  1. I can't believe you managed to make such an amazing game. The controls are fluid, the game is fun to mess with(the roll jump roll jump reminds me of Ninja Gaiden, real fun). The sprites are also very well done and the cg and music are also great.

    Oh the link to the dlsite doesn't work.

    1. Well, I expected about 500 from DLsite, and perhaps 200 from my blog. But the sales have far surpassed that. At the very least, I didn't think I'd get this many sales this fast.

  3. 861 sales now, 105 (cute Japanese?) smiley faces, and a review. If you do get $5 for each of those, that's $4305! Did things really turn out that well for the first day that it has been on sale there?

  6. Congratulations on finishing your game and breaching your goal ^^
    I finally bought Kurovadis, but I'm not sure how much time I'll have to play it.
    Since I should work on my own project, rather than playing other H-games in my free time.
    But I guess I'll play it once in a while.
    (what I've seen from it so far was great)

    And yeah, to be honest, I think you can be really proud of yourself.
    You kinda paved the way for hentai game developing in the west.
    Or at least I admit, that seeing you being succesfull, gave us (Projekt Wolfenstahl) the motivation to do a game ourselves.
    So keep up the good work!

  7. So the DL figures on DL site are just for those who bought he game, not including those who just downloaded the demo? If so, amazing work and well deserved. Even though Kurovadis is and extremely smooth and well done action-platformer, I would have thought it would have been until your second game and require more time, before word of mouth made you break 1,000 sales.

  8. Is there a big difference between version 5 and 6 or is it just an update with bug fixes? Are the save files transferable between the two?

    ReplyDelete
  9. The big upside to this, is you know if he keeps an equal skill or more (which obviously I think its only going to improve) his next sell will go even quicker. Congratulations, almost makes me want to get off my lazy tail and try my hand....but meh.

  12. Hello, I am a Japanese fan of your game.
    Since he is poor at English, I am using the translation site.
    Please do not care, even if language is somewhat amusing.
    kurovadis had improved very much as a game and was interesting.
    And it did not come out so much and was very satisfactory also in respect of being sexual.
    In order to aid your next work, I purchased the game from DLsite.
    What I regarded as good this time especially is the enemy who added people with the cat.
    Although I only mainly like yuri.
    Then, I would like you to put women's scene also into a next project by all means as a trifling hope from me.
    Next project pleasure is used.
    see you!

  13. Does the full version have more enemies/H-animations than the earlier demos of the game? The raping enemies I remember are the big penis tentacle monster, the soldier, the slimes, the zombies, and the manti. Are there any others?

  15. Hello there, same here as japanese DLsite user.
    I couldn't notice that the game made by a foreigner.(may I ask where you from?)
    although I wondered a little why the instruction was all written in English.

    Somehow I found here and want to tell you that I enjoyed demo and will buy full game asap.
    I have following Nightmare Sphere for few years, its a really good game in both ACT and Hentai ways.

  19. I had Kuro v1. and I downloaded the Demo V6 and placed the unlock in there. I Added my save file from the original V1 into V6 but I would hear a dying voice and it kicks me out of the game upon pressing continue.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I think I know where's the issue, but just in case, here's general last-boss-battle guide, the way it made me win the game: After entering the last chamber, aside from avoiding the projectiles, concentrate your attack on the tentacle in front of the big meaty pile with the head which is the boss proper. After the tentacle is destroyed, you can attack the boss for a bit. At some point though he/it'll most probably will get impervious to your attack and will start dropping firey pillars from the ceiling. When he's about to, get to the left of the screen, watch out so the pillars won't drop on you and get thanks to them onto the boss. Then, you just keep smashing at him/it with melee+down till he's done for.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Hey, if you're going to continue to sell games on a Japanese DL site, maybe you should try and use a symbol system for menus and HUDs? That way there isn't a language barrier for anyone playing the game.

    Example for Kurovadis on the status screen, instead of ATK, there is a red impact symbol, or a picture of the PC attacking.

  31. So I came across this on DLSite English, bought it immediately after trying it, then stumble across your blog and find it's both cheaper and without mosaics. D'oh!

    Meh, it's worth it :p

    ReplyDelete
  32. Alright, as one of those guys who finished the game, I'd like to share a few thoughts.

    [cut - here would be a bigass review which I don't think you really need, Kyrieru or should have waste your time on, so I'll skip only to those bits which I would like to underline importance of and which would use improvement]

    I am quite thankful for a ncie balance aspect in regards to the level design. By the end, it gets hard enough for one to not stroll through the level, at the same time the game's beatable. Keep up such level of difficulty and I think everyone will be glad. In that regard, it's also great that if players finds themselves to be overpowered by the enemies, they can grind a lil bit to even their chances.

    Before someone recommends you to add such, I'm also thankful there are no strange minigames, speedrun unlocks etc. It irks the collector in me when I have to choose between boring, irritating grinding and replaying to get all the goodies etc and just enjoying the game.

    Sometimes, when wanting to see H scene with some weaker enemy, it took considerable amounts of time and effort to decrease the health in earlier levels to let that enemy deal finishing blow or have a path toward the character (out od curiosity - did you ever, even privately thought of a name and some background fluf for her and her whole adventure?) so I can check whether there's special HCG. Consider including some 'submit' option in the next game?

    I'm relieved to read that you plan CG gallery for the next game. Would it be possible to add animation gallery thing as well? Especially since you plan to include better sprites - hentai animations may be even more appealing and sought than regular CG.

    Speaking of CG. You clearly represent really admirable level of skill but, for the sake of making things even better, could you please consider spending some time on polishing the drawings of character's torso and belly button? In some pics it looks more like the torso is just smooth tube(the lowest ribs proceeding to stomach without any noticeable change in shape of said torso) and the belly button is just a huge cut going nearly through the nearly whole torso.

    I don't think I will be alone in my opinion here but I wouldn't be surprised if the game's would cost a lil bit more if that would be the necessary price for the same amount of the enemies we have now but with longer, better H animations and with a HCG for every enemy who was the last 'claiming' the defeated character (maybe even a couple of both HCG and animations per enemy, but that's of course just ideal-tier dream). Just in case though, it would be nice to be able to access the gallery for all CG/animations related to the enemy, even if not all would be performed, to avoid repeated losing just to make sure one can see everything.

    It's great you cater to different tastes and fetishes of the players when making your CG. We have tentacles, humanoids, insects, mutants, animals, even catgirls (I think those are girls). While not every thing will be liked by everyone, at least there's a chance everyone will find something for themselves. Still, feel free to add more things. For example I kinda lacked some CG mind-broken heroine who would actually enjoy what happens to her (probably would be as fitting for succubus boss as the current one).

    Alright, I should end here. This comment is already far longer than I presumed it'll be (sorry if it was a waste of your time after all, Kyrieru). One last question, then, again, for the sake of curiosity:
    Who made the voices for the character and if they were original and made for this game - what was the voice actress thinking? I'm just curious what was running through her head when she was making those :P

    I'm ending here. Hope to see your next productions, may they grow bigger, better and be more profitable till you'll be making H games of people's dreams.

    If I ever was to make a game for selling I would want to make my own original art and music as well(though my current art is not exactly at your level).

  37. I just bought your game a few hours ago and think it is pretty good. However, I find it far to difficult, even on very easy and that comes from a guy who played through all the Turrican games. The vore monsters are especially annoying. I can avoid getting eaten by one, but when there are two of them I just can't get by them.

    It wouldn't be so much of a problem, if there would be more safe points.

    Still, a very good game and I love the pixel art. My wishes for your next game would be reconfigurable joypad controls, as the default is a bit awkward for my pad.

    PS: Special thanks that you had the good sense not to use z-key on the keyboard controls, which usually creates a lot of problems for us German players as y and z are swapped on German keyboards.

    Replies
    1. for many monsters and obstacles there's actually the trick to avoiding them. for example, 'technologic' part of the map (with tentacle doctor laboratory thing) has a lil part where there are two vore monsters over the pit. The trick to get over them unharmed is to jump onto one and then perform a jump onto the other, from which you jump quickly to the other edge of the pit. There you go. I am mostly an RPG player, from time to time playing some shooter or other action game yet I was able to beat Kurovadis in relatively good time, I'd say and on normal difficulty. Even if some moments did seem irritating at some times (mostly just those 'succesfully get through some hard jumping puzzle to meet the monster at the end which will shoot you and you will fall back to the square one).

      Delete
    2. There's actually an even simpler trick to those and many other monsters in the game: Use a roll manuever to bypass them. Even if they manage to get their attack in time you will just pass harmlessly through them. Just watch the timing.

    1. It's in 'technological' part of the map. If I recall correctly, you acquire it after jumping from the two turrets mounted one on another onto the ledge and from it higher up. You can destroy one of those turrets if you want, you should be able to reach it anyway.

I could play it, fine. But whenever I try to open the stat distribution screen, it freezes. 70% of the time, when I collect the roll power up, it freezes (And makes a dreadful noise). I do want to pay for the full game, but there's no point unless I can actually play the game. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
