HI GUYS. I'M drunk as all fuck right now, so if this is illegible, then I'm dreadfully sorry.
First things first: I beat Meat Boy Light World. All the video reviews for Super Meat Boy are complete shit. The IGN one justdescribes the game without tellin you whether it's any good or not, and the Gamespot one is some faggot's poem about video games. So I'll write a quick one for ya now:
Super Meat Boy is great. If you like wall-jumpin, and slidin under traps, and bein a swift-ass ninja, then you should definately get it.
It's super beefed up from the flash version.
I'ts like- y'know how Mario Galaxy took every possible idea for 3D platformers, and made one big crazy mix tape of everything? That's what Meat Boy does, but with 2D platformers. If you think it's just jumping over saws the whole game: It's not. They introduce crazy lasers, evil dudes, keys n locks, I raced a guy, it's a variety act. Also there's a shitload of secret abilities and fuckin- glitch worlds, dark worlds, secret levels, new dudes to unlock, it is SENSATION STATION.
Ok now about my games: The biker game still isn't out. I dunno- I haven't spoke to those guys fr a while, I dunno what the deal is with that.
No Time To Explain- The game with the crab guy who screams alot: I JUST signed an agreement with ArcadeBomb, the same guys who got Robot Dinosaurs and April n Booster. That might be out on ArcadeBomb.com in a week or so.
BREAKTHROUGH: Fuckin- don't hold it to me. I made it in a couple days, I pitched the idea a franchise, they didn't want it, fair enough, I released it anyway. Stricken from the record: It's not a huge deal.
Someone wants to sponsor it, so hey, y'know, not too bad.
My next game is a top-down stealth game. Kinda like The Classroom (if you remember those games), kinda like MGS2. I shout-out MGS2 specificially because it's my favourite stealth game of all. Fuck the gadgets, fuck the gimmicks, it's all about HIDING, BAMBOOZLING GUARDS, BEING A SNEAKY-ASS MOTHERFUCKER. I don't like Splinter Cell.
Here's a prototype. Use the arrow keys (and the mouse in some spots)
It's JUST A TEST! Not the finished thing. This is just to give you an idea of what I'm doin right now.
Is it good or shit? You tell me.
I spent a good long time on the enemy AI, gettin him to walk around walls and find his way around. That's actually a big challenge, enemy AI is something I'm really interested in. In Crucnchdown I had a companion AI fight with you at one point, and in Johnny I had an enemy that had all the same abilities as you near the end. It's a really difficult thing to tackle, and I think Flash game dudes should shoot for making really interesting AI more often.
NEWGROUNDS NEWS - Someone really fun just asked me to collab on a game, but I had Flash 8 n he had Flash CS5, so I guess we're not compatible :(
+ This is kind of random, but Yotam's game just came out: Cat Game. I know he was waitin fr it to come out fr a while and I'm kinda bummed out that it's come out with like a 3.7.
I mention this cos I love his podcast with Max, it's still super funny. Does anyone know where exactly they do an impression of The Parent Trap girls? I want to animate it.
OH-- SPEAKING OF ANIMATION!!! I got really inspired by Terkoiz' Tentacle Monsters Tribute, and decided to make my own Tentacle Monsters Tribute Tribute. I only spent a day or so on it and got kinda boread though :( I need to catch up on game work cos it's kinda my job now, but I also wanna finish this. Is it worth finishing?? I do really love SWiTCH, I think he's the coolest dude...
I THINK THAT'S IT!?
As allways, here's my Formspring.. I hope it's not just one guy askin all the questions...
ALSO- it pains me to say this, but girls with boyfriends: what the fuck. Leave me alone. Don't play games with my heart- it's fucking annoying. OK? Ok. I'm glad we could clear that up.
