Alpha Build 5.4.1 (demo)

Alright, the AnimationViewer continues to be a butt. What I'm going to do is put up the build I have currently that just adds offspring (minus some bits of UI like being shown newborn monsters correctly) so that I have something more for patrons to play around with. I'm going to see if I can do an additional build tomorrow with the animations working and maybe some more of the UI if I can.

I still want to have a fully playable build (as far as breeding, time/energy and requests) ready by the 30th but some major features (saving, events, many traits, preferences) may not be available yet. I'm going to keep on putting up builds as soon as new features become implemented and keeping you guys informed of progress as it continues.

    1. Now THAT's a very nice first post.
      Greatly appreciated after the usual signs of shit storms for not perfectly done game vesions.

      Also, keep up the progress. We're counting on you!

    1. well then prepare to wait another 1-2 months or even more. And don't be surprised when you realize that all that waiting wasn't worth at all

    2. yeah, if you're just gonna bitch and moan you can shut the fuck up or whine about it somewhere else. if you think you can make a game like this better and in a shorter period of time then go right the fuck ahead otherwise quit your complaining.

  6. IMHO the new builds, even if unfinished, look more like a game to me than the old ones did. Maybe thats because you got rid of all the old stuff(Animations, Pictures, etc.) and remade the whole gameplay with more in mind, not just throwing new things at a wonky build which then dont function correctly

    Good Job and please take your time to polish and implement the new remade basis of your game
    Its better than before, and thats worth the wait! :)

    "(saving, events, many traits, preferences)"

    LMAO

    I knew that it will end like that again. Can't you just set up deadline for September 2016 for "finished"/"complete" 5.4?

    this was funny first or second time but now it's just pathetic.

    That whole idea to make new UI and system for literally everything while you are alone was WORST IDEA ever. You should just stick to old system and do updates with animations/events and make new system WHEN you hire someone that can help/do your job.
    ...oh wait no you wouldn't be even able to do updates with new animations since most of animators you have in your pseudo "team" are working on their own projects for Christmas/New Year/etc...

    1. It's funny how this project showed a lot more actual progress when money was only involved in small private donations rather than their monthly salary plan now?

      Doesn't it strike people as odd that they are paying for less and less and less per month? Where is all that money flowing to? The same goes for stuff on offbeatr. The only two people who actually get their shit done with transparency and commitment are Swegabe and Fenoxo. All the other just take the money and delay, run off, disappear, you name it.

      Sure we get bits of news and plans and images here and there but at this point you have to wonder if that stuff will even get into the game before 2020.

    2. Go fuck yourself Anonymous @5:35 AM. I've waited paitently for 2 ACTUAL months, you've waited a whole week. He's updated the game to 5.3 last month, and 5.2 the month before, while the patrons have been sitting. Also Anonymous @ 6:28 AM, not cool, dude. Not cool.

      I agree, this game should be working right now, but, again, the date on my calander says 25, not 30. He's five more days before everyone should freak the fuck out. If he ain't got shit a week from now, then jump ship, that's when I will. If he does, he's earned my money. I actually calculate the cash I have, and I can piss the money I spend on Patron a month. "OMG I SPENT A WHOLE $1?!!?!? THAT COULD BUY ME A WHOLE SODA DAWG!?!!!1"

    3. actually one dollar could by you hmmm, a soda cap. also i have been waiting for so long. i used to give 10.00 a month. then i quit because of this fucking horse shit.so you da ass-hat...faggot. there are some games made in 24 hours by
      1-2 people.and they are good fucking games.this game has been delayed over and over. also you patrons dont wait you get early access.moron.

    4. Um, moron, just 'cause we get "early access", doesn't mean we actually got anything. $10 a month my ass-hole, you'd know we had to wait during the months of August and September, besides, your whole, "NON PATRONS DON'T GET SHIT!" Comment kinda gives away the whole, "I used to, but now I don't."

      Dude, I participate in those 24 hour game jams, don't lecture me. If you wanna see the shit he's recoding, untwine the program. See that wonderful few blocks? (Doubtful, no working knowledge from your side of the shit pool) I'm lucky me and 2 others are able to do a tenth in a 24 hour session. Before bug fixing.

      Do it! Fuck H-Bomb he don't deserve any respect or more money from us for that comedy/parody he is showing for last months.

      "major features may not appear d blah blah" pardon what? What the hell H-Bomb? You are getting lots of money and after almost 3 months of delayed PLAYABLE new content you say that major content MAY not be added?

      I smell that soon this "project" will be dead, this site will be offline and H-Bomb will just vanish with all money he sucked from "sheeps" for almost nothing.

  14. Seriously everyone correct me if im wrong, but the only feature added in this update is a little box that says "Your monster has given birth to: (monster)" and then no monster is produced. I see nothing else. Not even funtional stats, not even function menus. Not even functional pens. I laughed out loud.

    I'm done H-Bomb, grow the fuck up. You're making 300,000 fucking dollars a year now. In the real world, you have to work to earn your pay and you're playing us for fools. I know the cancellation of my $10 patronage isn't going to make a dent in that absurd paycheck, but sooner or later, your lying and laziness will make this project crash to the ground.

    1. Dude, stop giving them money in advance.
      Hate to say it but Patrons are the reason why everything goes downhill. Why? Because they get money for nothing. When this was a private donation project, they had to work and THEN they got money. That's how it should be.

      Sure, 1 Dollar isn't much. I agree. But think about the big picture. You encourage them to be lazy. Make them work for the money again.

      Delete
    2. Yeah these people complaining are pretty silly. It was a clunky game to begin with, but if you liked it then okay why not pay ten bucks or something to express your appreciation and encourage further development. But paying that much EVERY MONTH is insane, for a game at this level of quality. There are far worse games and far better games, and this one is at the "good enough to buy if it costs $1 or less" level. It could get better but it probably won't, except through expansion of content. Good on the programmer for getting lucky, but I hope he doesn't take this project or its fans very seriously. He just stumbled into a "dummies give you their money" trap and sprung it and a lot of money rained on him; at no point did anyone do a good job at understanding anything or communicating to anyone (except S-Purple, who clearly understands how to draw nice-looking sprites). The game is bland, its UI is clunky, the audience has bad taste, and the audience also has no understanding of how long software development takes. It's just fools blundering into each other and spilling money. What is happening to this guy is little more than a lottery payoff and any conversation about it that doesn't recognize that fact is probably not going to get anywhere useful.

      (Incidentally, here is how long software development takes: Longer than you expect, even if you try to be pessimistic, and longer than you want. This is a widely known fact that shows up constantly throughout the software development industry. But Patreon donors are generally not knowledgable about software development and it is of course understandable that they wouldn't be familiar with this.)

    1. Atm the people who should be annoyed the most are the patreons, Im guessing your not one please correct me if that isnt the case. We pay a lil bit to get the game updates earlier, generally we are meant to be two updates ahead however public release has caught up. I don't count 5.4 as an update as its not finished, so really you shouldn't be angry as your on the same page as we patreons are, except we get an incomplete version which lacks a few features.

      H-bomb knows he's messed up and hes trying to set things right, for now all we can do is wait an be supportive ^^

  24. Really, what's your problem, people?
    You are all hating, yelling, cursing, and I still see nearly 5k patrons and 24k+ dollars in donations.
    Truth is, all of us can do with our money whatever we please. We could have a beer, bubble gum, make a donation to church or veteran fund, throw it in beggar's cup or slip in stripper's thong.
    Our money - our call.
    Some of us chose to donate a few bucks to this project. It's a good will on our part, and it is said on Patreon like a damn mantra.
    There is even a way for you to get your money back, if you think you are being swindled.

    If you think it is CRAP, then do not touch CRAP. Simple, I think, but apparently not for everyone.
    We are all adults here. Our money is our business. Cut your whining, and get on with your lives.

    1. if you use to buy a drink, you'd expect to get server a proper drink. One you can actually drink. In drinking condition. And not 3 moths later after you where charged 3 times from your former money (not yours anymore, neither the drink).

      When I give money for something, I usually know what I am paying for (even from the look of the pub, or from seeing how drunk the beggar is).
      When I see poor looking bar I acknowledge, that drink my be poor and service may be slow.

    Take your time, this games come a long way since its beginings. I cant wait to see it finished.

    If i were you i'd give the final product for free to your patrons and then sell it for $15 or more for the public. Because they way they're acting i dont think they deserve free stuff.

    1. He's getting 25k+ per month and there's still a nice backlog of private donations. Please don't try to take the moral high ground over money and who deserves what. There's a ridiculous shitload of money involved for too little over a long period of time.

    2. Sure, pay for nothing, why not. You're riddiculous with your judgement about giving game for free / forcing people to pay.

      When he's doing his job good then there comes patreons to support him. They will give money for project, probably even more than he need. From the other hand - do you realy think someone will pay $15 for flash game when it's done? Good luck!!
      When he's delaying updates several times, giving updates that are unplayable or already warning about next update being incomplete then patreons will just piss on this project. They will stop their support, wait for game to be done, eventualy they will download full game for free from "alternative" source.

      Keep giving your "support", white knight. Especialy ideas about selling game that's nothing about to be completed.

  30. I've been reading up on how to code in AS3 Flash and learning how to create and modify .swf animations in Flash professional CS5. I'm confident by next month I can start making simple test creations and save enough money to commission a few sprites each month. When early alpha gameplay is finished (lets say a year) I will join the kickstarter/patron community and start producing for a living. Talk about a great income and way to make your own business! I'm enlightened by the community and happy to see competition is scarce!

  34. The last update was a screen shot of the new UI. The new one badly and barely implements one of many missing gameplay elements. How on earth are people supposed to "play around" with it? At this point I'd settle for shoehorning the new animations into the un-rebuilt game engine while H-Bomb works out the bugs in the expanded system. Is that a possibility?

  35. Okay, yeah.
    I guess I'm pulling my patronage.
    I don't want to be rude and what we were given prior to this travesty was nice but this is the final straw. It's become abundantly clear that you didn't really have anything ready for the halloween release, and the fact that you dick us around and tell us we'll have something playable when we get this instead is a little pathetic. Until now I was very impressed with the changes that you'd given us because there was always something to see. A lot of people are saying that you just bit off more than you could chew, but you're making consistent and real money off of this now. The fact that it's slowing down is a bad indicator for the future. It's sad, anticipating something constantly and being handed little to nothing despite what we were promised. The weekly updates are nice and all, but we're still not really getting the full picture. Might be time for another quick apology, because we deserve one. Usually I consider it highly annoying when people get all indignant about something like this, but it's happened thrice and what we were given just isn't a big enough change from last time. Sorry, but get with it, H-Bomb.
