Yo! The beta for Moonbright is up now. Shoot me a message if you'd like to test the game- I'll add you to the credits once everything is set to go. I'm planning on posting the game July 5th, so jump in now if you wanna have enough time to play and get your name in the credits before it goes live to everyone else :D

A lot of people are spending time with families to celebrate the 4th. You may want to provide more time than that.

Haha, my spellslinger punches her in the side of her head! I very rarely do anything indicating that I use magic. Get a scroll. Use a scroll. Fight like Donatello with my staff the rest of the time.

KungFuSpaceBarbarian responds:

ahh point taken. i'll add some additional abilities based on class to the start of the game- give the spellslinger a few spells to use instead of fighting with melee weapons, things like that. good call ;)

Still, this is significantly bigger. I just finished doing everything as a Human spellslinger. There's still the other races and classes to check through. Phew... man.

KungFuSpaceBarbarian responds:

Hahaha don't feel like you need to do everything! Just spot checking is fine. It's much more complex than the first one

"Give it food and it will live;
Give it water and it will die."

I was really hoping you had a secret with choosing the pizza at the start of the game to use as the food to let it live.

KungFuSpaceBarbarian responds:

Ohhh maybe I can do a fun pizza riddle next time haha. I think this game ended up being overall more serious than light-hearted. I need to strike a better balance next time

I didn't find a use for the string, nor a secret mancave with an orgasmically attractive game creator in all of this. Is there a use and I somehow missed the route, and is there a delicious piece of eye candy offering up a bag of ass-whooping dice?

(Updated ) KungFuSpaceBarbarian responds:

Hahaha I didn't add a secret room with myself this time, I didn't want to overdo it. But if you think an additional secret would be good to have I can certainly find a cool way to add one. A hidden Grove in the woods or something where fairies give you some cool killer items to beat the baddie at the end. Or I can add you in! Anything you'd like to give a hero?

Same for the painting and the treasure... any use to any of that, or just loot to have and look at the end?

KungFuSpaceBarbarian responds:

The treasure will let you buy everything- all items, dragon armor, sharpened weapons, etc. The painting doesn't do anything tho so I can take that out. There are enough items you can take that do have value

*You come across a secret grove surrounding a pedestal in the middle of a spring. Pointlessly elaborate, but I'm just narrating. It's not like I decorated any of this... I mean, nevermind. You find a photograph on the pedestal and... do photographs exist in this... no, no, no! Just gonna... sigh. Ok, so you get curious and look at the photograph.*

Then, it's actual picture of you wearing or doing something dumb/embarrassing.

*You silently turn around and head back to camp. After this is all over, your next adventure will be to find a spell of unseeing."

(Updated ) KungFuSpaceBarbarian responds:

Lmao XD

What did you name your spelling on the first playthrough?

You mean my name typed in at the start of the adventure? Goblin Junk Bot

(Updated ) KungFuSpaceBarbarian responds:

Yeah hahaha. I can put a goblin junk bot in the secret Grove to say something amusing to players and give them advice or a cool item.

I don't do shit like that. I hate people and tell bad jokes. I'd beat that adventurer to death with a sock filled with metal pog slammers.

(Updated ) KungFuSpaceBarbarian responds:

That's a valid secret room. I'll have a goblin junk bot do that to people if they punch mirasandra

Mmmmh, I love the options in this game a lot. <3 It's certainly a darn sight more fleshed out and can result in forks in the beginning, forks in the end. I did take quite a few of them (I'm a Templar by default, of course ^_-), and ultimately after quite a bit of fucking around and not realising where the save slot was, I finally got the hang of it.

I could imagine the save slot being used for something way longer and drawn-out, but that's just me.

As for ambient music, did you manage to figure out Howler.js yet? I was thinking about the Okami intro with its really sinister ambience when we got to Moonbright.

KungFuSpaceBarbarian responds:

thanks for testing! i made a few tweaks to the spellslinger this morning to add more magic abilities and i added a fun new secret that can be unlocked when you beat the game

i haven't figured out howler yet but i'm working on it. i really want music in this game. right now i can get music to start playing, but as soon as you click a new option the music restarts, which is super frustrating
