I've got good news for the handful of people who enjoyed Feta Feles.

I'm making a sort of remake. it was supposed to be done for a different game jam, but I couldn't finish it in time because of more pressing responsibilities. Basically, it will have similar gameplay but with a much more interesting environment and a few new abilities and enemies. I'm not sure what I will do in terms of the plot. I will try to have one that makes a little more sense, but not too much ; )

For the technomancers in the crowd, it will also be my first project using WebAssembly technology (compiled from Go code). I will probably make it open source like the original game, since it is not too complicated.

No, it didn't take me 3 months. I think that's pretty obvious once you see it. However, I have been busy with my video game, Total Invasion II (shameless plug) (shameless plug).

I also started and scrapped like 3 other episodes.

1 would have featured a return of the Baconists, and the introduction of a new character,

1 would have featured another return of the Baconists, and the introduction of yet another new character,

and 1 would've been a Metal Gear Rising parody.

The funny thing is, I've had those new character's rigs ready for months now, but I just can't find a way to fit them into the plot yet.

The Metal Gear Rising thing didn't go so well; It seems my Raiden impression wasn't as good as I thought it was.

Yet another episode has been made!

This concludes my awkward story ark thing, and we'll be back to no continuity afterward.

This took a but longer because of me developing Super Neckbeard. I have several more game projects planned, (not in Flash, unfortunately), so don't expect a whole lot of updates.

In other news, my next cartoon is not a Cronikles episode, but a parody. A Metal Gear Rising parody.

Mainly because I need to do more parody and satire work to draw in a larger audience, but, uh, I also really want

to make a Metal Gear Rising parody.

What's this!? I HAVEN'T been working on my next terrible cartoon this whole time!?

So yeah, I made another game, Super Neckbeard.

Since it's in flash, I can put it on here, too! Though, in hindsight, I maybe should've picked some other language, flash can't seem to handle all of the *coughcough* HIGH QUALITY VIDEO GAME ACTION *coughcough*.

It could be the framework's fault, but it could also be my fault for being a crappy programmer.

Nevertheless, it's done. I have resumed work on the next episode.

OK, so I haven't started on the next episode yet. (Muffled booing in the background)

I'm still trying to order a new microphone for somewhat better quality stammering.

Meanwhile, the new episode's script has been edited furiously, and it won't turn out like the last episode.

See, I kind of forgot to put the jokes in the last episode. The few jokes that were there were based on specific knowledge. There's aiming for a specific audience, and then there's just inside references.

Also, I've got a rather exciting idea for a new villain in the future. It's a....female?

See subject. It's the second part of whatever weird story arc I'm attempting.

After the final part is done, it will be right back to no continuity.

I don't even know why I started in the first place.

Hey! Just 5 minutes after that last post I found a new video compressor and it works like MAGIC!

It's called Handbrake, it turned 614mb into 13mb.



The quality's the same, but it looks bad in this one because I used Microsoft Video 1 compressor before Handbrake.

Posted by TheTophatDemon - February 9th, 2015

The new episode is done, and it's up on Youtube. HOWEVER, it was 14mb above Newground's 600mb limit, so I can't upload it here for now. I might try to experiment with different compressors, and maybe even different resolutions or framerates, but I will try to get it on here.

Posted by TheTophatDemon - January 30th, 2015

Yeah! Stuff!

The post's title is what the new episode's called. Yeah, I'm changing the title of the series because 'The Cronikles' is kind of difficult to explain to people and search for.

I won't spoil too much, I don't want to hype it up so you'll all be dissappointed I'm not the god of animating. 'Cause I'm not. I do this for fun and to make dumb inside references with my friends.
