        Underage?
        According to the records, she doesn't have less than 17, but she could also have 18 for the events of the game
        She looks pretty grown up for me.

    No that would be making a half finished porn game, raking in the Patreon bucks, and then never finishing it

    horror, metroidvania, slice of life. Use one these and you are on an easy path that you can just as easily frick up.
    I've had an idea for an rpg, the kind where 3-4 homies stand in a row fighting what ever is thrown at them, I want 20 people, I want a large group. I want to be band of mercs. if you don't want to write characters you could also introduce some kind of death system.
    Yes I've play battle brothers and it did scratch the itch but I kinda want a jrpg that does this, I want a merc squad hired to fight god.

    Indies have occupied the AA space that used to exist before the HD era.

    They are
    >Porn game with patreon milking
    >Horror when done right
    A lot of horror games bomb. I'll probably make one later to learn some stuff, but they don't require as much investment as other genres

    How to make bank as an indie dev:
    1. Choose your path, horror(A), or porn(B).
    1a. Make scary(optional) game
    2a. Let youtubers and twitch screamers scream their ass off and overreact at your game for content
    3a. Let unaware consoomers buy it up like hotcakes.

    1b. Make porn game in RPGMaker
    2b. Steal assets
    3b. Make patreon
    4b. Promise updates when you hit donation goals
    5b. Abandon and repeat

    games aren't get rich schemes. the chances of your game being good and yet be buried in a heap of trash is exponentially high.

    Game is full SOUL, and graphics look like real time pre-rendered backgrounds of ps1 era. The game was literally made by two people (who are brothers). It's not very hard but the sound design and style is awesome.

      You're forgetting the music composer, literally the game wouldn't be as good without its OST.

    Horror makes best streamerbait which translates into sales

    >50k sales
    >rich
    20$ * 0.7 = 14$
    14$ * 50,000 = 700,000$
    700,000$ / 2 (assuming both devs split the money evenly) = 350,000$
    350,000$ / 4 (last game released 4-5 years ago) = 87,500$

    87,500$ per year, per developer, before taxes.

    The prepetual revenue from older games and this game through future sales will most likely put their profit margin at a higher point, but in no way are they rich.

    Horror fans are on the same level as waifu gays in their autistic dedication to the scary media they choose to support. There's a reason why both a ton of old low budget horror movies and new horror movies that look like they should flop in sales often do better then any other genre.

    They openly shill it online and the hype trickles down to e-celebs and normies that eventually find out about it.

    the ending was shit
    basically they found some cave under the themepark with magical goop that transfer them into another world and the goop started to spread its tentacles into the world and transforming people into monsters. The girl just happened to be a survivor of the event who was infected with the pozz but somehow survives long enough to close the goop

      >into another world
      You didn't read the note at the end and you probably didn't understand the blood numbers written all over the park.
      It's literally people from the future returning to a better and not contaminated world but Edward Crow ruined the machine, and deforming them.
      The golden tentacles are antennas of the time machine.

        NTA but i was a bit confused by one thing. I get using the machine to setup the time portal for people. But how did they get the golden roots stuff in that time in the first place if the whole point was to make a machine to transfer stuff through time? Couldnt they just send people directly?

          Perhaps the roots acted as gauges that had to accumulate energy from the other side to make the wormhole possible or make it stable enough to let people pass through.
          Which turned out disastrous, because the portal manifested in a very deep underground cave and the people of the past mistook its antennas for precious minerals.
