I wanted to make some points clear:It seems that as the developer starts chugging out more games per year, the quality of them keeps dropping. None of his latter installments can stand up to the original Loren The Amazon Princess.
- the fact that I made 5 games in 2016. I absolutely didn't rush them out!!!!! ALL those games, except PSCD, were in the works since YEARS. It only happened, as pure coincidence, that they were all ready that year. That's it. I'm not rushing anything.
- I would like to have another game standing up to Loren, but guess what, it's not that easy but this doesn't mean I am not trying.
- the money spent on games is increasing every year. PSCD or Amber or the recent Cursed Lands has basically 2-3 times the content of Loren (maybe except the writing in Amber's case). Meanwhile, because of the indieapocalpyse, revenues are completely on free-fall. As you can imagine it's not a pleasant situation to be in
Then of course I was the first to admit that I wasn't too happy about my recent releases, and sometimes it also depends on tastes, but for example Heirs & Graces has the highest review score (on Steam) of ALL my games. PSCD after got the manga update is doing VERY well. So it's just like before. After I did Loren, I also released some "less good games" (not bad, but not up to the standards) like Nicole, Bionic Heart 2, Heileen 3. And then I did two ones like Roommates and SOTW that in general were well received. It's just the way it goes, at least for me. I wish ALL my next games were topseller but sadly I can't know
So what happened in recent years is that I made 5 new games, 2-3 came out good, the other less. I might have made some poor choices in the past, but I always try to do my best, that's sure.
