Sea of fire. Mountain of needles.

An awkward last few days. Brother in prison. Father depressed.

I've been working on a cartoon for Weebl and Skoo. Based on skoo's ideas. But I get to do it in my style.
It was short and horrifically violent. But they've given me permission to make it as long and insidiously gory as I want.
I'm going to have fun with this.

Someone asked me last post what songs I have on my music player in the comments.
SO

Since I have nothing of interest to discuss in any way, here's a list of all the stuff I currently have playing.

In other news, the game ARTHROPOD will soon be released.

Arthropod as none of you will recall was a shooter game that me and my friend Billy Monks have been working on.


some old concept art




and eventually what turned out to be the final design:


This game has been through alot ALOT of changes and alot of drama.
Originally it was going to be a huge sprawling adventure of multiple levels. But time constraints and playability issues made it wise to simply release the game in several chapters.
Chapter one is done. The game is done. The last few days I've spent making background art assets and waiting for my friend Lenko Biscuit to finish recording the dialogue for the game.
Once the dialogue is done, that's it.

Billy will take some bids on sponsors for the game, and then it will be released. Where I will then whore it to as many people as I can.

I can say for certain having played it myself, that anyone who enjoys good old fashioned arcade-style shooters (1942, R-Type, Ikaruga) will enjoy this game. We got a catchy techno soundtrack, some lovely upgradeable weapons, and a nice hard boss. Actually the whole game is pretty damn hard, as a shooter should be. Not Touhou hard or anything.

But hard enough where you WILL die. But its also a game where you learn how to get better and eventually kick some ass. Which is good. I hope it reaches past that hurdle of internet gaming that goes by the name of "Pretty Good for Flash"

When its done it will be called Arthropod Armada and you'll be able to post the results on a high-score table on Facebook apparently.
