The future of this website
As you can see, my new website Pastelkattogames.com is up an running. The plan is to keep this site up until flash is completely shut down OR when the ad revenues are lower than the hosting costs of it. I will not update this website with new games, fixed games or anything, I will simply let it slowly go down 🙂
2020-05-05 – Changes with the latest game (Cat Adventurer)
I’ve made the decision to remove the portrait format of the game. I already made the decision to not make any more portrait HTML5 games (as the extra time and effort they require is not worth the small amount of players they get). This game was supposed to be the last one with the portrait format but I’ve discovered some major performance issues with the games and I need to do some time consuming changes to the HTML5 version. I am not going to do all of these changes twice so I have opted for removing the portrait version and focus on getting the landscape version up and running properly. If Animate CC (the program I’m using for game development) is adding proper responsive options to the HTML5 games (right now it just stretches the game out, not allowing items inside it to move with the edges of the screen like in the apps) or if I figure out how to change the code to make it properly responsive. Then I will make the HTML5 games fully responsive in the future. But for now for the websites I will stick with portrait formats. I’m very sorry for my iPhone users that can’t get the android app (which allows for portrait format in the phone), maybe in the future I’m able to provide iOS apps for you so playing in your phone is easier!
2020-03-17 – Missangest is becoming Pastelkatto!
Time for a change! This is something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time and now I’m going for it!
TL:DR I’ve disliked “Missangest” for a long time but have postponed changing it because it’s expensive, complicated and I know people hate change. But the name is seriously making me feel like crap every time I see it and I hate being called “miss anxiety”. So it had to go.
When I picked the name I just picked something that wouldn’t generate anything major on google. I followed the tip “put two random words together and you have a username” and all of the cute ones were taken. So eventually I settled with the first option that did work, this option was the combination of “miss” and “angest” (ångest being Swedish for anxiety). My intention was never for it to be read as miss anxiety, hence that I picked the Swedish word and match with the english miss to make a random word. But yeah, should have known better! Since then I’ve been “miss anxiety” and I do not like that at all, that said, it was my fault for chosing that username to begin with!
Anxiety has been a big issue for more than half of my life, affecting it greatly. Because of several factors it’s hard to treat. I have learned somewhat how to live with it, I know what to do when it happens. Still it drains me. Some periods I’m high energy and I can do things despite the trong symptoms but then I run out of energy and my coping mechanisms gets more destructive and I lose motivation. The older I get, the more frustrated I get about my situation and the more hopeless it feels that I’m going to live the rest of my life with a brain constantly telling me that I’m in danger.
Knowing this I hope you understand why I rather not have that word describe my business which is something I’m working hard on and use as a motivation to keep fighting. It doesn’t even represtent the work I do and sometimes I even feel embarassed explaining the username for people interested in looking up my stuff just because it’s so depressing and easily comes off as “edgy”.
So I’m now going with Pastelkatto! Pastel being well, pastel. I wanted something art/color related. Katto is a Swedish touch on catto (as pastelcatto was already taken on several pages). Swedish word for cat is katt. I wanted to include cats because well, I love cats and hey, I draw a lot of them (especially Nils). It also fits my logo (which again, yeah it’s Nils). Is it more original? Probably not. Does it make me happy to read? Yes. Do I feel that it better represent the work I do and is a word I wouldn’t feel embarassed explaining to others? Yes!
I get that some people will continue calling me Missangest and doing the change at this time hurts my business. That’s why I wanted to do it sooner rather than later. The longer I postpone this change the worse it will get. I can’t control what other people say, but I can do what feels right to me.
Social medias are easy to change. This is sudden though because I wanted to do everything I can to avoid people finding out the new name and hogging the username on pages I use and get me to buy the usernames (yep, people actually do that, I think it’s illegal to do that with domains in some areas but certainly not illegal to do on social medias, just a shit thing to do). I rather change them than create new pages, so people won’t have to refollow. So changing everything at once with no heads up was the way to go (although I did give a heads up on patreon, but at that point I hadn’t decided which username to go with yet). Website and games are a bit more complicated. So the change will be gradual.
I know I’ll get many comments from people disliking changes so I wanted to explain why this change was so important to me. Sometimes you just gotta bite the sour apple and do something that will be better in the long run. And with that I’ll end this wall of text 🙂
2020-03-07 – Another game fixed
Another broken game found, this one has now been fixed:
2020-01-26 – Website will be undergoing some changes
I have used the same wordpress theme for many years now, this theme is no longer being updated and it’s starting to have some issues. I have found another I’m fairly sure I can tweak to be fairly similar to what I have now (but better), the problem is that it doesn’t support flash. That’s not surprising giving the end of flash in December 2020. As long as some people can still play the flash games, I still want to have them up. So I may not change the theme completely until later this year. I will however do as many other changes as possible before then so the transition will be smoother. So just a heads up in case you browse my website and it looks or work weird, it’s likely me testing some new stuff, I’ll do my best to do any changes that may affect the ability to play games very quick but if you browse my site and it looks weird and no games are showing up, try again in an hour and it will likely work as usual again! My hope is to be able to improve my website so it looks and works a bit better 🙂
2020-01-02 – One more game fixed
This game has now also been fixed:
Please note, these fixed games are all flash games. From what I know they will be up until december this year, so enjoy them while they last! A crying shame all flash games will be lost, I can only hope more of these great dress up game devs will make the move to HTML5, even though I struggle with it myself. For now it’s the best alternative we got.
2019-11-29 – Another game fixed
Again, a broken game has been fixed, I’m sorry about this inconvenience, this one should work just fine again:

2019-09-01 – One more game fixed + comments enabled on this page!
Sorry about the comment issue! I had comments enabled on this page, but disabled in some other options which were overriding this option. Now they are up and you can comment here as well!
This game has also been fixed now:
With the disaster release of the HTML5 avatar creators, I have a lot of work to do to get revenues up again so I don’t have time to go through all flash games (or rinmaru games, which seems to be the ones that has become broken on my website), besides, some browsers have already pulled support for flash so the motivation to get these going isn’t very high. Still if there’s a particular game you like and find it broken, let me know and I get that one game sorted out for you (this only applies if you get a white screen when trying to play it, any other bugs like a black box or purple box is an entirely different issue).
2019-08-19 – Issues with the New Missangest Avatar Creators
I’m aware of the performance issues. I’ve been up all night after completely reassembling the entire HTML5 games from scratch and it’s still not performing acceptable… I will keep trying to find ways to solve this. This game contains far more and bigger graphics than my usual games and HTML5 doesn’t manage such high graphic content very well and is far more complex to find solutions for than for flash. Please note that I have no programming education, neither do I have funds to hire programmers to solve these issues for me. I’m doing my best to improve the game, you have to be a bit patient with me.
2019-08-19 – Two more broken flash games fixed!
The JRPG Heroine Creator: Dragon Master and Rinmaru Amazon Warrior Creator has been fixed!
2019-08-03 – One more broken flash game fixed!
https://www.missangestgames.com/jrpg-heroine-warrior-creator/ was found to be broken as well, I have now reuploaded it and it should work again! And again, I’d appreciate any help in pinpointing which games that has been broken. I have over 500 games on this website at the moment and right now I’m busy with commissions and getting the HTML5 versions ready, so going through every single one is not an option at the time. I try to check any comments about broken games within 24 hours though!
2019-08-02 – New Missangest Avatar Creator APP ready (HTML5 needs some time still)
The New Missangest Avatar Creator is available on android now! You can download it in the google play store here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=air.MissangestAvatarCreator
The HTML5 versions needs some time still, I had to rush the app so it would be published before the 1’st of August. I’m working on the HTML5 versions now but it may take up to a week for them to be ready, I’m working as fast as I can though!
