably had some worries reading the previous paragraph; if I make Amazon Brawl bigger, won’t that push back PotR 2 even further? No, actually not. If I am making AB bigger, I need to re-evaluate my time-schedule as well. “Finishing” Amazon Brawl isn’t my first priority anymore, I want to instead add more content to make it a new experience, even if that takes a big longer to finish. As such, I’ll probaby start with PotR 2 around the same time as the update for AB, working on both projects at the same time or alternating between them. Last year I worked on Amazon Kara and Amazon Brawl at the same time for a few months and had a good time with it, so I hope I can do the same here. And considering PotR and AB are so different, I think it’ll be a good change of pace for both projects.

I’ve also spent some time thinking about the content of PotR 2. I had different ideas for settings, moves, number of characters and so on – but at the moment I think working on the same premise as the first one would be the best way to go. Instead of making a lot of characters like Amazon Brawl, I think this time around I’d rather go for a smaller number of characters, but giving each one more moves and content. Maybe instead of a fast action game, more like a simulation, and each girl has more moves depending on her position… lots of possibilities. But I’ll have to think more about that later.

And jeez, this post is getting longer by the minute. One short question I want to leave you with: do you think undressing should be an integral part of PotR 2, or are you comfortable with nude fighters? I’ll be completely honest: that’s a fuckload of work and I am not sure I want to include it, but if everyone agrees it should be part of the fight, I’m willing to take one for the team. Let me know.

For now I’m going back to my break. See you sometime in the coming months.
