    Ossu! Comin' up at y'alls with another sweet dream!



    This go about we're having a look at Splatty's Adventure v0.5.8 by RDKatrell22, pbgamer96, NiloFranck, and SoInDiverse. The too-long/didn't-watch is this is a decent enough 3d platforming collect-a-thon that pretty clearly shows it's early access rough edges. The base gameplay is fun enough, though i think it could be scaffolded a bit better. Really polish and expansion is probably the direction to go in to make this one a stronger showing (especially in the camera department); though for what i got to see, i did have a good time with it. Very reminiscent of Mario 64. Give it a play if you haven't yet, or even if you have. The creator's seem to be pretty on top of updates, so it might be different from what you experienced before.

    Thanks, as always, for all the feedback, and have a great day!

      And we're back!

      No, i know it's been a bit, there's just a lot that's been going on. i realize i didn't get the update post for episode 047 in, so let's start there.



      ROOT by GK-S- is a pretty solid fantasy-adventure that follows a young faerie girl on the first leg of her journey to... i don't remember exactly what right at the moment. Environmental design is well-handled, if a little Dreams Fantasy-standard; and the character models are really quite nice. The fight system is relatively decent, though the lack of a fixed camera can make the boss battles a touch more of a trial than entirely necessary. Still, worth a bit of time investment to sit down with.

      Now, for episode 048!



      This one, we're having a look at Beat Blaster by Benji_Dixon. This one has got a good concept behind it, a twin-stick shooter with enemies and effects influenced by the beat of the BGM. i don't think it quite manages to pull it off though. The wideness of the playing field means you can keep the enemies largely off-screen, which is safe, but undercuts the conceit pretty badly. It's also just got the one stage going for it at the moment, and that's over in about two-and-a-half minutes. It's short enough to be worth the time investment, but i would've liked to have seen a little bit more. Hopefully Benji will continue to expand on this one.

      Thanks, as always, for all the support and feedback, and have a great day!

      Missing the post for 047 was just life being regular busy. i've got this narrow frame for getting it up on time, and if that passes, it's up to how shagged out i am in the following week, and that week was an awful lot.

      Now last week, though, was pretty double-fudge crap. So... i've been operating under the assumption that i'd be going back to the US (a prospect that filled me with no small amount of dread) in August to get my paperwork done and have my name/gender legally recognized. There was a part of me that knew it wasn't going to be simple-simple, at least not as much as the NYS website let on, but... Well, anyway, i was talking with my folks that Sunday morning (my main day for recording), they've been doing some of the on-the-ground info gathering for me, since i'm basically for shite at finding things online. They'd been told by people at a support group that getting the doctor's form for the actual change could take up to a year of psychiatric consultations.

      So, when i heard that, i pretty much BSoD'ed. i mean, the idea of being in the US for a couple of weeks had my anxiety bumpin' and jumpin', but a year? At least? It was all just a touch too much. Now, upshot, i vented on Twitter, because that's what one does anymore, and someone asked why i just didn't get it done over here. Which was a good question. The only real answer i have is that i figured it would need to be done in-state, since every state handles records and such differently. Turns out, though, thankfully, that this can be done through the Embassy. Yay! Which is in Tokyo. Umm...not entirely yay?

      Now, i probably could get this done here in Osaka, we do have the consulate here; but the more i thought about it, the more i realized that about every support group and service for LGBTQIA folks is located in Tokyo. The English language info i've read usually lists recommendations for doctors...who are all in Tokyo, f'rex. So...me being me, and never seeing a bridge that i didn't just jump off (metaphorically speaking!), i decided i'd be moving to Tokyo. In May. June at the absolute latest, but really sooner is better as long as it's not April (when the rents jump to catch all the newcomers coming in for work).

      That's not a lot of time to have to get a lot done in (and also save all the money i can lay hands on...which is not a strong suit for me). Still, the idea of actually moving forward, taking some real meatspace steps. It's good. Scary, but good. i wish i could get things going even more quickly, but that would take a financial standing orders-of-magnitude beyond where i'm at now.

      So, that's where we are now.

        Aaaaa....little bit late, but we've still got a sweet dream for Monday (which is actually Tuesday, but...time!).



        This go about we're having a look at The Chamber by DihStyle69HipHop. It's a nice, largely minimalistic maze/story level. Some pretty cool and seamless effects going on, and an easy-to-project-yourself-into story. There are a few camera gimmicks that might be a bit much, but otherwise nothing to really complain about. Definitely worth the time investment, to me at least.

        Thanks, as always, for all the support and feedback, and have a great day!

        Had a surprise day off today, and it was mostly nice. i went out to see Knives Oot, it was really good. i mean, everyone probably knows that already, but i had a fun time with it. Was out during the daylight, clear blue sky and shunshine and all. That's...honestly a bit of a fifty-fifty kind of thing. i mean, it feels really nice to be out in my skin, but...i dunno, i feel like it's easier to fade out of notice at night? Like there's a tension to being on display? It's Japan, though, so if anyone had shite to say, they kept it to themselves.

          i put this in the wrong thread! D'oh!

          Ossu! Got another sweet dream coming up for y'all!



          This go about we're having a look at Blade Gunner by Jimmyjules153, RigorousMortuus, and The_Tenia. You may have given this one a go already, it's been riding the front page on Dream Surfing for a bit. If you haven't, give it a couple of goes. It's a neat little sidescroller-in-a-bottle level, with some pretty fabulous visual presentation. Gameplay isn't particularly expansive, but it's fun enough to keep things moving, and it made me want to jump right back in when i died.

          Thanks, as always, for all the support and feedback, and have a great day!

          So...my body keeps waking up whenever it feels like, so that's a thing. i guess it's better early, than late, since i can get a few things done before work. Even still, 2.30a is kinda pushing things, i'd say.

          Talked with mum and da on Sunday about the trip up to Tokyo, and they were really supportive. Like, moreso than i deserve, really. There's always this tension when you need help, but the help offered is more than you're comfortable taking? i'm not really in a position to say no, but i don't want my folks in the poorhouse on my account, right? Still, Knowing they have my back, and they think i'm doing the right thing means an awful lot. i can't imagine how hard it is for folx like me to have to push through all the crap society puts in front of us and be fighting their family at the same time.
