Coolguy AMD.

Alright, time for some updates.

Basically, my previous video card failed on me. Since then, I've been able to use most of, but not all of my software, and some of it has had some weird issues (For example, GM had a bunch of error messages I've never seen before, so I can only assume it was something about the integrated graphics). As a result, I've mostly been working on music, in the meantime

That said, after going back and fourth with AMD customer service for about a week and a half, they eventually agreed to send me a refurbished replacement card (I had a 7970, and they sent me a 7990, which is about $500 more than what I had). It arrived today, and I've just finished setting it up. At least so far, I haven't run into any problems, so hopefully that whole set of problems is over and done with.

MangaGamer / Kurovadis

Manga Gamer Approached me about selling my games with their service. However, I'm feeling pretty ashamed of how bad the CGs were, particularly in regards to anatomy.

So, I'm considering going back and fixing some of the more obvious mistakes in the CGs before selling it with MangaGamer. I thought about fixing some other stuff, and adding some of the things people have been asking for, but I probably shouldn't be doing stuff like that, at the moment, so I'll resist the urge for now.

If I do the Cgs, though, maybe I'll stream the process, for the heck of it.

Patreon Stuff

First off, the winner of the Vote was Hatsune Miku.

















Also, I should have done this a while ago; but I'm going to do the draw for the animations and image after I'm done with this post. The first person who won the draw never got back to me, so I'll be doing two of them, as well as an image one.

Other than that, there's still a bunch of stuff I've gotta do, and should have had done by now. However, I'll get through it eventually.

Noaika

To give some insight into what still needs to be done, the bulk of the remaining work pretty much comes down to tilesets, music, sound, a small category of H-animations, the main bosses (not the ones that roam around), any fixes I'll end up needing to do at the end, and then stuff like H options, menus, and all the other stuff you need to do to wrap things up. Oh, and CGs, though that's only if I decide to have them at all.

Honestly, the most time consuming part of it will probably be the music. People always talk about how long it takes to make something, but the real problem is how long it takes to make the 3-5 things that  come before the thing that works. It's pretty rare for me to just work on a song from beginning to end, without running into roadblocks.

  8. Heh my PSU blew up just 2 weeks ago. Luckily the damage is just PSU. Couldn't wait for warranty because Audacia need getting done! Went got a new PSU. Good to know you got through without too much hassle.

  10. Mangagamer? That's awesome. They're a great company and I've always had a good experience as a customer, so I can hope they're the same on the developer side.

  11. Glad Chie didn't win, not that she's not my favorite girl in there, but I just like her character too much to see some of those suggestions happen to her :D

    ReplyDelete
  12. I'd say if it ain't broke don't fix it, old stuff will always look bad compared to what it would be like with more experience, but it's your call. I'd love to see some improved CG of the same scenes, maybe looking more dynamic...

    ReplyDelete
  13. So, do you have any Idea when you will release the new Noaika demo?

    ReplyDelete
  14. Your CG was wasn't ever your strongest point, but I always appreciated it's inclusion in your games. Anthophobia is going through such a makeover, although a new artist was introduced and he/she is fuckin' amazing.

    Hatsune Miku... -sigh-

    The people have spoken...

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Someone suggested doing pixel art CGs for it, so I may do that. Dunno yet.

      And yeah, better CGs in anthophobia was a good decision, the originals weren't really on the same level as some of the sprites.

      Delete
    2. I prefer pixel art to traditional CGs in games, it feels more video gamey.

      On an unrelated note, is there any chance you can show us a screenshot of Noaika? Pretty please? I'd really like to see a full pic of the new resolution.

      Delete
    3. I second this. It's taking some time to make, a screenshot, or possibly, gif would be nice.

      Delete
  15. I don't recommend fixing previous games. If you REALLY, really want to, because of the re-release, go ahead, but only the CGs, nothing more. Don't start going to all your older games and fixing everything. Just accept that their current state is how they are. It's better to create new things, instead of constantly patching the old ones.

    As for Noaika, you mentioned in a comment that somebody else suggested pixel art CGs. That sounds great and unique, I would love to see that.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The main things that I would fix are;
      1. The gears, which can soft-lock the game.
      2. The CGs.

      Other than that, I'd probably just be adding an option in the menu that sends you to a room where you can choose to fight any enemy or boss you've encountered.

      I'd also think about adding an enemy or two, but that's totally optional.

      Delete
    2. I know exactly what you're talking about with the gears. I've done some speedrunning of Kurovadis, and the gears terrify me every time.

  16. I see some hidden Patron updates... Once the draw results are decided, will you post what the winners decided on even for non-patrons? I'm curious as a monkey ^__^

  18. New demo soon? :3

    Replies
    1. Wouldn't the demo come out when the game is done? Or does he plan to release a newer one before it's completion? Sorry, I feel like this would have been answered before, but I can't seem to find a post where it's talked about.

      Delete
    2. He mentioned making a second demo before the release of the finished game

  19. For those of us who preordered it, does anything change for us? Will we just get the game or do we need to get an account for wherever you decide to sell it? Like I dont want to get involved with kimochi or something like that :|

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Ummm.... Kimochi went out of business. So, likely Kyrieru will be using the same avenues of distribution that he has been using-- direct and DLsite (x2 price)

      Delete
    2. Kimochi didn't replace anything anyway. I'll always sell my games on my own site.

      Basically, the code people got for Noaika will just work with the game. The game will be downloaded on this site, the same as Noaika or Kurovadis.

      Delete
    3. Okay good :)

      I forgot I even got a code. Luckily the download link still works but I had already downloaded it back when I ordered.

    In regards to the music, you could always do like Toby Fox did with Undertale, and have a very small amount of main songs, and have a larger subset of smaller songs that use almost the same song but altered a bit to sound completely different.

    I've even seen a trick of tempo used for an area's boss and the area's theme. The boss uses a fast paced and exciting theme, and the area just uses a slowed down version. Many people don't even realize it's just the same song.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Well, the problem isn't really making music in and of itself, since I can easily make something mediocre but functional, the issue is making music that I think is good. Unlike Kurovadis and Eroico, I want to make sure that Noaika has a full soundtrack, rather than the bare-minimum.

      Delete
    2. Might be worth taking a look at, anyway. Sharing some sounds/patterns between songs makes things feel a bit more fluid.

      Not knocking the game, just an example: Kurovadis's music was actually good, the style just took a few major jumps between songs, so it didn't sound as good as it could have. The music track for each area was fitting, but they didn't fit eachother.

      Delete
    3. I get what Passerby means. For example You Best Friend is a small chiptune you hear almost immediately after the game starts and think nothing of it, and later it gets remixed into the fucking epic final boss music(well, one of them) that is Your Best Nightmare/Finale... I also like repeating leitmotifs.

      Much respect that you can make your own music btw. I would just use some dumb stock tunes because I have no composing talent or at least now idea how to compose something.

      Delete
    4. Not Passerby, Mamono, sorry.

      Delete
    5. I have no problem with Motifs, I just prefer to have more unique melodies, personally.

  22. Hey Mr.kyrieru two quick questions. First question what do you think of this software since your a pixel artist. http://store.steampowered.com/app/431730/?snr=1_7_7_230_150_1 Second question if you do go back to fixing Kurovadis. Is there chance they be a mobile port? I know you said last time you saw no point. But check this website out https://mikandi.com/ It basically the google app store but with porn. I believe you can get alot of customers there.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I use aseprite for the larger scale H animations I do. for my uses, it's better than the other programs on the market.

      As for a mobile port, probably not. Not now, anyway.

      Delete
    2. I see thanks. I been trying to get into drawing and I was thinking pixel might be easy to learn the regular drawing. Mr.Kyrieru you might want to take a look at Udemy(https://www.udemy.com/courses/?utm_source=email-Pro&utm_campaign=_._cn_NewsletterTNT_._us_All2plus_._tn__._tv__._tl_T1_._tg_n_._ci__._in__._la__._rn_NewsletterTNT_non-adhoc_All2plus__T1___n__&utm_medium=NewsletterTNT_non-adhoc_All2plus__T1___n__&utm_content=udemy.3400385&utm_term=NewsletterTNT_All2plus&data_h=). If there anything that you want to learn they probably have it. Plus there a sale going on.

      Delete
    3. I wouldn't really suggest courses for artwork, unless someone is going 1 on 1 with you to help you. Most information is available online for free, and it mostly comes down to practice and the desire to learn anyhow.

      Delete
    4. Shit I was afraid of that. I have no natural talent for drawing. But i know it possible
      for people without natural talent can manage to draw. I'm not sure I can find someone for one on one. I guess I have to stick to learning 3d modeling for now. Thank you for the Advises.

      Delete
    5. To clarify, I don't think you need to have anyone teach you. Drawing every day for even a year can go a long way.

      Look around at some art forums, and post there with your progress, and you can still get feedback specific to your work.

      Delete
    6. Do you recommend drawing aids(http://www.amazon.com/Pop-Up-The-Sketch-Master-Template/dp/B0174AZNL4/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1458596703&sr=8-6&keywords=Drawing+aid)?
      An one last question Is it easier to draw on paper,or digital like using Wacom tablet?

    7. If you're doing any digital work at all, a tablet is the way to go.

    1. also make sure there's a way to get the uncensored version of Noaika for all of us that live in the free world

      Delete
    2. The version on my site is always supposed to be uncensored, but at one point when I fixed a bug in Kurovadis, I used the "last version", which was the version where I censored it for DLsite. That's the only reason it was censored.

      If Eroico was too, then I can't remember why. There's no reason that they would have to be censored.

      Delete
    3. oh yeah! there's a version that u will have on your site that won't be censored, of course durr! I'm glad thanks

      Delete
  24. On a more positive note, can we get a list of Noaika content that you've got 100% finished, so far? What's the status on the wandering bosses and character "customization"?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Because Kyrieru has finished jack-shit on Noaika, we regret to inform you that he will be ignoring your question, and will be answering people below you instead. We apologize for the inconvenience, and wish you a pleasant evening. Thank you.

      Delete
    2. I listed what still needs to be done in this post, which is essentially answering the same question. Unless you expect me to list every single asset in the game.

      As for customization, the only reason why I didn't answer him is because I got a call while writing a response and totally forgot to come back to it. But hey, fuck me right? Jesus.

      To answer the question about customization, I'll be doing that at the end. It basically just involves drawing certain details over the animations, but I want to make sure everything is final before I do it.

  25. if you update Kurovadis is the new version going to be available here for us who already bought it?

  28. You wouldn't happen to know the sprite artist of Momodora would you? Your styles are remarkably similar. It was also mentioned that the team working on the Momodora series has a Canadian with them. Unless there is some sprite art class that you can take in Canada or something.

  29. Well, I wouldn't say that our styles are all that similar. I don't know any of them, either.

    It looks good though.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Is the music of the game going to be more of the music in the demo (Atmospheric and creepy), or are you planning on adding more up-beat music (al la Eroico). I know the tone's a bit different, but it's hard to get off to creepy piano.

    I feel that ever since the large change to the game following the open preorder you allowed, my expectations for this game rose a lot. Though at the same time, while I'm expecting a lot, I don't know what to actually expect.

    Is that strange?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I think not knowing what to expect is pretty natural given that I haven't shown any of the game's content yet. All I've done is give a vague description of some of the game's mechanics, some of which have changed since then anyway.

      All anybody knows is what the player sprite looks like, and what one of the bosses looks like.

      Delete
    2. We know what one of the bosses looks like? That's news to me. Though I'd rather not see it until I encounter it in-game.

      And I think not knowing what to expect only increases my hype.

      Delete
    3. Basically, I did the initial idle of a roaming bosses during a stream.

      Delete
    4. Is it that weird brown hanging... thing with tentacles you posted a picture of a while back? I think it was part of the same post where you described the mechanic of roaming bosses, and how they may be concealed by darkness and only detected through sound.

    8. @gordon: Well, an artist I know latched onto the design pretty early, and has drawn her far more than I have, at this point. Kuro, too, has been drawn in fanart more than I've drawn her.

      @Articstic Anon: Nah, they won't have moods, really. It's more of a binary "I see you and I'm going to try and fuck you"/ "I don't know you exist" sort of thing.

      Also, putting her hand over her mouth makes that picture lol.

      Delete
    9. I'd be curious how the artistic Anon come to the conclusion there is going to be a feature he himself just came with :D Or is he trying to influence @Kyrieru by using hypnotizing artwork? :D

      Delete
    10. Will hiding from such enemies be based solely on line of sight, or is the player going to have to stay quiet as well? Also can Noa use darkness to conceal herself, or will the boss detect her just based on proximity so long as no solid object is blocking line of sight?

  34. Not sure if you can or will answer this, but percentage wise how far along do you feel Noaika is? Just looking for a pinhole of light in the darkness here.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Can't really say what the percent is. While certain things make up a percentage of the content in the game, they can take a disproportionately long time to make. So even if I only had music left and said "only 5% left to go!", it could end up taking a long time to finish.

      Delete
  35. Hey Kyrieru can I ask you a question. Did you ever thought about doing comics,doujins,or manga?
    I mean after Noaika is done. It seems drawing is a lot faster then game development. An if you ever need more cash. The comic route seem like good thing. I don't know so what do think?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I often consider doing comics for practice or for fun, but I'd never really do it expecting to make money. For one thing, my artwork isn't good enough to sell, at the moment, but it also wouldn't make nearly as much money as games or animation.

    3. I'm not in artist. So this may sound stupid. So here goes. Couldn't you use the pixels that you draw in your games and the animations that you made in put it into a comicbook art style? I mean let me ask you this questions Do you watch Southpark(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=un7QiXsnF_Y). What about Adventure times?(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iJzaNmF8LT0). What do you think of these shows the art style on both are not great but the story and humor on them so good that people look past the artstyle. Mr.Kyrieru if you have time you should make a one page comic in put it up here. Who knows it might be better then you think.

      Delete
    4. >my artwork isn't good enough to sell
      Please, stop. You are very talented and much more crude artwork has gotten people to become successful comic artists. Look into some webcomic publishing companies - 2 or 3 strips per week could become a nice little side project that would only benefit you.

      Delete
    5. Just because other people make money from poor work, that doesn't mean that I should too. Effort does not equal quality, or make you deserving of profit as far as I'm concerned. I think that there's a certain level of quality that should be achieved before somebody should try and sell their work. (Kurovadis's CGs are not acceptable, for example. They were only ok because there was a game around them, and even then I'm ashamed to be selling something with them)

      Like I said though, I've wanted to do comics before, if only for fun, and for the practice. That doesn't mean I couldn't profit from it later, if I was actually good enough. However, it would be somewhat pointless to do it "for" profit, because there are other things that I'm not only better at, but in a much better position to profit from. I'd always stick to comics for fun, even if I got better.

      The other thing, is that the hentai comic market isn't exactly a niche that needs to be filled, and certainly not by me. There are a lot of amazing artists, and even less skilled artists that could outdo me any day of the week. Even if I improved a lot, never reaching the level of the amazing artists, I wouldn't really be doing anything that isn't done better by other people. On the other hand, I can do pixel art, make music, and program, and so there are things I can do that those amazing artists would never be able to do alone, and it's a niche that isn't being filled, at the moment. There's just more for me to accomplish personally through other mediums.

      Delete
    6. 1 Wow dude you truly care about the quality work you put out there. I respect your dedication. I still thing your being hard on yourself. I forgot you can do music. Will Noaika soundtrack be available for purchase outside the game? Ether way I wish I had half your skills.

      Delete
    7. Not for purchase, but they will be available in the soundtracks section for free, just like the previous games.

    9. Still though, that pixel-comic doesn't seem like a bad idea. The pixel art you do is great. Dunno if you've noticed, but it's been spreading around. If you felt like doing a comic sometime, that style would be the way to go.

    Since people are so very interested in the next game's release date, I have a pun for you all that reveals the answer.

    Do you know when the game will release?

    "I have Noaika!"

    3. Me too, i even asked him on Ulmf.
      That time Ky said that he will make it available when possible, in a section with demos and content of unreleased or retired games.

      I don't know if that's still what he intends to do.

  44. Hope things are going okay, Ky.
    Hyper Light Drifter is a good game. Have any thoughts on it?
    It made me think of the way your games are laid out for some reason.

  45. How is going Kyrieru?
    Do you know this guy by any chance? His game reminded me a lot Eroico.

  47. Instead of 'Weekly Animations' the button should be changed to 'Animations that I sometimes get around to doing once in a great while and when the stars align."
    On a side note...I really wish he'd just make a post that says hi and draw a quick picture or something. I find his little mini comic strips hilarious.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Actually, the button should be changed to: "Something I do on the side that you get for free but still find a way to complain about it."

    Though to be fair, comments like his and mine are to be expected when there's no one else talking about anything else here, for lack of topics to talk about.

    I hope Noaika has large dicks and belly inflation.

  50. Hey Ky, how do you manage your time/finances around work and your hobbies? I imagine you'd never abandon your full time (I hope) job but if you had a much larger cash flow to maybe plan your finances with from patreon, would you consider your hobbies as a job if it put bread on the table and provided enough financial stability?

    (I know of a few people who have personally tried that venture of combining their hobbies and their jobs into one and the results were mixed so I'm curious if you've given it any thought)

  54. He's not dead, he's just napping. For over two weeks.

    Clearly, The Gungeon came out and he's been devoting all his time to that.

  55. Genuinely trying to help here.
    If you can't meet your obligations, you're making the wrong ones. Once they fester like this, it's hard to come back, because you're unable to deliver the things you've promised.

    You really should pull back on your plans, and overstate your expected time for completing things. Better to under-promise and over-deliver, than over-promise and under-deliver; and it's a lot cooler to give people extra things when you have extra time than it is to have to hide everything out of disappointment because it hasn't yet reached the level of perfection and refinement you promised/seek.

    Your work is better than anything most people can manage. Beyond that, you're better than a lot of people developing games and art in similar styles.
    It's fine to want to constantly improve, but that won't happen if you don't get better at pacing yourself first.

    If you let it all come out in a way that fits you naturally, you'll do just fine.
    If you force it, the current situation will keep happening.


    Good luck in the future.

  59. Hey Ky, I noticed Noaika had gamepad support so I figured I'd test it out, it all works pretty nice on the joystick. but the D-Pad exhibits some weird behavior, particularly;

    Holding Jump while in the air doesn't allow you to air dash, it seems to begin the animation and then immediately cancel it, the air dash works when I let go of the Jump Button before dashing, but not if you continue to hold it.

    D-pad Movement cancels punching attacks, pretty straight forward, could be a hidden blessing, however, as pressing the D-pad down while holding the punch/grenade button allows you to attack as quickly as possible, and its easier to do in my opinion than spamming the punch button itself.

    and finally, holding the jump when pressing the D-pad left or right once makes the character jump, if you hold the button to continue moving in the same direction, it doesn't jump repeatedly, only on the first press, so things like switching directions for example.

    I used an Xbox One controller.

    3. Yeah. That'd be making good time too. You do realize he started just two years ago right? One person making a game this size takes a long time. Took Thomas Happ five years to make Axiom Verge, and it was barely the length of Super Metroid.

      According to Ky, the game is at around 80% complete. That's not even standard for a full time team, much less a lone part time dev. His progress is fantastic.

      Delete
    4. It wouldn't be so bad if Kyrieru would show some updates of at least some progress to his followers/fans. Going silent for months at a time is kind of a dick move if you ask me.

      Delete
    5. I can't argue with that, but keep in mind that your month long wait for an update seems a lot longer to you than his month of development seems to him. And maybe he hasn't made any progress that would be worth talking about other than "I'm working on it."

      Chances are whatever he could say right now either isn't worth saying or would be more disappointing than saying nothing, otherwise he would've said something.

      Delete
    6. Kyrieru is a perfectionist and he doesn't want to show things that are unfinished until he feels its just right. Which also is why he chooses to work alone and prefers not to set deadlines. But when he does deliver, it's pure gold as always.

  62. Don't worry about us Ky. Keep up the good work. By the time you're done your fanbase may have already torn itself to shreds waiting, but it's not like we weren't warned. I'll be back in about 5 months because I found an industrial strength freezer. Hope you release a new demo by then!

  63. Noaika's been in development for so long now that I don't even care that it looks like it's going to take multiple years to release. I'll just patiently wait with my unlock code and pray I don't lose it in the meantime, because anything one can say about it taking too long has been said at least ten other times by someone in the past two years. It's like beating a dead horse's decomposed corpse at this point.

  66. Good topic, while I for the moment have no skills to even begin, if I were to make an H-game, I would probably make a distraction-based stealth platformer similar to mark of the ninja. I believe it would work well as an H game because he H-content would be easy to weave into gameplay without being awkward (needing to die before seeing scenes in the case of GoR), you catch someone from stealth? Enemy rape, get caught by enemy, player rape, then alarm sounds or something.

I'm no good at programming but im kinda alright at sprites and have a had a bit of help from kyrieru, and ive been working on my own project http://imgur.com/a/ridfn ,in my case for h, id like to get away from random knockdowns and have a system where as you brush past enemies, a meter goes up, when full, you will be knocked down, but youd be able to lower the meter with enemies drops, so youd be in control, of course there would always be the choice to just press a button to get h'd
