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


Alright guys, to try to simultaneously fan the flames and squash hopes at the same time here.

So as you’ve probably noticed, I’m super busy right now, which is bad for the weekly reports, but trust me, is very good for World 3 (a combination of working on really cool later levels, in addition to ???).

As for the beta / demo, got a few awesome surprises brewing right now that will be out first, so that’s still a bit of a ways off.

Going to try go get a video up this Friday (today?), but we’ll see, more important serious business to attend to first.

What could be a-brewing, though? Hmmmmm…

World 3 Report 26

Man, I sound so out of it in this video. Crazy week, very very tired. Anyways, a look at the inbetweened mouse who can now look down, and some sketched concepts for some sea creatures. Which do you guys like best?

Sleep time! Catch you guys around.

World 3 Report 24

-I’m going to sleep, but it wasn’t processed yet, so if it’s not working, check back in a few minutes-

A quick look at some early code that gets the baddies reacting to water, and a slightly more interesting look a the Angry Duck’s unique in water behavior. That little guy just never runs out of excuses to be angry.

World 3 Report 18

Sorry about the wait, but it was a double-y special weekend! So here’s a big ol’ two part report to make up for it!

A few sketches and discussion, and a look at how I set up levels in FPA for the curious out there.

Probably should wait and make sure you’re watching it in HD…

E3 ’10 Predictions!

We all know that E3 doesn’t REALLY start until Nintendo’s conference, but I’m still wasting some time before Microsoft gets to show me their version of casual gaming with a terrible product name: (Insect! Er, Knicted! or something… ), so here are my predictions for this year’s E3, and a place where we can all talk about the stupid things that all 3 companies do!

Getting the obvious out of the way:

– Kinect is a stupid word.
– Gears of War 3 will be shown, I’m hoping it’s more like GoW1 and less like 2.
– Kinect / Natal still looks silly.
– Milo will be back and creepy as ever.
– Halo: Reach campaign will be shown, and will be awesome.

– Zelda will totally be sweet and I might forgive Nintendo for 30 minutes of sales charts because of it.
– Pikmin 3 will rock.

– Everyone in the media will instantly forget they ever played Wii Sports Resort and pretend like Move is something new.

Less obvious guesswork:

– MS will try to show some core games working with Nat…Kinect, using a controller while also tracking body lean and head movement.
– bunch of core game sizzle trailers to make us feel like us real gamers haven’t been forgotten.
– MGS Rising footage for the omgz the Xbox has MGS! Shock value
– Connect Fit, nuff said.

– Wiimote pointer controlled Starfox.
– New Retro game (though IGN’s insisting that it’s a new Donkey Kong game, which wouldn’t have been my first guess…).
– Zelda Wii controls super awesomely and is very beautiful.
– 3DS totally owns PS3’s version of 3D for the sole reason that it doesn’t require stupid glasses and a screen that’s unviewable to anyone not wearing them (not needing to buy a whole new TV is a plus, too).

– Going to try very very hard that Wii isn’t 300 times better than Move at FPS games.
– Another Play, Create, Share game? I dunno.
– PSP2 will have 2 analogue sticks… Probably…

Update: I’m pretty sure the 3DS will be able to play virtual console games (not sure if it’ll be the same store or separate, since it would require different emulators, hoping it would just be the same, like the PSP and PS3), but the 3DS SHOULD be able to play n64 games in 3d, since it’s emulating them, and there’s not all that many on the store, so it wouldn’t be hard to test them all.
