Ashura...? Oh.
Hey, just wondering, did you get liner notes in the DVD case in your Cybersix DVD? If so, is there any chance you could take a pic of them? My copy didn't come with the liner notes even though the DVD case says there should be some. Thanks!

strangestquiet:

Ahhh I didn’t, sorry! :( I didn’t even know anything was supposed to be in it. That sucks…

Sorry to be confusing, but the liner notes are audio. They’re on the DVD themself in the form of audio commentary by me. So you can hear my boring butt talk about the history of Cybersix!

Okay, that variant made me laugh!

I don’t usually dig this meme but yeah, this made me laugh too.  G Gundam.

Also, how was I not following Jeff?! My brother!

Hey! I abandoned the internet to make new comics. I hope you’ll forgive me with this SIX PAGE PREVIEW of my newest comic, Munchies! I’m moving over to Storenvy, and you can get the whole comic there. The physical comics are printed with red and purple ink on a risograph and turned out extra awesome, if I do say so myself~!

Hey my friend Katie has this cool new comic. Check it out.

Hi Lupin the Third: The Castle of Cagliostro fans. Want to help us choose the disc designs for the DVD + Blu-Ray? We’re working on the Cagliostro packaging, and we’re running a poll to see which disc designs you like better. We’ve got a few different options which all use the rings from Castle of Cagliostro as their basis.

The only thing we know for sure about the color ones is that the blue one has to be the Blu-Ray, d’uh. But we want to know your opinion on which ones you like better!

Please take a moment and vote here:

So, on the Cybersix DVD, two of the episodes have “Linear Notes” commentary tracks by Brady Hartel who did not work on Cybersix but does work for Discotek Media and was heavily involved with getting the set produced. The notes are basically him sharing extensive research he’s done into the…

All true!

Hooray! Lovely Little Thieves has arrived!
Download the demo here and play away! I know it still needs work, so please send feedback to the tumblr here so we can work away at making the game the best it can possibly be. :D
So, that’s the good news. The bad news is this just the first half of the free demo. So, 1 hour of gameplay instead of 2, and 15 choices instead of 40. 
What? Why?
Because ren’py hates me, that’s why. Specifically, it hates the way I decided to branch the journey up the hill to the mansion. Sometimes it’ll work and sometimes it won’t, so I’m re-arranging scenes and variables to make sure those scenes run without crashing no matter what choices you’ve made to get to them. (One of the downfalls of a choice-heavy game, I guess.)
It was hours more work, so I had two options: put a disclaimer *in the game* that said we were skipping about a third of the game to arrive at the mansion at the end, where the game stops having crash problems, or just have the demo end (temporarily) before the scenes with crash problems. I chose the latter so as not to take people out of the story/avoid any issues.
BUT COME HELL OR HIGH WATER THIS WAS GOING UP *TODAY* LIKE I SAID IT WOULD BE! @_@ I’m on track to fixing all the bugs in the second half by this Friday the 12th, so then I’ll edit the file with the second half, along with any bug fixes you might run into.
Thank you all once again for being so supportive and please enjoy this first little step into the story of Lovely Little Thieves. :)

Lovely Little Thieves Trailer!

I know I said the next update on this tumblr would be the completed demo, but I lost two of the days over the weekend I was going to use to complete it, so it’s just a couple more days off yet. It’s sitting at about 25,000 words and around 40 choices, so by “demo” standards, you’re getting a lot of VN. Thank you for being so patient!

This is a special update though. The trailer for the game is now finished! It was edited by myself and my friend Josh Brumfield (krosswerks.) Enjoy and pass it around! The demo is right around the corner…

My friend Hope is working on a really cool, 80s inspired visual novel. You should check it out and support it!

Vintage 1983 Cliff Hanger promotional flyer. Cliff Hanger was a game created by Stern electronics in the vein of Dragon’s Lair that utilized footage from The Castle of Cagliostro and The Mystery of Mamo. This was the original artwork they created for this release! An interesting bit of Cagliostro history…
