Sup Internet! Yup, Brad again, popping my head out to say hi yet again. I know things have been even quieter than usual around here, I put a lot of things on hold while working on World 3 / FPA on consoles, and so I’ve been spending a lot of time catching up on those things recently (fixing up the house taking up the most time lately).
But, not to worry! There’s still plenty going on behind the scenes, even if there’s no new big game announcements at this moment.
– Cornell Tour Pack for the Grateful Dead: Epic Tour online game
I posted about the Epic Tour a few months back, but now there’s a new tour available online for 99 cents. Various enhancements have made it back to the original levels, and there’s a few levels leading up to the station that are new (and still free!). You’re able to collect 6 multitrack recordings and mix them how you like in the Cornell levels, so I think that’s a really good deal.
The Fancy Box
I’ve been getting the itch to work on something Fancy Pants related lately, so I wanted to start experimenting with features that weren’t able to make it into the FPA console game. I have a 2 player battle mode (Smash Bros. influenced, of course) up and running, but keep an eye out for something that hasn’t been seen by the public yet that I’m very excited about.
Oh, and I’ve made a package available for download that allows anyone to build their own Fancy Pants levels.
No clue where this is going, but I’m not above making an excuse to play with Fancy Pants Adventures a bit more!
Check out the Fancy Box here. Click on 2 players and ‘custom: Level4’ for a ‘smashing’ battle! 2 players could certainly use some beta testing. Normal baddies are a bit broken at the moment, though.
a s and tfgh for player 2, ; ‘ and arrows for player 1.
Check out this thread in the forum to try your hand at creating levels.
That’s it for now, now go make some awesome levels so I can play them and highlight them on the site!
