TyranoBuilder is hosting their annual Summer Game Jam and yours truly, along with my partner, sakuyasworld, have been invited to be guest judges!! 

As many of you know, I created the original demo of Faulty Apprentice as well as Paramedium and the SamGen Visual Novel with Tyranobuilder. If you are not familiar with Tyranobuilder, its a great entry visual novel engine that is not only incredibly inexpensive, it makes the process of development very streamlined and easy to pick up. Whether you are a first time user, or looking at engines for your next game, definitely check out Tyranobuilder. (=

Now that you all know what Tyranobuilder is, I can tell you how excited I am to be a guest judge for such an awesome competition. Game Jams, like art jams are incredibly educational so if you are on the fence about entering, DO IT! If you have never made a Visual Novel before, give it a try! If you have never heard of visual novels, check out the ones I made using Tyranobuilder =D

Archery Training on Patreon: bit.ly/PatreonAGL

Greetings Knights! Or should I say, Rangers? Your good friend and humble servant of the Royal Commander, Din here to share the new and more tsundere Archery Training mini-game for Faulty Apprentice!
Testing Tools: Pressing No will skip Archery Training. DO NOT PRESS ON FIRST PLAYTHROUGH!

New Features to Faulty Apprentice Archery Training:
- Green Arrow! Wouldn't it be cool to be the super hero, Green Arrow? Probably, but not as cool as the new effect we made for shooting targets in Archery Training! Previously, the Instructor would tell you the Target Order via standard dialogue. Now, you will not only get standard dialogue, but there are also visual cues!

- Voice of an Angel~ Why stop at visual and written commands when we have a lovely Voice Actress working with? Now the Archery Instructor will read out commands aloud, just for you~<3

- We're Moving! No, not our studio, we mean the art! Thanks to help from our new team member and programmer, BamBam, we now have slight animations to the reward images. This is a new feature in Unity Engine that we are exploring, so we hope to learn more in order animate other areas of the game such as the character sprites and backgrounds. Let us know if you want to see more animations like these!

- Say my name, BIATCH!! In this build we learn the name of the Archery Instructor! Sorry for swearing, just excited to share the build =P

- Secret Archery Technique! For those keen of sight, we've added a hidden advantage when using your Bow & Arrow outside of Training. We can't tell you what it is, but if you figure it out, feel free to share with your fellow Apprentices. I'm sure they'll appreciate it!

- Secret Scene! Uuhh, yea, can't talk about this one either, but you'll know it when you see it! XD

- Touch me baby! As mentioned earlier, we are experimenting with new animation features in Unity engine. Maybe something will happen if you click certain areas of certain reward images? Again, this is a first attempt so we only have this feature on one image, but if we get a good response, we can add more!



Sword Training on Kickstarter (backers only)

100% new and 110% more awesome, the Sword Training has been rebuilt from the ground up to give you the sword swinging experience yo deserve!

New Feature to Faulty Apprentice Sword Training:
- You've got Wood! Since the Apprentice is a red blooded man(boy) like the rest of us, he knows what to do when his wood pops up... Chop it in half!! Swing into action with the rebuilt mini game for sword training. This is something we've wanted to do since the first concepts of the Sword route, so we can't tell you how cool it is to see it happening XD Well, we hope you all think its cool, let us know!

- Clear! No, we are not hitting you with the defibrillator, its just a cool new "Cleared" glorification moment to let you know when the mini game is complete! Why? Because you worked hard to beat that game and deserve some sparkles (=

- Chibi-ization! As mentioned in the previous update, chibis will be taking a larger role in the games storytelling. In our old game engine, we could only have chibis appear between dialogue, but now they're EVERYWHERE! We hope that this makes story points more clear and engaging.

Thank you for following the progress of my game, Faulty Apprentice!

Thanks to the massive support on Kickstarter, Faulty Apprentice has been getting a complete makeover!

We are going to be ramping up Faulty Apprentice development and with all the additional content, the original projection of the $9.99 sale price will be changing. We can't say exactly how much the price will increase as of now, but we can say this is your last chance to get Kickstarter Price!

Faulty Apprentice Trailer:

In a world of Magic, Monsters and Mystery 
You are the Faulty Apprentice!

Faulty Apprentice is an interactive visual novel with elements of fantasy and lighthearted fun. You take on the role of an ordinary farm boy that left home seeking a glorious apprenticeship. You have had a couple jobs, in fact, you have had a lot, more than you can count. Why do you keep getting fired? If you can't hold an apprenticeship at this castle, there is nowhere left!

Is a lifetime of failure leading the Apprentice to a greater purpose? Or will he fail in a blaze of glory like always? Perhaps with your help and some new friends, you can turn this Faulty Apprentice into a true hero!

WOO!!! With this level of support, I can update Patreon with new art every week! Reaching this goal gives me a big chunk of freedom and security every month, allowing me to do what I do best, CREATE! *holds wacom pen into the air*

Ever since my partner sakuyasworld and I started making Visual Novels, our patreon has been growing rapidly. This new direction of making our own games, versus doing contract artwork, has been a great change for us. Not only gives us control over what we create, but also who we share it with (no more waiting 2+ years due to NDA restrictions). By supporting on Patreon you get to be a part of the game dev process every step of the way, from concept art to beta testing!

For a new indiegame studio, the most difficult part is generating funds, but with Patreon, we have cultivated a win-win system. We are being funded to create games, and in return, we share the games and art with our supporters! Another part of our recent sucress on Patreon is the fact our games are so art heavy. It allows for us to fill in the gaps between game updates by sharing the development. And yes, that includes NSFW art ~<3
