The last angel I will show! The others are gonna stay secret for now. This one has no armor but a golden crossbow!

You can see a time lapse of this guy here, with some annotations as usual. I also work on some tiles after that:

I’m focusing on vampires now! Drew three of them already: a Tick vampire, a large mosquito vampire and a weirder one with a goblin shark-like face and big bellows where the lungs should be. I’ll be posting them here soon.

By the time this post goes up I should be streaming the next vampire, its either going to be a crocodile vampire or a shark vampire, those are two sketches I’m itching to turn into pixels soon. There’s also a ball of leeches, but it needs a bit more work…

After several months in the making, the 7th Stand User English Translation is finally complete! Thanks to everyone who supported me during this project, especially Clayman for not only giving me her blessing but being super cooperative and encouraging throughout.

There’s still much more to do, of course - even though it’s a fan-game, it is also a big game and the result of over 5 years of work on the creator’s part. You could play it 10 times over and still not find everything, which is why I plan to put up a guide sometime soon. In addition, since I was the only one working on the game and I’m not the greatest when it comes to catching errors, I’m putting this out as a beta - I’m going to try and put out an updated version once I get a little more feedback on the translation. Until then, enjoy! Please check the readme as I’ve included an FAQ for common issues like squished text, but if you have a problem that isn’t covered there, don’t hesitate to tell me.

Light Novels from RPG horrors I found while strolling through amazon japan!

Haikyuu!! Questers is a fan-made medieval RPG featuring the characters from Haikyuu!! Built in RPGMaker, Haikyuu!! Questers offers an old school RPG feel without the gross bigotry typical of the genre. This game is a parody inspired by Final Haikyuu!! Quest and while the two share a number of elements, the plotline is quite different. (Probably. The developers of Haikyuu!! Questers are American monolingual English speakers and thus cannot access the official game.)

DOWNLOAD THE DEMO FROM DROPBOX HERE! (And here are the instructions for how to play!)

What’s the plot?
Hinata and Yachi are good friends who live in a small town called Karasuno. They dream of being knights and going on adventures; Hinata works at the local inn to save up money for armor and Yachi spends most of her time reading books about military strategy. When a couple of strange visitors come to town and offer them a path to knighthood, they strike out on an adventure they never expected! Along the way they meet a bunch of cool new friends and battle an evil would-be king who’s capturing the dragons who protect the world!

Who’s in it?

  • Hinata (protagonist)
    An aspiring knight who makes an unlikely friend in Kageyama.
  • Yachi
    An aspiring knight who meets a stunning girl and becomes her travel companion.
  • Kageyama
    A runaway prince trying to escape the weight and solitude of the crown.
  • Shimizu
    A high-level mage who takes a liking to Yachi.
  • Tsukki
    A royal knight in search of Kageyama.
  • Yamaguchi
    A royal knight who secretly dreams of becoming a cleric.
  • Suga
    A cleric who’s just graduated from college and is looking for an adventure.
  • Iwaizumi
    A mysterious warrior from the city of Seijoh.
  • Kenma
    A mage in search of a magical artifact that will save a friend from a terrible fate.
  • Kuroo
    Another mage, trapped in a bizarre predicament.
  • Oikawa
    Seijoh’s banished prince and ruler of a new evil empire. His motives are unknown.
  • …and potentially more to come!

Why should I be interested?
Well, if the information above doesn’t interest you, here’s something that might: canon MOGAI characters in totally irrefutable relationships with each other, asexual and nonbinary characters whose identities are respected by and featured in the plot, minimal (hopefully nonexistent—we might mess up!) ableist language in spite of translated canon, and developers who are completely open to criticism when we get something wrong.

How about some more game specifics?

  • Our fan game will be completely FREE to download and play! If you’re reading this post and have a suggestion as to where we could post our final edition so that everyone can access it, send us a fanmail!
  • The game is created in RPGMaker VX Ace using a few custom scripts (which will be included in the credits). All the visual and auditory content in the demo, apart from those scripts, is native to RPGMaker.
  • Haikyuu!! Questers is being written and developed by Max and Dragon. Max is a full-time student and Dragon has one of those full-time office job thingies so we’re not going to set any absolute release dates. This demo, which includes one area and about an hour and a half of gameplay, took about four weeks to complete. We’ll update you on the Haikyuu!! Questers blog periodically and answer questions directed there!
  • We aim to make the game accessible: it will be relatively easy to play (no lengthy grinding necessary) and completely safe for work, apart from some swearing. We’ll warn for all triggers we know of or are notified of by users!

AND FINALLY…WE NEED YOUR HELP!
We’re vaguely computer savvy writers, not artists. The character art we put together in RPGMaker looks okay, but there isn’t a range of expressions and the characters don’t resemble canon very well. If you’re an artist and would like to contribute character face icons for this project, we’d absolutely LOVE your help! We’d also love to have special art for key scenes in the story—we’ll put out posts requesting those as we get farther along! If you’re not a visual artist and you’d still like to contribute, you can create music for us or send us ideas! For more information on what we need, visit our art specifications page.

In the interest of keeping the game free to download and play, we can’t pay for any art or other submissions. If you contribute to this project, you do so completely for free. We will absolutely credit all contributors!
