Check out all this shit I made, and these prototypes oh my god!

Posted by I-smel - February 20th, 2012


EXCITING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
First things first, giant big thanks to JeffAwesome who drew nearly every game character I've made since the beginning. EVEN THE GUY FROM THE GODDAMN TITLE SCREEN OF MIGHTY TOWER. EVEN BAZOOKER!!!!!
I promised I wouldn't make a new post until these games are out, but they'll be up THIS WEEK! I just signed a deal on RoadTrip Rampage and Digital Sky, and the word is "you can put em up on Newgrounds and Kong whenever". (ppssssst i dont care when they go up on kong)

Check out the comments in my last news post, cos I spoke to Kajenx for a sec about transitioning to bigger games. It's difficult in unexpected ways, so it should put into perspective just how well Glaiel and StarOgre are doing, now that they're winning everything and becoming trillionaires loved by everyone.

A few weeks ago I made a couple really dumb really small games: Paperboy 2012 and SOPAnoid. They each took like an hour to make and were pretty spontaenious. I felt bad about the SOPA one, cos I actually don't follow politics and am not that kinda guy at all- it was just a small joke, but everyone thought I was being really passionate about it. So I came up with a new game that was more reflective of what I think is funny and what I think about, and it came out as this really mean-spirited comedy thing called How To #SaveTheWorld. As news stories came up, you had to change all your avatars and statuses to make sure everyone knew you were against them; and then quickly change them back once it all died down. The game was to be as synchornized with current events as you could, and that's how you fix all the world's problems.
So that got boring and I figured everyone would just hate it.

I'M STILL WORKING AT GIGANTIC MEGACORP GIGATECH INCORPORATED! My first job was to make a new mascot to refresh one of their sites. I wish I could show the concept work I did cos it looks really artsy and cool, but I bet I'm not allowed.
I guess this lil guy is my responsibillity now, which is really fun. I do all the art and animation concerning him/her:
Demonstration
Roadtrip Rampage
Digital Sky
Someone else's game that I'm somewhat helping out on <- my favourite so far
YEAH I BET YOU FORGOT I COULD ANIMATE, DIDNTYA!!?!?!?!? EVERYONE ALWAYS FORGETS ABOUT OOOOOOOLD SMELLY, then wh-BAMM!!!!!! DON'T COME CRYIN TO ME WHEN YOU'RE UP SHIT CREEK WITHOUT A COMPUTER-ASSISTED TWEEN, YOU CODDLED INGRATE FUCKS.

I'm also prototyping a couple new games. This is one I'm really excited about, I want it to be my next big swing at a for-sale game. I'm making a small version in Flash, and maybe I'll flesh it out into a web game first: It's a scrolling shooter that drops all that bullet-hell crap that I hate, and replaces it with more of a beat-em-up design. So it feels more tactile and has more interesting enemy behaviors- It's similar to Legend of Johnny.
Here's the .exe, cos it uses the right-click.
You can grab n throw guys by holding the right-mouse, and there's a tonne of weapons to try out. WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK!!!??!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!??????

Oh and also I wanna make a lil RPG where literally every mechanic is replaced with a fuckin Wii Sports golf meter. It'll be the most accessible videogame ever. So that could be funny.

OH AND I DREW CANNONCROTCH. Remember Cannoncrotch? No? Well...
Anyone else watchin The Tester? Yeah, pretty dumb show, right.
Thanks to Jeff Nitzberg for my posters.
IGN are giving out copies of No Time To Explain in IGN Prime this week, so sign up to that if you want the game for $3 (don't know if I'm allowed to say that).
Also, CONGRATS to Pokemon Tower Defense for reaching NINE POINT FIVE MILLION HITS before finally dropping from the front page after about 10 months!

That's it.
Oh and nice redesign, Newgrounds.

I watched this cartoon series on Youtube called &quot;My Little Pony: Friendship is Witchcraft&quot;, and it's basically episodes of that cartoon, but with everything edited and with a new script to remix it into a new show, and I found it REALLY HILARIOUS!
OK THERE I SAID IT.

I still think Dead Space Invaders is the greatest thing you've ever made.

Yea, small games are pretty cool, I like makin em.

EDIT-- wait I guess that means you hate my other games

Pretty cool.

Versiown lets you edit the exe projector file's icon/description and such, and it's free.

Yea I just compiled this in 10 seconds to show you guys, I'm not interested in making it look good.

The Tester is indeed pretty lame. only watching it until egoraptor gets kicked off. i'm hoping the poor guy doesn't leave his ego there cus everyone seems to hate him

When I watched the first episode I was like "Woah- I get that he's making a joke of it, but this is just strange!"
Then I watched his Q&A panel on youtube, and I was like "Oh, duh, of course he's a great guy. Sequelitis is awesome"

Then I looked up the other contestants, and none of them are actually as annoying or weird as the show makes em out to be. It's kind of a shame for everyone.

Update:
But it doesn't do all that Linux/SDK stuff and junk.
(I'm stupid...)

GOD DAMN IT YOU FUCKING IDIOT, WHEN WILL YOU LEARN TO THINK TWICE!!!??? UUUUUURRRRGHGHRGHRGHGHGHGHHHHHH!! YOU ARE SUCH A PRICK I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS!!!!

Dinally a site with good looking logo animations, which is super rare these days.

Yea I have turned down sites cos they had shitty intros before. I think it was like "CrazyMonkeyGames dot com" that had this HORRIBLE loud shrieking sound at the start of every game.

like- "ninja kiwi dot com" are you fucking kidding me with this? Thank god Newgrounds is owned by people who are actually cool people.

Finally...

Typing with one hand and the other equipped with a delishus toast surely is hard!

I think i like roadtrip rampage the best. Though now id really like a lollipop. Good stuff in general. I'm not crazy about the font but the animations are quite funnn. also dont be a brony.

Yeah I didn't make the text, I also think it's a crummy logo. I just made the dude.

I think My Little Pony is an OK cartoon- it's KIND OF impressive how they rebooted such a boring outdated franchise to be so relevant- but I've watched like one episode. It's not amazing.

but I'm in the ABSOLUTE MINORITY in that I don't care about the show, but I think the fan-reaction to My Little Pony is fantastic. Max Gilardi's (HotDiggedyDemon.newgrounds.com) cartoons are GREAT, this youtube series is REAL FUNNY, and it's just bin like a catalyst to get people on the internet to make nutty awesome cartoon shit, which I'm all-the-way into.
I think the internet deciding that Rainbowdash is totally a lesbian, and Berry Punch is totally a drunk is funny.

I still think 4chan and reddit are unfunny cunts and can go suck a fat hairy dick, don't get me wrong.

I really like the laser blast animations you do... Even without sound effects I can tell it's one helluva blast.

Yeah whatever ok bye you don't care.

!!!! ok bye

NNOOO DONT GO!!!!!!

Did you get that email I sent you? Just wondering - big fan

haha, forgot to read it!

what ever happened to that fighting game, i really liked that one

Well the biker game and the stealth game were both finished, so A10.com said "Hey I'll take those". So my motivation to finish em was that somebody finally wanted to put em up.

A while ago they said "I think fighting games are gonna be the next big thing, so I'll keep you posted on that" but I don't think they're interested really.

Right now I'm havin fun doin this shoot-em-up beat-em-up (that prototype^^^) so I'm spendin my spare time on that. The fighting game is fun to make, but so is this. So I guess it'll stay unfinished like all my other unfinished games.

I'm gonna buy Mortal Kombat soon, so maybe I'll feel like makin a fighting game again? I dunno.
I wish I was like HotDiggedyDemon, that guy makes like 3 cartoons at once every fuckin month. What a maniac.

Im glad we have game developers like you. Even though it sounds like you've got sponsors breathing down your neck, you're incredibly active and not just one of those faceless people who you see only posting games. I respect you, man.

awesome! Newgrounds totally encourages that more than any other place you can put games.
