    v0.45

    CAUTION:
    IT IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED THAT YOU SAVE AT THE CHURCH BEFORE MOVING THE SAVE FILE TO THIS VERSION TO PREVENT UNEXPECTED ERRORS.

    Producer Corner:

    Hello everyone. This month we have the just-announced Alraune come out and play. She’ll currently be exclusively in Endless Mode.
    The whole saving feature has been fully revamped, including a normal saving screen, removing auto-saving in the dungeon, the Emergency Save and so on.
    All these changes had a considerable impact on the game’s database, which will also affect your old save files. If anything goes wrong, please give us a heads-up.
    More features will be added during the prepartion period for the next major update.

    Now for something kind of irrelevant. Recently we bumped into some comments suggesting that what we’re working right now isn’t good enough both lewd-wise and gameplay-wise, and there are better games on either spectrum.
    I’m sure this wasn’t the first time I heard this kind of comment, and this might not be the first time I explain it, but here it is:

    Originally the plan was to release the game on Steam, so we wish to up the game on gameplay to make it on par with the majority of indie games.
    However, after our project underway for quite some time, Steam announced that creators can release adult games directly. At that point, if we want to change our direction to cling to Steam’s new policy, the whole project might have to start all over again, and we won’t have what we have accumulated so far.
    Even with the new policy, we’re confident that with the underlined restrictions it’s not that easy to just release the full adult content on Steam. Some sort of patch is definitely needed.
    The Live2D animations and the voice acting are both a constant challenge to both me and my fellow members while trying to make Cursed Blacksmith a better experience.

    I feel like I need to point out that this title has already been a great leap since my last game, The Succubus’ Cage, whether it’s on gameplay or art/animations.
    Sure, if I want to make this game more lewd, all I need to do is make the enemies have some kind of sexual attacks during the battle, not just when you’re defeated, right? But we simply just don’t have that much resources to make this reality.
    Sprites for 20+ enemies’ H-attacks aren’t easy.

    Some might say that we made the game not arousing enough because we want to have it on Steam, but the truth is more like the opposite. It’s because we don’t have much manpower to do what we want to do for now.
    I hope this explanation could answer some of the doubts towards us. And if someday we have enough… anything we need, and fans still like us, I believe we can do something even greater, more fun, and maybe hornier.
    As long as this work supports our living, we will keep on bettering ourselves “Ason style.”

    Now that’s out of the way, I shall announce that I am officially vaccinated. The fever was devestating. Not to mention my lingering back pain.
    I need to exercise a bit more if I want to make it go away. Let’s just hope I’ll have enough time even to get up.

    v0.42

    It’s been 84 years… But we’re finally releasing the new major update of the game!

    Featuring Chapter 3! Tons of new things!
    YOU CAN NOW PLAY SOME NEXT-GEN GACHA LET’S GOOOO!!!
    Scroll down to see detailed update log!

     

    真的讓大家久等了……我們終於能釋出新的DEMO了!
    第三階段正式解放!各種新遊戲要素!轉蛋轉到飽!!!
    詳細的更新內容請往下看!

    ——————————-

    First, a quick note.
    When we develop this battle system, our intent has been (and probably will always be) to encourage players to try different weapons, combination etc., and learn from every failure.
    For the uninitiated or the ones still struggling to storm through the stages, we will gradually provide methods and/or systems, such as the tutorial section in the last update.
    Please look forward to these changes, and always feel free to ask for advices with each other!

    On the other hand, we have received several words from players saying that the whole game can be beaten with a big weapon with big numbers on it, and just hitting with normal attacks.
    Well I’ll just say this… Be adaptable to new tactics, or you might suffer more than the others…

    With that out of the way, I’ll introduce to the new map objects just a little bit, and leave the exploring to you!

     

     

     

    So we heard you like gachas.
    Need some new accessories? Find this mysterious statue and give in your soul (Literally) to find some useful items!
    Legend says that with great luck you might even receive something you couldn’t even get yet…!
    Come on! Spin that wheel and… wait, you’re broke already?

     

     

    Well don’t you worry! The melting station can turn your items back into souls for you!
    Please make sure to spend your souls responsibly, okay?

     

     

     

     

    Think, player, think! You’re a blacksmith, remember?
    By throwing your current weapon and some souls into the scrapper, you might be able to get a better scrap than usual depending on the weapon’s elements and durability.
    Having a claymore on the brink of breaking? Why not “lose some weight” and carry the better side of it to your next creation?

    Of course, there is a ton more of new contents in your adventure. We hope you enjoy in whatever way you can, if you know what I mean…
    Finally, here’s our usual program of Leader Speaking!

    ——————————-

    Sorry for the wait, but we have finally readied all we need for this major update.
    There is too much coding to do this time, including the addition of the event maps, both visually and gameplay-wise.
    We spent the last few days on testing and pinched out as many bugs as we can, so hopefully there isn’t some game-breaking stuffs now.

    That being said, there are still some things we left out in this update, and will come out in subsequent small updates:

    1. Succubus’ memory
    2. New abilities from Doroelle’s Soul Imprint
    3. Changes on status ailments
    4. Improving battle messages
    5. Improving saving feature
    6. New forging manual
    7. Unique interactions in event maps

    As always, thank you all so much for your patience.
    For now, I need one or two days to fix my broken back while writing another dev diary regarding this update, which should be out in a few days.
    Feel free to discuss with us any detail with the title! We hope you enjoy!

    v0.16

    New Content:
    New monster girls exclusive to endless mode (with no memories and special drop available yet):
    Lady Fencer (VA: Rikka Mizutani)

     

    New feature: Skill Level system
    Every skill will have a maximum level of 10, with each level increases its damage, SP cost and more.
    Enhance/enchant weapon scraps with the same skills to weapons/accessories to level up the skill.
    eg. Jump Strike + Dagger’s Scrap = Jump Strike Lv.2
    Spin Strike Lv.3 + Bastard Sword’s Scrap *2 = Spin Strike Lv.5

    If a weapon and an accessory both contain the same skill, the level for that skill will add up.
    eg. Double Strike Lv.2 on weapon + Double Strike Lv.3 on acc. = Double Strike Lv.5

    System Adjustment:
    Endless Mode will now have a floor indication, showing players how many floors they have explored currently.
    (Temporary UI due to players’ request. Will improve UI in future builds)
    Every skill gets balance overhaul with the Skill Level system.
    Leap Slash area adjusted to improve usability.
    When using/changing skills, skill info will show up on screen.
    When changing weapons by holding Z key, weapon info will show up on screen.

    Other Changes:
    You can now diagonally move your cursor when deciding the area for skills such as Thunderbolt, Black Veil etc.
    Adjust the effect for Water Blade to make it more believable.
    Minor adjustments to visual effects.
    English translation overhaul for items. (Yes this is still going)

    Bug Fix:
    Fixed the bug that Flame Arrow can target fire on the field, causing the game to crash.
    Other miscellaneous fixes.

    v0.15
    N/A

    v0.14

    Addition:

     

    • New voice and h-scene dubs for Amazon, Demoness, and Oni
    • Gallery Mode revamped.

    You can now enter Gallery Mode through the blue portal in the church.
    Talk to the characters in this mode to revisit their respective H-scenes.
    For main characters, see the H-scene once to have them unlocked here.
    For monster girls, defeat them once to have their H-scenes unlocked here.
    (We spent a huge amount of effort for this, hope you like it!)

    Adjustments:

    • Bump the resolution to 1280×720 (16:9), Screen space and UI layout is changed.
    • Due to resolution change, the H-scenes screen has some adjustment as well.
    • Adjustments to the Live2D of Elven Fighter’s main h-scene
    • From now on, when HP gets to 0 and in the “struggling state,” your SP will decrease gradually as you are being attacked. And regain a small amount of SP when you get out of struggle state.
    • Temporarily disable the red haze effect when Erosion got to 60%. (We will make better ones in future)
    • Change the text in Stats screen. BlackRate > Base Block Rate and Block Efficiency > Block Rate Boost
    • Voice actress changes:
    Amazon (VA: Ao Kuranami)
    Demoness (VA: Ao Kuranami)
    Oni (VA: Rio Fujimura)

    Bug Fix:

    • Attempted to fix the error “knockback random jump of null”, “setBlendColor of undefined”
    (We hope we truly fixed it this time, and if it still happens, please report to us with details and specifics)
    • Fix the bug where skill is missing / unusable when equipping accessories and weapons with same skill
    • Fix Priest summoning spree. If Priest had summoned an Angel before she is being stunned or put to sleep, she could summon another Angel as she got out of the debuff state. Now she won’t be able to summon another Angel
    • Fix the bug: When hit by “send you flying into the air” type of skill and your HP got to 0, you would trigger traps if you land on one. No trap should be triggered if HP is at 0, but you will still get the “horizon light ball” on the ground. (The ones that have items or materials inside)
    • Fix the bug where pressing Esc would exit fullscreen. You would be able to switch in and out of fullscreen by pressing F4

    Words from the dev team:

    We’ve spent quite a bit of time to create the Gallery Mode and change the resolution to 16:9.
    There would be more interface changes and system changes in the future.

    By the way, and many of you might know this already, The Shimmering Horizon and Cursed Blacksmith now has a Steam Store Page!
    Please help us by adding it to your wishlist and spread the words! Here is a link:

    https://store.steampowered.com/app/1414910/

    We are quite busy this month, and still going to be a lot of stuff to work on next week.
    We are also working on stories. Due to funding issue, our productivity has been quite limited all along.
    Anyways, We hope we could live till the game is officially released.

    v0.13

    New Content:

     

    • New weapon: Water Greatsword
    • New Monster Memory: Vampiress’s memory, Lamia’s memory
    • New item: Blinding Potion
    • New Mode: Endless Mode
    • New monster girls exclusive to endless mode:
    Succubus ( CV: Rikka Mizutani)
    Priestess, Angel (CV: Akisora)

    About Endless Mode:

    1. Find Mr. Cock after Rezia has cleaned the church, and ask for permission to enter the endless mode in Arena. (Chicken is temporary he might change into something else in future.)
    2. System will safe keep all your items till you die in the endless mode, and they will be returned to you after. (But you can’t keep anything you got from this mode)
    3. Monster girls will gradually get stronger, but we haven’t find a suitable way to indicate that just yet. So be careful when you are in this mode.
    4. We will be putting monster girls here earlier than their supposed implementation schedule, as we release monster girls that’s best fitting for the story. They will not drop special materials, and you won’t be able to obtain their memories.
    5. As the development goes on, we will make this mode more complete.

    System Balance:

    • Accessories durability:
    Randomly reduce 1 durability to one of the equipped accessories when attacked
    Change to ↓
    All the equipped accessories has 25% chance to reduce 1 durability when attacked

    • Danger Sense’s sensing changes, and add 1 sensing distance
    • From now on, unintentional move, such as being hit back, knock into air, or being teleported, and landed on a trap, horizon light, or portal. They will still come into effect.
    • When using Unknown Castle Ruin teleportation portal, the map will no longer have the bell for returning to Safe House.
    • When players are in Confused state and trying to perform normal attack, there is 25% chance to move as commanded (Friendly reminder, confused state does not affect item using)
    • Enemies can still use skill when Confused, but the direction will be randomized (Skills that locks on players and buffs are not affected)
    • We added a teleportation trap on each corner of the map for you, when fighting the boss Cursed Armor. So for those who think the boss is too hard, you can use it to escape if being cornered.
    • Drowsiness and Stunned can stop monster girls’ charging time, and stops their Super Armor State. (Boss and Giant Shadow has passive Super Armor State, so they will not be affected)
    • All the mushroom monsters’ debuff chances is now lowered
    • Elven Fighters’ Fire Kick can only be activated when she is on the same line with the player
    • Scorpion’s venom attack and Giant Spider’s web attack are now dealing 5 actual damage to HP.
    • Spawning Stone’s HP recused
    • Lower the increased attack number to the level up enemies. (Due to monster girls in the castle and forest are all level 2, so their attacks are decreased too)
    • Changes to some monster girl’s debuff resistance and elemental resistance
    • From now on, weapon with “weapon damage” skills would have its damage rating
    ex: When hit “Dash Strike”, “Heavy Strike”, enemies would take 1.3x damage
    When hit with “Spin Strike”, enemies would take 0.7x damage (yet we had lower the SP cost for Spin Strike)
    We will include damage rating for every skills in the future.
    • Some weapon’s attribute are boosted (not for the ones that’s stored in old save file, you would need to forge new ones)
    • SP cost adjustment to some skills
    • Poison damage buffed by 4 to monsters. Furthermore, the player will now die from poison.

    Other Changes:

    • If you are downed and there is no monster girls around, a random monster girl will appear to have her fun.
    • When you are downed, and there are more than 3 monster girls around, they will take turn to ride you.
    • Adding new items to Rezia’s shop: Confusion Potion, Blinding Potion, and Slowing Potion
    • Change the look for Rezia’s garden (It’s not a bug if it’s empty :D)
    • Minor adjustments to cut scenes
    • Optimized the soul bursting visual effect when enemies are defeated
    • Temporarily took the treasure chest in Doroelle’s bedroom.
    (The accessory in this chest is already in somewhere in the dungeon. We will bring this chest back with new accessories!)

    Bug Fix:
    The following bugs have been fixed.

    • Enemies walked into the wall
    • Enemies chasing players while being blinded in the same room. (When blinded, they should only chase you if you are within 2 tiles)
    • As your forging level increase, weapon you forged would also have its tenacity attribute increased. This did not come into effect.
    • When there is wall blocking, enemies still uses straight line directional skills.
    • When hiding at the end of a wall tunnel or corner, enemies still uses close distance skill to hit players diagonally (This fix dose not apply to long distance skills)
    • Abnormal continuous bouncing when players or enemies hit a wall after being attacked
    • Item shows up weird when choosing what items to keep after death
    • Gradually lags more and more when fighting boss
    • Weird bug when boss Cursed Armor got into “Break State”
    • Dungeon wall tunnel entrance blocked by Enchantment Table or chests
    • Minor bug fix

    Words from the dev team:

    We said that we wanted to take a break, but we actually didn’t…
    After the big update last month, we still kept working, and spent quite a bit of time writing stories for monster girls and the main storyline.
    Fixed some system bugs and some other stuff, but there is still quite a bit of other stuff we need to optimize on the system part. The new “Endless Mode” is still quite rough, we will find time to make it better.

    Sigh… There is just so much stuff to be done. When can we really have a good long sleep? Like those sleep-ins when you wake up, and it’s already in the late afternoon, you know?

    Anyways, Hope you guys like the new demo!

    Words from English translator (This part only shows up in english):

    I saw Halo Infinite being delayed to 2021, and I think it’s a good thing.
    Aside from the obvious graphic issue, I see it as they actually listen to fans.
    It shows that they care, and wanted to make good stuff.

    Honestly, I see that in Ason too.
    We really are just trying to create good games, and we really listen to fans’ feedbacks.
    Some of the fans might criticize us not having new girls every month or only making minor bug fix for new demos, but that’s just what it takes.
    Fixing smaller bugs early would help us avoid catastrophic/unfixable bugs later.
    It might result in game taking a longer to finish developing, but we won’t give up.

    Thanks again for sticking with us all this time!

    REVIEW

    Actually a fun game on top of having animated sex scenes and an interesting start to a story. Hopefully this game keeps going because the potential here is insane even outside of the sex. This is an RPGM game that actually does more than the standard boring turn based combat you've seen in 3 million others.
