Thumb Twiddling


(Just to clarify, I’m in the US, don’t know when it’s hitting for everyone else)

So here we are. Tomorrow is PSN launch, XBLA right after. Can’t say I’ve ever had so much of my future riding on one game before. I’d be a lot more nervous, but I spent a good deal of time today playing around with online. 4 player platforming, no lag, it’s absolutely incredible. King of the Hill matches feel amazing. I’m not sure what Over the Top did to pull off this online wizardry, but I’m blown away by how well it works.

Of course, there’s a lot more to the game than online King of the Hill, and I’m still amazed by the excitement I’m seeing online for the game. We made the best game that we possibly could, so now all I can do is cross my fingers. I don’t think any fans of the original Flash games (hey that’s you guys!) will be disappointed, I’m super proud that we were able to keep the spirit of the Flash games, while still giving way more content than any 10 dollar game has a right to.

To celebrate, I’ll be hopping online for some King of the Hill and Races on the PS3 on Tuesday, and on the 360 on Wednesday. Hmm, wonder if that old Bluetooth headset still works… I’m DrNeroCF on both, see you guys online!

Just don’t forget to play through the Story at your own pace later on, there’s plenty to see and do on that side, too. And I want to see everyone online decked out in crazy accessory combinations, so you’ll have to play some Story mode to earn those!

And I have no idea when exactly the game will be up on PSN, but I promise the wait is worse for me than for you!

(Please don’t ask about Wii or Steam versions in the comments, we hear ya! πŸ˜› )

    @brad I know your probably not thinking about this right now, because you’re to busy celebrating and need a brake and stuff, but I was wondering like when the flash version will come out and are you doing a PC version or not?

    THANKS, and CONGRATULATIONS on the game. I don’t have an xbox or ps3 as you might have guessed but it seems as if everybody loves it, what’s not to love! AWESOME πŸ˜€

    right now im working on getting every level 100% its really hard…. but sooo fun!!

    i cant stop playing its just soo awesome!!!

    @FuzzyLogicBrain: Haha, good eye. Adding new animations into the console game isn’t as easy as just drawing them into Flash. A lot more work goes into getting things coded and animated in that game, so a few of the animations weren’t quite done (we were also fighting against a deadline).

    Whoops, thought all the levels had ceilings :/

    @Waffe: A can agree with a lot of it, combat against pirates isn’t as polished as I would have liked, and I think there’s too many in your way later in the game. Hopefully we’ll be able to do an extra round of polish in an update sometime later, though.

    I REALLY REALLY wanted drop in drop out multiplayer, and the game actually should have worked like NSMBW, where if you die you just continue. Thing with drop in/out is that it’s super ridiculously hard to get it working with online play. Again, gonna have to see if we can patch that up later. Think of it this way, the game can only get better from here πŸ˜‰

    @WJUK: Just like ME2D πŸ˜‰

    @BE FANCY: Would be around the same time, in a few months, if all goes well.

    @KCreator78: Once it’s back online, I will! I need to schedule a time for everyone to get online on the site sometime later.

    Yay the pencil is coming out soon so I get to try it and keep doing so πŸ˜€

    also I get to play the real game 2p πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ™‚

  5. FuzzyLogicBrain

    @Brad thanks! Also when FPM slides down facing the wall, the highest arm disappeared. Yes, I hate being pushed, but I guess I push a little here and there too. πŸ™‚

  6. Joel Huff

    man!!! i just had 2 of my friends over and we played 3 player campain its soo fun!!!!! i loved nailing my friends with my pencil and bouncing on their heads its soo fun!!co op rocks!! best game ever by far!! my favorite!!

  7. tysonwallent

    @Joel Huff: What a surprise, it is the awesomest game eva, I wonder how many people saw this coming, I sure did, you know, see that the fancy pants adventures would be the best game ever, so what a surprise to me, NOT!

    Lol, spell check said that awestruck is a word, odd, I can’t seem to find it in a real dictionary, it should be

  8. tysonwallent

    at my friends right now and just played the game, awesome. I played it for hours but was told to get off :(. I have not yet played king of the hill or any of the arcade but will soon “hopefully” he says, I hope so to πŸ˜› awesome awesome fancy.

  9. tysonwallent

    @brad: I would really like it if you put the pencil up because when I played the game, which was only for like 3 hours, probably the last time I will play it again (not because it is bad, cos it is awesome! but because it was not mine πŸ™ ) , I really liked the pencil combat. add pencil asap please.. πŸ˜€

    Also, can’t wait for world 3, hopefully it will be almost as awesome as the console version. I did end up playing king of the hill, awesome stuff. Me and my mate just had these epic collisions when we both attacked at once but in one of the matches it all came down to the fact that I wouldn’t let him back up and kept punishing him for trying, PENCIL PWNAGE! πŸ˜€

    This is my favourite game eva (even though it already was) there were a few glitches though, but they only happened sometimes so it didn’t overpower at all the games fanciness

  10. KCreator78

    According to the game, there are over 140 outfits and weapons to collect!!!
    Number of outfits and weapons in the game: 141
    Wow, that’s incredible!!! XD

  11. Joel Huff

    @brad: so is world 3 going to be the same as FPA on console just minus the awesome grafics, because fpa on console has the same levels as world 3 looked like it was going to have…..

  12. ICARAX

    @FuzzyLogicBrain: Heh, SPIDER PWNAGE! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜› :mrgreen: but they are different colors, so they should do different things, so i would leave it be. πŸ™‚ in my opinion at least. πŸ˜€ πŸ˜‰ :mrgreen: πŸ˜†

  13. Waffe

    @Brad with the pirates that are in your way, are you still able to skip over them to advance? I mean, is there room for really fast speed run times?

  14. KCreator78

    I can’t find the micro trial in world 2 lvl 3… and I also found some invisible platforms in that lvl, so does that mean the micro trial is invisible too, and in that case, where is it?
    There are some other glitches in world 1-2 too, like for example if you wear a hat, you can at some levels see your normal hair come out of the hat when doing certain moves…

    And something really weird happened when I was playing rolling bayou, I jumped off a platform in the air, and I was going to land on a platform right beside of one of the lakes, but instead he got stuck inside of the platform, because he dived into it instead of landing normally on it… so he then swam inside of the platform, and he couldn’t move… luckily he flew out of the platform a short while later πŸ™‚

    *blows dust off login button* Whew! Been a while since I’ve been on here. Hope the game turns out as cool as it looks (even though I don’t have video game consoles or anything like that).

  16. tysonwallent

    uhhh, for me it is the waiting game to get the pencil on the sneak peek πŸ™ Jeez, I really want to go back to my friends and play the fancy pants adventures again, it is so awesome. I need a ps3 πŸ˜›

  17. ICARAX

    I JUST GOT THE GAME, AND UNLOCKED THE PENCIL!!!! πŸ™‚ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜› :mrgreen: cant wait until tomorrow when i can play without my sister and it will go so much faster! even though it was really fun having pencil fights with her. she is smaller than me, and she actually did really great! I LOVE THIS GAME!!! AND THIS PENCIL!!!! πŸ˜€ :mrgreen: πŸ˜† πŸ˜†

  18. tysonwallent

    @ICARAX: You seem surprised that the game is the awesomest game ever, and yes the pencil combat is awesome, which is why I would like it on the sneak peek so I can use it whenever I want πŸ˜€

  19. Seana360499

    @ICARAX: I couldn’t have said it better myself!!! πŸ˜€ I just beat the main storyline a couple of minutes ago, and my dad thinks it’s awesome because I only just got it last evening!!! Lol

  20. KCreator78

    @ICARAX: You’re right, I played a few levels with my older sister, she made things a lot harder than when I played the game just for myself and the same when I played with a friend of mine… instead of using about 10-20 minutes per level, we used about 40 minutes!

    I wanna play online multiplayer, but PSN is still not working… πŸ™

    @Waffe: How did you change your picture? πŸ˜•

  21. coolman1083

    Yay! I don’t an X-Box or PS3, so I’ll have to go to my friend’s house, but still! I can’t wait to slowly hint at my friend to invite me over! πŸ™‚
    *Trying not to mention steam or Wii* Hey Brad, Tried the 3DS yet? FPA would be fun on that.
