Battle Gem Ponies DevLog #27 (Back in the Crunch, Unicorn Training on iOS)

     With BronyCon fast approaching some extra cuts need to be made. The demo is going to have a few less things than I wanted, but the core battle experience and overworld wandering are must haves that will be present. I need to have a proof of concept to show that this game is a real thing that's actually coming. Way too much is at stake here to have a lousy first impression.

     Unicorn Training is now out in the world and I'm checking sales every day to see if it can boom in popularity just once. If this results in little to no increase from the usual $30 a month, it could take me exactly a year to become Yotes Games LLC (just barely in time for BGP's release).

Adventures in Equica: Unicorn Training [Now Available on iOS!]

     The day has finally come! Unicorn Training is available for iOS devices! For just $1 you get 9 action-packed dungeons and a monster-filled forest overworld to explore! Level up and learn magical spells to blast away any evil creatures that stand in your path to greatness!

     It feels great to finally have my first real game out there for everyone to try. Fans of ponies and action RPGs in general will certainly be getting their money's worth. If you want to try before you buy, a free demo version is available with the entire first dungeon and boss fight. Every download goes toward making my next game even better, so be sure to leave a review and tell me what you think. This is just the beginning of a wonderful series.

The Android versions are also available on Amazon and Google Play.

Battle Gem Ponies DevLog #26 (Post E3, Post Big Move, Still Exhausted)

     Literally nothing got done this week gamedev-wise. All week I've been building furniture, carrying heavy objects, doing shopping trips, and general errands for my parents to help them settle into their new house in Florida. Silly me thought this would take up 7 days max and only 4 would be spent away from my own work. Never have I been so wrong.

     The thought of not being ready for BronyCon is depressing, but if that means cutting off a couple more hours of sleep each night to just barely make it, then that's what I'll have to do. Battle Gem Ponies going well is the only way I can move out to get a place of my own (where I can concentrate more on development). Believe me when I say, I want nothing more than that freedom.

New Florida Workstation & BronyCon CHAOS!!!

     So I finally made it to my new workplace in the sunshine state. I know, there's no chair, but I'll get one later. Many things were lost in the move, but Battle Gem Ponies wasn't one of them. Now That I'm (nearly) settled in I can get back to work on the demo for BronyCon! Speaking of which...

     I'm in trouble. The day I moved out I got the panel followup message I've been waiting months for. Sadly I had no internet access until just yesterday and ended up missing a big deadline. Hopefully everything works out but if not, I just lost the opportunity of a lifetime.

A form was due on the 15th and somehow I didn't get the message I've been searching for every morning and night.
Really hope there's forgiveness for unfortunate circumstances.
