|I'm working on a game called Epic Battle Fantasy 5! Click for some player animations!|
Hey guys, here’s some info about the Steam release…
Epic Battle Fantasy 5 will cost $15 on Steam. The release date is "Late 2018". The soundtrack will be sold separately, probably for $5. It’s DLC, so you can’t buy it on Steam without the game, but you can get it directly from Phyrnna for a little more.
Everyone who owns EBF4 on Steam will get a 20% discount coupon for EBF5. I think Valve sets this up so that coupons are sent out just after launch. This works better for me than a launch discount, because it lets me notify 200,000 Steam users at once. Should make for a decent marketting campaign to get the ball rolling.
Once the coupons expire after a month, I’ll release a Steam bundle of EBF4, EBF5, and Bullet Heaven 2. This bundle gives you 20% off if you “complete the set”. If you only own EBF4, for example, you can buy the other 2 games together for 20% off. This will be a permanent deal going forward, and it works in conjunction with other discounts. It’s basically a scam to make people buy BH2.
Patrons who have given me at least $15 will get Steam keys a few days before official release, so they can double check that everything is working correctly.
The free web version will be released once I’ve had a break from the Steam release. But the beta will most likely stay up on this website until then anyway. Saves between all versions will be compatible, and easily transferable with the save backup feature. Saves from the beta may have a few minor problems – such as permanently missing an equip or two if you save in the wrong place.
Hey guys, the EBF5 public beta is back with version 0.7!
I didn’t advertise the earlier versions much, because I didn’t want everyone to play it at once. But I guess I can open the flood gates now.
There’s not much left to do, only a few bugs and maybe a few balancing tweaks.
I’ll probably be asking for translators in a few days, so stay tuned! If you translated some of my previous games, I’ll email you a bit in advance.
And look, you can do double and triple critical hits now!
This is currently a bit of a secret feature, and isn’t documented in the game.
Here's a new 7th Heaven animation that more resembles the original Kyun animation, since a lot of people complained. Also has support for different outfits now, including a work-safe one. Though they won't all be finished in time for the next beta. You're not allowed to say you liked the old ones better unless you explain why.
Art's by Ronja, animation's by me.
(I've made the eyebrows less noticeable due to complaints, but I recorded this video before I made that change. You're all an annoying, nit-picking bunch.)
