I'm Bringing Sexy Back (1 Reply)
Hi everyone.

I haven't been here in years. There's a lot to update everyone on, foremost is that: this site will not be going down for the foreseeable future. I am (obviously) still making payments on the webspace, and I have no intentions on letting this site (which has been a large part of my life, for better or worse) go under. People did a lot of work to keep this site alive and it would be disrespectful to all their efforts for me to just let it all get deleted like that. I appreciated, and continue to appreciate, the work that everyone has put into this site.

Second of all, I have spent the last few years doing hospital and medical work. It has eaten up A LOT of my time which is why it's been radio silence on my end. Further, when I finished medical school, I took a good long look at my life and decided a lot of it was found lacking, and I didn't want to be that guy anymore. There was a lot of soul searching, and a lot of awful things happened, but I'm still here, and if any of you would still like to connect, I'll be here and I'll keep my line open. If you'd like to connect on social media, shoot me a PM and I'll give you a discord or LINE or something.

Finally, Sting hasn't been dead but it has been in a passive state, which means most content updates for this site will be just slow updates to games already listed. Again, it's thanks to the tireless efforts of people who love the Dept Heaven games that the content is available, and I appreciate all their efforts.

Yggdra Union PSP Sprites & Face Collection (2 Replies)
THE HAPPENING IS HAPPENING. Thanks to Rai, we finally have even more content from YUPSP. Today we bring you the complete Face Collection (Battle faces as well as Dialogue faces) as well as gigantic animated sprites. One note about the sprites, as it says on the page, we don't yet have any of the palette swaps, so many things are missing. It's still awesome to have this, though, and Rai may or may not continue to try to figure out the swaps. If he ever finds them, we will of course update it.

Enjoy and pray for Kitten.

Wow, a real update! (No Replies)
As people surely know by now, Yggdra Union is now out for people who have phones. Specifically, iPhones and Androids. We also did some stuff tonight though. I can't believe it.
  • Updated release dates on the game gateway because it hadn't been updated since like 2012 and it also neglected Australia entirely, just like the world does every day. YUMobile is there now, too!
  • Added official Gloria Union art of characters, cards, and banners. And by that I mean we just finally made them accessible since they'd been on the site for ages, and really, they were just snatched from Sting's openly-available fankits. Thanks to me for wrangling with labyrinthine code alone and apparently copying and pasting the right things and making sure all 50 files of nonsense code had what they needed for this simple task of displaying some pictures.
  • Added the YUMobile LINE Stickers. These are seriously adorable, and get pretty funny if you can read Japanese too. Thanks EmptyWizard for getting those together for us, and thanks Walrus for wrangling with code for hours when I could have done it (inefficiently) in much less time.
More is coming (RAI'S GONE AND DONE IT GUYS GET HYPE), maybe even as soon as tomorrow, but I think it might take a bit more time so I thought I'd just post this now. I'm also going to remind everyone that we have a Discord server now. It turns out it didn't die after New Years! Get in there if you haven't already! https://discord.gg/jy7TkFg

Is Sting Dead Like Us? (No Replies)
The answer is no. It is true that Sting has been focusing on mobile and other people's games, namely Compile Heart and Aquaplus, but there's some Sting-only news to be had! They've put Baroque Syndrome on iPhone and Android. Yep, mobile stuff, and an ancient game not known by many.

But don't lose hope. They're currently hiring game designers and 2D and 3D graphic designers. I also hate their new site design and can no longer find the weekly writings of the weather! >:(
