     A key problem with Battle Gem Ponies right now is that nobody knows it exists. How do I let people who'd probably like it know it exists? Well, sitting here and talking about it on my website nobody's heard of isn't getting the job done. And an occasional mention here and there on high traffic blogs isn't working either. 

     How about I take it to the hypest place on the information highway? The place people specifically go to look to see interesting things they'll probably like...

     YouTube. I'm talking about YouTube. I need to take my channel seriously and start pumping out videos that show what the game is all about, what I'm all about as a dev, and for the love of all things holy get my Patreon numbers up before my debts swallow me whole (this game is officially years too late and things I've been putting off won't stay at bay forever). 

     See all the different ways I plan to save my butt financially by pushing Battle Gem Ponies under a much bigger spotlight in this week's development log!

      We glad to introduce the very first concept of the game for you! 🙂 Don’t blame us for poor graphics and outdated technologies (the prototype is written in Flash to speed up development).
      perimetria.griffgriffgames.com
      Originally, the concept was borrowed from an educational game for children where every child has to position a rectangle on paper to avoid overlapping with already positioned figures. We thought that it would become really fun if we add some extra features to make the process more challenging.
      We're waiting for your feedback!

      Okay, this would be for a PC game. It would be a pixel 2D fighting game with heavy story elements.
       
      General Story:
      A girl is sent to a mysterious medical facility that houses different kinds of "summoners", or people who accidentally end up summoning manifestations of their emotions. It is more of an experimental kind of set up rather than the helpful facade that the caretakers like to put up, and there are a lot of odd rules in place that keep the residents from wandering the hallways or contacting anyone outside of the walls.
      The girl suffers from OCD, and it gives her a lot of anxiety that ends up turning into small, dark creatures that she has to fight off on occasion. Throughout her stay at the facility, she meets and becomes friends with various caretakers, such as the doctors and nurses, and other patients who have their own monsters to deal with.
      Everything is calm, and peaceful. That is, until people at the facility start disappearing. It started with one staff member. Then another. Now even the patients are starting to go missing. The facility tries to play it off as if everything is normal, but even they can't cover up the strange noises at night, and the rumors of something terrible going on within the walls of what was thought to be a safe place.\As tension and anxiety rises, all of the monsters become stronger and more aggressive.
      And so the girl, along with her new friends, decide to investigate what exactly is going on by sneaking around the facility and collecting clues, all the while fighting against their inner demons.
       
      I am not experienced with making stories, so please judge the crap out of this so I know what to improve on. If I made something too ambiguous, I'd be happy to clarify what I mean, or give a more detailed description.

      Hello, anyone who wishes to help would be greatly appreciated.
      https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/LPRMT55
      I am doing research on the effect that music and sound effects have on the consumers of video games, this includes immersion, mood manipulation and time distortion.
      This survey is around 1-2 minutes and asks you questions on this topic, with the aim of the results showing a developed pattern between variables.
      The data provided in this survey will only be used for an essay comparing the pattern of these results with other academic sources, and discussing how the video game industry uses this to their advantage. The survey doesn't ask for personal information except for age and gender. 
      Thank you.
