My main goal with this game thing was for it to be something sort of like RPG Maker, but much easier to use; it's probably possible to learn about all the basic features in like ten minutes, and you can make a full 'quest' thing in a few hours, which you can then share easily with others. I'm going to try to release a video of how it all works very soon!

I've been thinking about Steam Greenlight too, but I'm not sure how it'd work with this game... I mean, I've been planning to release a sort of standalone version once I have enough work done on it, but after THAT I'll have a version of it that'll be updated frequently with new features. There might be a bunch of technical and legal issues with that if I use Steam... though I'll at least look into it some more.

Well. I see that the comments here are as enjoyable to read as always.

When real money is being given to me by people, that changes things significantly.

I haven't finished Miasmon yet. The people I chose for the other site were merely testing it before the proper release, just as they're testing this game now. Eventually I would like to build up a community free of people who make me want to literally die, but there'd be no restrictions on who could play the game.

It's extremely frustrating and unnecessarily hurtful to hear my reactions derided like this... The reason that I talked about my 'hurt feelings' and such so much is because I'd been enduring Fig Hunter for literally *years* before it happened, and I was getting sick of it. What kind of behaviour frustrates you the most? Imagine enduring that from dozens or hundreds of people non-stop for like five or six years. Or if you're so strong and tough that no behaviour fazes you at all, imagine dozens of people kicking your shins non-stop for that time.

I tried to release a new version to alleviate a lot of my negative feelings about the site, but instead was met with completely unsubtle vitriol. This was at the time when my girlfriend was leaving me, I had zero friends, I was crippled by an anxiety disorder, I spent every day in front of my computer because I'd have panic attacks if I so much as went out of my front door, and I'd not made any money in ages so to say I was feeling 'bad' about all this would be a massive understatement.

Can you for a moment imagine what it's like to be in a situation like that? Then, to have a gift that you'd lovingly crafted, for free, for strangers, essentially as a desperate effort to save your own sanity, thrown back in your face, which they also spit in to underline their disgust?

But no. I'm sorry. I suppose I was just being a 'butt-hurt sissy' or whatever.

Anyway, being away from Fig Hunter for several months and having a new direction in life has changed a lot of things for me, and being handed real money for a change rather than doing everything entirely for free really would change things immensely.

Thanks for making my life just that little bit happier with your words, anyway.

The temperaments aren't moods like 'sad' or 'angry'... A better way to think of them might be:

- Reclusive and intense.
- Reclusive and laid-back.
- Assertive and commanding.
- Assertive and playful.

Oh, I didn't even notice that there was a test on that site! Maybe I'll see which incorrect type it gives me!
...Oh, it gave me type 4, but that's because I knew what the questions were getting at. It's also interesting that on page 2 - which I assume was filtered based on my choices from page 1 - the three sets of questions were clearly type 4, 5 and 9 ones in order to narrow down my type from one of those.

I can't say that I liked the writing style on that site either, though. I felt like I was being mocked or spoken down to and felt offended after reading about type 4; I wonder what type the writer is. People also said that about my own descriptions of the types a while ago, though! o_O

I also didn't like how many of the descriptions either focused around Jesus, American politicians, or films I've never seen and never will see, using these things as the entire basis for the explanation. It's not a good way to explain, I think.

I wouldn't say that SxSo is particularly desirable, as one myself! My lack of Sp makes me very dependent, terrified of growing up and having to fend for myself, because I simply don't have the instinctual 'talent' that other people do for fending for themselves. It also makes me very fragile, because I imagine Sp grants a degree of toughness, a shield, and I don't have that. I imagine that many of my emotional troubles - and my loneliness! - are due to being a picky type 4 SxSo type.

One of the pages about type 4 Sx or So mentioned that they are the typical 'starving artists', who live in an unheated flat working on their art because they simply refuse to get a bland office job to support themselves. That's me all over. I'm not going to be living in a mansion at any time in my life, that's for sure. o_O

Sp seems like it allows people to survive a whole lot easier, and to live more comfortable lives; I'd say that only at its extremes is it paranoid or self-centred.

It's now possible to choose your instinctual variants from the settings page, and this is a comment to see how it looks on comments!

'Average Girl' is a placeholder name for a generic opponent used for testing. There's nothing deeper to it than that.

I'm hoping to have it in the beta testing section by the end of the week! I'd upload it NOW, but there's essentially nothing to do other than equip clothes, so I'd like to add at least a little bit of gameplay first.

I was going to do entirely different graphics for the dialogue portraits... but then it occurred to me that I could indeed just reuse the battle models, which saves time and means that I can give everyone a portrait! So that's good!

I've probably saved WEEKS of work from using this VersaTile thing! Which is also good!1

I can barely understand this Myers-Briggs stuff myself... o_O
I've been struggling to remember all the terms, like 'dominant', 'auxiliary', 'tertiary' and 'inferior', and wrote this thing largely to try and help that knowledge sink in after reading over it dozens of times, and it going in one ear and out the other.
And I feel I did learn a bit by writing this, but my mind goes blank when reading over what I myself wrote; mainly the 'how to find out your functions from the four letters' bit.

I've been trying to read more about the functions in isolation, but it's confusing because I can relate to Fi a lot, but also to Fe a lot, and I don't know how much of that is because they both have things in common anyway and I'm mistaking my Fe for Fi and... anyway!

Some people on the personality forum on have a list of their own functions in their signature (like "Ni Fe Fi Ti Se Ne Te Si"), but I could not do that myself yet.

It's interesting that you do seem to keep getting those same enneatypes! And they do fit with what I know of you; the way you talk and things like that. Much more than something like, uh, 852 would, anyway. o_O
I mentioned that the way you talk reminds me of a young me in some ways, but having a 7 in there rather than my 5 would serve to 'take the edge off' in massive ways, leading me to be more analytical and reclusive, and you to be more, well, fun-loving and positive probably!

I prefer the lines this way, otherwise I would not have done them this way. Comments like "I don't like the way you did this" aren't exactly barrels of fun to hear.

If you haven't already, reading this about the ISFP might be enlightening; it goes over each of its four functions in detail: ∞ LINK ∞

I think and Inferior-type Te arising under stress - from what I read about INFP - leads to things like angry outbursts, or scathing criticism of other people, assuming that others are incompetent and generally being overly critical... but that article probably explains it better!
