The Pyraplex: Gold Medal Pyramid

Not an optimal triangle but it did the job. Got 88 points total for this hideous thing.

There’s 5 Capstones on it because one of the requests was to stick that specific amount onto the pyramid. BTW, Capstones aren’t necessary for the annual review.

This just goes to show that you don’t need a perfect triangle to get the 80 points required. What you’re striving for is lots of amenities and decent symmetry. For the latter, as long as the left and right sides of the Center are fairly even, the reviewer will throw lots of points at you.

My results were as follows:

Shape: 10

Amenities: 38

Aesthetics: 40

Obviously, if I didn’t have that vertical part jutting out near the top, I would have scored better on the shape. 😛

Will Kairosoft bring Game Dev Story 2 PC to mobile devices?

Probably not because they already did.

The text next to the screenshot reads that "this latest work has been released as an app for DoCoMo"

It then goes on to give a super brief description of the game, and underneath it, there’s mention that it’s also on Android and iOS.

This isn’t to say that they won’t do a new version of GDS exclusively for mobile but since they already made a simplified version of GDS2 PC, I kind of doubt they’ll release it again with all the original content.

Updated on December 13th:

There IS, however, a fan-translation in the works which you can find here: http://adeptgamer.com/forum/threads/game-dev-story-2-translation.301/ In fact, it’s the same one that was at Kairospot. Why the move? Well, hang onto your seat because here’s the mindblowing story: http://adeptgamer.com/forum/threads/kairospot-gamerspot.78 To be precise, the fan translator ended up bringing his work over to AdeptGamer.

Pyramid Kingdom Excavation (発掘ピラミッド王国)/The Pyraplex Guide

Edit on Dec 15th: This post originally had a link to the Google Docs spreadsheet. It has since been removed in favour of the guide. Please check http://adeptgamer.com/forum/pages/the-pyraplex-guide/ instead. :3

Mini walkthrough can be found at http://adeptgamer.com/forum/threads/the-pyraplex-info-guide-walkthough.231/ I’ll slowly get around to adding more info into the walkthrough part although it will pretty much end up being a “personal preference in how you want to play the game” deal. 😛

Anyway, come chat about the game with us! 😀

[Kairosoft Android] 発掘ピラミッド王国 (Pyramid Kingdom Excavation)~! The Pyraplex~!

発掘ピラミッド王国 Title Screen
It’s not like Mega Mall Story!

Probably touting this a little too early but I do plan on playing the game more, or at least reading up on the How to Play section. 😛 As noted in the caption, despite the impressions you may get from screenshots, the game really isn’t like MMS at all! There’s more to do and manage like assigning tasks to residents of your pyramid and upping your Pyramid Power to attract tourists and more residents~! (At least, I think that’s part of what PP does. ^^;)  There’s still floor compatibility and comboing though.

Anyway, I started up a thread over at AdeptGamer~! http://adeptgamer.com/forum/threads/the-pyraplex-info-guide-walkthough.231/ Join us!

Edit on November 16th: I locked that thread since I wanted to keep it to the guide and walkthrough info only. You can chat about the game at http://adeptgamer.com/forum/threads/the-pyraplex-discussion.264/ though~! ^-^

Yes, the game is only in Japanese at the moment but at least it’s not region locked! Check it out at https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.kairosoft.android.pyramid_ja. And no, I don’t have a cracked APK nor does AdeptGamer! Be nice and support Kairosoft!

Edit on Nov 12th: Woo! The How to Play/Manual section has been translated! Now I more or less know what stats do and some other stuff. Anyway, I updated my first post in the forum thread linked above~ I’ll probably work on screen translations and maybe whip up a small tutorial too~

Edit on Nov 23rd: Check this too~ https://koukoupuffs.net/2012/11/22/kairosoft-android-behold-pyramid-kingdom-gameplay/

Epic Pirates Story Alpha Demo Notice

Edit on November 10th, 2012: Uh, yeah. The deal with Epic Devs fell through a few weeks ago. Want to know the reason? Check here: https://koukoupuffs.net/2012/10/26/the-exodus-at-kairospot/

————————————

Did you know that the premiere Kairosoft fan site, Kairospot, has expanded to include up-and-coming developer, Epic Devs LLC? They have a little home on the forum since they’ll be putting out some Kairosoft-esque games in the near future! The first one on the list will be Epic Pirates Story.

In fact, just today, Epic Devs gave Kairospot a treat: all members have access to an alpha build of their game to check out the look and feel of what’s to come! It’s available for download for Android users to test out. However, do expect lots of bugs and the possibility that it may not even load up on your device. We invite everyone experiencing issues to report about them in the same thread.

My name is Guybrush, er, Treep G. Woodbrush and I wanna be a pirate!

For those interested, you can nab the demo here: [Link has been removed since the forum and thread no longer exists. Again, check here for the reason.] You will most likely need to register/log in to see the thread though. The process should be painless. 😛

Even with the limited gameplay available, Epic Devs is getting some high praise from their toughest critics (since we’re all Kairosoft fans XD). I’m among those that are liking what they see. (AND hear cuz the background music’s pretty damn good.) Hopefully, the full game won’t disappoint.

As they’re focusing on Google’s platform first, iOS fans will have to wait as there’s no concrete date as to when they’ll get the port. :/

Hoshi ni natta Kairo-kun (星になったカイロくん)

a.k.a Kairobot Becomes a Star

Or my translation: Shining Kairobot! (You see, the title is a parody of Hoshi ni natta Shounen (星になった少年) or Shining Boy & Little Randy (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0465499/)).

The game is really fun. It’s what Dungeon Village SHOULD have been. I mean, this Kairobot game is more RPG-esque than Dungeon Village! I hope the localization will be out before the end of May. Everyone needs to play it. *___*

And no, I do not have the APK for download.
