Battle Gem Ponies (July DevLog): Aha! Now I see...

     Still chipping away at this project one day at a time. Real life hurdles still slowing me down and demotivating me, but even just looking at the roster of pony sprites on my phone throughout the day inspires me to keep pushing forward to make this thing real. Another devlog went up and I want the world to know about it.

Otherwise come get a brief summary of the game's progress below.

Battle Gem Ponies (June DevLog): A World Restored!

     Starting development on things I can actually show off with visuals! Tilemaps recovered from oblivion, and steps towards an explorable overworld, this time made with a lot more common sense and cleanliness. 

     Catch details on all that and more in this month's DevLog for the prototype of Battle Gem Ponies! (Get on the Patreon Hype Train for Exclusive Posts about the making, and remaking, of the game!)

Battle Gem Ponies May DevLog: Back to Basics!

     Met with some hiccups along the road to gamedev, but steps are being taken to assure the project moves forward. Many experiments were tried and failed in May but some worked out as well. The main takeaway is that when in doubt, I'm better off proceeding with what I know works, even if that means a few weeks of brute force manual coding & organizing assets. Full details are on the Patreon, progress is slow & steady, but the playable prototype is still priority #1.

(Warning: this gamedev stuff is not for the feint of heart, kids. Don't go for it unless you're CRAZY about this stuff!)
