my stance on piracy of my games

it's gonna happen and i don't mind that to some extent, but please keep it out of my face and don't do it in my threads... it really hurts to have something i worked hard on trampled by people and saying what is effectively "I want to play your game but don't want to pay a few dollars for it"

i know some people honestly can't afford it, or don't want it appearing on their records...but there's a perfectly good donate button for the latter, and only one person has used it.


edit- TWO PEOPLE now... though this does seem to be a kindness donation as they allready bought both games on sale atm
edit2- NOPE...same guy :)

  1. I want to respect you so badly as a budding indie game maker, but you're just so presumptuous and unprofessional I can't stand it.

    1. could do with more detail than that, precisely what presumptions am i making and in what ways could i act more proffessional to placate you

    2. so direct comment.. yet you decide leave it so vague. Come on, if you have feedback or feel like throwing critique, why not give some weight to it?

  2. I'm hoping to get all your games at once sometime around the holidays. I'll admit I was tempted once or twice to go ahead and torrent 'em or something ahead of time and donate later, but I'd feel bad. Whereas I have no qualms doing that to big companies or indie developers that are jerks, you're too awesome to do that to. And honestly, you have enough hurdles developing these kinds of games as it is. Thanks for keeping at it despite making what I assume is not a lot of money so far. We fans appreciate it greatly and I look forward to rewarding your efforts when I can. :)

    1. i'm making an okay amount of money but my university student loan/grant is what's paying my rent atm... and i might get kicked off soon cause i've been ill a lot... my goal is to be making over £3900 per year by the end of my course in july...and i think i'm doing pretty good towards that goal i'm almost at £1000 for this tax year...

      incidentally i figured out a way of putting dlc into an rpgmaker game after ive finished production, what would you think of me adding meeaningful upgrades to a games and selling access to that content?

    2. Hmm, depends on what you mean by "meaningful upgrades". I'm not a fan of the DLC concept in general, but I can see cases where it -might- be worthwhile.

    3. I'm planning on releasing 3 extra mini chapters to the game, each adding a new evil character to overcome with their own unique game overs/fetishes and stuff...with a few nice items to help finish the game, and each new character is added to the demon lords damnation in the golden ending (you unleash tentacle monsters throughout the facility and anyone you've beaten ends up a tentacle slave for eternity...with the tentacles also making them immortal)

      the 3 characters are still being worked on but basically
      alexandria gordian- a dominatrix with obviously bdsm themed game overs and a temporary dominatrix outfit for the player, who might have to do sadistic things to complete the trials

      a witch with a candy fetish- her game overs feature body transformation like being turned into a milk slave and breast expansion...

      and lastly a chapter began by sleeping in an empty office (looks similar to other safe rooms) where an esper pulls you into her dream world and tries to seal you there so she can steal your body, i havent decided her fetish but she wants your body because she's paralysed
      and the first thing she does when she gets it is go fuck somebody/something

    4. might also wait and release them all as one expansion

  3. Hmm, can't say any of those appeal to me personally. ^^; But I'm sure they will to others.

    It probably is a good idea to split up DLC by theme/fetishes involved, though. If you mix them all together, people may be put off by some and won't buy the DLC, whereas they would for individual "packages" themed around the ones they like.

    1. well of course i'd be selling them individually, but it's only fair i sell a bundle as well at a discount

      Delete
    2. oh, and this means i wouldnt have to wait for all 3 to be finished before releasing

      Delete
  4. ...ack. Meant to publish that comment back on the previous comment string. ><; Well, you know what it was in response to xD

  5. I haven't pirated any of your games, but I would like to buy them when I have cash. Only problem is that, well...

    I click on the DLSite link button page thing you have on the side, but it takes me to a site all in Japanese, and I can't understand what in hells name I'm doing.

    Is there any way to buy them from you without having to go to the Japanese site thingy?

    1. if you want to purchase from dlsite all you do is change the RJ in the url to RE
      but it's cheaper to use my other methods, the game tabs have paypal option where possible
