    1. While I'm a fan of Schwig in general I do think some of this stuff's a bit on the cutesy side.

    2. I dunno, that character portrait is definitely an improvement. :)

    3. Yeah, the new art looks a little too 1990s. 8-Bit colors with sharp edges.

  9. So Good, Love hearing from you more frequently, keep it up.
    P.S. are you two going to have a team name or just be "H-Bomb and Shwig"?

  10. The new artwork is really great and the game also. Keep it up, look forward for new updates.

  11. Point of concern, the new art looks great but I notice that there isn't room to add new barns in the picture and therefore no new monsters; are you planning on enlarging the ranch background to add more room? I'm just concerned that you may be limiting the potential of the game in the long term. Basically, where would new barns go?

    1. I believe our plan is to have the ranch scroll down to more building spaces.

    2. Cool, as long as there's a plan. I just hate to see a game with so much potential get neutered by missing small details like that.

    3. You could also introduce some mechanism where you can rent additional land for your ranch in order to unlock the option to buy new barns.

      It could go something like this: you find that you've bought all the ranch upgrades, but you still know that there are more monsters (per example, because that saint told you so or because the store sells consumables from creatures you still can't find.) So you visit the mayor of the town, and they give you some task (fulfil three gold-level requests for the mayor, they're feeling lonely and want a few interesting pets) which gives you (the option to buy) some meadow that expands your ranch, which in turn unlocks the new upgrades.

  12. Wow. Have to say I am seriously impressed by there

  13. Hello, I am French and I use(get) a translator of English thus it is normal that my English is not good

    Then, I would like to congratulate you on your game(set,play), because it is very good, nevertheless I would like to propose you certain ideas which could make him(it) more good, according to me

    1) Put an animation for all the situations (reproduction, harvest)

    2) Choose the sex of our adversity (male, female, futa)

    3) Create three new races (succubus(female and futa), orc(male and female) and golem(male and female))

    Here we are, I hope to provide to bring a bit extra to your work

    Ho, and I hope that in this new version you monster female shall have quite a big breast

  14. Shut up and take my money!!!

  16. i see you plan to revamp everything withg that art style... yet so far all your animations have been using flash shape tweaking but the new art style just begs for frame-to-frame pixel animation which would dramatically increase file size and work load

    ReplyDelete

    1. That's what I'm wondering - the artwork we have seen so far is pixel art which can't be animated the way vectors are meaning that every ounce of content in the game so far will have to be remade, in a slower and less efficient way.

      Unless the current monster design is kept, but then they will look completely out of place next to these backgounds

      Delete
    2. The way I understand it is that all the old art and animations are being redone and will be phased out as it is completed. Think of the old stuff as merely placeholders now.

      Delete
    3. Pretty much all the animation in the game currently has been done using Motion tweens, rather than Shape tweens, so replacing the vector graphics with pngs is very doable. That said, Shwig is going to make more intermediate parts for me so that the animation can be less rigid and transition between different angles more naturally.

      The effect we'll be shooting for will be something akin to the animation in Vanillaware games, I imagine: http://i.imgur.com/iNLVRti.gif

  17. So, I'm making my bi-weekly rounds of my favorite dev-blogs and... wow.

    I actually re-checked the address to make sure I'm still on the right page. The art is just... woah. I have no words and I must scream (out of joy)* The game looks tremendously good.

    I WANT TO THROW MONEY AT YOU TWO. I'M SMASHING IT AGAINST THE SCREEN BUT IT JUST BOUNCES BACK.
    My body is ready \o/

  18. This is really awesome keep up the good work

  19. i know there have been a couple of naysayers regarding shwig's art for this game, but i think it could be a perfect fit, and it's gorgeous to boot! i am concerned that the new style will make it hard to re-do the animated parts of the game, though, since it does seem to warrant frame-by-frame spritework. curious to see how you two handle that particular hurdle, i'm sure it'll look awesome!

  20. Really psyched about the new artwork, looks great!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I have to say that I like your current monster design.

    That art up there looks great, but I hope the art style and design differences will be minimal.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Hmm, I already anonymously posted how psyched I am about this, but I do have a concern:
    In the pic of the breeding ranch, we see the usual buildings (harpy nest, dickwolf kennel, etc). Wouldn't this necessarily limit the number of structures to house creatures in, or will the ranch be redone when more creature types and there relative pens are introduced. Or are there no plans for new pens/creatures?
    Additional kudos, great move going with Shwig, yadda yadda :)

    1. I already asked that earlier in this post. Seems that he plans to just have additional acres/areas that we be accessible when new barns become available.

  23. Is there a download link? if not when might i expect to see a downloadable SWF version?

    ReplyDelete
  24. Less indy. More resolution! The Design is good, but a high level of pixelation is not serious...

    ReplyDelete
  25. I'M GETTING TOO HYPED FOR THIS SHIT
    WE'LL FINALLY SEE HIS ART ON A VIDYA GAEM

    ReplyDelete
  26. I really like all the new art and all and game/story improvements you talk about,but shouldnt more focus be on some more animation combos? Although I admit its fun to play even with the animations turned off, we have to remember people play this because its a porn game. We play to LOOK at attractive sprites doing the naughty. I was kind of disappointed to hear you didn't plan on doing combos for each.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Wow, that's very impressive. Can't wait to see that fully implemented.

  28. Maybe some slower idles animations would be good and different styles of them (Would make the game more peaceful, specially in combination of the new art) -- this could be taken to make different personalities by the monsters in a future sight! In the cage the cat could sleep at the floor or stand at the wall -- it would make it atmospherically! (Same animated birds in farm picture would be fine or contend like this. A cat that walks in the town from one side to the other sometimes!)

    The Art is fine, it makes it round and give it something special but a end of a right decision should be taken by an animated sample! I finde the representative style from the bildungs in the art to excessive!

    The Town is to small in art, I would try to make it posible switch to "right", "left" and "depth" (the way they are in the future picture) by the centralplace of the town. It shold be expandable for future idears, a bank, park or a cafe for people! In other distriks it would be interessting to set there a carpenter and sawmill! The Last two could used to upgrade the bildings or build them! Are they not in it, the Town will be more expandable in the head for the player!

    Sample for the point of view from the farm:

    Some Stuff, nothing importend:

    Why a breeding game only? Maybe it would be more interessting to set some farm stuff in it for food! Yes, this Option is already in the game but this is special "food"! A forest to catch monsters, maybe then the only way to catch some elves. The monsters could breed with skills for farm work, and defend or something too -- special skills for this actions, a figthing system... ! A buttstallon used do plowing the field... . Cats... cats are everywhere :-) ! Wolfes to hunt, demons to fight, elves to lead the Buttstalon and a Hollutaus for... milk! A holutaurus would be interessting to breed to give more milk... ! Customers could lookout for these quality!

    Personaly, I have so many monsters but no function for them only to sell them!

    Have fun in creation of it
