Here's me and Ronja crunching before the launch of EBF5. We forgot to change out of our outdoor clothes, apparently.

Garden Lego
Here's me and Ronja doing a bit of gardening. We don’t actually have a dog, but I do indeed use a pickaxe to till the earth.

Hey guys, after using a Galaxy Note 2 for 6 whole years, I’ve just replaced the old dinosaur with a Note 8, and I’ve got mixed feelings about it. The specs are nice; internet browsing is fast, games run smoothly, and the camera looks good. But a lot of the hardware design decisions are really questionable! The main speaker is at the bottom of the phone, so when I’m playing games, it’s always covered by either my hand or my stomach. This wasn’t a problem with the Note 2, since the speaker was on the back of the phone. This seems like a major oversight to me!

I also feel scammed by the advertised 6.3 inch screen size. The Note 2 screen is 5.5 inches, so I’d figure it would be an upgrade, but it’s not! The Note 8 screen is just longer! Videos and games aren’t even designed for such a long screen! And some of the screen space is wasted on reflective curved edges. So if anything, the screen looks smaller than on my old phone! Questionable design indeed.

Annoying hardware aside, it’s nice to have a phone that doesn’t crash when I try to open basic apps like Google maps. I’m still happy I got a “flagship” phone, as it’s partly for market research. Speaking of which, I’m trying to play a lot of little indie games on it – the kind of stuff you’d see on Kongregate a few years ago. Looks like a lot of browser game devs have moved to mobile, and I’ve got some catching up to do. It’s a shame that the mobile market is poorly curated and saturated with garbage, so finding those gems will be tricky. Feel free to recommend some wholesome, non-exploitative games. So far I’m enjoying Super Dangerous Dungeons, Monument Valley, and Cat Bird. I was sceptical of on-screen keyboards, but they work okay if there’s only 3 buttons.

Also I’m really liking the EBF5 Foe Competition entries so far. I thought maybe the rules were too specific this time, but it looks like most people understand what I’m looking for.

Hey just curious do you still export your games as flash files, or have you started shifting over to HTML 5? How are you dealing with the impending cancellation of Adobe Flash?

They're still made in Flash.
Flash isn't being cancelled. It just won't run in browsers anymore, which doesn't effect me that much since I'm a Steam developer now.

I’ve been a huge fan for years now, and I’ve just asked myself what songs I’d associate with the characters, and drew a blank. I was wondering if you associate them with any.
Again, can’t thank you enough for everything you’ve done. Best wishes.

Your game figures are so cute. The footless cat is similar to the plush I made for my boyfriend years ago. :) It was so nice to see it in a game. :D

I am sorry if I am bothering you but I drew fanart

I am gonna finish something else really soon but I don't know when for sure

It might be probably a lot to ask and it's not necessary that you do it, but I have a small request
I know I am saying this too late, but I'm hoping you could probably somehow replace my old art in ebf5 with something more recent, not necessary, but that drawing if I remember correctly was way too old and I feel a bit uncomfortable about it

Thanks anyway for everything, and again I am sorry if I wasted your time.

It's a bit late for me to change it now, but I'll consider it for future updates.

I really liked the drawing, so you shouldn't feel uncomfortable about it.

Sorry to bother you, but this is something I thought you'd find interesting: The prototype of Pokemon Gold has been dumped and leaked into the internet. Now we can see the things that were cut off the final game =D
