Working on EBF5 v2

Hey guys. I'm working on new dungeons and content for Epic Battle Fantasy 5, which is what I promised to do if the game's launch was successful. It's a big update, so it's not going to be finished any time soon. Until then, you can follow updates on my website. There's already a few new enemies shown there. I haven't planned everything out yet, but it's likely the update will include 3 new dungeons, lots of bosses/minibosses, new flairs, and challenge modes.

In related news, I'm doing a foe design competition for EBF5! I'm looking for pixel art monster designs which I may use in the game, so you should check it out if that sounds interesting. Here are the details.

EBF5 version 1.5!

Hey guys, version 1.5 is available now.
To opt-in, go to Steam Client > EBF5 > right-click > Properties > Betas > Select the other version.
I’ll set this live for everyone in a few days if no problems are found.

Here’s a list of changes:
• Added the Chinese New Year holiday quest, which includes 2 new equips and a new skill. (available 18th of Jan)
• Nerfed the Cosmic Gigalith. It no longer does damage when killed, and it has less HP if you save after beating it.
• Buffed the Evil Players, by making cheap tactics less effective against them.
• Added a new music track, used in the 1st and 4th dungeons.
• Reduced foe stat growth after level 36, so players are not punished for grinding at the end of the game.
• Fixed a bunch of minor bugs, translation errors, and made some minor balancing changes, like buffing Snow Cats.
• Someone pointed out that the audio was set to mono rather than stereo, so let me know if it sounds any better now.

This might be the last update for a few months. But I’ve got a lot of new content planned for later!

About This Game

Epic Battle Fantasy 5 is an over-the-top turn-based RPG adventure, full of video game references, juvenile dialogue, and anime fanservice (...and also strategic combat, monster catching, and tons of treasure hunting - if you're into any of those.)

If you're new to the series, this is a good place to start, and if you've played the other games, there's plenty of new features for you to explore.

Epic Battle Fantasy 5 features...

  • Over 170 different enemies to fight, all with unique abilities and attack patterns.
  • Over 120 usable skills, and more equips than you can try out in a single playthrough.
  • Almost any enemy can be captured like a Pok*mon, and later summoned in battle. (including bosses!)
  • New mechanics also include weather conditions and a cooldown system. (MP is gone!)
  • Set up devastating combos with damage-amplifying status effects. (wet + thunder = massive damage!)
  • 30 hours of gameplay, plus lots of optional dungeons and challenges.
  • Suitable for both casual and hardcore RPG players, and is safe for all ages, if offensive content is disabled.

Epic Battle Fantasy 5 does NOT feature...

  • Annoying random battles.
  • Limited save points.
  • Depressed protagonists.
  • Points of no return.
