Fortune's Tavern: Fantasy Tavern Sim – Funded!

Fortune’s Tavern Congratulations to the Fortune’s Tavern team! The project has been successfully funded! I’m looking forward to playing the game and to reviewing it on this blogsite. It’s scheduled for release in the second quarter of next year but, as a backer of their Kickstarter project, I’ll receive a copy earlier so will be able to thoroughly playtest it. I was originally interested in the project because of its unique concept. I’ve seen a few similar sim games on Steam, such as Recettear: An Item Shop’s Tale, but never played them. So I decided to contribute towards the Fortune’s Tavern. (Please don’t send me requests to back your project,…

RPG Maker VX/Ace in Ubuntu

A while a go I tested RMVX on Ubuntu and, while it did run it wasn’t without its problems. Things seem to have progressed since then thanks to several updates to Ubuntu itself and Wine/Wine Tricks. Apparently, it’s now possible to install RMVXA onto Ubuntu (11.10/12.04+ LTS) with very few hitches. Full details on the entire installation process can be viewed on the RPG Maker Web Forum. Now, at this time I can’t test this out because my old dual-boot Windows 7/Xubuntu computer died a while ago. I haven’t bothered reinstalling Ubuntu on this one. Playtesting, which was a major issue with RMVX when I tested it, doesn’t seem to…

In Reality… Link

I found these on Cracked and thought I’d share them just for fun. If Link was a real person in the "real" world, these might be some of the things he’d be subjected to.

Sprite Icon Tutorial for RPG Maker

Here’s a simple tutorial for creating custom RPG Maker icons and sprite sheets in GIMP (Photoshop should work as well since they have similar functions). I’ve been using GIMP for years and this tutorial taught me a few things as well. This doesn’t go into too much detail on how to create quality icons, but it does give you an idea and provides the easiest way to do so.

Dragonborn – Act I (Skyrim Fan Movie/Machinima)

Dragonborn – Act I is a Skyrim fan-made movie by Yong Yea. This is quite spectacular and very well produced. This is actually a full movie, so it’s just over an hour long! I’m always on the lookout for good machinima and Dragonborn is on the top of the list. A sequel is apparently in the works, so I’m looking forward to watching that.
