Hey kids. Now I'm not normally known as the type of person who does generous or selfless things. But I felt all of you needed a preset for... whatever it is you do. I'm certainly not going to assume any of you were nice.
Stocking Stuffers was produced last year by myself and Chicmonster for a charity game jam. The whole shebang raised something like 500 bucks, so that was something. But now it's a year later and we're giving it to YOU for NOTHING. Get angry.
The itch.io page to download it is here. Chic wrote a post-mortem on her blog you can read here. Go have fun, and remember: I am smiling.
McArthy suffered again due to the usual Hasbro oversight problem, forcing contrived plot points that stick out badly. Other than the obvious hand of executive meddling, I liked the story and the music was top notch as usual.
It also had Lyra and Bonbon in a piano duet. Lyra. Piano. Figure that one out.
tl;dr Saturday, 5: 30 pm in the hall of stars for Grem's panel.
In case you've been living under a rock for a while, this week will be the one with Bronycon happening in it. On it. Around it.
Now, last year we did a demo. Turns out demos are exhausting and consume 100% of your time when you're supposed to be enjoying a convention. They also cause your throat to get sore from the constant talking. So we won't be doing that.
On the other hand hoof, two of our team members Gremlin Grenade and Silfoe are going to be on a panel about their other game, and we'll probably be in the audience to harass them as is our custom. That'll be on Saturday at 5: 300pm in the Hall of Stars.
If you hear anybody laughing in the audience, that'll be me.
You may also use this thread to coordinate with one another on meetups at the con. If any of our forum goers are attending, to drop me a line. Who doesn't love making new friends?
It's a rhetorical question.
As promised, here's the details as best I know them.
Darkflame (artist/level designer) and Toasty (?? Your guess is as good as mine) will be on the "Games Ponies Make" panel at 11 : 30 on Sunday, July 6th. This will be in the Orcas hall.
We have prepared a short trailer. There will be no demo as apparently those two have no actual place to demo the game.
In addition, you'll be able to confront talk to DarkFlame and (presumably) Toasty at their booth in the vendor hall when they aren't off goofing around and/or stealing fire extinguishers. Details on this handy image.
Gee, you're probably wondering where that update is. Well it's here, you're reading it, so stop wondering.
Yes, we are doing something at Everfree Northwest. I am still waiting for final confirmation from the Bluescreen Bronies/ButtonMash Bronies/whatever they call themselves now, but as I understand it we will be sending DarkFlame and ToastyJustice to do a panel with them and show a trailer of MMX.
Information on the convention is here. I will do another post as the con draws closer to specify exactly what/where/when will be presented.
Did you know there was a cyberpunk game jam last week? That literally just ended?
If you did, did you know we took part?
(We referring to myself, Darkflame, Chic, newcomers Gremlin and Silfoe, and some other people not part of Starlight).
Well, we did. The main page is right here (slightly NSFW) and our game is right here.
Now, in addition to being so kind and tweeting about this on #cyberpunkjam about how much you love our game, this is also a very useful test.
The engine of the game is Sugar^3, same as it will be for Megamare-X. Therefore, I would greatly appreciate it if you forum goons would be so kind as to test it for compatibility. If you experience crashes on startup or bizarre effects like screen tearing, it'll help immensely to get bug reports in the comments below.
So far, only one person has had a problem, and it may have been due to outdated graphics drivers. Thanks...
