  1. The Battle Gem Ponies Combat Demo is Here!!

    GIF%2BMove%2BDraco%2BClaw%2BKO%2Bn%2BSwap%2B%2528P1%2529.gif

     

    If you aren't incredibly hyped right now, you really should be. This is a monumental occasion after all! After YEARS of behind-the-scenes struggle, TENS of THOUSANDS of dollars drained from life savings, MONTHS of delays, and an incomprehensible amount of time sitting in front of computers yelling "WHHHYYYYY"... Yotes Games is proud to present...

     

    The Battle Gem Ponies Combat Demo

     

    Our first public upload in 3 or 4 years after starting this entire project over after tragically losing every project file for the 2017 build. Since then this game has gone from a solo-indie project to a team-powered labor of love and it's looking all the better for it!

    We truly cannot wait to hear what you think of this battle system we're creating.

     

    Go ahead and give it a try!

    (It's playable on Android, Windows, Mac, and even Linux)

     

    Bugs are being noted as we march toward our Kickstarter in August. We'll be diving headfirst into remaking overworld gameplay for the next couple months, so your feedback on this half of the game will fuel us til then. Feel free to share BGP around with anyone you know that could be into this sorta thing. It's the start of something very fun over here...

     

    More updates to come!

    Battle Gem Ponies (April DevLog): Bug Hunters 2021 This is it! The home stretch! We're basically in like, the Beta of our Pre-Alpha if that inception makes sense. The biggest mysteries and implementation challenges are behind us as far as the scope of this demo is concerned. All that's left is to fix an incredibly long list of minor & major bugs we've been taking note of this whole time and make sure 99% of this game works (and looks) exactly as intended. Graphics. Pacing. Space-time Placing. All these things must be in near-perfect harmony before we put it out there to be judged enjoyed by the masses. Check the Yotes Blog for details on our bug hunting adventures!

    Battle Gem Ponies (Pre-Alpha)

    A Major Change of Plans... After some heartbreak, debate, accounting, re-planning, and interviewing new potential team members, we have officially decided to delay Battle Gem Ponies one more time. Stretching our personal budgets to the absolute limit and holding off until September while we build up the game in a more reasonable timeframe. We wanted a public demo out weeks ago and finally got to a state where we have all the features we want in, but we haven't had time to clean up the bugs and make sure it can make a good first impression. We can't re-announce the game after a 3-4 year silence and have new players immediately run into game-breaking issues. After everything we've been through to get here, we're not gonna let things play out like that. We're here to blow minds. We hope you can stay with us long enough to see this through. Some really exciting stuff is on the way for you guys. Get some new deadlines/goals for the project on the official blog.

    BGP February DevLog: Animating Attacks We're in the final stages of development for the Combat Demo! We're implementing as many attack & effect animations as possible to make a good first impression, and we're balancing the more complex gameplay mechanics we've finally got working.

    Battle Gem Ponies (January DevLog): Headfirst Into a the New Year! Battle Gem Ponies is gearing up for making a HUGE commotion all year long! We have some cleanup to do, but afterwards we're off to the races polishing things up. Kickstarter Drafts, Patreon makeovers, YouTuber contacts, battle engine redesigns, and more all get covered in this month's update! So come take a gander at the latest #GameDev Log: www.yotesgames.com

    Battle Gem Ponies (December DevLog): Sayonara, 2020! This year sure has been one big heck... But looking back, I'm proud of what we've managed to build since January. This game is miles further along than I ever could've reached on my own trying to solo dev. It's exciting to think about how much can be accomplished in the next 365 days with the full power of a development team and, if we succeed in May, thousands of dollars in crowdfunding support to hire a ton more helping hands and guarantee we finish the rest of development by year's end. Here at Yotes Games, spirits are high as we march right into 2021 like we own the place. (And with your continued support, we actually might!) Get some of the very last gamedev of 2020 over on the blog.
  12. Battle Gem Ponies Christmas Demo! (Available Now!!)

    1.gif?token-time=1610066201&token-hash=i_GFc6Eb1qaUsKp3XBUHIjMY1WQ1pSxGct9NplAWv6Y%3D
    Merry Christmas, everypony! We've been cooking up a treat for everyone supporting this game throughout this rough spot of a year.
     

    The time has come! Download the Battle Gem Ponies Christmas Demo on Itch.io using your Patreon login to get a download key for Windows, Mac, and Android!  The download page will only appear if you use the link above to get your key.

     

    Now before you dive in, let's reel back expectations once more. This is a super buggy work in progress that we're still polishing up for February

    Many features are still unfinished so you're likely to run into rough looking animation, strange audio issues, moves that don't work as expected, buttons that were supposed to be hidden, and crazy-looking placeholder text.

     

    We aim to release an update to this Patreon build on a bi-weekly basis next year, and begin releasing a public demo updated with new content every month starting February 2021.

     

    The Patreon exclusive demos will include prototype mechanics (sometimes with debug controls) and half-implemented ideas being worked on for upcoming public releases way down the line. So consider this an early-access pass to the same game build the devs are using for testing.

     

    Main additions this time around are the Pony Customization & Battle Setup Menus!

     

    The complete version of this game is coming (eventually) to the App Store, Google Play, Amazon Apps, Itch.io, and other PC platforms. In May we'll be launching a crowdfunding campaign to raise enough money to ensure we finish development in a timely manner (by hiring a lot more help). We truly have our hearts set on finally being finished by the end of the coming year.

     

    We thank you for understanding that this is a sneak peek at the tangled web we're currently attempting to turn into a quilted masterpiece. Now, as a Christmas gift straight from our hearts to yours, enjoy the newest playable build of Battle Gem Ponies!
