Starlight Shores is coming to a beach near you on October 30th 🏖
Starlight Shores is a cozy romantic tale about summer love from Delphinium Interactive. Drawing inspiration from their own experiences with growing up in a tourist town, Delphinium set out to create a story about reconnecting with friends by a bonfire on the beach. 😎
In Starlight Shores, you are invited to a weekend getaway in the paradise town of Seaside by your childhood friend Theo. It's been months since you last saw her and she's incredibly excited to spend the weekend together with you. 🤗 Her roommate Lena and your friend Alec will join in on the fun as well. It sounds like you're in for a great time until an uninvited guest arrives...
You can check the game out on Itch right now. And yes, the game is launching on October 30th, 2020! 🎆
Court elves, ancients and other creatures in Price for Freedom: Avarice ⚔
During my travels around the Interwebs, I sometimes discover these amazing games that I then have no choice but to rant and rave about. And as you probably guessed, this is one of those games. 😍
Price of Freedom: Avarice is a top-down role-playing game, hardcore in both senses of the word. 🤭 Featuring a fantasy story with over 250,000 words right now, the game combines an old-school RPG with a mechanically satisfying combat system. ⚔

The bundle features amazing NSFW games like Dominatrix Simulator, The Last Sovereign, and The Couch. Valued at $99 normally, these games can now be yours for any price point you feel comfortable with!
Save big and lewd it up with this incredible bundle! 😄
Don't get wrapped up in Wrapturous Adventure 🩹
Yui is a treasure hunter who has come across a previously unknown pyramid, buried under millennia of desert sand. Unluckily for her, the pyramid is still inhabited by a Pharaoh Queen! Yui is quickly captured, stripped from her clothes, and wrapped in bandages. 🩹
Her movements limited to hopping around, Yui must now find a way to escape the pyramid while avoiding being captured by the Queen. Likewise, it wouldn't be wise to be captured by any of the Queen's roaming slaves, pits of living slime, or other nasty traps. 😬
Featuring a total of 54 unique capture and punishment scenes, this game in pre-alpha already has plenty of content to offer! 💦
Check out the demo on Itch right now.
Designing a game around dancing 💃
Besides working full-time in the video games industry and writing this newsletter, I’m also trying to build a visual novel and character management sim called Up There They Love. 💦
This week I showed a prototype of the night gameplay to a friend of mine, who is an actual game designer:
He had a lot of feedback for me, most importantly that my game’s mechanics were centered around control instead of cooperation. 😱
With his help and that of another gamedev, I was able to redesign my mechanics around cooperation. I outlined how I approached the redesign in this thread:
I’m currently working on turning this design into a digital prototype, which I will share once it’s actually playable. 😅
Thank you for reading and I hope to see you next time!
