We're doing a quick update called "Mars Update".

- The main goal is to add a few perks gameplay wise; every 20 Stylish
Finishes will add 25% health regained while adding 25% of your Banzai
Heat back.

- Dodging attacks at the right moment will add bonus Heat. Some new object placement and enemy placement in some stages.

- Flan Nougatt's voice clips are being updated to match the changes as well as add lost clips.

- Tossing in some more Cosplay Colors as well. It's been awhile.

- Also, the usual performance tweaking.

Also, the game is still 99 cents! The new update should be ready by January!

Any reason why this game isn't on greenlight?

More or less, I won't try to get it back on Greenlight. If you people want to see it on there, at this point, it's a matter of people asking for it.

Mostly because of either "Looks lame, didn't even try it" or "OMG IT"S A HENTAI HERP."

It's a cut and paste, since this isn't the first time someone has asked for it to be on Steam, but...

I've seen some gorgeous one-man or two-man team games that were amazing on Greenlight and felt they deserved a shot on there. But of course, people were dismissing it as "not trendy enough" or mistake it as a big company making a small game. Which is ignorant on both parts: if it's fun, it deserves a chance, damn the content.

Most people mistook Pecan as some "Hentai" game. Okay, granted, its risqué humor and "over-the-top" suggestive themes may lead one to believe that, but honestly? It's a harmless poke from the 80s and 90s on how anime and video games portrayed their brave heroines. Valis, Project A-KO, hell, Slayers serve as prime examples of what silly fun the game has in store.

The worse that happens is Episode 4, against Mistress Mocha. Otherwise, it's no worse in content than Outlaw Star.

As for "quality" of the game, for a VERY small team on graphics, (me jumping between music, graphics and programming), the idea was making a modern Sega Saturn game. Personally, even though there's room for improvement, I'd say we did a damn good job trying to get it out by a certain time! And I'm actually still trying to update it, adding new enemy types, moves and tweaks. But I digress, I'm rambling.

Point is, I'm thankful for everyone supporting as well as giving criticism in a mature open manner towards improving the game before jumping onto our next project. Considering te origins of this project, I'm actually very proud and happy where it's gotten.

But yes. Point is? Give new, smaller, projects a chance. Within time, they'll definitely grow.

I really loved this game. And is really nice to see a fine game using the multimedia fusion plataform.

In the next time, I sugest make a sequel using a multi-plataform tool, like Unity or Game Maker to "hit" more people to make a good playerbase. Having a chance to play this or a new game in the linux, mac or android can be nice in the future. :)

This is kind of a dumb thing to ask, but do you a resolution and fullscreen option could be added in a future update? I don't know why the current version of the demo (the one I'm getting off Desura anyways) still have lagging issues that hinders the controls; it makes playing the demo harder than it should be.

See what I did there? I'm giving constructive feedback on the demo. Now if only the idiots that trolled you on Steam Greenlight could learn to do that...

Before I forget, here's my system specs. Not sure if it will answer the lagging issues.

OS: WIndows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
Video Card; NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460
CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad 2.50GHz

PS - just wanted to add that the full version on Desura and Indievania get constantly updated. The only "major slowdown" would be from the "free" version that's been floating around, so.... :/

What sort of slowdown are you getting, if I may ask? The game ran in slow motion for me until I got it on another machine. Literally a solid third of the speed of what the game should have run at.

Hotline Miami gave me the same problem, but only the Steam version did. The same version of the game without Steam had no trouble. I don't get it.

I've tried to mess around with a "Video" option in the original build, which somehow gave me problems when I updated the actual engine. It's one of the few things I'm looking into for this new update, which not only will I update the full game, but will also update the demo with the new fixes, giving the ultimate taste for this game. It still baffles me why it's giving you problems, though perhaps it IS the demo itself since the actual full game has been updated a few times. Hopefully with the demo fix coming up as well, it may fix this! With your specs, it should be MORE than enough to run the game, though if worse comes to worst, setting the game in "XP Mode" may make or break it.

Appreciate the feedback, hopefully, we can nail this in the bud.

I wanted to mention this earlier but the time limit to edit comments was up and this happened afterwards; I found a game-breaking bug in the demo where French Vanilla's boob counter sends you flying... and never coming back. The game just hangs where Pecan should respawn. But again, this was from the (current) demo.

The demo hasn't updated yet, but yeah. Found that in the full version and actually found why too. Talk about a simple reason. Hopefully that works and after that led to changing the "graphic" side of the engine for the sake of having run without a hitch! Good eye, though!

One of the best Beat'em ups I've played in a long time. It's hard, got that classic 2D arcade feel! Wonderful soundtrack to boot! Thank you for giving me a blast from the past! Oh, can't forget the wonderful character designs! Keep up the amazing work bro!!
