2013-03-10 20:48:05 by matt-likes-swords

Vote 5 etc.

You guys get a new fullscreen feature, which most other sites don't support. Hurray!
Also, tons of medals.

Just one thing. If you've started on Kongregate is there a way to move the save over? It's been amazing so far.

matt-likes-swords responds:

Yeah, but you'll have to do it manually by digging through your Flash cookies.

Once again, great to have a Flash Masterpiece on this site. The games you make are always wonderful, with all of them having a charm that can let anybody enjoy them. The characters have their charms as well. We have Matt, who's only goal is to collect swords and be the strongest and work with his friends. We have Lance, who sought to fix the earth but was misguided in his ways, and now wants to redeem himself, and help his partners with their adventures. We have Natalie who seems to adore Matt, and yet is adored by Lance, and this can lead to awkward situations, including her awkward amount of fan service as she so kindly puts it. And now there's Anna, who seems like the only truly sane one of the group. Well I guess Natalie is sane as well. Okay it seems the men have no brains here. The battles are always awesome, with skills that are amazing and give you that feeling of power that one wants in an RPG. And yet enemies don't fall easily, no matter how strong you get, if you let your guard down. Enemy designs are always great, with a balance of mysticism and technology combining into a deadly weapon force. And the music's always great too. I hope to see you make more of these games, but if you moved on, I'd be happy knowing you were putting your work into something. Hell, imagine if you somehow made a full feature game. One that was a commercially sold game. I'd buy it in a heartbeat.

Hell yeah. Played your betas, man, I really have to say, it's amazing. Gotta play the sh*t out of it.

Someone mentioned that the medals don't work, I'm not sure if you already solved it or there wasn't a problem at all, but they work now, so no worries.

So... is it up on steam yet? :)

matt-likes-swords responds:

Dunno, I tested them and they seemed to work from the start....

Grats to all the artists who entered the creature contest, you're shit rocked.
And thanks matt for considering us for our ideas to be included into your story; That practice helped me win some awards for college contest i submitted to.

So far the game is amazing, but I have to ask one thing, is it just me or does switching to fullscreen with keyboard controls on make the wasd keys stop working for control. It's a bit akward to have to use the arrow keys and space bar with my pinky.

Just thought I would check.

Couple things...first, wish I could have keyboard and mouse controls on at the same time. Second, cancel ALL menus simply by trying to movie? If you've got fidgety hands that love tapping your keyboard, that can suck. Speaking of the menus, as nice as the game is, EBF3's felt a bit....easier. (That said, 4 is one of the best flash games of all time.)

*Fangasm mode activated*
So I caved, and two days later... oh gods... it is a work of art. It isn't a game, it isn't a flash, it is purely a work of creative art. I especially love the beautiful version of EBF3's (?) title theme. And the character interactions! Those are great. EBF3 felt linear (was still awesome tho, make no mistake) and the characters didn't really interact much, just some one-liners or so. And the cutscenes were narrated by a 3rd person (Godcat?). But now they interact, and chat, and tease, and ask for tips on bust-increasing (odd thing to talk about in a deep dark dank cave full of monsters)! The characters are awesome! I love the addition of flairs and their effects. I ADORE the background animations, idles, and so on so forth (tho my computer can't handle them too well, I leave on medium quality and all animations checked, so far so good).
Overall, I can't rate this game high enough! It is truly a work of art, and well worth the multi-year wait!

However, naturally there is always some level of cons. And for me, I feel getting AP is a monsterous pain! I am a grinder, I love disgaea and have played its incarnations 100s of hours (356h on Disgaea 2 is best record yet), but some of these fights drag on forever, and I don't feel the AP reflects the effort, but.. that is just me, I'ma still grind and like it. It is just.. I beat "dungeon" two (crystal caves) and most of my skills are STILL at their level one incarnations. I can't tell if it is just that AP is harder to get, or powering up skills costs too much, or if I am just being a whiny baby.. which is possible, haha. THAT is pretty much the only thing that bothers me. Still an easy 15/10

I can only hope that your next little "spin-off", if one is made, is a tower defense. I mean, you did a curtain fire, then a platformer... I think the notion of each "spin-off" being a different game genre is an interesting and unique approach, and wholly endorse it!
I've blathered enough, I'm done.
