GearHead Caramel Cosplay

The color editor for GearHead Caramel is up and running; it still needs a bit of polish, but it shows off how much nicer the new color switcher is than the GH1/GH2 version. Just look at how glowey everything is!

Random Portrait Generator

I’ve been working on a paper doll type portrait construction system for GearHead Caramel. This is the first randomly generated portrait created by the system; the player will also be able to use the portrait generator to customize their character. Once I have randomized NPCs up and running I’ll be able to start work on …

More Papercraft

Turns out that the papercraft BuruBuru was very popular at Comic World Seoul, so I’ve given it a friend for next time. I am currently getting pdfs for these two models put together, and will upload them to itch.io and DriveThruRPG. I think I’m all papercrafted out now, so I really really hope to release …

If you’ve been following the development version of GearHead Caramel, you’ll see that I’ve been getting more work done on skills and the new electronic warfare/computers system.

Stealth and Searching Work

As the title says, stealth and searching now work, both for the player and NPCs. GearHead Caramel uses a Dungeon Monkey-style invocations system for all attacks and skill uses. One of the great things about this system is that skills contain their own usage instructions; instead of the NPC AI needing to know about every …

I have a story in this anthology so obviously it’s worth picking up even without thinking about all the other great …
