Game Progress

2016-02-05 17:29:48 by TomFulp

For the past three years I've been working on a console / PC game with @JohnnyUtah. @Spazkid came onboard too and @Oney has been doing music. Expect a ton of familiar NG voice talents when all is said and done.

We've been pretty silent about it because it's a big project and if we show too much too soon, it might feel like an old game by the time it actually comes out. I posted this Vine of it though so I thought I should share it! Turn up your volume because it's quiet (also click the speaker in the bottom right corner to enable Vine audio).

UPDATE: Vine shut down so the Vine content I had posted here is now gone.

At some point we'll do a more official reveal and stop being all secretive. It's gonna be a really neat game. Right now we're getting the other playable characters working so people can try them at Pico Day this May.

Looks neat as hell


2016-02-05 18:07:28

Looking good, can't wait to see more


2016-02-05 18:14:49

Looks so good! Really polished!


2016-02-05 18:22:55

Ayy. Nice, tom


2016-02-05 18:36:21

Looking SO nice! I really wish I could make it to Pico Day this year and play this... I have a final scheduled for school that conflicts though... should I throw away my future for this?!

Looks like it's pretty far along!

TomFulp responds:

That could be our marketing slogan, "A game worth throwing away your future for."


2016-02-05 18:55:32

It says JohnnyUtah in the top left AND bottom right. Is he the hero and the villain!?
If so, this will be the perfect game!

TomFulp responds:

He's placeholder text. :P


2016-02-05 20:20:51

That is awesome Tom! I remember you showing us this two years ago at Pico Day. I'm looking forward to playing this!


2016-02-05 20:29:40

Looks awesome. !


2016-02-05 20:31:34

I am not a familiar enough voice talent to be invited into your super awesome game :( seriously very excited for real. Despite my passive aggressive opening sentence.


2016-02-05 20:57:57

It looks pretty interesting!!


2016-02-05 21:27:38

What is it made on? :P

TomFulp responds:

Updated version of Castle Crashers tools, where I work with Flash in AS2 and it ports over and runs as C++.


2016-02-05 22:11:26

cant wait to play at pico day! Question, when i bring my camera, would i be allowed to film anything of the game or get an interview from you guys about it?

TomFulp responds:

Don't want to do any filming because we don't want to expose everything too early. Maybe interview stuff, we do need to get more public about it.


2016-02-05 22:30:37

I don't get how you manage to juggle so many projects / businesses at once WTF

TomFulp responds:

It's not the most ideal scenario now that I'm in the middle of it.


2016-02-05 22:58:40

Not much to go on but I'll play it...


2016-02-06 01:31:01

Wish the audio was a little louder but either way it looks cool.


2016-02-06 04:17:51

Little teaser once in a blue moon doesn't hurt, something to wet the appetite and show people what adventures you're having behind the curtains.

Looks pretty polished already actually, well, artwise anyway.


2016-02-06 04:30:28

Looks awesome!


2016-02-06 05:51:59



2016-02-06 06:04:22

Nice looking so far and it sounds like the villain says: 'Hey Hugh HefNER!' Right!? Or maybe: 'Hey the new HefNER!' I don't know why but I always hear Hefner.


2016-02-06 07:00:27

Looking forward to it :)


2016-02-06 07:46:44

Looking good indeed!


2016-02-06 15:15:30

console plebs DansGame


2016-02-06 20:38:04

I'm actually really excited to see this and how it turns out.


2016-02-06 20:43:24

Wow! This has Master Johnny written all over it. Excited to play the finished product. I've played Castle Crashers literally like 70 times in a row. Remember the level up glitches? Hahaha, good times.


2016-02-07 11:31:40

Oh, what's this? More incredible work? Tch. How surprising. Why don't you guys do something new for once and make a shitty game... Sheesh.... ;)


2016-02-07 19:42:24

So glad the animation in the games your team makes look like chibi versions of what they would actually look like. Very progressive! You've changed like not at all. I can tell it wasn't from limitations oh no it's because you guys chose this animation style on purpose


2016-02-07 20:47:02

Hope its as good as Castle Crashers and Battleblock, but I have faith.


2016-02-07 23:52:46

I prefer to hear next to nothing until it's time for release. I hate seeing cell phone video of that people captured of movies being filmed, or when someone caught a pic of the new Batmobile and posted it; it ruins some of the specialness of finding out when you're SUPPOSED to find out. It has also spoiled part of movies- and even FULL movies, when yo find things out. So yeah, feel free to be as secret as necessary! You'll keep it fresh instead of old.


2016-02-08 03:11:01

Looks great, Tom. Looking forward to it


2016-02-08 03:13:20

I've spent over 500 hours between most behemoth titles and various games by the ng talents. This game simply looks as pleasant and explosive as it sounds but smells of high velocity Newgrounds Super Contra- and I love it.


2016-02-08 16:12:54

Yeah i figured thats why i asked, defo a good idea not to. Awesome! Well yeah im probably coming friday night, i just really gotta figure out expenses and all that. I wish i had one of those hand mics but only got a cam mic xD. It'll be a good The Dish Out interview.

I'm actually planning on bringing that show back but animated with some artists, with some live action stuff but maybe not as much. Coming back with a new format to review more of Newgrounds' stuff. :) If it gets popular on NG, it could help artists get exposure. Gotta test waters though. It's a work in progress :x


2016-02-19 11:13:15

I've been looking forward this game since I saw your signature with the bossy looking pig. This game screams personality. Can't wait to see the official trailer. :)


2016-02-19 17:52:32

I can honestly say I've never seen a 2D game with better/cooler graphics!

TomFulp responds:

Woah thanks!


2016-02-20 04:34:12

Looking good! :)


2016-02-20 08:16:18

The animation looks really smooth!


2016-02-20 22:41:42

Oh man I'm really looking forward to this game :O

I don't even know what its about, but the fact that you are involved makes me feel like this will be something big xD


2016-02-24 11:23:27

I can dig it


2016-03-02 09:24:22

This game looks so damn awesome. I watched the piggy bank boss vine so many times already.

Out of curiosity, what did the piggy bank boss fully say? I could only make a little out.


2016-03-12 17:26:20

so good


2016-03-24 00:45:46

Just a Thought , you should incorporate the scouting that you have in the audio and art portal into the general flash portal , that way there would be far less spam / garbage submissions that Pass judgement phase .


2016-03-25 18:11:42

Looks like a fun game.

Also, I couldn't help but notice your location. If it's correct, then I'm living pretty close to a very important person.


2016-03-26 04:20:45

Excellent, can't wait. Me and my roommates had a ton of fun with the ol Castle Crashers. You combined new console mechanics with the old perfect cartoon flash style. Was very inspiring for my stuff.


2016-03-27 13:28:48

I am way excited for this game.


2016-03-28 11:46:37

Wicked sweet Father Tom. Been waiting since I was a wee youth for this game.


2016-03-29 11:51:47

Dude! This looks amazing!!! I saw @Spazkid streaming some work on it, I'm super excited for it. Looks like a lot of fun! :D


2016-03-30 10:59:44

I'm pretty sure I hear "Maybe we'll give Joel an extension on his dept and use his skeleton as collateral." In the piggy bank vine.


2016-03-30 11:00:05

debt* scuse me


2016-04-01 12:33:59

Looks really good. I'd buy it.


2016-04-20 13:40:12

Oooh! the new background image by beekart is great! Newgrounds looks good in blue! :D

TomFulp responds:

Yeah it makes me feel super calm now while I browse around!


2016-04-27 01:21:16

Looks amazing man!
