Doing a link-a-thon with a friend and watching a bunch of old trailers from the 80’s/90’s. Growing up on this stuff, it was just so good. Believe it or not, a lot of this stuff inspired me as a kid. It still does. Everything is 99% CG now, so it really makes me appreciate older film so much more.
I think it’s awesome you could get away with this and it would all make sense. Everyone wanted to be Eddie Murphy as a kid. EVERYONE!
i shall explain in the form of human speech! i’ll try to get these going once a week perhaps.
Want to say thanks to all of the people who follow and support RN: Libra. Happy holidays, everyone!
Thank you dood. All I can do is buckle down and try again later. I love the concept of technology and science and how it’s advancing at an alarming pace. We as human beings, I feel like we’re not evolving quite as fast. We can put a human on a different planet but not solve world hunger. It’s sort of my own personal representation of some of my views on the world in the form of robots and machines in a fantasy world. But it’s layered in a way that almost anyone can enjoy.
The game plays a lot into that, especially things like technology vs tradition. Thanks agains man, it’s great that the game can perk the interest of people not especially interested in RPGS.
I would love to compile a bunch of the games concepts, show people the original characters, do some illustration, etc. Big artbook for people to check out, but yeah, all of that stuff is pushed way back(in the year 20xx…..). It’ll happen dude, but not anytime soon.
Plz take a Libra sketch at the beach as a minor consolation.
I meant to post this weeks ago, but it just eluded me. Check out Buck and Miles. Goodluck Drule! Keep mak gaemz.
Yeah, no problem.
Evan is a really great dude, a friend actually found him for me and I loved all of the stuff he did. Incredibly nice guy as well. From what I remember I don’t recall if he had a website or not. I’m leaning towards no, because I would have posted it earlier. But yes, dat be his email. I am sure he would be more than happy to find cool stuff to work on. Guy totally deserves it.
Treat him well, moonside…..treat him well…..
Just taking it easy and drawing a bit. Monster design is my favorite aspect because it allows you to have 100% freedom with the concepts. More stuff on the way, but I been pretty lazy, so.
Hey everyone. Barkley 2 has just went up on Kickstarter so you should totally go support it! It’s beautiful so far, amazing art by Frankie,Konix, Medieve. The Kickstarter has tons of content, neat rewards, so if you like indie games, you got to at least click the link once. Please.
I’m really happy for these guys, and I’m honestly proud of them. They deserve it, they work hard, they like game design, they’re all incredibly talented people. It’s really great to see people that I started game design with, in a community, grow and expand, and it’s really awesome. Everyone is still connected even though the community that everyone used to hang out and make junk is long gone.
So please, support this is if you can. I can’t stress enough how this is worth donating to. Goodluck, buds!
did this forever ago.
Hey doods. I want to briefly touch on a few things that I might possibly get into later idk, but Rainbow Nightmare: Libra is on hold for however how long. If you don’t know, the Kickstarter was a failure, which I kind of expected but I want to give a shout out to all the cool dudes and gals who supported it. I really appreciate it.
But yeah, I need some time to figure out what to do with the game now since I can’t work on it full time. As far as the Kickstarter experience, it was pretty awful. It’s something I wouldn’t openly do twice. I get no joy in advertising or constantly debating with myself if I should stretch the truth. Some people can do that very easily, it’s just not something I’m comfortable with. The only thing I thought was really cool was finding people who got behind the project, got a lot of emails curious and interested in how everything works and what to expect. I really liked that, and I got to talk with some really nice people.
I don’t think it failing is that tragic. I mean of course I’m disappointed(wap wapp wap), but something that upsets me even more is having a game up and on the left of it you have a guy committing obvious fraud, getting rewarded for it and nobody even questions it. On the other side you have people using free resources which involve absolutely no work getting rewarded because people do not know it is free content. It’s pretty disgusting.
There is nothing you can do about it but just shrug, unfortunately. You might be thinking “lolujellyman” well, I mean not really. My own game failed on my own watch, it was my own shortcomings or whatever. That is reality, but like I said, people getting rewarded and getting a free ride for no work is the thing that people should be worried about. The more people who commit fraud with fake games the harder it will be for people to commit later on other projects because people will be skeptical because they’re constantly getting scammed.
This is pretty accurate based off advanced statistics (I just made it up but it looks accurate from my perspective)
I dunno man, it’s like, these people get behind you and support it out of their own pockets and that is how you thank them? use freeware material, use mock ups hoping to get a ton of cash. The least you can do is show the work. And yet a game like Moment of Silence is currently at 2k with 14 days left. Like, it does not make sense to me.
I do have a few game posts that I have been saving so I will be posting those very soon. Someone had asked about commissions and that is currently open since I have the game on hold for now. Best way to reach me is:

Really beautiful image by Dragol. Dat Lady Libra. No really, I like this image so much that it is officially my laptop background image. Thank you so much for your wonderful work. I meant to post this earlier but things be getting in my way, ya’ll.
Do us all a flavor and check out Dragols great work at:
Don’t forget Moment of Silence is still running a Kickstarter with plenty of time left:
(they really need to make it available for people with paypal to donate. what dew)
I did this earlier to get my mind off stuff. It was pretty fun, so I thought I would share my inspiration(I keep calling it 5 different things) tree. I didn’t have nearly enough room for everything sadly. These aren’t in any specific order. You’ll have to click the url because it’s kind of a big one.
When I look at the chart it reminds me of the people who inspired me to create and pass on those creations in hopes of other people being inspired from them. My friend was telling me how that was probably the last honest thing in this world and I kinda agree.

Hooray for creative content! If you also want to do an IM (I call it an inspiration chart) here is the template that someone linked me. I suggest you try it. It’s pretty nice to look at. The only problem is I did not have enough slots! I don’t think there would be enough, ever.
I saw the guy who created Middens post a Kickstarter through his Tumblr. While I personally feel like the gameplay is pretty rough from a design perspective, I can tell he has put hard work and a long time with his art into his projects and I really feel like he is trying to share something with people.
There are scammers and people trying to make a quick buck off Kickstarter at the expense of people believing in others ideas, and I know this is an honest project. You’re really supporting art and creativity with this one. People do enjoy the game as well, because he is using it as an expressive medium. It’s something different. Personally, it’s like an interactive art gallery with amazing content for me.
This is all I can do for the guy for now. Which sucks. Goodluck my friend and I wish you the best.
