Sorry for the lack of updates.

Currently I have a mixed feeling toward Sai Amp Mitch, although it's just a hobby. I have a feeling that the game needs something more in order for it to succeed. I could keep on creating more things and stuff for the game, but if I do that, would I not end up having another Dimentia simply reskinned?

Creating the game (a.k.a. product) is only half the battle. If I end up creating a product that nobody cares, then all those sweats in each night will be for nothing. The other half battle lies within marketing side.

So I have been talking with a few people. I could see that in Dimentia, there are 2 types of players:

1. People who play the game because of the "clone". Let's call this group "clone lover".

2. People who play the game because of the game mechanic. Let's call this group "gamer".

Sometimes a player could fall into 2 categories at the same time.

"Clone lover" likes Cleo Patra and Sky Chasm the most for obvious reason... the stage is filled with multiplying bee girls. However, the Rotten Pinnacle stage and Hell Summit stage have negative impact on them, because things are quite dark. "Clone lover" also sometimes couldn't execute certain action moves validly but fortunately, the game allows other ways to eliminate the obstacle without mastering everything.

"Gamer", on the other note, is ok with any stages, and a few did clear the game at 100% rate. "Gamers" can and know how to execute action moves without much issues and some see through certain element that allows them to exploit and run rampage through the whole game.

Dimentia is pretty much a quirky game that doesn't make much sense and doesn't have that much plot. At that time, I made the game out of pure feeling alone and not much of any reasoning. It is a hobby after all.

But from the players, I can see that at this day of age, it is not really much about the game, is it? I feel it's more about the community. Video games used to be about a local activity, given the retro technology. But today, things change. So too, must games be changed. Why do we have tons of hats in Team Fortress 2, millions of variety of user generated contents for Minecraft and ocean of Touhou fanmade contents?

What would happen to Sai Amp Mitch? I would say something is needed to be changed once again. This is ok though. I believe I am still missing many elements that make the game work. Obviously, I am not talking about art, programming, music or game design. I am talking about other factors that have an impact and flow around the community.

Let me go see some more things first and see how will I go from here.

Regards,
TwinBlazar

Hi! TwinBlazar here. I am a hobbyist game designer. Video games have been my passion since I was a kid. I used to create games with pens and papers to play with pals, but today, things get a little different... ;)

Hi, sorry that I didn't reply before. Currently, the playtest version of the game is up on Newgrounds. If you are interested, I can invite you into the project to testplay.

it is an mmo game. I have an account there too. You could do more fights to level up your monster and you could get to a higher rank and could be a awesome player.
