Spiritual Sequel (Huniecam) is going to be released in 1-2 months, who's hyped?
Also, Huniepop thread I guess.
I don't even care if they use a different art style, I just hope whatever they settle on isn't as garbage as it currently is
also no idea if it'll actually be fun. the draw to huniepop for me isn't the writing or anything like that. it's the bejeweled gameplay mixed with light dating sim elements. I get fucking lost in both those types of games, and huniepop does both of them well enough that the hours just fly by when I'm playing it
I sometimes wonder if there's a way to invest in indie developers at a small scale.
Is there a lot of paperwork required to become publicly traded?
Is Tim Schaffer the only one who's allowing for "investing"? I don't like any of his shitty games.
There's no way he hasn't realized he's fucked up already. He even released multiple polls asking about the style and the majority wanted the old style. And he tweeted once "Time to work on the game with the art style no one likes"
Who gives a fuck about the art style?
The real travesty is that it's a fucking tycoon sim that will turn your waifu into a slut.
Still holding out hope that Tiffany isn't in it.
Looks like somebody is finally realizing that it's not about what he wants.
His reputation has taken a hit for sure. Remember how he and Huniepop was raved before Huniecam was shown?
Him being fucking anal with this horrific artstyle should hopefully humble him a little bit. (I know very well Huniepop is nothing to write home about)
The art style is a big turn off for me, but turning every girl into a literal camwhore is just awful. It doesn't fit with so many of their personalities
I don't see how any one could get the kind of backlash he got from showing hunie cam, and refuse to even negotiate on it. The heart pupils for example, people hate that they're there 24/7, and he refused to even talk about removing them.
Not to mention every character looks the exact same except reskinned
"Full time, just me. But 4 artists, 1 composer, >10 voice actresses. Fun fact? Other than me and composer, all female "
I cant see it being very succesfull with this art style.
I guess the success of Huniepop put him on a high horse. Hopefully this can bring him down a peg. The 24/7 heart pupils is a fucking atrocity. I mean I like em in certain situations but all the damn time? You better get out of here with that shit.
I'd be tempted to buy it for the writing and voice acting, but I think I'll hold out until it goes on sale. I want to show him that he should have listened when people hated the style
Exactly, during sex or hell, even just arousal, would be okay. But all the time is fucking ridiculous. Not to mention the girls basically look all the same just reskinned
I doubt hes like phil fish.
huniepop sold x10 more than most indies so he should be relatively happy, which also enabled him to make an entire game with shit art that will sell like poo.
This isn't even creative though. It's just taking preestablished characters, turning them all into whores even though it didn't fit a lot of their personalities, and gave it a shit art style.
I mean yeah it's his decision, but you need to listen to feedback. If he even acts surprised that this bombs he can go fuck himself
Oh don't get me wrong. I'm not buying the game either solely because of the art.
Who has that baby grinch comparison picture?
If he want's the art that way, then let him. He'll see the sales numbers and compare them to hunie pop and realize that he fucked up and if he wants to make more and make a profit, he's going to have to not use such a fucked up art style.
What do I know though, I'm neither an artist or video game maker, just another fag with an opinion.
gamur gurl obviously is an attention whore.
Jessie's best friend, speaks for itself.
Always follows Jessie's prodding.
Basically a slut already.
The only ones who don't fit are Audrey, Tiffany, and maybe Kyanna (why would a reformed mother whore herself out).
Because it's not weeb enough for Japan.
>I mean I like em in certain situations but all the damn time?
Honestly, heart pupils are basically a meme these days. They appear everywhere in doujins.
Fucking finally, I'm tired so seeing the shitty as fuck art of it posted on here. It'll be great to see it blow up in that arrogant assholes face for choosing to do it despite outcry.
I don't think he cares about sales though since he already said he's giving it away for free to like half of the playerbase.
I'm guessing this is just a side project for him so he wants to do his own thing (he's said over and over it's not Huniepop 2).
>He actually thinks people were interested in his game beyond the initial fap-bait that happened to have an alright minigame behind it
>He thinks it being a satire is more important than art that you can at least semi-jack it to.
Pirate out of sheer spite and discontent over the artstyle, and if the gameplay isn't absolutely stellar(which it won't be) this thing is going to tank harder than most games.
What bothers me more is the whole package. The heart pupils, the reskinning how you say and the blatant disregard for the characters personalities relating to this. If he would have used new characters, I wouldn't be too anal about it but even so, the whole thing just reeks of arrogance and laziness.
>art style gone to shit
>characters gone to shit
>safe for steam and twitch, no uncensored version
>gameplay elements shown so far look just as/even more shallow that an average Facebook timewaster
That's the thing I think a lot of people haven't picked up on. Even the original writer on it had the impression it was supposed to be a proper dating-type game as opposed to a satire of those sort of things.
So yeah, the guy is making this as a mockery of your common 'waifu'-type games, so if you go into it with that state of mind then you're going to get your jimmies severely rustled.
Reminder that Beli is actually a slut.
>She wasn't an attention whore at all though.
Dude, she played fighting games and MMOs. You can give her an NES controller and she gushes over how 'rare' it is.
She's a gurl gamur who streams on Twitch for attention.
>If he would have used new characters, I wouldn't be too anal about it but even so, the whole thing just reeks of arrogance and laziness.
I think he's just using already established characters so he can be "creative" with this project, considering if he made this with entirely new characters pretty much no one would buy it
>yfw Beli being a slut was foreshadowed all along
>But waifufags took it the wrong way and reasoned that she was only a slut for you
I believe that goes for all those goody goody types. Holding themselves to such a high standard waiting for that one man who will make them degrade themselves in ways she couldn't believe.
True but before this I would have trusted a product from this guy before he went full dummy.
huniepop is a bad game, as a dating sim it has no plot and it's more just sharing personal info with the girls
as a puzzle it's just bejewelled with some really hamfisted RPG element
and as a porn there is barely any of it and most can be described by leaky vaginas on screen
most of the time i feel like people only care because it's pseudo weeb quality offended everybody
>best girl becomes drug addict
>we ruined her in Pop
>she'll not return in Pop2
Will likely OD between Cam and then
It's a freaking puzzle game with some lewd, do you watch porn for a story?
Why didn't you save her?
I don't understand why it is that people here like Audrey.
People will come up with their excuses, but I'm just assuming that /v/ likes her because her VA voicewhored for /v/ more than the other ones that did.
She actually had some character development and actually seemed to open up by the time you sleep with her, but that's just my opinion.
She even shows a bit of disappointment when you leave the morning after.
Reading that breaks my heart.
Yup, knew that as well. We completely ruined her.
Wish alpha mode had a bit more character interaction.
;_;We may never hear that innocent laugh or see her smile ever again...
That was before he revealed the artstyle.
I was hype when he announced his project then went flaccid when he showed this.
Personally, I love her because of how ridiculous she is as a character. Maybe it's a thing for trying to getting a person like her to see that life isn't as shitty as she claims.
Maybe it's just Helga syndrome. Who knows?
Only other one I have, made by one of the Huniepop artists.
I'll probably grab it depending on what the final gameplay looks like and the price.
Couldn't care less about what the art looks like since i'm not a moron that thinks graphics matter more than gameplay.
>worst girl turned into a crackwhore
That's not Nikki or Lola.
Shame most of Audrey's stuff is pretty tame compared to the others. Maybe, if she lives past Cam, she'll get some nice lewd in Pop2.
Tiffany > Celeste > Kyu = Jessie > Aiko > Nikki > Shit = Audry = Momo = Lola
goddamn i don't find seamonkeys attractive but that voice
>tfw no lewd talking abingoboingo kwek kwek flip gf
