Sigh, sadly I'm one of those idiots to donate to the kickstarter. I saw a lot of people commenting about how RPG maker is a free software, to which Omo (or someone else on the team) just said that their team isn't working for free (although they made quite a bit from it…)
I do like very few of their designs, but I'd honestly never fork over the money for it. I did the kickstarter since I followed the omori blog and I just really like Omori.
I feel like an ass for getting upset over this, but a lot of projects I've seen have given backers first look at updates/only give the backers a look at updates and all kinds of goodies the public doesn't see and seeing that there's a whole update page on the omori game website for the entire public makes me feel a bit bitter… (not like there are any updates to begin with). It seems like Omo is busy with stuff but couldn't you also make time for this game that people have ALREADY GIVEN YOU MONEY FOR??
You can file a claim through kickstarter to get your money back.
Fuck people who do this shit.
I really wanted the crewneck and game but sigh, alas it was probably never meant to be… The most recent update from last month was actually about the game so it gives me hope but still… honestly what is taking so long :\ I understand they wanted to make a crazy long game but…

Hrm…I like some of it. I own pic related and a couple other things I wear less regularly. I do kinda feel like a bigger weeb than usual when I wear it, I will say that.
Her stuff is hit or miss. OP jacket has always been hilarious and ugly to me yet it's considered one of the more coveted pieces of hers.
I never donated to the game because she made her goal and then some so shrug.

Omocat is whatever, they were smart to capitalize on the weebcore trend and the illustrations are alright
Very very true.
I have yet to see anyone in these, so it makes me think these types of outfits are just bought for people to pose in.

I don't like omocat,from what I've heard/seen she likes shots,had a fit over it cause others won't approve,her work looks like ripoff's like the fishboy sweater looks like haru from free. And one of the tomagotchi models said they had problems with her.supposedly this is her.
File: 1436899600195.jpg (245.12 KB, 1280x800, haru.jpg)
I don't really care if people like shota.
But honestly from her blog entry when she withdrew her "shota" design it seemed like she was like all these other people who think "shota" refers to a kinda immature/boyish character (like Nagisa from Free!) and not a young boy/young boy porn.http://www.omocat-blog.com/post/101158424285/more-hey-everyone-a-lot-of-innocent-people
>i made a shirt with the word “shota” on it about a year ago. at the time, it didn’t have the same definition as it does now. it was a lesser-used word, and i was under the impression that shota and shotacon meant different things— shota loosely meant “anime boy, or young-looking man” while shotacon referred to the anime boy complex. the shirt was meant to be a parody of those sometimes-ironic “boy” shirts, and was not meant to condone pedophilia in any way. i’ve never even drawn anything sexual in my entire life.
Also Haru has a really generic design and looks like at least 5 other anime MCs.>>15943
compare with pic related. They look similar but like…generic anime boy with short black hair? OK.
i don't know anything about the whole tamagotchi thing but I think everyone in this industry has some kind of complaints about them from people they've worked with.
I don't care if you don't like her but eh these are dumb reasons.

Here's another pic of omocat,but that's probably it
I heard from /cgl/ she's really awkward IRL.
Someone mentioned her just kind of giggling when they asked if they could check the size of a shirt or sweater.
I don't really see it. It was just a pastel shirt with a doodle of an anime boy's head with the word "SHOTA" scrawled beneath it.
Wonder if anyone's selling it for big bucks on eBay as we speak
File: 1436980873247.jpg (302.62 KB, 960x1280, image.jpg)
And even if she did use "glitch" back then, at least she was creative about it. How can her work go from the top image to the bottom images? I thought an artist was supposed to improve
Lol I checked none so far I also checked her site, she most likely pulled them from her store >>16002>>16004
Right, I the liked the old designs,they were interesting and seemed to be inspired by video game culture and that's something I might consider buying and wear in public but her new one's are very "weabooish" and not much effort I guess :/
File: 1436984626038.jpg (141.65 KB, 500x345, omocattable.jpg)
I accidentally found this while checking out her artwork,she seems shy/kinda like what you said
File: 1437423626298.jpg (865.93 KB, 800x1200, omopkmn.jpg)
man this is exactly how I feel like her artwork used to be cool when she was still a student and now she whips something up in like 5 minutes and calls it a day. Her pokemon shirts are bullshit, look like they could have been drawn by literally anyone.
i-is it bad that I would actually want that toon link shirt? >>17662
The model is super cute!
Anyways, I live in SF so I have access to seeing her clothes before buying them in Japantown. The quality varies a lot between her clothes (probably because of different manufacturers) but they generally feel either really thin or not soft (not scratchy but just not soft either). Her glitch and robot stuff are really cute imo but I could never imagine anyone wearing her weeby anime shit except for tumblr weebs.
Looks like there's some angry comments from donators from December and that's it. The last update was the one from September.
I find it funny that Omocat won't respond to anyone on twitter about the game but constantly retweets all the uglies that buy her clothing.https://twitter.com/_omocat
File: 1452381475326.jpg (72.84 KB, 954x531, 1449871065954.jpg)
I like some of her more abstract/surreal designs that don't necessarily have an anime trope/reference and some of her drawings, but other than that I don't really care for the whole post-weeaboo hate thing. If someone likes anime, who cares? They shouldn't be overly open or self loathing about it. Just treat it as something normal and keep it to yourself.
I hate her lazy-ass Pokemon collection though
>stock art done in black and white and inversed
Then again Game Freak probably wouldnt let her do more than that
Since someone bumped the thread, I'll throw in my two cents.
Omocat is a kind of a bitch irl. Maybe it's because she's "shy", but we were tabled near each other years ago at a con and asking her and asking her simple questions resulted in the snottiest fucking replies.
At one point, something small and breakable had fallen between our tables where it could be broken. She wasn't talking, drawing, or helping customers so I tapped her on the shoulder to ask her if the item was hers. Her response was to stare at me with some weird grimace like 10 seconds before her bitchy table mate whipped around and responded for her. "Um no??! It's not???" Her tone was really weirdly aggressive.
Turns out it actually belonged to one of her friends? (Who's group had been blocking the damn exit from the tables for 75% of the weekend)
She was also mutual a with a table mate of mine, who approached her from the front of the table at a slow period.
>"Hi, are you Omocat? I'm [table mate], we follow each other on [website]!"
>"Oh, uh, I just wanted to say hi. Since we found out we were sitting so close!"
We stopped trying to engage her after that. Hilariously enough, she sent table mate a pm a few months later being like "Happy birthday!!! Love your art!!! Keep it up!!!" and she was so thrown off.
At this point I'm just really confused on how she manages to do business with literally anyone, let alone these big companies.
Holy shit, regardless she's "social anxious" or whatever the shit, she sounds like an insufferable person to be with in any kind of situation. I'm getting such strong obnoxious vibes just from reading this.
This is why I'm legit scared of having to deal someday with one of the "cool" people from tumblr. I always suspected their attitude was a fake and this proves it.
Plastic surgery? She's hideous and looks like an ogre. I wouldn't blame her, but seriously feel bad for the people who donated to her kickster.
Recently her prints have been reported to be coming off during washes, specifically her most recent one from the tamogotchi collection.
A lot of people would @ her on Twitter about it but she ignores them and continues to retweet weebs wearing her stuff.
I'm the anon from months ago with the Fishboy sweater. I love it, have never had a problem with it, even to this day it doesn't look bad and I've had it for almost 2 years. The quality of that was what possessed me to buy another one…
I recently bought the Wolfgirl sweater from a newer collection and wow. Haven't had any problems with the print (yet) but it lints up like CRAZY so I have to shave the fuzzies off all the time. It's like night and day.
Sucks knowing she won't respond if I contact her about it.

So according to her autobiography comic here:http://www.omocat-blog.com/post/11265164151/should-it-omocattumblrcom

This is okay, I guess, but all I want to know is whether she spent her fans' money meant to fund Omori on making herself slightly less ugly, and if the game itself is ever even going to come out (assuming she didn't just scam everyone with kawaii animu art and a Bo En song).
Why would anyone try to charge money to make something with free/easily pirated software? This was even before the PS Vita port was announced. Yume Nikki, .flow and 2kki were all made for free, and at least Undertale was made with something aside from fucking RPG Maker. Lisa is an exception, but I'm pretty sure Dingaling asked for less money, didn't make any promises he couldn't keep and actually met his predicted fucking deadline promptly.
Let's compare those three kickstarter campaigns, shall we?
Undertale>went live on 24 June 2013>provides a trailer and a demo, tells you where your money goes>goal: 5k, actually raised: 51k>some other artists help him out, however most of the work is done by toby (including programming)>estimated release date aug 2014>still has some work for homestuck to do and graduates school in april 2014 at that time>updates are once a month - really detailed progress updates>Undertale got released sep 2015>costs 10 $
LISA>went live on 14 nov 2013>provides a trailer, gameplay footage and a demo>goal: 7k, actually raised 16k>dingaling works on this all by himself, uses rpg maker engine >estimated release date may 2014>updates are once or twice a month, featuring music, ingame art and shirts>Lisa got released november 2014>costs 10 $
OMORI>went live on 21 april 2014>provides gameplay footage >goal: 22k, actually raised: 203k>team does the music and apparently also any engine related work (rpg maker), omocat does the concept art/pixel art? (not sure about this one)>estimated release date may 2015>updates are inconstant, on average once every three months, featuring promises and concept art>will be released at some time in 2016, trailer will be out on march/april 2016>will cost 15$

she draws a lot of shota and moved to Japan as a teacher. She also married someone just to get financial aid benefits.

I actually posted about this chick on /cgl/ last year after reading about the financial aid thing. What a small world we live in.https://archive.rebeccablacktech.com/cgl/thread/S8286912#p8291364
Why would Omocat want to associate herself with this pedo chick after the shota fiasco?
I don't think Melly or Omocat are actual pedos, just typical fujos.
It's odd if she really did use the Kickstarter money for plastic surgery, I thought she would have earned enough from her clothing line to pay for that type of thing on her own.
File: 1457479760850.png (523.56 KB, 523x1233, omocat.png)
This is a very interesting read. I was unaware Undertale had a kickstarter until i bought the game on Steam. I haven't tried LISA yet, though I've heard it's good. It's a shame OMORI doesn't have consistent updates compared to LISA and Undertale. I feel bad the backers have to wait even longer since they're working on a new game engine for OMORI and wasted money on a game with good potential.
How the fuck are they gonna port the game to the Nintendo 3DS? I'm sure it is not an easy feat and it will take even longer to port it; considering the changes in controls and possibly questioning whether they'll want in 3D or not to their personal tastes.
I'm having doubts Omocat is even working on OMORI. She's been doing streaming on Twitch drawing shirt designs for her Spring 2016 lineup and some requests here and there for viewers. Pic related.

Some of these look eerily similar to Mogeko's wadanohara, especially the eyes
I like their art but their attitude puts me off too. Lina, the girl with the pig looking nose, is a huge koreaboo and constantly writes in korean, I sincerely doubt she knows the language.
sage for OT
I thought I was alone, it's so hard to speak up about these things because I'm afraid I'll get labeled as a jealous cunt. I think Lina's art is nice but it always looks like a same faced KPOP boy.
Either way it's always been funny to me that Omocat and other asian artists generally get a free pass when it comes to using korean or japanese even if they're from Taiwan or something.
File: 1459372423175.jpg (468.34 KB, 847x776, tumblr.jpg)
Of course it can't be "cultural appropriation" because they are a "type of asian" too.
They think they're so cute. Pic related with how she sees herself and how she actually looks.
I 100% agree with you. It really just get on my nerves when other Asians who are not Japanese or Korean get a free pass
"Buhcus thir azin 2!!!"
I thought I was only one. I'm glad that there are other people who notice this too.>>84016
I also wanted to say something too,but I'll probably end up being attacked by their whiteknights
To be fair most people will draw themselves either more or less attractive, so I don't mind that. >>84043
I'm really happy to hear more people share my opinion, especially since I find it so hard to put into words so I could never talk about it publicly unless I want to get branded as a gossiping shitlord.
>>83653>They seem to have a tendency to pretend you don't exist unless you're popular, which seems to be a thing within the entire asian-american/cali community.
Isn't this the case for pretty much anyone who's Internet famous? Especially artists. I'm by no means a famous artist anywhere, and I only interact with artists who are mostly famous in my country, not in America/worldwide, but still. They'll mostly asskiss each other and try to get the maximum profit out of each other as well, especially the tumblr crowd. Why talk to someone who won't give you any notes?
I don't want to sound butthurt, it's just a general impression I get. >>84040>>84042
B-but only teh evil white people can be racist!!!11!!!! Don't you know about muh power structure?! Check ur privilege
I agree with the first part, that's why I found it so difficult to word. I don't expect them to talk to me or anyone else but somehow they still came off as kinda distant and only every talking to their core circle of friends.
I can't always blame them for that, I used to talk to someone who would asskiss every semi-famous artist and above by sending them messages and it was incredibly obvious she was trying to get attention from the cool kids.
I'm amazed with how little people seem to have brought out the issue publicly. It's like Omocat gets a free pass because everyone sees her as 'poor starving artist' even if it's obvious she isn't by how popular her clothing is.
200k dollar is money you can buy a house with yet she isn't even able to produce a RPGmaker game with an entire team behind it for that money.
At this point I feel like she doesn't even care about the game anymore and it's just a thing to be finished sooner or later.
It feels like she's doing everything BUT work on the game.
No one listens and since tumblr laps up their art no one there is going to call them out. She just ignores all the backers who are complaining and the only form of reply people are getting usually comes from the other person working on it.>>84224
Urgh I haven't read this yet but god it pisses me off. I've been in some of her streams before and they are really hard to get into since they usually hit the viewer limit super fast. This really should be a backer only thing, her twitter followers get more updates than we do.
File: 1459541596252.png (238.96 KB, 686x806, Untitled.png)
On the note of omocat using Japanese, I don't think she knows the language at all.
I grew up with Japanese so the way she wrote hikikomori here is really weird. On typed text the き,こ, and り characters may connect depending on the font and in handwriting how fast you write it. But looking at her shirt I barely registered her "ko" and "ri" for what they are.
I think she's just copying from google translate or something.
Geez, Omocat is an idiot. Wouldn't it kill her to be "Hmm, OMORI hasn't had any decent updates besides art? Let me fix all of that!". Aside from her doing art designs for her shirts, this was the primary thing she should've been doing this whole time after OMORI got funded. Having your backers on the edge of their seat wondering where their money went is not a good sign after having a slated 2015 release.
The more i read on how she's not even updating her backers anything, the less it wants me to even purchase her shit -chuckles aloud-.
Maybe you'll hate me or think I'm pathetic but damn, I have to admit I am jealous.
I wish my shitty ten minute PS doodles of internet memes with questionable "Japanese" written underneath would get me money. I wish every piece of art I create would get me showered in praise. I wish every sketch I posted would recive attention. Hell, I wish I could get a tenth of the attention on anything
she does gets. I wish people would donate ridiculous sums of money to found my dream projects.
And on top of all, she has an army of whiteknights to her defends whenever someone dares to raise their voice anywhere else than on anonymous chinese cartoon image board.
Honestly though how is she still getting away with this? 200k is not a small sum of money. Is everyone afraid of tumblr whitenights, do they just get ignored or what is happening?
If you check the tumblr tag it's almost half ugly tumblrnistas wearing her clothes or people saying they hate omocat.
>she has an army of whiteknights to her defends
She has this irl too, people are always waiting at her hand and foot. Even when she goes to the bathroom.
Eh, Taiwan was previously colonized by Japan and some people grew up with parents or grandparents who were educated in Japanese (I have a few friends who are multilingual because of this). In that sense, yeah, it does give them a free pass, since there's nothing wrong with using Japanese if you actually speak it.
But it doesn't seem like omo has any grasp of the language. I wonder how she got the deal with Nintendo to do the Pokemon shirts
Nintendo USA probably facilitated the communication or Nintendo JP had a translator contact her.
I wonder how disappointed Nintendo was when they saw her boring af Pokemon shirts.
its like all of them have that shitty こ that looks like て because iirc, the crewneck sweater uses a simplier, cleaner font and I still ended up misreading it the first time. My japanese is shit but I still picked up on that stupid misleading thing and it irks me to no end.
I tried to file a claim with my bank even though it's been so long and they didnt necessarily tell me it couldnt be done, but they wouldnt let me process it since I have a joint account so I'll try again once I get back to the US to actually do it…
Omocat prints her clothes mostly on gildan, there's no reason for her shit to cost as much as it does. I'm still waiting for some chinese company to make cheaper knock offs.
Similar brands that are better than omocat are
Adding to this anon, Punimelt.http://punimelt-shop.com/
Nothing against Omo personally but please support these people instead. I follow both Punimelt and Milkbbi and they both really care about their products and their fanbase.
File: 1459721966490.gif (1.58 MB, 300x400, juice.gif)
aahh I love punimelt and Milkbbi
I like them waaay better than omo tbh and their stuff is reasonably priced
I like Ocean in Space.http://www.oceaninspace.com/shop/
They may not be your cup of tea but their shirts are pretty colorful and cute. Oceantann is also willing to make sizes bigger then a Small, Medium and Large if you're bigger then that which is pretty neat.
I like how they both were put in the spot we can make comparison s
. Punimelt with lolicon and omocat with shotacon. Except punimelt was mature about but omocat was the opposite about it imo
Make the comparison image!
And I don't know why you guys are so surprised, Asians are super tribalistic. The whole collectivist culture makes everyone about mentally 5 years behind their physcal age, and someone as awkward as omo is probably even more behind.

File: 1459746519023.jpg (75.06 KB, 400x271, ohay_it__s_me_by_traptastic.jp…)
The words "shotacon,shota,loli etc…" get thrown around alot loosely. I mean take a look at a 4channer. Be in the shoes of a normie. Your more than knowledgeable anime lover.your run of the mill tumblr user. See the difference?
Ofc little girls/boys arent gonna wear that, and a older girl wearing a shirt that says "loli" does not make her any younger. But what I think that people are triggered
by is because of the word itself. If omo sold the shirt without "shota" nobody cares, but then they see "shota" you know whats next…imo ofc
I did, and they told me since it was successful and ended, they couldn't do anything about refunds. The only person who can issue them is Omo herself.
(it's been a long time since i emailed them so it was something along those lines. A lot of people have been reporting the kickstarter but idk what it takes for ks to actually step in and issue the refund themselves if they even have the power to do that at this point)
Kickstarter doesn't do refunds themselves ever as far as I"m aware.
Seeing all those articles around the time the kickstarter was live, praising the concept, is kind of hilarious now.
why is like every asian girl called tiffany>>84995
i'm pretty sure she's already spent all of her money on personal shit and issuing refunds would be admitting to failure anyways
last row in the middle looks as if it was completely traced from DSP's sprites jeez
i bet there's at least some "inspiration" got from their games flowing into omori
why the fuck is she trying to copy gashigashi? Fuck off omo>>82934>>82935>>83980
Also this shit disgusts me. She's OBVIOUSLY referencing mogeko for those middle two. I've always hated the fact that she's been making money off of ripping off other people but she's 'popular' so no one calls her out on it

She makes the most money of sales in Japan tho. They sell Omocat at a bunch of popular otaku-type fashion stores like PARK (http://www.park-harajuku.com/
you're not alone, I guess she was contacted? Assuming these collaborations are chosen by people who figure out what's trending and Omocat's clothing certainly kind of is/was.
Also has there been any more news about the game? If this was any other person you'd see tons of complaints everywhere but I feel like Omocat is able to avoid criticism a lot so far.
File: 1462826539420.png (147.17 KB, 1295x487, omocat.png)
I guess she suffers from social anxiety but I doubt she can start a company just by emailing people.
I was a pretty big fan of omoriboy comics during my shut in days.
The glitch girl sweaters were pretty cool but everything omocat sells is unnecessarily expensive and her fan base puts me off of buying anything. >>84640
For as long as I've been a shitty weeaboo Shota and loli by themselves means "cute, young boy or girl"
Shotacon and Lolicon are people obsessed with these "cute boys / cute girls" whereas these terms as a genre of doujinshi or comic is always CP
>>97377>fixed RMMV memory leak>team has been working on stuff for the game ("tile sets, sprite sheets, map layouts, stat balancing" etc)>added a new dungeon to the game bc of story revision>omo hired an assistant to help with game artwork>music is almost finished>trailer for the game to be used as PV when the game comes out>game is scheduled to be released at the end of this year
Nothing really interesting but good to know actual progress is being made on the game. Like, the two years or whatever she spent not giving us any fucking updates because of that NDA, she could've given updates similar to this.
This game better fucking come out at the end of this year. I feel like omo and her team JUST started to actually work on the game and the rest of the time were just being lazy fucks. Like wow, we finally get a cohesive update for once!
I can see why it sells, but it baffles me how casual she seems to be about everything. Doesn't help she has a million fans willing to hush people who dare ask why there's no game yet.
You're running a business, not an etsy with 2 sales a month. >>97421
The whole NDA thing seems awfully convenient "oh yeah sorry we never showed progress it's just that we ttly couldn't show any" I mean it's not like she was upfront about having one anyway.
If those people can't even speak up on an ANON board, logic follows that it's from one of her close friend groups which means it's probably petty ass inner circle shit.
Do you really expect people to blindly hate on this girl from just "she's had drama… BUT WE DON'T KNOW WHAT IT WAS!!!" ? Come now.

So where's that omori game?
old af but
ngl my parents aren't the best either. I'd be so pissed off to be shown to the world as "my mommy was terrible to me" if my kid lived a cushy life.
It's a trend for artists online to make shitty comics about their parents. From their computers and tablets. In a house. Eating food.
seeing this everytime I come to this thread pisses me off.
OMFG i thought i was the only one
i went to an arts school where even being lower middle-class was rare and am fucking surrounded by a community of ungrateful little shits that try to profit off of fake-edgy i hate my parents uwu bullshit
File: 1475874150625.jpg (208.84 KB, 1200x513, CtoUqM2UEAAx8-t.jpg)
So it looks like Omocat is out of animu design ideas and is paying her friends to make them for her?
What the actual fuck is this fashion line
So disappointed fangrrlZ is working with omocat
Fangrrlz pride themselves with their quality organic inks and shit, why are they working with omocat who mass produce
Same here, been following him for a few years now. he is a lovely person and so good with customer feedback/communication. Wish he'd produce more of the old clothing like that amazing backpack but seems to be working things up again. Also the clothes are loved by normies, you dont stick out like a sore thumb like omocat.>>111978>>112006
If your parents have caused mental/physical damage to you of course. If your living the good life with your group of friends and have to appear damaged on the internet…no. Was this girl hit/kicked? No. Possible metal health issues? Maybe. Does she have a support group/what seems to be a good relationship now? Yes.
this girl pisses me off but i want some of her less weeby shirts shit.
I'm pretty sure she's met most of those people in real life (Noticed a lot of those artist from AX and omo was at AX too) so you showing them her plastic surgery wouldn't change much?
Kaela Camille "Poiv" especially knows everything about it since omocat and her are BFFS

Found this while looking at Omocat's Facebook page.
I've always had a similar /r/, but does anyone know of any solid stores where I can buy stuff like this that isn't omocat?
I don't want to support her, but all the other stuff I find is either reselling her shit, moonspeak, or sketchy and will be gone in the next month.
Why do the shitheads always have to be the popular ones…
Hey guys, I'm the who made this comparison >>78165
a little over half a year ago. I thought it would be nice to take a look on OMORI status as of now.
Some of them are my own speculations based on the info provided on the website, updates etc, so please don't take this as official information since I could be wrong.
What we know so far about OMORI:>surreal psychological horror RPGmaker game>you play as the boy OMORI>you have lost your memories>you travel between two worlds: "WHITE SPACE" (where you are a depressed kid with no memories, the world is black and white, present time, possibly limited by only your room) and ??? (everything here is colourful, you probably get there through a portal (your laptop), past time/your memories mixed with the present)>you will have 3-4 party members, only available in the colourful world, they are your childhood friends/neighbors>the game will mainly take place in the colourful world, which is your neighborhood memory probably?>meaning that the story could be you replaying OMORI's memory>i'm not sure what the main goal of this game is tbh. you will definitely be getting some memories back while playing, but i feel like it's going to be a "explore the world"-thing>there could be some twist at the end (probably revealed through a new/old missed friend, someone might replaced your memories or something) since it's mentioned that you wouldn't want to find out the truth>there are dungeons with silly themes (e.g. based off bread and pastries)>the battle system is based on emotions and will feature heartrate>the game will feature several types of media "such as watercolor, pencil, acrylic paint, clay models, photographs, different types of digital art, and pixel art">70 NPC's "each with their own story which you can invest your time in if you choose". some (or all? nah) will have quests for you (it is mentioned that the npc's are only for one side of the game, but since i suspect the other side of the game is only going to be your room.. yeah you get the idea.)>cutscenes are animated, done traditionally and first person>2-4 endings
I think that's about it. As for the update status:
>battle system near complete>song drafts are complete, working on sounds>maybe cutscene animations are also done>"For the past few months, the team has been mostly working on tile sets, sprite sheets, map layouts, stat balancing, adding quests, and collaborating with dialogue, flavor text … so I guess basically everything!" (aka I have no idea about the status of the rest of the game - hopefully near done or full done?)>6+ people working on the game, each team has at least two members (writing could be OMOCAT only tho)>will be released december 2016/january 2017>no trailer until then, the trailer will be used as a promotial video when the game is out
As mentioned here >>85010
OMORI is still listed under "significant risk of failure, apologies, money spent"
Their status/summary of updates for the game says the following (timeline now-past):>August: Backers only update to say development is hard and the lead has health issues, but they'll be done by December-January but also there was a delay because they found some bugs. >June: Update to say that they have almost fixed the RPGMaker bug and are making progress. >Apr: Update to say there may be a delay due to RPGMaker and there are no updates because they don't want to spoil things. >Mid-jan: update with a few screenshots, backers unsatisfied. The better part of a year's silence, high backer dissatisfaction. >Update in September to say the silence was due to contractual stuff, but nothing since.
tl;dr OMORI could be out at the end of this year/early next year, almost three years after the kickstarter campaign
Whatever happened to poiv anyway? She hasn't updated her tumblr in a year or something, I used to like her art.

she's a greedy weeb

Here it is. It's not much of a tag as it is printed on the inside of the hoodie. The tag with her logo just has her slogan on the other side.
wow holyshit, even more reason not to buy her stuff

Also adding, I own 2 omocat shirts. The black one is the crunchyroll collaboration shirt which I purchased from their store so I'll givemail her the benefit of the doubt on that one, crunchy may well have handled all production.
The second one is one of the sub dye shirts though purchased directly from her store. I vaguely recall cutting an itchy tag out of the sub dye shirts so sorry I can't give more info on that one.
I backed Omori and I've been getting pretty frustrated with it. Even if she's bad at talking to people it irritates me that she keeps regularly releasing collections and seems to be doing no work on her game. If it's HER GAME then what the hell is this NDA business? If she's gonna blame an NDA for not being able to release info then why didn't she rewrite it so she could at least make regular updates. With $200k she surely has enough to pay a lawyer to do that for her as well as having more than enough left over to cover all other expenses.
*I'll give her
Also sorry pic goes sideways when you open it, I don't know why it's doing that..
The crunchyroll one looks like an american apparrel label so that's good. The printing process for the crunchyroll shirt is probably handled all by them and not omocat.
The second however, fucking COLOMBIA??? I get so grossed out when smaller brands use non-american shirts, that's fucking disgusting. Especially since we've already proven her rich daddy takes care of her and that her skimping out on materials like this shouldn't be happening.
About your Omori backing though, I would ask for a refund at this point. It's almost 3 years past the estimated finish date right? That's fucked.
Isn't all American Apparel production done in the US though? I'm the one who posted the pic and sorry the tag is rough, I've had the shirt for a couple years so it may be hard to read but it says "Made in Nicaragua" on it.
Kind of not relevant since production was probably handled by CR anyway, just a note.
I've seen a couple people saying they tried Kickstarter and they can only get a refund directly from Omocat. I tried emailing a while ago regarding an address change but never got a response. I can try emailing again but at this point, seeing hardly anyone get responses, it's pretty discouraging.
Yes American Apparel is made by the US therefore no slave/child labor is involved.
and that really sucks, Kickstarter needs to get it together…

I was working with her on the project but quit because of the unprofessional work environment
Turnover is high, people keep quitting because Tiffany can't socialize and doesn't know what the game will actually be. Basically she wants to make an anime, not an interactive game. Ffs how do weeaboos back this shit is beyond me

Omo's name is Tiffany? Anyways, she's an idiot. You can't make a game and expect it to be the next Undertale or some other hot game that came out years ago. You just make it because you want to make it a reality and enjoy it, that's it. If that's the case, we'd have shitty game developers making games just so they can have a huge but cringy fanbase and merchandise in Hot Topic and Gamestop.
I forgot to mention this in my above reply.
Before you left, was Toby Fox still part of the team? I heard people say Toby was working on the game and it would be delicious if he did leave this trainwreck to fall off the tracks.
Why would people pledge to this shit, holy fuck theres a shit ton of 1.99$ steam games that are gradeA and fun / intruiging but nah lemme just kickstart this game that just looks like a tumblr weebs take on games like Mad Father and IB
But ey i never understood why people bought most of the omo cat shit in the first place tho so i might be biased or just enjoy games made by people who have actual passion
File: 1486006418157.png (50.94 KB, 181x149, PgF2Ojq.png)
"People just view games as an easy way to get cash and gain popularity when the best games are the ones that have actual passion behind it."
I couldn't help but think of Yandere Simulator kek.
Anyways, I agree 100%. I get the impression SOME passion was worked into this from the beginning, but slowly died down as the months and weeks went by. It feels like Omocat was too ambitious trying to be make another cool and interesting like Undertale, and then having these little breakdowns because she feels her game isn't good enough. That is not the mindset of a game developer, that's someone who doesn't realize that making a video game is not as easy as drawing a picture of an anime girl and slapping it on a website's t-shirt making application.
I'm sure the development process for this game is REALLY unorganized since people are leaving and these delays. Hell, Toby Fox was at least giving details about the development of Undertale via Kickstarter. As for Omori, i see nothing at all but one-off posts about them apologizing for the lack of updates, why they haven't done anything, how they had to use a different game engine and yada yada. It makes me feel bad for the people who shelled out hundreds of dollars for this game.
If this keeps up, then i await the day until Omori ends up featured and discussed in a failed kickstarter video from Larry Bundy Jr's Youtube channel.
>Is a creator legally obligated to fulfill the promises of their project?
More on https://www.kickstarter.com/blog/accountability-on-kickstarter
I think it would be hilarious if people started filing claims. Legally they are owed a refund as per kickstarters ToS. The creator agrees to these terms when making the kickstarter too.
>>180168>won't be as good as Undertale
Uh, what? Undertale was enjoyable, but it's by no means the best indie game. The graphics are bad, it had forced chiptunes, and the engine it was made with is pretty garbage. Do we know if Tiffany's game is being programmed from scratch?
It can't possible be as good as Undertale or the Homestuck game for a few reasons as well.
1) Homestuck already has a fandom from it's comic, so regardless of how the game plays, it'll have tons of players
2) Undertale was not a total fluke. The creator had a lot of experience making other games like Earthbound fan games. All the work from those really shows.
She can't possibly think she can just get success from a box like that, can she? She's not a programmer and she has no "fans" outside maybe her clothing.

>>181123>"switching from rpgmaker vxace to rpgmaker mv"
How many times have they switched this? Come on, make up your mind already Omo. At the very least, you should've came to a decision on which RPG Maker program to use since Day 1.
Honestly, i'm not even surprised the game got delayed again. I wonder if she'll keep her promise shipping out the backer prizes. Can't wait for the complaints.
>>181123>omo says she cant provide many previews bc spoilers
Honestly, as an indie dev being so secretive about your game is the worst you can do. And if your game can be spoilered so easily, chances are it's not that good.
She should just release it already and not worry too much if it's better than undertale or not. It's her first game, why would someone in that position even aim at creating the next undertale? That's ridiculous.
Also, when you pledge 200k for your project, you have a responsibility to provide that product to your backers. It's almost three years man, "a good game needs time" is not an excuse when she has the time to make apparel and isn't able to make decent updates.
I think NiTW has amazing art/sound and you're right, the game begins to deteriorate after the first arc
At least it came out after it's kickstarter backing ending unlike Omori
17 year old me would have loved it but the adult me thinks Mae is petty and needs to accept responsibility for her faults. IDK maybe that's what they were going for in the narrative but from the way the creator seems, I don't think it was intentional at times.
But yeah. It did deliver at least. That is a plus.
File: 1489610572065.png (527.53 KB, 753x585, wheres our stuff.PNG)
It's been 3 weeks since this update. This is the latest update and nothing else has been posted about the goods being sent out.
Omo never fails to disappoint.
Kinda bummed, I bought it and thought the art was quite good but so far Mae is just a whiny kid who's not ready to be a young adult and yeah, quite obnoxious too. I get it that she suffers from anxiety and I relate but even then, I always aknowledged my actions and tried to think about others once in a while. All she goes is me me me so far, so I was hoping she'd grow up during the game :/
Plus it's pretty boring, I should have just watched some let's play on youtube.
I can't remember if she was the one who said it or one of her (maybe misinformed) fans, but didn't she complain about her art school debt?
I mean at this point I don't know what to believe anymore. Just wish she'd own up to the delays and not just pretend it's in no way her fault.

this dude just made an order so she is absolutely selling these
a lot of comments here are so hateful and pointless, I think that everybody is allowed to wear whatever the fuck they want to wear and everybody can also have they own opinions about what beautiful is.
Im not gonna defend omocat in every aspect, but you people have to realize when you are just being an asshole.
Do I like her old style more than the new one? mostly I do, but who am i to tell the artist what shit they should draw to please ME, they know what they wanna do and what kind of people they wanna reach, and im free to say, 'well, i dont think i like this so i dont have to buy it' thats it.
i have never bought anything from her because its expensive, i agree with that, and im disappointed to read that the clothes is not even high quality (i know that you have to pay for original design, but i think that the material should meet the expectations at least)
I have no idea why the omoriboy game has been so delayed and i do think its concerning since the team made a huge amount of money on kickstarter, but what have this to do with her being 'ugly' or whatever?
Also i dont think that being socially awkward is too much a big deal, of course she could work on it but people could also recognise that there is different kind of people outside and not everyone is trying to be mean or haughty just because they're not immediately nice. And yeah maybe she is a jerk but i dont know here so i cant say and i dont care.

Why are you even here lol…
Also, no one is telling Omo what to draw, just their own opinion that the new line is shit. I'm also free to say "the designs look like she put zero effort into it and the people who are willing to fork over an exorbitant amount of money for it are idiots.">>188469
I would absolutely recommend against buying it. Don't know how the designs on the t-shirts are printed, but on the sweater it feels sort of like a thick layer of paint. I'll come back and tell you how it holds up in the wash (my assumption is that it'll probably be fine since it'll be the first time in the wash), but regardless I don't think her work is worth it anymore. I'd never seen a Omocat sweater in person, but I always used to think they'd be higher quality than what I got. I'd rather give my money to other artists tbh.

>>188822>I'd rather give my money to other artists tbh.
Same tbh, there's a lot more artists now making really nice clothes with really nice designs that rival omo's shit. I'm glad the weeb clothes market is getting more competitive
I really like the way they advertise their products, it's so cute!
i'm pretty doubtful you actually worked with her? no one has gotten onto or left her project in the past year or so, even prior to the ks announcement where the staff list was updated. unless you're talking about working on omori a very very long time ago or something
not really defending omo, but there's no point spreading fake deets when she's pretty good at fueling drama on her own
Also, samefagging, but according to sources upthread and otherwise, her name is Tiffany Liao. "Liao" is a Chinese name. Sounds pretty Asian to me.
I'm starting to suspect Omo sent her friends here to false flag and spread false information or something.

Her new FALL LINE preview with guest artists is out, there's an artist that's one of my favourites so I'm gonna buy it.
Ironically, my first omocat purchase was from her halloween line last year, but I'm more interested in the guest artists than her actual work..
