as the first milestone of my gruelling foray into programming with no end in sight for the frustration and milestones, i've recreated one of my most legendary masterpieces, smoorf game 1. please check it out and tell me if there's anything really wonky with it, or it works at all.
If all goes well, I'll be finished on monday. Things may go weller or not-weller. Thursday at most. (This month like I said. Woor for meeting deadlines!)
Have an assortment of amazing screens to build some final hype.
see you in 2015 then.
The final deadline-that-if-I-don't-meet-I'm-gonna-jump-off-a-goddamn-cliff is the end of this month.
Here have some screenies.
Here's a riddle for you:
What's so bad it's pure fukken comedy gold, moves around 6 to 12 frames per second, and stars a stick man with animu hair, a lizardman, and a ninja who never takes off his suit as the main characters?
I hereby present to you-
NO FRIENDS!!! (how it got its name's an incredibly dumb story that has nothing to do with my social life)
No Friends is a series of
animations bunches of pictures with some parts that move occasionally
(usually the mouth(it finally gets "better" in episode 24)) that was my first time expressing myself. It
was embarrassingly bad right from the beginning, but if I hadn't continued it at the time, I most likely
wouldn't have eventually tried my hand at doing a game based on it (something I dabbled in with GM back then.) It was gonna be an RPG, and obviously it failed the first time. But then it happened. I wanted to do that game. Three more failures and making games changing from a "cool thing to do" to a life goal later, here I am. I still want to create that game, but it's now far from my biggest to-be project. The game will be nothing like it was supposed to back then though, the universe's been evolving with a very closed community for years now, (where I originally shared these animations, it's amazing how 'familiar' you can get with intranets' strangers if you stick with them) and... I dunno, it doesn't really have much connection to the old shit for anyone else than me anymore, but it's not like people who'll someday play it would or even should care about it.
When the changes happened it was the first time I knew (that wasn't me being a dumb kid) that I was creating something wonderful. Unique, maybe a bit quirky at times, characters and settings that people could experience if I someday reached a state where they can be presentable.
The contrast of the substance in the previous two paragraphs to the absolute trainwreck that actually is this shitty animation series is just ridiculous. Let's get to it, shall we?
Hold tight onto your seat for well over an hour (if you somehow manage to go through them all) of genuine, hilariously bad shit.
ENTER NO FRIENDS
(they're in reverse order, so start from the end)
WARNING: DO NOT ENTER
Actual watch-outs: Watch out for a couple episodes where stuff gets a bit too self-aware and I basically cop-out the whole episode. Watch out for the old version of the fourteenth episode. (actually watch it. it's literally just a bunch of pictures. then watch the remix afterwards for contrast.)
Watch out for dumb in-jokes that you either didn't catch or weren't actually seen anywhere because I made stuff up as I went. Watch out for the "music" present in a whole lot of episodes (read: do not watch episode 4). Ep. 30 is the final episode and the only one to have actual music. (which still manages to be fucked up though) Actually, you could just watch that one and be done with this.
Enough blabbering. Get ready for a brain-meltingly bad time.

If you want some YAKF3 progress: Three quarters down, one to go.
Just a progress report. I think I'll finally pick the pace up on this instead doing maybe two or three things in a week. Stay tuned for the next blog post though.
According to my to-do list (which, like all track-keeping, doesn't in any way give out actually reliable
information about how long finishing stuff will take) I'm about a third of the way (the least painful
third) done now. But let's not talk about that.
Let's talk about Smoorfs.
What is a Smoorf? [sic]
A miserable little pile of joke games, that's what.
(full title: Murfit Pirasee Vehlo Kanka Noka Pröt Shub Lapissi Taavi-eno Kirain Maasa)
It's a four part series of 94.7% joke games that got out of hand just like Kung Fu. (only the end product of that will have some no-joke-kickass merit)
I really don't have anything to say, so I'll let the games speak for themselves.
Note: I'm pretty sure you can beat the first two ones no problem, but the third and fourth one have some (ok in the fourth it's like half of them) plain impossible/unplayable/shitty levels. Press DELETE to skip a level.
Next blog will be some deeper kungfu stuff probs, and the following will be more of my old shit.
anyone mind giving me some corrupted klik salvaging 101?
its only one and-a-half battles that weren't really too good but still.
gonna backup more now, but if this keeps coming up i dunno what my productivity will say
I just can't bring myself to do that.
Now that that's out of the way, I can say that I'm about done with the first, easiest quarter of the project, called "Pretending to have something done."
The next ones will be "Continuing pretending to do something", "Not getting anything done (??????????)", and "Checking if all that pretending did something."
This game is gonna be more like a practice to myself than anything else. The end product might be nothing too impressive; I hope that I will finally start to figure out the cause and the effects of the pretending when I finally have the finished product in my hands.
The reason I can't do anything much when I'm not let to be alone, and trying to force that out of my system for now because it doesn't make any sense for stuff like this.
But again, there may be some stuff there that I genuinely made an effort for and is fun. (AKA went balls-berserk because I remembered this is 75% joke game)
aurrgh now im locking up again.
i hope you get some sense out of that.
next time ill post my old series of purely joke games (which almost got too serious like this)
edit: re: this is some kinda deeper shit to me on a personal level, but don't worry about it; i'm like that all the time.
Please standby a bit longer while I collect myself together, I'm all over the place (I'm too fukken introvert.)
The final semi-serious work awaits.
A farewell to the old, influenced by both old and new.
Man I wanna move on to new already.
But first lets do this!
