Well as you know Ryanna will gain the ability to transform herself into a demon. Her first demon form will give her access to the element fire and this is what her portrait will look like while she's in this form. Later in the game she'll gain transformations for other elements and effects as well.

The transformations do not yet work, as I am still only working to get all artwork for this feature done, and then I'll go to actually implement stuff on this feature.... It's a feature to use with care as it doesn't only cost ability points to transform into a demon, it takes ability points to maintain the form as well. You can however transform her back into her human form whenever it's her turn to act, and at the end of each battle she'll turn back into her human form automatically.

Of course, Ryanna has no idea at all what enables her to transform and you could expect that this is gonna be revealed alter in the story.

Weekly Update

Well I wish I could say A LOT has been done, but there hasn't been done anything at all...

It was planned that I would take one week off in order to keep the rest in myself and the week after that, well....
Image

My situation got pretty bad....
Deep pain in my chest and belly caused me to call the doctor in the middle of the night who got herself into a panic sending an ambulance to me to check up if my heart was still in order...
Dang! Now I was not only ill, but also scared as crap!

Image

Well, rest assured folks, my heart is completely in order. Either I ate something wrong, or I just caught a virus or so. Medication lowered the pain and in stead of that I got couching and sneezing like crazy, so I guess that given the circumstances I deemed it a wise thing to postpone all activities on this game until I really felt better.

Today is the first day I actually feel like I can get on the move...
I've done some pre-work to get into Ryanna discovering her first transformation form now, and the next challenge will be to make the transformation itself happen. This ain't gonna be an easy process, but I hope I can give it my all.

Image

Now after this transformation thing works, I'm gonna start on implementing the first city and that will also be the moment that some alpha versions may be given out to a selected group of people. Please note, you will then get access to a game that is in a VERY EARLY state of development, so many feature will be very very buggy or not even be implemented at all.

The alpha will only be available on itch.io on a secret page I have there. Why itch.io and Game Jolt, you wonder (as it does feel like a bit of treason for me as a Game Jolt moderator), well itch.io allows me to easily keep the alpha up-to-date everyday, with a simple unix shell script thanks to the Butler tool, and as long as Game Jolt as no equivalent, all I can do is upload it manually, and since I intend to update the alpha every day (that is every day I actually WORKED on the game), an CLI tool is simply needed as through a browser upload it's just undoable. I must face facts here... Sorry!

Please note that when you sign up for being an alpha tester I do want you to take a look if there are issues I don't know about and put them on my issue tracker if you find any. And of course, don't discuss in the open what kind of story line plot-twists or in-game jokes you found, as we don't want spoilers before the game is even out, now do we?


If you are interested, you can just leave a reply and make sure I have a way I can contact you in private, like a PM on the LÖVE forum, or throw me a friend request on Game Jolt, or befriend me on Discord or whatever (I want to avoid e-mail), so I can once the alpha get 'released' throw you the url of the secret itch.io page plus its password.

Well I'm still working on the transformation routine.
This is one of the most complex things in the game to get working and my time to do actively work on the game has been minimal, adding to that that I am still not fully recovered from my illness yet, well you get the picture.

Nevertheless I am pleased to say that I *did* make progress in all this, although it comes with a lot of cockroaches (bugs that keep on bugging you even after 1000 fix attempts), but I never expected complex stuff like this to go right in one go. That would be a miracle.

For now transformation is working, although some workouts are still required here....

But see here, ladies and gentlemen....

Well, today I've finished putting in the achievement engine, and several achievements will be added to the game over time now. This was quite an operation, as quite a ton of bugs in the bot Anna were exposed during this process, but that's all fixed.

Speaking of Anna. Are you playing "The Fairy Tale REVAMPED"? Yes? Cool! Do you have an Anna account too? Super! It's even tight to your TFTREVAMP savegame? PERFECT!
The Fairy Tale REVAMPED has a secret location called "Anna's Temple" which can only be unlocked if the the answer to the previous questions I asked is all "yes". My bot Anna gives you rewards through that temple based on how well you played TFT-REVAMPED, but it doesn't end there. If you have big scores in Cynthia Johnson, you can also get more treasure there, and yes your achievements in Sixty-Three Fires of Lung will also contribute in having more treasure in that place. A similar location might be available in this game too, although that is not yet fully decided. (Psst. If you really did well you can even unlock a very very secret boss in Anna's Temple in TFTREVAMP, and yes, this game can contribute). Is Anna cool or what?

Of course if you have no interest in Anna, you can of course also directly connect to the Game Jolt API and register your achievements here. Won't get you the benefits Anna provides though.

I have also been working on the scenario coming after the first boss, and I hope I can finish that over the course of the weekend, so I can start on the first city of the game: Windville. This will also be the place were prince Nino will join you on your quest, and that can make the game even more interesting. Also, this is a parody game, and several parodies and references to other games and even stuff outside of the gaming world, so once the demo's out (which will cover Windville too), you can try to find them all, once you get there.
