Team expansion and survey

I figured I'd let you all know that we expanded our team this month.
We mainly did this using our own funds (more detailed news over on Patreon).
Boxman supports us as pixel artist, while Zhuan is responsible for writing and Regris takes care of marketing and PR.

To start this off, here's a first message from Regris:

Hello! It's a pleasure to meet you all, this is Regris and I'm taking a position with PR/Marketing to  help with Projekt Wolfenstahl, and more importantly, Wolf and Cres' workloads.

So if you all have a bit of time, could you please spend a couple of minutes on the survey below? We do not intend to make any individual person's results public, but I do want to talk about the results in a general scope afterwards.

Once again, it's great to be working with all of you!

Deathblight RPG progress update


I figured a new progress update on the Blog would be due!

We've been a bit slower than usual in april, due to Cres having a foot surgery.
(no worries, everything went well)
But we're back to full work speed now!

We finished another CG, facial expression changes are still missing though.
The Minigame for Ferania's bouncer job is roughly 95% done.
Graphics are still missing for it, but we'll get there.

We also expanded our team this month.
But I'll spare the details for another blogpost.

Shoutout for Desecration of Wings and Lewdware

Today I figured I'd give a shoutout to two games that just got released ^^
(yup, we're working on DB RPG as fast as possible, no worries!)

Desecration of Wings:
http://store.steampowered.com/app/793450/Desecration_of_Wings/

Desecration of Wings is an RPG Maker game made by Sierra Lee.
You may know her writing from Deathblight RPG.
So if you like to read Sierra's original stories, you may want to take a look at this game or at other games she made in the past!

Also, you can download a NSFW patch on Sierra's blog:

Lewdware:

Links are in the description of the video.

This game is made by the people from Shady Corner.
It's a collection of minigames (or microgames?).
I tried some of them and they are quite funny in various ways.

This is the polished version of the last release.
We now work on implementing the first of the jobs into the game.
Ferania's job of being a bouncer and a stripper!

Beware, old save files may cause bugs.
Please start a new game to prevent this!

Or use one of the save files provided with the game (Alpha 4.1 onwards).

The Alpha 4.1 version for DB RPG is now available on Patreon.
You can find the post with Alpha 4.1 here if you have Patreon access:

Keep in mind that you need the RPG Maker VX Ace RTP to run this game:
http://www.rpgmakerweb.com/download/additional/run-time-packages/thankyou-rtp-vx-ace
(the RTP includes graphics and other standard assets of RPG Maker that are required)

As usual, Alpha 4.1 will be made public once the next major version (Beta 1) is done and released on Patreon.
Have fun playing the game!

Here's the changelog for Alpha 4.1.

 Changelog Alpha4.1 - 28/02/2018:

- Added more lore to the dungeons. You can now find out more of what happened in certain areas.
  Loook for open books to tell you the story.

- Fixed recolored enemy sprites turning black again when defeated

- Increased dash speed by 50%

- Added more NPC dialogues when in a different state.

- Spaced out the enemies appearing in the Failure bossfight more, so they don't overlap as much-

Shoutout for Kagura Games

We're still working towards Alpha 4.1, getting as much of the feedback into the game as possible, as well as polishing the content from Alpha 4 as much as we can.

However, more importantly, we also want to give a shoutout to Kagura Games and their game release on Steam!
http://store.steampowered.com/app/791330/Fallen_Makina_and_the_City_of_Ruins/

Maybe some of you want to take a look at "Fallen ~Makina and the City of Ruins~".
It's an RPG Maker MV game, very story driven, simple gameplay and CG scenes that are connected to the story.
There's some corruption mechanic when Makina engages in lewd activities.
Despite there's no combat hentai, it's still a pretty good game, also the english translation is really really good!
(it's an actual translation in fact, no machine translation)

So maybe some of you might like the game ^^
Check out the screenshots and trailers and see for yourself.
Personally, I enjoyed what I played so far.
Makina is pretty and I really like her personality a lot.

P.S:
Yes there's also an uncensor patch:

Summary of 2017 - Happy New Year

Let me start this off by wishing you all a happy new year!
I hope you were able to enjoy a nice christmas season.

Looking back at the year, I guess this was one of the better years for us.

First of all we need to thank each and everyone of you for your support, especially our supporters on Patreon! We're very grateful for your help and dedication in creating everything Deathblight related.

Let's talk about the bad things that happened this year, and then get to the good ones.
Our game designer (Blade) suddenly became homeless this summer.
But we helped him to find an appartment and after a stressful Alpha 3 release things went back to normal mostly.
Other than that, I think there wasn't really anything specifically bad this year.
(only minor hiccups along the way, like everyone experiences in life, so nothing special)

So on to the good things!
Our fanbase grew quite a bit this year, thank you everyone!
Other than that, the webcomic progressed smoothly and we managed to release new major releases of Deathblight RPG in march and end of august, as well as several minor releases in between.
We didn't quite make it for the december release (current Alpha 4) but we're almost there and pushing hard to release it the next couple days.
(we worked 6 day weeks during the past weeks and christmas and didn't really enjoyed much time off, that's some dedication haha, at any rate, no worries, we'll make sure to take at least 1 week off after the Alpha 4 release to regain some energy!)

With our Patreon campaign growing, I'm thinking about possibly hireing a pixel artist to finally continue Deathblight Apocalypse.
I know it's the 5000 $ milestone on our list, and we've still got ways to go to reach that (currently we're at 3000 $).
But as always I'm planning ahead and I guess it wouldn't hurt to look for people to hire ahead of time.
That being said, let's see how the next year will be!

See ya next year and let's hope it will be even better.
