Loonyland 2 Has Been Collected!06:26 PM -- Sat October 30, 2010

As of yesterday, we just sold the very last existing copy of the Loonyland 2 Collector's Edition. If you missed your shot at it and you're all sad and whatnot, let me know! If there is enough demand, I'll print up another run!

I had planned to announce the last one was here and maybe do something exciting with it, but it kinda got yanked out from under my nose before I ever had the chance. I can't believe they're all gone. It'd be more poetic to not print up any more. They are a collector's edition, after all. Then again, I probably should've signed them all in that case!

On a super totally related note, don't forget that the Avatar Bit Contest is now in the final voting phase. If you already voted (or didn't), it's time to do it again to choose a final winner!

Tomorrow is the BEST HALLOWEEN EVER!

Another Project12:58 AM -- Wed October 27, 2010

Another project I'm doing will be done in December. I don't feel like I can say much of anything about it (it's being developed specifically for another site - I'll give you a link when it's done!), but it's another fine Flash side-scroller (without Robot!). I've actually only done art for it so far, but I will be getting into the code portion very soon. Here's some tiles in progress:


I copied colors and some style from a screenshot of a Gameboy version of Contra, and the end result is some of my best work! Not real sure what that light brown junk is. I liked the look of the green platforms sitting on the side of the cliff there, so I thought the cliffs could be background instead of solid walls. But that left me with the problem that if everything is a platform or background, then there's nothing stopping you from moving, ever. So the brown stuff is supposed to be ?rocks? that I can use as obstacles. I don't know if I'll keep them, they're a bit odd.

Vote For Costumes!05:42 PM -- Sun October 24, 2010

The pictures are huge, so I won't lay them all out here, and you can just click here to see them and vote for your favorite! We got nine entries, which I'm really glad about because we were sitting there with none for almost the entire month! I guess everybody was holding out on me, because as you can see with these, they took a lot of effort and time!

Robot seems to have been popular this year! A lot moreso than last year, before he existed. Man, the costume contest is always my favorite part! Hooray for costumes!

Vote For Avatar Bits!05:16 PM -- Sun October 24, 2010

This is the first of many journal entries today! The Bits Help Everybody contest has closed for entries, and it's time to place your votes for your favorites. The forum only allows 10 options in a poll, and we had 18 entries, so I had to get a little creative. Thusly:


On October 29th, the top 5 entries from each half will face off in a final round to determine the winners!

So Many Projects12:49 AM -- Sun October 24, 2010

I sure haven't been blogging... it's because I'm working on a big pile of projects, all of which are secret to one degree or another. But I'm going to share a little bit about each one! How about them bananas?


This game may not even appear here on Hamumu, but I'll point you to it when it's done. It's a fairly "adult" game, but while it's a bit edgy, it doesn't have anything far outside Hamumu rules. Maybe a bit iffy though. It will probably be the first one done of the ones I'm working on. My WoW buddy is handling almost all of the art duty on it, so that's why it's made of very classy photography instead of goofy monsters with big eyes. In case you can't guess, this is a point & click adventure, somewhat of an "escape the room" game. It's fun to make those, I find!

And please note that quite a few of the Halloween contests require you to submit your entry in SIX HOURS from right now!! Don't miss your chance at mondo yerfbucks (especially the Costume Contest where top prize is a thousand yerfbucks!).

15 Games I Can't Forget11:56 PM -- Tue October 5, 2010

I was challenged on Facebook (well, a general challenge was issued) by Andy Schatz of Pocketwatch Games with "The rules: Don't take too long to think about it. 15 games you've played that will always stick with you. List the first 15 you can recall in no more than fifteen minutes."

Well, in the span of about 5 minutes, I was flooded with more thoughts and nostalgia than my fingers could keep up with. Eventually I just had to stop myself (and argh, I know I'm forgetting 10 things where I would go "Oh, that changed my life!!" if I sit and try to think more) to avoid wasting the whole day. Then I picked a top 15 most memorable - not the best games, or the most popular, but the ones that are really stuck in my head and a part of me. These are the games, in no particular order at all:
  • WoW
  • Diablo 2
  • Tetris
  • Tony Hawk 1-4
  • Ratchet & Clank 1-4
  • Wasteland
  • Herzog Zwei
  • Doom
  • Castlevania: Symphony Of The Night
  • Ultima I-IV, especially III
  • Speedball II
  • Super Mario Bros.
  • Mortal Kombat (1 and 2)
  • Rock Band
  • Unreal Tournament
And if you're curious, which you aren't but I need to get it out of my head, here's the rest of the list of ones that just popped into my head in those first couple minutes (actually there were dozens more, but I couldn't type that fast and I rejected ones that I knew weren't really that memorable to me):

Wolfenstein, Wolfenstein 3D, Star Saga One, Dragon Wars, Dragon Warrior, Armada, Simcity, Civilization, Ninja Gaiden, Strider NES (not the arcade or Genesis versions, totally different), Portal, Zork III (owned the hint book!), Breakout, Space Invaders, Qix, Attaxx, Warcraft 2, Dune II, Ghostbusters (Apple II), Legend of Kage, Kid Niki, Thunder Force III, Burgertime, Pac-Man, Street Fighter 2 (many versions), X-Men vs. Street Fighter, Marvel vs. Capcom, Double Dragon, Asteroids, Wizard's Crown, Might & Magic, The Black Cauldron, Dragon's Lair, Desert Strike, Zangband, ADOM, Torchlight, 1942, Raiden II, 19XX (actual title, not generalizing), Ice Climber, Pro Wrestling (NES), Rush N Attack, Altered Beast, Guardian Heroes, Last Battle, Wings of Fury, Captain Goodnight, X-Com, Interstate 76, Metroid, Sly Cooper 1-3, X-Wing vs. Tie Fighter, Wing Commander, Sonic The Hedgehog, Ghouls n' Ghosts (or was it Ghosts n' Goblins? One of those quite thoroughly in my head, just not the title. Also Super Ghouls n' Ghosts), Forgotten Worlds.

What about you?
