Got a few complaints about the redesign, although I'm still exploring...

The icons near the top of the front page need some descriptions next to them (same goes for the browsing pages). I like the look of the "P-Bot's picks" bit, most areas should look like that. Just a thumbnail may work fine for art, but I think games and movies need a bit more information without needing to mouse over. I think you should also include the score next to those.

The backgrounds are a bit overwhelming. They look cool and all, but it's hard to get used to them when they keep changing. Maybe just lower the contrast/brightness on them or something?

I don't really like how stars represent ratings now, that seems a bit unoriginal. But I don't have any better suggestions and I'll probably get used to it.

On the movie/games pages, I think the stats (filesize especially) should be a bit higher up on the page. But maybe it's just me who looks at that stuff.

Anyway, overall it looks pretty good, and I like how the big game icons look on my user profile :D

HalcyonicFalconX released a new CD, containing the soundtracks of Bullet Heaven and Adventure Story, since the EBF3 soundtrack eventually sold out.
If you like her music then consider grabbing a copy.

Also finished the animations for Godcat:
Part A
Part B

New CD and more Godcat

Well Adventure Story has been out for a few days now and it's doing reasonably well.
Go check it out if you haven't yet.

Kinda submitted it at a bad time; a lot of good games came out on the same week, but hopefully that won't matter much except for losing a few competitions.

Anyway, back to working on EBF4... oh wait, I still have to write a 100-ish page dissertation on Adventure Story, oops.

So much for having any sort of holiday...

Happy 2012!?

Adventure Story is finished, just doing some last minute testing.

It should be up on Kongregate in 2 or 3 days, and if there's no problems it'll probably be up here the day after that.

Christmas Present!

Should have all of the game's content finished in a week or so!
Then there's just stat balancing and a few minor features left to add.

Here's a wee video of the 3rd boss. The mage equipment isn't great for boss fights...

Spent the last few weeks slowly making levels for Adventure Story in between coursework.
Actually made a brief video about the process, in case anyone is interested:

Made a local 2-player version of Bullet Heaven for an HCI project.
You guys won't get to play it ever, because I don't plan on polishing it off.

It's gonna be a feature in Bullet Heaven 2 though.

Anyway, been too busy with school to do much Flash stuff. D:
