Just in case anyone is finding difficulty finishing the game, here's a walkthrough aWalkThroughLife made on YouTube!

I've also been surprised people are still playing and reviewing the game every once in a while, as well as making play through videos on YT. It's been a really positive experience for me and Reim both, seeing as Little Maddie Dear is the first completed game for both of us.

Happy holidays everyone!

First of all I wanna say thank you to everyone who had commented and given criticism for Little Maddie Dear, they had all been really useful! @ReimHarbert and I had made some updates to the game, including bug fixes and implementation of some advices we were given. Also, the difficulty had been quite significantly reduced with more saves and most importantly the addition of maps provided in chests.

If you haven't checked it out already, please give the game a go and let us know what you think!

The full updates are as follows:

+ Minor dialogue fixes.

+ Relocated some of the monster.

+ Increased save points in storage, kitchen and attic.

+ Changed the color of HP bar to match Strawberry Candy.

+ Now all pictures are shown when Maddie acquired them.

+ Added descriptions to candies.

+ Nerfed the Bogeyman slightly.

+ Decreased the damage of Phantom's attack (the tall man).

+ Fixed the bug where sometimes Maddie can go behind the Bogeyman.

+ Decreased chests containing The Things.

+ Increased chests containing Blueberry Candies.

+ Decreased chests containing Strawberry Candies.

+ Added chests containing Photos (pictures of maps).


I am also collaborating with Reim again for a future project. We're still in a very early conceptual phase so I won't reveal anything yet but I'm really excited to get to working on it.

Thanks for the positive feedback overall for LMD!

Happy Halloween!

This year instead of making an animation I've decided to go with a game submission with my pal Reim Harbert for Spooktacular! Super happy to see it got Frontpaged! Please have a look and let us know what you think.

Thanks to Reim's RPG Maker skills, I finally manage to complete a game. In the future I think I'll keep bothering him to help me publish my games. Hope you can enjoy a little dose of horrors and cuteness this Halloween with Little Maddie Dear.


P.S. If the game lags on Chrome, it managed to crash both Krita and RPG Maker MV on the fifth map too. We hate that map.

submitted but not the first I've recorded.

I was going to also animate this a little so it looks like fancy game loading screen but I'm still looking around for a good software. Screw adobe so no premier. Live2D maybe?

It's a speedpaint!

This isn't the Christmas thing I was saying about, it's a shorter project so I'm uploading it first. I hope it's useful for fellow artists! It was definitely fun for me.

As usual, gimme all the delicious criticism in the vod.

I reworked my old wix page to a much simpler one for commission info! I'll be open starting February, but you can contact me anytime to discuss stuff.

There's also some goodstuff in the sample art for commissions. I've been... experimenting, you see *wink wink*

Also, bonus stuff. There's a link there to a casual Twitter account I've just been using to follow some people. I'll be using it for fanart stuff later this year. Tweet at me anyway if you wanna share memes

I still don't know how to twitter tho
There's also a link to my semi-dead Instagram

Don't have anything special but happy new year! May 2020 be a great new year for all of us.

Last year I made a similar post with some reflections and expectations. Did I succeed them? On a scale of 1 to 10 I think I hit a...


I went to the animation route instead of games and didn't finish writing but I did finish most of the stuff I started 2019 so that's the good bit. My summary of 2019 is that it's lots of surprises all year round. Expectations for 2020? Getting better at animating/making little short films. I will also be updating my old forgotten wix website to link to for commission details since I've been able to land a few consistently every other month or so.

There's two projects that'll carry over to 2020. One is the third installment to Insufficient which needs a lot of fixing considering the response to the second one which I rushed for Halloween. The other one would be coming out later this week... or whenever it finishes. I still haven't done the coloring and touched anything sound related. I want to avoid rushing stuff so much and sacrificing the results.

Anyway, cheers to everyone on NG. Thanks for the unexpectedly good year.


Watch it when it comes out. Please.

I'm trying out something with this one and my dignity's on the line.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

It's been an insanely busy time for me but I was able to take a breather and enjoy some time this Christmas. I'll be having my new-year break pretty soon and there's something quite new that I've been working on (spoiler: it's a season-friendly animatic). The new Project system is supposed to release next week so it should be the perfect opportunity to see how the new setup is. I'm super excited (and nervous) to share the results, but hopefully it'll be a good end and start to a new year.

I joined Secret Santa in the Art Forum and got a really pleasant drawing from @MrShmoods!


Perfectly captures my Christmas this year. Sucks to be away from home. My only comfort are warm drinks and disgusting amounts of food so this piece is the cherry on top.

I posted my own submission just now (for @redemer19). Managed to capture redemption and classic Japanese humor so I'm satisfied with most of the result!

my brain has left and took the kids so until it comes back with milk I will be spastically posting uninhibited random shit

christmas is an exception. my grandmama said I gotta take it seriously or I get kicked out the basement

It's the start of November and spooky month has just ended. Hope everyone had a great Halloween (if you celebrate it).

I've been making plans in an effort to discipline and push myself to be better. Up to December I've got a few things I'd like to be working on regularly. The first and easiest one would be the monster series. I'll be posting that whenever I don't have anything specific to draw. The next one would be a bunch of fanarts, since I feel like I don't give enough appreciation to the creators that inspire me. I'll probably be posting these on Fridays - cuz Fanart Fridays sounds like a legit thing. Hopefully this will get me to post two or three times a week.

Here's one fanart I'm working on:


If you can guess the musician and the exact song you get a whole genuine "Congratulations!" from me.

Aside from that, I'll be working on something I'll put up next year and continuing on Insufficient. The last one had a lower score than the last so I'll make sure to spend more time on the third part. As for the new project, it isn't an animation so I don't know how well that will takeoff on NG. Fingers crossed.
