PAX East, King of the Hill!

Sorry I wasn’t able to give you guys a better heads up, but we’re over at PAX East right now, showing off a new competitive multiplayer mode, King of the Hill!

How does KotH work in a platformer? Quite well, actually!


What’s this? Still more new content? πŸ˜€

I’ll get you guys some footage and more pics once I get to a real Internet connection.

    @Brad: Sweet, but when you mentioned multipalyer, i thought of something slightly different than this, for example capture the flag, or get the most amount of squiggles, races etc. But this is just one of many different multiplayer modes, right? πŸ™‚
    And one more thing, is it possible to switch between other maps? Having only one would be kinda boring, wouldn’t it?

    @KCreator78: Races and KotH are the most competitive multiplayer modes. All of the challenges in Story can be played coopertively, and of course, during story, you’re competing for squiggles every level. There’s definitely many many ways to play the game, and KotH is by far the most direct, fast paced mode. It’s seriously one of my favorite parts of the game, it’s really that good. P2p pencil combat is intense πŸ™‚

    I think I have some footage lying around, lemme see if I can do a quick upload to Facebook before I fall asleep.

    I’ve been wanting to talk about KotH for forever now. If there was ever a reason to unlock the pencil in the Sneak Peek for some practice, that’s it πŸ˜‰

    @Brad: So multiplayer modes can only be found in different levels, which means you have to ”unlock” them first, by finding them? πŸ™‚
    I said this once before, but you probably didn’t see it: What happened to Kabootle? We have not heard about him/her for quite a while now… is he/she still in the game? (Kabootle is still in the character’s section for world 3…)
    And one last thing: Is Kabootle male or female…? πŸ˜›

    @be fancy: King of the Hill is a popular game mode where the players have to stay in a designated area of a map to gain points. This mode is becoming increasingly popular in shooters.(Though i don’t think brad’s going to design it that way in FPA…a little twist maybe?)

    P.S. If you guys are sooooooooo intoxicated with getting the pencil(belive me,i am too)why don’t you just play newgrounds rumble(like i’m doing right now)?that might ease your impaitence for a while(in case you did’nt know,it’s got fpm as a playable character along with the pencil AND a squiggle gun!)…

    @Brad: The game looks AWESOME!!

    @brad: well i get you want more likes i KNOW we can do it but the game for console will come out before the pencil the consel game is the big boost


    oh, sorry – that was a misunderstanding. But GREAT, it’s coming along nicely πŸ™‚ – is it meant to be 30,000 with facebook and twitter together?

    @Brad Yes indeed I would love some sort of update – you’re super fancy game looks awesome btw and I’m loving all these modes! :mrgreen:

    Hey, this looks really fun! I’m really looking forward to this game, any word on approximate release date?(besides Spring 2011)

    PS. Whatever happened to cutie pants girl? i know she’s been captured and all, but will she be playable in multiplayer mode, or will it just be fancy pants man? Either way is good, I’m just curious.


    @julius: are you motioning towards different characteristic abilities with advantages in speed, agility, (strength and mind if needed?). That would be awesome, because i would love to have that!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜›

    @KCreator78: So co-op multiplayer levels are found in the main levels, like the Science room is, Race and KotH are more separated from the main game, they make more sense as hop in hop out gameplay (especially online πŸ˜‰ ).
