Hello! It's been almost a month, so let's update!

Maybe I spoke too soon. Witch Doctor Kaneko is still in the planning stages, so there isn't much I can reveal about it yet. And I'd rather reveal things down the road when I know they're going to happen, rather than get up false hopes and have to backtrack later on. So believe me, I'll reveal more details when the moment is right. It's just not now.

That said, there's one very important thing which I can mention. Witch Doctor K ...


Our Next Game

Alright, I think it's about time for another update. There are a number of things I want to discuss this time, so let's get right to it!

So, to follow up the previous post: Detective Butler EP2 hasn't made any progress. I want to make it official that Detective Butler EP2 will be on hold until further notice.

Firstly, I honestly don't feel like I have the necessary experience to make the game the way it should be made. From both a mystery-crafting and writing perspective, I'm ...


New Year, New Games

So my winter break has come to an end. Where does Goldbar Games stand? Well, let's take a look!

Detective Butler EP2 is still in planning stages. A rather insignificant portion of writing is finished, but most of the plot is still being worked on. I feel very good about it though. Our team frequently discusses the plot as both a story and as a mystery, constantly refining our vision of the game. At this rate, the second episode is going to be longer and better than the first one. The ...


On the Night of Kinjo's Redemption

Happy New Year's Eve! Just in time for Winter Comiket, as usual, I've got a new game for download: On the Night of Kinjo's Redemption. It's a Higanbana no Saku Yoru ni fangame, probably the first (and last) of its kind.

The sequel to the fangame Repercussion of the Golden Witch, this story takes place in the world of Higanbana. Ozaki, a newly recruited science teacher at Spider Lily High School, becomes involved in a series of supernatural murders. Is the culprit a human or a youkai? ...


The Game Plan

I've been meaning to make this post ever since it turned December. But now I know exactly what I want to say.

Quite a bit has happened since the last update. Starting off with a pleasant surprise, we now have a musician on the team, Solo Acapello. He expressed great interest in joining the team, and he enjoys mystery novels just as much as we do, so there's no doubt his music will improve Detective Butler.

Speaking of that, we've made a lot of progress there in general. I've ...


Not Much to Say

Haven't posted anything in a while. Trying not to make useless posts, so I guess that's why. Been occupied with real life, but aside from that, I've done a lot of thinking on the side for future game ideas.

I believe I've got a good one, a puzzle/RPG hybrid of sorts. I won't be going into any detail on it just yet (I still need to work out a lot of mechanics), but Detective Butler and any other VN ideas of mine will be taking a backseat to it for quite a while. I want to branch out in ...


Responding to Player Feedback

So it's time for a decent blog post. I feel like I've had some time to think over a lot of topics, and the first I'd like to discuss is the idea of player feedback. Specifically, how should a developer respond?

Naturally, I was tasked with answering that question during the past two months. Initially I was ecstatic to begin talking about my new release, as I'm sure any developer would be. There are certainly some people who think that game makers who "keep in touch" with their audienc ...


Back From the Dead

Or at least I'd like to think.

Generally, there are going to be less updates until I make significant progress on anything. School also takes up quite a bit of time which leaves me without much meaningful to say.

I can either continue blogging my thoughts on game development in the meantime or just wait it out until I have progress to show.

That said, Ozaki, Rudolf, and I have been brainstorming some ideas for another VN alongside Butler EP2. Before I begin writing EP2 ...
