It's been about 5 months since I released the first demo for Oh Man Go Time: Gaiden, so I figured it was overdue for a new one. There's actually a lot of new content that wasn't in the old demo; in fact, the game goes right up to the very beginning of Drugs' evil lair.
I'd also like to announce that I'm taking bit of a break from working on this. Now don't worry, I'm still planning on completing this (someday), it's just that for the time being I'd like to focus on smaller Knytt projects. Making stuff for Sergio's one-room competition has made me realize that I work better with smaller, concentrated levels than bigger, sprawling levels like this one. This doesn't mean I won't try to make more epic-sized levels in the future, just that I'll work in a couple bite-sized levels in between them.
So, hey! Haven't been here for a while. How about a little Knytt Story to make up for lost time? I actually started making this for a level competition on the Nifflas forums (the basic theme was "keys," although it was a little more complicated than that), but I never finished it in time to enter. I decided early on to make it a maze-type game, even though I hadn't had any experience at all with building mazes. I think the inexperience shows, frankly, but at least I gave it some nice scenery.
Sorry for taking forever with this, but here are the entries! Tomorrow I will post the awards ceremony, and hand out the coveted .gif trophies for display on your homepage, between your "Cnet Funny Site of the Day" banners and links to Netscape Navigator!
Many thanks again to Colombia Pictures for not sponsoring this event to promote their upcoming disaster comedy "2012".
Roll out the red carpet, turn on the searchlights, and start the music! The Awards Ceremony is about to begin!

Few people still see this Windows 3.1 error message these days. For KotM participants, however, it is a badge of honor reserved for those who push a decade-old game-maker to its limit. But just how far can it be pushed? While Glorious Trainwrecks raison d'être may be the creation of games by any means necessary, there is an undercurrent of a fascination with old tools. Some members have made Atari VCS games. More have dabbled in ZZT. And most of us have telnet'd in to MarMOTS to sketch ANSI with our favorite sysadmin.
Action Point is a Klik & Play Demoscene party. While the Demoscene's primary interest is technical ability with a high-gloss sheen of visual design and musical talent, take note that this is still Glorious Trainwrecks. Action Point is more than simply a celebration of elaborate event writing. It is also about creating unusual and unique visual/auditory art as well. What I'm trying to say is that while 3D Raycasting engines in KnP are expected, a hail of synchronized yellow joggers is also a desirable outcome.
Attached is the Invitation Demo. I hope it inspires you to greatness!
