{Creating a good game is hard, but that’s only half the battle. If you don’t market your game, chances are fewer people will end up playing it! To help you promote your video game, I created Indiedev Game Marketer, which is a free & open source WordPress plugin, forever free and forever without a premium version to buy.

Hi, I’m Sean Braganza! Currently Penning The Text Behind Daath Origins’ PR.

The science-fiction, RPG programming fanatic that lurks behind these walls of Black Lodge Games LLC. has been kind enough to let me introduce myself – and how I bear relevance to his three-year obsession that is Daath Origins.

I’m grateful; appreciate it, Jeff!

It’s likely that some of you that have found the Black Lodge Games website, and subsequently this guest blog post while scouring for press material on Daath Origins, recognize the long-winded nature of this text and are already scuttling for shelter for fear of it turning into another PR mail.

Fixing DAATH ORIGINS (Porting from RPG Maker XP to MKXP)

DAATH ORIGINS was supposed to launch on August 15, 2016, but was delayed due to the discovery of a major game breaking bug near the launch date. To this point, the bug has not been fixed and tracing the cause of the bug has stumped multiple seasoned programmers, myself included. It’s a worse case scenario that needs to be solved before a proper launch can occur. In order to help fix this bug, as well as other potentially undiscovered bugs, the plan is to take this complete game (minus the bugs) and bring it to Steam Early Access on September 15, 2017, to iron out all these issues.

36 Free Ground Textures – Diffuse + Normals 2048×2048

In 2014 I went on a few hikes and took a cheap digital camera with me. I mainly took pictures of the ground, such as dirt and rocks. Later I edited them to be seamless/tileable, made normal maps and attempted heightmaps as well. The majority of the textures are 2048×2048, although a few are smaller. There are 36 diffuse textures, with 88 texture files in total (counting diffuse, normals, and heightmap.)


Here is a jpg sample (downloads come as png) of a diffuse and normal texture from the pack (click on the image to see at 2048×2048):
