Paranoia's News

Posted by Paranoia - December 31st, 2007

Well, I've not submitted anything for a good long while (while inexplicably being still able to make Front Page posts) so some kind of status update is probably in order. I've been falling behind a little as far as making stuff goes, but I do have a project under way and have been working on it for several months now.

It's a ridiculously over-ambitious platform-adventure game which is going to have tonnes of levels, even more secrets, and more bosses than you can shake a decompiler at. It is also a sequel to my disappointingly rushed and inefficient Halloween Game of 2006 - since vampires and Gothic themes are always cool, I figured I'd make a much better job of it this time around. Eventually. It's completely new, fast, AS3, and pretty satisfying to be working on.

So, I'm just shy of half way through making that (or a third if you count all the extra stuff I want to cram in), and probably will be working a lot harder on it from now on, so expect that within the next few months. Some time before summer, at any rate.

For the time being, though, I've still got a decent selection of games and movies - some good; others not so good. If you've got a couple of hours to kill, I suggest playing my last over-ambitious platformer, which also took a bit of time to make, and really picks up in terms of awesomeness in the last level and a half.

I'm aware that I'm stroking my own ego quite violently here, but sod it; this is my news post. Since I've got no real previews, I leave you with this collection of screenshots from what is looking to be a most excellent game.


On why I've done bugger all lately and what else to expect

Appreciate it, Luis :)

In other news, I'm working on a mega AS3 game, so prepare your faces to be rocked off and then surgically reattached by the power of awesomeness sometime in quite a few months. Hopefully by Halloween, but that's probably not too realistic a deadline considering how much work I want to get done for it.

Thanks for the drawing!

I folded and got an account yesterday just so people would stop bugging me about it... Feel free to add me if you're a reasonably accomplished artist or anything, or just someone I might conceivably recognise from around the site...

And yes; it is a fucking popularity contest >:|

Just like to wish Tom an awesome future for NG, and hope that things die down a little so things can get moving at maximum smoothness. Ciao.
