I don't necessarily do one every day (I occasionally have evening plans), but all 31 are drawn within October. I'm usually only a day or so ahead and you can so easily fall behind again! I did, however, write most of the profiles in advance.
But essentially, I'm usually working on tomorrow's the evening before. I'm ahead at the moment (which is nice), but I have two days away after tonight so I'll be all caught up by Friday again.

Aw man, this reminds me still gotta finish that game. Got a lot of games on the backburner lately
It's pretty hard to get people to donate in the age of kickstarter, where everybody expects to get nifty rewards in return for their donations. Several donation sites already follow this system. But since you've been making daily kickass drawings of these characters for the past month I'll definitely throw some more money your way. Gotta get past the 60% mark atleast!
Aha, were you the mystery doner "Superdick" by any chance?
I did think perhaps next year I could have a shortlist and then a donor list, and donations of £10 or more will get to pick their own monster. I'll probably also do it for Child's Play or something too.

Being plain anonymous is for chumps!
I'd say the Penny Arcade crowd pretty much got the whole Child's Play deal covered, but if they happen to mention Nintober on their blog word'll spread hella fast. Having people pick their own monsters probably means a buttload of repeats and 3rd party villains though (but you were already thinking of doing the latter this year anyway so no big deal I suppose)
I'll also take this time to say I love the Nintober images McCullough's been drawing up this month. Dude's got a fun style
Nester the Lark: Hello, NinDB world! Post your shouts here! (But be careful not to wake the neighbors. )

nocturnal YL: Guys, guys! I can't believe what I found in Zelda 1! The game features an Elimination Mode that for some reason not many talked about! I wonder if it's fun? (Don't actually try it.)

nocturnal YL: Hey, I can edit shoutbox posts! This is already better than Twitter!

Nester the Lark: It seems like Cadence of Hyrule should be more popular than it is. Are people put off by the rhythm aspect? Or the randomly-generated maps?
Jul 24, 2020 14:01:59 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: ↑ Might warrant its own thread, but I think mixing rhythm and other genres usually resuls in gameplay too difficult for many. I can't handle it well either, judging from my scores in Dedede's Drum Dash.

nocturnal YL: ↑ For me personally, it simply hasn't been considered. It's a download-only game (until now) from a series I'm unfamiliar with and didn't feel like trying out.
Jul 24, 2020 23:02:40 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Ironically, I did create a thread for Cadence of Hyrule, but then deleted it thinking there wouldn't be any discussion on it. Maybe I'll go ahead and make a new one.

Shrikeswind: Something to bear in mind about the shoutbox if you’re not already aware: It doesn’t show up on the mobile version of the forums. This shouldn’t be a major problem, but it can make it difficult to get into discussions for mobile visitors.
Jul 26, 2020 1:40:18 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Also the more obvious character limit issues, and the format not really being conducive to longer-term discussion. It’s useful but limited; threads definitely still have their place.

Shrikeswind: (Honestly, Proboards mobile is pretty bad in general, but...)

Nester the Lark: Not sure if this works on all devices, but you can force the desktop version of the forum by scrolling all the way to the bottom and clicking the "Desktop" link at the lower right.

Shrikeswind: I’m aware. I’m typing this from my phone. I’m just pointing out that, for people who aren’t aware or who may be casually checking in on their phone, the shoutbox won’t be visible on

Shrikeswind: Is there a Discord for NinDB, by the way? It’s very popular with them there young’ns these days, so it might help activity.
Jul 26, 2020 22:07:47 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: There is no NinDB Discord. There was a brief discussion of it a few years ago, but nothing ultimately came of it. I rarely use Discord, myself.
Jul 27, 2020 8:58:28 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Hm. Seems like it might be a good idea if activity picks up. Not to be a pessimist but I do have my doubts that'll happen though.
Jul 29, 2020 3:00:10 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Okay not a Nintendo topic but I kinda need to talk about this because I just learned it and it's a thing so bleh.

Shrikeswind: You remember Disney's Hunchback of Notre Dame, right? So apparently, 5 year old me was incapable of discerning male and female in non-humans, because *apparently* there's a female gargoyle, and the goat's a boy.
