Let's get this show back on the road!
 
Hey hey hey hi hey HELLO! For those of you that follow my twitter, you'll know I've been busy with a project I've been pretty QUIET ABOUT. However, it's a bit too big for the current team (read: literally only me), as well as my level of experience.

So first up:
PURO!
Puro is a little robot who journeys into an ancient, wish-granting factory to get her voice back. Gameplay is 2.5D with a focus on puzzles and bosses, and will be a bit on the smaller side, and draws heavy inspiration from titles such as Klonoa: Door to Phantomile and Kirby 64, as well as bits and pieces from titles like Super Mario Bros. 2 and even Final Fantasy XIV. I wanna use this opportunity to refine both the gameplay and the engine of the project that follows as best I can, so I'm turning to all of you for this. The beta will become available to $5+ patrons only sometime this spring with regular updates. I will be actively seeking feedback because I want this and what follows to be the best damn game it can be.

ALSO!! TUTORIALS ARE COMING
All the time people be asking me, "Taxiderby (me), that thing you did. How do you do the thing??" WELL IF YOU WANT MY SECRETS YOU CAN HAVE THEM...... FOR A PRICE. Subjects include animation techniques, code secrets, gameplay philosophy, and, iunno, maybe I'll teach you how to cook something??? Tutorials will arrive twice a month for $2+ patrons, with a couple free exceptions.

Anyway,
I've been in a self-imposed crunch time for 2 weeks now and I'm going to lay face down on the floor for like the next six hours. For existing patrons and any that have just joined, THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!!

Oh HELL yes. This is what spellcasting's all about and you love hurt magic. In addition to all of the above, you'll get a direct line to your friend (me) (Taxiderby) (that's me) via the discord about the development of the current project, be able to see and give input on things not even in alpha yet. Plus, if there's any code tricks used in Puro that you'd like to learn, I'll gladly walk you through it. How about them magically-conjured ethereal death apples.

You're the thing of legends. People dare only whisper your name. It is said that you are shrouded in enchanted fabrics to contain your own insane power, but the truth is you absolutely do not want anyone to find out just how cute you are. 


In addition to all of the above, you can get a lil robot of your own in the game as an NPC!! Rolled off the same assembly line as Puro herself, for the first month you get your choice of name, LED face (with expressions), colors, dialogue, and accessory. For each additional month pledged at this tier you choose to get a unique outfit (one time only), a unique animation, or props for your robot friend. Limit one character per patron.

Feel free to contact me at [email protected] if you have any questions!
