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.

This is a bit later than I planned, due to being sick this weekend. As a result, I haven’t done as much testing as usual. Please let me know if you run into issues.

Update not quite done, but coming soon

Hello players.

I was hoping to have the next update done before the end of the month, but I’m going to miss that deadline by a day or two.

A lot of people with 720p displays have been complaining about how the UI displays (or fails to display) at that size. I realized I don’t actually have enough scalable vertical components to fit that screen height, so I’ve needed to move some UI elements around. It’s taking me a little longer than planned.

I will definitely have the update finished and released before Persona 5 comes out on the 4th (for obvious reasons).

[Public Release] Night Games – That Update With Sprites

Good News Everyone!

It’s been a week since the last Patron Update, so it’s now available to everyone. I’m celebrating with a small glass of cheap bourbon. This is the first update since AimlessArt joined the team, and if the Patreon is any judge people are quite excited about it.

If you were planning to support us on Patreon, you probably would have done so already to get the early update. However maybe you just found the game, or you were waiting to try the game before committing. Regardless, if you like the game please consider supporting us on Patreon so we can make it better. There are also some new Patron tiers, so take a look even if you are already a supporter.

Note that this version includes bugfixes I made during the week. So you may want to redownload the update even if you grabbed the Patron version already.

[Patron Release] Night Games – That Update With Sprites

At long last, the new update for Night Games is available to Patreon supporters. If you are a patron, head over to my Patreon page to download the update. If you aren’t a supporting yet, this may be a good time to start. In addition to AimlessArt’s great character sprites, we’ve done a ton of work on the UI. I think it looks great.

If you can’t or don’t want to support us on Patreon, this update will be available to everyone in about a week. Also, if you don’t mind some shameless shilling, we’ve recently added some higher Patreon tiers with rewards based on AimlessArt’s work.
