All right! deviantART journal… cause this is kinda important, I think. Well, some of it…? I’ll start with the important stuff and I’ll leave the personal/explanation stuff afterwards. Good? Let’s go!

So some of you may have heard that network I work with, Mochi Media is shutting down at the end of this month on March 31st, 2014. This means that the publishers I work with will no longer have the rights to post/distribute most of my games (so they won’t be available on other websites anymore) and I will no longer be receiving anymore earnings from them. So you’re probably wondering what’s going to happen, right? Here’s what I’m gonna do: I’ll post my games directly to deviantART, so you guys will be able to play them here on this site. (I’m just going to update the .swf file on every game listed in my gallery so the full game can be played there instead of them linking you to that funny full-screen play mode or another site) But I just want to say, don’t worry. Things won’t really change much for you guys? Unless if you really enjoyed playing some of my stuff on a certain site? But I will make them all available here, just for all y’all <3 Thank you for all the support. I really wanted to make sure my stuff would still be available for everyone to still play, whether I still made earnings from them or not. With all of the plays, support, and love they receive, I’m sure they mean something to many people out there. I again apologize for my lack of generating content for the past year and for my new dedication to my personal future and building of my career.

I did initially plan on seeking another partner and/or network to work with/move to right away, but due to finals and just general plans I have for spring break… I’m gonna put that on hold for now. What I was earning with Mochi Media mostly just covered a couple of my bills, but I was never fully reliant on them. And that’s why I at least work part time, ha ha ha. I have known about Mochi Media shutting down… for a while now actually. Sorry I didn’t really give any comment on this before? I wanted to prepare/get ahead for finals and I honestly needed some time to actually decide what I was going to do.

Also! I did say that I was going to stick with the April Fool’s thing (those awful dating sims) Let’s just say I might be late this year…? (Does that defeat the whole purpose of creating something for April Fool's? But almost all of you know it's a thing that I post weird games that day? Better late than never?) Hey, JonTron was late for Christmas with a video by like two months, not sayin’ that two wrongs make a right, just sayin’ that it’s a thing. And that I love him. And Game Grumps. And food. And makeup. And cute clothes. And Rilakkuma. Where was I at? Oh, yes. Youtube. Man, I’ve been feeling sick lately. When I feel under the weather, I’ll sit in front of my computer, wrapped in my fluffy blanket, and just watch Youtube videos all day. I’d like to believe that I haven’t been feeling well because I’m almost done with finals and my body is just saying, “done? yea? k ill turn everything off”, but to be honest with myself, I haven’t really been physically active in the past two years, haven’t been outside much at all ( so pale… ;-; ), and ever since I started going to college, my diet has been kinda awful? I have a bad habit of not eating and skipping meals, specifically when I’m in tune with my work and projects for school. Doesn't help that I tend to lose weight when under stress? Let’s just say that I weigh less than a hundred pounds now…? Is that bad? Really bad? I’m working on it! I love food! I’ll make time for the things I love, right? Also, I have this weird lump on my upper neck… my lymph node is just swollen, right? It’s just fighting off bacteria and viruses, yeah? Eh, I’ll just let it do its job. And I’ll just stick to my job of whatever. Yeah! Tag team! //high fives lymph node
Eh, though this is the time of year where my body usually gets sick because the weather can't make up its mind from being wintery cold to warm and sunny and my body doesn't deal well with the sudden, dramatic changes @__@

Thanks for all the birthday messages too (early, late, or whatnot) ;//o//; I feel a little old now... but I definitely still feel young as I'm the youngest person in my program at school. Makes me feel very, very small and little sometimes but new and fresh at the same time ha ha.

Sorry like half of my sentences end in question marks, like wow, when did that become a thing for me?

Never got around to commenting directly on your account before, odd...
I remember when I first played Festival Days, and all the others that they all interconnected, even if I didn't realize it at first. Feels like so loooong ago.

I'm only admin of an 8k-following tumblr page and a geeky gaia online user, and even then, I find myself screwing about due to life situations/other things and find myself going to it again (this one time it was over a span of 2 years) later with people asking me if I'm even alive...haha. 

This is only tumblr n' gaia I'm talking about, though - I certainly don't create my own sim dates/visual novel games for entertainment purposes. Whatever time you need, or perhaps never to make another game at all...that's alright. But like others have said, an update, even if to say, "yeah, I'm out" would be pretty relieving, (alright, maybe not so bluntly, lol) just so us silly worrisome fans know you're doin' okay (even though, like I said, I'm guilty of not doing it, too). You're a pretty rad person, even just from your games, strips and humor. 

*Cough* COMIC strips.

Agreeing with katniss527
I don't want you to feel pressured into making games, but we all love you and are concerned for you.
It would be awesome if you could make another update post similar to this
No pressure on making a game, although it would be nice.
katniss527 Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist

I love your games from the very beginning and I'm sad to hear that you won't have a partner to continue making them (for now). But, thank you for everything you've done with all the amazing games. I'll still keep playing them~! :)

How/What do you use to make these games? Do you work alone?

As far as I know, she uses a really old version of flash to make the games! And she does all the work herself, yes. ouo

malenmal232 Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2014
I just wanted to say that I think that it is AMAZING what you have accomplished at such a young age!! You are only two years older than me, and I remember first starting to play your games around when the Idol Days Sim Date jut came out. I was 14, and you were only 16!! The plots and stories of each character are amazing and well written and thought out, as well as your Xolga and Mr. Togo stories. If you ever wanted to write a book, you would be an AMAZING author with the skills you've already developed! Keep pursuing your dreams, and whatever your heart desires!

Out of curiosity pacthesis. Have you ever considered a collab for one of your games? Because I would love to see what you would be able to do with twice the people working on it!

Thank you so very much for keeping us updated! I replay all your games all the time so it's super nice to know where I can find them! <3 And by the way, having April Fools' Day on time is totally overrated.

Oh, and I live in Brazil (hot asf), and I'm very, very pale. Thats weird lol 
Lucrecia13 Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2014
Sorry to hear you'll no longer be getting your funds, I'm sure those were nice to have around as a just in case. But I suppose that's the way the cookie crumbles. I think it's really great that you're making a way for us to still play the games, it means a lot. Especially to this girl, since your games kind of paved the way into my dating sim/otome game craze which still hasn't ended mind you. Thanks for that. <3 I hope you feel better soon, you should probably start eating better but I know all too well the full extent of bad eating habits so I can't really say much. Anyway just giving a little love from a fan so like... love and stuff. Taaaaake iiiiiiit *Shoves box o' love forward* Hope to hear from you again sometime soon~
xEternal-Snowx Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
