170 - It's May Already...

Hello bros. It's your favorite provider of family friendly educational content with another Monday Post. 
Hm... There are roughly 52 weeks in a year. 170/52 = 3.2 years. So for 3+ years now I've been making a post each Monday, without missing a single one. That's wild 0_0
The life. Don't know what to say, life goes on. My health situation could've been better but it could've been worse too. I am back to working so I shouldn't complain. 
P.S. Jogging makes me feel really good, but it's making my knees and feet hurt -_-
The work. Re-writes are taking longer then expected. There is only one scene left though and after that I need to write a clever "Next Episode Preview" scene and I will be done with the writing stuff for this Ep. I think the main reason it's taking me this long is because of all the family friendly educational scenes. When it comes to scenes like that it's easy to make them boring and awkward, and to avoid that extra work in the brain department is usually required on my part -_-
The plan is to be done with ALL THE writing crap by Wednesday and after that finally get to finishing up the art assets. Thank you for your patience as usual.
That's it. Thank you for your support. ^_^

169 - Looks Like a "Yay".

Hi, guys. First of all big thanks for participating in the WT remaster discussion. There were quite a few comments, a lot of people shared their thoughts on Patreon, on my Discord and even here on SS. Second of it seems like the vast majority is all for (or at least wouldn't mind) a WT remaster.

That being said, many of you also said that WT remaster is not necessarily what they absolutely need, but if it's something I feel like working on I should do it. I hear you guys, and I appreciate the freedom you give me.
Now what? Well first I need to finish Ep12. After that hope to start working on a short fun project that I think you'll appreciate and if all goes well it shouldn't take me too long to finish and release. For now let's call it Project Janitor. And only after that is done I will be making the final decision about WT remaster. Well, that's the plan in any case.
The work. I was hoping to be done with the re-writes by the end of the week but alas it's Monday already and I am not done yet. Don't worry though, everything is under control. I'll just have to spend a few more days writing. (I am talking about SC34 Ep.12 of course, it's still my current and only project).
That's it. Don't have much to report otherwise. Again thank you for taking a part in the WT discussion. And thank you for the support of course. See you all next Monday :)
Hugs and kisses <3

P.S.
I used to have this game on my PSP. Loved this title screen so much T_T !

168 - WT HD Remaster. Yay or Nay?

First things first: let's talk about WT (since I did put it into the header and all).
Don't freak out please. This idea came to me out of nowhere and at this stage it's an idea only. One of many. While I am working on Ep12 I am contemplating a lot of stuff, most of it will forever remain only as an idea in my head.
But why? Here is the thing, original WT has a 800x600 resolution. That's a really small game screen. For example SC34 has a resolution of 1200x720 pxls, but even that is not that big for the modern device's crazy screen resolution. That being said, despite original WT being so tiny, I still have all the original development assets that are quite big in size and would easily allow for a 1200x720 remaster if not higher.
Yes, but why though? My train of thought is this: eventually back up HDD will crash, or something will happen to me (god forbid) and those high definition development assets will be lost forever, but if I update the game, you guys will replicate the thing all over the web and it will never be lost :)
Any changes? The idea is to keep EVERYTHING as it is, just in a higher resolution. I don't want to create any "Han shot first " moments. That being said, I would probably make a few small quality of live tweaks. For example make the fight with Snape a bit easier and a bit shorter. Also I would make it so that you could nurture the bird back to health, but that's about it.
This won't be easy. It may seem like all I would need to do is update the art assets, but it will be way more complicated than that. I will be basically rebuilding the entire game from scratch in a new resolution, defining new coordinates for every single screen, button and chibi animation.
One month? That being sad I think it shouldn't take me longer than one month to complete. But well all know that things tend to go wrong more often then not. Some unexpected problems may always resurface and extend the development time indefinitely...
Tell me the truth please. Don't worry about hurting my feeling or something. If you think that WT remaster will be a waste of my time - tell me exactly that. Most likely it indeed will be, since you will be getting the same (probably a decade old by now) game. I really want to know what you think though. Please share your opinion in the comment section below. (Or there is also discord.)
To other good news. My health has improved drastically during this week. I am still not 100% back to normal by any stretch, but few days ago I woke up and realized that my neck muscles don't hurt as much and that my joints don't pop that loudly anymore. At first I was worried that it was just a fluke but it's been days and I continue to feel quite OK ^_^
Video games. I feel good enough to be able to play video games again. I do it in moderation, but damn it feels good to be back. When all the hell broke lose I had to abandon my second playthrough or FE:Three Houses and had to watch it on YouTube because it was next back thing at the moment. That was depressing as heck. But it's all in the past, at least for now. Having controller in my hands again just feels so damn good!
The work. I've been playing it smart: special chair, cool new self-elevating desk (it finally got delivered), drinking plenty of water, going to gym, jogging and taking frequent breaks while working. Through out all that I managed to get a lot done during this week. Like a ton! I'm so happy! Basically I am done with the first draft of writing for ep12. During next week I will be doing re-writes and as soon as that is done I will be getting back to finishing art assets (many of the drawings are still on the inking stage, from 3 months ago).
What's next? I've been doing a lot of thinking. And I mean A LOT. I am still in the process of figuring out how I want to proceed with all the work related stuff. As it stands right now I will probably be taking a break from SC34 after ep12. As for the episode itself it won't have a cliffhanger at the end, but at the same time it won't feel like any sort of resolution has been reached. Sorry about that, the episode was concieved last year, a lot happened since then -_-. 
No seriously, what's next? Next I want to work on a new project. Something interactive and with a cozy feel of the WT to it. I have multiple projects that I am considering at the moment. The main idea though is to create something simple enough that I would be able to finish the entire thing in 3 months tops! I don't know how realistic that is, but even a 6 months development cycle sounds very depressing to me.  
Haven't made up my mind yet. Like I said, these are just thoughts, I haven't decided anything yet. Hell, I may even get to working on Ep13 as soon as Ep12 is finished, life is unpredictable that way. But for now I just want to know your thoughts on the whole WT Remaster thing. Please be truthful, if you feel like that is something you don't really need and you would rather have me work on something else make sure to say so.
Wow, this was a very long post, huh? Congratulations of reaching the end of the post! :) Not so long ago I made posts consisting of barely 5 to 7 words. Let's hope it will never happen again. It probably will, but we have the right to hope it won't!
Thank you for your support, thank you for not abandoning me during these three months of crappy crap that I had to deal with. Everything has a reason though, and this shake up really gave me a perspective on many things. There will be same changes both in my personal life and in the way I approach work, but I have a feeling you gonna love them. A lot of cool stuff is cooking in my head right now, you better believe it. ^_^
Love you all dearly.
Your fearless spiritual leader.

167 - A Proper Monday Post Again.


Hi guys. Another 7 days of our lives flew by so here I am with the weekly report.
I'm doing OK. Did plenty of writing during this week. To be honest I wish I could do more but being able to make any progress at all still feels great. 
As for my plans, like I said I want to finish Ep.12 properly, and after that we'll see... I am considering several options. I may continue with SC and move on to working on ep.13, or I could take a break from SC and work on Magic Shop (!?), or maybe something entirely different. 
As for my health, well it could've been worse I guess. Over these past 3 months I visited so many doctor, went through so many examinations and tests, and also consumed an insane amount of pills. But it all amounted to almost nothing. I do feel a bit better but considering how much money and time I spent on all the medical stuff, seeing so little result really get's on my nerves. So I decided to try a different approach: these days I pay attention to what I eat, I try to drink more water, go to gym, do yoga ect. Oh, and I also got into jogging again (feels great :). In other words I try to do a ton of healthy stuff hoping my body will figure out a way to fix itself. 
I still can't play much of videogames which really brings me down to be honest, but at least I can work again and that is the most important thing to me honestly. Now all I need to do is be smart and respect my body a bit more :)
In any case, I managed to write and publish two proper Monday Posts in a row now, so yay to that. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the support, let's hope the worst is behind us and I will be able to release Ep.12 (relatively) soon. Also I wish you all a good health and hope you are all doing well. Till next Monday, bros.

166 - An Actual Monday Post? Finally!

So... This will probably be a long one, so I hope you're ready :) Alright, let's do this thing. Monday Post #157!
The health. The current situation is as follows: I definitely do feel better ^_^. In fact I feel good enough not only to be able to write this post but also to get back to working again. That being said I am definitely not 100% back to normal. To be honest I am not sure if I will ever be at this point. But it's not nice to be greedy, recovering back to 90% at eventually would make me perfectly content with my life.
What did I do to heal? A lot of stuff: exercise, rest, diet, massages, vitamins, anti-inflammatory pills, ect. And now that I do start to feel better I really hope that it's the sum of the things and not just the pills... Because I'll have to stop taking those soon and  going back to how thing were would *really* suck.
Also I bought an orthopedic chair. It's green and weird. But at this point I am willing to try almost anything. I also ordered a desk with adjustable height, but it's taking forever to get here. (Seriously it's been a month T_T).
The IRL stuff. All sorts of things were making my life miserable lately, not just the health problems. At this point in time I did manage to solve some of them and just sort of came to terms with the rest. Life just goes on I guess... And don't get me wrong I am not out of the woods yet, but being able to work again really helps me to take mind off of things and feel more fulfilled and happy in general :)
The work. I spent big portion of this week working on the story for Ep12. Saying that it feels good to be back doesn't do it justice. It's doesn't just "feel good", it's more like my life has a meaning again. It probably sounds a bit depressing when I say it like that, sorry. What I mean is that what I do for a living really makes me happy. Thank you for making it possible, guys.
Episode 12. Currently I am back to working on the story. This episode will be a bit on an epic side :) Th little piggy storyline with Jasmine and Ashelin will be getting a proper continuation, also the Ahselin and Lara romance will be advancing quite a bit, not without the help of the MC of course. Usually I don't like to spoil stuff but I think I should give you at least something at this point. So yeah, Ep12 will include a lot of wholesome events ^_^ 
The thoughts. Over these months, while I continued to feel crappy I couldn't work and playing video games made my head hurt. In other words I had plenty of time to think and reflect on a lot of things. During that time I made some decisions concerning both my personal life and my work. I don't want to go into the details yet, but slowly some changes will come. Don't worry it will be changes for the better and I actually think you will welcome most of them with open arms. But for now that is all I will be saying. 
Witch Trainer. In case you didn't know, recently I uploaded WT to itch.io. Shortly after I got a few messages from people saying that they have problems lunching the apk file on their phones. I decided to test it myself, and it launched without a problem. And then... And then I spent an hour playing the game. Revisiting it after so many years felt wild. A whole rush of emotions and memories. It made me remember how much effort I put into swimmingly important things back then: the fire place fire animation, the outside weather effects, the animated chibis. Heh, back then I had plenty of time and health to burn through. Well in any case, revisiting WT made me also think some things, but I don't think it's time to talk about that yet :)
And I will be wraping things up here. Thank you for being with me during this weird and difficult times. Honestly as long as I have you I shouldn't worry about a thing. ^_^ Love you all.

P.S. The Gif is from Running From The Wind. Watching that anime reminded me how much I used to enjoy jogging ^^

156 - Is It Monday Already?

First of all does anyone know who is the author of the pic above is? If I am not mistaken Ace sent me this pic quite some time ago, he commissioned it from somebody. I dunno, going through my old files I stumbled on this one and suddenly realized how much I love everything about it. (Just in case, the full version will be in the attachment).

And no, that pic is not supposed to be a promo or anything, it's simply a picture of me and Smersh. It's juts very well done and I didn't even ask for it, it was such a nice surprise. Thank you Ace. (Yes, I know it's been literally  years since you sent it to me :)
To other news Subverse seem to have had a rather successful launch. That's a good thing for sure. Although I am obviously not gonna play it for several reasons. But still it's nice to see it succeed.
WT is not on ITCH. So yeah, since my website will be going doing soon I decided to finally upload the original version there for everyone's convenience. 
The health stuff. I did manage to solve some of the problems, the majority persists though. But humans are very adaptive creatures so I am learning to sort of live with it for the time being at least. Sorry about the last week's post. It was one day when I felt very bad and it happened to be Monday -_-
The other IRL stuff. *Sigh* I don't wanna talk about it... -_- But I'm gonna say this: taking a break from work for a short while is actually great because it gives you some perspective, but at this point I just want to get back to work more then anything. Hopefully next week I will be able to share some actual news about the next episode.
And I think I'll leave it at that for now. Thank you for your support guys. Don't worry this is only a temporary setbacks. I can't see myself doing anything else with my life so I will definitely will be back one way or another.

Also thank you for all the Get Well wishes in the comments, emails and discord messages. Sorry I could not reply to all of them -_-
OK. Time to wrap this up. Hugs and kisses and all that. I'll see you all next week :)

164 - *Boop* Vol.2 

This is ridiculous, I know. But it's all I can muster at the moment. There were a couple good days, but today is just not that. Sorry. I still hope to be back soon.

P.S. I nuked my website. It will stop existing completely in a couple of weeks. I know it sucks, but hey, it's just a website. As long as I am still around and doing well I can always create another one. 

In any case, sorry about all this. Naturally if not for Monday Post thing I could just go quiet for a few months, like so many other creators did in the past, but somehow it would feel even more depressing I think. I will continue to Make Monday posts if I can help it.

163 - The Monday Posts Must Go On.

Yeah, another Monday Post. I hope you're ready. Can't say I have any particularly good news to share, but it's Monday and we all know what that means.
A lot of things happening today that require my attention, so I am writing this in a hurry and I hope you will forgive me if this post will end up being not as refined and sophisticated as usual :)
To keep things short: a lot of stuff is going on right now. My health is still on top of the list, but I am working on it and feel like I am doing all I can for the moment, I just need to wait a bit to see the results. But my health stuff is only one of many things... A lot of other crappy stuff has been going in almost literally every aspect of my life lately. Some I won't even mention for now since it would need context and a lot of explanation first.
To sum it up, a lot of troublesome and problematic stuff is filling my life right now. But among all this, two things happened:
Thing number one: I received a lot of messages and comments with words of encouragement and it honestly made a huge difference where my mood is concerned. And among that I even had a few conversations with people on discord and through emails who offered help with coding and other stuff. I don't think I can use any help in that regard right now, but it was still nice. I also had a talk with BadSpider. Did you guys know that he's been working standing up for the past 11+ months?! His story really impacted me. Frist of all it was an interesting idea (to draw standing up) and I was astonished that I never thought of it myself. Working standing up is not a perfect solution, but it's better then nothing. Second off all I found his story very inspirational because when last year I had problems with my butt nerves and could not sit properly I got really depressed, I  tried to work lying down, but mostly I've been just whining a lot until it was healed. BadSpider on the other hand just continued to work like a boss, and it really made me reconsider my outlook on some things.
Thing number two. It dawned on me that all the problems and troubles that are happening to me right now did not JUST happen. It was a project in the making for many years. For the most part this is a result of the way I lived my life, the way I treated my work, my body, my mind, my dreams and such. This is basically a signal for me to make some changes or that will be then of it.
That being said, I have nothing to report yet. Sorry. Honestly a lot of unpleasant crap going on and trying to solve and resolve it takes all my energy... 
I love you all dearly. Thank you for your patience and support. And sorry for not going into too many details for the time being. I will be back, I promise. For now though I need to figure things out since I'm the only one who can do it.

162 - Let's Recap.

So, here is the thing, I finally have some news.
First let me tell you that I don't feel better at all. But I did sort of learn to adapt to my current condition a bit. For example while I am typing this I have a timer near me that makes a sound every 15 minutes. When that happens I take a short break to stretch my muscles or just do some chores around the house for 10 minutes or so. Taking these frequent breaks allows me to use the PC without having to suffer through headaches. And of course I only use my PC like for an hour a day, tops during morning hours only when I usually feel my best.

During this past several weeks I went to all kinds of doctors and "enjoyed" all sorts of examinations. ENT doctor decided to do some cleaning procedures with my glands just in case. That wasn't fun. 
Gastroenterologist graced me with blood tests, ultrasounds and a Gastroscopy (which if you don't know what that is I am happy for you, I truly am).
There were a few other doctors too. Naturally all sorts of minor problems have been discovered but nothing too major. 
Eventually though I did a neck area MRI and the results have shown all sorts of "fun" things that weren't there two years ago: multiple disk protrusions and extrusions and such. (This is basically a final stage before you get a hernia.) It is safe to assume that that is exactly what is causing the pains in my head and neck and makes my life so very miserable these days. 
Now I will be seeing a few more doctors, taking more pills and maybe even some injections again. Bust the most important part will, most likely, be physical rehabilitation in a form of all sorts of exercises.
Now to main question: how the heck it came to this? I'm not 100% sure myself to be honest. But if I were to guess the main reason was probably the stress. It was a crappy year for everyone, me included. I actually lost my grandfather. I never mentioned it, but it hit me super hard since the man was basically like a father to me and he passed in a very messy way in a different city and I wasn't even been able to attend his funeral. It was just one of many many things... I don't want to whine too much since we all went through some stuff during last year.

And reason number two for me was probably the closure of all the gyms during the pandemic in my city. So for about 6 months I've been sitting at home, working on my pc and playing video games without any exercise. Well I did try doing like some yoga and some exercise videos, but I don't think it was nearly enough, considering how much time I've been spending hunched over my desk.

Around new years holidays I started to feel back and neck pains, so I decided to start attending gym again, but I am guessing it was too little too late. These problems build up over prolonged periods of time, and you can't solve them with a few weeks of regular workouts.
Well that's my guess anyway. My poor stress management skills and the lack of exercise. Oh and I always had minor neck problems, so I guess it makes sense for the weakest spot to give way first. Oops, another 15 minutes just flew by. I will be back in 10 minutes...

I'm back! Wow, this is becoming a rather long post. Everyone loves to talk about their own problems I guess. But I think I better wrap things up here. I just wanted to give you an update on the current state of things.
But you know what is the worst part for me personally? I can't enjoy video games anymore. Like at all. I don't know why, but 10 minutes of any game and I start to feel a headache approaching. I tried changing positions, holding the controller differently, it's no use. I think video games demand too much attention, neck muscles stiffen and pain comes. Thankfully I can still watch videos on youtube if I don't forget to look away from the screen now and then. So these days I entertain myself by watching Let's Plays. It does work as a substitute to actually playing a game to some extent... Sigh... This is pathetic. Hopefully it will only be getting better from here on out...

Sorry for dumping all this on you. And thank you for reading. Time to wrap things up for real, I already spent too much time in front of the screen.

Love you all. Thank you for sticking with me through this. Maybe when all this will be over I will record a video talking about all this in length or something. In any case, I'll see you all next week ^^

160 - Officially on Haitus.

I guess it is time to finally face reality. I did consider stopping posting Monday Posts but that would be even more depressing. So if I can I hope to continue to make a post every Monday, even if it's a just an empty *boop*.

I was away from the internet all this time. Not my fault. My health problems persist and I continue to look for a solution. I am trying a lot of different things, taking a lot of different pills and even get some stuff injected into my buttocks now. All in all doing my best, but so far it amounted pretty much to nothing. I will keep you updated.
Next ep got stuck in a half finished state: half-done art assets, half-finished story pieces. That being said this is a very well planned out episode and I really hope I will be able to finish it because it was supposed to be "the best one yet". I don't like spoiling things, but since situation is so unusual, I'll tell you: I hope to show the exterior of the Placeholder for the first time ever in this one. Here is only one of the sketches I commissioned form a very good artist.
 

That is all. Sorry... Stuff is out of my hands and I am doing my best... Love you all.
Thank you for your patience. You are the best.

159 - When It Rains It Pours.

Well, I continue to have health problems. It became so annoying that I don't even want to talk about it right now. Also some other bothersome things are happening in my life right now. I can't work right now, can't do much of anything really, all I can do is dodge and deflect the incoming nuisances... 
It was an absolutely horrible string of Monday Posts, I know. But at this point I am kind of starting to get worried whether or not I will be able to resolve this at all. Maybe I am being a bit overly dramatic, but I'm just starting to feel a bit of a fatigue from all this... Don't worry this is not a cry for help or anything, you guys are great and over the years did for me more then I could ever hope for. This is all up to me now. I'll try to figure this out or go down trying I guess.

In any case  I will need to write a long post or maybe record a video and talk in length about EVERYTHING. But not today.

Also ignore any weirdness that may (or may not) be happening to this page during this time.

That's about it. I hope I didn't scare you too much. I just always tried to be honest both with my work and with my thoughts on things when I talk to you guys... I don't know, maybe I am just a big crybaby... We will see how things turn out.
Love you all.

158 - Still Here.

Alright, first things first: I got locked out of my patreon account. It's not a big deal actually, it happens about every 3 months or so, their system marks my email as spam and until tech support does something about it, I am powerless. I contacted them on Friday but there was no reply as of yet. There is no need to worry though, like I said, this happened many times before.

The downside is obviously is that I won't be able to publish this Monday Post on time there, but that is exactly why I have SubsribeStar - my precious safety cushion ^_^

That being said, I have very little news for you. During this week I was still very busy taking care of my health and sadly I am not completely out of the woods yet -_-

I did manage get some work done, and I have some rather big ideas and plans for the future. Like really big stuff, but that will have to wait until things get back to normal for me.

Thank you for your support and patience, guys. You are the best.

157 - Something.

Alright, with that out of the way, welcome to another Monday post!
First of all thank you for all the "get well" wishes and for being super chill about me making very little progress over these past few weeks. Not gonna lie - January sucked ass. I am very hopeful about Fabruary though. I think at the very list it won't be as bad as January was (for me).  
I'll keep this post short and low on details. But I'll say that I do feel better both mentally and physically. Thank you for your support guys. I always say you are the best but during moments like this I actually experience it and it makes me all warm and fuzzy inside. ^_^ No, seriously. 
See you all next Monday.

156 - NOTHING.


Hi. I have nothing to report. I know it's is lame, but I can't help it, at least for now. It was a decent enough week I did some writing but that's about it. I also continue to do things like taking swimming lessons, going to massage therapist and taking vitamins and such. I'm doing OK. Not much better to be honest but definitely not worse ^_^

Thank you for all the comments in the previous Monday Post. You guys are super cool and I appreciate it. 

I'll see you all next week.

155 - Monday Post #155.


Hi, guys. I'll just get right to it: I don't have much to brag about progress-wise, and there two reasons for that. 
Reason#1: I am working on the writing so naturally it's usually the most quiet phase of the process when I can't really give you any exciting updates. 
Reason#2: my ongoing health problems. I hoped to avoid talking about this but it's been going on for three weeks now and at this point I need to at least acknowledge it since it does affect my ability to be productive.
So, the health stuff. I'm sure some of you remember "my butt hurts so much I can't sit on it" phase of my life. It was quite some time a go and took me several month of suffering before it went away. This time around it's my neck (and back and head). I always had problems with my neck but recently it got much worse. I can't look at a computer (or SWITCH's) screen for longer then 20 min. or so before getting a headache. But the worst part is it's so bad this time that it even affects my eyesight now: I developed hyperopia (Farsightedness) and I am not even 40 years old yet.

I went to see the doctor, but all she did was tell me to take vitamins and rest a lot. The thing is I can force my body to do nothing, but I can't really tell my muscles to relax (or my mind to stop to worry). The bottom line is I worry too much about everything and now it made my neck muscles so stiff it hurts the blood vessels and that causes horrible headaches and eyesight problems.

Naturally fixing this issue takes all my attention now and also makes it hard to concentrate on the work. What I am doing right now is making sure I go to gym 3 times a week (before I would often skip one or two days), I go to a message therapist for1 hour sessions 3 times a week. And also I take personal swimming training sessions (I can't swim but, but swimming is great to keeping back and mind healthy). I am also taking a lot of vitamin B and some muscle relaxants.
So far I feel no effects of any of that. The worst part I need to figure out a way to stop worrying so much. I feel like an idiot because I am basically making myself hurt by worrying too much about my work, my life and such... And at the same time since I worry too much, it makes my life worse and makes me worry even more... It's a cycle of stupidity...

I am sorry to take so much of your time with all this whining, but like I said, this idiocy affects my productivity, and it's been 3 weeks so I feel like avoiding talking about this would be like lying and saying that things are great when that is not exactly the case.
 
Fantasy Tavern Sextet -Vol.2 Adventurer's Days- is finally out. I've been really looking forward to playing through the second Vol.2 of this harem kinetic novel, but I didn't even purchase it yet since I can't play it right now since looking at the screen makes my head hurt...
 
Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town. I will be picking up Japanese version since it drops a month earlier and I simply can't wait. I am so hyped for this game it's insane. I need it! I could never get into Animal Crossing but I feel like this one will be just right for me. Hopefully my body will be back in working order by the end of the February, but if not I will probably be just taking painkilers and play this game anyway.

That's about it for the news. I hope I didn't spoil your mood too much with my whining. I had to talk about this, I was starting to feel like I'm hiding things from you or something. Now you are up to date and know everything. Hopefully next post will be less depressing.
Time to turn off my laptop. My head is starting to hurt again -_- I am sorry for being such an idiot, I need to learn to relax and take things slow once in a while, this is getting pathetic. 
Thank you for your support and understanding. Love you all -_-
P.S. April lost her job in the previous episode but she remains cheerful. I need to take and example form her ^_^ See you all next week :)

154 - Empty Post The Sequel?

Hello, bros.
How is year 2021 is treating you so far? It's January 11th, finally. Honestly I can't wait to leave the holidays behind. All I need is my usual mundane life and an ability to work on my silly projects... That's all I need -_-

The life. I'm dealing with some health related issues at the moment so can't work as much as I wish I could. Hell, I didn't even touch my Switch for 4 days, now THAT is really sad. But it's nothing I can't handle, just time consuming stuff, that's all... 
The work. Working on the story of episode 12. It's going to be pretty epic. At first I though to take a break form the main story and after the space fight scene in the previous episode dedicate this episode entirely to family friendly content. But I changed my mind, Ep12 will contain both family friendly content and main story developments. Should be fun.
I love you all dearly guys. I am not just saying it. Looking back at my life I acutely realize that what I do for a living has long become the purpose of my existence. Thank you for support. Thank you for giving me an opportunity to do what I do. Here is to the bright future. (It's fucking better be bright... It's fucking better... -_- )

152 - Business As Usual.

Hello, bros. You should be relieved to know that your ever-wise patriarch Akabur is still alive and well. All thanks to your unwavering vigilance of course. Thank you financing my everything. Also year 2020 is almost over. We need to survive only few more days!
The Games. Finished Age of Calamity, secret ending made me cry manly tears. 
The Games 2. Continue to play Persona5 Scramble. Progress is slow. Japanese is difficult.
The Work. Still not done with art assets. Will be drawing through this week as well. -_-
That's it. No news is a good thing. All is well on my end, nothing to report. I hope you guys are enjoying your holidays and vacations an all that.
No seriously, that's it. See you next year.

151 - Poll Results.
Well this was a surprise. Apparently the majority of you don't mind the public stuff at all. Oh, almost forgot: welcome to the Monday Post - the safest space on planet earth!
The Results. Both Patrons-Only and Public polls show pretty much the same result: only about 12% of people are strongly against the public stuff. That's a very good result. Way better then I expected. Opens up some interesting possibilities :)

Also, thank you for all the comments, my SubscribeStar bros :)
Worry not though. Like I said last Monday I don't plan to make any drastic changes in the way SC34 is being told. For now I will stick to the "private route" only as always. And if I do include any "public" content I will make sure to make it optional or skipable. 
That being said, it's good to know that the majority of you is totally fine with more hardcore stuff because that is definitely something I would like to explore eventually.
 
The games. I am 50 hours+  in the Age of Calamity. Having a lot of fun. I never played a (Musou) warriors game before, had no idea they were this addicting. Also I really enjoy the story of AoC, way more than I thought I would. ^_^
P5S. Making some progress. Loving my time with the game, but Age of Calamity is taking the priory at the moment.
FAST RMX. This game was in my wishlist since the dawn of time. Supposedly it's very good. I don't have the time to play it right now, but it just went on sale with a 50% off, I have got to pick it up.
Fantasy Tavern Sextet -Vol.2. It has been finally announced and drops in January. I will be picking it up for sure since I really enjoyed the first one ^_^
And finally the work. This was a good week. I managed to get a lot of stuff done. Only one major CG is left. I hope to be done with it by next Monday. ^_^ This ep will have more art assets then any of the previous ones.  I think you gonna enjoy it a lot. Thank you for your support and your trust in me, bros.
That's it. Thank you for taking part in the poll. I hope you are doing well and I'll see you all next week. Oh and Merry Christmas and all that :)

150 - Monday Poll. 

Hello, dudes. How is life? Amazing and great I hope? Year 2020 is coming to an end. What a horrible fucking year this was... But hey, you never know, year 2021 could be even worse. And on this optimistic note, let us begin! ^^
The work. This was an a good week. I managed to get plenty of stuff done. Still working on the art assets. Still have a lot to do. Ep.12's story will be the stuff of legends: multiple characters and story arcs will be getting long awaited development.
"LoveKami -Divinity Stage-". Randomly and abruptly, let's talk games... I must say this freaking game has some really obnoxiously sexy CGs. No, seriously I can't believe I actually legally bought it on E-Shop. This fact alone is a good reason for me to worship goddess big N. 
Age Of Calamity. 35+ hours in. The story got seriously epic. Love it! Also LOVE the music! "Chapter 6: Relentless as a Waterfall" (Akalla citadel fight), when you enter a battle and the choirs starts... damn... I replayed that mission three times already simply because it makes me feel like such a BOSS!
P5S: The Phantom Strikers. Played for about 4 hours. The progress is slow, since I have to consult the dictionary a lot. As for the game itself - it's absolutely fantastic, as expected :)

The Poll. Now let's talk business. I have a serious question to ask you all. The question is as follows...
THE QUESTION: How do you feel about "public routes" in the story? Let me elaborate. Up until now I was very careful with SC34's happenings to make sure that the only male character interacting with the girls (in a family friendly manner) is Genie. I don't mind continuing to handle the story that way, but at the same time this restriction limits the amount of fun stuff we could use the girls for. For example it could be interesting letting the turtles go all the way with April, or maybe taking Jasmine to a homeless shelter to cheer up the underprivileged citizens of Agrabah. But I can't do stuff like that because I know it will rub some people the wrong way. So the question is this: what's your opinion on sharing a girl for greater H-Energy gains?
P.S. Keep in mind that I plan to stay the same course with SC34 no matter the outcome of the poll. Nothing will change. For now I just want to know the opinion of the majority. And maybe have a small discussion, but that's it.

SUBSCRIBESTAR: Since I don't have that many supporters here, you guys can just let me know your opinion on this in the comments bellow. 
End of the post. Hugs and kisses. See you next week. (Now go cast your vote).

149 - Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers.

https://youtu.be/5k6VGLweBqk

Greetings, cherished allies. Welcome to the safest place on the entire site: Akabur's Monday Posts! Make yourself comfortable, pour yourself a glass of milk and let the family friendly content I provide wash over you.
P5S (English Version) will be dropping on Switch in February. Freaking finally! Only took them a year to translate--... *Khem* I mean, localize it. I've been planing to give Japanese version a try for a while now, and as soon as the rumors about the English version begun to spread I knew the time for waiting was over. It was time for ACTING! What I mean is, I had to buy this game before English version is made available, while I still have no choice but to play it in Japanese. (Still have a reason to play it in Japanese basically). With my current weaboo and a help of a dictionary I should be able to understand about 60%-80% of the story. I may even learn a new kanji or two. Wish me luck.
 
The work. Well, things are definitely moving along. Ep. 12's story arc will revolve around quite a few crew members so there will be a lot of characters growth. It will also be a bit on a lengthy side but there is no way around it if I want for everyone to stay in character. 
The games. I am 20+ hours into the Age of Calamity, having a lot of fun, very addictive game. ^_^ But now I also have P5S and many other games on my backlog just waiting their turn... I only have about 2 to 3 hours per day to play those games, so I can barely keep up with all the games Nintendo keeps throwing at me -_-
The week. This was a very productive week, apart from the Sunday. The Sunday was weird. One of those days when you just sort of slog though and even simple tasks feel like an uphill battle. Just one of those days I guess. But hey, I made it. What a damn hero I am.
That's it. Thank you for your support, guys. Stay safe during this week. And I'll see you all next Monday. Hugs and kisses.

148 - Proof of Life Post.


Well it's Monday and you know what that means... By the by, how is everyone doing? Well if you have the strength to read this post it couldn't be THAT bad, I guess...
Work. This week I suddenly realized that I have no idea how the back of Ashelin's jacket looks like. After considering it for a bit I wen't with a somewhat obvious design, but now I'm thinking that since this is her "working girl" outfit maybe it should have something a bit more exciting written there, like "First (B)(J) is free" or something.
Oh wow. After I wrote "First (B)(J) is free" in the paragraph above this warning popped up. I wonder if this means I can't even mention things like that anymore in written form. It's so heartwarming to see Big Bro Patreon caring so much about us and trying to shield us from harmful content. I don't know about you but I feel safer already.
SubscribeStar. Thankfully I don't need to self-sensor myself here. First blowjob is free! Dick! Pussy! Big Tits! Hot Steamy Sex! ...Freedom ^^
All in all. This week was a bust. Just one of those weeks I guess... I had some plans work-wise but a big portion of them just didn't work out. I did manage to get some work done, but I wish I did more... Stupid real world with it's pandemic and other nonsense...
I think I'll just warp it up here. Life goes on... Next Monday Post will be way more informative. Maybe. Thank you for your support during these weird-ass times. Take a good care of yourself, bros. And I'll see you all next week.

147 - Amiibo, loveKami and Work.

Monday Post #147. Hello and welcome. Akabur - the main provider of the safe, comfortable content that tweeter users love so much. If there was a rating system for these type of posts, mine would be rated E - For Everyone. Just like the latest Fitness Boxing game.
First things first: the major development of the week (not in a general sense but for me personally), Nintendo has bent the knee and got rid of the breasts physics in the second Boxing Fitness game. I am glad I was able to notice that in time to cancel my pre-ordered. After that I took the money and ordered the first game instead. I feel a bit better now, but the whole experience left a bitter taste in my mouth. What the hell Nintendo?
The Vid. Did you watch my latest unboxing video by the way? I have 4 Amiibo figurines now. Truly my life has reached it's pinnacle. Thank you guys. (No seriously, thank you).
Age of Calamity. The delivery of my copy of the game is scheduled for today so if all goes well I will be spending some quality time with princess tight pants this evening. Really looking forward to that. ^_^
To other news. "LoveKami -Divinity Stage-" has a release date now and I've already pre-ordered it. Yes, yes I know, in our day and age only complete degenerates still do pre-orders. But that's exactly who I am! Wait, no... I meant to say, that's OK to pre-order visual novels that's been around for quite some times now. I mean what they gonna do? Censor CGs with god rays or something? Ha-ha-ha! Don't make me laugh! (Nintendo, please don't.)
The work. Man, it was such a great week work-wise. For once I had little to no distractions. No health stuff, no any other nonsense, it was work-work-work, and it made me really happy, making progress on a project always feels nice ^_^ Next episode will feature some major character growth for several girls but it's needs to be done right. I will probably share a bit more info next week, but for now let's just stop here :) 
And that's it for this week's Monday Post. Thank you for sustaining my weird-ass lifestyle. Love you all. Ep12 is gonna relief your stress to hell and back. You've been warned :)

146 - Sorry, But Fantasy Tavern Sextet.

Hi, guys. Welcome to another Monday Post. For 146 weeks I've been making these posts without skipping a single one. I've done so much for educating the unwashed masses. I wasn't alone of course -- your support helped. But do you even remember the times before Akabur? Back then men didn't know how to be men, women didn't know how to be women, PlayStation was still a good console, truly dark times. It is all behind us now but what I would like to know is: where is my noble prize?

This week wasn't the best one for me since on Tuesday I caught a nasty cold and spent the following days experiencing all sort of annoying discomforts. (While wondering whether it was indeed only a cold or something a bit more sinister.) I feel much better now but not 100% back to normal yet. The worst part about all this is that it's really hard to stay productive when you're feeling like crap so I wasn't able to make much progress on the Ep. Did some planning and a few pencil drawings and that's about it.
The games. Well this week's star was Fantasy Tavern Sextet. It's Qureate game so the art was of a godly tier as usual. As for the story, well... this is a harem game. And I had no idea. I was going after one girl (Daisy) thinking this game has multiple routes for different girls, then the romance route started and then... another girl came onto me. Seeing both girls and the protagonist react to that development was a lot of fun. And it wasn't even cringy or anything, props to the writer, seriously. 
Sextet means six people in a band. I realized that way too late. There are 6 girls in the game so you get the idea. This is Vol.1 so you only get 2 girls but honestly this game was a lot of fun for me personally. Also the ending was (FREAKING) epic. Can't wait for Vol.2.
Age Of Calamity. I pre-ordered (I played the DEMO so it's OK) the physical version so I will be getting the game with a few days delay. Hyped.
Breath of The Wild. I finally unlocked the bike (at 110 hours). I like how you even have to fuel it from time to time: let's me leave out my biker fantasies. So yeah, I'm almost done. The plan now is to take my bike and ride it to the Hyrule castle and freaking annihilate Ganon. 
That's about it. My throat is still sore and it annoys me way more then it should. But I'll manage, whining is for pussies. Thank you for your support bros. Love you all.
