Getting things together





Just a quick update,
I have some sleep issues, but most of my earlier health problems are manageable or gone now. (Hopefully it stays that way). Some new problems here and there, but I think I worry too much these days since I spent the last like 6 years wondering if I would ever even have a normal life again.

I haven't really been working on anything for a while. I've mostly been focusing on adjusting my diet, exercising, cleaning my house, and in general just getting a lot of things under control. Things got way out of hand over the years due to my health problems, so I'm making an effort to try and make my living conditions better in general.

I'm not sure when I'll be getting back to working on things. Probably a couple weeks at least. Once I do may actually start with some streams working on Lufuclad, since I've had the urge to work on it a bit lately. Kurovadis is still a bit of a question mark in my head. I'm still not sure how much I want to fix it up. Noaika still seems so far of given how much I still need to do in it. Obviously it's a mess having so many projects in the way that I think I "need" to do (which I don't), like Kurovadis. These days I don't have too many money issues, since Eroico has stayed very consistent, though it's hard to kick the feeling that I need to publish it in some form that is equal to Eroico at least.

Anyhow, that's all for now.

  1. I can't wait for the streams, watching other artists and devs work is always super interesting!

    Also the difference in those screenshots is like day and night, I wasn't expecting such a big difference. Now it's more of a definitive edition than just "reworking it a little".

  2. Health first, always. It's amazing how much diet alone can improve things, we don't realize how many of the things we eat are actually poison. Often it's things we wouldn't suspect, like wheat or spinach.

    Financially speaking, releasing an improved Kurovadis on Steam would probably be a decent move since the game is actually done and any improvement is just polish. Releasing it with minor work would yield a lot of money for little effort, and releasing it with a lot of polish would increase sales and inspire confidence in future games, so there's no wrong answer here.

    Given how much work you've put into Noaika, though, it's going to have to be released eventually. It would be such a waste to let it rot away.

  3. WOW...just WOW...i did expect much changes for the visuals, but this is something else. I hope that now people who said that the game was fine as it is will understand why people voted for renewal of everything. doesn't look like 100 times more appealing?

    + as you can see he doesn't forget about health so I don't think that we need to worry about him overworking

    P.S. do you already have a channel there you will stream?

  4. Wow, those new visuals look great! That said, you should definitely focus on your health first. I'm sure the game will be great in time, but your personal well-being should take priority.

  5. Persistance beats resistance, getting away from your sicknesses and starting a steady workflow will help you a lot mentally

  7. Happy to hear your doing better overall health/lifestyle wise. The games can wait.

    Thanks for the update.

    1. I can't remember how many people pre-ordered, but so far only one person has asked for a refund.

      I share your desire, but definitely not your sentiment.

  9. Everything that you've put out so far, regardless whether it was finished or very rough has been oozing quality so far and hits that very special niche where you can tell a person put care into their work. (re)releasing kurovadis on steam would be much welcomed but at this point i will shill you even if you put out trash, so please keep people like me in mind and just have fun with what you do :)

  10. Glad to read you're much more stable now, and you're working on your health. Health always comes first.

    Kurovadis(as memory stands) was a great game, and I think it stands well enough on its own. Lufuclad is still pretty early in development it seems, I'd look most forward to development on that front(tho I understand why you paused on it).

    Noaika seems like it's the closest thing to completion, which is encouraging. Despite my interests, I think attacking Noaika would be best imo. Cheers, and good luck.

    Heads up, can't buy Kurovadis from your store.

  11. I'm a bit late to comment, I know, but I'm very excited, hoping to see Kurovadis on steam. I really enjoyed the Demo when I played it, but didn't buy the full version since I didn't really understand the site it was sold on. I would definitely buy Kurovadis very quickly if it popped up on Steam, as I greatly preferred it to Eroico.

  12. I'm glad you are getting better!
    I am excited to see things like LufuClad getting updated more! (:

  13. Nothing to report yet, Kyrieru-san? The idea of "re-working" Kurovadis is a good idea and both Lufuclad and Noaika look like good games, too. I hope to see how these projects turn out in the end.

    1. I hope this is just another case of one of Kyrieru hiatus. Especially after another dev just died from cancer recently.

      Just check their twitter and you'd see that Kyrieru was last seen very much alive 7 days ago.

      Research and investigation is the cure to your ailments.

    3. I'll be honest I totally forgot he had a twitter. With how fake woke and toxic twitter has gotten, I've been avoiding it.

    4. Wait who died?

  15. Been quite a while since there's been any new info on this.

      He's still doing shit, as referenced by him talking about art related projects and techniques on twitter.

      Delete
    2. None of his Twitter posts have any relation to Kurovadis at all. For all we know he literally could have not touched it since this last update. For something that, at one point, was stated to likely only take about a month, it's a bit disappointing.

      Delete
    3. I'm a bit miffed that he hasn't given any updates in a while either, but ya don't gotta be rude about it. And when was that month estimate given? Before or after the vote to overhaul the combat and animations? Because that stuff will take a while.

      Delete
  16. now I ain't saying things don't take time , I'm sure you're doing great work remastering this game , but there hasn't been an update and I'm low key scared you're going on hiatus again because you get side tracked on multiple projects.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I'm actually wondering the same thing as the guy above me, it's been nearly five months without an update and I really wish I knew where the progress of this Kurovadis revamp is at. Hope you can eventually spare the time to update us all on an exciting new version for Kurovadis.

  18. Ever thought about selling the game's current build and code to an international H-game publisher to let one of their trusted devs finish it for the current and new fans?

    According to Twitter posts from February, Kyrieru has been toying with 3D stuff. Mostly plants, by the looks of it.

    I may be overly optimistic but I'm still hoping for a Kurovadis release and maybe even an eventual Noaika release.

  22. I bought Kurovadis many years ago. It was a really fun game, so I'm excited to see where this goes.

  23. Whatever you're up to, I'm happy you're getting your life in order.
    You have given us plenty of cool stuff, so don't stress and take it easy. When you decide to pick things up again, we'll be here :-)

  24. Kyrieru's last tweet to date was on March 22nd 2022, even though they are not posting here. Thought I would just let people know in case like me you guys were worried.

  25. Blog is abandoned?

    1. It appears so, but Kyrieru is sort of active on Twitter, even though his last post was on March

      Delete
    2. Honestly, he does this quite a bit. He says he will post or is close to being done with a game and then disappears off the face of the planet. Then he pops up out of nowhere again.

  26. Just checked my email and found Naoika's unlock code. It was 7 years old. lole

    1. Yeah it's crazy how long it's been. It's even crazier considering Kyrieru threw his first two games together in just a couple of months. I'm glad I didn't pre-order Naoika back then because if I had I'd be really resentful right now.

  27. kyrieru has retired

    1. This post is almost a year old so that's pretty compelling evidence. Maybe he did retire. Or, god forbid, maybe he died. He was complaining about an undisclosed health issue.

      Kyrieru, if you're still alive please respond to this comment.

    2. Their last tweet was March 22nd, 2022. So hopefully they are doing okay and are just staying off social media.
