I'm having more fun responding to these reviews than I've had in a while :) Anyway, READ THE FOLLOWING BECAUSE IT'S IMPORTANT: Game instructions are linked in the preloader, and the "?" button in-game links you to the FAQ. The game defaults to "AUTO QUALITY." If it is running slow for you (ie. Slower than a NORMAL ROLE PLAYING GAME), which it will for slow computers, the quality can be toggled with the Q button, and the FAQ will provide alternate solutions including a version with adjustable size! If you still complain about speed or don't know what to do in the game after that, I feel sorry for you.

In a month or so, the Arrogancy RPG/Action/Dating Sim/Shooting/Strategy game will be released. We decided to cut out two blocks of the rather gigantic game as we were working on it to use as a demo of sorts. The full game is as plot heavy as most console RPGs and as diverse as possible. These blocks contain just a few things you can do, and not nearly all of the things you can do, even in that area.

Well, I see room for improvement..

Sorry, but I didn't like it. First of all, it looks really bad. The people stand too much out of the background, like stickers on a postcard or smth. The only thing well drawn were the babes (I only saw two anyway, before I had enough and closed the game). "Mr Arrogancy" runs so slow, my grandma could have beat him in a race. And what the fuck is wrong with the people standing around and doing NOTHING? They don't even give you any useful information, I think you should leave them out. The flirting with the babes looked OK, but I didn't get the point of it wot to do/say to make her want you.
All in all, it's obvious you've put a lot of work in it, but please - take a look at the dating sim "Frank's adventure" and learn smth from it. I wish you luck with your future works.


arrogancy responds:

1) I disagree. I have a rather unbiased eye, even though I created it, given my fine art training, and not much in Flash looks better.

2) The people standing out were and aesthetic choice given the variety of backgrounds and such in the full game. I decided to stick with a certain line width to fit in with the majority of the town while still standing out enough so that the average player would know to talk to them. You've only seen two backgrounds out of the entire game.

3) Arrogancy runs slow because your computer is crap. Sorry, but you need to upgrade.

4) If i were to animate every townsperson, the game would jump up one or two megs, and your crap computer would run the game even SLOWER. It's a Flash limitation. It's just a demo, so the relevance of the townspeople's information isn't even applicable yet. Duh.

5) Frank's Adventure is an extremely dumbed down version of the full game, really. There isn't anything I can learn from it because you can ALREADY do everything in that game and 5 times as much more in mine thusfar.

pretty but dull

it's a neat engine, i guess. i don't know, i've had a lot more enjoyment from shitty but clever stick games. i blammed it because a boring tech demo, no matter how pretty, is still a boring tech demo.

...

It got really boring, really quick. Just like any other dating sim...I mean its different but pretty much its the same thing in a way. Like I said...I just got bored really fast.

nice concept

The concept is there... but it disadvantages people who have slow computers :-( lol... but the graphics were smooth, and the drawings were exceptionally drawn! you're a great drawer... the controls were good, although my computer was lagging. Make it efficient for slower computers! The sound was nice... the gameplay is unique and looks very appealing to play.. might want to add/adjust the running feature to speed it up a knotch - can't wait until the proper full version installment :-)
