I’m more than above average!

I feel like I have loads more to share with you guys with regards to Above Average Guy! So I’ve been away to Berlin for the last weekend to recharge a bit, and it was freaking awesome! Now I’m back and since I’ve been back; Above Average Guy has just been completely pumped with work so much, so we’re actually like so so close.

I’ve got to make sure all the levels play fluidly and like, that’s it! Hopefully we don’t have a mega time dealing with sponsors like there was with Platcore.

The loader for the game. Super manga style, y’know how the Japanese would want it? It’s just looking so nice because of NCH!

NCH done an amazing job with this intro scene, I’m actually in love with it. I may share it with you guys before the game gets released; that’s how much I like it! And Waterflame blessed it with some magical beats.

So you’re sitting there – watching some TV. Then suddenly! ‘HEY YOU! SITTING ON THE COUCH GUY’. I think that’s you?

Do you think I should record a trailer? I may do, but not too sure! Anyway, can’t wait to let you guys play it! Hopefully it’ll be soon! :)

A bit of everything

Lots and lots have things have been happening over the last month! I thought it’d just be better to do a super big post and run through lots of stuff!

Eleventh Hour

So Eleventh Hour actually hit front page on Kongregate and on Newgrounds which is great! It’s always good to see the game up their – thanks to Tom and Greg! :)

It’s actually got a much better reaction from the Kong and NG crowd than it did from the Armorgames players. Which I find pretty interesting – A lot of the Kong feedback was pushing me to make something of this idea and pursue it more (Which me and Jay have ideas for, it’s just finding the time we’re both able too). I’m hoping in a month or two we’ll be able to sit down and nail something and not just a quick game! :)

I’m totally thinking a zelda meets fallout style. I mean, this prequel will set us up perfectly ūüėČ Lots of RPG elements; Crafting, EXP, Skill tree, nice inventory and quests. Time will tell for it!

Platcore

Wow – bet you haven’t heard this name for a while, right?! Bloody hell.

So yeah! After months and months of talking to a few sponsors and getting things sorted out – it’s all finally a done deal and ready to release (I’ve just got to add a little tutorial then boosh!) I’ll let you guys know when it launches though, as I do! I’m hoping it’s this week – if not, definitely next week!

Am I seeing things?! Platcore is ready for release?

 

Above Average Guy

It’s a shame this got put on hold for Eleventh Hour and then after that Platcore got sorted out! So this game has been on the backburner for a little while now sadly. BUT, I plan to pickup everything in a week or so and it’s pretty much done to be honest. All I’m doing is designing a few more levels to keep a decent amount of content in it, then we’ll be good for that!

I’ve got everything crossed that the process for sponsorship won’t take as long as Platcore! (Nothing in the world can to be honest!) :)

We’re waiting for the show to begin! HURRY CHRIS!

Mochi London 2012

Now this has turned in to a biggie! We’re looking at 101 registrations already – for our ‘Saturday only’ ticket, we’re completely sold out! I mean, it’s looking like it’ll be huge and so much fun! Can’t wait for it!

I also might be talking to – who knows! Me, I guess. But yeah, I’m thinking about it. I’ve got a decent topic that is interesting and I’m going to go for it (When it’s all nailed down, It’ll be released and also update the registration page on it)

Tom Krcha (Adobe) also confirmed to speak last week which is awesome! We’ve also got one more speaker due to confirm too, I’ll let people know on twitter and all that good social stuff.

So there are actually 9 tickets left as I write this РI urge you to run over there and get it all fully booked! http://mochilondon2012-estw.eventbrite.com/

If you made it to the bottom, you rock!

So what am I doing now!?

Hey guys! I thought It’d be the ideal opportunity for me to shoot some pictures around for the new game I’m working on!

I actually haven’t named it yet – although I’ve got some funky ideas, nothings set in stone yet! So for the time being, we’ll call it as Dave for no reason at all.

Okay so a little run down on the game, it’s all set on a theatre stage, with a nice cheery crowd and those cool red curtains (They’re always red!). It’s actually in the setting of a Japanese on-stage gameshow too, so it’s quirky. To add to it’s¬†quirkiness, Waterflame is conjuring some lovely, fitting music for us too! It’s a platformer/puzzler with some stages being full out puzzles to solve, and some more¬†physically¬†just getting to the end without failing.

As you can instantly tell – I’ve also got NCH on-board, as you’ll know ¬†that we’re both working on a few things together too and it’s going really well, he’s a good guy!

I feel that’s all I really need to say at this point – so feast you’re eyes on these beauties!

It's all pretty basic - just get to the end!

So yeah, you always need a diving board in a game right? Wait, you don't? Oh well, it's staying in!

Shark man! Just a random costume for the character.

So yeah, stay tuned for more stuff as this project is pretty close to completion actually! I might be nice and let a few people from twitter and facebook beta test it when it’s ready too ūüėČ
