October is here, so let’s have an Animal Crackers update!
My goal was to finish the game today, but that sadly has not happened. That said, I worked very hard as if I were going to finish today, and based on my progress I am very close to being finished with the development of this game. I’m basically in the debugging process, as well as the engine optimization process.
What is the engine optimization process? Basically I’m trying to find every line of code that’s redundant or inefficient and recode those portions of the game. This ultimately will reduce lag, and that will lead to a better gaming experience at the end of the day.
I’ve been keeping checklists of everything that needs to happen, and it’s a really great feeling to see more and more outstanding tasks get checked off. There’s very little left for me, but I’m going to be pretty busy for the rest of this week and the next! I’m actually hopping about the Eastern United States a little bit, so my availability for coding is pretty much nonexistent.
Anyway, that has been your Animal Crackers update of the day! Thanks for following the development of the project, and I hope you will get to enjoy the final result!
P.S. I’ve been asked this so here is the official answer: the game will be 100% free to play. No ads, no funny business. Just you and the game. :)
A game progess update! ;v; I’ve been devoting most of my free time on getting all the art done for our game, whew, and I still got lots more to do. We’re not in the final stretch yet but we’re getting there!

"A manifestation of our idiot blood!"
YAYY I’m so excited this is out!! QvQ
Me and a ton of amazing artists contributed to this fanbook all about the anime Uchouten Kazoku! I’m so honored and excited to be apart of this fanbook with everyone, Uchouten is such a lovely series and it’s equally lovely to meet other people who love it too ;x; If you like the series please check this out! And if you haven’t, now is a good chance as ever to watch it!
And thank you so much Aho Nabe team for putting this all together!
Thanks so much for the patience everyone! All of them are shipped out so you should receive them soon, or have already gotten them! ;v; Ahh I learned a lot from making this zine and I’m still super excited that I made it happen. I’ll put them up in the store again when I can.
Speaking of shop, I’ll also be shipping on Saturdays instead of Monday/Tuesday!

getting into the groove after starting school and doing other projects!
Yay Pikmin zines are here!! They turned out nice and I’m excited to package and ship them out! Again, it’ll take about 1-2 week to essemble/ship everything, especially for orders that ordered other items along with the zine. Just keep an eye out in your emails if you ordered one to know when yours ships, and thank you everyone again!!
Pikmin zine preorders are closed! Thanks so so much, I didn’t expect to get as much support as I did and I’m super happy to share the zine with everyone! ;v;
I get the zines tomorrow and if all goes well, I’ll possibly start shipping them out late next week or so! I start school next week so it might take longer to assemble everything.
Here are some ink and watercolor doodles that’ll go in the orders, although I like them a lot so I might keep one for myself hehe.
I finished chapter 1 of my webcomic yesterday and I’m really really excited!! I’ve gotta get a site and do a few more other things for it, and then I’ll finally be able to start posting it ;v; stay tuned!
And also photos of packaging and prints for Pikmin zine that are still for preorder in shop!
aaaa another stationery set, a dream’s sky! Comes with 5 sheets + 5 envelopes + 5 stickers. I’ve been wanting to do this one for a while and finally got around to it!
ALSO I beat Professor Layton VS Ace Attorney last weekend too!! I haven’t been able to draw anything for it yet but I hope to soon, I loved it a whole bunch ;__; It’s a dream come true
Anyhoo doodles and sparkley stickers! The sparkling is hard to get a good shot of
Thank you!! the chase part of the fight was so long and nerve wracking because of the music TT TT also I have no idea what it is and it’s kinda scary since it didn’t really die, I thought it was a sap or melted gold version of the water wraith!
The rest of my zipper bag designs came in today, so now all my bags are finally here!! I’ll be shipping the remaining preorders tomorrow, thanks for your patience!
I’m so happy with how all of them turned out, and now that I finally have them all, whew! I also updated my storenvy with limited amounts of each too
Aa hello hello everyone! I finished organizing and drawing my Pikmin zine, "to my small friends", and it’s finally up for preorder!
The book is saddle stitched, 5.5” x 8.0”, with 20 pages full of my Pikmin art along with new illustrations and sketches, as a tiny bundle of love for this series.
Preorders will end on the 15th and the zine won’t come with the extra stuff after that! Thank you! ;v;
Another brief Animal Crackers update!
I slept way early last night (6PM) and woke up way early today (3AM) so I decided to work on the game some more. I added something I’ve been
incorrectlycalling flavor text. When you pass by an animal a very brief mini-profile including a name and description will appear in the bottom left corner. The other empty squares are for items you can pick up throughout this game.
Ideally this will be done by the end of the month. I think it’s possible since I don’t have too much left to do on my end in terms of hard coding. Somehow I managed to code this thing somewhat decently, so maintaining it has been fairly seamless. You don’t want to hear much about those type of details though, so I’ll stop. :P
I hope you enjoy this when it comes out!
