  Robot Wants Updates 05:23 PM -- Thu November 15, 2018  

Long time no see! We are in the ... the home stretch??? ... of Robot Wants It All. If it is the home stretch, you should warm up first because it is looking to be a long stretch. At this point, Robot Wants Ice Cream is nearly 100% (the original that is - we still need to make Easy and Remix maps for it), and Robot Wants Justice is maybe 40% or so. Those were the last two games, so we can see the end in sight. There's a lot of fiddly bits, achievements, and bonuses to go.

I made this great schedule which had us finishing on November 20th. That schedule is currently completely covered in red ink. But there was a big stall on both of those games for a while, and now those are both making great progress, so maybe the schedule isn't so much too quick for us to meet, it just needed a big gap before it started. Maybe? If so, we're about a month from launch. But in all honesty that's unlikely. I would love a 2018 release for this game, but like every game ever made, it just glides right along deadlines like a greased Ash Penguin. Speaking of which, here they are:


Now the thing with that picture that really frustrates me is that I ran into some crazy color-space issues creating it! I have NEVER encountered this before, but the picture you see above is much brighter and more washed-out than the actual game, and I tried a whole bunch of different settings and a lot of googling to fix it, and... well, I could take a new shot and darken it artificially to get the right thing, but then I don't know if that'll come up dark on some peoples' screens. It's all about the browser using color space info. I don't know what on earth it's doing. Or why it decided to do it just today. I've been posting screenshots for quite a few years! I know color space is a thing, but ah... I digress. You can download the image and view it outside the browser if you really want to see correct colors (or maybe it is correct on your screen, maybe it's just my browser).

The point is: the game looks darker and more colorful than that. But hey, those are Ash Penguins which live in a volcano! Also, it's Robot exploding from their attack. You'll see that a lot when playing.

Back to work on that. I'll try to keep more updates coming at a reasonable pace because exciting stuff is indeed happening. The first boss in Robot Wants Justice is done, as well as what you might call the second boss, but, well, you'll see when you play it.

  Hamumu Halloween Home Horror Hoedown #2018-33: Halloween Roundup 06:13 PM -- Fri November 2, 2018  


It's a Halloween tradition! I laid on the couch and watched movies for the ENTIRE DAY. Hear my spoilerrific reviews for 9 horror films: The Hunted (2014), The Horror Network (2015), Malevolent (2018), Truth or Dare (2017), Tragedy Girls (2017), Darkness (2004), Island bZero (2018), Seven In Heaven (2018), and The Devil's Candy (2017). We even roped in Solee for a couple of them.

That's it folks! The end of the entire Halloween month of movies. I'm always so sad to see it go, and yet so happy to not have to spend 5 hours of my day (or all of it, in Halloween's case... plus a couple hours the next day!) working on this project. Whatever will I do with my time now? Make a game!?

  Hamumu Halloween Home Horror Hoedown #2018-32: The 2018 Wrap Up 03:14 PM -- Thu November 1, 2018  


2018 is over! Or at least the part of it worth mentioning is. Did you know we got ZERO trick-or-treaters last night? I have to eat all my own candy. But here's our penultimate podcast for the year - a wrap up and analysis of the overall picture of horror movies in 2018. At least, the ones we watched anyway.

Tomorrow I will bring you one final adventure: reviews of the 9 movies we watched all day on Halloween! My favorite, and most back-breaking, tradition.

  Hamumu Halloween Home Horror Hoedown #2018-31: The Bad Ben Series (2017-2018) 12:52 PM -- Wed October 31, 2018  


For our grand finale this month, we scooped up the entire rest of the Bad Ben films: Steelmanville Road, Badder Ben, Bad Ben: The Mandela Effect, and the latest release, The Crescent Moon Clown. It's not just a podcast, it's a Quadcast! How do they compare to the original which garnered an astounding 5 Spooky Haunted Baby Toys from our resident critic? Let's find out.

Also of note: There are 2 more podcasts to come in this series before we fully finish the month. First, we're doing our yearly wrap-up, where we figure out what we've learned from these 35 horrific visages. Then the true grand finale is that today, as is Halloween tradition (since last year), I'll be watching as many horror movies as I can in a single day (I got 9 done last year, hope to beat it!), and I'll do one quick review covering them all.

Happy Halloween everybody! May it be the Best Halloween Ever!

We never saw the original, but we sure did watch "Halloween" (2018) to share with you! Watch the final(?) confrontation between Michael Myers and the one that got away, with us! This podcast has an amazing ending you will not believe, seriously.

  Hamumu Halloween Home Horror Hoedown #2018-28: Hideaway (1995) 12:46 PM -- Sun October 28, 2018  


In "Hideaway" (1995), Jeff Goldblum wears a turtleneck and stammers. Did you expect him to do anything else?

  Hamumu Halloween Home Horror Hoedown #2018-27: Tag (2015) 02:27 PM -- Sat October 27, 2018  


Just to be clear, "Tag" (2015) is NOT the hilarious comedy about a group of men who've played a single game of Tag for years on end (That's "Tag" (2018)!). Nope, this Japanese film is... not that. Definitely. Hope you're a fan of both gore and confusion.

We watched the original 1982 version, so now we follow up with "The Thing" (2011)! How does it compare? Find out by jamming some earbuds in your ears and cranking us up!

Our first zombie film for the month is "Life After Beth" (2014). Can our hero get over his girlfriend's death? Is that easier or harder if she comes back? You probably know the answer.
