Ernesto RPG - A Side Project

First of all, I'll be straightforward: Storyteller will be put on development hold for a couple months. But it's for a good reason!

I love Storyteller, I think it's an important game and I want it to be released soon, but I've been working on it for three years now and I am starting to feel creatively numb from always dealing with the same project. There are a few important things to work out before I am able to release it, so there's no way I can rush it to completion. Storyteller still needs time and more hard work to be a great game.

It happened that recently I decided to take a week to make a small game and thus "Ernesto RPG" was born. After releasing it into the wild, I realized that there might be upsides to turning it into a tiny commercial game:

  • It will take my designer mind off of Storyteller for a while, allowing me to go back to it from a different perspective.
  • Releasing commercially means Ernesto will have to go through the same releasing pipeline that Storyteller will have to go through; by then, I will be more experienced.
  • Ernesto reminded me how I felt when I started with Storyteller. I have been in a very good mood since I started it.

Does this mean Storyteller is cancelled?

Not at all! "My Game" is still Storyteller, it's the best game I've ever made and I could not abandon it even if I tried. But I'd like to take some time off and I believe it will benefit Storyteller in the long run.

When is Storyteller development going to resume?

As soon as the heavy-duty development of Ernesto is finished. I am aiming for less than 3 months. To know when this happens, follow this blog, follow my twitter, or better yet,

(It will be updated very frequently)


  1. I played to Storyteller at AIIDE 2013, and I know it will be awesome!
    Take your time, have a break and ship us a well-polished game when you're ready, man.

  2. Played it a lot a while ago. Great game I must say, has some really interesting parts.
    I don't play it a lot now due to it little saturated me, however maybe I play it again.

    Thanks for the share!


  3. Gotta say it's really disappointing you haven't continued focusing on storyteller yet...
    I feel like it could have been out by now.

  4. sprawdz czy byles juz tutaj! jezeli nie wszystko przez toba!

  5. Szukasz odpowiednich zabiegów dla siebie? Zależy tobie na dobrej depilacji za rozsądna cene? No to juz znalazłeś depilacja laserowa poznań kliknij a nie pozalujesz. Ja jestem bardzo zadowolona i to od dłuższego czasu. Brawo i jeszcze brawo. Nie urkywam ze długo szukałam odpowiedniego miejsca w którym mogę poddać się depilacji laserowej jednak w końcu mi się udało.

  6. Still being made?

  7. Shame, game had potential to be relevant with big news sites reporting on it a while back when it was being made, guessing it won't see the day of light, but even if it does will anybody still care?

  8. The game is ded... such a shame sigh....

    1. Ikr \: it was such an original cool idea at the time, it would have smashed, but rather than doing everything right and just finishing the game he gave up :( tragic.
