Night Games Wiki being rebuilt

I just finished installing Dokuwiki on the webserver where I’m hosting this blog and the forum. It’s a it less user-friendly than Wikia, but there’s no risk of it suddenly getting removed.

I exported the contents of the old wiki when it was taken down. The syntax is a little different, so it’ll take some time for me to get everything copied into the new one.

The wiki should be accessible at the address below:

http://www.silverbardgames.com/wiki

There are only a few pages right now, but I’ll try to get everything copied over today. Once everything is back to the state the old wiki was, I’ll spend some time updating and organizing everything.

Bugfix and Premium Art Sample

Hi everybody!

So some good news and some bad news. The bad news is that I found some severe bugs in the Most recent release. If you previously downloaded the game, make sure to pick up the bugfix. I sincerely apologize for the inconvenience.

The good news is unrelated, but you can pretend it’s part of the apology. AimlessArt put together the above samples of the art in the Premium version, so you guys can get a taste before deciding whether to support us. The art in the game is all uncensored.

Night Games – Enter the Ninja Girl [Patron/Premium Build]

Hi everyone!

The new build is available for all Patreon supporters, and it’s a big one. If you are a Patreon supporter, you can download the game here: https://www.patreon.com/silverbardgames

If you are a $5+ supporter, there’s something special for you. We are introducing the new Premium build of Night Games, which will release in parallel with all new Patron updates. The Premium build is mechanically identical, but contains a bunch of additional high-quality art. If you’re interested, consider checking it out.

This is the first update since the forum went live, so let’s make the most of it. If you’re having trouble downloading the game, just message me through Patreon. However, if you have any bug reports or want to talk about the game, please speak up on the forum here: http://www.silverbardgames.com/forum

Please. I’m desperate for activity on the forums that is not from Russian spambots. It’s also a lot easier for me to keep track of and respond to forum posts than comments on the blog.

Expect Night Games Update Friday

I’ve put off this update long enough. I finished the content I originally planned for this update more than a month ago, but during testing, I kept finding things I wanted to change, and thus the scope of the update has ballooned.
As of last night, I’m calling this update officially done and will stop adding new content until I finish testing and release it. In addition to a totally new opponent, there are enough major gameplay changes that I’ll need a few days of solid testing.
Unless I run into something major during testing, I plan to release the update on Friday for Patreon supporters. There will also be something special for $5+ Patrons, but I’ll provide more details about that when the update goes up.

Night Games Wiki is Down

The Night Games Wiki has been taken down by Wikia for adult content. I should be able to host my own wiki using the same webserver I use for the blog, so I don’t have to deal with similar ToS issues in the future. I’m going to look into a good wiki software to use. In the meantime, I’m going to see if I can recover the old wiki information and post it in the forum so people can find it.

Trounce Tickle Tease

Hi all,

I have a little surprise for everyone. Last year I put together a little strip wrestling game with Rock Paper Scissors mechanics to get some practice working in Ren’Py. Since the game turned out better than I expected, I decided to commission some art and release it publicly.

Here it is:

In this simple little game, you and your childhood friend Ashley engage in a wrestling match where the loser of each round must remove an article of clothing. Since you’ve known each other so long, you realize she’s vulnerable to some unconventional tactics, like tickling and seduction. Turns out she’s planning similar strategies.

Fighting beats Tickling, Tickling beats Seduction, and Seduction beats Fighting.

The game is quick, simple, and unless there’s a lot of demand to add content, it’s done. I don’t plan on adding anything else to the game unless it’s much more popular than I expected. Even then, I’ll probably just add some more endings. This is never going to balloon out into some massive Night Games size monstrosity.

I’ll make another board on the forum for this, so that’ll be a good place to discuss the game, ask questions, or report bugs.

All the art in this game was paid for by Patreon contributions. If you like the sort of game content I put out, please consider pledging a few bucks a month to help make it happen.

I have a forum now (oh god, what have I done?)

Hi everyone,

Eagle-eyed visitors will notice I changed up the navigation bar a bit. There’s a new link up there labeled FORUM.

Since I’ve barely been utilizing my hosting, I decided to create a free forum, which should make it easier to keep track of and address bug reports and suggestions. Now I do read every single comment you guys post here, even if I don’t always respond. However I often don’t have time to address the issues right away and it can take me a while to scroll through all the comments to find the bug report again. Having bugs reported in a forum will make it easier for me to keep track of which ones I’ve addressed and responded to.

But I’m not just making the forum for bug reporting. I try to keep track of all the active adult games forums so I can keep track of discussion related to my games and new releases. I’ve noticed that there aren’t really a lot of such forums and each one tends toward specialties. Even general forums like Fenoxo’s, ULMF, or Hongfire each have a noticeable style of game the community favors.

My games don’t fit particularly well with most of those communities, and I often see other developers with similar issues. If my forum gets enough users and traffic to get off the ground, I’m sure it will trend towards some adult game culture, but hopefully it’ll be something new.

I’ve never administered a forum before, so maybe this will go horribly wrong, but who knows? If you have a bug to report, something you want to discuss, or a game you want to promote, I encourage you to register an account and make a new topic.
