I've been waiting for this game for sooo long!! From the few sprites he showcased I can see the animation quality has increased yet again. This will be an instant buy on my end. Thanks for sharing this, OP!

Barrage was great and yeah, those animations and art look a lot better than I remember in Barrage. This dev seems really consistent, I wonder why I haven't played their other games yet, they all look pretty good. Maybe I'll look em up before this is released. I probably had them saved in tabs and lost the window at some point, pretty sure I was planning on playing them eventually.

Dang it's nice to have devs you can rely on, I usually don't get excited before a game is complete/reviews are in, but this seems promising. Seems to have great kinks in it too. Dat facehugger animation though~ Simple but effective.

if i understand the blogpost, theres gonna be a female and futanari version/transformation in the game? as result the scenes will change a bit, well thats sure another + on the list for this game, next to lab 2(do they have a release this year too? maybe) this will be probably one of the better pixel-games this year.

Japanese speaker to the rescue!

- The title may be changed since he is still in the middle of setting up the plot.
- aroused / futa status available, and applies to all h-scenes with enemies you encounter. the number of frames will not be much different from BARRAGE!
- about 50 variations of weapons. some will be just different in stats.
- numbers of the map are currently about 160, but he wants to increase to 180-ish.
- will be able to hire NPC mercs. currently made 8 of them.
- he didn't feel like making h-scenes, so he just did a heck of glitch-exterminating and map building. in result he finished about 80% of the maps, but 20% of lewd stuff completed.
- he's gonna get busy again after July, so currently attempting to release demo and show another progress report before that.

seems like the player character is android or cyborg or something.

Is the title "translation" accurate? I assumed it was one of those things where output is completely different

I belive so. 銑鉄 can be translated as "cast iron" or "pig iron", and pig iron seems more appropriate here.

Re: 銑鉄の探索者/"Pig Iron Explorer" - creator of BARRAGE!

Gonna keep an eye on this. Hopefully it's better than Wandering City.

Gotta admit, I haven't really played Ethereal Legion. I didn't give it a much of a chance because I didn't really understand it and then forgot about it. Then came Wandering City. Decent, although it's kinda grind-heavy and better played with the music turned off.

Still, Barrage was great, so let's hope this one does well.

You could turn off the music in Wandering City? Fuck, I could've spared myself some insanity.
Ethereal Legion's good for the H-anims alone - I didn't understand the gameplay at all, much less how to beat it

Very much do want.

Maybe this will topple BARRAGE! as my favorite game from this circle (and one of my favorite H games period.)

BARRAGE was a good game with many flaws. Unfortunately, the follow ups exhausted my belief in the circle. Maybe this will revive it.

Pointed legs ARE MY JAM (Scizor, Marina Liteyears, Aigis, and Fireball Charming are other examples that come to mind) and I very much enjoyed the last game. So I'm very much looking forward to this one!

Re: 銑鉄の探索者/"Pig Iron Explorer" - creator of BARRAGE!

I just played Ethereal Legion, while it is strange and the H being completely censored to oblivion before you clear the game hurt it (Just beat everything on easy to unlock human sprites), it wasn't terrible. Game gets better on harder difficulties and the secret level is pretty awesome. Some people might be turned off by it because it's like a summoner simulator, you mostly just attack to regen mana for more summons. You also might not notice soon enough that you can upgrade your attacks to be able to use them when you jump, that helps tremendously.

It did have balance issues though, if you can avoid being grabbed, you really can't lose. Some of the bosses become too easy because their H grabs are pretty easy to avoid (Final boss has this issue the worst, she should have had H attacks that were much harder to avoid), so you can slowly chip them down without much skill. For those that didn't enjoy it, I'd say try to realize the gameplay is mostly trying to summon the right type of summons to deal with situations. The summons all have pretty clear strengths and weaknesses and are actually fairly well balanced. There isn't really a clear "spam summon this all game to win" summon, like similar games usually have, you have to switch things up for certain levels/enemies. You might think the ice golems with aoe damage are OP at first, but then you come to tank enemies that blow them away in one shot. Similarly the flying summons with homing attacks sometimes seem really powerful, until they get pelted down out of the sky by anti air monsters.

Best level was the secret necromancer level by far. It unlocks after you full clear the main game on the 2nd or 3rd difficulty I think? Maybe it unlocked after I cleared everything on easy and I didn't notice it immediately. I think he should have set up the main game to be more like that, having more than 2 magic slots for starters. Play that on the hardest difficulty and you'll really feel what the game is about. It's better because you already have everything you need to win, sometimes you can dig yourself into a hole with only 2 slots if you bring along the wrong type of summons for a level in the main game. So all you have to worry about in that level is summoning the right types of monsters at the right times and avoiding enemies.

TLDR: Although it did have some balance issues, he actually did a decent job of recreating the "summoner" playstyle of oblivion games. You can't do much on your own and just need to use your mana appropriately and avoid damage to win (Being stripped naked means you can't generate mana with your attacks anymore and it's more difficult to win). If you've never played a game/gamestyle like that before, you might be confused or might not enjoy it though. Don't judge the game too harshly on the easy difficulty setting, think of that as just the way to unlock the proper H animations : p The game is meant to be replayed on all difficulty settings.


I'ma probably try out that "wandering city" game soon.

I've loved all the games by this Circle, although Wandering City was my least favorite, the animations were good and kept me happy.

Ethereal Legion was great in my opinion, especially after I played the translated version. I was also very much into the shadow style of the characters, made better when you can change them back to humans. Wish the game overs were a little better, but I can't complain. I currently have full trust in Acid Style.

had fun with BARRAGE too back then, can't wait to test this game out.
it'll be very hot if you can somehow have a relationship with your merc and have a good time together every now and then, being a futa mc in an r18 game, the possibility of her screwing another female is quite high.

Re: 銑鉄の探索者/"Pig Iron Explorer" - creator of BARRAGE!

uuuuuupdate from developer's blog.
according to him, he felt confident about the trial so he ran the final debug,
and found "critical calculation miss" from the store in the game.
so, he's currently fixing it, and will try to release the trial by next week.

cant, wait.

oh btw, if the developer doesn't change the title, I think it should be translated to
"Iron-made" or something rather than "Pig Iron", since the PC seems to be an android.
