Indie developer since 2003, I have created sport simulation games, roleplay games, strategy / war games and recently visual novels and dating sims.
Check my forums here, there are some thread with tips/tricks:
Not sure, I submitted it but was never approved. I think I might eventually offer the complete game here (base+expansion) to solve the situation, but need to reinstall the client and right now I'm in middle of a new release ^_^;
No the expansion works even with this version. There's a new beta version (but is stable, I'm just too busy to release it officially) in my forums as well:
Unfortunately both Vera games sells very poorly so it's very unlikely that will put the second here, or that will make a 3rd game, sorry ^_^
You can replay any romance scene from the gallery, so is enough to replay them in uncensored mode from the main menu :)
Wait, now that I check better, the client version is the 1.2! that's the latest stable version. I have some version in my forums, but are in testing!
So you get the same version you get from my site. Only if you want to test the version in my forums, but those aren't even officially released ;)
For Planet Stronghold instead I just updated it, a week ago. So is not like I wasn't updating them, they're just SLIGHTLY outdated (of course I can't put test versions here)!
See I have so many things to do that I didn't even know that I had already uploaded the most recent versions! ;)
Well the version here is some months old I think, not like is ancient :)
Yes, if you do a clean install just redownload the demo (that unlocks in the full game) from my site and register again. Is a few clicks more than using a client, but not too much annoying I think :)
Yes I understand what you mean, is a tough decision for me. You might think that is enough to upload a new version, but I need to change some values to make the build, and when I have too many things to do, I need to be careful. Some time ago I even uploaded a full version by mistake on Desura :D
In other words, is not that I don't want to do it but I need to find the time to do it carefully :/
sorry saw your post only now :D
No, I used royalty free music so the license doesn't allow me to resell it, and the original track costs more than the game :)
For future games I'm using a musician though, for example Bionic Heart 2 (on preorder on my site) has a full OST of 10 tracks.
I am running a sale with 40% off using the coupon "EASTER" on my site too.
But is not like this version is "ancient", is just slightly outdated :) the amount of content is the same.
Sorry, it's that has become a pain to keep it updated both on my site and here (because I use other system on my site and not full version download), and considering the incredibly low sales I'm getting here, is not really worth my time...
Anyway, will try to update both games now (Loren's expansion is still not approved by mods so I gave up on that one).
It should work, but you need to get the updated demo from my website :) version 1.2 to be more accurate.
the first two chapters :) overall the demo as length is about 10-15% of the game, more or less
Don't know yet, but will think about it!
No clue, I submitted the expansion already, but they need to approve it first! :)
Hmm it doesn't load or you can't see it ?
Cool. I am waiting for their approval and then the expansion should be here :)
If you liked Planet Stronghold I think you'll absolutely love Loren, everyone says is my best game so far :)
I think if you download it from my site, it should work fine indeed, maybe try that :)
I updated the Pc version but for the Linux I only updated the full download so not the updater (I don't have a linux computer so I don't know how to upload the file myself).
I'm not sure honestly - the tool I use lets me make a Linux build but I don't use Linux myself so I cannot test if works of Linux x64 :(
Haha yeah it was the last game I made that I wrote myself. If you checked Loren, you will agree that is much better written. From now on I'm only using external writers so future games will always have decent writing :)
Yes I think should be able to add it, might take a bit of time since I'm new to doing a DLC in Desura so need to learn :)
Yes, most of the time people judge only based on the screens/videos ;)
(not just for my game, in general!) thanks
Well the game has a big relationship/camp talk stage. If you play at Hard level (as a real RPG player should! ;)) you won't have easy time and you'll need to do some grinding. If you enjoy reading the story, I can tell you that the full story is over 150,000 words.
Maybe you can also ask in my forums ?
But people in general seems to have no regret buying it for the length.
Thanks! Crossing fingers :)
Did you play the full game or are you just basing your impressions from the demo only? because I've a lot of people who really enjoyed the game story. Tastes are tastes.
Ok the speed issue SHOULD have been fixed already in the expansion, of course will need some testing first. Hopefully end of this month beta is available :) thanks
The balancing issue you mention are the one related to the "speed" cheat ? or something else?
