I don't think keeping a list of spammers is going to accomplish anything. The names are probably generated randomly.

I very rarely get spam on GMail. Or, rather, spam very rarely gets through the spam filter. Just push 'report spam' on any spam mail that gets through.

Thank you Merrak, although not all of the names are randomly generated. I’ve found quite a couple of these scammers via Google using the same messages.

Poppytail 5 News:

I have scrapped most of my work so far because it didn't work so well and then it came to the point where it would be easier to start over making the code behind it, but then I decided to duplicate my game and start fresh because how I had programmed it before was slow, inefficient and has never even worked properly.

I have kept the one minigame I had finished (Jawlock's)  and I've decided to make the minigames before anything else. I need to get some of the main game's final art done though, because my friend is working on the characters and I need to get some images of my current characters that aren't so large (they're large enough to cause some storage issues with Stencyl which I still have to figure out).

Also, some of the characters my friend is working on for the game's Chapter 2 are Shyyon and Vehicle Dummy.

Shyyon is another papillon character. He is meant to be quite small compared to other characters (like Liz-Liz is meant to be)  and works in a similar way to Jawlock, Nursina and Exister. However, when you run into him, he won't kill you on the spot unless you're in your starting room. However, when he is in your starting room you cannot see him, so you'll either have to keep an eye on him or make a habit of moving outside your current room fast enough to avoid his attack.

Vehicle Dummy is a crash test dummy-like character in a giant car. She waits in her own room, called the Simulation Room, until she decides to attack. Vehicle Dummy will make a noise and then charge down a hallway into your starting room. However, like characters from Poppytail 4 or Pixeltail, she'll have more motivation to attack if you die to her more often, otherwise she'll attack less.

VD is also important story-wise. Poppytail 1-4 and about half of Pixeltail focus on what happens after the Quake of '86 between the monsters and the Creators, but Poppytail 5 focuses on this part of the story a little less and focuses more on the pre-Quake parts of the timeline (which has as much relevance as the post-Quake monster-Creator rivalry period and afterwards in the period in which the main games take place, mostly focusing on one particular family which is a major part of the story). Pixetail also focuses on some pre-Quake story, but more of another family who is important to the story.

Anyway, hope you all have a great day!

Yahoo: Nicole Benoite Marois and a new scammer: #30) Amancio Ortega.

Gmail: Nicole Benoite Marois. Again. This is about the fourth email they've sent to me.

Is it just me having this problem? My email addresses were only on Stencyl and Game Jolt. I'm thinking of getting another email address to use for Stencyl and Game Jolt now.

Three new scammers from Yahoo to add to the list:

26) Melanie Carrier-Vernand
27) Frank Yacouba/Obowo Patrick (he starts the email with one, sender title shows up as another)
28) Mary John
29) Moses Kekana

Leena also sent another email to Yahoo

Gonna check Gmail.

Edit: Yacouba Frank was on Gmail. Except they finally decided on a name and kept it consistent.

If you intend to make this a series of games, maybe combine them as Space Pirate: GoldSpace?

If anyone needs my emails, here’s some binary with my emails in it. Translating it does not give you directly what they are though. Please PM if you want my email address.

Mohammed Hossain has sent something to Gmail too. Maybe he’s the only one who found the addresses here or on GJ. Deleted it now.

Edit: HOSSAIN WAS NOT THE ONLY ONE. Fernandez, Monika, Duong, Mabel, Jhorge, Sikindar, Nicole, Musa, John and Kadi all sent things to Gmail. They were in another folder.

Also some new scammers:
23) Gloria Paul
24) George Gumel
25) Devid Ben

I definitely made a mistake here.

It's certainly possible. In general, you shouldn't have your email address in a public place. If you need to communicate with somebody via email, send your address to them in a private message.

Thank you Justin. Although it could have been entering random addresses into emails and seeing if they’re active accounts. Considering the amount of views Poppytail games get regularly, I doubt it’s Game Jolt.

I was just messing around with PT3 and I found a bug. To get this bug you must get an Overachiever Ending (easy way to do this is press “6” in the game’s menu, press enter, wait for a while until the minigame ends and then keep pressing the up key in the final minigame). After the scene transition to the ending screen, press enter to begin the slow scene transition to the menu. Keep pressing the = button while the scene is transitioning and the game will let you set the number on the bottom right corner of the screen above the normal maximum limit (100). I got up to 603, but after a while the game realises and sets it back to a lower number. This may also be possible by pressing the - button to get the number lower than 1, but I haven’t tried it.

The purpose of this number is to check of Auto or Abe or neither should appear. If anyone still cares about this (I doubt it), Abe will spawn if the number is 15 and Auto will appear if the number is 70.

Poppytail 1’s Chapter 6 could’ve looked good in Pixeltail, but now the hidden chapters of the first four games are going to be additional rooms in pre-existing nightmares, like so:

PT1’s Chapter 6- Room 2 of Poppytail Challenge
PT2’s Chapter 6- Room 2 of Easter Bunny Challenge
PT2’s Chapter 7- Room 2 of Gremlin Girl Challenge
PT3’s Chapter of No Escape- Room 2 of Snarly Dog Challenge
PT4’s Chapter 6- Room 2 of Lizard Hunter Challenge
PT4’s Chapter 7- Room 2 of Enderguy Challenge

Couple with some disorientating shaders, I think this could be a nice way to somehow include the first four games’ hidden chapters which won’t be main chapters.

Hello everyone,

I am probably going to remove my email addresses from my signature here because when I checked my Yahoo! email, I found 24 messages from 22 different scammers.

https://www.google.com.au/amp/s/www.onlinethreatalerts.com/article/2017/6/13/beware-of-att-yahoo-mail-box-has-exceeded-the-storage-limit-phishing-scam/amp/

The link above is to an article I found that has the exact message one scammer (pretending to be Yahoo!) sent me.

Here are the people who emailed me:
New scammers:
1) Mohammed Hossain
2) (Deleted Email, Don’t Remember Name)
3) Emile Kenold
4) Fernandez Dale (2 emails)
5) Maria Kunde
6) Mabel Ondikwa
7) Monika (No Last Name)
8- Dương Thị Thu Thủy
9) Y.A.H.O.O.! (Fake email address)
10) Kadi Balla
11) Biyu Fung Chi
12) Inga Beale
13) Marlaine Kabore
14) Musa Kamal
15) Margret C. Ettie
16) Sohail Ahmed (2 emails)
17) Jhorge James
18) Sikindar Sikindar
19) Nicole B. Marois
20) John Paul
21) Sali Zama
22) Leena (No Last Name)

I suspect that maybe these people are finding my email from here or Game Jolt maybe? Should I be worried about this?

Thank you,
NickamonPoppytail

Some more art for Pixeltail:

1) Lizard Hunter*
2) Enderguy
3) Pink Poppy
4) Wicked Poppytail

*Liz-Liz is missing due to being a separate enemy in the game. He was able to be in both PT1 and PT3 by going through the middle door of the Pathway Room off-screen during the events of PT2.

Hi everyone,

This is an update on Poppytail 5, which I haven’t done for a while since starting Pixeltail. Mainly due to lack of motivation. The reason why I haven’t been motivated to make PT5 was because I was not seeing a lot of progress and I made a mistake and I’m completely reworking the mini map feature.

To me the game looks quite crappy to be honest. It’s not properly playable, the placeholder art mixed with 3D sprites is just ugly, and this is just making me think that this looks like a terrible game. I would even say the first four games looked much better than this even when some people are still coming up to me and telling me it looks like the graphics from the first game were made in MS Paint.

Due to all of this placeholder crap, I’ve decided to not release PT5 in chapters like I was going to before, but I’m going to make the full game and release that. Same with Pixeltail. I’ve now got another person making some of the 3D graphics on Blender (the other characters were made on Autodesk Fusion 360), and I’m going to be mostly making pixel graphics and PT5’s soundtrack.

This isn’t the first time I’ve had lack of motivation for the series. I doubt any of you had a go at the third game, but tile collisions don’t exist. They are set, and they’re the same tiles used anywhere else, but they don’t work. Luckily, characters still work and you cannot exit the scene, but for a while I just couldn’t figure out what to do until I realised the Poppytail story had a valid excuse from Poppytail 2 (thank god for Simulation Rooms).

Anyway, I’m still working on Pixeltail, but hopefully I’ll be motivated enough to do Poppytail 5 soon. After that, I’ve got Pixeltail (expect this to take a little longer, each save is meant to be about 4-6 hours of gameplay, compared to at the minimum 20 minutes for each main game). After that, I’ll work on The Poppytales. I know this isn’t the right forum thread to talk about this, but I was going to make the game in “parts”, but it depends if I feel like continuing the game once I’ve finished if there’ll be a part two, three, etc. I may not because what I’ve made so far for the series is only a fraction of the story I want to tell.

I hope that PT5 and PXT won’t be as bad as the previous games.
