No. 2 Combat

Update! Lots have been updated in the Sneak Peek since this post was made, the banner just haven’t been updated! Make sure to check out the latest posts on this site for all the latest news!

You guys want to try out some mighty pencil combat in the Sneak Peek, I want some more Facebook Likes and Twitter Follows.

Would be nice to get some practice in before taking on those jerk pirates, no?

cross swords

So, here’s the deal. If / when we hit 30,000 Likes and Follows put together, I’ll add the pencil, and everyone can start slicing away.

Currently at 8,660, but we’re climbing at a nice pace. Tell everyone you know! Heck, click on both yourself!

If we hit it soon, just think what else I could add to the Sneak Peek for a few more Likes / Follows ; )

    First! I sure hope we get to use the pencil! I already like FPA on Facebook, but I don’t have a Twitter yet. Maybe I’ll make one….


    @brad: what is it with this EVIL bribery?????
    Can you make the likes maybe 10,000 or 15,000?
    I mean it’s a ton of people already none the less
    Well I better go try and make a Facebook!!



    Sorry for duble posting but YOU REMOVED the PENCIL COMPLETELY FROM THE SNEAK PEAK ONLINE!!!!!! 😯 So it was just to tease us that we couldnt use it…. Er…..

    This kind of reminds me of the “I’ll release Madeline MccAnn when I get a thousand likes” Facebook pages. Brad, seriously, EA is starting to turn you into a bit of a tool instead of the awesome indie that you are. The flash version of World Three will just feel like a massive advert now, instead of the awesome flash game that it is…
    I’ll probably unfollow on Twitter just because of this…

  5. DaxterSpeed

    I guess I could give you a nice Like on Facebook if I haven’t already.

    And I could try mention FPA on Twitter some more, but with my gazillion followers (read: idk, about 15) I still won’t make such a big impact :<

  6. Shadow Gamer1

    IMO, 30,000 seems like way too much, but hey, it’s not my game.

    Anyway, why not post it on Newgrounds and other sites you’re popular on? I mean, you’re sure to get a lot more if you post it on other websites.

  7. Minifig3D

    Think about it this way, DS: Your 15 followers tell their followers who in turn tell theirs. Even if they all only have 15 followers, that is over 3000 people all together! [15*15*15=3375]

  8. Brad

    @DaxterSpeed: That’s for understanding πŸ˜‰ Every little bit helps.

    And World 2 has over 110 million plays πŸ˜› Sneak Peek already hit a million, once I add the pencil info to the main menu, numbers should start going up even more.

    About 4k of those Facebook likes was in the last week, should go much faster soon.

    @jackhall: MAAAAYBE. We’ll see how we do with just getting the pencil in there πŸ˜‰

    @ICARAX: It’s exponential, so it is 3375. That’s how virility works. And that’s why viral campaigns are an indie’s best friend.

    @jackhall: Don’t worry about it πŸ˜‰

  9. jackhall

    @brad i hope you can change the likes and follows put together to 15000 because ooooooooooOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO i NNNNNNNNNOEdd the pencil i NNNNEEEEEEEEEEEDDDDDDDDD ittttt OOOOOOOOOOooooooooOOO EEEEEEEEEEEeeeeeeeeEeEEEEEEEEEEEE AAAAAAAAAAAAHhhHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH pleas please please i am dieing i need the pencil i am going to have a HEEEEAAARTTTTTTTTTT attack litteraly i am gonna EEEEEEEEEXXXXXXXXXPLOOOOOOOOOODDDDDDDDEEEEEEEEEE :mrgreen:

    My views are similar to that of Wallross, whom you conveniently didn’t reply to.

    Yeah, I’m following you on Facebook because I still care about your game and I enjoy playing it, but I have to say that the whole “I’ll give you Y if we get XXXX views!” is the kind of stuff I’m accustomed to on Youtube, not a site like this.

    There’s a fine line between hyping and blatant overselling.

  11. ICARAX

    @Brad: how about you add youtube followers to it as well!! pleaaaaaaaaaaasee?? maybe suscribers (1623)???? it would make getting to 30,000 a tiny bit easier.

  12. Minifig3D

    “minifig3d: but you are adding. 15 + 15 + 15 not 15 * 15 * 15. so thats only 45 followers. :(”
    No. See, each of the 15 followers have 15 a piece! And each of those have 15. If the 15 each have 15, that is 15*15, not 15 + 15. πŸ™‚

  13. educkface

    Brad definitely replied to wallross… in the very next post.

    Like Brad said, this is for the greater good.
    He was able to get a surprisingly large amount of freedom from EA when making this game, which allowed him to make the game that he wanted and that he knew would be best game possible.

    With that said, however, he needs to prove to EA that allowing him that freedom was worth it if he wants the chance to do it again. Sales numbers are the best way to do that, and advertising online is the best way spread the word and to get sales.

  14. Vick

    @EVERYONE: 30,000 is fine, sure it SEEMS high but that’s cuz it IS high. The point of a promotion is to PROMOTE somthing, in Brad’s case a lot of the promotion is going to come from the online community that’s known about him for years already (AKA “Word of Mouth”), however, in order to “encourage” us he’s decided to dangle a pencil in front of us and if we comply and WORK at getting word out there, we have the prospect of being rewarded for our efforts. It was never said this would be easy.

    OMG are you serious?! You already know we love Fancy Pants! Oh well, I guess. Your the one who runs this site. But come on! Please don’t tease us! πŸ™ It’s alright though, but it still sucks!!!

  16. Seana360499

    I know this doesn’t relate to this subject, but I have 2 questions. 1, is there a snailshell hole on the demo? And 2, no offense, but you keep saying “FPA coming to console in spring of 2011”. When of spring 2011??? march, april, may???:d Anyways, there’s something I’m really excited about. Iv’e got the technology, so I won’t have to be one of those dumb losers who can’t play it on the console version!!! XD πŸ˜‰ Oh, and by the way, I’m not calling all of you fans out there losers, I promise!!! P.S, I’m sorry, to everyone, that my post is so freaking long and proper!!!

  17. fancy pants fiend

    yea were so close brad just 22,000 more likes and followers then we get a pencil i hope it happens b4 tha game comes out

  18. ICARAX

    @Seana360499: Welcome newcomer! i agree though, when is Spring of 2011? πŸ˜• but dont try to double post too much like you just did. πŸ˜› πŸ˜€

    @Brad: its now 8048!!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

  19. ICARAX

    @Miaow: ikr…. but i try not to. and most of the time, nobody has posted in 1/2 hour!!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜› lol.

    @Brad: 8547!!! πŸ˜›

  20. WeegeeWarrior

    All of you Facebookers out there, make a Twitter account too to help out! If all the Facebook people made Twitter accounts, we’d be a lot closer to getting the pencil.

  21. smileylover

    @WeegeeWarrior: I agree. I’ve been a fan of Fancy Pants for ages, but I don’t have an xbox or anything. Thought I’m sure Seana360399 didn’t mean any harm….

  22. ICARAX

    @Fairly: lol.

    @Applewarrior: another warrior!!!!!

    @everybody: look what i have started!!! 9165!!!!!! πŸ˜› πŸ˜€ B-) :mrgreen: πŸ™„

  23. ICARAX

    @Seana360499: you said that you really didnt mean that in the first comment, so i dunno why people are causing trouble. no harm you have done. πŸ˜› :mrgreen:

    9197!!!! 1 hour and we have 32 likes added!!! rounded to 30. so after 1,000 hours, we should have 30,000 likes!! and thats only because thats how it would be if we started. So we have a lot less time. πŸ˜› hope it makes people feel better. πŸ˜€

  24. WeegeeWarrior

    @Seana360499 It’s ok. No harm done.

    @Facebookers MAKE A TWITTER ACCOUNT TOO PLEASE! We have over 8,000 Facebook Likes, but not even 1,000 Twitter Follows. Please Facebookers, make a Twitter account as well and follow on there too to help.

  25. fancy pants fiend

    cmon it has taken forever to get to 10,000 just giv us tha pencil at 10,000 or we wont be able to get tha pencil until after tha game comes out

  26. ICARAX

    give votes for my idea!! thats already +2 πŸ˜€

    EDIT: OMG We ARE AT 10,010!!!!! πŸ˜€ YEAH!!!!!! WOOOHOOO!!!!!
