  Hamumu Halloween Home Horror Hoedown #2018-05: The Thing (1982) 03:07 PM -- Fri October 5, 2018  


John Carpenter's "The Thing" (1982) is a unique movie in that it's about a thing. Listen in to find out if it's better than "The Stuff" (which I reviewed a few years ago!).

  Hamumu Halloween Home Horror Hoedown #2018-03: The Levenger Tapes (2013) 03:46 PM -- Wed October 3, 2018  


Today, we watch "The Levenger Tapes" (2013). It combines teens and found footage, like chocolate and peanut butter.

In other news: we are now up on iTunes (handy link below!), and there is a new Halloween page on this site, housing all the Halloween reviews we've done since 2011! They're also in this blog, but they're a lot easier to find on that page (also they're in chronological order instead of the traditional reverse format of blogs). Along with a nifty sortable chart showing every movie we've ever rated!

  Hamumu Halloween Is Coming! 01:26 AM -- Thu September 27, 2018  


Like every year, I am going to spend the month of October watching and reviewing 31 horror movies. And like most years, I'm changing up the format of my reviews again this year! So, we've done basic text reviews, reviews with a drawing inspired by the film, reviews with a new movie idea inspired by the film, video reviews, text discussions with my wife (and once or twice, special guests), and now... it's a podcast! My wife and I, in your ears, ranting and raving about all the stupid little things we have a problem with, in 31 different horror movies all month long (or whenever you feel like listening to it).

As usual, we will be GOING NUTS WITH THE SPOILERS so we strongly encourage you to watch the movies before listening to our glorious takedown. In order to facilitate that, I'm actually going to give you a decent head's up for once. Here is a handy list of the first 10 movies we'll be covering, and what streaming service we used to watch them. I'll make sure to update you on the next 10 when I can!
  • Episode 1: Unsane (2018) on Amazon Prime

  • Episode 2: Devil's Tree: Rooted Evil (2018) on Amazon Prime

  • Episode 3: The Levenger Tapes (2013) on Hulu

  • Episode 4: June (2015) on Amazon Prime

  • Episode 5: The Thing (1982) on Starz

  • Episode 6: 11 Minutes (2016) on Hulu

  • Episode 7: Charlie Charlie (2016) on Hulu

  • Episode 8: The Stepfather (1987) on Amazon Prime

  • Episode 9: Blood Hunters (2016) on Hulu

  • Episode 10: The Boy (2016) on Netflix

Don't miss out! This is my favorite part of the year! On the first of October, we'll be sure to provide handy links to subscribe to the podcast in iTunes and Google Whatever. So tune back in to this page for spooky goodness.

  Where have I been all my life!? 07:11 PM -- Tue September 11, 2018  

Hey gang, a month and a week later, I am back with more bloggy words! I have no particular excuses for my absence. I've just been plugging along on the same-old same-old, and didn't feel like working on my blog! That's something I want to try to improve upon, but then, so are a lot of things - my health, my work, my board games, my ukulele playing, and so on. Doesn't mean it'll happen. But I intend to try!

Robot Wants It All is coming along really well. At this point, I'd say what remains is most of Robot Wants Justice, which is still in pretty early stages, most of Robot Wants Ice Cream which has just barely been ported (you can currently roam around in the level, but can't use any of your abilities, so it's quite limited), and a couple of other minor elements - some achievements, some bonus features, some of the extra maps (only a couple of those though!). It feels like we're really getting there now.

Oh, and of course I have been streaming the development of that game (will do again later today) at Twitch.tv/hamumugames, usually twice a week, so come on by and watch me work. Watching someone program (or do pixel art, or level design) is not interesting to everybody, but you never know until you try! I like to chat with the viewers and get ideas from them as well. Plus you get to see the game as it develops. If you subscribe to my Twitch channel, it will notify you when I start streaming (which I try to do on Tuesdays and Thursdays).

I have lots of other things to tell you about, since I haven't blogged in forever, but let's just save those for another day, so I have reason to come back. See you soon, internet!

  Robot Wants A Trailer! 10:28 PM -- Sun August 5, 2018  


Yay, we got a trailer made for our new game! Watch it and enjoy it! It's super awesome! I wanted just a straightforward gameplay trailer, but the creator (Katana Video Production) recommended this ridiculous live-action stuff, and convinced me. I think to the benefit of the entire world.

  Robot Wants JUSTICE! 03:45 PM -- Thu July 26, 2018  


It is revealed! The 6th Robot game is entitled Robot Wants Justice, and it's all about Robot deciding he's done enough for himself (which has rarely worked out well anyway), and wants to do something for others. Exactly what that is and how it works, you'll find out as it goes along. You can find out quicker by watching me develop it on my Twitch Stream on Tuesdays and Thursdays (today!). I missed the one on Tuesday, but I am back today!

In other news we have been beta testing the parts that are done, and moving along rapidly. Our bug list has gotten massive, and then gotten chopped down again, back and forth. We've fixed over 100 bugs at this point, and things feel so much more solid than they did. The funny thing is, the game felt done and polished to me before I brought on the testers, and then they just tore it to shreds. Including some really basic stuff. The things that when I play other games I go "Come on, how could they have even played this level and not come across that bug?!" I guess it happens!

  Robot Wants Achievements 09:36 PM -- Mon July 9, 2018  

But he's not getting any yet! This is the Awards and Achievements screen in Robot Wants It All. The right side of it shows Awards, which I discussed a couple posts ago - you can earn those over and over. On the left side, we have Achievements, or rather we don't. Those are the blank spaces where achievements WILL go once there are achievements. It just randomly flips some of them to gold right now. But it is progress! Lots of juicy progress even!

And then there's the Stats screen! This is just a big pile of detailed info about how you are doing in the game. It really serves no purpose at all, I just like to get lots of stats on the games I play, so I figured I'd give them to you too. Currently this is the only place you can ever find out what the names of the different aliens are. I'm not sure if we're going to do anything else there... I always think it's fun to have a Bestiary type of feature, but it's so pointless and silly (especially in a game where the monsters are just things I made up out of the blue, with no backstory or logic to them). Maybe.

Anyway, beta testing should be getting underway in the next couple of days! Prepare for excitement!
