You probably know me for my Flash game series, The Fancy Pants Adventure.

Happy ’10!

Should be a good year for Fancy Pants Man!

Rural Squiggleville. I’m still experimenting the exact graphic style of World 3, so this is still pretty rough, but I’d love to get some early feedback from everyone out there. The idea is to refine the style and art, but keep everything looking handdrawn, which is no where near as easy to do as I had hoped it would be. I know I’m a much better animator than background artist, but hey, might as well try, right?

And remember, that’s 5 independently scrolling backgrounds there, just like in the swimming videos. Far more work, but I’d say the parallax effect is worth it.

Christmas World 2 again!

I just uploaded the Christmas build of World 2 back to Mochi, play it here!

I’m pretty sure that that’s the latest build… maybe…

And the original thread with some goofy Christmas art in it!


And be sure to check out Fairly’s review of the first two Professor Layton games below. A pretty good way to understand more about World 3 is to understand how we both feel about the games we play. Remember, I’m just a gamer making games that I would want to play!

Heads Up

Sorry for the utter lack of updates on World 3 (though that seems to be the norm nowadays, eh?), keep a heads up, though, Ill be posting some new footage sometime tonight or tomorrow 😀

Good stuff, I promise.

I’ve been adding all the engine refinements from ME2D back into FPA. Crazy how much better the game looks with character rotational smoothing. No more jitters, yay!

Fancy Pants Man now has 3 separate run cycles, want to add a whole bunch of different jumps too. I’m nuts. Got a lot of animating ahead of me. Good thing I love animating.

Fancy Metroid


So when I’m not doing concept work for World 3, I’ve been playig Super Metroid. Never beat it before, so I figured I should buy it from the Wii VC and do just that. Amazing game. So, I’ve gotten a few emails and such asking about puzzle elements in FPA, nothing overpowering, but what would you guys think of some sort of level or character progression in World 3?

Picture 50

Hey guys, so I’m trying out a new sidebar thingy, something that would allow me to make smaller posts that don’t push down more important posts (like pictures of various pets on my shoulders).

What do you think of the idea? Is the site too thick now? Should I just sell my soul and finally get a twitter to place up here?

some animatings

So Flipnote Studio was just released on the DSi for download, and I like animating so I played around with it a bit:

Of course I go and find a bunch more options that would have helped out more after finishing the thing (a guide layer, particularly), but hey, it’s a fun little program, good for practice. I have to go upload all the pictures from Comic Con somewhere and I’ll make another post soon. Got some new test animation for World 3 that I’ll post after that, heh.

Delayed flight = missing all subsequent flights = travelling all day = teh suck


They need to update the SkyMall magazine, some of the crazy scams in there are already outdated by crazier, more futuristic sounding scams!

I just realized that there’s an ad on the back of the magazine… Isn’t the whole thing a magazine full of ads…?

Getting married and all that

Hey everyone, I know I haven’t been updating lately, even after promising that I was going to kick start updates (which did last for a little while there, especially with E3 providing some nice topics of conversation for anyone with their eyes on the gaming industry), but, well, Fairly and I have been crazy busy lately, as we’re getting married on July 11th (and you can check out the engagement post from some time back here). Yep, that’s this Saturday! Craziness! Just wanted to give one last blog post as a single dude, since there will probably be yet another period of broadcast silence after this post.

First off, there was a bit of progress made on World 3 that I announced earlier. I haven’t really had a chance to work on World 3 much since then, but development on World 3 will begin officially after Fairly and I get back from ComicCon at the end of this month. Hopefully there will be a whole bunch more updates once that starts, as I really want to keep everyone updated on World 3’s progress along the way, get feedback on the progression, and hopefully try to involve everyone out there in the development in some sort of way. Should be fun.

A call to arms!

Addicting games is having a contest, and Fancy Pants Man is up for the most Courageous Stick Figure Stunt award! And if you don’t believe that traveling to the depths of a cave to wake up the sleeping Angry Penguin isn’t the most courageous stunt that you can think of (besides maybe getting his tasty ice cream cone back from the Angry Rabbit), what you doing on my internets??


Being Courageous, Serious Business!
