I have not posted in a while. I have news. I have not worked on my games recently (excluding Easter Fun), which I will start getting back into after a couple of weeks.

I want to get Poppytail 5 done this year. It has been nearly a year since I started and I have had to do other things in my life instead of making progress on the game. I plan to release the full game on GameJolt by the 24th of December, 2018, or a year after I officially released Poppytail 3.

I'm working on Chapter 4 at the moment. I'm thinking of working on some minigames soon. The minigames in PT5 are not exclusive to the new characters. Pink Poppy, Auto, Wicked Easter Bunny and Cheesestick will be getting their own minigames too (to give a few examples).

Still haven't modelled Ennuyeux or Summer-Rose. Still need to do those. I have a plan here which I want to try and follow to get my games done by:

Poppytail 5 (December 24th, 2018)
One Million (January 30th, 2019)
Pixeltail (October 12th, 2019)
A Game About Trimming Hedges: Final Version (October 20th, 2019)
The Poppytales (June 19th, 2020)

The dates listed above are not final. I'm hoping to get my games done either before or actually on those dates. Let's see how I go.

About the AGATH update. It's going to be canon to the Poppytail series. So will One Million. I won't state how they link together. When the Final Version of AGATH and the first version of OM release, you can find the links on your own if you're thinking of getting the games. I want to release the AGATH update after Pixeltail. It may be easier to find the links if one has completed Pixeltail first or at least knows the game's canon storyline.

New Easter Fun update coming out tomorrow morning: the Dash Update!

This update adds in nine new characters: Purple Shirt Guy, Rabby, Ghost and Distort from A Game About Trimming Hedges, as well as five other new characters.

I think I mentioned another small project I was making a while ago (called One Million). I haven't worked on it, but it is nearly finished and will hopefully come out soon. Five of the game's playable characters also make appearances here: Hood, Chocbar, Bunny, Midnight and Daggercat.

You can also move at twice your normal speed in Insanity/Eggxtinction mode. If anyone still does not know how to access this game mode (also available in the Insanity, Crossover and Eggxtinction updates), type INSANITY into the character select screen before selecting your character.

This update is paid, by the way, although it's only for 50 cents. If you want a GameJolt key to play it (Windows only, sorry), then just PM me.

New Characters:

Purple Shirt Guy (A Game About Trimming Hedges)

Rabby (A Game About Trimming Hedges)

Ghost (A Game About Trimming Hedges)

Distort (A Game About Trimming Hedges)

Hood (One Million)

Chocbar (One Million)

Bunny (One Million)

Midnight (One Million)

Daggercat (One Million)

Hey dear admins, I tried bumping up my elder post, no idea how to do it, sorry if I'm breaking any rules here! Love you! (How do I do that? Can I even do that?)

No, you can’t I don’t think.

I won’t post anything on YouTube for a while because I’m on holidays and accessing Stencyl through mobile data (as I have done many times before). The screenshots may make it a little difficult to illustrate how the game looks as everything that isn’t just a still frame has a frame showing every 40 milliseconds (in this case, just Poppytail and the scratch effect). Video would be a much easier way to show how the game looks.

Wow, that's a persistent bug! I don't know how to capture video on Windows. I know it can be done. For Linux there's a tool called "recordMyDesktop". Maybe it's available for Win/Mac, too.

I’ll check it out soon.

That's a huge download. From the looks of the screenshots you have so far, I bet you can scale the images down and still keep the details.

I’ll see if I can do that.

I wouldn't expect the art demo to be an effective way to promote your game. Considering how hard it is to get people's attention on the internet, I'd do everything possible to minimize the number of steps someone has to take to see what you want them to. Why not upload a video to YouTube instead?

The Art Demo was not intended as a way to promote it. I wanted a way to show you all what the game looks like because it’s harder to see from an iPhone camera. I still can’t take screenshots of my games without them being completely black. I also have no idea how to film what’s on the screen. I guess I could set up a YouTube channel, but I do not know how the process works.

I have released an "Art Demo" for The Poppytales on GameJolt (because I could not come up with a better name for it).

This will allow you to access everything seen in the two videos from two posts ago: a Poppytail with some finished animations that can move, and three level backgrounds that change when you press enter. That's it. It's a lot easier to see what is being done through the Art Demo than what can be seen on two crappy videos taken on an iPhone.

Note: The original images are the size of a normal laptop screen, so they are scaled down here.

The Art Demo can be accessed here:

Also, this is the largest of any of the games I have made. I'm referring to the file size of the Art Demo only, with GameJolt telling me it's 130MB in size.

I made some backgrounds. Here is one for Fluoride’s fight, along with a scratch effect and grain shader. (I apologise for G-G barking in the background).

Video 2: This time I included backgrounds for Virus Poppytail’s and Classic Poppytail’s fights (this area may be recognised by those who played the first game), and one for SLiM.

Also made a tent for King Ted. He can't just fall asleep on the ground like he does in Easter Fun!

You could also publish this to the Stencyl Arcade.

Can you provide some more details? Are all of your students using the one account?

Firstly, Pirate Wray has died. Pirate was one of my dogs, and the inspiration for many characters within my book and many of my games. He was put to sleep a few days ago, on Monday afternoon (24th September). He was nearly sixteen and a half years old when he died (29th April 2002-24th September 2018).

I am sorry to hear that.
All the best!

Thank you

I haven’t been on Stencyl much. I’ve been mostly inactive for a few reasons.

Firstly, Pirate Wray has died. Pirate was one of my dogs, and the inspiration for many characters within my book and many of my games. He was put to sleep a few days ago, on Monday afternoon (24th September). He was nearly sixteen and a half years old when he died (29th April 2002-24th September 2018).

Pirate as Wicked Ulfytail from Poppytail 4: Special Edition and Easter Fun

From The World of Elecreatures, Pirate inspired the character of the same name, as well as his clones “Pirate Clone” and “Lucky Pirate”. From Poppytail, he inspired all versions of the titular antagonist Poppytail as well as all versions of Easter Bunny. His head appeared on the characters Wicked Ulfytail, Wicked Pirate Bunny, Pi-Bun and Pappy Heads from PT4:SE, as well as Whinytail (that purple dog in the final backyard of A Game About Trimming Hedges). A poorly edited image of him making him look like Poppytail is also my Gmail icon for

My current Gmail icon.

Because I have also been sick, I haven’t been working on models for Ennuyeux and Summer Rose. They will come soon, but not now. I will work on finishing a small side project I’ve been working on, a game called One Million, that may come out in the next few days. After that, I’ll work on PT5 and the art for various characters and attacks for The Poppytales.

End Prototype

I guess the Creators just quickly threw something together. Despite his appearance being similar to Cinder, he is a prototype of Enderguy.

Still to do: Petal, Ennuyeux, Tripper, Summer-Rose. Petal will be a human-like character with a lot of flower-petal features, Ennuyeux will be a cat with glasses, Tripper will be a crocodile-type creature, and Summer-Rose will be an anthropomorphic flower.

Nope Nope (Chapter 7)

Banana Prototype (Chapter 9)

Still to do: Petal, Ennuyeux, End Prototype, Tripper and Summer-Rose.
