Once upon a time, in the Kingdom of A, Princess A was about to sit down for a nice breakfast when a message arrived. The princess of Kingdom B has been kidnapped! Quickly she finished her eggs and toast and dashed out the castle gate, eager to come to the lady's rescue.

At the exact same time, Princess B was indulging in her morning lager when she too received a message. Someone has kidnapped Princess A! Without hesitation, she swigged down the rest of her beverage and began her quest to save the fair damsel!

And so began Princess A and Princess B's long, epic journey to rescue... each other.

Princess Panic! is the title of a 2-d yuri game based heavily on the mechanics of Paper Mario and other such platformer/adventure/RPG hybrids. Lots of action, silliness, puzzles, and romance will be involved. At the start of the game, the player follows the quest of each princess in an alternating fashion, and with each chapter, their journeys become more and more interlinked, to the point where the princesses find themselves depending on each other without even knowing it.

As yet, this is an idea blog, and production has yet to be started. It is way too early say if it will go beyond that, but who knows. Stranger things have happened.

The creator and owner of this blog is Josh L, whose previous work was a webcomic named Girly. If you're familiar with that comic you may know what kind of thing to expect here. Any artists, programmers, developers, publishers, and all interested parties can contact him at his email / facebook / twitter

Q
How's the "You Suck" book coming along? I saw a link to the comic on lemonfont, read the whole hilarious thing (or at least as much of it as there was) in one sitting, and new I had to back the book right away. Cheers!

superhappy:

Yeah, it has been a bit stalled for a couple months, but fortunately this should end soon. Like all my recent stalled projects, I’m blaming it mostly on the move. Though along with that, recent Slipshine work has taken up a lot more of my time than expected. One thing just kind of led to another and after taking in all the new artists, we up and realized the company needed to be restructured. This also led to me deciding to pass many of my Slipshine jobs onto other people, and I am still working on getting that all set up.

It’s quite a difficult pickle indeed, but once it’s done, it should result in a faster, more rapidly growing Slipshine that leaves me with more time to work on my own stuff.

The main things that still need to be done for the book are the back cover and the bonus comic. Hopefully I’ll be able to come up with an idea for that soon :o Aside from that, I HAVE kind of sort of been working on the book these past weeks as all the random You Suck-related art and sketches I’ve been posting in the Tumblr will all be used to decorate it.

Though you didn’t ask about it, drop this whole explanation under why Dungeon Panic has also stalled. Except all three project leads (Me, John, Severin) were faced with a move and job-related life issues, all one after the other and yeah, there’s just no way a project is going to keep going with all that happening!

It’s been tough but it will all be worth it in the end!

Y’know, I better reblog this here too.

I wanted to draw a comic where A and Ade provide this explanation while stabbing me repeatedly, but this wall of text will have to do for now.

Happy Appleday! Shmorky was kind enough to take us up on our “Name an NPC” tier, and here’s the result! Shmorky has been a huge influence on me and my work for years, so drawing these sprites was a real blast.

Introducing… Dr. Jeff! 
Dr. Jeff is the result of the “Name a Monster” tier from the Dungeon Panic Kickstarter. Using the power of science, he runs around the dungeon zapping anything that moves. 
Slowly, slowly I’m finishing these backer rewards. Life has me juggling Dunpan work with other projects, so I can’t get sprites done nearly as fast as I’d like, but I haven’t given up by any means. Spring is bringing back renewed vigor.

Hello! Dungeon Panic artist Severin here! Production on the game isn’t dead, just greatly slowed down for the holidays. The art assets needed to form the core of the game are mostly finished, so I’ve moved on to fulfilling specific in-game backer rewards. First up is Crange the Egg Wizard requested by KC Green. All of Crange’s sprites are drawn, so expect to see him added to the alpha soon-ish.

Something a bit different today… video!  Yes, the latest Android version now provides for screen video capture, which means we can show all you fine folks who either aren’t backers or who don’t have an Android device just what DunPan is looking like.  I’ll be making these at intervals as I have time.

See ya!

I’m in the middle of implementing a whole new lighting system in DunPan.  Here’s a screenshot showing some of the debug overlay graphics used when testing.  Pyew pyew pyew!
That’s all.

Dungeon Panic Alpha 2 (The Dungeon Release)

G’day g’day everyone!  DevJohn here!

Last night we pushed a new Dungeon Panic version up to Google; version 0.0.5, aka “Alpha 2” aka “the Dungeon Build.”  If you’re a backer and you’re signed up for the alpha, you should have the new version pushed to your device(s) already, or very soon if not.

As we mentioned in a previous Kickstarter update, we gave ourselves a deadline of Oct 25 to get something to the backers, regardless of the current state of the code.  We went a little over time and spent the weekend getting some last stuff done, but it was necessary.

So, the first (randomly generated) dungeon is now playable, with whatever character the player creates in the CharaMaker.  It’s very rough still; it is an alpha after all.  Bugs and glitches abound.  It’s also fiendishly difficult, as Default Dude above can attest.  Those Skellingtons and Green Slimes don’t make it easy!  We’ll continue tuning that as we go.

Expect incremental updates to roll out on a pretty regular basis from here on.  We’ll post something for the more notable ones.

Also, if you have been a visitor of the backer forums, let it be known that I am checking it regularly again and posting weekly updates.  Kickstarter updates will tend to lag behind for logistics reasons; the backer forum is the Prime Spot.  C’mon back.

Until next time!

-John
